Are you tired of your usual berry jams and want to try something new? The Costco Crofter’s Peach Premium Spread offers a different flavor with less sugar than most jams. For toast and jam fans looking to try a different combination, this spread might be worth checking out!
Toast and jam is kind of a treat food for me because I love it with lots of butter. I generally stick to raspberry jam but I do love peaches and anything peach flavored so I picked up this Costco Crofter’s Peach Premium Spread to try.
Other products from Costco similar to this are Last Mountain’s Old Fashioned Raspberry Jam, Bonne Maman Strawberry Jam, Kirkland Signature Maple Syrup, Pisti Spreadable Pistachio Cream, Vonbee Passion Fruit Honey Puree, Kirkland Signature Organic Strawberry Spread, Vonbee Honey, Apple & Cinnamon Tea Base, Vonbee Honey, Citron & Ginger Tea Base and the Costco Kirkland Signature Natural Peanut Butter.

The peach spread can be found in the aisle with the other jams, syrup and pancake mix. The item number is 1626421.
Although the spread has less sugar than jam I immediately notice how sweet it is, I find the sweetness takes away from the peach flavor. The flavor of peach is mildy noticeable, I taste more sugar than peach. To really taste the peach flavor I had to add extra spread on my toast.
I like the combination of the spread with a fairly generous amount of butter I had on my toast. The sweetness of the spread and the richness of the butter goes perfectly together.
The 660-milliliter jar of spread costs $6.49 Canadian, which isn’t bad for a big jar of organic jam but isn’t as cheap as other jams you can buy.
The best-before date listed on the spread is 14 months from the date it was purchased and needs to be refrigerated after opening. This is good for toast but I think if it were combined with peanut butter in a sandwich the peanut butter would totally overpower the flavor of the spread.
I might use this as a spread to go on plain scones or in some baking.
One tablespoon of spread is 30 calories, zero grams of fat, eight grams of carbohydrates, zero grams of fibre, seven grams of sugar, less than a gram of protein and five milligrams of sodium. The amount of sugar is less than Smucker’s Peach Jam.
The ingredients list is really simple, basically organic peaches and cane sugar which is pretty normal for a jam or spread. The jar states there is 33% less sugar than jam and 50% fruit content.
Nutrition: 2/10 (Points for organic peaches being the first ingredient and having less sugar).
Give it a try!
I’m not sure I’ll switch from being a raspberry or strawberry jam person to a peach spread person, but I enjoyed trying it!
