Costco Is Discontinuing These 11 Items Soon

If you take a stroll through your local Costco warehouse, you won't be able to miss the beloved sample carts or all of the huge holiday decorations that are already on display. But there's something else that you might not notice at first glance—the infamous "death star." If you see this asterisk on a price tag, it means that the item won't be restocked once the current stock runs out.

During my most recent trip to Costco, I was shocked by how many death stars I spotted. Some of the impacted products are fall foods, so it's possible that the retailer is rearranging its shelves for the winter season.

In total, I counted 11 asterisks—and with thousands of items in each warehouse, it's definitely possible that I could have missed some. Here are the items that Costco is discontinuing soon, so you can better plan your next shopping list.

Old Tyme Whole Grain White Wheat Bread

Say goodbye to this variety of bread, which is no longer available online. Though this item is on its way out (bread doesn't last very long on store shelves before going stale), two new loaves just landed in the bakery section.


Fannie May S'mores Snack Mix

This Fannie May S'mores Snack Mix was a hit—and Costco members wore their love for it on their social media sleeves. Look no further than the Instagram, Reddit, and even Pinterest posts dedicated to this sweet treat.

Bags of this snack are still available online and at the warehouse, but they may not be for very long given their popularity . . .

The leaves on the trees may still be changing and falling, but Costco is already letting go of several seasonal items, including this one. Luckily, this isn't the only Popcornopolis popcorn available at the warehouse—there's also a 30-bag variety pack of Nearly Naked, Kettle Corn, and Buttered Up! for sale online.


Krusteaz Pumpkin Spice Bread 4 Pack

Of course, it's sad when Costco decides to discontinue an item, but products that are sold in bulk packs can often be enjoyed for weeks or months to come. Case in point: this 4-pack of Krusteaz Pumpkin Spice Bread. Unless you're baking for a huge crowd, four mixes will likely last you until the end of the holiday baking season.

Buy one box of this kimchi pancake mix, and you're set with almost 3 pounds! If you're a fan, consider buying more because this item is marked with the death star. Should you run out, this mix is also available on Amazonbut for more than it costs right now at the warehouse.

These chocolate-covered sticks make a great, quick snack, but the 12-count packs are being discontinued at the warehouse. Costco has a better deal than rival stores like Walmart, where one pack costs around $1.15.


DJ&A Ramen Noodle Snack

Speaking of snacks, this savory one is also leaving warehouses for good when the current supply runs out. Be sure to stock up on these in case a ramen + chips craving pops up—and it may. Just ask the hundreds of people who interacted with this Reddit post about their thoughts.


The Snak Yard Salted Egg Fish Skins

These 5.1-ounce bags of fish skins are another snack that's getting the boot from the warehouse. If you're a fan, grab some for $10.99 on your next Costco run. But all is not lost—they're currently available on Amazon for less than $8.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year. Now the numbers are in, and since January 2021, "food at home" spending has increased 7.4%. Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That! "Anything that's substantially less [than the 7.4% increase] is a deal," said Lempert. "When you

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw

When the coronavirus stay-at-home orders began in March, most people's lives changed in immeasurable ways. At the time, we were bombarded with (admittedly, very helpful) advice on how to cope with anxiety , should we experience it during this time of social distancing and sheltering in place. But with restrictions slowly starting to ease in many parts of the world, there are many people who have seen an increase in anxiety all over again, this time about leaving their homes and reentering society. Posts about people's growing anxiety have been popping up around social media for the past couple of weeks, and it's given rise to the term "reentry anxiety." We wanted to find out exactly what reentry anxiety is, whether it's normal to be experiencing trepidation about leaving your stay-at-home orders, and how to cope if you are feeling anxious.
