Saw it at my local Costco.  $10.99 for 20 pounds!

It's new.  Normally they only have Minnesota Girl and Harvest Bread Flour.

That flour has been available here in CA on and off at Costco for a long time.

Also, fyi, the Whole Foods 365 AP flour is the same flour with a WF label.  Check out this thread, too.

Mitch,

Thanks for mentioning that Whole Foods 365 brand flour is also Central Mills.  Central Mills is affiliated with Keith Giusto Bakery Supply (KGBS).

I found this snippet regarding other Whole Foods flours that are the same as Central Mills:

"It has been mentioned that CM mills the AP flour and whole wheat flour that Whole Foods sells under their 365 label.  Nicky confirmed that Whole Foods' organic all-purpose flour is their Organic Beehive Unbleached Malted All Purpose flour, and it is available in all Whole Foods Markets.  Nicky said he thinks this flour is the best they produce for making baguettes.  Whole Foods organic whole wheat is also from KGBS.  And Whole Foods' conventional (inorganic?) all-purpose flour is another KGBS product, Gilt Edge All Purpose."

It seems the west coast Costco's have carried their flour since at least 2011.  I'm happy that they are now supplying this flour in our area as well.
