Costco shoppers get used to seeking out their old favorites — a juicy rotisserie chicken, a pallet of paper towels, enough coffee to fuel an entire dorm. But because the warehouse club’s selection is so huge, it’s easy to forget that Costco adds new products all the time.
There’s no reason to skip over the classic Costco items, but why not scoop up something new? Here’s a look at some of the items that are new to Costco in October.
They are all available now unless otherwise noted, although some products are sold only online or only in warehouses.
Vitamix Venturist 1200 blender
If you’ve been thinking of splurging on a top-shelf blender, this might be the time to mix it up. The Vitamix Venturist 1200 features a built-in timer, plus variable speed and pulse controls. It’s available in three colors, and the Costco package includes a 20-ounce blending cup and an 8-ounce blending bowl.
And now’s the time to buy, as it’s $80 off through Oct. 17.
Scented candle set
As winter approaches, the flickering warmth and subtle scent of a fragrant candle are even more appreciated. Stock up for the snowy season with this new four-pack of 12-ounce Bellevue Luxury Candles, each in a decorated jar with its own metal embossed lid.
The four scents are vanilla butter, chai cardamom, blackberry sage and ocean moss.
Smart LED outdoor string lights
The coronavirus pandemic inspired many homeowners to upgrade their backyards, turning them into fresh-air living rooms with comfortable furniture and amenities. Deck your outdoor halls with these Atomi Smart LED Color String Lights.
You can customize the colors and control the lights with a smartphone app, or with Google Assistant or Alexa. The lights are available in three lengths: 24 feet, 36 feet and 48 feet.
Halloween cookie decorating kit
Why limit cookie decorating to Christmas? This two-pack of Bakery Bling Halloween Cookie Kits includes a total of 32 pre-baked pumpkin and ghost cookies (16 per kit), plus icing and glittery sugar to deck them out boo-tifully.
Lavender bubble bath
Soak away the day’s worries in a bubbly tub. The Honest Co. Bubble Bath in Truly Calming Lavender promises to moisturize, clean and calm you all at once.
This is Costco, of course, so it comes in a two-pack of 17-ounce bottles — you’re unlikely to run out anytime soon.
Trisha Yearwood’s new cookbook
Country-music star Trisha Yearwood isn’t just an internationally known singer. Her cooking show, “Trisha’s Southern Kitchen,” recently won an Emmy for outstanding culinary program, and she’s just published another cookbook.
“Trisha’s Kitchen: Easy Comfort Food for Friends & Family,” was written with her sister, Beth Yearwood Bernard. Trisha Yearwood and her husband, singer-songwriter Garth Brooks, helped test the recipes.
The cookbook is now available in most Costco warehouse locations.
Beatles book with exclusive photos
If you’ve got to get the Beatles into your life, Costco can help. A new book, “The Beatles: Get Back,” tells the story of the iconic band’s final album, “Let It Be,” through the band’s own words, as taken from 120 hours of candid recorded conversations.
It’s also filled with photos, many taken by Linda McCartney, the late wife of Beatle Paul McCartney. And when you buy the book at Costco, it comes with an exclusive extra — a pullout photo of each member of the Beatles.
The book will be available in Costco warehouses starting Oct. 11.
