Kirkland Signature Organic Peanut Butter

“There was a time when this item was supposed to be discontinued and Costcos were going to focus on carrying national brands, like Jif and Skippy, but members begged for them to bring it back,” said Julie Ramhold, senior staff writer and spokesperson with DealNews.com. “It’s made with only dry roasted organic peanuts and sea salt, and costs about 4 cents per ounce. If you’re looking for natural options without additives, this is such an easy way to go and the peanut butter truly tastes fantastic.”

Snake River Farms Wagyu Corned Beef

  • Price: $7.99 per pound

“I’m stocking up on Snake River Farms Wagyu Corned Beef kits, which are only available in March each year,” Clark said. “Although these aren’t the A5 Wagyu, it is still a great cut of meat and everyone in the family likes this. I freeze them and use them throughout the year. I pop them into the slow cooker, and it’s an easy one-pot meal.”

Kirkland Signature Vanilla Chocolate Chunk Muffins

“If you missed these fan favorites last year, they are back in stores now,” Clark said. “I bag them up and freeze them individually. You can microwave them for about 20 to 30 seconds, and it’s an easy breakfast on the go.”

Kirkland Signature Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

“Experts, and even famous cooks, praise Costco for their big savings on olive oil,” said Rousseau Vestal, founder of the grocery shopping blog Find the Aisle. “Kirkland Signature organic extra virgin olive oil is one of the few olive oils that meet the extra-virgin requirements, and it costs less than 15% of the price of other brands. It also has a nice flavor.”
