💭Frequently asked questions
Costco has two different membership tiers in terms of pricing and benefits for both individuals and businesses.
First is the most common, the gold star membership at $60 per year for both businesses & households. The gold star membership gives you one household card to shop for your home and family. The business gold star membership allows you to shop for your household, for your business, and for resale (with restrictions).
The executive membership is $120 per year for both businesses and households. It follows the same structure that the gold star membership does with benefits, but you also get 2% cash back on all of your purchases, with a limit of a $1,000 reward annually. There are also lots of other benefits to consider.
A few things to note, membership is renewed annually, and can be done online, at the customer service desk, or simply while at checkout.
Also, you cannot shop at Costco, or use the gas station or any other services without a membership.
In our opinion, a Costco membership is absolutely worth it depending on your average shopping list or what you're looking to buy.
We save an average of $288 dollars a year on ground beef alone, so regardless of which membership you're going for, you can see how just how great the savings really are!
If you're planning on making some big purchases at Costco and/or shopping there often, you may want to consider the executive membership for the 2% cash back benefit.
No, prices and availability at Costco will vary a lot from location to location. We are located in Chicago, Illinois, and have tried our best to include pricing information whenever possible, but we cannot guarantee the accuracy.
Product availability at Costco varies a lot by location and sometimes changes without warning. Brands switch out and prices fluctuate.
Most of our shopping is done in the Costco warehouse, so the prices are reflective of that, for any prices we have listed. We try our best to update this list at least twice per year.
Not quite, or at least not all directly through Costco.com. Costco does has free two-day delivery on non-perishable items if you're shopping on their website, and if you meet the delivery minimum.
If you want access to nearly everything in the warehouse and you want it delivered, you can use Instacart. (At least in the Chicago area).
You can use Instacart to get keto foods at Costco delivered the same day for an additional fee per item. Basically, membership prices do not apply here, so just know that you will be paying a delivery fee on top of increased prices for items and a tip for your shopper and delivery person. If you don't mind that, click here for $10 off your first Instacart delivery!
🛒Tips & reminders
- Costco only accepts Visa credit cards! Costco has an exclusive arrangement with Visa, so you cannot shop with Mastercard, Discover, American Express, in the warehouse. You can shop with Mastercard and Discover online and on the app, and you can shop using any payment method on Instacart.
- Avoid weekends and holidays to miss the large crowds and long lines. Costco is best to shop at off hours, like week day mornings and afternoons.
- Bring containers to carry your groceries or use store provided boxes. We like to put storage bins in our car for carrying our groceries into the house later, since Costco doesn't provide bags. You can use store provided boxes, but they vary in size, shape, and availability depending on how busy the store is or when they last got a shipment of new products.
- Items that are priced ending in .97 cents are always on sale.
🥩Beef and lamb
Organic grass fed ground beef
- This Kirkland Signature brand tastes delicious. We usually buy a couple of packages and freeze some so that we're never out of it. At $19.99 for 4 pounds, the price for the quality is hard to beat! It might be a little confusing, but each vacuum sealed package is 1.34 pounds. So many of our favorite keto recipes are made with this organic grass fed ground beef. Conventional ground beef is also very affordable.
- Need some inspiration using ground beef? Try our keto Swedish meatballs, our beanless chili, these cast iron cheesy baked meatballs, or explore more beef recipes.
- Buying steak at Costco is a keto steak lover's DREAM and you can get some seriously impressive cuts here. For every day, our top picks are Ribeye, New York Strip, and Sirloin. Try our popular steak and seafood skillet with creamy parmesan sauce, this yummy steak salad, or these steak caprese skewers with walnut pesto.
- Ahhh corned beef. One of our favorite proteins of all time. We love to cook it in our Instant Pot, then make this Low Carb Reuben Skillet with it. Now this item might be more seasonal at some Costcos (think March for St. Patty's Day) but the last time we got one, it was $4.69 a pound.
- These sausages are a total game-changer. Absolutely delicious, and ready for an easy dinner. They are so flavorful and of great quality. Plus, it feels great to support a small, family-owned company. These sausages aren't the cheapest thing you can find at Costco, but they are very high quality and worth every penny. *Kiolbassa sausages are beef smoked sausage in a pork casing.
- Please note, we have numerous recipes made in partnership with Kiolbassa Smoked Meats. Like this baked zucchini noodles casserole, these grilled smoked sausage and shrimp skewers or this macro bowl packed with veggies.
Lamb leg boneless roast
- We buy these occasionally and let us just say WOW. They are absolutely delicious, easy to make, and of great value! It has been a while since we last bought one, but if we remember correctly, they should be $4.99 and pound, and that's all meat (no bone!) That's a really great deal for lamb.
- You can also occasionally find rack of lamb at Costco as well.
Other beef & lamb products
- Flank steak
- Shabu shabu
- Beef tenderloin
- Sirloin cap
- Ground bison
- Eye of round
- Stew meat
- Chuck roast (pot roast)
- Short ribs
- You can purchase three 14 ounce tubes of V&V Supremo pork chorizo for $8.49 per package. Chorizo and eggs? Yes please! We love this high fat and flavorful stuff. V&V Supremo is a really solid brand we have always trusted as well.
Pork shoulder, pork belly, pork loin, and pork ribs
- Love pork? Buy it at Costco! We love making big batches of pulled pork, oven baked keto ribs, making stir-fries with pork belly, and making pork loin roasts.
- You can get Swift premium pork vacuum-sealed, which makes for easy freezing. The shoulder will run you $2.99 a pound, whole tenderloin $3.49 a pound, and ribs are $4.29 a pound. Pork belly will run you $3.99 a pound. There are of course plenty of other cuts like chops, etc. but we tend to stick with these four, so we don't have a running total of the other cuts.
- Both the regular and thick sliced Kirkland brand bacon is a great buy. The thick cut is an unbeatable price, at $12.99 for 4 pounds. Add it to this sweet and savory brussel sprout skillet or really anything! The possibilities are endless!
Kirkland brand bacon bits
- These bacon bits are such a time saver when you need bacon but don't want to go thru the hassle of making it on the stove or in the oven. They're $9.69 for the bag, and they taste fantastic. We like to crisp them up a bit in a pan a lot of times before adding them to omelettes, on top of cream cheese, and even to our salads. Find them in this bacon cheddar and green onion dip, this low carb creamy chicken bacon spinach mushroom pasta and more!
- This is one of our all-time favorite buys. We absolutely love Premio Italian Sausage, and you can get 5 pounds of it for $13.99 at Costco. It freezes really well too. If you're looking for some easy low carb meal ideas to use this Italian sausage in, try this Italian sausage soup or these Italian sausage stuffed bell peppers.
Other pork products
- Pulled smoked pork - This prepared pulled pork is very easy to make for an easy keto dinner. It's $10.99 for 2 pounds, not bad at all, all you have to do is heat it up and eat it however you like!
- Jones Dairy Farm pork breakfast sausage - A huge frozen package of these breakfast sausages will make your morning so much easier. These sausages are great quality too. $10.99 for 3.5 pounds. You can pop these guys in the microwave for a part of a quick breakfast.
- Spam- Ahh Spam. We have honestly grown to love this stuff, and the ingredients are honestly very straightforward. It's high in fat, tasty, and can sit in your pantry, so that's pretty nice for quick meals! We love to serve it as a stir fry, in an omelette, or alongside eggs and kimchi. These come eight 12-ounce cans, and cost $18.99.
- Salami - We love buying this Cittero salami, it's less than $7 for both of the packages! It's perfect as a snack with some cream cheese and pickles, or on top of some keto bread at Costco as a part of a sandwich! We'll talk more about Costco's keto bread later on in this post.
- Prosciutto - Another one of our favorite cured meats! It's a great deal to get prosciutto di parma at Costco. It's roughly $1/ounce, which is a steal!
Organic chicken thighs, breasts, and whole young chicken
- If you want to buy organic chicken, Costco offers some of the toughest prices to beat. Organic chicken thighs will run you $4.49 a pound, organic chicken breasts are $4.99 a pound, and you can buy a whole organic young chicken for $2.99 a pound. Conventional chicken is also incredibly competitively priced, but we don't know those prices currently.
- Looking for something to do with all the chicken you bring home? Try these: jalapeño popper chicken skillet, creamy parmesan chicken and butternut squash, this chicken wrapped in parma ham stuffed with mozzarella or the rest of our chicken recipes!
- Ground turkey is one of those things we always have in the freezer or fridge for a quick, high protein and lean meal. You can't beat buying it in bulk at Costco. Try making our pumpkin alfredo with turkey, our keto spicy turkey chili or these buffalo turkey meatballs!
- You can also find great deals on whole turkeys at Costco during the holiday season.
Other chicken products
- Rotisserie chicken - One delicious chicken will run you $4.99, and we understand why it's everyone's favorite. Did you know that Costco actually loses 40 million dollars a year on their chicken? It's so good, that people come to Costco for it specifically, so Costco keeps the price low to encourage more food traffic in the store, even when it means losing money on that line item. They make it up elsewhere, since the average purchase price is around $150 at Costco.
- Canned Chicken- Six 12.5 ounce cans of canned chicken costs $9.89, unless they are on sale, which is often! We love making chicken salad and chicken melts. It's just an easy dinner or a snack.
- Deli meat- There are tons of options for deli meat here at Costco. One of our favorites is the Kirkland Brand Roast Turkey Breast, because it comes packaged in 3 separate containers, so you can be sure to use all of it before it spoils, since you can open the packages individually. 1.5 pounds of the Kirkland brand Roast Turkey breast will run you $9.99.
- Fresh & frozen salmon - Salmon is definitely one of our favorite fish options. Costco has a few options, but we generally opt for the Atlantic Salmon which will run around $8.99 a pound. Try our lohikeitto Finnish salmon soup or this low carb citrus glazed salmon.
- Norwegian smoked salmon - Who doesn't love smoked salmon, especially when it's a great deal?! $19.99 for 24 oz sounds great to us. We love snacking on this stuff, eating with with low carb crackers and bread, like with these smashed eggs on toast, on top of a low carb cracker, with cream cheese, avocado and everything but the bagel seasoning.
Lump crab meat
- Premium lump crab meat is definitely not cheap, but when it's around $15 for 8 ounces at other stores, and under $20 a pound at Costco, you can't beat it! You better believe we will be making some of these keto crab cakes by our friend Michael really soon!
- Seafood is always a great deal at Costco, and shrimp is one of our favorites. We love adding it to our low carb jambalaya or this shrimp bisque. Prices vary depending on the size of the shrimp, but you can expect to pay under 50 cents an ounce.
- Tuna has forever been one of the best deals at Costco, and sometimes the brands change. Right now, they are carrying Wild Planet and its a delicious, sustainably sourced tuna, and it's $15.99 for six 5-ounce cans. We also love the safe catch tuna option, it comes in packets! We don't know the price right off the top of our heads, but it's a great price for sustainably caught seafood.
Other fish & seafood
- Crab legs
- Lobster tails
- Sea bass
- Salmon burgers
- Ahi tuna steaks
One of the things we stock up on most when we go to Costco is dairy products. We are total dairy addicts, and it often makes for a great snack and ingredient in many keto recipes. It can also be expensive, especially when it's high quality. Save money by stocking up on products you use often!
- The shredded cheese at Costco has to be one of the greatest deals of all time. You can get 5 pounds of pre-shredded cheese that will last forever! Prices have been fluctuating a lot lately, and the last time we got some, cheddar Jack was $13.99. You can expect the mozzarella and Mexican shredded cheese to be around the same price. There are about a million ways you can use shredded cheese, as you know, but one of our favorite ways to use it is in these low carb cheddar biscuits.
Sharp cheddar block cheese
- If you're looking for block sharp cheddar cheese, you're also in luck, because 2 lbs costs $5.79. Great for snacking, and obviously, shredding.
Heavy whipping cream
- We are partial to the Horizon Organic brand of heavy whipping cream, and it's a good thing, cuz you can get a half a gallon of this stuff for $10.99. Helloooo homemade keto ice cream! We will work on a recipe for that, but in the meantime, check out this bourbon spiked hot chocolate for a decadent, boozy treat!
Half and half
- Another Horizon Organic product, it's $5.99 for half a gallon. You can pretty much swap this stuff out for anything you would use heavy whipping cream for if you don't want something as calorie-dense or that's just what you have on hand. Just be aware that doing so will increase carbs.
- We go thru a lot of cream cheese in our house. Whether it's making this cream cheese frosting for lots of cupcakes, or this to-die-for easy creamed spinach, there are endless uses for cream cheese. You can get six 8-ounce boxes of Raska's cream cheese for $6.99.
- It's right around $6.59 for two 10.5 oz logs of creamy goat cheese. Hard to beat that price! Try this "apple" cinnamon goat cheese dip, made with chayote squash in place of apples!
Organic cage free eggs
- There are a lot of affordable egg options here at Costco. We often buy the 2 dozen organic, cage-free eggs for $5.99. That's a great deal, and we like that it is a higher quality option.
- There are so many different options for sliced cheese at Costco, so we aren't going to list them all out, but one of our favorite options is the Roth Cheese Variety Pack! It comes with Monterrey Jack, Swiss Cheese, Colby Jack and Cheddar Cheese. It's perfect for a quick snack, or rollups with deli meat, pickles, cream cheese, etc. It's $8.99 for 2 lbs of cheese. Can't beat that.
- We use a lot of butter on the keto diet, so for cooking, baking, and everyday needs, we opt for the Kirkland brand! It's $10.99 for 4 pounds of butter. That's a lot of butter! We buy both salted and unsalted here a lot!
Kerrygold salted butter
- $12.99 for four 8 ounce blocks of this buttery goodness is a great deal for this buttery gold! We love using Kerrygold for more *special* occasions, like finishing a steal or making a bulletproof coffee.
- We love Daisy brand sour cream! We go through a lot of it too, so for $3.99 for a huge 3 lb tub, it's a great deal. This Avocado Lime Crema is a great way to use up some sour cream.
Cello organic fine grated parmesan cheese
- This stuff is great quality, tasty and easy for quick weeknight meals and snacks! An 18 ounce container costs $8.99. Perfect for topping bolognese sauce!
Good Culture cottage cheese
- This stuff tastes incredible, and this cottage cheese is of the highest quality. You will always find these in our cart from now on. They come individually packaged, which can be nice for grab-and-go high protein (and low carb) snacks.
🥜Snacks & Meal Replacements
Costco keto snacks and meal replacements are essential when shopping for keto foods at Costco. There are so many more snack and meal replacement items than we have listed here, but here are some things we often buy!
- These are AMAZING. We've been eyeing them for a while, and we're so glad we finally picked them up. They're truly great. Great quality ingredients, with 17g of protein per sandwich. They're $12.89 for 8 sandwiches.
- There are a couple of different options for Cello Cheese Whisps at Costco, and both usually hover around $9.79 for 9.5 ounces. Use it to dip in a variety of dips like creamy guacamole or this bacon cheddar and green onion dip.
Rhythm Foods organic cauliflower bites
- These crispy and crunchy cauliflower bites are absolutely delicious! You can get a large bag (5.75 ounces) for under $7! You can't beat that when the average 1.4 ounce bag runs around $3.99 at most grocery stores.
Tillamook Zero Sugar Beef Jerky
- These are awesome, we're a huge fan! Beef jerky is often made with tons of sugar, which is a shame, since it's so high in protein. Not anymore! Tillamook to the rescue. We have to say, it's really good too.
- A 2.8 pounds bag costs around $13.99, unless you can get them on sale. These almonds are roasted, salted and smokey, making for the perfect snack. Only 2 net carbs per serving too, with plenty of fat. Nice!
- Some of the best snacks around with their clean, simple ingredients. They are high in fat and protein. Occasionally Costco will carry a specialty flavor, but usually it's just the original flavor, for $10.99 for 16 ounces is way cheaper than buying it anywhere else.
La Terra Fina spinach artichoke dip
- La Terra Fina makes some seriously delicious dips. They have a couple different flavors that you can find at Costco, but one of their mainstays is the spinach artichoke dip. A 31-ounce container costs $7.99. Heat it up before eating it with some Whisps or pork rinds, it's delicious!
Fairlife Protein Shakes
- Now these were a "new to us" find at our local Costco, but wow, they're really great! Not only are they more affordable than Premier Protein shakes, the ingredients are cleaner too. So far we only have a chocolate flavor. They're $22.99 for 18 units. Do you have any other flavors at your Costco location?
Premier Protein shakes
- We are unsure of the current price, but these are certainly a deal at Costco, an 18 pack of 11-ounce containers is under definitely under $2 a unit. A great meal replacement when you're on the go!
Keto snack mix
- This is a newer item at our Costco, and it's by Nature's Garden. This Keto snack mix includes cheddar cheese, pepitas, almonds, macadamia nuts, and pecans. Only 2 net carbs per serving and it will certainly fulfill that salty snack craving! Get a 24 ounce bag for $13.79.
Shelf stable cauliflower rice
- This is a nice idea for shelf stable veggies, and it's pretty decent in a pinch! We do prefer frozen, but again, it's really great that this exists.
Other protein & snack options
- Protein bars
- Protein powder (including whey & plant based)
- Collagen powder
🍞Bread and starch replacements
Everyone needs something to replace typical high carb items like noodles, bread, buns and more on the keto diet. Luckily, Costco has a ton of options! Whether it's zero net carb Costco bread, keto friendly buns, wraps, or healthy low carb noodles, you will find what you need! (Please note that availability depends on the region.
Keto bread at Costco
- We've heard that some Costco locations carry different brands, but most Costco locations have keto bread. YAY! Our Costco store carries this Natural Ovens zero net carb bread, and it's very good. It will really hit the spot. We'd like to note that it isn't gluten free, but hey, it's bread, and it's quite tasty. Plus, it's only $7.89 for two whole loaves!
Keto buns at Costco
- These keto buns are by the same brand as the keto bread, and for 12 buns, you will pay $6.79 at Costco. It's incredible how good these taste, for 0 net carbs! Definitely add this to your next Costco keto shopping list!
- This brand also makes keto friendly hot dog buns available at Costco!
- People raved about these, and we finally found them at our Costco! Look for them in the refrigerated section near the meats and cheeses. This item isn't exactly a meal replacement, but a starch replacement rather. These are shirataki noodles, and they are only 1 net carb per serving. Amazing!! They fit with many different styles of food. Six, 8-ounce packages will run you $14.99. Try this caramelized shallot pasta with shrimp with the healthy noodles. It's delicious!
Crepini Egg Thins
- We love using these super thin and low calorie wraps for a quick snack! They are super tasty, with clean ingredients and they are perfect to make wraps with meat and cheese. We also like to fry them up with some butter, cheese and eggs for "breakfast pizza". Three 12-packs cost $7.99. They freeze well too when unopened, so go for it!
Other starch replacements
- Mission low carb tortillas
- Inno foods keto crackers
🍦Sweet treats & snacks
You're in luck if you have a sweet tooth, and you've sweet snacks on your costco keto list. Costco has a variety of sweet snacks that are perfect for the keto diet.
Keto Pint bars
- Keto friendly ice cream bars - it feels like keto food options just keep getting better and better! These keto pint bars are one of the tastiest things on the market, seriously. WE're so glad we can grab them in bulk now at Costco!
Dark chocolate nuggets
- Another delicious creation by Inno foods, these dark chocolate granola nuggets are seriously amazing, and only 4 net carbs per serving.
- These generally run about $9.99 a bag, and they're some of our favorite store bought keto sweet snacks we've ever tried! The ingredients are a little questionable, but if you don't mind that, you're going to love these.
Keto blueberry cinnamon granola
- This nut granola is a really great and quick snack if you have a little bit of a sweet tooth. Put it on top of some yogurt with chocolate chips and fruit and boom, perfect! It's also great as a cereal replacement.
Inno foods coconut granola
- Inno foods is rolling out all kinds of new products, and we love them! This keto coconut granola is quite similar to their coconut clusters, and it's highly delicious.
Keto chocolate bites
- These chocolate bites are perfect for dark chocolate lovers. They are almond, sea salt and coconut flavored, and they come pre-portioned which helps us keep our snacking in check. It's only $8.99 for a bag and there are 30 pieces in a package.
🥜Nuts, Seeds & Nut Butter
Nuts, seeds and nut butter are so expensive at other stores! Especially when you are looking for clean options. Buy in bulk and save, majorly!
Hemp hearts (shelled hemp seeds)
- Hemp hearts have become such a game changer for us. We add them to salads and to our scrambled eggs, and again, trail mix! They are a nutrient dense super food full of fat, protein, and minerals. Read more about the benefits of hemp hearts here. Hemp hearts are great toasted, and are wonderful on this strawberry fields salad, or this keto apple spice 'noatmeal'! A bag of Kirkland Organic hemp hearts is only $10.99 at Costco, which is the best deal we have found so far!
- We love adding pepitas to salads, this Cinnamon trail mix recipe, and more. It's a super food full of potassium and magnesium. You can enjoy them in sweet or savory applications. Get a 23 oz bag for $8.89.
- We're pretty sure this 1.5 pound bag will only run you $19.99, which is such a wonderful deal when it comes to macadamia nuts!
Organic peanut butter
- Peanut butter has long been one of my favorite foods. Good thing Costco offers an organic and no sugar added version to help us keep on track! Two 28-ounce containers cost $9.99.
Organic almond butter
- A little lower in carbs than peanut butter is the organic almond butter! We love this too, and often spruce it up a little bit by adding some sweetener and cinnamon to it for a delicious treat. It's $7.49 for a 27 ounce container.
PB Fit peanut butter powder
- We love adding PB Fit to smoothies, and baked goods, like these low carb dark chocolate nut bars! We love this powdered version for on the go. If you want to use it like a traditional peanut butter, you simply add some water when you're ready to consume it. It's a great solution for busy people. Grab a 30-ounce container at Costco, it will last forever! We will have to check on the current price, since it's been so long since we last bought any.
- A keto staple in our house. $11.99 for 3 lbs of raw almonds is a fantastic deal. We add it to our trail mix (mentioned above) and snack on them.
- Another keto superfood, high in fat. A 3 lb bag costs costs $11.99. Aside from trail mix and salad toppers, try these low carb carrot cake cupcakes.
- Pecans have to be our favorite nut of all time. We absolutely love them, and for $12.99 for 3 lbs, you can make tons of low carb candied pecans to eat on their own, or in these candied pecan chocolate chip cookies or this harvest salad.
🧂Salt & seasonings
Costco has some great bulk spices options. We recommend only buying things you think you can use in 6 months or less, because spices do tend to lose potency after that time period. Here's our top buys.
Pink Himalayan salt
- It's so high in nutrients and will make your food better for you. It's been a while since we last bought some, but we are pretty sure it's $5.99 for 5 pounds.
Ground black pepper
- $4.79 is such a great deal for 12.3 ounces.
Ground Saigon cinnamon
- It's 10.7 ounces for $3.79. (we think).
- We love the smokey flavor of this paprika, and find that it goes well with so many things! It's $3.79 for 8.5 ounces.
- One of our favorite and most used seasonings is $5.99 for 18 ounces.
🍅Canned & jarred food
Organic diced tomatoes
- We love the Kirkland brand organic diced tomatoes. An eight pack of 14.5-ounce cans costs $5.99. Use them in everything!
- You can get two 33-ounce cans for $9.89. We love making this spinach artichoke dip with it!
- We love these fatty, plant-based morsels with some Italian meats and cheeses! Costco offers a bunch of different options, and they are all affordable.
- We eat a TON of pickles in our house, so it makes a lot of sense to buy them in bulk at Costco! Buy some to make our keto and gluten free fried pickles!
- Nothing says Chicago like Giardiniera. It's an Italian style (and Chicago style) condiment of mixed pickled vegetables in oil. If you've ever had a Chicago style Italian beef, you would have needed to try it with this!! Okay, we know this container is huge, but we're obsessed with Giardiniera, and we add it to our burgers, omelettes, hot dogs, you name it!
🥥Oils, Sauces & Condiments
Clean oils are part of a healthy keto diet, and can help you get into ketosis faster so they should be on your list. Buy them at Costco to save money! We've also included some of our favorite ready-made sauces.
- MCT oil is one of those things that is really great for helping some people get into ketosis! You can add it to bulletproof coffee or a smoothie to help kickstart your brain power in the morning. We will have to double check the price the next time we go to Costco, but it's the best deal we've found so far.
- One of our very favorite clean keto oils! We love frying in avocado oil for its neutral taste. Costco used to carry our favorite brand, Chosen Foods, but has since switched. It's still a good deal, and you can get nearly 68 fluid ounces for just under $17 (we think).
Avocado oil spray
- A two pack of these super convenient sprays from our favorite brand, Chosen Foods can be purchased for $5.89. We love to use it to seal our Lodge Cast Iron skillets, and for quick egg dishes, lining baking tins, etc.
Organic extra virgin olive oil
- This is a great deal for some really great quality organic olive oil. We are pretty sure it's $12.99 for 2 liters!
- Another excellent clean keto oil is coconut oil. A 2.48 liter container costs only $13.99.
Organic apple cider vinegar
- $5.99 for three 32-ounce jars for organic apple cider vinegar is an amazing deal! We use it to make all kinds of dressings, like this low carb thousand island or this raspberry basil vinaigrette, or honey lemon vinaigrette dressing!
Rao's Homemade marinara sauce
- Two 28-ounce jars of this delicious sauce will run you $9.99. Use it for an easy weeknight meal, like these Italian sausage stuffed bell peppers.
Sir Kensington's avocado oil mayonnaise
- We love Sir Kensington's! They make so many delicious low carb, sugar free, paleo and Whole 30 friendly sauces and condiments. This avocado oil mayo is tangy and delicious, with super clean ingredients and no added sugar! Awesome! It's $8.99 for a 32 ounce container.
- Never run out of Frank's Red Hot again, and make these buffalo turkey meatballs, or these air fryer buffalo chicken jalapeño poppers on repeat! They also have other hot sauces available, like Cholula.
🍫Baking supplies & sugar free sweeteners
Baking delicious keto and gluten free treats just got a whole lot easier, thanks to Costco. You truly can't find these amazing prices anywhere else, trust us.
- The amount of things we use almond flour for is kind of insane. Yes, it's way more dense than regular flour, but it still somehow works pretty darn well as a replacement. Try these delicious keto apple crumble bars, these low carb savory waffles, or even use them in these lamb meatballs with lemon and feta! We believe it's currently $12.99 for a 3 lb bag.
- Try finding a better price for Lakanto Sweetener anywhere else. Costco carries 1.76 pounds bags of this delicious monk fruit sweetener for $8.99, so stock up!
Rodelle baking cocoa
- Never underestimate the powder of a high quality baking cocoa. This stuff is not your average, run-of-the-mill baking cocoa. This 25 ounce bag costs $5.99. It's Rodelle Dutch Processed Cocoa and this stuff is rich and tastes delicious. Elevate chocolate desserts and dishes with this stuff. Try these death by chocolate pumpkin brownies, or this amazing low carb salted caramel hot cocoa. You won't be disappointed!
Stevia sweetened chocolate chips
- When we saw these sugar-free dark chocolate chips at Costco, we were SHOCKED! We nearly screamed, to be honest. This is such a game-changer for people who bake or have a sweet tooth, you guys. You can now get 2 pounds of dark chocolate sugar-free chips for only $9.79! Although Lily's Sweets are always our top choice, you just cannot beat the price of these chips. Try making our keto pumpkin chocolate chip cookies or these peanut butter chocolate chip cookies with them!
Pure vanilla extract
- As many of you may have noticed, the price of vanilla has skyrocketed over the last few years. In the past we've noticed that Costco had the lowest prices, so buy it in bulk if you plan to do a lot of baking like we do. The last time we bought some, we only paid $19.99!
🥦Keto produce & fermented foods
At this time we aren't giving an extensive list of products that can be found, mostly because the offerings and prices change constantly. We've included our staples when it comes to veggies and fermented food items!
Wild Brine sauerkraut
- One of our favorite sauerkrauts can be found at Costco, Wildbrine! It's perfect for our Reuben Skillet, and just a great thing to eat overall. It's raw and organic. We add it to salads too. Treat your gut right with this fermented goodness, and its $6.99 for 50 ounces.
- Mushrooms are a great deal at Costco. You can get some specialty varieties, or just some organic baby bellas for only $5.49 for 24 ounces! Use them to make these kale and mozzarella stuffed mushrooms, this chunky vegan low carb vegetable soup, or even this chicken bacon mushroom and spinach pasta.
- Blueberries are always a great deal at Costco, as are many of the options for berries. Stock up and make this low carb blueberry smoothie, gin blueberry basil smash, or these keto blueberry muffins.
- Avocados are a great deal at Costco! Don't worry about stocking up. You can always let them ripen at room temperature, and then transfer them to the fridge as soon as they are ripe to keep them from spoiling. Hope that avocado hack helps!
- Kimchi is great for your gut, and we happen to find it to be very, very tasty! Get a 58 ounce container for $7.99, usually.
Earthbound Farm power greens
- Making salads and smoothies just got a lot easier with this Power Greens mix. It's $5.89 for 1.5 lbs and it comes in a resealable bag for easy storing.
Organic frozen cauliflower rice
- These 5-pound bags of riced cauliflower are separated into 1 pound bags which is really convenient and it only costs $7.99. Use this rice in all kinds of dishes, but it's perfect for this low carb jambalaya or these chorizo stuffed poblanos.
Who wants to spend more than you need to on things like Sparkling water, and the occasional low carb friendly drinks? We don't! Here's a list of our favorite drinks You can find at Costco.
Liquor & wine
- Any liquor and wine is a complete steal at Costco! Grab your favorite brands and start mixing, cuz you're not going to find prices this low anywhere else. Try some of our favorite low carb cocktails, like this spiced apple cider spritzer, or red wine whiskey sangria!
Kirkland cold brew
- We're really into these cold brew cans lately! They're perfect for an afternoon pick me up, if you're as reliant on caffeine as we are. For 12 cans that are 11 ounces each, you will pay $13.99.
Sparkling water & La Croix
- The Kirkland brand sparkling water tastes great, and comes at a fraction of the cost of La Croix. But if you're a die hard La Croix fan, Costco is definitely the place to buy it. They often run sales, and they have all kinds of variety packs. But in general, you can find a 36 pack of the Kirkland brand for $8.99, and a 24 pack of La Croix for $6.99.
Kirkland brand sparkling flavored water
- We love the name brand Sparkling Ice, but the Kirkland brand is just as good, and it's $8.99 for a 24 pack of 17-ounce drinks.
- This is definitely a more "dirty" keto or low carb option, but if you want to buy Monster in bulk, you will save a ton of money. We don't know the current price in a Costco warehouse, but we are fairly positive it's under $1.60 a can for 24 16-ounce cans.
Bai Coconut drinks
- These drinks are tasty and a great boost of electrolytes! They are sweetened with erythritol, and you can generally get some kind of variety pack for under $1.50 a unit.
Unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- If you drink a lot of unsweetened almond milk, this is a great deal for you. $6.99 for a 6 pack of 1 quart cartons!
Milkadamia Unsweetened Macadamia Milk
- This is by far our preferred nut milk, although it is a bit more expensive than the almond milk. It's incredibly creamy and tasty. It's $13.99 for six 32-ounce containers.

Yesss Costco is amazing. Have you guys seen Bitchin Sauce at yours? It is SO GOOD. I think it clocks in at 1-2g carbs, 8-9g fat. No sugar and a whole lot of delicious.
We have been meaning to pick some up and try for the list Sarah!! Thank you so much for the reminder. We have heard great things about it!!
Guy Boisse says
We are definitely Costco fan's from Canada, in Florida for the winter . On a Keto diet for year
In Canadian liquor store, we can see the sugar levels or cabs in each wine, is that information available in the USA?
Hey Guy! Thanks for letting us know! We haven't noticed nutrition information readily available at US Costcos.. seems like Canada has a lot of things figured out!! 😉
Thank you for sharing such an amazing information!
Very helpful in starting our keto diet😀Thank you!
So glad to help! Thanks for leaving a comment!
Olga Dytyniak says
Great list but how about a printable 2 page list? That would be great! Thanks
That's a great idea Olga, thanks for the idea! I think we will create one!
We just received a new Costco in our area (60 miles one way, but I’ll take it!) and almost all the Keto items have already been disconnected. Super sad so I emailed the Club Manager and he said there just weren’t enough sales to support the products. Ugh! I saw your Bake Believe chocolate chips and now I may just picket my cause 🤣. It’s not exactly inexpensive to live a ketogenic lifestyle, so the big savings you can snag at Costco or Sam’s is always a huge win. Thanks for your extensive list! Wish they were available in all areas or would at least accept special orders.
Hey Tracy! Man, we're so sorry to hear that your club pulled a lot of the products, such a bummer! Especially since it's a great way to save money while eating a low carb diet. We hope they change their mind soon, these chocolate chips are amazing!!
This is outstanding. Thanks! We live in eastern Europe and are preparing to move back to the States soon (it's been a loooong time) and we're wondering about grocery budget v quality at Costco and then...this post! The meat/seafood stuff is particularly helpful and encouraging.
Thanks again from Kyiv and
Hey there! We're so glad you found it helpful. We're sure you will find tons of great options at Costco when you return to the States. Thanks so much for the kind words! 🙂
I am a huge big fan of you! Your blog is so good – thank you!
Hey Long! Thank you so much for the kind words, we really appreciate it! 🙂
Awesome article! Thank you sharing your knowledge with us. Love your blog so much.
Hey Dustin, thank you so much for the kind words! We hope this list is helpful. 🙂
Chelle Thompson says
Awesome article , I appreciate the work they went into it !
Hey Chelle, Thanks so much for reading! We will have this post updated in the next month or so with a ton of new options, so stay tuned! So glad you find it helpful. 🙂

What your best recommendation for packaged sweetener for coffee/tea? There seems to be a lot of foolishness in labeling.
We believe that Whole Earth Sweetener has a stevia, erythritol and monk fruit blend available at most Costco stores. We personally think it's super delicious, and it's 0 net carbs. It's listed as 2 total carbs per package, but you subtract the erythritol. Hope this helps!
There's no doubt that kale is a great buy at Costco! We just personally haven't picked any up in a while, more of a tastebud preference thing. 🙂 Thanks for reading!
I was surprised to not see kale on you Costco list. I’ve just started on a Keto diet and that was the first item I picked up when I went to Costco Friday to stock up.
Great recommendations but the price for the egg wraps have greatly increased just fyi they are now $9.99 for a single pack
Glad you found this list helpful! Also, thank you for letting us know. Are you in the Chicago area by chance? We will be making a trip to Costco soon. We just want to make sure the prices for our area are accurate.
Thanks for reading!
Hey Sunshine, thanks for the feedback! I know product availability can vary a lot even in the US, so it's interesting to hear about the things you can find in Canadian stores!
This must be U.S. only as I've only seen a few of these items in Canadian stores. The ones I have seen (an bought) have, for the most part, been pretty danged good though.
Sounds like you have this Costco shopping thing down, Ronda! So glad you found the list helpful, thanks for stopping by! 🙂
You basically listed everything I bought yesterday at Costco! Some of the items we don’t have yet though, so hopefully they’re headed to St. Louis soon. Thanks for all the inspiration!
Is it the Franz Bread you're talking about? If so, we have heard that some people have been super lucky to get it in their stores! We are located in Chicago, and we haven't see in it in our stores yet. We are big fans of the Sola Company's bread, and usually order it online or buy it at Meijer stores.
I will definitely add these other items to our list for our next Costco trip coming up this week.
Thanks so much for taking the time to check out our page and thank you again for your comment!

Wanted to get your take on Costco Zero Net Carb bread. I've been buying it and enjoying sandwiches, toast, etc. It's more dense than Aldi's version but tasty. Other additions to your list: Macadamia nuts (huge and a good size) and their huge pack of pre-cooked bacon. I love my bacon extra-crispy so I microwave these an additional 60 - 90 seconds.
