8 Great Vegan Products at Costco
I never thought I’d shop at Costco since it’s just my husband and me in my household, but I made the switch when I read an article on how Costco pays its employees a fair wage and provides company-sponsored health insurance. For more on what’s so great about Costco, check out this Huffington Post article.
As a vegan, I was surprised by how many vegan items I’ve found and love at Costco. Seriously, it’s so amazing. The ones in the Bay Area have my favorite tofu ever (Hodo Soy), but we don’t have that in LA.
1. Sambazon açaí smoothies
I’m addicted to these açaí smoothie packs. I make açaí bowls with fresh fruit or put them in a smoothie. At Costco, it’s $10 for a 10-pack. Such a great deal. Plus, Costco also has the 3-Day Sambazon Purifying Cleanse pack. (Read my product review here). I tried the cleanse once, but I also like how the drinks taste so I buy them even if I’m not on a cleanse.
2. Gardein chicken sliders
I really love Gardein products. Costco used to have Gardein’s mandarin chicken that was great for a quick takeout-type dinner without ordering. I just spotted these crispy chick’n sliders and grabbed them right away. I love these crispy patties and they are a perfect accompaniment to a big salad for a quick, simple dinner or lunch.
3. MaraNatha almond butter
I’m also an almond butter addict, which can get pretty pricey. Luckily, a giant 26-ounce jar of roasted, creamy almond butter is less than $8 at Costco. Thank you.
Who doesn’t love avocados? This 3-pack of really awesome guacamole is perfect for parties. We just freeze the packages and defrost them when we need them. It’s so damn good.
5. Almond Breeze almond milk
Almond milk is my non-dairy milk of choice and I like that a 6-pack of almond milk is about $8 since I use it almost every day. I only wish that they would also carry chocolate because Brendan lives on chocolate almond milk. In fact, I think he’s mostly made of chocolate almond milk.
6. B12 supplements
This is the least sexy thing ever, but all vegans need B12 and a giant bottle of B12 supplements at Costco lasts me forever. I still have the bottle that I bought a year ago.
7. Gardenburger Malibu burger
Brendan loves all types of veggie burgers, so this Malibu burger 12-pack was perfect for him. I think they’re pretty good too.
8. Fruits & vegetables galore!
I bought a giant Earthbound Farms bag of baby spinach, kale, and chard for $5. That’s enough salad and green smoothies for a week or more. If I’m making green juice, I love grabbing cucumbers, romaine lettuce, and kale here. The berries are also a great buy. Plus, the large bags of frozen fruit like pineapple, strawberries, and cherries last forever.
