  5. Linda

    Wow, that’s really hard because Costco has so many great things! I really love their frozen onion soup. It’s frozen into single serving chubs, and you unwrap and microwave for a quick, DELICIOUS bowl of onion soup!

  6. Traci

    I love the premade Chicken Alfredo. My hubby will stop and pick one up for dinner on his way home from work. Its delish!!!

  7. Brittany H

    I like buying things like toilet paper & paper towels. The things that I HATE running out of and having to run to the grocery store to get. But, I also love their deals on cook books! Best prices around! And I love their samples! Its great being able to try something and THEN buy it, they always get me with the samples :o)

  8. Kaemoxmith

    I buy Jonny’s Garlic Spread from Costco – My pork tenderloins AND my Flowers (Even ordered my bridal flowers from there – and my sisters will be comming from there too!)!!!

  9. Danyelle Paquette

    I always love getting my fresh fruit and veggies there. I also buy most (if not all) of our meat there.

  10. Brooke

    What’s not to love at Costco? I buy so much there that our friends started calling us Mr & Mrs Kirkland! I love their bags of dry fruit and nuts. yum!

  11. Jey

    I get really dry skin, so I love buying those jumbo sized lotions. They last longer than the store bought and are much cheaper! ๐Ÿ˜›

  12. Brittany H

    sorry apparently there are automatic smiles and i insert a nose so it makes them look angry. HAHA! so ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Jenna Watson

    What I really would love to buy at Costco is the patio set they currently have but I usually just buy the basics, diapers, milk, butter and eggs.

  14. joanna

    I love Costco they always have great stuff, like HUGE bags of Stacys Pita chips for the same price of the tiny ones in the grocery and Chobani yougurt. Choco cover raisens, macadamian nuts, cute dresses for little girls and great seafood. Just got my membership last months and i love it!

  15. Crissy

    I love buying veggies and fruits at Costco. Red peppers and broccoli are two of my favorites. You can’t beat the price.

  16. Andrea

    One of my favorite things to buy at Costco is their big tub of spinach. I also fill up my car with gas whenever I go there because it’s always a few cents cheaper!

  17. Kelly

    Diapers has to be what I purchase the most. Not my favorite, but the big item I use the most. Wine would have to be my favorite!

  18. I’d have to say my fave thing to buy is a polish dog at the food court. I’m slightly embarrassed by this, but it’s totally true. I could buy 30 and 1/2 polish dog combos with a gift card (including tax).

    Oh! and magazines. Besides subscribing, no where else can you get an issue so cheap!

  19. Shannon

    It’s so hard to pick just one thing I love to buy from Costco because there are so many, but I guess I’d say the large jar of marinated artichoke hearts because they’re SUCH a huge savings from the small jars or cans at the grocer. Great giveaway!

  20. Margo

    Favorite thing to buy at Costco? Apparently, it’s everything NOT ON MY LIST! LOL…there is always something I find that I cannot live without and is not on the list. Based on my last visit…Books would be my answer!

  21. Erika

    I love EVERYTHING! But I most frequently buy formula and diapers and chicken and…
    Favorite: meeting my brother there for a huge slice of their pizza ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Kimberly Atkins

    Sound funky…but Cottage Cheese! We are Cottage cheese fanatics in our house, and it’s only a little under $5 for this big tub, compared to spending the same price for one half the size at a normal grocery store.

    Of course we stop off and get either a polish dog or a strawberry Ice Cream from the food court on the way out. ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. I most definitely need to win this because today is my birthday and I LOVE LOVE Picky Palate and Costco! Costco always has something I didn’t know I needed ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Christy

    My new favorite thing, as of yesterday, to buy at Costco are the frozen onion rings! You can bake them in the oven and are SO crispy!

    The question is more like, what don’t I like to buy at Costco? I’ve been going there my entire life (Literally! My parents and a Grandma took me to the original one in Kirkland, WA when I was a baby) and have quite the love affair with that concrete paradise.

  27. Susie

  45. we love to get the boneless skinless chicken thighs at Costco….we make a killer dr. pepper bbq chicken with them and mop up the sweet wholesome goodness with sticky rice!!! That’s just one of the many things we get from costco…but our most prized…that and their steak…awesome cuts of meat!!!

  49. Shanna Lemke

    I follow the RSS Feed too! Finally, I really love to browse the kitchen aisles. There are always cool appliances for a lower price. Some day I am going to buy that fry daddy, but the amount of calories I would consume is has been holding me back for years! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Costco is my FAVORITE store, great prices and great quality. We recently bought our bedroom furniture through their website–I LOVE IT!
    We grocery shop there every week and have things that are on the list every week. But the one thing that I’d be so disappointed if they stopped carrying is the organic spinach.

    So my favorite thing I buy at Costco is the organic spinach.
