Let's Talk Costco!

Recommended Posts

I am going on a 4 day trip to Pa. and thought I would pack all my food for the trip. I usually stock up on fruit and veggies there. I am just starting to plan all this. My first trip with food. I'll be traveling by car through Maryland, Delaware and thought I would just cook everything and take some coolers. The hotel will have a ref. and microwave. I usually don't use a microwave-trying to save the enzimes. No whole foods here but I'll also shop at the health food store. Thanks, LindaLee

I've never seen anything gluten-free at costco (esxcept for fruit and vegies). :(

I think someone said the rotisiere chicken was. Not sure what else.

I buy the big tub of hommus they sell for like $4.75. Great with crackers or veggies and travels better than something dairy. I think it was spinach artichoke flavor. My dad buys the big packs of dried meat sticks they have in the cooler by their lunchmeats. I haven't checked their gluten status, but if they're gluten-free they'd travel nicely. Get sliced lunchmeats and cheeses and make up a container of meat and cheese roll-ups (I got turkey there that said gluten free on the package and I love their Muenster cheese). Very easy to eat in the car. Big bag of almonds or some other nuts, Boost shakes, fruit snacks, trail mix. Can you guys tell I basically live in the car??

For cook and take food I like to do mostaccioli or penne type noodles with a tomato and meat sauce. I reheats well and is filling. You could make up some kind of rice with chicken and veggies in it. Or sausage and sauerkraut. Think things that will be "one bowl" meals. I think they have Stagg chili at Costco.

Sounds good. What trail mix do you buy? I want to try to make one if I can't find one gluten-free. Thanks for all the help. Do you buy the rotisterie chicken? LL

Actually, I usually get Harmony brand trail mix from Meijer because that's closer to me than Costco. I think Costco has their own brand of trail mixes and dried fruit blends. I've never had a problem with their trail mixes. Sorry I can't remember the name.

Is Meijer a grocery store? I'm in Va.

You can get Mrs Mays products, such as the almond clusters, at Costco.

Nevermind, I just read the post that said these are no longer gluten-free. So, don't buy these.

Went to Costco last night... They do have some gluten-free stuff there, but not a ton. They have some naturally gluten-free tortilla chips and I bought a 6 pack of Thai Kitchen micro meals. Also...there are assorted nuts that are gluten-free.

My Costco has Pacific foods organic chicken broth, but right now I have a Sam's membership, so I don't go in there much unless I sneak in to look around and get a hot dog :ph34r:

I was so excited when I saw that in there. I use it all the time. Wow, we can eat the hot dogs? I know you get it without the bun but can you eat all the condiments there? I used to always get the yogurt. I just make sure I am full before I go in that place.

I don't know if we can eat the hotdogs or not, I'm on a gluten challenge for my biopsy. Something tells me that they're nathan's though, and not gluten-free. Sorry for not mentioning that :unsure:

Be carefully with tortilla chips, sometimes wheat flour is added for consistency :unsure:

I called Costco and the Santa Barbara Salsa -Deli style is gluten-free. She said all her salsa's are gluten-free. Costco also carries the Mango and itsGF. They have a lot of others they sell at Food Lion(Roasted Garlic )Their web site is www.sbsalsa.com. They have recipes too. This was a returned call to me from Santa Barbara. Costco is going to let me know about the hot dogs and yogurt. LLee :)

where in Pa are you going to be? There are several nice gluten-free stores around but I would need to know where you will be to tell if any would be fairly close to you. You can pm me with your destination and I'll give you places if they are close.....

I pked up some of the broth too--yum. Great deal. This wouldn't be for travel per se, but they also have (can't remember the brand), Taquitos that are labeled Kirkland but made by a name brand. They don't contain gluten. Can anyone remember the brand name?

Be careful of any canned chicken to make chicken salad. I don't remember what brand it is specifically at my Costco, but there is wheat starch listed as an ingredient.

It has been soooo nice since packaging changed and they have to list main allergens at the bottom of ingredients! I frequently eat Costco's hot whole chickens and highly recommend them. They are gluten-free. I put them on top of their bulk salad greens. I haven't found anything off their cafe list I can have, if anyone finds out anything is OK please post it. Their is a dry salami (maybe Gallo?) I have also used on the road traveling. I have noticed that each Costco depending on it's location sometimes carrys local items that you cannot find in other Costcos in different states.

    I haven't. Up until now I have only had the standard run of the mill celiac blood test that a GP would order. In May I'll be seeing a specialist in gluten ataxia who no doubt will run the complete panel. Is it something you can order...
