Hypothetically, we snack to fill in the gaps between meals and ensure we don’t overindulge. But we all know that’s ridiculous. We snack because we’re bored. We snack because we’re hungry, but not that hungry. We snack because we don’t know what to do with our hands. We snack because, well, we feel like it. For Costco shoppers, this is where things get dangerous; the aisles of a Costco grocery warehouse are stuffed to the brim with snacks—many not healthy with even the most generous definition of the word. To remedy this, we spoke to nearly a dozen experts—dietician nutritionists, personal trainers, nutrition scientists, and more—and asked them a simple question: what are the best healthy snacks at Costco? Here’s what they had to say.
