Vegan ice cream dessert bars made by Canadian brand Daiya Foods are presently accessible at 28 Costco areas in the Pacific Northwest region, with a presentation at Los Angeles Costcos booked for February, and an across the country rollout underway.
Costco now offers the brand’s chocolate-enrobed Classic Vanilla Bean Dessert Bars in a 10-pack for $9.99.
“Plant-based food is evolving and growing as more consumers are making conscious choices to embrace both a healthier planet and a more mindful lifestyle.” Daiya Vice President of Marketing Dan Hua said.
“Expanding our distribution into Costco will help us in our goal to make delicious plant-based foods more accessible to consumers.”
In 2018, Daiya presented its vegan products as coconut milk-based bars in four flavors: lassic Vanilla Bean, Chocolate Fudge Crunch, Espresso Coffee, and Salted Caramel Swirl which are also available at retailers such as Kroger in a 3-pack for $6.79 each.
In 2020 alone, Costco has included a few new vegan dairy options in contrast to its racks, including Chao Creamery vegan cheese (accessible in the Midwest, Southwest, Texas, and Ontario, Canada districts) and Miyoko’s Creamery vegan butter (accessible at Northern California areas).
