No doubt, my Costco membership is one of the best investments I've ever made. From the free samples to the awesome bulk prices, I’m definitely guilty of frequenting the store a little more often than necessary. That’s because they are constantly getting new products, specifically food items, that are low price and high quality. Here are the Costco food items you should be buying right now.

1. Annie’s Organic Toaster Pastries

chocolate, cheese, milk, candy

Price: $4.79

Put down those highly processed Pop-Tarts and swap them for Annie’s Organic Toaster Pastries. Made with real simple ingredients and no high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, synthetic colors or preservatives, these certified organic pastries are a much better choice. They are also packed with real organic fruit and 16 whole grains per serving, so you don’t feel bad about picking up a box of these. 

2. Pocky Sticks

milk, sweet, chocolate, candy

Price: $8.99

Because one box of Pocky Sticks is not enough. This Japanese snack consisting of chocolate covered crispy biscuits is insanely addicting, so pick up this 12-pack on your next Costco run.

3. Clif Bars

chocolate, sweet

Price: $18.99

I’m sure you’ve had CLIF bars before, but did you know you can buy them in bulk at Costco for a fraction of the price? These are a great breakfast substitute or snack on-the-go when you need a kick of protein. 

4. Mary’s Gone Crackers

Sidney Uttam

Price: $7.99

Organic, gluten free, and vegan  — these delicious whole food crackers are perfect for snacking. Pair them with some nut butter, cheese, or deli meat and you'll have yourself a healthy, satisfying snack. 

5. Malteasers

Sidney Uttam

Price: $8.79

Previously only available in the UK, these Whopper-like candies have finally hit the US. Costco was kind enough to provide us with enormous tubs of Maltesers, perfect for the British candy-loving crowd. 

6. Larabars

Sidney Uttam

Price: $13.79

Made with a few simple ingredients, Larabars are a great healthy snack for when you're on-the-go. This variety comes with nine Apple Pie and nine Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough bars, for less than $1 per bar.

7. Figgy Pops

cake mix, goody, milk, candy, sweet, chocolate
Sidney Uttam

Price: $10.99

These nutrient-packed energy balls are 100 percent clean, gluten free, and organic. The ingredient list is full of good-for-you foods that will give you a boost of energy and keep you satisfied. Not to mention, they are delicious.

8. Nutella & Go Hazelnut Spread and Breadsticks

peanut butter, sweet, milk, candy, chocolate

Price: $7.79

Whether you pack these in your lunch or have them as a simple afternoon snack, you can never go wrong with adding Nutella to your day.

9. Chia Seeds

herb, tea
Sidney Uttam

Price: $7.49

There is so much you can do with chia seeds — add them to smoothies, top your salads, or add them to overnight oats. They're full of protein, omega-3s and fiber, so you'll feel full longer and stabilize your blood-sugar levels. 

10. Coconut Oil

tea, coffee
Sidney Uttam

Price: $14.99

Here is a HUGE Costco hack. This 84 oz jar of coconut oil will last you a lifetime and is only a quarter of the price you would pay per ounce at your local grocery store.

11. Brownie Brittle

beer, chocolate
Sidney Uttam

Price: $6.69

For all the chocoholics out there, this one is for you. This bag contains all of the chocolaty goodness you find in a brownie, but in a crispy cookie form. I could go through an entire bag of this stuff in one sitting, so I highly recommend you portion your servings out rather than eating straight from the bag. But hey, #noregrets. 

12. My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream

Sidney Uttam

Price: $10.99

Creamy ice cream wrapped in squishy rice dough? Yes, please. These little bites are the perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth and includes three different flavors: Ripe Strawberry, Vanilla Bean, and Sweet Mango. 

13. The Cheesecake Factory Cheesecake

milk, dairy product, candy, cake, cream, chocolate, sweet
Sidney Uttam

Price: $14.99

If you love cheesecake and don’t live close enough to a Cheesecake Factory, you’ll be happy to know Costco sells 9” cheesecakes in the frozen section. This variety box includes Double Chocolate, Vanilla Bean, White Chocolate Raspberry, and Dulce de Leche Caramel, so there's a flavor for any sweet tooth. 

14. Kevita

wine, alcohol, liquor, beer
Sidney Uttam

Price: $11.99

In case you haven’t heard, Kombucha is all the rage right now. So, naturally, it is extremely over priced at your local grocery stores. Save your wallet and pick up a 6-pack at Costco for only $12.

15. K-Cups

tea, beer, coffee
Sidney Uttam

Price: $34.99

Quit buying the tiny little boxes of 12 K-Cups, because let's be real, we drink at least three cups a day (the minimum, really). Costco sells many varieties of K-Cups (including our beloved Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts) in boxes of up to 180 cups. This is by far one of the best deals at Costco for coffee addicts like myself. 

I’m not gonna lie, it was extremely hard picking only 15 items from the wide variety of food they sell at Costco, but I chose to go with some of the newer additions that people might not know about. They really have it all from pantry staples, frozen foods, beverages, and snacks, so don’t be afraid to stock up on the things with a long expiration date.
