Costco, the revered American big-box discount retailer, has launched an online store in China, and shoppers have gone nuts, literally: only three days into the launch of its online store, they had already sold three tons of Kirkland nuts and nearly 1.5 tons of dried cranberries.

It's already quite the launch for Costco, which is currently offering only a smattering of the goods they offer for sale in the US. If you don’t find your faves, stay tuned as they are adding more products over time (though some are selling out almost instantaneously).

Alas, the site is in Chinese only, so those who don't read zhongwen need to do a little deft navigating (try one of these guides) or call upon a Chinese-speaking friend to help you check out.

Kirkland’s nuts appear to be one of the hottest items on the site: Kirkland's roasted almonds were previously only available in China for approximately USD 40, whereas Costco’s China store now sells the the same container of almonds for RMB 149, or USD 25.
