Tomato paste is used in so many things we cook. Many meals, from pasta to a lamb shank in the slow cooker, use it as a flavour base and we tend to go through a bit of it. Buying it in bulk from Costco is a great idea if you are the kind of household that goes through it or even to split the costs with your friends and family for a smaller quantity each.
We like it in the little sealed tubs. They are 140g each, and if we don’t use a whole tub we can keep it in the fridge a a period of time after opening for the next meal that will use it which is reasonably regularly in our house. Costco’s Australian stores sell it as a 12 pack of 140g tubs, where supermarket sell it as a 2 pack of the same size tub. If you buy it from Costco is bulk you are looking at about a 20% saving in unit cost. Have a look at the table below for more details.
