Well, not Kirkland, but you get what I’m saying.

I was at my Costco (Richmond, Cali) yesterday and they had fresh white truffles for $1,799.99 per pound.  No kidding.  Really.  Not behind any kind of glass or protected by armed guard.  Out in the open in a case next to other stuff for $8.99 a pound.  Not to be believed.  I thought I’d seen it all. 

These truffles are more valuable than the jewelry or cameras they sell.

Have a wonderful holiday season!

  1. Wow, what a pricetag! I’m surprised they don’t have any inventory controls on those treasures. Still with Costco prices they’re out of my league. But I can almost smell ’em!

      Hi, Heather! I’ll bet they’ll show up next time under some kind of protection – or at least in another kind of packaging. Yeah – way too pricey for me, too.
