9 Foods & Grocery Items You Should Always Buy at Costco

Making a Costco run soon? Then make sure to stock up on these nine items that CNBC says you should always buy at the membership-only warehouse club:

  • Baked goods. Costco cannot be beat on its in-house bakery treats such as pies, cakes and cheesecakes. And did you know you can also buy Einstein Bros. bagels there for $5.99 a dozen? You'd easily pay twice as much at a bagel shop.
  • Cheese. Blocks of basic cheeses like cheddar and mozzarella are well-priced at Costco, which sells 32-ounce blocks of mild cheddar cheese under its store brand, Kirkland Signature, for $4.59.
  • Chicken. Whether it’s cooked or fresh, Costco has great prices on chicken. Their $5 rotisserie chicken is so popular that the company is building a brand new production center in Nebraska to keep up with demand. Fresh, organic chicken is also typically a good value at Costco.
  • Frozen fruit. Especially if you’re buying organic, frozen fruit can get pricey. Not at Costco, where a 4-pound bag of Kirkland organic frozen strawberries is $4.95.
  • Olive oil. If you use olive oil on a regular basis, check out Costco’s organic, extra virgin olive oil, which offers great quality at a great price.
  • Maple syrup. Costco’s Kirkland Organic Pure Maple Syrup is a cult fave, and a 33.8-ounce bottle goes for a well-priced $12.79.
  • Snack foods. Snack foods are generally cheaper at Costco when the store offers coupons for them
  • Vanilla. One of the best deals at Costco is on pure vanilla extract, which costs $26.99 for a 16-fluid ounce bottle. It's been named the best budget pick for vanilla by several food blogs.
  • Wine. Costco's wine is absolutely one of its best deals, and believe it or not, it's super-high-quality. In fact, Costco took home a “best quality” award for its Kirkland Stag’s Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 at the Private Label Manufacturers Association’s in 2018.
