Costco Anahola Granola Review

What makes a good granola? In my opinion, it needs to be not too sweet, a little nutty and have the perfect crunchy, chewy texture! This Anahola Granola from Costco is made in Kauai, Hawaii by a small team and has all the ingredients to make it a stellar product. Is it the best granola you can buy in Hawaii?

We bought this in Kona, Hawaii. We love having fresh fruit, granola, and yogurt as breakfast on vacation so Costco granola was on our shopping list! The item number is 148845.


The granola is pretty plain but tasty. You can definitely taste the coconut so if you don’t like coconut, this isn’t the granola for you. The granola is sweetened with honey so it’s not very sweet, which I like.

It’s mostly just oats!

There aren’t very many walnuts at all and the granola doesn’t have a ton of crunch, the texture is mainly from the oats. There aren’t many big clusters and that’s one of my favorite parts about granola, the big clusters. I like big clusters if I’m snacking on it alone but I find this granola works well for yogurt bowls or just to have milk.

One of my favorite breakfasts to have!

Overall the main ingredient is oats sweetened with a bit of honey, you don’t really notice the sunflower or sesame seeds.


The 678-gram bag of granola costs $8.99 USD which I think is pretty reasonable considering it’s a pretty big bag of granola!

Granola made in Hawaii!


The bag reseals which is nice because it helps keep the granola fresh. The best-before date is about 9 months from when we purchased it. This granola is perfect for fruit bowls, yogurt, smoothies or just to have with some milk.

You can also eat it on its own by the handful like I did a few times but I warn you it’s a bit messy if you’re shoveling it into your mouth! I’m not sure if the granola is available anywhere else besides Hawaii because it’s made in Kauai, Hawaii!



A 1/2 cup serving of granola contains 270 calories, 14 grams of fat, ten milligrams of sodium, 31 grams of carbohydrates, four grams of fiber, 11 grams of sugar and seven grams of protein.

That’s actually a decent amount of protein! I also like that there’s only 11 grams of sugar, that might seem like a lot but some small yogurt cups have 11 grams of sugar in them.

I love the short and sweet ingredients list and really like that they use honey to sweeten the granola rather than sugar. This granola isn’t gluten-free or dairy-free.

Give it a try!

I don’t think this granola is amazing or the best I’ve ever had, but it’s good! I like my granola with a bit more texture and flavor from lots of nuts and dried fruits.
