Butter toffee and cashews sound like a delicious combination of flavors. The Costco Kirkland Signature Butter Toffee Cashews have a sweet and sugary coating. Will these candied nuts satisfy cravings for both salty and sweet snacks? Find out below!
During our last Costco visit, Sean picked up these Kirkland Signature Butter Toffee Flavored Cashews. These are new at my Costco and I was curious to try them!
Other nuts I’ve reviewed from Costco are the Kirkland Signature Honey Roasted Macadamia Nuts, Savanna Orchards Gourmet Honey Roasted Nuts, Kirkland Signature Premium Quality Whole Mixed Nuts, Kirkland Signature Mixed Nut Butter with Seeds, Kirkland Signature Natural Peanut Butter and the Kirkland Signature Creamy Almond Butter.

The nuts can be found in the snack section; the item number is 1510336.
The first thing I notice when I open the bag is that the cashews smell really nice! There’s a noticeable toffee aroma.
The butter toffee coating adds a bit of crispiness (the way sugar crystals are crispy) and a fair bit of sweetness to the flavor of the cashews. I notice the flavor of plain sugar more than the flavor of butter toffee or the nuts themselves. The sweetness was a bit much for my tastes and a bit overpowering, but not unpleasant.
I was hoping these would have a combination of salty and sweet flavors but all I can taste is sweet so if you’re looking for some noticeable saltiness, it’s not in these.
The 680-gram bag costs $12.99 Canadian at Costco which isn’t overly expensive but not super cheap. Cashews are usually one of the cheaper nuts you can buy.
I appreciate that the bag reseals so the cashews stay fresh, the best-before date listed on my bag is about nine months from the date I purchased it.
I can definitely see these being great for any nut dish and for people who enjoy sweet, candied cashews. One way to use them is to toss some in your movie night popcorn!
A 1/3 cup serving contains 260 calories, 18 grams of fat, 24 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, 16 grams of sugar, four grams of protein and 90 milligrams of sodium. That’s quite a few calories and a decent amount of fat! It’s really easy to eat a 1/3 cup serving so if you’re really watching your calories, fat or sugar, you may want to portion your nuts out.
The ingredients are pretty straightforward! I did some google research and found that there are some studies that have concluded individuals with peanut allergies can consume highly refined peanut oil, which I find really interesting.
I think these are just okay, they’re a bit sweet for my liking. However, if you know you like sugary cashews, you’ll probably like these.
Have you tried these? What do you think of them?
