The closest one is almost 2 hours from me so before I go I need to try and figure out what I can buy and what to look for. I know that all carry different things but if you can give me a list of things you buy and the brand that would be a huge help. We are going in 2 weeks so I have time to research what we can and can't buy there.

I buy so much stuff at Costco! I live 14 miles from a grocery store so I buy a lot of stuff in bulk because I just don't have time to "run out" all the time. Not all stores carry the same items but here's what I get at my local Costco (Kirkland brand unless otherwise specified): McCormick spices, raw nuts, frozen tuna, salmon and beef, eggs, sugar, rice, olive oil, vitamins, Gain laundry detergent, Colgate toothpaste, Garnier shampoo/conditioner, and Cowboy charcoal.

Other gluten-free items that I've seen but don't get due to other issues: Mrs. May's bars, Envirokidz cereal, condiments (Heinz ketchup, Worcestshire sauce, etc.), frozen veggies. Costco also has a lot of cheese and I'm sure some of it is gluten-free.

They have a lot of things I do not buy because the quantity is so large it would either take us forever to use, or I just don't have a place to store.

I buy paper plates, cups and plastic cutlery.

I buy cat litter.

I buy toilet paper, paper towels and wet wipes.

I buy assorted produce, some of it organic. We love the sliced apples and baby carrots.

I buy canned meats, canned vegetables, chicken broth.

I buy nuts and chewing gum.

I buy magazines.

I buy fresh cut flowers.

I buy fresh and prepared meats. Sometimes cheese.

Bought some school supplies, shoes, clothing, batteries.

There are other non-gluten-free things I buy for my husband.

Mary's Gone Cracker...they're awesome and super cheap at Costco. I know they'll probably take them away soon (because they seem to do that to many products I like :) ).

I'm not sure how it is nationwide, but in my Costco in Chicago, they have rotisserie chicken that clearly says on the label "no gluten." I've eaten them many times, and I've never had a problem.

Omigosh, I found something fabulous at Costco! It's called Island Way Sorbet, and it is a package of 12, 4 flavors of sorbet. Each individually-wrapped sorbet comes inside a hollowed out fruit half! The lemon sorbet is inside a lemon half. The pina colada one is inside a small pineapple half. The coconut is inside a coconut half, and the orange-mango is inside an orange half!

The credit goes to my daughter - she saw them and said that her HS student store sells these. So I looked over the ingredients and decided to buy them, even though I wasn't sure about the "natural flavors." They're 12.99 for a box, so not cheap, but each dessert is quite a large serving and they are absolutely delicious. I emailed the company regarding their gluten-free status and received this reply:

"Dear Hummingbird4,

Thank you for contacting Island Way Sorbet. We are pleased to inform you that all our products are gluten free.

Your Friend At The Island"
