Best Frozen Foods at Costco Right Now


Another day, another excuse to talk about Costco. The warehouse’s food costs have increased significantly in 2023 thanks to shortages and inflation, with staple products such as eggs, butter, maple syrup, and bacon all rising in price—much to the chagrin of Costco loyalists. Even the price of a Costco membership is going up this year. But will that stop card-carrying members from renewing? Not likely.

Despite the groans of some, the allure of buying discounted food in bulk remains too strong to pass up. And the cult-like status of many Costco foods—hello, chocolate chip ricotta cheese and ham & cheese pastries—keeps customers coming back for more.

Still, even the most diehard Costco fans know it can be tough to predict what specific foods they’ll find on any given trip to their local warehouse, with inventory changing often. Luckily, that’s where we come in. Read on for our curated list of the best frozen foods you can find at Costco right now. We’ll see you in the freezer aisle.

1. Just Bare Chicken Breast Spicy Strips

Just Bare Chicken has been a longtime cult favorite among Costco shoppers. One customer who recently snagged the brand’s spicy strips took to Reddit to share that they were surprised by the “large, crispy, and spicy” flavor. Costco fans say these frozen spicy strips, which are priced at around $14.99, offer the same high quality as Just Bare Lightly Breaded Chicken Breast Chunks. The only problem is that despite (or maybe because of) their popularity, they seem to be a hard product to find: Another Reddit thread claims that at some locations, a new brand called Soules Kitchen has replaced Just Bare on Costco shelves, though we have been unable to verify that. Either way, we recommend checking your local store and snagging these babies if you can.

3. Kirkland Signature Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon

If there’s one thing Reddit is good at, it’s clocking the best food items. In this case, it’s Kirkland Signature Wild Caught Alaska Sockeye Salmon. This Costco thread shared the best methods for getting the most flavorful salmon, including the sous vide, pan-seared, or baking method. No matter which way you prep it, this boneless, skin-on fish is worth a try.

4. Kirkland Signature Organic Blueberries

Great tasting but they have added sugar. This makes them more tempting to eat as a snack but less useful as healthy dietary food. Dried blueberries are great in oatmeal and baked goods, both of which hydrate the berries and bring out the full flavor. The added sugar is not needed or welcome.

5. Tattooed Chef Vegetable Lo Mein

Need a new dinner option? A user on Costco’s Reddit thread found a Vegetable Lo Mein from Tattooed Chef for $11.99. Per the bag’s description, the mix contains cauliflower noodles, broccoli, carrots, red bell peppers, mushrooms, and sugar snap peas, soaked in a tangy garlic and ginger sauce. Though we can’t find it on Costco’s website, that’s fairly common—see if you can spot it at your local store.
