The excitement grows as Costco shoppers discover the new cheddar and gouda cubed cheese bags in the deli section. While people like the packaged simplicity, the “grate” deal is more than just avoiding extra kitchen prep.
Costco sells a two-pound block of sharp cheddar in its refrigerated section. While prices may vary, the block has a retail price of $5.84 ($2.92 per pound). In contrast, the cubed cheese is $2.52 a pound. Buying the bulk cubed cheddar not only saves time; it also saves money.
While many Costco shoppers seek cost-saving items, there’s also value in the cheese’s easy-to-serve nature. This five-pound offering could be part of an abundant holiday cheese board, an appetizer, or even a component of a girl dinner. Other choices include a simple snack, a mac and cheese ingredient, or the foundation for a sauce or soup.
