From selling millions of “bleeding” vegan burgers to ditching hot dogs in its food courts in order to make room for more plant-based options, Costco is becoming vegan-friendly at a rapid pace. Here are 18 of our favorite finds from this big-box store that we’re filling our freezers and pantries with.
Big Box Vegan
1. Annie’s Organic Cinnamon Rolls
Gooey, buttery, sweet cinnamon rolls? Yes, please! These ready-to-bake rolls come in packs of three, with 15 rolls in each box, so you’ll be stocked for the upcoming chilly winter mornings.
