Costco Anthon Berg Liquor-Filled Chocolates Review

Of all the chocolates Costco carries around the holidays, these Anthon Berg Liquor-Filled Dark Chocolates are probably the most unique/memorable. I’m not a big fan of the combination of liquor and sweets, but I think the package of tiny bottle-shaped chocolates is really neat and well done. I don’t score presentation/appearance for the items I review, but these chocolates would get a 10 if I did!

Location in Store

You can find these liquor-filled chocolates in the seasonal aisle with all the Christmas chocolates and packaged cookies. The item number is 293701.

Each chocolate is shaped like a bottle.


The chocolates seem to be full of the actual liquor. You can taste the alcohol and feel it in your mouth. The stems of the bottles are solid dark chocolate, but the bodies are hollow and contain a good amount of liquor. The chocolate seems to be the same for all of the different liquors, but it’s hard to determine how good the chocolate is as the alcohol flavor is strong.

There are eight different kinds of liquor-filled chocolates.

Licor43 – I found this liquor pretty mild and smooth and it paired well with the chocolate. I’m not sure how to describe it beyond that. It reminded me slightly of a very mild tequila or vodka, but it’s fairly unique.

Matusalem Gran Reserva The rum is fairly strong, but pairs well with the chocolate.

Remy Martin Strong cognac flavor. I’m personally not a cognac fan, but it seemed to pair well with the chocolate.

Southern Comfort – The liquor is fairly sweet and somewhat strong. It’s not bad, but I liked some of the other chocolates better.

There’s quite a bit of liquor in each chocolate!

Cointreau – Not as strong an orange flavor as I was hoping for, but still a good combination.

The Famous Grouse – Strong whisky flavor.  

Sobieski – Strong vodka flavor. Personally chocolate and vodka seem like an odd pairing to me. 

Drambuie – Spicy with a strong herbal flavor. I’d never had Drambuie before, but I’m guessing that’s what it tastes like! It seemed to go fairly well with the chocolate.

Ready to try!

The Conitreau is my personal favorite as I felt the flavor of the liquor complemented the chocolate well.

I think all of the combinations except for the vodka make sense and I can see how people who like the liquors would love the chocolates. Everything seems to be very good quality, from the packaging to the chocolate to the liquors themselves.

Produced in Poland.


The price has gone up quite a bit. In 2021 I paid $22.99 Canadian for the box of 64 liquor-filled chocolates. In 2023 I paid $26.99 Canadian.

The box comes with eight of each of the eight flavors of chocolates. The back of the package says the assortment may vary, but this seems hard to believe given how nicely packaged they are. I would be surprised if other boxes contained different numbers of the different kinds.

Very fancy looking!


Each liquor-filled chocolate is individually packaged and they come neatly arranged in a convenient box.

Bite, drink and enjoy.

The best before date is 11 months from the date we purchased them, I recommend storing them in cool. dry, place so they don’t melt. They’re made in Poland

All different kinds of liquor!



Two chocolates contains 160 calories, nine grams of fat, 17 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, 15 grams of sugar, less than one gram of protein and zero milligrams of sodium.

That’s pretty much the amount of calories, fat and sugar I’d expect to see in two chocolates filled with alcohol.

Nutrition Facts


These aren’t at all healthy, the first ingredient is sugar and then of course they’re filled with alcohol. They are gluten-free and may contain milk.

Remember they’re not safe for kids as they do have actual alcohol in them so store them in a spot where the little ones can’t get into them.

Image of the ingredients list from the back of the box.


Taste: 8/10 for the chocolate (see below comment)

Cost: 7/10

Convenience: 10/10

Nutrition: 0/10


Give it a try!

People’s opinions on these will vary mostly based on whether they like boozy desserts and these specific liquors. For the right person, I could see these being a 9 or a 10 for taste.

Have you tried these? What did you think?

  1. My papa(grandpa) used to bring these home for Christmas every year (35 years ago) and I have been bringing home to my family every Christmas since 2003- brings the spirit of Christmas up a notch for me anyway and the liquor and chocolate do pair very well except maybe like the author pointed out the vodka- those little vodka filled bottles always seem to be the last to go:)

  2. I was given Anthon Berg Chocolate liquor as a gift a few years back and would like to purchase my own. I have called Costco and they stated that it is no longer available in the U.S. can someone please clarify for me where to buy other than Ebay or Amazon?

    • Hello Julie – I would agree with what you heard. I called a local Costco store in NC and heard the lady say she did not know what it was. LOL. The other option is to call someone in HQ in Kirkland and confirm for sure. That is a bummer. I did see it on Amazon but it is twice the price what Costco used to sell the 64 pack for. So unless you crave it that much I would pass. I also enjoy Asbach brand liqueur filled versions but these I was able to buy in Germany. The ship to US cost is prohibitive.

    • It was in stock 2 weeks ago at the Santa Rosa, CA store. It has been sold there fro the last number of years. May still be….I just haven’t looked since then: when I bought 2. My wife and I LOVE these.

    • Hi Julie
      These lovely chocolates are still available here in Ontario, February 18 2024 just bought another today- would you like me to mail some to you?
      I empathize with you wanting this and it’s not so available!

    • Hi Julie, you can purchase them on eBay for about 21.00 + shipping 12.00. I just ordered for my Son-in-law for Father’s Day next month. I think Costco only carries them during Christmas. The chocolates are a great price however as you can see the shipping is what brings the price up. They are definitely worth it! Good luck!🕊️💐

  3. Does Plainfield, IL Costco store have Anthon Berg Liquor-filled dark chocolates 64 bottles currently in stock? I would like to purchase these as Christmas gifts & please advice Costco price and availability in Plainfield, Bolingbrook or Orland Park, IL.
    Thank you.

  4. I have celiac disease, so am very careful to read ingredient lists and warnings on everything I eat. Anthon Berg has no ‘May contain’ warning about gluten, and I have enjoyed their chocolates for many years. I became very ill last year, and the only thing I ate which could have been the cause was the Sobieski vodka liqueur chocolate. Gluten does not pass through the distillation process, but somehow this chocolate was contaminated.

    I emailed the company in Denmark but had no response. I am concerned as the box has no warning of possible cross-contamination with gluten, only with milk and nuts. Needless to say I have not eaten them since!

    • Only place I have seen them is Amazon and they are way more expensive. Disappointed that I can’t find these at any of the 3 Costco’s I go to.

  5. I received this for a gift 4 days ago and I’m down to under 10 chocolates left. Overall I found the chocolate and the alcohol combinations to be very good in terms of balance. Keep in mind I’m not an everyday consumer of liqueur or any alcohol for that matter daily,but I certainly enjoy a hearty drink or a strong imported beer for sure. For the price I might even buy a couple for gifts or stocking stuffers. The grade I would give this is a solid 8.5 and I would recommend it for a gift.

  6. I used to get these every year at Costco Mississauga.
    But then moved to Montreal. Although we have Costco s here, not verything is the same! I have been hunting all over Costco for these here but nothing…am so disappointed.

    Hey want to be a reviewer too. I shop at Costco often!!

    • Costco in Terrebonne has them starting in November until Christmas. Bought them in November but when I went there today, Dec 22 they were sold out.
