    It's Kerrygold at ours. It's by the fancy cheese section, not with the "regular" buter.

      Gah! We have Kerrygold cheddar, but no butter. I am visiting family in Naperville, IL and there's Kerrygold butter in the regular grocery stores here. I have to go to Whole Foods or Trader Joe's.

        I didn't see any grass fed meats but did find organic beef and chicken. The coconut oil was $15.99 for 54 oz which was a good deal.

        i renewed my membership based on this.

As long as your not leaving it out in the sweltering heat you should be good. I usually transfer mine to an old spaghetti jar that I've run through the diswasher, so that could be an option if you really wanted to play it safe.
          How do you know that they weren't in sweltering heat before being shipped to the Costco you bought it from? I know it's highly paranoid of me to ask, but just wondering.

            No way to tell really. The distribution company is Carringting Farms out of NJ. It says Organic/cold pressed/ from the Phillipines. Probably comes from the same lot as all the other companies out of the Phillipines.

              Now that we are getting back on our feet, financially, this is one of the items on my 'stock up' list. I can't wait until I have ten jars lined up in my spare room. I feel certain the sight will give me a warm feeling all over.

                For the Canadian peeps I just bought 1.5KG (58 OZ) tub of Carrington Farms cold pressed organic coconut oil at the Edmonton West Costco for $16.99 which is a very good deal.
                Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                  I was gonna mention but was beat to it, that yes, the coconut oil is in Canadian Costco's too.

I remember an article about Canadians crossing the border just to go to Costco, and some of the Americans there having a serious (and lame) attitude problem about it. Maybe there just wasn't one in that partular part of Canada.
                  Costco is an international company, with stores across the Canada, the UK, Mexico, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and now into Australia as of last year.

Costco is pretty cutting edge for a mainstream store - grass-fed butter, grass-fed ground beef and they are opening their own beef processing plant in California soon. I think they want to source more grass-fed beef and found they couldn't do it without the processing plant. Hope, hope, hope!
                    In the KC Costcos we have the same coconut oil as well as Kerrygold butter (and cheese). No grass-fed beef (ground or otherwise). Here's hoping though...

                      Woo hoo, just found it in the south Winnipeg Costco as well. It's the FIRST TIME EVER that I've seen coconut oil at all in a Canadian Costco. Same brand and price as Dirlot found in Edmonton. Needless to say, I bought 2 jars. I pay around that much for half the amount of Nutiva at Superstore.

                            I was going to post about this!
                            What are your guys' thoughts on Costco as a primal resource in general? I used to shop there to save money but have since joined a co-op and am enjoying the local grass-fed burger an awful lot, even though its pricey. I was thinking of going back for some produce, fruit and dairy. Their half-gallon cartons of heavy cream lasted forever and I loved them, but I wanted to be as grass fed as possible.
                            Also in mine, there isn't a lot of grass fed meat. Maybe some ground beef but I'm not sure. The organic chicken was all skinless, boneless chicken breast--yuck. I miss steak and steak-like cuts of beef. I can't afford them at the co-op ($25ish/lb for grass fed! I don't trust the stuff at the regular grocery store anymore)

                            No, I'll fall.
                            Come to the edge.
                            No, it's too high.
                            Come to the edge.
                            I came
                            She pushed
                            And I flew

                                I love Costco, although spring-autumn we try to use CSA/local produce and I buy (almost) all my meat from local grass-fed/pasture farmers.

                                What I buy from Costco (food): EVOO (just got in some nice Tuscan I've tried before), aforementioned coconut oil, King Oscar sardines in olive oil, wild-caught fish, smoked salmon, pickled herring, "in a pinch" fruit and veggies, lots of different cheeses, the occasional rack of lamb ribs, herbs and sea salt, Pellegrino sparkling water, heavy cream...
