Since 1995, Costco has used its Kirkland products to attract shoppers and build a reputation for quality and low prices. The warehouse club often introduces a new Kirkland product when its buyers or executives believe a brand isn’t selling at the lowest possible price. They’ve introduced quite a few Kirkland Signature products this year alone, with more to come. Here are some of Costco customer’s favorite Kirkland Signature products introduced so far in 2019.
10. Street-Taco Kits
If you’re a big fan of street food, then you’ll probably love Costco’s street-taco kits. There’s the original kit, which includes enough ingredients to make 12 tacos. Included in the kit are corn and flour tortillas, grilled seasoned chicken, salsa, fresh shredded veggies, Mexican-blend cheddar cheese, cilantro-lime crema, and lime wedges. There’s also the chicken street-taco kit, which includes enough ingredients to make 36 tacos! It also contains corn and flour tortillas, grilled seasoned chicken, salsa, fresh shredded veggies, Mexican-blend cheddar cheese, cilantro-lime crema, and lime wedges.
9. Organic Brown Rice & Quinoa
Kirkland Signature Organic Brown Rice & Quinoa is the perfect choice for when you need to whip up a quick side dish for dinner. It microwaves in just 90 seconds and offers 8 grams of complete protein per serving along with 15 percent of the recommended daily allowance of iron. Plus, it’s gluten-free and vegan-friendly. According to Costco’s website, Kirkland Signature Organic Brown Rice & Quinoa contains organic ancient grain blend brown rice, quinoa, amaranth, and garlic. Each box has six 8.5-ounce packages and sells for less than $10.
8. Boxed Wine
Costco customers love Kirkland Signature liquors, so it should be no surprise that its Cabernet Sauvignon boxed wine also has fans excited. This deep red Cabernet Sauvignon is made with California grapes. It comes in a 3-liter box with four full bottles of wine, and each bottle is supposed to keep for 30 days after opening. We’re not sure how much it costs, but if it’s priced anything like Costco’s other alcoholic beverages (less than $22 a bottle for their spiced rum, Canadian whiskey, Anejo tequila, and small-batch bourbon), we’re sure it’ll be very affordable.
7. Praline Pecans
According to Better Homes & Gardens, these sweet treats are so tasty you could end up eating the whole two-and-a-half-pound bag (or tub, depending on which one you purchase) in one sitting. They don’t recommend doing that, however. What they do recommend is using them to dress up a traditional pecan pie this Thanksgiving. One recipe they suggest trying is the Chocolate Pecan Pie with Kahlua. “The unstoppable flavor combo of coffee and chocolate makes this pecan pie one of our favorites,” Better Homes & Gardens said on its website. “Get it guest-ready with a garnish of melted chocolate and toasted pecan halves, and serve it up with a scoop of coffee-flavor ice cream.”
6. Organic Dark Chocolate
Here’s another new sweet treat from Kirkland Signature. And, the best part is they’re rich and sweet but don’t have a ton of sugar! These organic dark chocolate Belgian Thins don’t contained any refined or artificial ingredients either. What is in them is fresh, flaky almonds and unsweetened coconut. To really enjoy these, The Kitchn suggests keeping a bag of them in the freezer so you can have a cool treat anytime of the day or evening.
By the way, these dark chocolate treats come in 17.6-ounce bags and sell for just $9.
Okay, so you are probably asking yourself, “What the heck is kombucha?” According to WebMD, it’s a fermented tea with tons of health benefits. Advocates claim that it aids in digestion, wards off heart disease and high blood pressure, and even possibly prevents cancer. It’s nothing new though. In fact, it’s been around for nearly 2,000 years. However, sales in the United States are just now on the rise. As such, Kirkland Signature has introduced its own kombucha. It’s available in 16-ounce bottles and includes ingredients like lemon zest and ginger. There are several different varieties, so the ingredients will vary depending on the blend you choose. By the way, Kirkland Signature kombucha is 100 percent organic and 100 percent raw.
4. Grass-Fed Beef Patties
This summer, Costco introduced 100 percent grass-fed beef patties. These 1/3 burgers come in packs of 15 and have been raised without hormones or antibiotics. They’re also low in fat (80 percent lean, 20 percent fat). Unfortunately, depending on where you live, you may not be able to find these burgers. According to a review left on Costco’s website, the patties were discontinued at one of the warehouse’s in Syracuse, NY. In fact, under the “Product Details” listing Costco says that the patties may not be available in all zip codes.
3. Cheese Flights
According to an article published by Better Homes & Gardens, Kirkland Signature recently released a pre-packaged 1.8-pound cheese flight. It comes with five wedges of cheese, including Monteau alpine, Cabot clothbound cheddar, red wine soaked goat cheese, a 12-month-aged Manchego, and a dijon herb Fontina. It also comes with wine pairing suggestions (Pinot Noir, Malbec, Tempranillo, Rioja, and Chablis) and beer pairing suggestions (Amber and alpine, hoppy ale and cheddar, Belgian ale and goat cheese, brown ale and Manchego, and hefeweizen and Fontina) as well. The cheese flights sell for $19.99 and are available nationwide.
2. Medium Roast Specialty Blend Arabica Coffee
Move over Starbucks; there may be a new coffee king in town. Kirkland Signature Medium Roast Specialty Blend Arabica Coffee is super fresh, and, as its name suggests, is made with 100 percent arabica beans. It comes in 40-ounce bags and sells for $11. That 40-ounce bag should last you several weeks and is a much better deal than a daily cup of coffee from Starbucks. In fact, you could possibly be spending thousands of dollars a year at Starbucks! Don’t believe us? If your coffee habit is anything like CNBC writer Shawn Carter‘s, you could be spending over $2,000 annually! That $11 bag of Kirkland Signature Medium Roast Specialty Blend Arabica Coffee is looking better all the time isn’t it, LOL!
1. Organic Fruit and Vegetable Pouches
These no-sugar-added organic fruit and vegetable pouches are a great way to help get in your recommended 1 1/2 to 2 cups of fruit and 2 to 3 cups of vegetables per day. Plus, they come in delicious flavors like apple, mango, carrot, strawberry, and peach. And, they’re gluten-free! The Kitchn recommends eating them right out of the pouch, using them in baking, topping your oatmeal with them, or using them as a replacement to sugary jam.
By the way, you can get a 3.2 oz, 24-count pouch for $11.
