Having ready-to-go, flavoured cous cous in the cupboard in great if need a quick dinner accompaniment to go with your main meal. Having Ainsley Harriott’s Spice Sensation cous cous in bulk from Costco in the cupboard means one less thing to worry about on those busy evenings when dinner is sandwiched between getting home from work or walking the dog and the kids’ sport training or a late meeting. This ready flavoured cous cous means you just have to add hot water which is easy to do when you have other things on the stove or in the oven.
Now Costco’s Australian stores, of course, only have one Moroccan style flavor and is in bulk, 1.5kg tubs. But if you are a family that uses it even once a week trust me, you will go through it. If you shop on the supermarket chains they also have Aisnley’s cous cous in smaller packets and other flavours, and if either of those appeals to you them that is great. However if you want to get the best value for money on this tasty dinner accompaniment, then Costco is the place to get it.
Just have a look at the price table below, Costco’s unit cost is less than half that what you will get it at either Coles or Woolworths. The other advantage I see with buying it this way is that you only need to prepare the amount your family will eat, minimising wastage or half used packets of cous cous floating around in the pantry.
