Did you know artichokes are full of antioxidants and are also high in fibre, low in fat and loaded with vitamins. Have you ever tried artichoke hearts? Costco carries their own Kirkland Signature Artichoke Hearts and I’m excited to try them to see how they taste.
Kirkland Signature Artichoke Hearts seem like a boring review but I picked them up to try for those who are like me and don’t eat artichoke hearts regularly.
Other similar products from Costco are the Costco Tasso’s Papandoro Peppers Stuffed With Feta and Kalamata Olives, Costco Matt & Steve’s Extreme Pickle Spears, Costco Del Destino Mango Slices and Costco Paisley Farm Four Bean Salad.

You can find the jar of artichoke hearts at Costco in the aisle with the other jarred vegetables as well as seasonings. The item number is 2547560.
Artichoke hearts taste to me like a mix between cabbage, brussels sprouts and asparagus to me. They have a very mild flavor and the texture of these Kirkland Signature Artichoke Hearts is quite soft! They’re packed in oil and vinegar and when I’m eating these I’m kind of reminded of sauerkraut.
The artichoke hearts have a mild garlic flavor and I think that there could be a little less oil and more vinegar because they’re quite oily straight out of the jar but I’m someone who just doesn’t love a ton of oil. If you want to avoid so much oil you can always blot them with paper towel a bit.
These are great for salads, pizza, charcuterie boards or pasta dishes.
The artichokes come in a two pack, two one liter jars costs $13.99. I’ve seen artichoke hearts at the local grocery store and the Costco price is much cheaper.
The artichoke hearts need to be refrigerated after opening and the best before date is two years from the date we purchased them! Obviously they may not still be good if they’ve been sitting in your fridge for two years.
You can use artichoke hearts in a salad, on a pizza, on a charcuterie board or in pasta. There’s lots of different ways to use these! Also for anyone wondering, the artichoke hearts are a product of Spain.
Two pieces is 30 calories, two grams of fat, one gram of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, one gram of sugar and one gram of protein. They’re low in calories, fat, carbs and sugar!
The ingredients list is short and simple, I wish instead of packing these in canola oil they used extra virgin olive oil but that would raise the cost quite a bit. These are gluten-free, dairy-free and overall really healthy!
I found this article from Healthline that points out some of the health benefits of eating artichoke hearts like lowering bad cholesterol, regulating blood pressure and improving liver health.
Give it a try!
If you’re someone who uses artichoke hearts a lot in recipes at home the Costco Kirkland Signature Artichoke Hearts are really reasonably priced and can be used in many ways!
