Goodness Without the Gluten

There's been an explosion of gluten-free foods in the last several years, and Costco is no slouch when it comes to courting shoppers who need or want to skip wheat and other dicey grains. We recently browsed the aisles of our favorite warehouse club to see — and try — what's available for gluten-free shoppers. Here are some of our favorite finds that we tasted, as well as items that have received rave reviews from Costco customers — just be sure to shop in store, not online, for the best price.

Prices and availability are subject to change.
