Just a quick note about my having seen and purchased whole smoked whitefish at the Richmond, California, Costco the other day. My guess is that they are carrying this for Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Recall that this Costco carried Acme Smoked Fish Corporation’s whole smoked whitefish and smoked whitefish salad for a couple of years, and then both products disappeared all of a sudden a few months ago, to my disappointment. I wrote them a couple of cards about this, begging them to bring back the whitefish salad, at least, and to provide samples to shoppers because most people around here have no idea what this is and how good it tastes.
I was happy to see the whole whitefish, since I can make whitefish salad from it, but I am asking the people who monitor blogs on behalf of Costco (come on – you know you do this – there are numerous indicators) to ask the Richmond branch to bring back both products for the months of December and January. Please. I beg you. Have a heart for this ex-New Yorker.
Now we can ring in 5770 in style!
