Although most of us are still sticking close to home, the change of seasons is helping us cope. Warmer weather means that, in addition to your bedroom and kitchen, you can now also hang out on the porch or in the yard (if you’re lucky to have one). It also means it’s time for grocery stores to usher in their new seasonal groceries — something to get excited about! We haven’t been making many trips to Costco, but we did go for a re-stock recently and we spotted a few spring finds — including pallets of planters, giant packs of allergy antidotes, and more.

Here are the best things you can buy at Costco right now for spring. (You know, aside from toilet paper.)

Also I want to note that, to keep my shopping trip safe and efficient, I snapped photos quickly of everything that caught my eye and only touched items I planned to purchase.

1. Sconza Lemoncello Chocolate Almonds, $9.49 for 24 ounces

Even if you aren’t familiar with limoncello, the famous Italian aperitif, you’re bound to enjoy this lemony spring treat. Once you try these crunchy roasted almonds coated in white chocolate and citrusy lemon cream, you’ll have a hard time settling for regular almonds.

2. OXO Salad Dressing Shaker Set, $14.99 for two

With all of the fresh baby greens arriving in the spring, you’re probably looking for a way to upgrade them. This set of shakers is ideal for meal prepping your favorite salad dressings each week. Because there are two in the pack, plan to fill one with a vinaigrette and the other with a creamy sauce for dips and dressing.

3. Pasta Prima Spinach & Mozzarella Ravioli, $10.99 for 3.5 pounds

We consider frozen ravioli to be an essential part of a well-stocked freezer. This spinach and mozzarella variety pairs perfectly with lemon, butter, and Parmesan for light and easy spring meals. It’s also a great upgrade to your standard pasta salads. We predict this will be a new go-to ingredient for WFH lunches and back-porch dinners.

4. Kirkland Signature Wild Caught Atlantic Cod, $16.49 for 2 pounds

Spring is the perfect time to add a mild white fish, like cod, to the dinner queue. These fillets come frozen and individually packaged so you can thaw only what you need. Pair with herbed new potatoes, tender spinach, or spicy salsa.

5. La Terra Fina, $12.79 for two

Have you ever taken the time to appreciate just how versatile quiche is? A veggie-packed quiche is perfectly palatable for breakfast, lunch, and dinner; suitable for slow Saturday mornings; and even a celebratory Zoom brunch. It’s best to have one (or in this case, two) in the fridge or freezer at all times.

6. Kirkland Signature Spiral Sliced Ham, $1.89 per pound

Costco always has great prices on spiral-cut hams for springtime. Even if you’ve never made one before, this is the year to prepare ham from home. This spiral sliced ham comes with a seasoning packet, but it’s easy to mix up a homemade glaze if you want to give it a go.

7. Culinary Classics Kitchen Towels, $12.99 for eight

All this cooking and cleaning these last few months might have your kitchen towels a little worse for wear. Demote old towels to rag duty, and replace them with a colorful new Costco set.

8. Kirkland Signature Organic Large Eggs, $5.99 for two dozen

Sure, eggs are a year-round staple, but it seems like we go through even more of them come spring. This carton of two-dozen brown eggs is a shopping list staple, and will get you weeks of frittatas and hard-boiled egg breakfasts.

9. Lamb Loin Chops, $6.99 per pound

Don’t be intimidated by these tiny tenderloin chops! If you can grill a steak or skillet-sear a pork chop, then you already have the skills necessary to prepare lamb chops. Lamb chops have a rich, savory flavor and subdued serving size that feels right for the gradual lightening of meals this season.

10. Lifetime Folding Picnic Table, $149.99

Eating outside (if you’re able) is a simple way to lift your spirits. This folding picnic table is lightweight and carries no chance for splintering or split boards. Although it is a splurge, we have a feeling we’re in for a long stretch of picnicking and dining al fresco at home.
