Today I’m reviewing the Universal Bakery Aussie Bites from Costco. The Aussie Bites are an item that Costco has been carrying for quite some time and a lot of people seem to enjoy them!

Some items from Costco that are similar to the Aussie Bites are the Costco E&C’s Heavenly Hunks, the Costco Universal Bakery Keto Bites and Costco Universal Bakery Paleo Bites.

Location in Store

You can find the Aussie Bites in the aisle with the jam, peanut butter, crackers and boxed cookies at Costco. Sometimes they’re also in the middle of the store. The item number is 891394.

Taste

The Costco Aussie Bites by Universal Bakery have rolled oats, dried apricots, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, honey, coconut, quinoa and chia seeds. They’re packed full of nutritious ingredients and are quite flavorful. The coconut flavor isn’t very strong if you’re not a fan of coconut.

Aussie Bites remind of a little muffin, a soft granola bar or a healthy cookie. There’s a good amount of sweetness coming from the honey, apricots and raisins. Oddly enough they taste a bit salty, soft, crumbly. They have a bit of crunchiness from the seeds as well as the texture is a bit chewy.

The chia seeds can get stuck in your teeth so be mindful of that if you’re enjoying these. The texture of the Aussie bites is a bit dry and crumbly however but they still make for a tasty snack or breakfast.

Cost

The cost is $12.99 Canadian for the 850 gram bin of Aussie Bites. There are roughly 24 Aussie Bites in the bin I purchased.

I feel like they’re slightly expensive, but not overly pricey considering all the ingredients are organic and if you just ate one a day, a bin would last you quite a long time.

Convenience

The Aussie Bites come in a resealable plastic container and the best before date is about two months from the date I purchased them.

They’re a convenient snack or breakfast. I freeze my Aussie Bites as soon as I buy them and they stay fresh. Aussie bites are great to bring to school or work for a mid morning or mid afternoon snack.

If you can just eat one that’s not bad! Eight grams of sugar and seven grams of fat might seem high for a few folks considering how small these are.

  1. If Aussie bites are placed in the fridge and over 8 months have passed since the expiration date, are they safe to eat?

  2. I love these little Aussie bites. I just had to for lunch ,And it filled me very satisfying and pack with nutrition. I feel that 260 cal is not bad for all the nutrition that you’re getting, plus it did fill me

    • I purchased from Sam’s Club and Costco and found small pieces of nut shells in the containers. Not a good thing for your teeth.

  3. Thanks for the info as I can’t seem to make the Costco flyer to get any bigger so I could what was in them. I might buy these too. As I see that there are some stuff that are in these muffins I should not have but I will try them and if they make me go to the bathroom to much I will have to pass them on to someone else. As I can’t use Flax seeds, chia seeds & Quinoa as if I eat too much at once I will be in the washroom most of the day.
    Thanks for telling us what is in them!
