Vegan at Costco? Here Are Our Top Plant-Based Picks

Wondering about the vegan options at Costco? This beloved wholesale company is a surprisingly vegan-friendly retailer and recently made headlines for ditching its polish hot dog from the food court menu and replacing it with healthy vegan options.

Business Insider explains:

The new menu items, which include an al pastor salad with plant-based protein and an acai bowl with fresh fruit and Kirkland granola, are healthier than many of the other food-court offerings and can be vegan-friendly.

But it’s not just the food court. Costco offers a ton of vegan products—in bulk! We’ve put together a list of our top picks. Now all you need to do is find a friend with a Costco membership and go wild!

What’s Vegan at Costco?


Don Lee Farms Vegan Burgers

Earlier this year, Don Lee Farms sold more than a million units of its new organic plant-based burger in under 60 days at Costco. The burger made history as the fastest-growing product in its category at the wholesale chain.

Dairy-Free Milk

Costco offers a variety of vegan milk alternatives, including the company’s own Kirkland brand soy, almond, and rice milk. Plus, many locations offer coconut milk from Pacific Foods, as well as Thai Kitchen canned coconut milk, which is perfect for cooking!

Gardein

Gardein offers some of the very best vegan meat alternatives on the market, and you can get giant bags of these plant-based meats at Costco. This is reason enough to find a Costco near you.

This retailer has a seriously impressive selection of nuts and seeds, sold under the Kirkland brand. Loaded with healthy fats and protein, nuts and seeds are a great addition to any meal. So grab some pecans, walnuts, chia seeds, and more!

Vegan White Cheddar HIPPEAS

A giant bag of vegan cheese puffs? Yes, please! HIPPEAS is a fairly new brand of organic vegan chickpea puffs that gained attention after Leonardo DiCaprio made a minority equity investment.

Sabra Hummus

Loved by people around the globe, hummus is a must-have vegan staple. And Costco offers large tubs of Sabra hummus in a bunch of delicious flavors. What more could you want?

CLIF Bars

A good source of plant-based protein, CLIF bars come in a ton of flavors and are great when you’re in a pinch. Seriously, it’s always a good idea to keep some vegan snacks in your bag.


These vegan products are just the beginning. Nearly every grocer offers a variety of plant-based staples, from rice and beans to veggies and fruits.
