Gluten-Free Costco Shopping Guide

I started this blog in 2013 to help those who need to be gluten-free.  Please check out my family-friendly recipes and gluten-free desserts if you have time. I would also invite you to comment with the gluten free foods you found at Costco. There are tons of readers who have written and shared what they found in their own local Costco store.

I am lucky to have three Costco stores in my area. We have two in San Jose and one in Santa Clara nearby.

Usually, they have the same foods, but every now and then things are a little different. These finds today are from the Coleman Costco in San Jose. It is just minutes from the San Jose Airport. I like this location best because it is never crazy busy like the other Costco stores. (Well, except over the holidays, then no Costco is easy!)

It seems like more and more people are shopping at Costco to save money. Gluten free food is expensive so I am always on the hunt to find new ways to save money on gluten-free groceries. Buying in bulk at Costco can help you reduce your grocery costs quite a bit. Costco has gluten free foods all over the store! And even better, they are always bringing in new and tasty foods to try.

If you are looking for your local Costco, here is a store locator!

Gluten-Free Costco

Groceries are expensive and gluten-free products tend to cost more than other grocery items. Our family loves to save money buying in bulk at Costco and fortunately, Costco has a great selection of gluten-free products for us to choose from.

Products will vary from store to store (even within the same city) and below are the gluten-free products available in our area that could be available in yours too.

If you spy something gluten-free at your Costco, please leave a comment and let us all know.

Gluten Free Pastas

I have some tips on preparing gluten-free pasta and recipes that you can read here, Gluten-Free Pasta Recipes.

Go Go Quinoa Organic Macaroni Pasta…I didn’t pick this gluten free pasta up. I am wondering if this gluten free pasta will stay a la dente. Has anyone tried this new Costco pasta?

Gluten-Free Costco Shopping Guide image

Edamame Spaghetti. I have a sample of this, but I have yet to try it. (Update, we finally tried this pasta. It is easy to over-cook this pasta so pull it out of the boiling water a little earlier than you would normally.)

Hodo Soy Spicy Yuba Noodles

The people that invented Made Good Granola Bites is just genius. This product has tons of veggies in it, and they taste like cookies. Your kids will have no idea these are healthy!!

Gluten-Free Costco Shopping Guide image

The Perfect Bar. These are by far our family’s favorite gluten-free protein bars. (They have to be refrigerated because they have egg white protein.) They come in Peanut Butter, Almond Butter, and a fun Cranberry Rice Puffy Crisp. Still here in 2017!!

Gluten-Free Costco Shopping Guide image

Gluten Free Chex Granola Mix. Our Costco had this for a few months, then it was gone. It was fun to sprinkle in yogurt. This is no longer at our Costco as of February 2017.

Hodo Soy Tofu Veggie Burgers

Hodo Soy also makes a gluten-free tofu burger. Most meatless burgers have wheat so these are a great option if you want to have a vegetarian option.

If you want an option that isn’t vegetarian, click here to try my Grilled Lamb with Leeks and Fennel recipe.

Sukhi’s Curry Meals. I haven’t tried these prepared meals, but we have tried several of their jarred Indian sauces by the same company. My kids prefer the mild flavors so I don’t buy the spicier sauces often. My Costco still carries these as of February 2017.

Gluten-Free Costco Shopping Guide image

Stuffed Chicken by Vicky’s Kitchen. I haven’t tried this but it is certified gluten free. Fill in a comment below if you have tried these so other readers will know if these are worth purchasing! I didn’t see this one last week. Did you try it?

Nature Raised Grilled Gluten Free Chicken Strips. These are really good and I find they are perfect for dinner in a hurry by making chicken tacos out of them. I loved these but unfortunately, our Costco sold out of these quickly :-(.

Does anyone’s local Costco have these still? I so miss these convenient chicken strips!

Harry’s Organic Tapioca Pudding

Harry’s Organic Tapioca Pudding is a nice snack or dessert.

I am typically a sucker for tapioca pudding, but my family enjoys my Caramel Tapioca Pudding recipe over store bought, so there is no desire to buy this 🙂

Comments

  1. I’m curious about maple syrup and organic cane sugar, vanilla and other kirkland brand one ingredient items. I have silent celiac so I wouldn’t know if I was getting glutened. Do you feel that these items are safe? Thank you

    • I have to think they are okay, especially if they are organic. I think the company is highly responsive so perhaps calling to ask about their specific products would help get you the information you need. Take care, Sandi

  2. Edamame Spaghetti is awesome!!! So far I’ve had it with pesto and even my 6 year old loved it.

  3. Laurie Owens says:

    Do you happen to know if the kirkland signature brand 1/3lb sirloin patties are gluten free?

    • Hi Laurie, Thanks for your email. I tried to google this information and I can’t find a definitive answer for you. I buy their organic ground beef all fo the time, but I haven’t tried their Kirkland brand.

  4. Christine Svehla says:

    I am looking for gluten free fish burgers. Can be any kind of fish. Do you know if Cosco has any?

  5. I have been glutened so many times at Sam’s I am going to join Cosco next month. It’s 10 min further each way but I need to do this. I am hoping the raw nuts and also various dried fruits that are naturally GF are not processed on equipment that process wheat, rye or barley. I’m not one for processed foods, so I need frozen fruits, veges, etc that I can count on to be safe.

    • I am so sorry to hear that Bebe. I have never been to a Sam’s, but it doesn’t sound good if you got glutened 🙁

    • Meredith Griffith says:

      Unfortunately, the Costco pecans and almonds I just bought this week carry the warning that they were processed on equipment with wheat. This is a pretty rough blow for our family, as their prices on nuts are amazing and make almond meal baking possible. No more Costco nuts, I guess. 🙁

  6. Does Costco have gluten free pies for Thanksgiving?

  7. Mary Anne Curry says:

    How about gluten free birthday cakes?

    • Hi Mary. Unfortunately, I have yet to see any gluten free cakes at Costco. Honestly, given how they use their commercial kitchens, I don’t think they would be able to manage cross contamination to keep you safe. I do plan to head to Costco later this week and I will do a double check to see if they have any gluten free cake mixes on hand and report back.

  8. Does anyone know the brand of the GF pasta that Costco carried? They were rigatoni shape and have stopped carrying it.

    • Hi Rebecca, I am hoping someone will respond. I know our Costco currently has gluten free rice noodles (Asian style), and a lentil based gluten free pasta. I didn’t buy the lentil based one again as my kids knew right away it was healthy and wouldn’t touch it. Take care, Sandi

  9. Does anyone know if the gf chicken nuggets are discontinued? I really hope not because that is one thing my daughter WILL eat.

    • Hi Jenny, my kids loved those too. I haven’t seen them in a long time at our Costco. Ask the store manager to look them up in their computer next time you are there :-). Let us know…my kids would be psyched it they come back.
