For $99.99, you can order two ounces of French-imported Winter Black truffles or Périgord Truffles (Tuber melanosporum) from Costco. Item # 394884.

Uniquely the only type of truffle without a tan flesh, these winter marvels have a black or chocolate colored flesh and carry an aroma that is out of this world! These gastronomic treats flourish from January through March when the black truffles have their most intense aroma. These truffles arrive fresh from France having been picked and delivered within a week of leaving the rich soil.

Costco will deliver them via UPS 2nd Day Air. As our friend mulegirl said best: "If anyone ever asks you to explain the difference between Costco and Walmart." Now you have an answer.
