Bulk Up

Buying snacks in bulk makes sense when you consider that they usually have long shelf lives and let's face it — we all go through them pretty quickly anyway. So there's no need to worry about them going bad before you can eat them all, especially if you have kids or grandkids to feed. Costco has loads of crave-worthy snacks, both sweet and savory (and even for special diets), that let you load up for cheap. Here are some of the most delectable options, from pizza rolls to chocolate-covered, sea-salt caramels.

Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Crackers Costco

Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Crackers

$11 for 66 ounces

If you have kids or grandkids, Goldfish crackers are indispensable. This huge 66-ounce box has three bags so they don't all go stale on you. They're 16 cents per ounce at Costco versus 27 cents per ounce at big box stores.

Pirate's Booty Costco

Pirate's Booty

$11 for 40 bags

Like the Goldfish crackers, Pirate's Booty is a cheesy, salty snack that's low in calories. It comes in boxes of 40 lunchbox-sized bags, so even if you don't have kids, you won't be tempted to eat too much at once. 

Cretors Cheese and Caramel Mix Popcorn Costco

Cretors Cheese and Caramel Mix Popcorn

$7 for 32 ounces

This sweet-and-salty combination of caramel and cheese popcorn all mixed together is a fan favorite. Just be sure to shake the bag or mix it up in a bowl for an even distribution since the heavier caramel corn sinks to the bottom. 

Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps Costco

Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps

$8 for 28 ounces

Can't decide between chips or pretzels? These pretzel crisps are the best of both worlds. They are thin and chip-shaped for optimal crispness — and dunking ability — but they taste like a crunchy pretzel. 

Kirkland Signature Microwave Popcorn Costco

Kirkland Signature Microwave Popcorn

$12 for 44 packages

If you've been having an unusually high amount of movie nights since the pandemic started, now's the time to start buying your microwave popcorn in bulk. There are 44 packs of movie theater butter-flavored popcorn in this box which equates to an impressive 9 pounds.

Kirkland Signature Peanut Butter Pretzels Costco

Kirkland Signature Peanut Butter Pretzels

$10 for 55 ounces

You can find similar peanut butter-filled pretzel nuggets at a lot of stores nowadays, but they're still a bit pricey in small bags. Put them in an almost 3.5-pound plastic jar, however, and they're a bargain that will last a long time without going stale. 

Kirkland Signature Premium Extra Thick Steak Strips

Kirkland Signature Premium Extra Thick Steak Strips

$11 for 12 ounces

This smoke-flavored beef jerky is tender and cut extra thick. For keto eaters trying to get their protein levels up, they’re a great choice. But note that there are 4 grams of sugar per strip, so if you’re being extra careful about your macros, don’t go too crazy.

Ruffles cheddar and sour cream potato chips Costco

Ruffles Potato Chips

$7 for 27 ounces

There isn't much potato chip selection in big bags at Costco — you'll only see Ruffles in original and cheddar and sour cream flavors. But if your family goes through them quickly, they're a great deal. It's less than a quarter an ounce, but at least 35 cents per ounce at stores like Target.

Kirkland Signature Extra Fancy Mixed Nuts Costco

Kirkland Signature Extra Fancy Mixed Nuts

$16 for 40 ounces

Mixed nuts have always been on the pricey side, and with inflation, the price is only going up. So it makes sense to buy in bulk, especially when they come in an airtight jar like this one. This mix even includes macadamia nuts. 

Kirkland Signature Trail Mix Costco

Kirkland Signature Trail Mix

$13 for 64 ounces

Trail mix has evolved beyond good old raisins and peanuts, though not by much. This 4-pound, resealable bag also includes almonds, cashews, and M&Ms for extra sweetness in all those salty nuts.

Kirkland Signature Ice Cream Bars Costco

Kirkland Signature Ice Cream Bars

$9 for 18 bars

Smucker's Uncrustables Costco

Smucker's Uncrustables

$13 for 18 sandwiches

No matter the logic or lack thereof, an Uncrustable is always better than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, especially when it's in a lunchbox. Since they're frozen at Costco, you can keep them around for a long time as a special treat for only 72 cents per sandwich.

Kellogg's Nutrigrain Bars Costco

Kellogg's Nutrigrain Bars

$14 for 64 bars

M&Ms Peanut Costco

M&Ms Peanut

$14 for 62 ounces

It's a lot easier to grab a handful of M&Ms when they're in a bulk jar like this one — though that may be a disadvantage, depending on your view. You'll get almost 4 pounds of the chocolate candy, and it's also available in plain M&Ms too.

Sanders Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels Costco

Sanders Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels

$9 for 36 ounces

If you're someone who can have this jar of amazing dark chocolate-covered sea-salt caramels in your house for more than a couple days before it disappeared, congratulations. If not, maybe only keep a jar around for special occasions. 

Kirkland Signature Milk Chocolate Almonds Costco

Kirkland Signature Milk Chocolate Almonds

$14 for 48 ounces

The almonds at the center of these candies are roasted, giving them a nuttiness that goes especially well with the creamy milk chocolate coating. This 3-pound tub will last a long time and is more convenient than a bag.

Fannie May S'mores Snack Mix Costco

Fannie May S'mores Snack Mix

$10 for 18 ounces

It's hard to put down this bag of s'more snack mix from nostalgic candy maker Fannie May. It includes a mix of crunchy graham cracker squares and chewy marshmallows, all coated in rich milk chocolate. Though s'mores are usually a summertime treat, it's available year round.

Nature Valley Crunchy Granola Bars Costco

Nature Valley Crunchy Granola Bars

$14 for 49 packs

Fans of crunchy snacks adore these Nature Valley oat and honey bars. They're crumbly and crisp in just the right way, and besides a snack on its own, they're great crumbled on top of yogurt or ice cream. For only 28 cents per pack, this deal is hard to pass up.

Kirkland Signature Soft and Chewy Granola Bars

Kirkland Signature Soft and Chewy Granola Bars

$8 for 64 bars

If you're more the chewy granola bar type, then grab these chocolate chip bars from Costco's own brand. They're only 100 calories per bar, and only 13 cents each. 

Welch's Fruit Snacks Costco

Welch's Fruit Snacks

$13 for 90 packs

As the box says, these fruit snacks are made with real fruit — and plenty of sugar, which is what makes them so good. But they're a great snack option for satisfying that sweet tooth, and it'll only cost 14 cents per pouch to do it.

Kirkland Signature Praline Pecans Costco

Kirkland Signature Praline Pecans

$13 for 40 ounces

Buying plain pecans is not cheap, let alone candied pecans like these. But $13 for two-and-a-half pounds is a great deal, especially when you consider how good these are with their sweet, caramel-like praline coating.
