Costco Wholesalepropal avocados are horrible!


I bought a package of Propal large Hass avocados from Chile. Major regret. These avocados were probably picked way too early and then frozen because by the time the rind ripens to almost rotting 90% of the rest is like cardboard and unfit for human consumption. I'm going to stop buying vegetable produce from CostCo entirely based on CostCo's habit of shipping food around the world like they're lawnmowers. It's a neat experiment but it clearly didn't work.

    Other produce you stock like meats and cheese are fine. They freeze well for transport, apparently. The tiramisu from Italy was especially good. However just because avocados are impossible to find in California this year doesn't mean you can just import them from the other side of the planet and still call them edible. You're just ripping people off at that point. Stop it.
