Everyone loves pizza. It’s a fan favorite, a crowd pleaser, a home run, all around winner winner chicken dinner…call it what you like…Costco pizza tastes great and is priced right. Grab a pizza en route. You can ask for it to be kiddie cut (or double cut as others call it) so the pieces are extra small, a little easier for kids to eat on the beach! And you don’t lose a whole piece to the sand if it gets dropped.
Unfortunately you can’t order pizza ahead…you’ll have to go to the food court and order it…but you can grab the rest of your picnic inside the store while it cooks!
Little kids may need some help with these…but everyting you need is in the kit (just grab a plastic fork from the food court)…and we happen to think that tacos anytime, anywhere are A-OK…so if you’re on the same page…consider the Costco Street Taco kits a delicious beach picnic option!

There are a few cheese and charcuterie options at Costco – often you can find combinations that include olives and even crackers. This Italian Charcuterie Platter from oberto has two types of salame, two types of provolone and green olives. Grab a baguette, or don’t. This is healthy, and a great option for all the Keto and Paleo folks out there. And if your beach picnic involves a glass of wine, this is highly recommended!
Oberto Specialty Meats Charcuterie Platter is Costco Number 1392264 and Retails for $10.99 for 12.3oz.
Nothing is more essential at the beach than some salty, crunch chips! We are fans of Kettle Chips, but if you’re feeding a whole crew the individually bagged mixture from Lays will be a good option for passing out to a group. Either way, chips are highly recommended on our Costco beach picnic list.
Healthy and fresh and easy to grab and go…there are loads of choices that include all the fixins and dressing! For the a Costco beach picnic, we suggest picking salads that come in a clamshell (no pun intended lol!) versus a bag…but we’re certainly not above eating right out of the bag!
