These Beyond Meat Burgers are plant-based burgers from Costco that this meat eater enjoyed!
Today I’m reviewing something I’m excited to write about! The Costco Plant-Based Beyond Meat Beyond Burgers! I do eat meat and so does my husband so we were a little skeptical about these plant-based burgers from Costco but also very curious to see how they tasted!
Other plant-based products I’ve reviewed from Costco are the Smart Sweets Peach Rings, Summer Fresh Summer Dip Pack, Pedon Yellow Lentil Spaghetti, Gardein Meat Free Crispy Tenders, MadeGood Red Velvet Mini Cookies, Lakanto Sweetener and dr.Praegers Organic California Veggie Burgers.
These can be found in the freezer section near the other burgers. The item number is 2338620.
I am so pleasently surprised by these plant-based Beyond Meat Beyond Burgers from Costco! I wasn’t expecting them to be as tasty as they turned out to be. I really love beef burgers but I actually wouldn’t mind having a Beyond Burger every once in a while.
The Beyond Burger doesn’t exactly taste like beef but it does resemble a meat patty! The taste reminds me of the really cheap burgers I would have at school barbecues when I was young. They’re very salty and flavorful and taste more like a sausage patty than a beef patty but I gotta say, I liked the taste!
My husband barbecued the beyond burgers to try them and I really think that probably made them taste better with the little bit of char and crispness on the outside.
I paid $18.99 Canadian for the box of eight really thick burgers! Pretty reasonable for a box of plant-based burgers.
The box recommends thawing the burgers before cooking them but we just barbecued them from frozen and they turned out well.
I would happily serve these plant-based burgers to any of my vegan/vegetarian guests at a barbecue. The best before date is about nine months from the date we purchased the burgers and they need to be kept frozen until use.
One burger is 270 calories, 19 grams of fat, five grams of carbohydrates, three grams of fibre, zero grams of sugar, 20 grams of protein and 340 mg of sodium.
Beyond Meat Beyond Burgers are soy-free, gluten-free and non-GMO! The ingredients aren’t the healthiest but they’re not as bad as I expected. The burgers are enriched with B vitamins as well.
Give it a try!
Even if you’re not following a plant-based diet I recommend trying these out! I was really amazed at how much I liked the flavor.
Have you tried these? What did you think of them?

I do not medicate my guests. If my guests want to take B vitamins, then they will take B vitamins. It is not up to me to decide how much and which kind of fake B vitamins they ingest. Niacin can cause flushing. Methylcobalamin crosses the blood-brain barrier. We all have enough mental probs. When these vitamins are taken by foods that have them naturally, then there is no flushing or chance of overconsumption. Taking fake vitamins is a very personal choice.
I will definitely be eating a burger made of this perhaps a few times a month. Not exactly the healthiest meat substitute in the world but they are downright delicious! I once commented to a singer I was talking with re her lifelong vegetarianism. I asked her how old she was when she embraced vegetarianism. She said she has never even tasted meat. I said REALLY!!! She said, nope, “nothing with a face”!
they are so good they taste like they were done on a bar b que I beet I could give them to my family and they wold love them and think they are meat
If taste is what you’re after, seek no further than Don Lee Farms Chipotle Black Bean Burger at Costco. USD 13.99 will get you a hefty dozen quarter-pounders that imho opinion taste BETTER than regular ground beef. It’s the “frijoles negros” (black beans), kiddo, expertly blended with corn, tomatoes, brown rice, onions, garlic, chipotle and chili peppers, and a dash of red pepper powder. Yum! A tad spicy but still mild. No way am I going back to beef.
Q: Does it taste like beef?
A: It tastes much better.
Yuck! It seemed decent as an in-store sample but my wife wasn’t impressed.
Got a package anyway (C Co #1589003) to give it a decent try.
Cooking it on a fry pan smelled up the kitchen.
It gave off a lot of oil and an odor a bit like a wet dog. I tried mixing it with into some pasta with ragu sause… and tossed it.
The taste might be the same but I’ve not eaten wet dog.
The after-taste lingered in my mouth and fowled the rest of the meal.
I will be returning it.
Lots of whining and preaching here. Don’t like it? Don’t eat it. FMD
Agree. Don’t like it, don’t eat it. Don’t like it, don’t watch it. Don’t like it, don’t listen to it.
I could not find these at Costco and this item number 2338620 does not exist when I type it in on Costco.com.
Do you know if they have stopped carrying them?
They still have them at my local Costco! Where are you located?
#1589003 was the item on my reciept.
That said, we would give it a 1 out of 10 so be warned.
These things are awful. They smell like cheap cat food, and taste like salty cat food. Whoever thinks this tastes like sausage has only ever eaten the cheapest, most filler-packed sausage around. They do not taste like a meat product in the slightest.
They’re also basically oil and pea and rice protein, sat fat is high. It’s not a healthy option in any sense and could only be useful to people who have severe dietary restrictions. It has the same ingredient profile as some pet foods only without the meat. I can’t imagine someone eating one on purpose if any other food option is available.
They’re also expensive.
Fat is not necessarily unhealthy. Trans fat, fat that is chemically modified is unhealthy. Based on the food ingredients it appears relatively healthy to me. I’m not sure what the last four ingredients are, but everything else looks pretty healthy to me…
Of course this IS processed a lot and probably has lots of unhealthy preservatives.
It’s not the best, but don’t be that critical because it’s not that bad, it’s pretty good actually.
I stopped eating meat 2 years ago because I just don’t digest it very well anymore. We love these burgers and they don’t give me a sluggish gut. The taste is great (don’t overcook them). We stock up, especially when they go on sale. We load them up with healthy tomatoes, mushrooms, lettuce and onions.
A nice side effect of going off animal meat was a 50 pound weightloss. My son went off meat and lost 30 pounds.
Wow! That’s awesome! That’s a lot of weight with one change.
Eating beef is destroying our planet – it takes a massive amount of resources to produce beef (de-forested land, water, etc), and has unhealthy by-products (methane, and more). If these things taste just as good, then that’s a bit win right there. If you are already eating a diet of vegetables-only, good for you – this product is not for you. But if we can come up with something to wean joe-sixpack off of his burger-eating habit, that’s a big win. I was blown away by how good they were and I’ve added them to my regular shopping list.
Appreciate your honest review. I’ve had the beyond meat burger and was also pleasantly surprised by the taste as I generally dislike plant based substitutes for burgers. On another note, it would be incredibly unrealistic to expect this burger to not be processed. You cannot expect vegetables to become the texture/taste of meat without this (I’m referring here to the other reviewers who replied to you upset that it is so processed). Overall, its a good burger and a good alternative if you want a vegetarian burger that tastes similar to the real thing.
I’ve read food health information on many of these meat substitute items. Most of the info. states that they are just as unhealthy, (they are highly processed), as real hamburgers, possibly even more unhealthy. I, would need to see a video on exactly what goes into these and how they are made, and how all the ingredients are processed, long before I would ever purchase them, regularly. All highly processed food, are bad for us. Also, being both, plant-based and highly processed, I feel they are highly over-priced!
COME ON, OVER $2.00 PER PATTY, IS SIMPLY OUTRAGEOUS! IT WOULD APPEAR THAT THEY ARE PASSING THESE OFF AS HEALTHY, WHEN THEY ARE NOT, AND TAKING ADVANTAGE OF VEGETARIANS, AND OTHER NON-MEAT EATERS IN THE PROCESS! I, DOUBT VERY MUCH, THAT THEY ARE OF MADE QUALITY INGREDIENTS/MATERIALS, OR BETTER FOR ONE’S HEALTH IN ANY WAY AT ALL! GIMMICKS LIKE THIS, ARE USUALLY MADE OF A WASTE PRODUCT, PRODUCED IN THE PROCESSING OF OTHER FOOD ITEMS! IN OTHER WORDS, MADE OF SOMETHING INFERIOR, WHICH WOULD OTHERWISE, BE EITHER THROWN OUT, OR FED TO ANIMALS!
But, I will at some time, no doubt, at least try one. But, making them a regular item on my everyday eating routine, is highly doubtful!
KEEP ON MAKING THESE GREAT REVIEWS! VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!
And the ones we just bought at Costco are at least 20% smaller than what Costco used to carry. No price reduction.
Ok. Thanks for that. Your description and honest evaluation will resulted myself in ignoring these burgers. The sodium and fat content are high. It certainly doesn’t live up to the assumption or impression these are healthier than the meat or other vegetarian options. Most vegetarians I know bring their own food to parties.
They are not healthy. The second ingredient is canola oil which is one of the worst things you can eat.
