Reply to "Caviar and Ebay/Costco"

Well, I went ahead and bought some beluga caviar from Costco. $55 for two ounces. It comes in a jar which is sealed in a plastic container as well. I'll post a tasting note after we open it.

In my quest for beluga caviar, I searched high and low. Our local Crown liquor store was selling Russian beluga for $144 for 2 ounces. My local Publix supermarket had Russian beluga for $90 for 2 ounces, and Iranian beluga for $100 for 2 ounces. The internet ranged in prices from extraordinarily high to questionably low. I was concerned about some of the web-sites I found, where there was no information on the seller's location or phone numbers. Other internet sites were very trustworthy, of course. But even the lowest prices on the internet were no better than Costco (except for Ebay - which I suspect is grey market).

So, in the end, there was nothing that could touch Costco's price (and I was not about to buy any from Ebay).
