Costco Kirkland Signature Butter Croissant Review

Do the Costco croissants freeze well? How do they compare to a perfect French bakery croissant? I’m telling you everything you need to know about the Costco Kirkland Signature Butter Croissants that so many Costco shoppers love!

Other bakery items from Costco are the Kirkland Signature Muffins, Kirkland Signature Almond Danishes, Kirkland Signature Banana Pecan Loaf, Kirkland Signature Gooey Cinnamon Rolls, Kirkland Signature Ciabatta Buns, Kirkland Signature Tuxedo Cake, Kirkland Signature Tiramisu Cake and the Kirkland Signature Cheese Buns.

The croissants are available in the bakery section at Costco, in both Canada and the USA! The item number in Canada is 1046335 and 1199652 in the United States.

A simple breakfast!


The croissants are light and soft but not very crisp or that flaky. The dough is a bit sweet and very buttery.

Golden brown on the outside, white and fluffy on the inside.

They’re different than croissants from a French bakery. They’re not crispy and don’t flake everywhere. They’re more doughy and heavier but still delicious. The texture of the croissant dough is soft and chewy.

You can see that the dough is light and airy.

The longer you leave the croissants sitting on the more dense and heavy they become, almost a bit soggy so I recommend eating them as soon as possible or freezing them. I like them on their own, but they taste great as a sandwich or with jam.

There are 12 croissants in the container and it costs $6.99 Canadian or $5.99 USD. This is really reasonable for such a large container of croissants. Although they may not be as good as fresh croissants from a local bakery, they’re priced much cheaper than a stand-alone bakery.

12 croissants in the pack.


The best-before date on the croissants is about five days from when we bought them, but I think they’ll be pretty soggy and not very fresh tasting by day five. I have frozen the croissants from Costco and they freeze just fine.

The croissants are great as a snack, breakfast or brunch item!

These make a delicious pesto, mozzarella, chicken sandwich! They’re also a really easy snack or breakfast item to pack for kids.



One croissant contains 300 calories, 18 grams of fat, 10 grams of saturated fat, 290 milligrams of sodium, 30 grams of carbohydrates, less than a gram of fiber, four grams of sugar and six grams of protein.


The croissants contain wheat, milk and eggs. I love that the ingredients list is pretty short and sweet with flour and actual butter being the main ingredients! There isn’t much sugar in the croissants which is a positive for those who are trying to not eat a ton of processed sugar.

Give it a try!

These are priced extremely reasonably and are tasty enough! They do taste like grocery store-made croissants and don’t compare to fresh stand-alone bakery croissants but they’re still yummy.

  1. Love these croissants microwaved for 30 seconds alongside a glass of juice or milk. It makes you feel that it’s freshly out of the oven more – extra warmth, softness and tenderness.

  2. I currently have a healthy portion of my little upright freezer dedicated to croissants. (I wrap them individually in tinfoil and take out one or two at a time, refrigerating them until I’m ready to eat.) They are delicious.

  3. they are really delicous. i have even sliced them up and put them in the dehydrator. its best on a lower temperature. it has been along time since i have eaten a fresh one from a bakery, so i can not compare. they would be good for anything sweet or savory. they do freeze well. i have found that the prices at costco are often cheaper than anywhere else and of better quality too.

  4. I have bought these many times and in a croissant ‘pinch’, they will do. I have never frozen them and use them for various applications (pizza base, serve with soup or chili, sandwiches, baked French toast, etc.).

    However, I am very confused about your ‘soggy’ description. I have never experienced this and don’t find the croissants get heavier as the days pass. They may get a bit stale but soggy? I don’t get that.

  5. We enjoy these grom costco. They do freeze well. I cut them before thawing them if using for a sandwich. Great flavor other then bread.
