Costco has a lot of frozen food options. Many options rotate often or are seasonal, while some have secured a personal spot in Costco’s lineup. Here are our favorite Costco food options for 2023. 

Costco-Beer-Battered-Cod-Trident-Seafoods

Easy at-home fish and chips? Yes, please! The cod is excellent, and the beer batter is flavorful. They come out super golden brown in the air fryer and can also make for some tasty fish tacos. The 2.5-pound box of Beer Battered Cod sells for $17.99.

Pura Vida’s Brussel sprouts with bacon will have you wanting to eat your vegetables. The brussels sprouts are covered with bacon bits and are super convenient to make.

Costco-Coconut-Shrimp-Royal-Asia

Sweet and savory breaded shrimp, what else can you ask for? Oh, how about some sweet chili Thai dipping sauce! Costco’s coconut shrimp make for a delicious snack or even a meal, and they cost just $16 for a 2-pound box. 

Just be careful, these may not have the healthiest nutritional profile.

Cooked-Costco-Coconut-Shrimp
Costco-Samosas-Sukhis

I never would have guessed a potato and pea fried pastry would be so good, but here they are at #25 on our list of Costco’s best frozen foods. 

The samosas are flavorful and crispy, but the star of the show will be the cilantro chutney. I would buy just the cilantro chutney if I could. Get 16 Samosas for $14.99 or $11.49 when they are on sale.

Samosa-with-Chutney
Costco-Tyson-Crispy-Chicken-Strips

Chicken strips are an all-time classic, and these Tyson chicken strips definitely live up to their crispy name. 

They are excellent in the air fryer and go great with various dipping sauces. A 3-pound bag sells for $13.99 at Costco.

Extra-Crispy-Chicken-Strips
Ajinomoto Tokyo Shoyu Ramen Costco scaled

This one caused some controversy with the Costco Food Database team, but the deliciousness cannot be denied. The ingredients are a little non-traditional, but the heaping amounts of chicken make this shoyu ramen an extreme Costco value. 

6 bowls of frozen shoyu ramen can be purchased for just $14.99 or just $2.50 a bowl.

22. Cauliflower Crust Pizza - Milton’s

Costco-Cauliflower-Pizza

Milton’s Roasted Vegetable Cauliflower Crust Pizza takes the number 22 on our list. Milton’s frozen pizza is made with a thin & crispy cauliflower crust and is gluten-free. 

Packed with delicious vegetables, this pizza is light, tasty, and filling and makes for an awesome easy dinner. A 2 pack of Milton’s cauliflower crust pizzas costs $13.99.

Costco-Lobster-Roll-Kit

Hard to imagine that one of the more expensive frozen food items at Costco, coming in at $42.99, might actually be a Costco value buy. 

The hefty price tag gets you high-quality claw and knuckle lobster meat, 4 brioche rolls, and some uber tasty lobster butter. Pricey but worth it!

Lobster-Rolls-from-Costco
Costco Sweet Potato Fries Tropicland scaled

I’m not the biggest fan of sweet potatoes, but the sweet potato fries don’t disappoint. They are healthy, super flavorful, and satisfy my french fry cravings. 

The sweet potato fries are fantastic in the air fryer and cost only $10.99 for a four-pound bag.

Costco-Korean-Style-Crunchy-Chicken-Bibigo

Is Korean Fried Chicken the best fried chicken? Maybe, maybe not, but the Korean Style Crunchy Chicken from Bibigo is a winner. Super crispy breaded chicken in a gochujang-style sauce. 

What’s not to like? Pick up a 56-ounce box for $14.49.

Costco Chicken Sandwich La Boulangerie scaled

La Boulangerie brings their gourmet spicy chicken sandwich to the great chicken sandwich wars. While the chicken sandwich is on the smaller side, it is high quality and quite delicious. The chicken sandwich is lacking in heat, but easily customizable. 

6 Spicy Chicken Sandwiches sell for $12.99

Costco-Breakfast-Sausage-Chicken-Jones-Farms

All the flavor and taste of pork sausages with 75% less fat? Not quite, but they are still really darn good. Jones’ chicken sausages are high protein, low carb, and very easy to eat. 

A 3-pound bag costs $14.99, and don’t say I didn’t warn you; you will go through this bag quickly! 

Costco-Chicken-Breafast-Sausage
Kirkland Signature Pepperoni Pizza Frozen Costco scaled

It’s simple yet elegant. The Kirkland Signature frozen pepperoni pizza puts all other frozen pizzas in this price range to shame. The thin crust is actually tasty, and the pepperoni is high quality. 

A 4-pack of Kirkland Signature Pepperoni Pizza sells for $13.49.

Costco-Acai-Bowl-by-Tattooed-Chef

Costco’s acai bowls didn’t wow me immediately, but I really started to dig them when I ate the last few bowls. There is something about the acai puree that just pairs so well with the frozen berries. 

The bowls can also be spruced up with additional fruit, and the value is fantastic at $11.59 for 6 bowls or $7.99 when on sale.

Costco Grass Fed Hamburger Patty Kirkland Signature scaled

Easily the best frozen burger at Costco, and I would even argue that it is the best frozen burger around. The grass-fed burgers have a distinct smell and taste that elevate these ⅓ pound 80/20 burgers above the rest. 

You can’t go wrong with this 5-pound bag for only 24.99.

Costco Hamburgers with Cheese scaled
Costco-Everything-Seasoning-Breaded-Cod

Everything’s better with everything seasoning, and cod is no exception. The cod is moist, flakey, and tasty, and I have no complaints. Buy a 2.5-pound box for $17.89. They are worth it!

Kirkland-Signature-Everything-Cod
Costco-Panko-Shrimp-Kirkland-Signature

The super crispy panko breaded shrimp is made with butterflied shrimp and are perfect for the air fryer. Yes, they are essentially shrimp nuggets with a fancy tail handle, but they are delicious and fun to eat. 

The 2.5-pound box of panko breaded shrimp sells for $19.99, and I consider them to be one of the more overlooked options at Costco.

Boba Ice Cream? Who can say no? I-MEI’s boba brown sugar bars have the best of both worlds and are sweet but not overly sweet. There are plenty of boba balls hidden throughout the popsicle, and each one makes for a nice chewy surprise. 

This is a great ice cream bar that will leave you wanting more. They are another great Costco value coming in at $13.99 or $1.17 a bar.

Costco-Dumplings-Bibigo

There isn’t a lot to complain about with Bibigo’s Steamed Dumplings. They are lightly wrapped, stuffed full of chicken and vegetables, and super flavorful. The included sauce is amazing and can be poured right into the dumpling tray. 

A box of 36 dumplings costs $12.49, and they are worth stocking up on when they go on sale.

Dumplings-with-Sauce-Costco
Costco-Chicken-Wings-Foster-Farms-Takeout

I usually prefer to make my own chicken wings, but there is something about these Foster Farms Take Out Crispy Chicken Wings that just do it for me. They are fried to perfection before being frozen and come out super crispy from the air fryer. 

Sauce packets are included, and the 4-Pound $17.99 bag has everything you need to recreate takeout chicken wings at home.

Great-Costco-Chicken-Wings
Costco-EggWich

Red’s Egg’wich is my favorite of Costco’s breakfast sandwich options and is healthy, delicious, and low carb (3 grams). It’s a turkey sausage and cheese breakfast sandwich made with egg patties instead of buns. 

The Egg’wich is easy to cook and easy to eat and makes for a fantastic breakfast sandwich. A box of 8 sells for $13.99.

Eggwich-Breakfast-Sandwich
Costco-Motor-City-Pizza-Co-Detroit-Deep-Dish

I love meat pizzas, and I love Motor City Pizza Co’s Detroit Style Ultimate Meat Pizza. It’s savory, salty, and topped with loads of pepperoni, sausage, and bacon. There is so much meat that it literally falls off the pizza and cooks into the crust. 

It may not be healthy for you, but damn, it is good.

Light, fluffy, and crispy are words that I would use to describe the Kirkland Signature Tempura Shrimp. A 30-pack of these hand-battered shrimp sells for $17.99, and they are one of Costco’s fanciest frozen food options. They have the look and back it up with great flavor. 

Grab a box for your next party or gathering, or heck, even for yourself if you just want some delicious tempura shrimp.

Cooked-Costco-Tempura-Shrimp-Kirkland-Signature
Costco-Just-Bare-Chicken-Sandwich-Fillets

The Just Bare Chicken Sandwich Filets, aka the big brother of the Just Bare Chunks, take up the #5 spot on our list of Costco’s best frozen foods. 

The Just Bare Fillets take the same high quality chicken and light and crispy breading from the Just Bare Chunks and bring it to chicken sandwich fillet form. A 3-pound bag sells for $16.99.

Just-Bare-Chicken-Patties-Costco
Kirkland Signature Super Premium Vanilla Ice Cream Costco

Yes, Vanilla Ice Cream is this high on our list, but this isn’t no ordinary ice cream. Kirkland Signature’s Vanilla ice cream falls into the “Super Premium” Quality category due to its low overrun and high fat content. 

The Kirkland Signature Vanilla ice cream is delicious and a top tier ice cream at a fantastic Costco price. 2-Half Gallon Tubs sell for $14.99

3. Lasagna - Kirkland Signature

Costco-Lasagna

No list is complete without Costco’s Kirkland Signature Lasagna. Both the lasagna options are great, but I prefer the Italian Sausage and Beef options just because it is broken down into manageable 1.5 portions. 

The lasagna is made with whole milk mozzarella and whole milk ricotta cheeses and is stuffed full of ground beef and Italian sausage. The Kirkland Signature Italian Sausage and Beef Lasagna sells for $16.99.

Costco-Beef-Italian-Sausage-Lasagna
20221113 204319

One of Costco’s best, and I would even say that it’s surprising that it’s not #1 on this list. The Chick-Fil-A copycat Just Bare Nuggets have been the talk of the town and one of the most popular Costco Items again this year. 

They are crispy, flavorful, and all-around delicious. Pick up a 4-pound bag for $17.99.

High Liner Tortilla Crusted Tilapia Costco scaled

This may be one of Costco’s most overlooked items and is one of our absolute favorites here at CFDB. High Liner Tortilla Crusted Tilapia is a unique, tasty, and healthy option that checks off all the boxes. It’s easy to make, packed with flavor, and is guilt-free frozen food. 

If you haven’t tried these yet, pick up a 2-pound box for $15.49, they are amazing.
