Let's Talk Costco!

Recommended Posts

I bought some Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce but I'm reading Modified Food Starch, "Sprices", Natural flavor, have you had it confirmed it's OK? I went to the site and couldn't tell. Looks yummy!

Jenvan, you made my day! It was delicous. No more sitting around the table for me eating plain dry chicken breasts while everyone else munches. Thanks! Reminded me of the "good-old-days" just in time for summer bbq season.

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:

The Costcos around my house serve Hebrew National Hot Dogs, which are gluten free (no bun of course..)

I have a related question (regarding the Hebrew National Hot Dogs) - I am under the impression that only beef hot dogs with NO MSG's are safe for us to eat? Hebrew National I believe have MSG's? What's the deal - am I totally confused with the gluten free diet or what????? :blink:

MSG in the US does not have gluten, generally. It's unhealthy for anyone, though. From a celiac standpoint, Hebrew National is safe.

So I know I'm not the only one with a Costco membership.

What are your favorite Gluten-free things to buy at Costco?

So far I've discovered that their Kirkland line of vitamins are mostly gluten-free and say "GLUTEN FREE" clearly on the side of the package (I've so far checked my Fish Oil, Cal/Mag, MSM and Fiber supplements and verified they are all gluten-free).

What other gluten-free products does Costco carry? I'm especially interested in any products that aren't totally junky. I want to start doing more of my shopping there since it saves me so much money, but so much of the food they sell is super-processed and therefore not safe.

EDITED TO ADD: How strange, I made this as a new post but instead it got put at the end of an old post - Maybe because we used the same subject line! Anyway, I figure it doens't hurt to bump this topic up for more discussion ;-P

I shop a lot at Costco. I'm very recently gluten-free so I'm still learning, but definitely I'll continue to buy the cheese. I'm a real cheese person. The string cheese makes a nice snack. My Costco also carries Amy's gluten-free enchilada meals in the freezer section. It's a 6 pack with 3 cheese and 3 black bean. Some people have reported CC issues with Amy's but I've not had a problem. These are really yummy.

In the snack section they have a really tasty dried fruit and nuts "trail mix" that I put in my lunches. It's kind of like granola minus the granola. B) My Costco also just got in Lara bars. I really really like Lara bars. Since they're just fruit and nuts they're not too bad for you and not too highly processed. And they pack really well. At Costco they are less than $1 per bar so that's a really good deal too. I've also just tried Sweet Baby Ray's barbeque sauce which I saw on a gluten-free food list. That's really tasty.

Obviously I still buy the naturally gluten-free stuff - meats, wine, cheese, fruit juices. And I'm eyeing a toaster oven too. :)

I read on a list that the lattes/mochas both hot and cold that Costco sells in the snack bar are gluten-free too.

    Also, I just wanted to address a couple of things about enzymes. I get routinely criticized for endorsing them because the major support groups haven't fully endorsed their use. I am not sure how much science it takes for them to finally...
    Bananas have a lot of sugar.  1 serving is actually half a banana.  
    Travelling is always a challenge, but another of the things in life, like eating out, that I simply won't give up. There is a reason I moved to wine country California--wine and good restaurants! I hope you'll be on here during your travels...
