Are you a Costco Member? My husband and I originally joined several years to save money on diapers, but in the years since we’ve found so many other products we love as well!
We only go to Costco about once a month just to stock up on our favorites, so we’re pretty predictable with our purchases. While we occasionally try something new, these are our favorites (in no particular order) that we get almost every time we go. I’ve included pictures so you can easily spot these items on your next Costco trip!
If you have a favorite I missed, I’d love for you to share it in the comments section at the bottom!
1. Kirkland Organic Peanut Butter ($9.99/2 (28 oz.) containers)
I love this peanut butter. It only has two ingredients, dry roasted organic peanuts and salt, which means there’s no added sugar. I use this for anything from sandwiches and toast to homemade granola bars and energy balls. These two containers last us for quite a while!
2. Frozen Mixed Berries ($9.99/4 lbs.)
We drink a lot of smoothies at our house, so I appreciate that this bag is big – 4 lbs.! It has a mixture of blackberries, raspberries and blueberries. I’ve also used it in quick breads, muffins and pancakes too!
3. Spindrift ($14.99/30 (12 oz) cans)
This is one of my favorite carbonated waters. It’s flavored with real fruit juice, which means it doesn’t have any sort of “fake” taste like I think some other carbonated waters do. While you can buy it in other flavors at local grocery stores, it’s a lot less expensive to buy the variety pack at Costco!
4. MadeGood Granola Minis ($9.99/20 bags)
I often make granola balls myself, but they’re too messy to to take on the go, which is why we love these! Each bag has around 7 small granola balls in it and they aren’t crumbly like my homemade ones are. These are also made in a facility free of many common allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, wheat/gluten, egg, dairy, soy, sesame and fish/shellfish), which means they’re great for kids with allergies or for my own kids (without food allergies) to take to school. My kids like both the fruit and chocolate flavors.
5. Kirkland Organic Applesauce ($8.49/24 pouches)
My kids love applesauce! I love that these only have two ingredients, organic apples and citric acid (for coloring), which means no added sugar. Now that my kids are a bit older (3 and 6) we’re trying to move away from pouches at home, but I can’t let go of the convenience of having a healthy food to be able to take on-the-go with us.
6. Kodiak Cake Mix ($11.79/3 (24 oz) bags)
Weekend pancakes and waffles are a staple for us and we love this brand. It’s easy for the kids to help make too, just requiring water and/or milk and we add cinnamon! It’s far more expensive to buy at the regular grocery store, so we always buy it here.
7. Organic Avocado Ranch Chopped Salad Kit ($4.99/22.6 oz.)
Bagged salad is the perfect dinner side dish and such a great deal too! My husband and I will eat this as a (large) side dish for about two dinners. It has a packet of dressing, dried corn, corn chips, cheese and a smashed avocado packet included. This is in our cart every time we go!
8. Sabra Hummus ($5.99/2lbs)
Our family loves hummus and this, container is the perfect size for us. It’s even larger than the “family size” I can get at our regular grocery store. We use it with pretzels, sliced peppers, carrots and even occasionally as an addition to a cheese quesadilla. I’ve only found it in the roasted pine nut flavor, but surprisingly my kids like the added topping.
9. Just Bare Lightly Breaded Chicken Breast Chunks ($13.99/4 lbs.)
We almost never had frozen chicken nuggets for dinner until we discovered this brand at Costco! Put them in the air fryer and they could *almost* pass for Chick-Fil-A nuggets! My husband, kids and I all love them, which makes them a winner in my book! They also work great as a salad topper (like the avocado ranch salad kit noted above) or in a burrito bowl!
10. Kirkland Signature Organic Maple Syrup ($10.00/1 liter)
We hardly ever bought “real” maple syrup until coming across this brand at Costco. Not only does it taste great, but it’s considerably cheaper than buying maple syrup at our regular grocery store. We obviously use it on pancakes and waffles, but I also use it in a lot of my baking and when I make something like granola bars.
