Costco Aussie Bites are a satisfying, somewhat healthy snack!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
One Aussie Bite is 130 calories, seven grams of fat, 90 mg of sodium, two grams of fibre, two grams of protein, eight grams of sugar and 16 grams of carbohydrates.
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.
The Aussie Bites from Costco contain oats and milk and may contain wheat, soy, eggs, peanuts and tree nuts. They have a ton of healthy ingredients in them and just a few unhealthy ingredients like cane sugar and canola oil.
Give it a try!
Overall, they’re like dry miniature muffins that are loaded with seeds and dried fruit. Pretty tasty and satisfying for a somewhat healthy snack.
