If you don’t consume meat, or simply enjoy eating plant-based products, you’ll be happy to know that Beyond Meatballs are now available for sale at Costco stores across the country. Beyond Meat, the company that manufactures Beyond Meatballs, announced Thursday that the popular product can now be found at select Costco stores from coast to coast, including some of those in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, California, Massachusetts, Texas, Maryland, Virginia, Florida, Arizona, Colorado, Hawaii and more.

This launch marks the first time Beyond Meatballs will be available at a club store, but they’re not actually the first Beyond Meat product to hit Costco shelves. That honor belongs to the Beyond Burger — a plant-based version of the American classic — which debuted at Costco stores around the country in late 2019.

Like all Beyond Meat products, Beyond Meatballs are made from simple, plant-based ingredients with no GMOs, soy or gluten. They first hit shelves at supermarket chains such as Whole Foods, Harris Teeter and Kroger in September and the suggested retail price for a package of 24 of the meat-free morsels is $9.99. Additionally, each meatball is pre-seasoned, pre-rolled and ready to cook, and the culinary minds at Beyond Meat have already developed recipes with these lil’ guys such as pasta with Beyond Meatballs and pesto.

Need another reason to give Beyond Meatballs a try? As you may have guessed, they’re healthier than their animal-based counterparts. As a matter of fact, when compared to a leading brand of animal-based Italian-style meatballs, Beyond Meatballs have 19 g of plant-based protein, derived from peas and brown rice, 30% less saturated fat and sodium and no cholesterol, antibiotics or hormones.

According to a February 2020 report from Earth Day Network and the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication, more than half of Americans are open to eating more plant-based foods. Though some are a bit confused about exactly what to purchase, many, it seems, are at least experimenting with plant-based alternatives. Reuters reported in July 2019 that Beyond Meat, Inc shares were up over 700% since the company went public in May 2019 and it predicted that revenue will rise more than 170% that year.

So the next time you head to Costco for some terrifyingly huge lobster claws or a wedding cake made entirely of cheese, consider picking up some Beyond Meatballs, too!
