Costco is a glorious place. My mom is a member and often comes home with tons of snacks from her Costco run (perks of being a college student home for the summer). But when it's back-to-school time, I know I'll wanna stalk up on these items for my own pantry. If you need some new Costco snacks to try, check out this list of fun eats. 

Edward Marc Dark Chocolate Coconut Almonds

These are my new obsession. If you've been to the Milkshake Factory in Pittsburgh, these chocolates are made by the same company. These chocolate covered almonds are similar to an Almond Joy, but honestly, they're better. They taste fancy and are the perfect size. The bag is a bit pricey (about $9.99), but the best chocolates are worth the extra cash.

The Good Bean Crunchy Chickpeas

While the flavor isn't super strong, the crunch is nice as well as the salt. Crunch and salt are what we're lookin' for in snacks, right? They are also non-GMO and Hexane-free, among other things. If sea salt is still too boring for you, you can get the chickpeas in other flavors such as Thai coconut and sweet cinnamon.

Deavas Organic Dark Chocolate Belgian Thins

These chocolate thins are incredibly fun to munch on. The bitterness of the dark chocolate pairs well with the bits of berries and nuts that add extra flavor and texture. They contain many other filling ingredients too, like buckwheat, sunflower seeds, goji, almonds, quinoa, and pumpkin seeds. Believe me, you won't be bored eating them. It's also worth noting that they are vegan and gluten-free.

180 Snacks Blueberry Pomegranate Clusters

If you're looking for more snacks with extra texture, these clusters are for you. They pack in different nuts, rice, seeds, and fruits. They're the type of snack I want to take on my next hike. They're also organic and vegan-friendly!

Rhythm Superfoods Kool Ranch Kale Chips

Kale is pretty weird, I'm not going to lie. But weird things can still taste good. It's leafy, crispy, and beautiful — this kale also has a ranch flavor, and is crunchy without being fried. They have other flavors of this kale as well including two usual crowd favorites: garlic and onion. They are also gluten-free and vegan.

If you're tired of the same basic snacks, I highly recommend checking these ones out on your next Costco trip. If you don't have a membership, or they don't happen to have these items in stock, the products own websites are worth looking at. This is a fun and simple way to add more flavor and excitement to snacking.
