Costco Is Selling A New 5-Pack Of This Beloved Pasta
Banza is expanding its presence at Costco, the pasta company just announced. Chickpea spaghetti will be available in a pack of 5 bags for $9.59 at over 160 warehouses in the Midwest and Southeast soon.
The plant-based and gluten-free pasta is one of the best kinds of dry pasta you can get thanks to its high fiber and protein content since the combo helps keep you full longer.
The new 5-bag pack includes 20 servings of around 2 ounces. That equals about 1 1/2 cups of cooked pasta and includes 190 calories, 3.5 grams of fat, 35 milligrams of sodium, 32 grams of carbs, 5 grams of fiber, 2 grams of sugar, and 12 grams of protein. It also includes 15% or less of the daily recommended amount of Iron, Potassium, Magnesium, and Phosphorus.

"Banza is on a mission to inspire people to eat more chickpeas, which are good for human health and the environment," a spokesperson for the company told Eat This, Not That!. "By increasing its footprint in major retailers like Costco, Banza can reach even more people with chickpea products."
They added that the brand is now available to purchase at over 17,000 retailers nationwide, which is a 105% increase from two years ago. The bulk spaghetti pack joins other kinds of pasta at Costco like Rotini, and fans have been excited about it for a while.
Many who are gluten-free say the pasta is a great alternative to regular pasta that is made with flour, and that those who aren't also agree.
The new pack isn't available on Costco's website, but if you don't want to go to the warehouse, you can check Instacart in your area. In other news, Costco is one of the largest grocery retailers to recently drop its mask rule in warehouses for vaccinated customers.
