    My favorite items to buy at Costco are pork shoulder, Pecorino roman cheese and dried cherries…but that’s only a few of my favorites.. I could go on and on…like with wine and pastas, but you better not get me started.

    A week doesn’t go by that I don’t run into Costco and come home and say “I love Costco”.

  2. VanessaG

    My favorite thing to buy is the fresh vegetables and fruits. I love that I can buy a large quantity (and of good quality)so much cheaper. Yummy!!

  3. Chris Bennett

  6. Brandi J

    It’s hard to choose just one favorite from Costco, but right now it would have to be their organic tortilla chips!

  7. I love their roasted chicken because I can use it in so many different recipes…or…just enjoy it with a couple side dishes! Costco is a great place to shop!!!

  8. Judy Jursch

    Hard to pick one favorite thing to buy at Costco, but one of the things I buy the most frequently is their fresh salmon. It’s the best deal in town!

  9. Stephanie

    I spend lots of time and money at good ‘ole Costco. But recently I love the herb crusted deli turkey. I think the brand is Columbus. Holy heck, so good.

  10. Everything! My daughter has been know to go with a friend and eat all the samples and then get a hot dog for lunch (broke college students).

  11. Linzie

    Wow, just one favorite? Hmmm that would have to be their Churros! I know I know, but who can resist their warm sugary goodness ;0)

  12. I can’t really choose just one. I love Costco. I love buying baby wipes there because they last forever, I also love buying produce because it’s so fresh.

  13. Natalie R

    My favorite thing is their laundry detergent…I know, nothing fun, but we go through a lot of laundry here and theirs lasts the longest for my $$.

  14. Mandie

    What’s not to love at Costco? I buy my dog and cat food there. The last time I was there I bought a bag of dark chocolate covered acai/ blueberries. Oh my word! Delicious!

  15. Cori

    So many things…

    The Hanna Andersson clothes for little girls are great deals and once in a while I splurge and buy the chocolate covered pomegranate seeds…amazingly delicious and addicting.

  16. I don’t have a Costco club card…so I don’t shop there. Which means I don’t have a favorite thing to buy there.

    But I do have a Sam’s Club membership, and my favorite thing to buy there is bulk meats that I can individually package and freeze and save lots of money from grocery store prices.


  17. oooohhh I love EVERYTHING from Costco. Seriously, I love it! My favorite thing…their truffles (chocolate ones at Christmas), toilet paper, Food Should Taste Good Whole Grain chips…the list goes on.

    I love so many things at Costco, and buy a huge amount of stuff once a month! My favorite thing to buy is probably their frozen, individually wrapped boneless , skinless chicken breasts. Super convenient and tasty too!

  20. Carrie M.

    Costco and I are GREAT Friends. The single thing I like most about Costco is that I can forget or lose my receipt and can take back my item that didn’t work out properly. In otherwords, my favorite thing is REFUNDS without problems.

  21. Rachael

    What don’t I like to buy at costco? Meat is always a good price, sea food is a steal, and the wine is pretty cheap too.

  22. Diana Jimenez

    I love buying frozen edamame from Costco. They are packaged in individual servings and my 3 year old requests them all the time. It’s so quick to just toss in the microwave since the bag is microwave safe.

  23. Rachel Miller

    My favorite things to buy at costco are the chocolate chip muffins and meat! Their meat is always so fresh and of good quality. Just cant resist it!

  31. ellen

    My favorite thing to buy at Costco: Tillamook Pepper Jack Cheese by the block! Then I look at the magazines, the potted plants, CDs before I put stuff I need into my cart: TP, napkins, paper towels, laundry and dish detergent, shampoo, toothpaste, vitamins, etc.

    p.s. I made those sandwich cookies and was it ever a hit! Thank you.

  32. Oh, goodie! We love costco! Hmm, favorite thing would be the pizza. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Lol! But I love browsing the aisles…there’s so much great stuff and it’s so much neater and cleaner than BJ’s. ๐Ÿ™‚ They have a great cookbook selection! ๐Ÿ˜€ We bought some *amazing* fudge from there at Christmas-time. ๐Ÿ˜€

    ~Miss Rachel~

  33. Mary W.

    I hate to be boring, but I use it for things I like to ALWAYS have in the house! Milk, mushrooms, spinach, etc.

    My husband likes the food court better than anything. ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. My favorite thing to buy at Costco is the Rotisserie Chicken. We can get 2-3 creative meals out of it plus 4 jars of chicken stock. You can’t beat that for $5.99!

    Love the paper paper products and veggies. Always bring home a roast chicken and even make stock out of the remains. Oh and dog bones.


  38. I love a lot of things from Costco, but my favorite item is the uncooked tortillas they sell. They’re affordable, delicious, and surprisingly made with whole wheat flour. They taste great and the whole family loves them!

  39. Jennifer

    I’m boring! I usually just get staples there: milk, cream (for homemade ice cream), bananas, carrots, etc. Occasionally we’ll splurge and get their pizza and pistachios.

  40. I like to buy things in large quantity to last me throughout the school year! (I live in a dorm and have to eat cafeteria food most of the time…it’s nice that I can buy snacks to keep on hand for the entire year, which is cheaper!)

  41. Kristen M

    Oh I don’t know if I have a costco favorite since I love everything but I always walk out with vinegar, milk and mac and cheese

  42. Amy Lowe

    We love Kirkland Signature tortilla chips and the KS brand organic salsa. At our house, you can they are one item ๐Ÿ˜‰

  43. The better question is what don’t we buy at costco?? Our favorite is probably free and clear laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, pretty much anything you don’t want to run out of and can buy in bulk!

  44. Debbie R.

    Roasted ready-done chickens – love to buy extra, cut them in half and freeze them, so they are on hand all the time!

  45. Maureen L

    I love the Kirkland bacon bits!!! They are real bacon and you get over a pound-great for dips, salads, baked potatoes….anything where you want a touch of bacon-and it is the real deal-not FAKE!!!!

  46. eisbeckers

    My favorite thing to get at Costco is either their canned chunk chicken or their awesome chocolate chunk cookies. Maybe that’s why I am “chunk”y! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  47. Right now it’s milk and bread–the basics at the best price. And gas. But I love everything at Costco. It’s BULK and QUALITY put together, which seems to be a rare thing.

  48. Ty Gray

    I love the macadamia carmel and nut clusters…but lets be honest I can always find something as Costco that I can’t live without.

  49. Coral

    I love their marcona almonds (so much cheaper than buying them in the store!), snack bars, and lunch meat. I also buy my toilet paper, trash bags, and paper towels there. There’s always something new I see when I visit. Can’t forget the berry sundae on the way out too!

  50. Jennifer

    I love Costco! I’m a huge fan of their frozen potstickers, cases of soda, grapefruit cups, and muffins – just to name a few. I used to love their Post Cherry Almond Crunch cereal, but they stopped carrying it. ๐Ÿ™ I never leave Costco without a cart-ful of goodies!

  51. Becca W

    Costco used to sell the best mango salsa, but mine quit carrying it about a year ago. I don’t know what I’d do without their canisters of fresh Parmesan.

  52. marla richards

    Other than the great date night of shopping and having hot dogs/diet coke you can’t beat the price of dog food when you have 2 hungry dogs at home!

  53. Tawna

    I love to buy real bacon crumbles at Costco. Weird, I know, but it makes cooking with bacon that much easier. It’s great with pasta, soups, breakfast foods, etc.

  54. Michelle

    I love buying meat there at Costco because it is such good quality and good price. I buy pork roasts & chicken breasts there mostly.

  55. Annette

    My favourite thing to buy at costco is flowers! It’s not the thing I buy most often, but when I feel like treating myself I can get a fabulous bouquet of flowers for only $15 or so.

    And I already follow you on facebook!

  56. shanda

    I always have new favorites at Costco but my recent favorites is there oatmeal. I think it’s called coaches oatmeal. Yum.

  57. Nicole

    That’s a tough one. My daughter loves their rotisserie “chicken on the bone” and I love to get the hand-dipped ice cream bars from the snack bar…until I was told they are 900 calories each! Yikes.

  58. Jessica

    I love so much about Costco, but I would probably say my favorite thing to buy is clothes for my kids. They are so cheap for such good quality.

  63. Lisa

    I love to buy the chocolate covered almonds! Yum! I buy several other things there as well but those are a special treat.

  64. Tracy

    Stew meat. It’s never fatty and I can come home and separate it out into freezer bags and it will last me through about 4 or 5 different meals (tacos, stew, etc.).

  65. mary

    Going through chemo a year ago, nothing tasted good to me except Meza Traditional Hummus. I ate it every day! I still buy it regularly and now that Costco carries Fage yogurt, that is always in my cart.

    My fav to buy at Costco is their laundry detergent, it works awesome, smells great and the price can’t be beat.
