A friend of mine gave me a gift. A big gift. Perhaps a near perfect gift.Check it out:For the photo, to provide some perspective, I placed an ordinary jar of Nutella next to the dynamic duo she bought at Costco. Can you see and appreciate the dramatic difference? Each of the big jars contains twice the little jar.That’s a lot of Nutella.I can get the regular jar (that will from this point forward be considered mini) at Target for about $2.99. It’s one of our splurges. She got these two shrink-wrapped together at Costco for about $8.00. We compared weight and price. If you bought the same amount in the mini size jar, we figured it would only cost $2.00.So run, people! Run to Costco with a friend and plunk down your eight bucks, split the pack so you each get a mega-jar of Nutella of your very own, grab a loaf of French bread, and head home to enjoy le gouter. It may be the last small pleasure we can afford during these volatile economic times.
