Guess what I saw at Costco the other day? Bolani!
You’ve probably seen them at any number of SF Bay Area farmers markets, they’re those baked stuffed flatbreads by East and West Gourmet Afghan Food. They also make the very yummy sauces to go with the flatbreads. I’ve written before about their spinach bolani in detail here.
They were doing a “roadshow” at Costco – giving out samples like there’s no tomorrow. Two packs of bolani for $8.99, the sauces come in 3-pack combos for $11.49 (At Whole Foods, the bolani is $5.79 for one pack and the sauce is $4.99 each). Everything is vegan except for the Garlic Mint Cheese, make sure you look at which combo pack has what.
They’re going to be doing the roadshow thing at various Costco locations in California through the end of the month, but I couldn’t find a schedule of where they’re going to be next. I’m hoping they’ll become a regular Costco item.
Strolling down the aisle towards checkout, there was another vegan food roadshow. What are the chances of that happening? This time it’s earnest eats with their baked whole food bars. I have to admit I’ve never heard of them before trying a sample.
They’re good! Whole foods, minimally processed, no preservatives or artificial ingredients and baked with almond butter – the taste and smell were great.
They were offering three flavors at the roadshow – almond trail mix (my favorite), apple ginger, and cran lemon zest. $10.89 for a box of twelve, they can mix and match the flavors for you. They’ll be a regular item at Costco stores in SF Bay Area and in the LA area starting in June.
