Costco shoppers are loving these decadent, irresistible Delici Belgian Chocolate Soufflés!
We’re starting off the week right with a sweet review! Today I’m reviewing the Costco Delici Belgian Chocolate Soufflé. As soon as I saw these at Costco I grabbed them to try because I’ve tried a few Delici products in the past and I always enjoy them. I also have an addiction to chocolate!
Firstly, I want to point something out, if you’ve had restaurant soufflé, the kind that you have to eat right away, that comes out super tall, fluffy and light as air. This is not like that. It’s more of a chocolate lava cake but it’s still 100% delicious.
Other similar products from Costco I’ve reviewed are the Costco Delici Artisan Bonbons, Costco Delici Sea Salt Caramel Mousse, Costco Delici Mini Patisserie Desserts, Costco Dessert Italiano Tiramisu and the Costco Dolce Mia Chocolate Dream Champagne Flutes.

You can find the soufflés in the refrigerated dessert section at Costco, near the fresh pasta and refrigerated appetizers. The item number is 1216789.
After heating the soufflé in the oven it’s nice and warm in the middle even though I left it sitting for at least ten minutes before I started to eat it. My first impression of the soufflé is that it’s absolutely delicious! I had high hopes for it and it delivered.
The soufflé has a rich dark chocolate flavor. It’s more rich than sweet, but it’s sweet enough that I’m confident it’ll satisfy almost all chocolate lovers out there even if they prefer milk chocolate. I sprinkled some icing sugar on my soufflé, but that was more for the visual aspect than to add sweetness.
The cake around the edges is most and pudding-like. The chocolate center is melted chocolate goodness and has the stronger dark chocolate flavor. The flavor of the chocolate center kind of dominates the soufflé, but that’s a good thing!
The package of six soufflés costs $12.99 Canadian. This isn’t bad considering how good they are and that they come in cute little red glass ramekins!
There’s two different ways to heat the souflee, microwave or oven method. I decided to use the oven method, if you also decide to use the oven method, preheat the oven to 320 degrees Fahrenheit, remove the top plastic lid and place the soufflé on a baking tray in the canter of the oven for 10 minutes. Make sure you let it cool for about a minute before devouring it.
The Costco chocolate soufflé needs to be kept refrigerated and the best before date listed is about a month from when we purchased them. The packaging does not recommend freezing the soufflé. I suggest serving them with whipped cream or ice cream. These would be perfect to serve to guests at a dinner party or to have after a nice family dinner at home. I bet kids will go crazy for these.
One Costco Delici Belgian Chocolate Souflee is 420 calories, 26 grams of fat, 39 grams of carbohydrates, three grams of fibre, 32 grams of sugar, five grams of protein and 10 mg of sodium. I’m not surprised by how much calories, fat and sugar are in these after tasting how decadent they are! Although they look small, one is definitely enough to get rid of any sweet or chocolate cravings!
These are not gluten-free or dairy-free as they contain milk, eggs and wheat. They may contain soy, other cereals containing gluten, hazelnuts and pistachios. There are also no artificial ingredients or flavors added. None of the ingredients listed are healthy but chocolate soufflé isn’t really supposed to be a health food, it’s a delicious dessert.
I love these soufflés and would absolutely buy them again. I’m looking forward to eating another one with vanilla ice cream!
Have you tried these? Do you love them too?
