The flavor and texture of this Costco seaweed salad may not be for everyone!
I’m reviewing Costco Seaweed Salad today! The Azuma Gourmet Seaweed Salad. This is a product that’s been at my Costco for years however I’ve never picked it up to review.
Other salads from Costco are the Costco Summer Fresh Macaroni Salad, Costco Summer Fresh Greek Penne Pasta Salad, Costco Taylor Farms Dill Pickle Salad Kit, Costco Paisley Farms Four Been Salad, Costco Kirkland Signature Caesar Salad Kit and the Costco Kirkland Signature Quinoa Salad.
Location in Store
You can find this in the refrigerated deli section at Costco near the cheese and meat. The item number is 549137.
I don’t absolutely love this seaweed salad from Costco. The texture is nice and crunchy. I thought the salad would be soggy from the appearance but I’m pleasantly surprised by the crispness! I find the salad a little sweet but enjoy the savory sesame flavor, I also find the salad has a bit of earthy aftertaste I’m not particularly fond of.
My husband enjoys this seaweed salad more than I do so I think there are probably a lot of differing opinions on the taste of seaweed salad! Both of us agree that it gets stuck to your teeth.
The 794 gram container of seaweed salad costs $12.99 Canadian at Costco.
This Costco seaweed salad has a best before date of about a month from the date we purchased it and needs to be kept refrigerated.
There are many ways to use this seaweed salad, as a side dish for any Asian meal, have it with tofu or top a stir-fry bowl with it. An amazing sauce to pair with this is the Costco Kewpie Deep Roasted Sesame Dressing & Marinade.
1/2 of a cup of seaweed salad is 90 calories, four and a half grams of fat, 750 mg of sodium, 11 grams of carbohydrates, three grams of fibre, nine grams of sugar, one gram of protein.
There are just a few simple ingredients with seaweed being the main ingredient. There is some added sugar to the seasoning which I’m not a huge fan of. The seaweed salad is gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan!
Taste: I give it a 3/10 and my husband gives it a 7/10
Give it a try!
If you know you like seaweed you may want to pick this up for a snack or as a side dish! Seaweed itself has a ton of nutrients and vitamins.

Way too sweet! No sugar is needed! I’ll try washing it off….. but not happy about it. Will not buy again
there is a small prints with wwwp65Warnings.ca.gov on the box. It indicated that the product may contain cancr and reprudutive harm. I found these after we had consumed three containers! Wish I knew earlier
That’s a quirk of the State of California. As you know, everything causes cancer or reproductive harm (like seaweed, sugar, or parking garages). But here in California, they TELL us that everything causes cancer or reproductive harm.
I like the idea of seaweed salad. Could you make a different version if it please? I would like it to be more simple, no sugar no sesame seeds please.
I love this seaweed salad. This is all I use on any salad I’m having.
Whenever it’s available I would buy several containers and freeze them.
This salad is amazing! It might even be better with less salt and sugar.
I like seaweed salad, but not this one. The flavour seemed really artificial to me. I ended up composting it.
I absolutely love this stuff, but not my wife.
I find it a little pricy for the size. But probably fairly healthy.
My husband and I had differing opinions on it too!
Too much salt and sugar. Way to ruin vegetables. Salt is the new sugar!
I think you right on that.
Its too sweet for me. When I first open it I was going to do the same. But then I wash it off trying to get rid of this taste and add my own spices. It ended up a bit better but not so much. It feels like a waste if this beautiful seaweed. Why don’t the make no flavor one?
I think food last longer if they are seasoned (preserved in a natural way)…?
