olive and feta tapenade costo sample

In the container it looks like some one ate it and rejected it, however the saltiness of the katamala olives and the Feta cheese work off one another. Having this as a sample helped me over come my fears about buying a costco sized tub of ugly chutney. This would be a great appetizer to go with wine.

Coconut covered cashews sample at costco

This costco sample takes decadence to a new level, or at least the same level as chocolate covered nuts. Take fatty nut (which is really a fruit seed.) Then use sugar to get coconut to stick to it. The result is a rather tasty snack that one could say is healthy because it is "natural." The four nuts for the sample seemed just right, I wonder how long it takes a person to finish the whole costco bag of them.

Amy's veggie lasagna costco sample

I was glad to see a new Amy's item, especially to see it on sample at costco of course. It was decent the sauce was not too over bearing. I think costco is the only place one should buy Amy's food otherwise the pricing is just too high. If I recall correctly it was a 6 pack and the unit price was quite low for this brand. The sample it self was very hot fresh out of the oven. Which also makes me wonder how using the old microwave would change the taste.
