Costco Finds Part 3!

Happy Tuesday, friends!

I don’t know about you, but our weekend  and Monday went by in a blur.  Between baseball and volleyball, I looked up and it was already Monday morning, and then last night, we took the kids to the State Fair of Texas, so I’m all sorts of not together this morning.  The good news is that the weather finally got it together, and it feels like fall now here in North Texas!  #amen

Now, a little over a year ago, I posted all of my Costco finds, and it really was one of my favorite posts.  (I even did a follow up two months later and shared a second batch of things I bought just from your comments.)  Between both posts, I shared what I found and then you guys chimed in and reallllllly shared what I should be buying at Costco…and my mind was BLOWN!  I go to Costco about once a month and stock up on mostly things that go in the freezer or pantry.  Every single time I go, I pull up both blog posts and make my list via your comments.  Buuuuut…that was a year ago.  I’ve had a few people recently ask me what I’ve been buying lately and honestly, I’m kind of in a Costco rut.  Now, I love going when it closer to the holidays because their selection of gifts to give for the whole family is amazing (I bought so much last year when I went for Christmas!) along with all of their seasonal popcorn/candy/cookies/decorations/etc, but right now, I’m kind of stuck buying the same things.  There have been a few new items we’ve discovered, tried and loved this year, but for the most part, I’d love some fresh suggestions.  Here are some of our new-ish favorite things…

About 9 months or so ago, my friend Nikki gave Kensington one of these rice rollers, and she’s been hooked ever since.  They don’t look like much, but my girl goes through them like crazy.  I’ve tried them and to me, they taste a little like that cereal Honey Smacks.  You know what I’m talking about?  They’re a little sweet and one of her very favorite snacks for school.

You know how much I love to drink La Croix!  This multi pack is one of our staples.

We’ve always loved Pirate’s Booty, but now that Smith has braces, we especially like it (since he can’t eat most chips with his school lunch).  These individual bags are perfect!

My kiddos take these to school all the time for their snack.

These are surprisingly delicious!!!

Okay, I showed you these one time in a separate blog post…

…these little Parmesan cheese crisps are probably my family’s very favorite Costco purchase.  They are little bites of HEAVEN!  We love them so much that we get both the big bag and…

…the smaller lunch box sized bags.  This variety pack comes with both parm and cheddar, and I personally probably eat them even more than my kids.  They are SO DELISH!

Okay, that’s all I have.  What am I missing???  Someone please tell me!  I would love some new items to add to my list for my next visit.  Please comment and share!! xo

    Those parmesan cheese crisps look so good! I think I may need a few packets myself! 🙂

    My new Costco find this week was my all time favourite roasted Baru Nuts. I used to buy them online as I could never find them in store well Costco has come to the rescue. If you love peanuts and cashews, beeline for Baru Nuts! Hailing from the Brazilian savanna, the Baru nut has less calories and more fiber and protein than almonds, walnuts and Brazil nuts. These nutritious nuts taste like a cashew-peanut hybrid and are downright delicious. Enjoy Barus straight out of the bag as a filling snack, tossed over salad or blended into smoothies for a generous source of plant-based protein. Have I sold you yet??? RUN DONT WALK!!

  • Sheaffer Sims October 8, 2019 at 5:23 am

    Okay! I have two new things for you to get…and I’ve got pictures on Friday’s post. One is the fresh (pre made) street taco meals. SO GOOD! The other is avocado crema sauce. YUM! I’ll actually text you the pics now. 🙂

    • Katie Murphy October 8, 2019 at 10:43 am

      Yes!!!! These are life changing the avocado crema is amazing!!!

    • Jessica October 8, 2019 at 10:54 am

      I second both of these! Delish!

    • Amy October 8, 2019 at 1:04 pm

      Yes!!!! I bought them last week too! So good! I actually bought that cilantro lime crema sauce (they sell it separately too!) on my next trip, so good!!!

    • Jess winne October 8, 2019 at 2:54 pm

      Yes yes yes!!! My neighbor just bought a membership to Costco after I brought her those street tacos!!!! 🌮

    • Jaye October 8, 2019 at 7:36 pm

      Yes! YES! Delicious.

    • Nicole October 10, 2019 at 1:00 pm

      I second both of these!!

  • Laura October 8, 2019 at 5:47 am

    Do you follow costcodeals on Instagram? They always post such fun things that give me ideas for my next shopping trip. 🙂 We love their organic hummus, almond butter, stoneyfield yogurt tubes, organic berries, and frozen salmon for the grill. We also love their giant boxes of Larabars and fig bars for school lunches.

    • Danielle October 8, 2019 at 9:19 am

      Yes! Costcodeals always shows me what to buy, which is both good and bad, haha!

  • Laura October 8, 2019 at 5:58 am

    My friends love their seaweed snacks, and our Costco sells spindrift drinks, which are like lacroix, but have a little more flavor I think. And the box of different flavors of fig bars (similar to a nutri grain bar but better!) does not last long in our house!

    • Ranisa Brletich October 8, 2019 at 8:35 am

      Italian volcano lemon juice. It’s not available at all locations. Eggs. Andrew should be getting his eggs at Costco. Haha. Almond milk. Coconut oil. Some of the NC Beauty products. Baking basic ingredients. Pastas. Cheeses.

  • Kristin October 8, 2019 at 6:03 am

    I follow @costco_doesitagain for all the latest items people are finding in their stores!

  • Suzie October 8, 2019 at 6:25 am

    We love their sugar snap peas and lunchbox peppers for lunches. They have beets in the cooler section (secretly added them to smoothies when my kids were little) and now we roast them! Tillamook cheddar cheese block (to shred or slice!) Jalepeno artichoke dip. The seasoned skirt steak is one of our favorites! (Charcoal grilled and it can be used later for salads and fajitas too)

  • Heather October 8, 2019 at 6:33 am

    Lunches for my kids: Oreos, cashews in the big tub, shelled pistachios, fruit by the foot.
    Two-pack gallons of milk because teenagers…giant box of cinnamon toast crunch. Two pack bread (we freeze it)
    Meat department: rib eye, flank, pork, chicken, flap steak, Chinese chicken salad packs
    Kirkland brand of La Croix
    Gas!!! Batteries!!!
    Medicine: ibuprofen, aller-tec, Vital Proteins, nose spray
    Snacks: parmesan crisps, muffins, artichoke jalapeno dip
    Books, clothes, dog bones, paper products.
    We go once a week and have it down to a science!

  • Katie L. October 8, 2019 at 6:35 am

    I’m not sure if this is a Regional thing – but we love the Hannah Tzatziki sauce and also the Mrs. Sukhi’s Chicken Tikka Masala for quick meals at night. I’m definitely going to try out the rice rollers!

    • Laura October 8, 2019 at 9:02 am

      Pumpkin flaxseed granola to mix with berries and yogurt for breakfast! It’s the yummiest granola! I like stocking up on fruits at Costco.. blueberries, raspberries, pears, avocados, bananas etc. Also love their seaweed packs for snacking or for meals with rice. We don’t get muffins often but when we do, we freeze half to thaw and eat later. Makes a super easy on the go breakfast! We LOVE Costco ribs (surprisingly tender!) next to the rotisserie chicken so we grab those to have with roasted veggies or salad for dinner. Yum! Love Costco!

  • Beth October 8, 2019 at 6:40 am

    Have you tried the street taco kits, the shrimp and the seasonal shaped ravioli?

    • Chelsey Boren October 8, 2019 at 8:06 am

      The street tacos are LIFE! we love them!

  • Bonnie October 8, 2019 at 6:42 am

    Cashew clusters, homemade granola (it’s seasonal and only available in January), chicken skewers, their in house baby wipes are the best, block cheese! You can’t go wrong with anything!!!!

  • Kristen October 8, 2019 at 6:43 am

    Brand MADE GOOD Granola Minis. They’re so good. They have chocolate chip and mixed berry and come in individual packs. Great quick snack!

    • Megan October 8, 2019 at 10:11 am

      These are SO good!!

    • Rachel October 8, 2019 at 6:07 pm

      Totally agree with this! And very allergy friendly. Super easy to throw in the diaper bag or a lunch box

  • Justyna October 8, 2019 at 6:45 am

    You need to try the thin cheese wraps (aka cheese that looks like tortilla) and the shiitake chips!!!

  • Elspeth October 8, 2019 at 6:47 am

    I love all the unique snacks. Plus, sometimes I get stuck in a rut with eating the same things. I would love to see what people suggest too. Happy shopping!

  • D'Andra Landry October 8, 2019 at 6:53 am

    Costco has Mexican street corn dip that’s AMAZING. Also cilantro lime shrimp that will change your world.

    • Amy T October 8, 2019 at 9:32 am

      What section is the cilantro lime rice in? Refrig/Frozen or prepackaged meals by the bakery/meat counter?

  • Erin Springer October 8, 2019 at 7:00 am

    The sous vide egg bites!! Also we love the street taco kits (sold by the rotisserie chicken)!!! Kirkland pulled pork (pre-cooked), string cheese, cheese blocks, cauliflower rice, cauliflower pizza, yogurt tubes for lunches, gym, Kirkland protein bars (just like Quest bars 😊), just to name a few!!!! But def try the egg bites!!!!!!!!!

    • Ally October 8, 2019 at 9:13 pm

      Yes!!! The egg bites!!!! They’re amazing on the go and we get them every week when we go
      To Costco!

  • Diane VandenPlas October 8, 2019 at 7:02 am

    Spindrift water are our new favorite! This time of year I also start stocking up on nuts for holiday baking – pecans, walnuts, pinenuts, almonds, mixed nuts…ginormous fresh nuts with no salt or lightly salted and fabulous prices!

  • Grace October 8, 2019 at 7:03 am

    I love Costco! My kids love the lemon bites from the bakery section, Lakanto Monkfruit (It tastes like sugar but is made from the Monkfruit), Kirkland pork BBQ is so quick to heat up, and the large green bag of Romano cheese is so good!!

  • Brittany W October 8, 2019 at 7:04 am

    Toilet paper, paper towel, my family also buys their jumbo packs of hamburger meat and can split it into about 4 or 5 portions and freeze them. Big bag of veggie straws, wrapping paper at xmas time. Big costco family over here!

  • Hilary October 8, 2019 at 7:19 am

    Brazi bites!

  • Amanda October 8, 2019 at 7:19 am

    The Street Tacos are AMAZING!!!

  • Katie October 8, 2019 at 7:38 am

    Inno Foods coconut clusters (taste like the girlscout cookie), all meats (esp bacon and their Canadian bacon), merlot belivitano cheese, dried mangos, Epsom salts, Kirkland wine/champagne, kerrygold butter, eggs, Kirkland maple syrup, Kirkland version of vitamin water

  • Sam October 8, 2019 at 7:40 am

    You should try the ground flax seed at Costco it’s great to add it smoothies. And the giant rub of pretzel rods it’s a great deal!

  • Amy October 8, 2019 at 7:53 am

    I’m so happy to see they have those Protein Bars! We love those at our house! Adding them to my Costco list now!

  • Amber October 8, 2019 at 7:53 am

    I second the Avacado Crema sauce- AMAZING. Our favorite is the chocolate Love Crunch granola. It’s pretty low in sugar for granola, and delicious! I like to mix it with yogurt, but my kids eat it like cereal with almond milk. Our favorite!

  • Natalie Alvarado October 8, 2019 at 7:56 am

    We love the packages of apple slices! You get several bags and they are great to grab on the go or for kids lunches.
    Toilet paper and paper towels and bottled water
    Organic butter- it’s a better price than the grocery store.
    Organic frozen corn and broccoli.
    We also buy lots of snacks. Fruit snacks, granola bars, popcorn. Applesauce packages, yogurts, fruit cups,
    Shredded cheese, mini pizzas for kids, cauliflower veggie pizza is really good.
    Their throws are so soft. We buy at least one new one every year.

    • Morgan October 8, 2019 at 12:26 pm

      Yes! I buy a throw every year as well – they’re so awesome!

  • Erika Slaughter October 8, 2019 at 7:58 am

    Can I ask a question about the street taco kits?? If you’re picky about meat, will you still love them?

    • Mix and Match Mama October 8, 2019 at 9:32 am

      Oh my gosh, I read the comment and thought to myself “Erika needs to read the answer when someone posts” and then saw you asked the question! hahahaha! I know you too well!

    • Jessica October 8, 2019 at 11:22 am

      YES!!!

    • Aileen October 8, 2019 at 12:55 pm

      I’m picky about meat and I like them! The kind we have here in Nashville (not sure if they are different in TX) comes with chicken that is cut up and seems grilled or “well done” to me if that makes sense. So you just heat it up and it’s good to go!

    • Emily October 9, 2019 at 12:31 am

      Can I chime in? I’ve gotta go with no. We’ve tried them twice & I’ve been grossed out by the meat both times. I’m picky about meat, especially chicken, and I couldn’t do it. Maybe just bad luck but I’m not super excited to try them again… 😬

    • Michele B October 9, 2019 at 8:13 am

      I’m going to go with no! Granted it wasn’t AS bad as other pre-made meals, but we threw a majority of the meat out. I have yet to find a pre-made meal that had meat that our family would like that doesn’t gross you out. Just buy the crema sauce separately and make your own!

    • Jaye October 9, 2019 at 1:26 pm

      I’m super picky about meat, so I was very hesitant! I love them!

    • Jaye October 9, 2019 at 1:29 pm

      I heat the meat up in a cast iron skillet with a little olive oil. We’ve never had anything I’d consider “questionable “

    • Ashlee October 9, 2019 at 3:28 pm

      I’m picky about meat…I thought it was okay. But was very selective on the chicken I ate When picking it out of the container! 😬
      Overall, it was okay. But I havent Bought it again!

    • Keri October 24, 2019 at 6:10 am

      I’m picky and I did not like them. I got a weird bite and was done. I returned it to Costco! It was too pricey to just throw away.

  • Amanda October 8, 2019 at 8:02 am

    Try the Gold Island Korean pork jerky- it will BLOW YOUR MIND. I am not a jerky eater at all, but this stuff is incredible. Sweet, chewy and delicious. I actually gave it to all the guys in my family for Christmas one year and they were immediately obsessed.

  • Erica Werner October 8, 2019 at 8:06 am

    This is totally off topic. I just finished reading the best book. You must read Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

    • Mix and Match Mama October 8, 2019 at 9:31 am

      Okay, I read that one and didn’t love it. I feel like most people do though!!

      • Andrea Hooper October 8, 2019 at 10:00 am

        Have you read a mother’s confession by Kelly Rimmer? Finished it the other day and can’t stop thinking about it. Soooo good!

  • Erin October 8, 2019 at 8:07 am

    Nature Valley Biscuits with Almond Butter!

  • Lindsay DeYoung October 8, 2019 at 8:12 am

    My favorite thing to do with those Parmesan Whisps is to grind them up in the food processor (with a little coconut flour) and coat chicken with it… then pan fry it 🙂 Some of the best chicken you’ve ever had!

    • Jess Ackermann October 9, 2019 at 7:19 pm

      That sounds amazing! So creative!

  • Bridgett October 8, 2019 at 8:16 am

    Jalapeño artichoke dip!!!!! It’s to die for.

    • Morgan October 8, 2019 at 3:13 pm

      Is this the La Terra Fina brand? I just tried the Parmesan spinach artichoke dip and OMG! SOO good! I use the little naan dippers to go with it, from Costco as well!

  • Beth Valenta October 8, 2019 at 8:18 am

    Whisps are my school go to! You must try the barbecue kind. There are also these easy egg things with sausage that you just heat up called Three Bridges country style sausage egg bites. Life changing for on the go!

  • Stephanie Long October 8, 2019 at 8:31 am

    We love the street taco kit and the freshly prepared family size chicken pot pie, which is seasonal only and NOT frozen. Both are in the fresh prepared food section.
    Shelled pistachios
    BabyBel cheeses
    Nutella & Go snack packs

  • Beth October 8, 2019 at 8:31 am

    I get my chicken breasts from there, I love it because they come pre-packaged in packs of two, with 6 packs. I also, love there pretzels bites are delicious, you can find them in the bread isle (but they don’t always carry them). I also like buying my tomato sauce and diced tomatoes there, this way I always have them on hand. Cauliflower rice is also a staple, it comes in a big bag with a bunch of smaller bags perfect for a meal. And then of course all of the kids snack stuff I get there, fruit by the foot/fruit roll ups, Rice Krispies treats, fruit snacks, things like that. I also, like getting a rotisserie chicken when I go, I can get two different meals out of it and the meat is so good, I usually make one dish and then freeze the rest for later!

    • Jaye October 9, 2019 at 1:31 pm

      I heat the meat up in a cast iron skillet with a little olive oil. We’ve never had anything I’d consider “questionable “

  • Molly October 8, 2019 at 8:40 am

    I agree, the street taco meals are SO good! My husband and I were wondering if you can freeze those pre made meals? I would love to be able to pull a pre made meal out of the freezer from time to time, but I’m the same and only get to Costco once a month. Curious if anyone has had any luck with freezing the meals! Thanks for all the suggestions, it’s so helpful to have new ideas!

  • emily October 8, 2019 at 8:41 am

    if you can find them, whisps also make a pepperjack flavor that are better than the other two (which are already SO good)!

  • Karen October 8, 2019 at 8:56 am

    Are your kids still allowed to bring peanut butter to school? I assumed most schools had done away with that.

    • Mix and Match Mama October 8, 2019 at 9:30 am

      My big kids can as long as no one in their class has an allergy. Madeley’s school is peanut free.

  • Laur October 8, 2019 at 9:04 am

    Follow @costco_doesitagain on Instagram!! They post ALL the time, and I’ll just watch it’s story in awe of all the stuff that’s waiting for me at Costco. And they’re posting tons of fall related treats and Christmas presents.

  • Jill October 8, 2019 at 9:29 am

    Agree with Schaeffer!!!😊 Yum…both so good!

  • Martha October 8, 2019 at 9:36 am

    I am a total sheet snob and am in LOVE with the Kirkland Brand 650-count cotton sateen sheets. They are CRAZY GOOD…better than my most favorite Ralph Lauren set that I’ve been loyal to for years. Can’t beat a king size set for $79. The pockets are very deep and have extra elastic so no more of that popping off the bed in the middle of the night business. I’m hooked for life.

  • Brenda October 8, 2019 at 9:36 am

    Our favorites are Amylu Apple& Gouda Chicken sausages (found in the meat section), Kirkland protein bars, Costco chocolate cake (the big I think American chocolate cake), Greenridge beef sticks (my kids love these for snacks and we put them in their lunch)

  • Jenn Johnson October 8, 2019 at 9:42 am

    If K likes the Rice Rollers so much then you have got to try the coconut rolls! They are SOOO good! All 3 of my kids love them and not one of them would dare eat anything else coconut. TRY THEM! They are in a bag similar in coloring and shape to the parm. cheese Whisps you have posted above but the bag is just green and white. No orange. They should be in the same section as the Rice Rollers but they are not always in stock so get a few bags if you see them. We also love the rasp. and blueberry fig bars, the chicken flautas (in the refrigerated section, not frozen) and the Late July healthy(ish) tortilla chips! Happy shopping!

    Off topic but, could you please post a link to where you got that gorgeous monsterous Christmas tree of yours? My husband is fed up with our 15 year old tree. We tried a real one last year and that was for the birds! Yours is gorgeous and I would love to see if we can get one similar! Thank you Shay!

  • Samantha October 8, 2019 at 9:45 am

    OMG I’ve been wanting to try those Whisps. Wasn’t sure if they’re actually any good but now I’m definitely going to have to buy some!

  • Corbie October 8, 2019 at 10:00 am

    I just found egg thins in my store! They are the thinnest tortillas made with egg and cauliflower! They are DELISH!! They have no carbs, no fat, and one gram of protein each. I use them like tortillas. I had four last night for dinner, lol and made a couple of tacos and then rolled a couple up with cheese :-). I use Instacart- I pay the annual delivery fee and get free delivery from all of our local grocery stores including Costco! I go on-line and put in my order and its delivered within 2 hours! Do you have that there?? It is amazing! Especially when I want things on the weekends and I do not want to deal with Costco. Ours is a zoo. Love this post!

    • Lori C October 10, 2019 at 11:22 am

      Corbie, when you pay the annual Instacart delivery fee, are you still paying more per item? I took the time once to add everything from my recent in store purchase to instacart and the total was $50 more. I cannot remember how much my total purchase amount was, but nothing too crazy. I think it was maybe $200, or so. So a 25% markup seemed crazy to me.

  • Megan October 8, 2019 at 10:13 am

    Veggie bites, Greek yogurt spinach dip, pure protein bars, their fruit is almost always great

  • Barbara Parnell October 8, 2019 at 10:18 am

    So many things. Love their asparagus,butter lettuce(always fresh and tender),mini Naan dippers(great with Trader Joe’s roasted garlic hummus), bacon, coconut clusters, nuts, Milano cookies, loads of Fall/Halloween/Christmas things right now, great book selection..so many activity books for kids and informative books for them as well,Kodiak protein powder/waffles,always enjoy the plant/flower selection,love the area rugs, sheets and fleece blankets for the kids. One word of caution(hate to burst anyone’s bubble), if you are health conscious ,read the ingredients on the taco kit and other pre-made meals..lots lots of things in there.

  • Heather Saloom October 8, 2019 at 10:20 am

    Aussie Bites. you won’t be dissapointed!

    https://www.costco.com/Universal-Bakery-Organic-Aussie-Bites%2C-32-count.product.100371264.html

  • Jamie S. October 8, 2019 at 10:32 am

    My #1 favorite thing to buy at Costco is the big jar of basil pesto!! Sooo yummy and such a staple in our house (my kids call it ‘monster sauce’ because of the color). I love to add a spoonful of pesto to soups, lasagna, meatloaf, chicken dishes, pasta dishes, use as a spread for sandwiches/wraps, salmon, and more just for a little boost of flavor.

  • Constance October 8, 2019 at 11:12 am

    Sanders chocolate salted caramels!!! OMWord!!! I get a membership just to get those…They come in a large jar that you can divide and give as teacher gifts, Christmas gifts, hostess gifts….. We put them in my daughter’s hotel welcome bags for her wedding!!!!

  • Kristen M Burns October 8, 2019 at 11:57 am

    A few things I picked up on my last visit… Moon Cheese , freeze dried cheese!! They are crunchy like chips but 100% cheese. Also, I’m a huge fan of La Croix but find Waterloo to be better, they don’t have the throat burning bubbles like La Croix, they are more effervescent and the flavor is much better.

  • Beth Miller October 8, 2019 at 12:04 pm

    Costco’s Kirkland brand sparkling water is WAY better than LaCroix! It’s much cheaper too!

  • Amanda October 8, 2019 at 12:28 pm

    One of our staples is madegood granola bars. So delish and made with veggies (you can’t taste them). I probably have one every single day. We also buy their mini chocolate chip cookies and vanilla crispy squares as well.
    Love their mixed havarti multi pack. 3 different types of havarti cheese (chipotle, jalapeño and herb and garlic, their caulipower pizza, individual guacamole packets,
    dried mangos, single serve oatmeal, hemp hearts and probably a bunch more I’m forgetting

  • Aileen October 8, 2019 at 1:04 pm

    So this sounds kind of crazy but I love their Kirkland Brand hydrating shampoo and conditioner! It’s in the giant purple bottles and it’s rumored to be made by Pureology! I also love their Kirkland breakfast blend k cups, which are made by Green Mountain. It’s kind of a fun game to see what name brands actually make certain Kirkland branded products.

    • Lori C October 10, 2019 at 11:25 am

      Staples in our home, too!

  • Myra Gittings October 8, 2019 at 1:26 pm

    Pumpkin hummus! Available here in Huntington Beach, CA..hoping you can find it there.

    • Mix and Match Mama October 8, 2019 at 2:34 pm

      Is it savory or sweet? I’m so intrigued!!!

      • Myra Gittings October 8, 2019 at 2:54 pm

        Sweet! Tastes just like pumpkin. My Costco was sampling it and I was sold instantly.

      • Jen October 8, 2019 at 8:36 pm

        I was surprised by the pumpkin hummus. Definitely sweet but more subtle, not over the top. Tasted like pumpkin pie filling. It was great with cinnamon Graham crackers from Trader Joe’s!

        • Jackie October 9, 2019 at 6:49 am

          The pumpkin pie hummus is amazing!! I brought it to work and every person that tasted it was like OMG. Also great with the Biscoff cookies they sell at Costco. Costco’s pumpkin pie is also the best store bought one out there in my opinion. Tastes homemade.

          • Lori C October 10, 2019 at 11:26 am

            Their pumpkin pies are AMAZING!

  • lori reggio October 8, 2019 at 1:39 pm

    costco is so great….kirkland products….all paper products and garbage bags,, washing machine pods and dishwasher pods, organic hummus and guacamole cups, pistachios, organic eggs, organic milk (best price anywhere) organic apples, organic chop meat and chicken and bacon. bed sheets and towels are lovely. vitamins and supplements excellent savings on everything!!

  • Maria October 8, 2019 at 2:05 pm

    Do you shop at Sam’s club? Can you do a Sam’s club haul of your favorite items?

    • Mix and Match Mama October 8, 2019 at 2:34 pm

      I used to when I had babies, but I don’t have a membership right now.

    My 7 year old grandson got us started on Popcorners (individual snack bags — kettle corn, white cheddar and sea salt). I had to buy 3 boxes of 28 last week; one for him and 2 for my house.

    My kids love the bags of smart pop from Costco! Also this Summer we started getting there Mexican style street corn. It’s freakin amazing! I am a corn person and I love it! You should check it out. We use it as a side to grilled steaks, on top of tacos, in recipes, you name it we probably use it:)

  • Tami October 8, 2019 at 4:22 pm

    Cranberry white cheddar cheese, jalapeño and artichoke dip, Spindrift, their new spicy mango Thai salad kit, Kirkland’s brand fruit-veggie applesauce pouches for my kiddos and white chocolate and peppermint stick covered pretzels!

    • Mix and Match Mama October 9, 2019 at 4:57 am

      Well, that dip sounds insane!

      • Tami October 10, 2019 at 3:41 pm

        Super delish!!! Also have used it and put into chicken breasts and baked! YUM! 🙂

  • Becca October 8, 2019 at 4:41 pm

    We are obsessed with the coconut rolls and the chocolate covered mangos right now soooo yummy!

  • Laura October 8, 2019 at 5:10 pm

    I usually buy the Kirkland paper towels
    But lately I am thunking they leave a film on things. Is anyone else having this problem?

  • Rachel October 8, 2019 at 6:09 pm

    You NEED White Linen Marinara Sauce. I’ve gotten all of my family, and my sisters and their families hooked on it. SO GOOD. and don’t forget the Carnitas by Del Real foods. It has to be by this brand, not the Costco one!

    • Tracie October 9, 2019 at 8:10 am

      Love this spaghetti sauce, and I love it is a big jar for my family of 5!!!

  • Mary Tyson Bradshaw October 8, 2019 at 7:32 pm

    I discovered their frozen organic chicken sausage (no nitrates/nitrites, non-GMO, no sugar) and love to eat 3 in the morning with a fried egg and some peppers and onions, all cooked in the same pan. We also eat their spring rolls, the cauliflower pizza (which I think you’ve already tried), and a lot of their produce. And yes, I buy the package of 5 dozen eggs from Costco! 😂 I also like the Siete brand of tortilla chips (made with cassava flour), which is a nice gluten-free option. But my current FAVORITE (and it is seasonal), is Organic Spaghetti Squash, which comes in a box and is in the refrigerated section. You microwave it for 3 minutes, and then use a fork to shred it out into a bowl. It is absolutely amazing!

  • Laurie October 8, 2019 at 7:58 pm

    Salad toppers- they come in a green bag that has dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, etc. individual organic chocolate milk boxes, premade pot roast that comes in a container in the deli area- we sampled it and were hooked!! All my students bring rice rolls for snacks. Creators popcorn. Play-doh minis at Halloween time

  • Jennifer Goodwin October 8, 2019 at 8:18 pm

    We always buy our dog food there, as well as toilet paper, toilet wipes, cleaning products, detergent for laundry and the dishwasher (Kirkland has a dishwasher pod that we use), dryer sheets (Kirkland), paper products, Crystal Lite lemonade packets, Nutella, fruit, veggies, bread, variety grab bags of chips, meat, Keurig cups (again the Kirkland brand is my fav), birthday cakes, and batteries. I always look through the cereals and dips while I’m there. They have really good pimento cheese that I like to eat with crackers. Sometimes I treat Costco as my grocery store for the week. I love that the meat comes in big quantities, with four sons, it goes a long way. Their deli pizza is my favorite…it reminds me a little of NYC style.

  • Valerie Cannell October 8, 2019 at 9:45 pm

    Amylu Apple& Gouda Chicken sausages, Moon Cheese, cheese sticks, Sanders Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels (good gift), applesauce pouches, frozen stir fry veggies, kirkland maple syrup, taco seasoning mix, Hawaiian rolls (so cheap!), kirkland protein bars, whisps, Kirkland organic tortilla chips, and when they finally bring it back, Mateo’s Gourmet Salsa (we bought 36-ish jars when they were discontinued last time!),

  • Amy October 8, 2019 at 11:17 pm

    My number 1 is the mediterranean chicken skewers. Already cooked in refrigerated section. I put in salads, my kids dip in bbq sauce, just perfectly cooked chicken. Also Street taco kits, orange chicken (frozen), frozen açaí bowls (will thaw in school lunches. Get the bowls, NOT the little packets), Brekki overnight oats, Pho noodle bowls (just add hot water), Edamame, Gogurts, egg bites, Kodiak frozen vanilla waffles. Highly suggest following the Costco Does It Again insta page for good ideas (I’m not affiliated with them, just fun to follow).

  • Kate October 9, 2019 at 5:49 am

    We do clean eating as much as possible and these are my faves…
    —Simple Mills Almond Flour GF crackers…so good plus they’re on sale right now.
    —Teton Grass Fed Sausages…delish!!
    —Ranch 4505 Chicarones…grass fed pork rinds. Great when you need a crunchy snack.
    —And those wine popsicles are legit. So next summer when is unbearably hot search them out.

  • Katie October 9, 2019 at 6:32 am

    My kids favorite snack is Pocky. I can’t believe no one else mentioned them. They are chocolate cream covered biscuit sticks. My daughter trades them like a prisoner with cigarettes in the cafeteria because all her friends love them too.
    I love the Kirklands sheets. We have them on every bed and wash every week. They hold up especially well for the price.
    Can’t wait to try the street tacos now and the avocado crema everyone else mentioned.

  • Heather October 9, 2019 at 6:38 am

    Our staples have been their k-cups, eggs, bread, wine, packs of chicken (that I freeze) and dog food. We will usually also buy their rotisserie chicken and cooked shrimp with cocktail sauce. But we’ve recently discovered their bedsheets, which I really doubted given a king set was under $20, but we loved them so much, we went back for another pair. Last trip we also found a huge box of Nature’s Bakery fig bars and they’re amazing. During the fall, I love to buy their gigantic mums for like $10! And then for the holidays, I stock up on my baking essentials.

  • Melissa October 9, 2019 at 7:11 am

    The bark thins in dark chocolate with sea salt pumpkin seeds!!!

    • Lori C October 10, 2019 at 11:35 am

      These are so good!

  • Carli Patton October 9, 2019 at 8:30 am

    hard boiled egg snack packs–that and a sliced apple get me through my afternoon munchies. i’ve never been a fan of store bought hard eggs until these!

  • Michele B October 9, 2019 at 8:32 am

    I buy the Stonefire mini naan to make individual sized pizzas and the kids get to add all their own toppings. (I have actually used leftover “Andrea’s pulled pork” to make a BBQ pizza for myself).
    The oven roasted potatoes (in the refrigerated section by the meat) are so good with no bad additives. You just pop the trays in the oven and done! Frozen berries for smoothies, Brookside chocolate covered açaí berries, probiotic chewies, Emergen-C packets, batteries, refillable printer ink

  • Sandra Reynolds October 9, 2019 at 8:37 am

    Costco Canada carries a lot of different food products than the US, but I think we have a lot of the same great Kirkland Products. For Christmas, I love their wrapping paper and I always get a few packs of tissue paper – the variety of colours (blues, purple, iridescent …) is great for year round gift wrapping. Also, Sanders Salted Caramel Chocolates are amazing. Makes a great gift for hostess, teacher, etc. I also pick up iTunes Cards (4x$25 for $89) as they are perfect for my teen nieces & nephews.

  • Amanda October 9, 2019 at 8:39 am

    I love to get a $5 rotisserie chicken and eat on it all week for my lunch. We love the kirkland broccoli cheese soup. The kids love the chocolate hazelnut French crepes that are individually wrapped but they only come out randomly a few times a year, they also love the seaweed packs and the big jar of mango slices.

  • Nancy A October 9, 2019 at 9:56 am

    My very favorite thing is the organic uncooked tortillas in the refrigerated section. You cook them on a flat pan or griddle in less than a minute and they are the best tortillas ever…hot and fresh with butter, yum! We also used them to wrap up hot dogs or make chimichangas. Other faves are Popcornopolis popcorn in the big red bag, wine, the organic chicken flautas, and the Z bars for the kiddos. Apparently there is a wine advent calendar…I will be searching for that unicorn!

  • Mary Wilmot October 9, 2019 at 1:10 pm

    I love those street tacos everyone keeps mentioning. Great meal for a new mom! I actually just got back from Costco after running in for diapers. We got a 4 pack or frozen Kirkland pizzas for $8 and a case of 35 Kirkland sparkling waters (right next to the lacroix!) for $8!

  • Ashlee October 9, 2019 at 3:33 pm

    Pimento cheese dip is to die for!!! If you set it out at a party, it gets eaten very quickly! It’s addicting!

  • Kim C October 10, 2019 at 8:57 am

    I love Costco. We go there for:
    The big boxes of Quaker granola bars
    Sanders dark chocolate sea salt caramels (a few for me then the rest go to my parents because I WILL eat the whole container myself)
    Kirkland cases of bottled water
    variety pack of candy bars for my husband’s lunches
    box of individual bags of sun chips
    chocolate covered peanuts, almonds, and raisins
    cinnamon sugar bread from the bakery (container of 3 loaves)
    apple cinnamon muffins (delicious but downside is they are the size of a dessert plate and you HAVE TO buy 12 of them — they will make you leave the checkout lane to go get another container of them)
    the fruit selection is usually fantastic
    playdoh
    25# bags of sugar (for canning) and flour (baking)
    3 or 4# bags of nestle chocolate chips
    at Christmas, the white chocolate covered pretzel thins with peppermint crumbles
    their wrapping paper and bows!

  • AprilK October 11, 2019 at 2:51 pm

    I made a list based on these comments and now $400 later I have a lot of new things to try out! LOL

  • Jenna October 11, 2019 at 9:34 pm

    I am a huge riced cauliflower and cucumber fan so the three pack of English cucumbers and frozen riced cauliflower packs are my favvvv! Also love the Texas Caviar they have (seasonal??) Otherwise love the Kirkland Greek yogurt, unsalted roasted nut mix, almond butter and

  • Laci October 15, 2019 at 1:23 pm

    I love Kirkland paper towels and the orange box of Kirkland garbage bags! I am so spoiled to those garbage bags I will drive out of my way if we are running low. I love the granola bars, the Applewood smoked bacon, their apples are delicious and of course we buy all dish soap etc from Costco!

  • Lauren October 16, 2019 at 9:04 pm

    I love their ravioli! The sausage one is awesome and we just picked up a butternut squash and carmelized onion one to try that I’m so excited to try! Also the Heavenly Hunks chocolate oatmeal cookies are my guilty pleasure…I tell myself they are healthy because of all the oats 😂
