Gluten-Free Costco Food

Looking for gluten-free Costco products to buy? Hi! My name is Tayler Silfverduk and I’m a dietitian who specializes in celiac disease and who’s been living with celiac for over 10 years.

Costco is one of my favorite places to get gluten-free food because of the discounts and bulk quantities offered. In this post, I’ll be sharing with you what’s gluten-free at the Costco Food Court and what gluten-free foods are available to buy in the store.

As always, assess suitability and safety for yourself. This is based on my professional opinion on what’s generally celiac-safe, but this often varies by individual. Additionally, ingredients and availability are subject to change.

What is Gluten

When talking about gluten-free Costco products, it’s important we know what gluten is. Gluten is a protein found in barley, rye, contaminated oats, and wheat. It may be helpful to remember the acronym “BROW” when trying to remember what foods have gluten.

In baked goods, gluten holds things together working as a binding agent. It gives texture and chew to foods.

Most people can safely eat gluten. However, some people have gluten sensitivity or celiac disease which means they need to avoid gluten. It can cause digestive issues such as diarrhea and nausea as well as nonintestinal symptoms such as rashes, headaches, or joint pain.

What is Costco?

We also need to know what Costco is when talking about what’s gluten-free at Costco. Costco is a membership-based retailer that sells products often in bulk or large quantities. It started as a business-only membership store in the 1970s but expanded to selling to people in the 1980s.

Known for having great deals on large quantities of food for families, they also sell electronics, toys, furniture, clothing, and more. Membership ranges from $60 to $120/year.

For people who are gluten-free, the many deals on bulk gluten-free foods that Costco offers are a great selling point. Especially when those living gluten-free often are facing food costs that are 183% greater than gluten-filled foods according to research.

Should you eat samples at Costco if you need to be gluten-free? Celiac Dietitian, Tayler Silfverduk helps you weigh the risks.

Can You Eat Costco Samples if You’re Gluten-Free?

If you’re shopping for gluten-free Costco foods, can you eat the samples served at Costco? While Costco is well-known for its great deals, it’s also known for serving samples to guests during your trip.

Anecdotally, I’ve gotten many messages from people on social media asking me if they can eat the samples at Costco. I’ve also gotten messages from people expressing regret for eating samples at Costco and not feeling well after.

As a dietitian who specializes in celiac and has been living with celiac for over 10 years, I personally think enjoying Costco samples is fairly risky. In my experience, sample stations are swarmed with people and it can be difficult to have the time and mental clarity to assess the risk.

Risks include: having enough time to read the label to assess the gluten-free status of the food, wanting to or even asking the staff if they’ve touched anything else, if they’ve worked any other stations that day, etc.

This isn’t to say that enjoying gluten-free samples is impossible at Costco, but it can be challenging. And when grocery shopping already often feels overwhelming for people with celiac, I would be hesitant to add on the burden of assessing the safety of samples out on the floor.

However, you know your mental battery and needs best. Just because I think it’s risky, doesn’t mean it’s impossible or that you shouldn’t do it. This is just my opinion. You can take it or leave it.

What's gluten-free at the Costco Food Course? Red is not gluten-free, green should be gluten-free.

Gluten-Free Food at the Costco Food Court

Eating gluten-free Costco food course food would be a medium to high risk dining situation. I’ll share some of the gluten-free options I’ve found at my Costco below but please assess suitability and risk for yourself.

First, here are the things you definitely want to avoid:

  • All Beef Hot Dog with the Bun
  • Chicken Bake
  • Slice of Pizza
  • Whole Pizza
  • Hot Turkey and Provolone Sandwich
  • BBQ Beef Brisket Sandwich
  • Chicken Caesar Salad
  • Ice Cream Served in a Waffle Cone
  • Twisted Churro

Here’s what should be gluten-free at the Costco Food Court:

  • All Beef Hot Dog WITHOUT the bun
  • 20-oz Soda
  • Berry Smoothie
  • Latte/Mocha Freeze
  • Very Berry Sundae
  • Nonfat Yogurt
  • Hand-Dipped Ice Cream Bar

This gluten-free list of Costco Food Court Food does not include cross-contact precautions you’d need to ask for if you have celiac. Evaluate cross-contact risk and necessary cross-contact precautions for yourself. If you need help with this, this is a skill I help you develop in my Gluten-Free Dining Course. Learn more here.

Additionally, the ingredients and gluten-free status of these items are subject to change. When I’ve gone, the staff had no issues with helping me with my questions. However staff, location, time of day, business, and food supply can all play a role in risk level and safety.

Gluten-Free Costco Food

Now let’s talk gluten-free Costco food! There are lots of gluten-free food options at Costco. From gluten-free snacks, baking mixes, bread, frozen meals, and more.

In this Gluten-Free Costco Product Guide, I’ll not be listing obviously gluten-free products like canned fruits, vegetables, oils, and single-ingredient spices. Instead, I’ll be trying to list gluten-free options that are more unique or are versions of foods that aren’t always gluten-free.

That said, please keep in mind the following: this is not a comprehensive list. Just because something is not listed, doesn’t mean it’s not safe, it just means I didn’t check it or it didn’t make it onto my list. If you need help with evaluating the safety of food labels in the USA, check out this free class here!

Lastly, these are generally gluten-free options below however, ingredients and availability are subject to change. Always check and evaluate the suitability and safety of products for yourself. And again, if you’re not sure how to do this, I clarify how to do this in the USA in just FOUR simple steps in my free gluten-free label-reading class. check out this free class here!

Gluten-Free Candy at Costco - Celiac Dietitian - Tayler Silfverduk

Gluten-Free Candy at Costco

Gluten-free Costco candy availability changes by the season. During the holiday season there may be more options than at other times, below are some options that are usually there.

Please note: yes, people who eat gluten-free can enjoy candy. Desserts are an important part of the satisfaction and enjoyment of any diet.

Gluten-Free Snacks at Costco

There are many gluten-free Costco snacks to choose from. I found something like over 50 snacks. Below I’ll organize them by type and I’ll be giving some tips for them.

Gluten-Free Chips & Popcorn

Below are gluten-free Costco chips and popcorn that you can buy. Both chips and popcorn can be a part of a gluten-free balanced diet. They often are great for addressing salty and crunch cravings. And they make fun and yummy additions to packed lunches and snacks.

  • Pirate’s Booty Aged White Cheddar Snack – cheesy popcorn is always a fun welcomed snack. Great for if you want to keep savory flavorful popcorn on hand.
  • SkinnyPop Popcorn – another gluten-free single-serve popcorn option. Easy to throw into packed lunches for you or your kids.
  • Kirkland Signature Microwave Popcorn – says gluten-free right on the front, if you’re looking for movie theater butter microwave popcorn, this is a great option.
  • Frito Lay Oven Baked Mix – has a gluten-free claim right on the front of the box. If you’re looking for chips to travel with, these are an option. I’m think walking nachos…
  • Popcornopolis Zebra Popcorn – a certified gluten-free popcorn snack featuring chocolate striped caramel corn. Perfect for movie night or for packing along for trips to the fair? If you want fun flavors in single-serve bags, this brand also has a 30-pack of snack-sized popcorn bags available at Costco too.

There are likely other gluten-free chip and popcorn options but these are the ones I highlighted. Be sure to assess suitability and safety for yourself.

Gluten-Free Costco Bars and Snacks - Celiac Dietitian - Tayler Silfverduk

Gluten-Free Bars and Clusters

Costco Gluten-Free snack bars and clusters can be great for building quick meals or enjoying a quick satisfying snack while on the go. From protein bars to general snack bars, below are some of the options at Costco.

Please note: some of the above options do have oats and may not be suitable for those who are sensitive to oats or who need purity protocol oats. As always, assess the safety of products for yourself.

GF Crackers, Nuts, and Seeds

Costco Gluten-Free crackers, nuts, and seeds can be great for balancing out quick meals and snacks. Below are some of the options at Costco.

  • Wonderful Pistachios, Salt & Pepper – these are one of my favorite gluten-free ADHD-friendly snacks for my ADHDers who need something crunchy and salty. Especially if you’re snacking for stimulation, these are fun to separate the nut out of the shell. You can also get just salted pistachios from Costco too.
  • Nature’s Garden Omega-3 Deluxe Mix – these appear to be gluten-free by ingredient but I couldn’t find a gluten-free claim on the bag. The ingredients are “cranberries (sugar, sunflower oil), walnuts, raw pepitas, almonds (roasted in peanut or canola oil), pecans, and raw pistachios”. With 4g protein, 12g fat, 14g carbs, 2g of fiber and as a source of omega-3s, this could be a great addition to a snack. 
  • Gourmet Nut Power Up Trail Mix, Variety Pack – with high energy, omega, and antioxidant-focused varieties, these trail mixes have a gluten-free claim right on the front of the bag.
  • Skippy Creamy Peanut Butter Squeeze Packets – peanut butter packets are great to carry around with you to snack on or to add to fruits and vegetables to boost protein and fat. 
  • Crunchmaster Multi-Grain Crackers – These certified gluten-free crackers are made with 6 seeds and provide 2g of fiber a serving. I’d pair these with some nut butter, cheese, and fruit for a filling and satisfying gluten-free snack.
  • Sonoma Creamery Pepper Jack Crisps – these cheese-based crackers are crunchy and made with real cheese. A source of fat and protein, these are delicious and balanced when paired with fruit and vegetables. They are also certified gluten-free.
  • Simple Mills Almond Flour Crackers – My favorite cracker. I couldn’t find an online listing of these on the Costco website but I have found them at my Costco for the past few months. They are super yummy.

Please note: many nut and seed packages often contain an allergen advisory that says “may contain”, “made on the same equipment as” or “made in the same facility as” wheat. These are NOT the same as allergen statements which are required to declare if a product “contains” an allergen like wheat.

These sound scary but may not be as scary as we once thought. For more on this, check out my totally free USA label-reading class where I break the research down on this topic to help you feel safer and more comfortable shopping.

GF Fruit-Themed Costco Snacks

Moving on from nuts, seeds, and cracker options when shopping for gluten-free food at Costco. Let’s now talk about fruit-based snack options often available at this retailer!

  • Kirkland Signature Organic Applesauce – These are apple sauce packets that are really easy to grab and go with. Many people like to give them to kids, but I enjoy them as an adult. They make it easy to enjoy fruit while on the go plus they have 2g of fiber.
  • Kirkland Signature Organic Fruit and Vegetable Pouches – Another great way to boost vegetable and fruit intake while on the go. These pouches of fruit and vegetables are gluten-free by ingredient and also offer 2g of fiber.
  • Pure Organic Layered Fruit Bars, Variety Pack – These certified gluten-free fruit bars are another way to add fruits to snacks or on-the-go meals. Unfortunately, they do not offer much fiber like the fruit pouches above.
  • Paradise Green Dried Ginger Chunks – These dried ginger chunks have a gluten-free claim on the front of the bag. They are perfect to add to trail mixes or to enjoy when your stomach is upset as ginger can help soothe bloating. Be careful though, too much ginger might be a GI irritant or trigger reflux. 
  • Nutty & Fruity Chili Mango – this fruit snack found at Costco did not have a gluten-free claim I could find but was gluten-free by ingredient. (Dried Mango (Mango, Cane Sugar, Citric Acid, Sulfur Dioxide), Mixed Spices (Cane Sugar Chamoy Powder, Paprika, Chili Pepper, Salt, Cayenne). A fun twist on a typically sweet snack.
  • Nutty & Fruity Dried Tangerine Wedges – naturally gluten-free and delicious, these are another fun dried fruit to add to your pantry. 
  • Paradise Green Premium Dried Mango Slices – gluten-free by ingredient, these dried mangos are great to have on hand to add fruit to snacks and meals.
  • Cherry Bay Orchards No-Added-Sugar Dried Montmorency Cherries – I love adding dried cherries to my morning hot cereal and gluten-free granola. These are also delicious in trail mixers too.
  • Sunny Fruit Organic Sun-Dried Figs – with 5g of fiber, 80mg calcium, and 1mg of iron per serving, figs are a great addition to any snack.

My favorite way to enjoy this kind of fruit-based snacks is with a source of protein and fat. This might look like enjoying them with roasted beans, gluten-free cheese, nuts and seeds, or gluten-free beef jerky…

Gluten-Free Costco Beef Jerky - What to Buy When You Have Celiac at Costco - celiac dietitian(

GF Beef Jerky at Costco

This brings me to the last gluten-free Costco snack we’ll be talking about in this post, beef jerky. It’s important to note that meat alone is gluten-free, but can be made not gluten-free via seasoning and flavorings.

In the case of beef jerky, meat often has soy sauce made with wheat added to it. Additionally, natural flavors, yeast extract, and smoke flavor can all be added which don’t always but can contain gluten.

Keeping this in mind, below are some of the gluten-free beef jerky options available at Costco.

  • Kirkland Signature Premium Extra Thick Steak Strips – this jerky has two suspicious ingredients, yeast extract, and smoke flavor. However, the gluten-free claim seen on the front of the bag means these ingredients must be gluten-free and safe. At 9g of protein and 0.5g of fat, this is a great food to add to snacks to boost protein.
  • Golden Island Korean Barbecue Pork Jerky – made with gluten-free soy sauce and featuring a gluten-free claim on the front of the package, this is a fun jerky to have on hand. 1 serving has 8g of protein and 10g of carbs. Add a handful of nuts and this can be a balanced snack.
  • Pacific Gold Original Beef Jerky – has a suspect ingredient, smoke flavor, in it but has a gluten-free claim on the front so it’s gluten-free. With 10g of carbs and 13g of protein, it’s another fun jerky option.
  • Kirkland Signature Turkey Jerky – has a gluten-free claim right on the front and uses gluten-free soy sauce in it. It also has some suspicious ingredients like natural flavors and smoke flavors but we don’t need to worry about them due to the gluten-free claim on the bag. Has 10g of protein and 8g of carbs and 1g of fat.
  • Think Jerky Grass Fed Beef Sticks – beef sticks are one of my favorite things to travel around with because they are delicious and portable. All the ingredients of this beef stick are gluten-free (100% Grass-Fed Beef, Sea Salt, Encapsulated Lactic Acid, Spices, Cultured Celery Powder, Granulated Garlic, Granulated Onion, Stuffed in a Beef Collagen Casing) however, I could not find a gluten-free claim anywhere. That said, remember, things don’t need a gluten-free claim to be safe. Has 8g of protein, 1g of carbs, and 5g of fat.

Now I know it might sound scary to hear that some of the gluten-free options contain suspect ingredients. If you’re feeling uneasy about any of these options, please check out my free label-reading class. I think you’ll find much assurance in buying these options after watching this class and being fully informed on gluten-free food labeling in the USA.

Gluten-Free Pantry Items

Below are some gluten-free shelf-sable options you can buy when looking for gluten-free Costco products. I’ve organized them into GF bread, baking, and packaged/prepared foods.

I did not include obviously gluten-free options like canned vegetables, fruits, coffee, etc. These items are generally easy to find gluten-free and aren’t that confusing.

However, if you’re not sure how to check food labels for gluten, I clarify how to do this in the USA in just FOUR simple steps in my free gluten-free label-reading class. Check it out here!

Gluten-Free Bread at Costco

I could not find any gluten-free bread listed on the Costco website but when visiting my local Costco I found BFree Pita Bread and Canyon Bakehouse Gluten-Free Multigrain bread.

So if you’re looking for gluten-free bread to enjoy, these are two options. Usually, Costco changes out these options on occasion. This is the first time I’ve personally seen gluten-free pita bread in a store near me which was pretty exciting!

Gluten-Free Baking at Costco

Next up are gluten-free Costco baking items. Note: this does not include generally gluten-free items like sugar, butter, eggs, single-ingredient spices, and more. Below are the gluten-free baking items I regularly can find at my Costco. 

Note that baking items can vary in risk because they are dry goods. Assess the risk and suitability for yourself but generally, if something appears gluten-free in the USA, it is gluten-free.

Gluten-Free Shelf-Stable Meals to buy at Costco - Celiac Dietitian - Tayler Silfverduk

Packaged and Prepared Food

Looking for gluten-free Costco shelf-stable meal options? I’ve got some items you can keep in your pantry for months on end for those moments when you forgot to grocery shop and need a meal!

  • Seeds of Change Organic Quinoa and Brown Rice – One of the biggest struggles I see with living gluten-free is the challenges people face with getting in enough gluten-free whole grains. These often take longer to cook and people aren’t as familiar with them. This doesn’t have a gluten-free claim but the ingredients are all gluten-free by nature. If you’re looking for a quick gluten-free whole-grain option to add to dinner, this is it.
  • Ritikas Organic Cilantro + Lime Rice – Another option that I couldn’t find available on the Costco website but I do find often in my local Costco is Ritikas Organic Cilantro + Lime Rice which is gluten-free. It’s a great microwave rice option when you need a quick side at dinner.
  • Idahoan Real Premium Mashed Potatoes – these gluten-free mashed potatoes are another great starch to have on hand to add to dinners in a pinch. This is my partner’s favorite side dish to make when he’s on dinner duty.
  • Snapdragon Vietnamese Pho Bowls – Made with gluten-free soy sauce, these pho bowls have a gluten-free claim right on the front. Add a protein source and vegetable to this and you’ve got a quick and easy balanced meal. (I’m thinking edamame with avocado – yum).
  • Bob’s Red Mill Oatmeal Cups – If you can tolerate oats, these are gluten-free oatmeal cups that are perfect to pack when traveling or to grab when on the go. Top with nuts, seeds, and peanut butter, and serve with a side of fruit to make it a balanced meal! (If you’re going for shelf-stable, maybe do a Jiffy Peanut Butter Packet and Apple Sauce Pouch from the snack section of this post?)
  • Tasty Bite Madras Lentils Packets – They’ve got a gluten-free claim and are gluten-free by ingredient. These are great shelf-stable meal options to keep on hand. Pair it with the microwaveable quinoa and brown rice above and you’ve got a protein and whole-grain packed meal!
  • Lorna Linda Sweet Potato Harvest Bowls – full disclosure I did not like these when I tried them, but they are an option for people looking for shelf-stable meal options to keep on hand. They’ve got 12g of protein, are gluten-free, and have veggies and GF whole grains in them. I could not find them on the Costco website but I’ve seen them in my Costco since the fall 2022.

There may be more options but again, these are the ones I could either find online or at my local Costco.

Gluten-Free Costco Fridge & Freezer Options

Last on our list of gluten-free Costco finds are fridge and freezer options. Like with every category, I’m listing things that are confusing or not always gluten-free down below. But just because something isn’t listed, doesn’t mean it’s not safe.

I’ve organized the options into 4 categories: meats, dairy, freezer meals, and misc items.

Gluten-Free Costco Meats to Buy - Celiac Dietitian - Tayler Silfverduk

Gluten-Free Meats at Costco

First things first, meats are often a confusing topic, so here are gluten-free Costco meat options found in the refrigerator sections.

  • Hillshire Farm Slow Roasted Turkey Breast – this says gluten-free right on the front and is a great protein option to use in sandwiches for meals or to enjoy as a snack on gluten-free crackers or wrapped around baby carrots (which is my favorite way to enjoy lunch meat).  
  • Columbus Italian Dry Salame, Sliced – Salame is my favorite kind of lunch meat. I love enjoying it with baby carrots and broccoli. It’s also great to add to sandwiches for a boost of flavor and a source of protein and fat.
  • Kirkland Signature Beef Hot Dogs, Beef Polish Sausage, and Beef Dinner Franks – are all gluten-free hot dog options you can buy at Costco. Serve them on gluten-free hot dog buns or rolls and enjoy. 
  • Hebrew National 100% Kosher Beef Franks – another gluten-free hot dog option available at Costco.
  • Columbus Uncured Turkey Bacon – Another gluten-free protein option, it’s got 6g of protein and 2g of fat for every slice. I love enjoying these with eggs, GF toast, and sliced tomatoes. Yum.
  • Three Bridges Bacon & Cheese Egg Bites – a great quick breakfast option, these egg bites have 25g of fat and 20g of protein per package. I’d pair these with a slice or two of turkey bacon and maybe a side of gluten-free toast and fruit to try to balance it out.
  • Sous-Vide Egg Bites – Turkey Sausage & Cheese – I could not find these on the Costco website but I often see them in my Costco. They’ve got a gluten-free claim right on the front and are another quick morning protein and fat option. 
  • WestEnd Cuisine Grilled Chicken Skewers – These have been game changers in my house. They’ve got a gluten-free claim that’s easy to miss in the top right corner of the package. And they are SUCH a quick protein option to heat up for dinner. And the texture and flavor are soooooo good. 
  • Kirkland Signature Hickory Smoked Pulled Pork – Ingredients are pork, water, salt, spice extract, and sodium nitrite which are all gluten-free. They also have a gluten-free claim on them making them safe. Another quick protein and fat option for meals when you need something quick.

Meats can sometimes have gluten added to them. For the most part, many of the meats at Costco are gluten-free but always check the label.

GF Dairy Options at Costco

Below are gluten-free Costo cheese and dairy options. Keep in mind that lactose intolerance with celiac is common. I’ll try to make note of the lower-lactose options below.

Also, remember, lactose intolerance doesn’t mean you have to avoid dairy but that you have to manage lactose consumption. You can do this by using low-lactose dairy products or taking lactase enzymes (which help break down lactose so you don’t react).

There are quite a lot more gluten-free dairy options at Costco with varying amounts of lactose in them. Assess suitability for yourself.

Gluten-Free Frozen Meals at Costco - Celiac Dietitian

Gluten-Free Freezer Meals at Costco

Looking for Gluten-free Costco freezer meal options? Look no further than this post. The freezer section is my best friend at Costco because it makes my life so much easier.

Often, in the gluten-free world, there’s a lot of pressure to eat unprocessed foods, but there are many pre-made options that can be included in a gluten-free balanced diet that makes life so much easier. 

  • Kirkland Signature Cauliflower Crust Pizza, Supreme – I’ve not tried this but my mom says it’s good. If you’re a cauliflower crust fan, definitely try this GFCO certified gluten-free pizza.
  • Milton’s Cauliflower Crust Pizza, Roasted Vegetable – another GFCO gluten-free certified option, you could serve this with a side salad or steamed vegetables to get a quick gluten-free dinner on the table. 
  • Frontera Chicken Fajita Bowl, Medium – a single-serve meal option, this bowl does not have a gluten-free claim that I could find but it is gluten-free by ingredient. I’d eat it with some gluten-free Schar toast for more fiber, and maybe a side of fruit or veggies. 
  • Ore-Ida Golden Tater Tots – these have a gluten-free claim right on the front and are a fun starch to enjoy on the side of different dinners. I even love to make a gluten-free Tater Tot Casserole with them.
  • Red’s Egg’Wich Turkey Sausage – I couldn’t find it on the Costco website, but my Costco almost always has Red’s Egg’Wiches which are gluten-free and are great for a quick protein and fat option for breakfast on the go.
  • Egg Land’s Best 3 Cheese Omelets – Another option I couldn’t find on the Costco website but see in my local store, I usually can find some kind of frozen omelet that’s usually gluten-free by ingredients. Which is great for quick eggs in the morning. 
  • Veggies Made Great Cinnamon Roll Muffins – Another option I can usually always find in my local Costco is a Veggies Made Great Muffin, this a fun way to add on-the-go vegetables into your morning. These are almost always marked gluten-free. 
  • Maverick Foods Chipotle Chicken and Rice Bowl – I found this at my Costco the last time I went and it was gluten-free by ingredient. Another freezer meal to potentially keep on hand for when you need a quick meal.
  • Real Good Chicken Grande Enchiladas with Tomatillo Sauce – lastly, I can almost always find a Real Good Food frozen meal. The last time I went, I found the Grande Enchiladas with Tomatillo Sauce. 

The frozen meal options have varying ranges of macronutrients that likely will need balanced with additional side dishes in order to be filling and satisfying. If you need help learning how to balance your gluten-free diet for macronutrients, vitamins, and minerals required for healing and healing with celiac, check out my dietitian-led Celiac Nutrition Course here.

GF Condiments, Dips, Soups Etc. at Costco

Other gluten-free Costco products I often see and buy include:

  • OH SNAP! Pickling Co. Dilly Bites – I’m a sucker for anything pickles and these are such fun on-the-go snacking options. 
  • Wholly Guacamole Classic Guacamole Mini Cup – I always by the gluten-free guacamole and hummus packets to dip my gluten-free corn chips or vegetables in. It’s also great to make hummus or avocado toast quickly too.
  • Ivar’s Zesty Tomato Parmesan Soup – Another option often available is gluten-free refrigerated soups like this one. Most brands have gluten-free and not gluten-free options but it’s great to keep on hand for quick meals and side dishes too.

GF Costco Must-Haves Shared by the Celiac Community

I shared some of my gluten-free Costco finds in this post but I also asked my 45k+ Instagram followers to share with me their favorite gluten-free products to buy at Costco! Here’s what they said:

  • Many people said they buy gluten-free pasta at Costco. Banza was the most common brand noted and many people said it was sold for a good price. I’ve also seen Lotus Foods gluten-free ramen at Costco too, if you’re interested.
  • I got a lot of comments from people saying they loved buying the Simple Mills Gluten-free Crackers here. I agree, these crackers are delicious and at a great price comparatively.
  • Siete Almond Flour Tortillas were another commonly purchased item. I’ve seen them a few times at my Costcos, great if you are looking for corn-free tortilla options.
  • Brazi Bites were strongly recommended. I don’t blame them, these cheesy bites are delicious but I haven’t seen them at my Costco yet.
  • The Snapdragon Vietnamese Pho Bowls were strongly recommended. These are from our shelf-stable prepared meal section. They are reported to be delicious.
  • Single serve cheeses to add to snacks.
  • Rojo Street Corn Dip – which is absolutely delicious and I also recommend it if you can find it.
  • Kirkland Pesto which many people reported using on the GF pasta they also bought from Costco.

I have to say… my followers have good taste.


As someone who’s been living with celiac for over 10 years, I am so pleased to see such a high amount of gluten-free Costco options available today. Over 10 years ago, it was hard to find gluten-free food in stores near me so this is such a humbling reminder of how far we have come.

And even with as far as we’ve come, living gluten-free can be challenging. I hope that this guide on gluten-free Costco food court options and grocery options was helpful in helping you manage the chaos of gluten-free living.

And don’t forget, if you need help with knowing how to identify gluten on a food label, I teach you this skill FOR FREE in my Label-Reading Class. Watch it here.
