10 Groceries from Costco I’m Buying on Repeat This Fall (They’re All Just $10 or Less)
Along with everyday staples, Costco is one of the best places to shop for seasonal finds at great prices. And they have really delivered this fall! While they already have plenty of winter items (Christmas was out before the end of September!), I’m sticking to current times — and Costco has plenty of fall-inspired finds to help me fill my cart.
Along with fresh apples, fresh pears, and loads of butternut squash, these are the other fall finds at Costco I just can’t quit buying.
1. Nature’s Path Organic Pumpkin Flax Granola, $5 for 35.3 ounces
Nature’s Path Pumpkin Seed Granola with Flax practically screams fall! It should be your go-to granola for sprinkling over yogurt, swapping for cereal, or just snacking straight outta the bag. I even like it in applesauce (see my favorite one below). For less than $5, you also can’t beat the price per pound!
2. Inno Foods Dark Chocolate Keto Nuggets, $6.99 for 16 ounces
These delicious little clusters are the newest chocolate snack to hit my local Costco and they are definitely worth putting in your cart if you see them at your store! Filled with coconut shreds and real dark chocolate — that’s not too bitter or too sweet — they’re just sweet enough without being too over-the-top. They also have a nice crunch from the addition of pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and crispy quinoa. Bonus: They’re organic and contain no refined sugar.
3. Mott’s Organic Unsweetened Applesauce Cups, $9.99 for 36 cups
Let me introduce you to one of my all-time favorite Costco items. I buy it regularly, but DOUBLE up during the fall season. It’s like I can’t get enough applesauce this time of year or find enough ways to use it. I use unsweetened applesauce in baking in place of sugar, eggs, and/or oil when I can, and I also keep these on hand for snacking. Pro tip: They’re particularly delicious if you stick them in the freezer (with the lid on) for 45 minutes before enjoying them. They get a little sweeter and almost turn into a frosty-like treat!
4. Bare Organic Baked Apple Chips, $7.99 for 14 ounces
These sweet and crispy chips are new to my warehouse and just begging for space in my pantry during the fall! Beyond munching on them right out of the bag, these apple chips are super versatile. For instance, you can crumble them up and add a tablespoon or two to oatmeal before you cook it. (They’ll turn soft and perfect!) You can also mix them into a plain granola or muesli to add instant fall flavor. I’ve even steeped a couple slices with warm water and a chamomile tea bag to make a delicious apple-infused tea. Did I mention they have no added sugar? They’re just dried apples — hard to argue with that kind of purchase!
5. Inno Foods Keto Crackers, $7.99 for 16 ounces
Meet your new favorite cracker for any batch of salsa, hummus, guacamole, or fall-flavored dip of choice. My go-to dip is a red pepper hummus from Costco and it really does pair perfectly with these grain-free seedy crackers by Inno Foods. Made with pumpkin seeds, almonds, and sunflower seeds, they’re nutrient-packed, gluten-free, and have no added sugar.
6. General Mills Morning Summit Cereal, $9.99 for 38 ounces
This new Morning Summit blend by General Mills is made from wholesome ingredients like almonds, pumpkin seeds, coconut, and whole-grain wheat, and is sweetened with maple syrup. The cranberries and tart cherries also add a delicious fall flavor. I eat it when I want something other than my usual yogurt and granola.
7. Culinary Treasures Organic Low-Sodium Vegetable Broth, $9.99 for 8 (32-ounce) cartons
This time of year, it seems like we all go through vegetable broth like water (it’s soup and stew season, after all!). This low-sodium broth from Culinary Treasures is the one I fill my cart with when Costco has it in stock. It’s loaded with savory flavor and has notes of different herbs and spices without being overly salty. I love to cook rice, vegetables, and lentils in this as soon as the weather starts to cool down. Plus, you can’t beat the price!
8. Mayorga Organics Mayan Blend Whole Bean Coffee, $9.99 for 32 ounces
This is a new coffee variety at Costco and I was over the moon to see it! I love trying all sorts of coffees at Costco, and this is my new favorite. I’m sensitive to dark roasts, but this medium-bodied roast by Mayorga hit the spot. It’s full of body and has a nice flavor without being too weak or bitter. Pick up a bag if you can!
9. Sunrise Growers Organic Chia Seed Bowl, $8.99 for 6 (6-ounce) bowls
This new frozen find is so perfect for fall! It’s a chia seed bowl that you simply defrost and nuke. It’s flavored with real vanilla beans and real blueberries, which I think is the perfect combo. On cool fall mornings when I don’t want something too heavy, this hits the spot! I just thaw on the counter for a few minutes, then heat in the microwave.
10. RW Garcia Organic Sweet Potato Crackers, $8.99 for 2 (15-ounce) bags
I bought these for my family — a group of people obsessed with corn chips — and they had such a fit over them, that I went back and bought them a second box. As a nutritionist, I love that these are made with whole-grain corn and real organic sweet potatoes, and are non-GMO. They also have no hydrogenated oils (trans fats). All in all, these were a great find for my family and they now buy them each time they visit Costco!
