Costco is well-known for the fact that they offer tons of great deals on bulk items—but it isn’t just the savings that make this warehouse store so beloved. As it turns out, the quality of their products is typically just as great as the value. In fact, many Costco items have acquired quite the cult following. If you’re new to the Costco-verse, or if you’re just looking to expand your grocery list horizons, we’re here to help. Below, we’re rounding up a few of the most loved products on Costco shelves, from crackers to Chick-fil-A copycat chicken bites.

1. Simple Mills Almond Flour Crackers

There's no shortage of great snacks at Costco. When you're craving something crunchy, salty, and at least a little bit healthy, blogger and Costco shopper Camille Styles says you should look no further than these Simple Mills Almond Flour Crackers. This snack, which she describes as "addicting in the best way," is made of almond flour, sunflower seeds, and flax seeds. It's a perfect choice for adding to your charcuterie board—or just eating straight out of the box.

2. Sheet Cake

Dessert, anyone? Whether you're hosting a party on a budget or just want to treat yourself to something sweet, Costco is the place to go for an affordable, delicious sheet cake. One Reddit user who ordered a custom cake described it as "beyond delicious. Rich, decadent, perfect. And only $25 for a size that feeds 48 people." Sign us up!

3. Basil Pesto

If you ask us, pesto tastes good on just about everything, which is why stocking up with a big jar from Costco is always a good idea. But not only does Costco deliver on value; their Basil Pesto is seriously delicious, too. One superfan even compared it to homemade varieties. "I have been anti-store-bought pesto for pretty much my entire life but I recently bought theirs in the refrigerated section... Life-changing in my opinion."

4. Rotisserie Chicken

We really can't talk about Costco without talking about their Rotisserie Chicken. This is perhaps the store's most iconic food item of all time (maybe tied with those jumbo hot dogs). You really can't go wrong with a whole chicken for just $5, which is why fans love to rave about this cult-favorite product. "Just me and my ziplock bag of cut up Costco rotisserie chicken against the world," someone wrote on X (the website formerly known as Twitter). You and all of us!

5. Milk Chocolate Almonds

If you have a sweet tooth but are trying to stay on the healthier side, milk chocolate almonds can be a great compromise. After all, almonds are some of the healthiest snacks around, boasting a range of health benefits. How much could adding chocolate hurt? Regardless of the nutritional content, though, there's no denying that this stuff is delicious. "They’ve been an obsession of mine for at least 10 years," one fan wrote on Reddit.

6. Just Bare Breaded Chicken Breast Chunks

We all have go-to fast food orders, and as it turns out, Costco can help you save some money (and a trip to the drive-through) by stocking up on some amazing copycat items. At the top of the list are these Just Bare Breaded Chicken Breast Chunks, which fans claim taste just like Chick-fil-A's iconic nuggets for a fraction of the price. One fan said they "definitely live up to the hype."

Recently, Costco also added a breakfast sandwich strikingly similar to a Starbucks fave. They're both worth a shot!
