Living in Hong Kong, Costco is one of the stores unavailable here that I miss most. Back home, most of us on the ZipX team have many memories of going to Costco on weekends and buying great products at great prices in bulk. Hong Kong doesn’t have any Costcos unfortunately, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get their great products here!
Here are five Costco favorites that are very popular with ZipX users:
The benefits of olive oil are very well-known. It is rich in healthy fats, contains antioxidants, and is good for the heart. It may also decrease the risk of breast cancer. In addition to the health benefits, it also tastes great and is a key component to many Mediterranean cuisines.
Kirkland’s Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is one of the best value olive oils you can buy in the market. It tastes great, and it is one of the few olive oils that was actually confirmed as “extra virgin” in a University of California Davis study to determine how many extra virgin olive oils are actually “extra virgin”.
What else more can be said about this Canadian specialty? Nothing goes better on your pancakes than good ol’ maple syrup (Table syrup is NOT the same thing!). Kirkland has an organic maple syrup that comes in a 1L bottle to fulfil all of your maple syrup cravings.
ZipX is a big fan of the Kirkland salt and pepper grinders! They have simplistic design and are easy to refill when you run out. This 3-pk set gives you pepper, as well as two choices of salt: pink Himalayan or classic sea salt. Himalayan salt is one of the purest salts you can find, with 84 minerals and elements that are good for your health and absent in regular processed salt. This pack is a great way to try it out!
Many of us here at ZipX are very health conscious, and we are big fans of peanut butter. It is a great source of protein, tastes great, and it is extremely versatile as an ingredient. Not all peanut butters are created equal however, and regular processed peanut butter contain hydrogenated oils and sugar that may be detrimental to your health. With Kirkland’s organic peanut butter, you can eliminate all these ingredients and have a purer, healthier option.
Tide Pods have been in the press recently for the wrong reasons, but they are a must-have for any busy household. Using them is simple, just pop it in and turn the machine on! Best of all, the amounts of product inside are accurate so you don’t have to worry about not having the right amount of detergent or stain remover in your cycle. This 152 count box will last you many many cycles, which is perfect because who has time to go detergent shopping?
Until next time,
