Costco is known far and wide for its excellent deals and bulk buys. Many of us have turned to the retail giant to stock up on snacks, kitchen necessities—even furniture. But even die-hard fans may not realize the store is also a treasure trove of fancy finds. Costco’s gourmet food selection is loaded with restaurant-worthy offerings, like huge jars of caviar and 12-pound packs of prosciutto. Because honestly, don’t we all deserve to score our day-to-day necessities and our most indulgent splurges in the same place?
Costco’s gourmet food selection may not be as vast and varied as its snack selection, but its array of fancy foods does not disappoint. Seafood favorites—like whole Dungeness crab ($149.99) and cold water lobster tails ($199.99)—are abundantly on offer. Steak is available in 44 different formats (and at 44 different price points), with Costco’s Wagyu beef 41-pound locker pack topping the indulgence charts at a whopping $1,999.99. As if that weren’t enough, the store even sells vintage Dom Perignon. Customers can score a 2008 Brut and a 2006 Rosé for $469.99. That’ll surely run you a pretty penny—but then again, it is vintage Dom Perignon.
Now, let’s be real—very few of us are going to integrate any of these luxurious finds into our day-to-day routines. (Lobster may be delicious, but who wants to triple their weekly grocery spend?) Still, knowing we can score these gourmet delights—if we ever decide we want them—is its own kind of empowering. Because it means “treating yourself” is no longer a matter of taking a trip to a fancy restaurant near you. Indulgence is a thing you can gift yourself, whenever the moment seems right—no reservations (or leaving the house) required.
