I shop at the Costco in Issaquah, WA, where Costco also has its headquarters. So maybe they are trying it out here. I'll do my best to let them know that they should keep it coming!

My Costco doesn't have all of those items. But what they do have is the pizza (which by the way is delicious!), two brands of gluten-free bread (not frozen) and one of those brands they have in two types, pasta, an all purpose flour and various other baking products like coconut flour, flax and chia seed and other such things. They also have a very amazing selection of everyday products that just happen to be gluten free, including a bunch of snack foods like Trio bars and Lara bars. My $55 a year for membership is something I will gladly continue to pay!

Can you give more details about the pizza?  Brand?  Bakery or frozen section?

The brand of the pizza is Sabatasso. It is the first frozen pizza I have ever had in my life that has enough cheese on it to satisfy me, which is saying something because I'm an extra cheese kind of girl. It also gets a beautiful crispy crust with a good texture when cooked according to the directions. I usually add some toppings to it, but it is also fine exactly as is. I've copy pasted an ingredient list from another website here, not sure if it is 100% accurate but from my memory it looks like what I recall. I never get caught without a pack of these in my freezer, they come 2 in a pack for $11.something, which is a great price for such a great pizza.

 

cheese blend (low moisture part skim mozzarella cheese [pasteurized part skim milk, cheese cultures, salt, enzymes], fontina cheese (pasteurized part skim milk, cultures, salt, enzymes), parmesan cheese [cultured pasteurized part skim milk, salt, enzymes], asiago cheese {pasteurized milk, cheese cultures, salt, enzymes}), sauce (crushed tomatoes [water, concentrated crushed tomatoes], tomato puree[water tomato paste], sugar, salt, spices, soybean oil, citric acid, dehydrated onions, garlic, romano cheese flavor [romano cheese(milk, cheese cultures, salt, enzymes),water, disodium phosphate, enzymes], onion powder, spice extractive), whey, tapioca starch, rice flour, rice starch, contains 2% or less of: yeast, vegetable oil (soybean, cottonseed, corn and/or canola oil), vegetable shortening (palm oil, natural flavor, soy lecithin), sugar, salt, xanthan gum, garlic powder. http://www.fooducate.com/app#page=product&id=9E69AF3E-FA17-11E2-A74D-1E047F0525AB

My kids are the ones with Celiac in this house - both DX in 2013.  Anyway, we used to go to Costco all the time to get hot dogs and then eat up all the free samples.  It was a good way to waste a weekend day.  Last month we went and every free sample was gluten-free.  Every. Single. One. !!

 

As we were leaving my oldest said "It's like they knew we were coming and wanted to let us try it all!"  *melt my heart*  They were just thrilled.

 

FWIW, those huge bags of Pirate's Booty are the best price ever.  My kids could polish off a bag in one weekend, if given the opportunity. 

 

Oh, my Costco had a ton of 5# bags of Namaste flour for an amazing price.  When I realized they were being discontinued I bought out the rest of their stock - 16 bags!

And - they did it again! This weekend we discovered a new gem at Costco--- fresh Linguini (RP's Pasta Company Gluten Free Linguini). I have never tasted gluten free pasta as good as this one. And it was easy to make  -- and best yet - it didn't all stick together.

 

I'm going to pass along this thread to Costco - and hopefully some of these products will head your way!

So - I decided to write to Costco - and let them know how appreciated their gluten free products are - and to encourage them to read this post and start carrying more of these products across country. I received back what seems to be a "form letter" :(

As a person with Celiac Disease - I want to let you know how much I appreciate your recent increase in a variety of gluten free products. I shop at the Issaquah store, and every week there seems to be more and more items. I belong to a "celiac forum" which has thousands of members - and recently made a post commending Costco. You may like to see it

This posting has had about 600 views to date. Unfortunately for others, their Costco's do not seem to carry these products.
Please - keep it coming!!

Ours also has a gluten-free chicken nugget (yum yum yum) that is in a 3 lb frozen bag.   I am told that this is a close out but the reason is unclear WHY (could be on the grounds that it's being discontinued or could be something else like packaging change or configuration change).

 

One of the things I MISS MOST is the ability to drive through a fast food restaurant and grab and go.   And my favorite thing ever was deep fried McD's nuggets with BBQ sauce (I would not be able to have one bite of this now or ever after).  So get to Costco NOW and pick this up if you have it (and i do not recall the brand).

I saw the fresh linguine last month while I was shopping. It was just a bit out of my price range at the time, but I was still excited to see it. Somehow though I ended up with a HUGE box of Glutino oreos that were gone in a week. :ph34r: Going to pass on those in the future, I like fitting into my pants. :P I love that they have so many offerings, and even more I love that almost every time I go they have enough gluten free samples that I get a free meal out of it. I always show up hungry when I go shopping at Costco.

Kids n I just tried Sabatasso gluten-free pizza. PRETTY DAMN GOOD!  Vey cheesy. And the price is reasonable. About the size of a regular small pizza, and it costs $12 for a 2pk. Just sent my son to buy a few boxes!! 

FRESHETTA also has decent gluten-free pizza but it costs $15 for 2 that you can get at some BJ's. I'd rather get the Sabatasso's at COSTCO.

Sabatasso an Freshetta are Schwan's brands.  If you have the yellow Schwans truck in your area you might be able to get gluten-free pizza from them too!!

Boy we really love this sabatasso pizza but damn the calories, sodium & fat cld send me into cardiac arrest! I eat a mere 1/8 n stop. Luckily my kids are underweight n young so they do quite well with it. And 2 for $12 u cant be that!! Not sure if theres a pepperoni version but if there is my costco doesnt have it. We have to add it ourselves. no big deal.

    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks  
    • Before i was diagnosed 2 years ago i had a severe chronic itchy scalp.  It would develop minor pimple like blisters then turn in to sores from the intense scratching.  At the time the dr i saw did a punch biopsy on the original sore, it came back with a florescent pattern and micro abcessing.  i saw a dermatologist who said it was a staph infection (wasn't checking for dh) sent me home with cream and a steroid lotion, didnt work. Shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac and went back to the dermatologist.  He did a punch biopsy BUT he took it from the top of my butt cheek saying that was the most common spot for dh to manifest.  My results were negative.   my question is...   Can this be a false negative due to the punch biopsy not being taken from skin adjacent to the lesions? since being gluten free the intensity has subsided but is still there.
