Bare Apple Chips
How about a sweet snack? Reddit user u/drustein also recommends apple chips for a great healthy go-to, and at Costco, you can easily find bags of Bare Apple Chips.
Wonderful Pistachios Chili Roasted
Reddit user u/profiliga says their favorite all-time snack to grab at Costco is a bag of chili roasted pre-shelled pistachios. Pistachios are full of plant-based protein and healthy fats, making them a perfectly healthy snack when you're looking for something flavorful. You can easily find a bag of Wonderful Pistachios Chili Roasted at Costco.
Wholly Guacamole Single Portion Cups
Don't feel like making an entire batch of guacamole for one? These single portion guacamole cups recommended by u/rhaizee are great for packing and taking with you. Enjoy them with a side of veggies for dipping, like baby carrots or bell pepper slices.
Stonefire Mini Naans
For u/HeyGirlBye, an easy go-to healthy Costco snack is grabbing mini naan bread to dip into little packets of hummus—which, don't you worry, we also listed below. You can grab a package of Stonefire Mini Naans Original, or even get a container of the Stonefire Naan Dippers if you're looking for an even smaller flatbread.
Mush Ready-To-Eat Oats
Hidden in the dairy section of Costco you'll find individually wrapped containers of ready-to-eat oats by a brand called Mush. Reddit user u/good_i_dea says they are generally around 230 calories, 7 grams of protein, and are dairy-free. So if you need a fiber boost and you're looking for something on the sweeter side, this is the perfect healthy Costco snack for you.
Okay, maybe it's not traditional to grab shrimp cocktail for a snack on the go. But if you're working at home more often and looking for something simple yet elegant to snack on, why not grab some shrimp cocktail to put in your fridge? At least that's what u/drustein suggests!
For Reddit user u/pitchingfitness, a staple 100-calorie snack is a package of roasted seaweed. Each package comes with around 50 sheets, according to this user, and is the perfect vehicle for making "sushi" with tuna at home.
Unsalted Mixed Nuts
If you're looking to limit your sodium intake, Reddit user u/CreditCaper1 suggests grabbing a container of Kirkland's Unsalted Mixed Nuts. Given that sodium is one of the main culprits of hypertension and the increased risk of cardiovascular disease, this sounds like a great suggestion to us!
Kirkland Turkey Jerky
Need something salty and savory that won't overdo it on the carbs, while also filling you? Jerky is a great snack, especially the Kirkland Turkey Jerky recommended by Reddit user u/justmadethisup111.
Sabra Single Serve Hummus Cups
While dipping those single mini naans into hummus is a fun option for a healthy Costco snack, Reddit user u/Zhuzhuuu suggests also grabbing a bag of baby carrots for dipping. They also say bell peppers make for an amazing veggie alternative!
Parm Crisps Snack Mix
Reddit user u/fauxfei says for a low-carb, keto-friendly snack, go for the Parm Crisp Snack Mix. They are nut-based (typically made with almonds and pistachios) and are available in different flavors like Ranch and Smokey Barbecue.
Kirkland Garlic Roasted Almonds
If eating unsalted mixed nuts isn't your thing, Kirkland also sells a variety of flavored nuts to choose from—like these Garlic Roasted Almonds recommended by Reddit user u/Jules4326.
Clio Less Sugar Yogurt Bars
Craving a sweet treat like chocolate or ice cream, but don't want to overdo it on the sugar? Clio Less Sugar Yogurt Bars are a great option and a personal favorite for Reddit user u/Australiaaa. These bars are only 100 calories and come in multiple flavors like Peach, Mixed Berry, and Coconut.
