Save big on popular nut free brands — now at Costco! These nut free Costco products are perfect for packing into nut free lunches for kids, or for after-school snacking. Allergen information is included, but most products are made in dedicated, nut-free facilities.
We’ve been Costco members since long before my son’s allergy diagnosis. And are big Costco fans in general. But, as with so many other parts of our life, once we began looking at the world through the food allergy lens, we wondered if our membership would continue to make sense.
Luckily, we’ve been extremely happy with the peanut and tree nut free offerings at our local Costco!
This is a quick list of nut free Costco products that most locations carry.
These brands are very transparent about being “nut free” (i.e. have clear, nut free labeling on packages or on their website).
As an allergy parent, I love to support the brands that choose to be extremely transparent about their manufacturing processes. And especially those that are able to maintain nut free facilities or dedicated lines.
Note: The brands and products listed below should be available at most Costco locations, but, as with all products they carry, some can appear and disappear, depending on the time of year, location, etc. For example, I’d heard about MadeGood products being available at some Costcos throughout the country for quite a while, but only just managed to find them at my local Costco recently.
Regardless, this is a good list of items to keep your eyes peeled for at your Costco!
Please use these lists as a guide, and do your own research to make sure the products listed are 100% safe for your family and your situation. Where available, I included links to brand allergen information pages, for your easy, up-to-date reference. Check and recheck and recheck, as manufacturing processes change constantly. Also, although peanuts are technically a legume and not a nut, I often use the term “nut free” to mean both peanut free and tree nut free.

Nut Free Brands at Costco
Last Updated: June, 2019
According to a press release from May, 2019, you should expect to see even more Veggies Made Great muffins at your local Costco, depending on location, so keep your eyes peeled! The varieties to be on the lookout for in the freezer section are: Broccoli Cheddar Frittatas, Mushroom & 3 Cheese Egg White Frittatas, Spinach Egg White Frittatas, and Veggie Bacon, Potato & Egg Frittatas. (FAQ)
According to Costco’s website, they carry both the Fruit on the Go variety pack, as well as the Veggies on the Go variety pack. FWIW, I’ve only seen the Fruit on the Go at my Costco, but I’m always hopeful to find the veggie version. Hopefully you’ll find both at your local store! They’re free of the Top 8 allergens and produced in a facility that’s free of the Top 8 allergens, which makes them the perfect pouch for kids with (most) food allergies, or to send your kids to school with. (FAQ)
Costco carries Harvest Snap’s Lightly Salted Green Pea Snack Crisps flavor, but they have a bunch of other flavors that you can find at other stores near you, like Wasabi Ranch, Habanero, Parmesan Garlic and more (or from Amazon, link below). All of their flavors are free of peanuts and tree nuts, and are made in a nut free facility. (FAQ)
Made Good sells big, mixed bags of their Mixed Berry and Chocolate Chip granola minis at Costco. My son loves these! We love their granola bars, too, but the granola minis are definitely a fan favorite. They made their granola in a facility that’s free from peanut, tree nut, soy, dairy, egg, fish, shellfish, gluten, and sesame. (Allergen Statement)
Costco sells quite a few Namaste Foods, which is a Top 8 allergen free company, products on their website, though I haven’t had any luck finding them in my local store. They may be online-only. You can find their Gluten Free Cookie Mix, Gluten Free Perfect Flour Blend, Gluten Free Waffle & Pancake Mix, Gluten Free Brownie Mix, and Gluten Free Raw Goods Variety Pack. All of their products are made in a facility that’s free from the Top 8 allergens. (FAQ)
Costco carries a variety pack of Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars, including the whole wheat raspberry, blueberry, and original fig flavors. They’re made in a peanut and tree nut free facility, except for coconut. (FAQ)
On the package, it states these are made on “allergen free equipment,” but on their website, they offer even more detail, stating that their organic line of products are made in a certified organic manufacturing facility, where all of the equipment and ingredients are free from milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, soy, fish, shellfish, sulfites, and sesame. Costco carries the Original Brown Rice flavor, but they do offer additional flavors, including Mixed Berry, Apple Cinnamon, Banana Maple, Caramel Sea Salt and Strawberry. (FAQ)
My local Costco almost always has Pirate’s Booty in stock. On their website (June, 2019), they state that their products do not contain peanuts or tree nuts, and that they’re made in a nut free facility. But, they do state that ingredients may change from time to time, so always check the label on a specific product for the most current ingredient and allergen information. (FAQ)
These non-GMO popped corn snacking chips are available in a large variety pack at Costco. You get 9 Sea Salt snack bags, 9 White Cheddar bags, and 10 Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn bags. On the box it says: Made in a facility that does not process peanuts or tree nuts. Made in a facility that does process dairy. (FAQ)
I thought these would still be good to include as an honorable mention, since they’re made in a peanut-free facility. Please note they are not safe for those with tree nut allergies. Per their website, they state: Our Layered Fruit Bars are certified organic, non GMO, vegan, gluten-free, soy free, kosher and made with fruit and vegetable juices and purees. We use no cane syrups or cane sugar, no artificial flavors or colors and our fruit snacks are produced in a peanut-free facility. (Allergen Info)
I was so excited to find these at Costco. I’d been looking for a healthier snack cracker for my kids, and these fit the bill! The package says: “Made in a facility that uses dairy, soy, sesame seeds and flaxseed.” So, peanut and tree nut free! Note: You may find either the Organic Lentil with Turmeric Crackers or the Organic Sweet Potato Crackers (or both) at your location.
This seems to be a staple Costco item, because I’ve had success finding it every time I’ve gone. And, it’s a well known nut-free brand. Some of their facilities process soy, wheat, fish, shellfish, and dairy, but they are peanut and tree nut free. (FAQ)
BONUS: Did you know the Kirkland Almond Butter is made in a peanut-free facility? If you’re only navigating a peanut allergy, this could be a great option! We picked some up for our upcoming oral food challenge for almonds.
Any favorites of yours that I missed? Please let me know if you’ve found a 100% nut-free snack that you recommend that’s made in a dedicated, nut-free facility and I’ll add it to the list!
Does your child have a peanut allergy? I love recommending the book Peter Can’t Eat Peanuts to parents. It’s an approachable story that has really resonated with and empowered my son. Available on Amazon!
