What Do You Buy From Costco, Sams?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I don't have a membership currently to either. I used to have one to Costco but decided I was wasting too much time (the place is a madhouse) and money. I know they sell gluten free crackers for good prices in bulk. I'm considering re-joining because I also want to increase my fruits and veggies and their quality was always very good. What other gluten free items are sold at Costco or Sams? Which one has a better selection?

I don't know about Sam's, but at Costco I get butter, chicken, veggies of one sort or another, eggs, and a couple of years ago I got the computer monitor I'm using right now through costco.com for a good price! I recently got a big box of Mary's gone crackers since it had a coupon, but I still haven't tried them yet. It may end up being one of the few items with soy I'll eat on occasion. The price for that large box (after $2 off) was actually less than the price for a small box at a natural foods store I go to. Oh yeah, I also get the extra light olive oil I use for mayo at Costco.

I used to get their hamburg, but I started reacting to beef so for now I don't get it. They also have lara bars available. They also have a good cheese selection, if you can eat that. I'm hoping I can soon.

Try the Kirklands pulled pork at costco, tasty. I also like to get a few bags of (kirkland) mission chips which are cheap and are great to munch on between meals.

My MILK brought a rotisserie chicken home from Costco last week that was gluten free. It's little simple things that make me happy. She also brought home some maple sunrise cereal that is delicious. It's a nice crunchy breakfast that's good with some fresh or dried fruit added. (I want to say the brand is Nature's something or other, I don't feel like trekking up the stairs to the kitchen to check.) I don't have my own membership but will probably get one soon since she seems to find so many things to bring home.

Samsclub chicken is gluten free. It says so right on the package and we have NEVER had any reaction to it. We buy a lot of products (most listed above) from both places. I would say Costco has more Gluten Free options available. Ours now carry gluten-free waffles also.

I was referring to the pre-cooked Rotisserie, Whole Chicken, that contains wheat on the label.

Totally forgot about them, but was super excited when I read the package in January. Costco has chicken cranberry jalapeno meatballs that are gluten free. I pop open a can of cranberry sauce (jellied or whole berry, whatever flips my fancy that day) and throw it in a pan with good measure of Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce and some brown sugar. So good on rice, and I don't think they're spicy at all.

We go to Costco. I have noticed that different Costco's have different items. 2 years ago, we went to the one in Reno & they had almond flour and a couple of others I can't remember now. Not at our Costco in Kansas. Some people have gotten a gluten-free tortellini or ravioli but I look every time..... :angry:

I do get my favorite Crunchmasters crackers. When Costco was out, my neighbor let me use her SAMs to get some I needed for a party.

Essential Baking Company bread

Kirkland organic chicken stock

I've been known to pick up meatballs and warm chickens on occasion.

I get frozen veggies and fruits and chicken breasts.

My husband stocks up on Trio bars there, they also have Lara bars but he isn't the fan I was before I had to give them up. (can't have dates, they're perfectly safe for us)

Fruit leather (I don't remember the brand but it is awesome!)

Crunchmaster Crackers

 

They have rice at my local Costco that is all non-gmo and blah blah blah super health stuff all over the package but I forget the brand. Starts with an L or something. I have enough rice in my storage to feed a small army though so I'm not buying any at the moment. 

 

I don't buy, but did at one point confirm with them that Kirkland brand rice milk is actually gluten free (not processed with barley like a certain brand) and is very reasonably priced. But since I am drinking cow milk these days I'm not going to spend money on rice milk. As always, double check these sorts of things yourself before purchasing as it has been quite some time since I attempted to be dairy free. (yeah... screw that)

We love to shop at Costco... it makes my gluten-free 3 yr old very happy that they always, always have gluten-free samples.  Seriously... for every gluten sample they have, there is another nearby booth with a gluten-free sample!

The cheese and avocado are fine, the gluten was not aerosolized anything like that. NOW if your allergic to wheat there could be some issues being around it like that (some severe cases of peanut allergies can go off if it is in the room) but you would be anaphylactic.  I get the paranoia, it gets to the point of being almost PTSD. You fear to get sick so bad because the weirdest things have bedridden you. I got glutened touching gluten residue on facets, fridge door handles, etc in my old
