It seems like everyone has a reason why they finally decided to join Costco. For some, it’s the convenience of shopping in bulk, so you don’t have to go to the store as often. For others, it’s the savings you can get on staple items like laundry detergent and paper towels. But sometimes, the thing that finally gets someone to sign up for a Costco membership is one item so good, they just couldn’t go without. And commenters on Reddit are currently sharing the Costco items they realized the just couldn’t do without.

In a post started by user Brayder, they shared that “I saw a post about the Kirkland almonds, I remembered them being /that/ good so I decided to finally grab my own membership.” If there’s one thing Costco shoppers love to do, it’s evangelize about their favorite products, so the comments in reply are basically like a premade shopping list for the next time you head to the warehouse store.
One of the most popular items that people mentioned as being a must-buy at Costco is their cheese. Many folks said that the big blocks of cheese were both a better value than what you can find at a traditional grocery store, and that the last longer. But it wasn’t just the standard cheddar and swiss that got rave reviews — shoppers also waxed poetic about the Pecorino Romano, imported Parmesan, Gruyère, and burrata.
Reading about Costco shoppers’ frozen food favorites might make you want to get a backup freezer for the garage (which you can also probably buy at Costco!). The Kirkland Frozen Meatballs got a lot of love for being a great weeknight meal starter. “Good for a quick dinner with pasta and Kirkland pesto,” one person shared. Several commenters also swore that the Kirkland Breaded Chicken Breast Chunks are “the BEST chicken nuggets.”
The original poster said that chocolate covered almonds were the Costco item that finally convinced them to get a membership, and they’re not the only ones who love the snack selection at the warehouse. Edward Marc Coconut Almonds got a shoutout from several people. “Those almonds are freaking dangerous,” shared one commenter. “My husband and I downed a whole bag over a week.” Another person agreed. “Same here. We usually don’t snack. Bought a bag for Christmas. Big mistake. Bought them 3x again,” they said.
