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 August 2022.
They are all available now unless otherwise noted, although some products are sold only online or only in warehouses.
1. Cardigan sweater
Soon, it’ll be time to bundle up again, and this Matty M Ladies’ Boyfriend Cardigan will help you stay cozy. It features long sleeves, ribbed detail and handy front pockets. Choose from green, black, red or brown in sizes ranging from XS to 2X.
Deal alert: If you plan to buy several pieces of clothing or pairs of shoes from Costco soon, consider buying them on the retailer’s website. Currently, if you buy five qualifying clothing or shoe items online (which include this sweater), you will save $20 total; buy 10 or more such items, and you will save $50.
2. Oreo cookies
If you or someone in your household is a big fan of Oreos, try Costco’s big box. It now contains a dozen “Stay Fresh” packs, each with 13 cookies, for a total of 156 Oreos. They are made without high-fructose corn syrup.
3. Pantene Essential Botanicals
Both products come in 38.2-ounce bottles, so you won’t run out any time soon, and each has a handy pump for easy use in the shower.
4. Cuisinart food processor
Raise your cooking game with this Cuisinart Elemental 8-Cup Food Processor. This elegant appliance comes with reversible shredding and slicing discs, and offers convenient rubberized controls and an integrated food tube. It’s also BPA free, and its many removable parts are dishwasher-safe.
5. Febreze air refresher variety pack
Pets, food odors and more can leave your home smelling less than fresh. This four-pack of Febreze air refresher ensures you’ll always have a solution no matter what the smelly cause. Each handy spray bottle has its own distinct scent, including Linen & Sky, Hawaiian Aloha, Ocean and a Lemon Fresh scent meant specifically for kitchen-odor elimination.
6. Boot socks
These soft and pretty Bearpaw ladies’ boot socks don’t have to be worn with boots, but if the shoe fits, wear it. They’re made of marled yarn, and come in a pack of four pairs, all of slightly different designs, and you choose whether you prefer black or blue hues.
The socks are machine-washable and fit women’s shoe sizes 5-10.
7. Ice-cream cart playset
Do the little ones in your home always scream for ice cream when the ice-cream truck chugs by? Now, they can run their own with this ice-cream truck playset from Play-Doh Kitchen Creations. The cute little play truck comes with 37 tools, 14 cans of Play-Doh, pretend cones and sundae cups, and more. Best of all: No melty mess.
8. Eddie Bauer kids 3-in-1 jacket
Plan now to get your kids or grandkids ready for cooler weather with this Eddie Bauer Kids’ 3-in-1 jacket. It comes in pink/turquoise and purple shades as well as blue shades and red/gray, and consists of an outer hooded jacket paired with an internal micro-fleece jacket, so you can adjust the kids’ gear according to the forecast.
Deal alert: If you plan to buy several pieces of clothing or pairs of shoes from Costco soon, consider buying them on the retailer’s website. Currently, if you buy five qualifying clothing or shoe items online (which include this jacket), you will save $20 total; buy 10 or more such items, and you will save $50.
9. Family saga
Jamie Ford’s new novel, “The Many Daughters of Afong Moy,” mixes history with speculative fiction.
Afong Moy was a real person, the first Chinese woman known to come to the U.S., who became famous as a kind of carnival attraction in the 1830s simply because of her background — her bound feet, traditional dress and Chinese language skills were enough to draw paid audiences. According to Costco Connection magazine, Ford’s novel “not only portrays how inherited trauma can live in multiple generations, it also explores whether there is a way for descendants to ever resolve it.”
The book was published Aug. 2 and is now for sale at most Costco warehouses.
