Gluten Free Finds at Costco (Part 1)

Updated 3/13/13- Part 2 click HERE
Updated 8/1/13- Part 3 click HERE

We made our routine Costco trip last Saturday to pick up a few items that I can't live without during the week, mainly their fresh fruit, vegetables and 12 pack of FAGE Greek Yogurt. As we made our way to the frozen food and bulk dry product isles I was shocked to see so many products labeled Gluten Free. In the past I have also posted other gluten free product finds at Costco, Del Real Rice and Beans and Del Real Pork Tamales.

All of the below items were found at the Costco in San Marcos, CA. Even though all Costco locations do not carry the same products, it is great to see that Costco understands the importance and NEED to carry nutrient specific products. If there is a Costco Warehouse in your area, I strongly recommend filling out a "Product Request form" if one of the below items is not at your local store. I am curious to hear what gluten free items other Costco locations carry across the US...please share!

Please note even though a product is labeled gluten free on the front I still recommend reading the entire list of ingredients to be 100% certain there are no hidden traces of gluten.

Full Circle Italian Stuffed Red Peppers $4.99/lb.
Morton's of Omaha Steakhouse Classic Tri-Tip $6.39/lb.

  4. I've purchased "Mrs. May's naturals" brand Trio snack bars at Costco before. "Trio" because they're made of nuts, seeds and fruits. Gluten-free, vegan, kosher; no trans-fat, additives, preservatives, cholesterol, dairy, GMO or wheat. And, they are yummy!

  5. SO, does the Kirkland Brand of Bacon have Gluten in it? It does not say Gluten free, and I thought it was Hormel and last night we had it and my celiac son get very sick. Trying to figure it out and not sure? Help?

    1. I have only tried the Maple Leaf Center Cut Bacon, Ingredients-
      PORK, WATER, SALT, SUGAR, SODIUM PHOSPHATE, DEXTROSE, SODIUM ERYTHORBATE, SODIUM NITRITE, SMOKE.

      I contacted Costco and they confirmed that their Kirkland brand bacon is gluten free. They did not state if it was Hormel. On the package it states- Cured with: water, salt, sodium phosphate, sodium erythorbate, sodium nitrite.

      I would suggest to try the maple leaf brand, as I have experienced no symptoms. I hope this helps,

  6. Does anyone know if the Costco Rice Cracker Snack Mix w/peanuts is Gluten Free? I'm in a hurry & do not have time to thoroughly investigate right now.

    1. No, the Kirkland Rice Cracker with Nut Snack mix is NOT gluten free. The rice crackers have soy sauce on them. STAY AWAY :) Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Lucky you! The San Diego/Arizona area carries a lot more GF products than Orange County. I was told that Costco test markets in this area. I may have to drive south to shop.

  10. I am heading to Costco with this list and the part 2 list. They are still trying to diagnose if I have a gluten intolerance along with my food allergies, IBS, and lactose intolerance. Since I'm not scheduled to be tested until June, I thought I might as well try to be gluten free and see if it helps

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I wish you a speedy diagnosis so you may start to feel more like yourself. From my experience even though my doctor at the time was able to confirm I was allergic to gluten within a few weeks, it took me several months to start feeling better. It was tough learning what I could and couldn't have, but that was 6 years ago and luckily so many places/companies cater to the gluten free diet now. Your options for some things are endless, I wish you the best and please always feel free to ask me any questions. :)

  11. Costco had some FABULOUS gluten free cookies just a few months back and have already discontinued them before people even had time to find them.

    that even had three big packs in a box for a very reasonable price.
    They were delicious-- even if they had not been also GF cookies!
    The box says DrLucy.com chocolate chip

    You could put them in the oven or microwave and even melt the chips a bit, deelish!
    Gluten free no peanuts, tree nuts Then I returned to Costco to buy more for a party and they had been discontinued. : ( ??????
    0 mg cholesterol
    0g trans fat

    However they have discontinued them.

    1. Which Costco do you go to?!?!?! I have never seen Dr. Lucy's cookies at mine. Those are so good! I am going to leave a comment for them to start carrying them!

      Thanks for sharing!

  12. I'm trying to determine if the Kirkland Signature Honey Smoked Boneless Ham Steak is gluten free. It comes in a package with three large slices. #42066. My wife is concerned about the "smoked flavorings".
    Thanks,
    Mike

  13. Grocery Outlet has a trove of gluten free products. I boughts Udi's bread for $2.99. It was not expired. I think they buy overstock. I buy greek yogurt there. Greek Gods, oikos, chobani.. 2 or 3 for a dollar! They don't have these items in stock regularly though but I always find new things to try that would normally cost dollars more at Whole Foods.
