Sweet caramel and coffee are combined to make this decadent Costco dessert that looks as if it came right from an Italian restaurant. The Costco Dessert Italiano Caramel Macchiato is a unique mousse-like version of a popular caffeinated beverage. Is this worth picking up for your next dinner party?
I used to be a caramel macchiato addict. Every shift as a new nurse I’d treat myself to one from Starbucks and if I was doing a 16-hour shift I’d upgrade to a venti to treat myself. I love the combination of bitter coffee and sweet caramel and enjoyed the beverage both hot and iced.
When I saw the Dessert Italiano Caramel Macchiato desserts at Costco, I knew I had to try them.
Other desserts from Costco that seem similar are the Costco Dessert Italiano Tiramisu, Costco Delici Chocolate S’mores Souffle, Costco Marie Morin Creme Brulee, Costco Marie Morin Caramel Flan, Costco Delici Belgian Chocolate Souffle and the Costco Delici Sea Salt Caramel Mousse.
Location in Store
You can find these desserts in the refrigerated section in the bakery, with all the cakes. The item number is 1458378.
I think these are okay, my husband likes them more than I do and both my mom and dad really like them. I find they’re a little sweet for my liking, which is surprising because I have such a major sweet tooth.
There’s a plain cream mousse layer on top with super sweet caramel drizzle in the middle and then there’s a coffee-caramel mousse on the bottom. The mousse on the bottom tastes exactly like tiramisu mousse and has a strong hint of alcohol as well as coffee flavor.
The caramel in the middle is super sweet as well as the plain cream mousse on the top. I find these really rich! They look a little small to begin but because they’re so decadent you wouldn’t want them any bigger.
For six caramel macchiato desserts in the package the cost is $13.99 Canadian. This may seem really expensive for six small desserts but you do get six little glass mugs that the desserts come in.
The little glass mugs the desserts are packaged in would be great for espresso or to add to a child’s tea party set. The best before date listed on the dessert is about 3 weeks from the date we purchased the desserts.
The caramel macchiato desserts need to be kept refrigerated and the package specifically states not to freeze them. I think they’d be great for a dinner party or to have as a treat at home for a more indulgent dessert!
One glass of dessert is 260 calories, 11 grams of fat, 33 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, 20 grams of sugar, four grams of protein, and 40 mg of sodium. I honestly think they taste sweet then only having 20 grams of sugar.
Some people may want to take note that there is alcohol in the Dessert Italiano Caramel Macchiato from Costco. Sugar is the second ingredient which doesn’t surprise me because I find it quite sugary! They contain milk and eggs and may contain tree nuts, wheat and soy. If you’re not severely allergic to gluten or celiac you probably can enjoy these!
Taste: 7/10 My husband and parents give it an 8/10 though.
Give it a try!
Although this isn’t my favorite refrigerated dessert from Costco my parents and husband like them. They taste like a caramel tiramisu and have a definite coffee and alcohol flavor.
Have you tried these? What do you think of them?

Is the Costco Dessert Italiano Caramel Macchiato discontinued? I’ve been looking for it at different warehouses in our area and I couldn’t find them!
It comes out only for a short period of time every year! Usually in the fall.
Do they have an expiration date? I lost the packaging!
About three weeks from when we purchased ours.
I just bought these for the first time. I’ve been very excited to try them once we got home but, I didn’t know there was an alcohol content. I am 4 months pregnant so I’m not sure if this is okay for me to consume.
Very excited that I have found this site! I look forward to insight.
Hey Danika! Eeek that’s such a personal decision. I think the alcohol content is so small that it would be okay. I was recently pregnant and would have ate them but it’s totally up to you. If you’re unsure you could ask your OB!
can the Caramel Macchiato ”cups” be used for hot liquids and are they microwave oven safe
Good question! I’m really not sure.
This was a fun desert for us, as my mom can only eat pureed foods or liquid diet at this point. Keeping the glass mini mugs for some pudding/tapioca coffee type deserts. Loved that they are a product from Italy.
Wondering if these desserts can be frozen? If not ….. too late as mine are in my freezer now!
nice, loved ur review.
