Costco June Edition

I’m back to sharing my Costco grocery hauls! Here are some of my new finds from my June shopping trip, including bacon cheddar crisps, dark chocolate nuggets and salted egg yolk cookies.

I took a little break from the monthly Costco posts. Shopping is a little different these days. While I am no longer leisurely walking up and down the aisles browsing through all the latest products, I am still buying a lot of my groceries from Costco so I wanted to continue to share some highlights from my monthly grocery haul.

Sonoma Creamy Bacon Cheddar Crisps

Mr. K and I both love bacon so we really enjoyed these. They are very crunchy with a strong bacon and cheddar flavor. I was mistakenly under the impression that the crackers were made solely out of cheese, like the cheese whisps that they also sell, but after reading the ingredient section I realized they do have rice added to them which make them crunchier but also not as friendly for those looking for something low carb.

Mochi Assortment

I was surprised to find assorted mochi being offered at Costco. Unlike mochi ice cream, these are the more traditional mochi.
The chewy confectionery treats are filled with a sweet paste. Inside the box, you’ll find three individual trays. The three flavors are matcha, red bean and taro. Our favorite was the taro.

Binggrae Melona Bars

I was really excited to find Costco now offering melona bars and I hope that it’s a permanent product. These Korean ice pops are one of my favorite treats. The fruit flavored pops are creamier than your typical ice pop.
The Costco price is cheaper than what I would pay if I bought them at the Korean grocery stores. I also like the flavors offered in the box, especially the mango and coconut.

Inside you’ll find 3 of the regular-sized boxes (each box contains 8 bars).

Innofoods Dark Chocolate Nuggets Coconut + Seeds

In August of last year, we tried their coconut clusters and really enjoyed them. This is basically the same as the coconut clusters, but covered in dark chocolate. It is a little messier to eat, especially now with the warm weather, but I do like them.

Simple Mills Almond Flour Crackers

I’ve walked by these crackers multiple times the last few shopping trips. I finally decided to give them a try. I thought the crackers tasted fine but I didn’t particularly love them. When I see something with almond flour these days, I automatically think of low carb and keto-friendly foods. However, these crackers contain tapioca starch and cassava flour so they are not low carb.

Daphne’s Beef and Lamb Gyro Slices

Mr. K used to eat at Daphne’s for lunch quite often and had been talking recently about how much he misses it. So I bought him these. Inside are two generous packages of gyro slices. All you need to do is heat them up on the stove.

TK Salted Egg Yolk Cookies

This may seem strange to some, but salted egg yolk is something used a lot in Chinese cuisine. Then last year, salted egg yolk flavored chips became hugely popular, launching an array of other salted egg yolk snacks like these cookies. I knew of these cookies but they were not offered at the San Diego Costco until recently.

I thought the cookies were okay. The salted egg yolk flavor is quite mild. I prefer the salted egg yolk chips over the cookies.

Bubbies Ice Cream Mochi

Bubbies is my favorite brand for ice cream mochi. The company is located in Hawaii and there are only a few stores in San Diego that carry Bubbies. Costco doesn’t always have it, but when they do, I always pick up a box because the price is much cheaper. Inside are three individual boxes of Bubbies mochi. This pack contains blood orange, strawberry and mango flavors.

That’s all for now!

  1. Great post! You got all the stuff I wanted to TRY (at Scripps Poway Costco) but didn’t throw in the cart because like you said, shopping is a little different these days…no longer leisurely browsing while snacking on samples. I was on a mission to get my list done and get out :). We did get the gyros though…big hit on our camping trip.
    PS: pandan recipes brought me here 😀

  2. Thank you for this post. I’m going to see if my Costco has the mochi and gyro slices. I haven’t been shopping too often at Costco. Lines can be long just to get in.
