5 Great-Tasting Low-Sugar Snacks You Can Buy at Costco
February 23, 2020
The snack selection at Costco, like everything else at this superstore, is vast: You can buy a three and a half pound bag of Hershey’s Kisses, sure, but you can also find plenty of wholesome options. If you’re on the hunt for low-sugar snacks, know that you have countless options at Costco. From name brand bites to new discoveries, here are five great-tasting low-sugar snacks to try on your next trip.
1. Mott’s Unsweetened Organic Applesauce Cups, $15 for 36 cups
These individual-size cups contain organic apples and water — and that’s it. The 11 grams of sugar per serving comes only from the fruit itself, with no added sugar whatsoever. They’re perfect for kids’ lunchboxes but don’t write them off as a kids-only snack. Sprinkle a cup with a handful of roasted almonds or a pinch each of ground cardamom and cinnamon for an adult twist.
2. Bamboo Lane Organic Crunchy Brown Rice Rollers, $10 for 16
These brown rice bars are a bit like a crunchy version of Rice Krispies treats. Lightly sweetened with brown rice syrup and cane sugar, they have just 3 grams of sugar per serving. Enjoy them on their own or swipe them with peanut or almond butter to add a little protein to your snack.
3. Inno Foods Organic Coconut Clusters with Super Seeds, $9 for 18 ounces
A serving of these crunchy clusters contains 7 grams of sugar, but tastes even sweeter thanks to the natural sweetness of coconut. They’re pretty snackable right out of the bag, but they’re also the perfect thing to sprinkle on yogurt or cottage cheese.
4. Nature’s Garden Omega-3 Deluxe Mix, $25 for 2 26 ounce packs
A serving of this colorful trail mix contains just 8 grams of sugar. It’s a feel-good blend of walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, pistachios, and dried cranberries that also happens to contain 50% of your daily omega-3 fatty acid needs. The cranberries lend a nice balance of sweet and tart to each crunchy handful.
5. Nibmor Organic Dark Chocolate Wild Maine Blueberry Snacking Bag, $20 for 18 ounces
These dark chocolate bites are extra-rich and smooth — and since they’re 72% cacao, a serving (3 squares) contains only 8 grams of sugar. The sprinkle of dried blueberries makes these squares a little more unique than a plain bar, so they’re definitely worthy of being an after dinner treat, too.
