There’s a reason this membership-only warehouse store is the second largest retailer in the world. Aside from providing just about everything you could need for your home and office, Costco is staying ahead of the curve by offering a plethora of organic vegan foods. Here are 20 of our favorite Costco finds that we’re filling our freezers and pantries with.
1. Don Lee Farm’s Beefy Burgers
This recently debuted, plant-based burger has been making major waves by selling 1 million units in less than 60 days at Costco, and becoming the fastest growing product in its category at the big-box store. With summer (and grilling season) quickly approaching, we’re filling our carts with bags of these “beefy” burgers.
2. GoGo Quinoa’s Super Grain Chocolate Cookies
These crunchy cookies are made with organic royal quinoa flour, dark chocolate chips, and chia seeds—so make sure to pick up a supersized box to always have a healthy snack on hand.
3. Hummus Pods
Simply pop these little nuggets into the oven for a quick and delicious snack or serve them as a party appetizer. Once you try them, you’ll know why you need to buy an extra large box (or two) of these Smoky Chipotle and Zesty Lemon hummus snacks.
