February may be the shortest month of the year (yes, even when it’s a leap year!), but Kitchn staffers still had plenty of time to hunt through Costco and find the greatest offerings. We bought a lot from the warehouse store (as we do every month), and, as you’d expect, some finds were better than others. Here are the 10 best things we bought at Costco this month.

1. Kirkland Signature Organic Olive Oil, $17 for two liters

Honestly, this stuff belongs on every single “Best of Costco” round up. It’s made in Italy, is incredibly inexpensive, and just as good — if not better — than other top name brands. In fact, it frequently wins in blind taste tests! It’s also a go-to for many professional chefs including Floyd Cardoz and Samin Nosrat.

2. Brazi Bites Brazilian Cheese Bread, $10 for 36 ounces

Brazi Bites have gotten incredibly popular and are great for anyone looking for a grain- and gluten-free snack. Made with tapioca flour and real milk and cheese, they’re crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Stock up for March Madness parties or after-school snacking.

3. Peri & Sons Farms Yellow Onions, $7 for 10 pounds

Surprised to see a giant, 10-pound bag of onions on this list? Well, it’s here because Kitchn contributor, Patty Catalano, recently figured out a brilliant way to make sure she can get her money’s worth from the whole bag. Read her tip and then follow suit.

4. Veggies Made Great Cranberry Orange Muffins, $12.50 for 20

Contributor Heather McClees found this newly added muffin flavor, which is about as winter-y as it gets. Treat yourself now before the weather starts to thaw. (It will thaw, right?! Eventually?) Look for these in the freezer section.

5. G.H. Cretors The Mix Popped Corn, $7 for 32 ounces

“I got a bag for the Super Bowl and I legit could have eaten the whole thing on my own without sharing,” says Patty. “It’s the perfect ratio of salty cheese to sweet caramel corn.”

6. Organic Pink Lady Apples, $15 for 5.5 pounds

“I have to bring snacks when I volunteer at my kid’s preschool each week, so I always get them at Costco,” says Associate Food Editor, Meghan Splawn. “I buy apples in bulk, slice them up, and call it a day. Sometimes I’ll also do Pirates Booty and Popcorn, which I’ll also get at Costco. But this month, it was apples.”

7. Kirkland Signature Marinated Artichoke Hearts, $10 for 33 ounces

Initially suggested for Valentine’s Day, these marinated artichoke hearts are great for any charcuterie board or a game-night Spinach and Artichoke Dip.

8. Kirkland Signature Dark Chocolate Belgian Thins, $9 for 17.6 ounces

Another Valentine’s Day-worthy treat, these pieces are sweet, nutty, and a little salty. They’re also the perfect bites for when you just need a little something after dinner.

9. Rotisserie Chicken, $5

If the olive oil was going to make this list, then the always-cheap rotisserie chicken was going to make it, too. They’re each just $5 and full of dinner possibilities.

10. Rao’s Marinara Sauce, $10.59 for two 28-ounce jars

Costco sells our all-time favorite marinara sauce! There’s just one catch: The jars are slightly larger than the usual size (because, Costco), but contributor Melissa Harrison Jameson has some tricks to help you use up every last drop.
