Costco is increasingly become more and more vegan-friendly. From selling millions of plant-based burgers to removing the Polish hot dog off its menu to make room for more vegan options, the big box retailer has shown its comittment to stocking more plant-based products on store shelves and expanding its menus to offer dishes free of animal products.
What’s vegan at Costco?
Thanks to the mainstreaming of veganism and plant-based diets, grocery store chains are more frequently stocking vegan products to meet increased consumer demand. And while Costco is a nationwide chain, no two locations are the same. Often, products not launched nationwide are launched regionally, but it’s always a good idea to call your local Costco to inquire about product availability when you’re on the hunt for something specific.
Vegan products range from ready-to-eat, accidentally vegan apple pie to plant-based corned beef slices and chocolate ice cream. Whether you’re shopping for a family of four or are stocking up for your weekend rager, Costco is the destination for vegan fare at discounted, wholesale pricing.
