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.

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...
