My new favorite food, again. when we went to Maui last year, we stopped at Costco and picked up a few groceries. I found these great oats and grabbed myself a bag. Loved 'em. So, I threw the half eaten bag in my suitcase and brought them home with me. I was a bit stingy with them for the rest of the year because I was unable to find them anywhere here at home.
Then, lo and behold when we went to Costco on the Big Island, I found my long lost favorite brand of oatmeal. I wanted to buy 2 bags--one to eat there and one to bring home, but then I remembered that I had only brought 1 carry-on and I didn't have room for extra oats. So, I only bought 1 bag. Oh they are yummy. I looked at Costco's website and they are not listed as one of their products so I assumed it must just be a local product.
But, I looked online and found out that they are located in California and I can order them online. And even better...I can order by the case.
1 case, 12 bags (48 oz. each) (Each bag contains about 34 servings) is $45.25. So, one of these days, I think I might be ordering myself a year's supply of oats.
**remember that purse I bought in Hawaii? well, there was just enough extra room to slip in the half eaten bag of oats, so I did get to bring some home after all.
**BTW, if you see these oats anywhere around town, let me know or just buy me a bag for my birthday.
