Costco David’s Cookies Cranberry Pistachio Biscuits Review

These David’s Cookies Cranberry Pistachio Biscuits are new to Costco for the 2023 holiday season. They come in a festive-looking metal tube. If that’s not enough to convince you to buy them and you want to know more about the cookies inside the tube, you’ve come to the right place!

Location in Store

These cookies are located in the Christmas seasonal aisle at Costco. The item number is 1746134.

Taste

These aren’t amazing but they’re good. They kind of remind me of the Royal Dansk Shortbread cookies but with cranberries and nuts. The biscuits have a bit of sweetness but not a ton.

The cookies aren’t very large.

They aren’t the best shortbread cookie I’ve had. They’re hard and crisp and not very crumbly. They also don’t melt in your mouth. The cranberries and pistachios aren’t really noticeable, the main flavor is coming from the shortbread.

The cookies are hard and crisp.

Cost

These biscuits cost $6.99 USD or $9.99 Canadian for the 264 gram tube of cookies. The cost isn’t unreasonable and is cheaper than some of the other Christmas cookies Costco is offering.

The cookies come packaged in a plastic tube.

Convenience

The packaging is pretty unique! The cookies come in a long tube and then the cookies are packaged in two packs of 11 in the tube. The tin is reuasble but it has the David’s logo, nutrition facts and ingredients all over it. The best before date is five months from the date I purchased it.

Each package has 11 cookies.

Since they come in a nice festive tin they’d make a nice gift for a teacher, daycare worker or colleague. They’d go well with tea or coffee as a mid-morning or afternoon snack! I don’t think kids would love these because they’re not super sweet or flavorful but shortbread fans will enjoy them.

Nutrition

Calories

Two cookies contain 120 calories, six grams of fat, 60 milligrams of sodium, 15 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fiber, six grams of sugar and one gram of protein.

That’s not a ton of calories, fat or sugar for two cookies but they’re also not the biggest cookies. In my opinion they’re quite small.

Nutrition facts.

Ingredients

The ingredients are simple which I think is important when you’re buying a pretty plain shortbread cookie like this, a ton of additional preservatives and additives is unnecessary. The main ingredients are flour, pistacios sugar, butter, cranberries, cream, salt and vanilla.

The cookies contain milk, tree nuts, and wheat. They may contain eggs, milk, soy, wheat, peanuts and tree nuts.

Scoring

Taste: 6.5/10 Not bad just not amazing!

Cost: 8/10

Convenience: 10/10

Nutrition: 3/10 I really love the simple, whole ingredients used.

Overall

Give it a try!

Both my mom and I thought these were just okay. My mom admitted she was kind of sick of shortbread due to eating a ton of it recently and I admit I’m not the hugest fan of shortbread. I have no complaints about the cookies though, they just wouldn’t be my top choice.

  1. The first two were just okay. But then I started liking them more and more. By the time I finished the can, I had become addicted. I regret having only bought one can. When I went back to buy more from Costco, they were out of them….I guess they’re a seasonal item. Sure hope Costco brings them back next year.

  2. A coworker gave this as a Christmas gift. I’ve been wishing for more and have searched the internet to see where I can buy them. Glad to know they’re at Costco. They’re great cookies. I don’t normally like store-bought cookies but these I couldn’t stop eating. They’re just right. Not sweet, not too much fat and the right bite size too. I’ll definitely look for them at Costco next time.

  3. I thought they were amazing! Not too sweet and not a lot of unnecessary ingredients. They sold out in my location very quickly. My only regret was only purchasing 2 cans. Hope they return next year.
