Costco Organic and Natural Food Finds and Prices.

You had me at "sprouted".

Costco on a Saturday morning…why not? We headed out the door and found our favorite store filled with sample hungry shoppers.  People complain about Costco on Saturdays, but it is really not all that bad.  After pushing a beast of a stroller through that store for years with the twins, I almost expect to not be able to navigate very smoothly.  But, it was no big thing with all registers open and parking for everyone.  In fact, the only thing that slowed us down on this trip…ME!  The shoppers (and my husband) must have thought I was crazy snapping pictures of price tags every few feet.  I heard my husband explain to one male shopper who questioned us, “She has a blog”.  I am not sure if that helped explain, or confirmed the fact that I am actually crazy.  Some people don’t get the “blog” thing.  Some people also don’t get having 3 kids 3 and under.  Call us crazy.

Here is a list of my findings. This list is not exhaustive.  Also remember that Costco’s stock changes quickly.  Sometimes an item will be carried for quite some time, and other times it is just making a brief appearance.

 

UPDATE BELOW with my findings on my most recent trip in early Jan 2013

This price list is from the Salem Oregon store.  Prices and stock carried can vary by store and region. The reader tips are likely from a different store. An astrix (*) at the end of the price indicates that it is their last shipment. Stock up if it is something you love.

    I noticed at our Costco for the first time a 4lb. bag of organic quinoa…I think it was $9.99, with per lb. $2.50ish. I was pretty excited.

      Thank you so much! Not sure how I missed that. Maybe because we have 2 bags in the pantry already :) I will add it to the list and confirm next time!

    I live on the BC and WA borders – and up here in BC we just got in organic hemp husks (i think that’s what they’re called) – they’re super cheap at $13’ish and are great for your skin and hair and nails =) naturally takes out wrinkles, thickens hair and helps um……keep you regular lol

    I think the milk is a three pack.
    Also, not sure on prices but they also have flour raw tortillas, you have to fry them but they are so good. In fridge near the diary.

    We also like that their turkey bacon is nitrate free and the sasuage log s also nitrate free.

    You will also find annies snacks, fruit leather &
    the list goes on!

    We bought Nature Valley 100%Natural Crunchy Multigrain Chips with sea salt & honey. We found them to be a great snack. After finishing the bag we went back to Costco to buy some more for ourselves and friends, but could not find them anywhere in the store. We asked one of the Costco employees where they might be located and he told us that Costco was not carrying the item anymore. We were very disappointed to hear that. We are now looking at other stores for the product.

    Good luck I also went to Costco today and was told the same thing. I really loved these crisps. And I checked the web site for natures valley and they do not have them in the product line up either. I am so sad!!

    Do you remember ever seeing a blend of whole grains at Costco? We’ve had it here (on the east coast) a couple times, but I haven’t seen it for a long time. It was imported from Italy, I think … had grains including farro, spelt, rice, and a bunch of others. And it took like 10 minutes to cook. It was in a bag with some orange markings. I would love to know what it is so that I can do a web search, and I can’t remember the name of it! It’s something I would recognize. Any ideas there?
