This Surprising Costco Product Is On Many Shopper's 'Top 5' List

Costco manages to always shine as a brand. The warehouse club has a robust operation that is currently active in eight countries. As noted on their website, they are "the recognized leader in our field, dedicated to quality in every area of our business and respected for our outstanding business ethics." 

The store is also known for offering its members high-quality products at affordable rates. Redditors love the brand so much that they even have a full thread dedicated to discussing their favorite items from the store. The answers are fairly varied, with one person writing that they especially love the Kirkland brand granola bars, bakery muffins, Kinder's Lemon Pepper Seasoning, Sectioned Raw Chicken Party Wings, and more. Another Costco fan mentioned that they love buying walnuts, Greek yogurt, organic bananas, and more in bulk from the store. And yet another simply professed their love for the store-bought steak over and over.

The most popular option, though, is a really unexpected one for a grocery chain.

Costco gas is the most popular pick

This may come as a surprise but it's actually gasoline that appears frequently on Costco shoppers lists. Many think that fueling up their cars and other vehicles at Costco offers a great value for the price and deserves a rightful place as one of the top five best items to get from the store. One shopper wrote on Reddit, "Gas is definitely the best deal, and definitely pays for my membership by just saving me like $2.50 every week when I fill up."

Another customer agreed, sharing that they find Costco gas to be rather affordable, too: "Honorable mention to gasoline. Not my favorite item per se but it is definitely the one I save the most money on. Pretty much pays for my membership."

Costco takes pride in all its products, and the description for Kirkland Signature Gasoline is no different. As noted on their website, it's "tested in the lab to ensure quality and guaranteed to perform, our gasoline is formulated with powerful deposit control additives that deep clean engine components to restore the best possible engine performance and keep it running like new." Next time you need to fill up, Costco could be great pit stop for this reason too.
