Gluten Free Prices at Costco

Posts on Mashup Mom may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosure and disclaimer here.

costco-gluten-free

Last fall, I gathered up some organic product prices at Costco — and they are adding more organic products all the time. Yesterday I walked through and pulled out a few gluten free prices at Costco. As always, Costco pricing and product availability can vary by location and by day — so this is just an idea of the range of pricing for gluten free products at Costco. (Here I just included products labeled gluten free, not naturally GF items such as fruit, veggies, and nuts.)

udis1

See yesterday’s comparison of Udi’s gluten free bread at Costco: The 30 oz bread at Costco has bigger slices, and at $6.99 a loaf it works out to the equivalent of paying $2.80 for the regular 12 oz loaf they sell in grocery stores.

bread

They also sell a shelf stable Essential Baking Co. multigrain gluten free bread — two 17.3 oz loaves for $7.99. (Both Udi’s and Essential Baking are also dairy free.) This is heavy-duty sealed in two individual bags, and the ones I bought yesterday don’t expire til end-April!

namaste

Get a five pound bag of Namaste gluten free Perfect Flour Blend for $8.99. This is supposed to measure cup-for-cup like conventional flour.

vans

Get a 24 count box of Van’s gluten free waffles for $7.99. This is like buying four of the six count boxes they sell in the grocery store, so works out to about $2.00 each for the smaller boxes. (Without coupons, Van’s runs regular price from about $2.79 at Target to $3.99 at Jewel. They put out very few coupons and they’re always print limit one, so this is a great way to stock up in the absence of a sale+coupon.)

taco

This big 24.5 oz jar of Spice Islands taco seasoning is gluten free, and runs $5.69. (It does, however, contain cornmeal — for those of you also avoiding corn.)

lentilpenne

Get three 12 oz boxes of gluten free red lentil penne for $8.79.

kind

And then we have the snacks… so many snacks. All of these were labeled gluten free:

  • 18 ct KIND bars, $17.99.
  • 18 oz Pirate’s Booty, $5.89.
  • 20 ct Caveman bars, $17.79.
  • 20 oz organic ancient grain chips, $6.89.
  • 40 oz Kirkland organic tortilla chips, $4.59.
  • 19 oz Goodie Girl Crunchy Chaos crispy rice chocolate chip cookies, $7.89.
  • 16 oz Van’s The Perfect Ten cracker, $6.99.
  • 28 oz Crunchmaster crackers, $9.89.
  • 18 ct Nogii chocolate caramel bars, $13.79.
  • 44 bags movie theater butter Kirkland microwave popcorn, $9.89.
  • Four 8 ct bags crunchy Rice Rollers, $6.99.
  • 12 oz bag Skinny Pop, $4.79.
  • 20 oz Snapea Crisps, $6.89.

Dollar Tree

  • A question from Bridgitte on the free items with coupons this week: “can you tell me if the dollar tree in Lombard has any of the dollar tree free items or anyone else have found them at there dollar tree”

Gluten free flour

  • On the Abe’s Market gluten free sale, Outlander comments that: “I was at Patel Brothers in Carol Stream recently, and they had 10 lb bag of gluten free flour (lists on the bag what flours it’s made off) for $9.99. I’m sure other Indian stores carry something like that too. Of course, that’s also the best place to buy your Basmati rice and many other things.”
  • And I note :) “I’m a big fan of the ethnic food and produce stores! The difference in the Namaste flour is that it is an all-in-one (with Xanthan gum etc.) that is supposed to measure one-for-one like regular flour — so if you are buying a gluten free flour blend without that, you’ll need also to purchase the Xanthan gum or guar gum separately for most recipes.”

Jewel

  • A clearance find from Brandy: “The Lisle Jewel on Rte 53 has a freezer end cap of expensive Frutarre and Yasso, Breyers, etc on super clearance for like $.60-$1.50. As if I didn’t already have too much ice cream in my freezer…I have more!”

LOFT

  • Seachicago adds to her LOFT clearance finds from yesterday: “Forgot to mention that my LOFT purchase also got me a $25 off $50 full-price-purchase coupon, good next month. I don’t know what threshold you have to hit for that ($50 maybe?), but obviously sale stuff qualifies.”

Mariano’s

  • On the Cracker Barrel coupons, Eva suggests: “You can use these at Mariano’s on Weds with double coupons.”

Amazon gluten free deals — oatmeal and toaster pastries

gfchexoat

Connie comments with a couple of gluten free deals on Amazon. First up: “The Chex gluten free oatmeal is also on sale for $5.96 with an additional 10% off coupon attached to it. My final price for the subscription after the coupon and the 15% subscribe and save discount was $4.56, which is only 75 cents more than ONE box at Jewel or Walmart.” The first three varieties here qualify — so pick your choice of flavors!

Next up, Glutino gluten free toaster pastries. Connie again comments: “Glutino has a 10% coupon on Amazon as well, so if you’ve got a current subscription for their products, cancel it and reorder! It got my gluten free toaster pastry box down below the $3 mark which is an excellent deal (they are like $5 or more in the store!).”

Ounce for ounce — Udi’s gluten free bread at Costco

udis1

Today I bought a 30 oz loaf of Udi’s gluten free bread at Costco for $6.99. This works out per oz as if you’re paying $2.80 for the 12 oz Udi’s loaf they sell in grocery stores, so not bad at all for Udi’s. (I bought this 12 oz bread last week on sale for $3.99 at Ultra Foods with a $1.00 coupon, so it actually worked out to be cheaper at Costco with no coupons.)

namaste-gluten-free-flour

Sriracha Hummus Chicken Strips — Dairy free, gluten free

Posts on Mashup Mom may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosure and disclaimer here.

sriracha-hummus-chicken-strips-header

Welcome back to Sunday Scratchups, your weekly recipe from scratch around grocery store matchups, coupons, and sales. Boneless skinless chicken breast has been on sale all over town over the last couple of weeks, and a new Zaycon chicken event just opened up here in Illinois. So, it’s a good week for chicken recipes. (Be sure also to check out the Spinach and Provolone Stuffed Chicken recipe in this week’s Frugal Homemade for another alternative.)

chicken-two-pounds

You’ll want about two pounds of boneless skinless chicken breast for this recipe — I pulled some Zaycon chicken out of the freezer that ended up being closer to 1.75 lbs, but it’s all good. (Seriously: SO good..!)

Sriracha Hummus Chicken Strips

sriracha-hummus-chicken-strips-ingredients

Ingredients

1.75-2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
1/2 cup hummus (I used roasted garlic)
1.5 Tbsp Sriracha
1.5 cups crushed Rice Chex
Sea salt
Pepper
Olive oil

Directions

cut-chicken-into-strips

Cut your chicken breast into strips, trying to stay as even as possible. Salt and pepper the chicken strips.

breading-chicken

Drizzle the bottom of a metal roasting pan generously with olive oil. On a large dinner plate, mix together hummus and Sriracha. Pour your crushed Rice Chex onto a second large dinner plate. Dredge each chicken strip in the Sriracha hummus, then in the Rice Chex. (If you’re smarter than I am, move your plates to the other side of the chicken so you’re not reaching over raw chicken while you’re doing this — doh.) Arrange chicken strips in single layer in roasting pan.

Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through, flipping chicken halfway through.

Goopy, But So Good

sriracha-hummus-chicken-2

The breading is a little goopy, but that makes no nevermind to the utter juicy deliciousness of this dish! Since you’re not using a lot of Sriracha, it’s not overly spicy; it just has a little bit of a garlicky kick. This makes for a super easy weeknight dinner that is both gluten and dairy free — and Mr. 8 declared it the Best. Chicken. EVER.

juicy-chicken

The hummus and Sriracha infused the chicken with such a good flavor, and the vinegary Sriracha helped keep it juicy. This one is definitely going into our regular recipe rotation!
