Default What kind of regional awesomeness does your Costco carry?

I live in the SF Bay Area, and three (so presumably all) of the Costcos here sell Mexican Coca-Cola in bottles (real sugar, not HFCS). It's great, if a little pricey (something like $18 for a case of 24 12-oz bottles).

I'd imagine the access to the CA wine country makes the local selection of wines better/cheaper than other parts of the country, and there's a pretty good assortment of fresh seafood available.

While on vacation on Kauai, the Lihue Costco had a cold case setup where they were selling different types of poke, as well as fresh ahi sashimi plates, and many fresh local fishes (ono, marlin, mahi mahi, and kanpachi IIRC).

Where do you live, and what does your Costco have?

My Costco has nothing special that I am aware of besides a local fish market thing every couple of weekends where they sell crabs, and crab legs and fresh seafood.

I love Costco's steaks, croissants and bagels.

it's true, the wine at california costcos is so much better that every time my parents come to visit they bring an empty suitcase to stock up.

I don't think ours has anything special. Nothing there has seemed regional to me anyway.

Colorado is the same, much to the chagrin of my sister and brother-in-law.

In Northern California, there are cheaper bottles by the pallet on the floor and then a separate section where they sell (I guess "more expensive" doesn't necessarily mean "better") more pricey wines, some into the three figures.
