Move over, TJ's.

We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us what their favorite underrated Costco groceries are. Here's what they recommended...

1. Kirkland Signature Organic Hummus Singles

It's organic and non-GMO, and comes in individual containers (20 per box) ― perfect for snacking with veggies or pita chips. ―alanaw4f85bf194

2. Azuma Gourmet Seaweed Salad

As amateur-professional sushi eaters, my husband and I know a thing or two about seaweed salad. I screeched to a halt when I spotted this. (Bonus: It doesn't go bad for quite a while!) ―mrsg

3. Sambazon Açaí Juice

I use it to make fresh juices and smoothie bowls, or drink it as is! I buy two every week. ― maybelles

4. Golden Island Korean BBQ Pork Jerky

I don't like jerky very much, but by god I love me some Korean BBQ. I sampled this, bought it, and gnawed halfway through the (rather large) bag by the time I got home. ―mrsg

5. Kirkland Signature Dark Chocolate Super Fruits

6. Natierra Freeze-Dried Chocolate Bananas

They're AMAZING if you're craving something sweet ― and you can eat a ton without too many consequences (a serving only has five grams of sugar and 100 calories). ― ShadeOfBlue

7. Mamamango Mango Moscato

Literally one of the reasons I got a membership. ―meganr4d413fa48

8. Mooala Bananamilk

Instagram: @gangstaj

The best price and it makes me feel healthy AF. ―kayleereneem2

9. Looka Frozen Macarons

10. Island Way Sorbet

These sorbets in the actual fruit are THE best! We used to get them at summer camp and I begged to have them at home. ―vanessac4e1d3ae3a

11. Aidells Teriyaki Pineapple Chicken Meatballs

Instagram: @aidellssausage

I usually hate meatballs but THESE. ― graceh492eab91c

12. Universal Bakery Organic Aussie Bites

13. Tortilla Land Fresh Uncooked Flour Tortillas

These tortillas are life-changing. We have a Costco card just so we can buy these in bulk. ―shannondevenyb

14. Kirkland Signature Prosecco

$6.99 Kirkland Prosecco ― a staple at all the weddings/showers/parties I attend.


15. Kirkland Signature Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Poppers


Just tried these this week ― they're amazing. So rich and smooth, and the perfect amount of salt. ―t49e12a934

16. Kirkland Signature Organic Lemonade

The Kirkland-brand organic lemonade is honestly the best I've ever had. It's not too sweet or tart. ―Pilar De La Cruz, Facebook

17. Açaí Roots Organic Açaí Sorbet

Instagram: @acairoots

I literally make this every weekend for multiple meals ― it's so easy. You just scoop out the açaí, add some grains and fruit (I like peanut butter on mine), and BAM: a healthy, fruity, light meal. ―heatherjl

18. Edward Marc Dark Chocolate Coconut Almonds

Instagram: @helloplummy

These almonds are sooooo good! It's a great sweet snack and a HUGE bag so they last for a while. ―megans4b35e38d9

19. High Liner Tortilla-Crusted Tilapia

Instagram: @pumpkinqueen9

The lime and tortilla–crusted fish in the freezer section is incredible. I hate cooking fish but love eating it, and this perfectly seasoned beauty can be used in tons of ways. ―sheam46c8e0e03

20. Cosmos Creations Salted Caramel Popcorn

Instagram: @cecilia_bal

THIS. I haven't met anyone who didn't get addicted to it. It's crunchy, not too sweet, and the balance between the caramel and salt makes it addicting. (It's also a HUGE bag for a pretty cheap price.) ―stellaathalial

21. Kirkland Signature Dark Chocolate Toasted Coconut Cashews

These are seriously the most amazing thing ever! Once you eat one, you can't stop. ―haileyh42f0748c6

22. Giovanni Rana Butternut Squash Ravioli

23. Seasoned Rotisserie Chicken

Instagram: @florida_familygirl

The rotisserie chickens are really good. I've stood in line to get one because so many people were waiting for them to be cooked and packaged up.
