Costco can be a bit random when it comes to stocking sour cream, the Neihu store has been out of stock at times when the Xizhi store has had it. I tend to find that the Xizhi store usually doesn't run out of stuff as often as the other stores. Maybe cause there's less foreigners going all the way out there :D

You mean it has it or it is gone, too?


It has it, and lots of other great stuff. I found the address:

Zhonghe, Yi-An Rd, L.118, 14

And it seems there are other branches:

Zhongli City - Huanzhong E Rd Sec 2, 762
Taoyuan City - Yong-an Rd, 281
I have news. Good news from Notting Hill. The consignment of white gold for Mr Anderson has arrived.

Love these guys. They assume I even know what fresh cream looks like, let alone that I can fix this stuff.

Mayo, sour cream, yes it can be done at home, but you are talking to a lazy bum who prefers to take a nap on the sofa rather than fixing a meal.

Sorry if this has already been said (I"m sure it has but I'm not peering through 9 pages to check) you can buy sour cream at Costco and it's quite cheap too. But of course there's quite a bit of it, though as other have mentioned it does keep a while as it's sour.
Ah, Brazil. ;)

Yes, dear, it's been said. Current problem is that there is not a tub of sour cream to be found in eitehr Costco Yongher nor Neihu.

Icon, I think I've figured out the issue. The other day I was in Taichung and found no sour cream (not even a box -- and the clerks said they were plum out) at Costco, but in a nearby bakery/restaurant, there were no less than five tubs of the stuff.

I bet Costco is ordering it and then prioritizing business purchases. You've gotta get your cafe up and running! Order 10 tubs of the stuff and then (cough) distribute it to us laypeople.

I didn't see any today (Neihu).
Now selling homestyle baked goods (cookies, brownies, baklava, pies, & cakes) made with many organic, fair-trade and/or local pesticide-free ingredients, as well as many of those ingredients themselves, at our shop in Donghu (Neihu).
