If you love to buy in bulk and stock your pantry with items that can last for months, then you're in for a treat. A brand new Costco catering to businesses but open to all members has launched in Anjou. Around 70% of its products differ from traditional warehouses, many of them so massive that you may need to recruit a few friends to help you get them out the door.

The new Costco Business Centre specializes in large format items for restaurants and grocery stores. That means over 134,000 square feet dedicated to jumbo-sized food products, commercial kitchen wares, and office supplies. You'll find 200-litre vats of cooking oil, 36-kilogram wheels of cheese, and 16-litre buckets of most sauces you can imagine.

But it's not just the items that are supersized, so are the samples. Instead of single crackers or small cups of juice at the ends of some aisles, this Costco hands out whole ice cream sandwiches, candy bars, juice boxes, and even sizeable detergent pod packs. The full-size snacks are especially welcome given that the location doesn't have the usual cafeteria.

This new Costco Business Centre is the sixth of its kind in Canada and the chain plans to open more, so you can get used to shopping bigger!

Price: $28.99 for 1,100 teabags.

The price isn't steep for this epic bag of tea. The usual Costco portion is 300 bags for $10.99, so you could split this with a few friends and still have some left over.

Honey, Maple Syrup & Olive Oil Drums

Price: $1,999 for the BeeMaid Honey; $2,499 for the Bernard Maple Syrup; $999 for the Terra Delyssa Olive Oil.

These 200L metal cylinders are the ultimate large format cooking necessity. Of course, if you're looking for a bit less quantity there's always the 15L tub of BeeMaid Honey for $115, or the 18.9L bucket of Bernard Maple Syrup for $219 to fall back on!

Mega-Sized Mangoes

Just half of one of these oversized mangoes is the size of your average fruit. For around 10 per box, these tropical fruits are a steal.

Price: $1,001 for a 36-kilogram parmigiano wheel.

There are lots of cheese options in the walk-in refrigerated "milk product" section at the back to the store. Bring a sweater if you want to explore for more than a few minutes, because there's a lot to see and it's cold! For pasta fiends on a budget, there is a 1/8 of the wheel option on sale for $130.

Sauce Buckets
