Indulge in these delicious Kirkland Signature Almond Danishes from the Costco bakery!
Hello friends! Today I’m reviewing a new item I found at my local Costco bakery! The Kirkland Signature Almond Danishes! When I found these danishes I couldn’t resist trying them, I love a lot of the Costco bakery items and these danishes looked delicious so I brought them home with me.
Other Costco bakery items I’ve reviewed are the Costco Kirkland Signature Cheese Buns, the Costco Kirkland Signature Raspberry Crumble Cookies, Costco Kirkland Signature Palm Leaves, Costco Kirkland Signature Banana Loaf, Costco Kirkland Signature Red Velvet Cheesecake, Costco Kirkland Signature Cinnamon Danishes, Costco Kirkland Signature Pumpkin Pie and the Costco Kirkland Signature Blueberry Cheese Crisp Pie.
The danishes can be found in the bakery section and the item number is 1559719.
These almond danishes from Costco are absolutely delicious! This is a crisp on the outside, doughy on the inside, flaky and super buttery pastry!
The middle filling is a dense, moist, sweet almond filling with a strong almond flavor. The almond flavor seems to diffuse from the middle filling to thes surrounding pastry on the outside so you get a hint of almond in every bite.
This is definitely a heavy danish! Very filling and not that light but overall really delicious, especially if you love almond flavor like I do!
You can purchase two containers of danishes at Costco for $12.99 Canadian. That’s how they get you, you can’t just purchase one, it must be two! Each container has four danishes per container.
$12.99 Canadian for eight danishes seems a tad on the expensive side to me.
The danishes come in a plastic resealable container. The best before date is two days from the date the danishes were packaged on.
These make an amazing breakfast, brunch, snack or dessert! They go really well with tea or coffee and totally satisfy any sweet tooth.
Brace yourself….one Costco Kirkland Signature Almond Danish is 750 calories, 47 grams of fat, 380 mg of sodium, 71 grams of carbohydrates, four grams of fibre, 31 grams of sugar and 13 grams of protein.
So yeah..not healthy. One danish is pretty much half of your daily caloric needs. However I am a firm believer in intuitive eating and enjoying life and treating yourself and these danishes are a great way to indulge a little.
Give it a try!
If you love almond flavor and danishes, try out these Costco Kirkland Signature Danishes. They’re very decadent and rich!
Would you try these? Why or why not? If you tried them, what did you think of them?

Thanks for the nutrition information. I’m on a low sodium diet and have to be aware of my intake. I’m too lazy to contact Costco. I love the almond danish best. Cream cheese and cherry are great too. Just bought the apple to try.
750 calories?! 😳 Thanks for sharing. Where did you find that information? I didn’t see any nutritional info on the package and can’t seem to find it online.
I get it directly from Costco 🙂
Can they be frozen? We won’t eat them all before they go bad.
We love them! Since there are only two of us, we freeze them then put them in the microwave. Delicious warm! My husband and I split one, which is plenty for us.
We wrap the second plastic container, tightly, in several layers of cellophane/seran-wrap, then placer that in a brown-paper grocery bag to keep air and moisture away. Even though there are only 4 per container, they are huge. But it worth freezing even if you only have a two day window once they thaw. I would not freeze them more than a month though
My sister told me to try these so I just bought them, warmed them a little in my toaster oven and they are delicious. I love almond. I live in Quebec so they were $12.99 plus PST and GST. They shouldn’t be charging tax as the law is 6 or more items are not taxable. Maybe because they are packaging them in 2 boxes of 4 we are getting screwed, but the minimum we can buy is 8. I will be contacting Costco as that adds $1.95 to the price.
I tried both almond and cherries danish from a US store ($9.99 for 2). I love the almond ones, not so much the cherries (perhaps just personal preference). Have not tried the cheese ones yet but will the next time. They are denser than almond croissants and less buttery, but it’s great substitute for when you don’t have freshly bakes croissants at hand.
I used to buy Trader Joe’s frozen almond croissants (which are delicious). However, these Costco danish are almost as good and they are simpler. No proofing and baking required. Instead of freezing I just put them in ziplock bags (2 danishes per small freezer bag) and put them in the fridge and reheat for 15-20 secs when I want one. They’re good in the fridge for couple weeks.
Thanks for sharing the nutritional info. The number calories is astounding. I think I’ll cut down from eating 1/2 a danish for breakfast to 1/4. They delicious with hot cup of coffee!
hi, I want to know if they are halal and doesn’t contain pork. One of its ingredients Protease is an enzyme. I don’t know its source. thanks
I would contact the Costco bakery and ask 🙂
Unfortunately they are not that good anymore…
Not flaky and no buttery taste.
Definitely they cut on ingredients.
Price should be much less at least.
Otherwise people will pass on that one ☝️
I thought the cheese danish (500 calories) was to die for!!! My roommate tried the almond but I don’t think I will. The calories are insane. Also, in the U.S. they are 2 packages for 9.99 😛
I haven’t tried the almond danish but did buy a package of the Cherry and a package of the Lemon ones. I can’t comment on the Cherry ones as they are in the freezer but the Lemon ones were awful! I was expecting a filling to be like a lemon curd but found it very bland. Will definitely not buy again. I also think these are a bit on the pricey side for Costco, maybe 2 packages for $10.00 would be better.
They only sell them 2 packages at a time. If you got charged full price for one four pack? They owe you four Danish.
I mostly agree with your reviews, Natalie. But not this time. These danishes are awful. They are dry and flavourless, but sweet.
Why Costco elected to go with the Almond and not Apple like they do in the US is mind-boggling.
At my local Costco locations, the Cherry and Cheese Danishes are snapped up quickly but the one you like, the Almond remains almost untouched.
They don’t have apple at the Tacoma WA (US) store, they have almond. And they are delicious. I wish they did have apple. Those I can walk by.
You must have had a bad batch if that’s possible. I buy the Almond for me, and cherry for my husband every 2-3 weeks. Freeze them, then heat and have a well deserved treat. Never had a bad one. Really sorry your experience was not good.
I agree that you must have had a bad batch because it is one of the best almond danishes I’ve had
I agree, had the almond for the first time and they are delicious! My husband and I share one and enjoy with coffee. 2 pkgs for $9.99 .
Natalie … assuming you will freeze some of these. Please let us know if they freeze well. If they are made with real almonds and real butter, then the price is actually good. Urg … why do they make us buy 2 packages!
Hey! So I didn’t freeze them but my parents did and they were fine. I’d honestly probably freeze them right away because they get a bit soft/soggy sitting on the counter for more than a day.
Wish I had read this review before I bought these! They are delicious but too addictive and way too much fat and sugar! The rest are going right into the freezer.
We buy the Cheese and now just recently bought the Almond Danish. I figured they were high in calories, but had no idea they were that much!! I don’t eat very many~ maybe one every 5 or 6 weeks. My husband eats them and he has 0% body fat… 🙁 But because of my high cholesterol, I will think twice about eating even that many. We DO FREEZE them and they turn out fine! You can either thaw and heat or just heat. Experiment with the time, from 20 to 30 sec. Slower is always better as they won’t turn rubbery or spongy. The Almond Danish are to die for!! <3
Hello, thank you for your review.
Since there are 4 pieces per box even Costco sells them by multiples of two boxes, are they subject to GST in AB?
Note in my home province of Quebec these will likely end up costing 15% more after GST and QST.
Not subject to GST, just checked my receipt.
This is a scam. I got one package just few hours ago. I wanted only one package. Then the cashier did not tell the rule that i needed to buy two. Very terrible experience. I have no ideas why they do this. When i got home, I found the price 12.99$. That is a heart attack for me.
Ohhh nooo! That’s horrible.
What you could do about costcuisine?
Not much to be honest!
they may give you an actual heart attack, given the calories, fat and sugar! Thao- love that name! Bring your receipt back to Costco CustServs, they will definitely refund your money! I do not let them get away with it. Also I will bring back produce that is already bad much before the ‘Best By Date’. The cashiers are innocent ‘middlemen’ and do not have time to make sure the thousands of customers read all of the signs/prices, etc…
