Costco Kirkland Signature Broccoli Cheddar Soup Review

Broccoli and cheddar is a classic flavor combination that’s found in recipes for casseroles, pasta, side dishes and of course soup! The Costco Kirkland Signature Brocolli Cheddar Soup sounds like the perfect comfort food for any creamy soup lover! Is this the perfect cold-weather meal from Costco?

Now that it’s cold and snowy here I figured it was the perfect time to do a Kirkland Signature soup review. My local Costco carries this cheddar broccoli soup during the fall and winter months each year. Creamy soups aren’t my favorite but I do enjoy them from time to time! Today I’m reviewing the Costco Kirkland Signature Brocolli Cheddar Soup.

Other soups I’ve reviewed from Costco are the Cuisine Adventures French Onion Soup, Johnny’s Potato Cheddar Soup Mix, Authentic Asia Hand Wrapped Shrimp Wonton Soup, Tonkotsu Ramen, Ajinomoto Tokyo Style Shoyu Ramen with Chicken, Sprague Organic Lentil Soup and the Tim Hortons Chicken Noodle Soup.

Location in Store

You can find the soup in the refrigerated section near the fresh pasta, refrigerated appetizers, sauerkraut and love beets. The item number is 615744.

There are two containers of soup in the package.


The soup isn’t as cheesy as I thought it would be! It has a mild, creamy cheddar flavor. There isn’t a sharp cheddar flavor and overall I find the soup has more of a salty plain cream flavor than a cheese flavor. There is a noticeable saltiness which makes the soup quite flavorful and I do find it decently tasty.

There are small to medium-sized chunks of broccoli in the soup and they add a bit of texture but not much additional flavor. mall to medium-sized chunks in the soup. In my opinion, the soup is quite heavy and pretty salty. It’s not a light soup so I can see this being served for lunch or supper on its own.

The soups come in a pack of two. Two 830 milliliter containers of soup cost $11.99 Canadian at Costco which isn’t cheap but neither are cans of soup!

The Costco Broccoli Cheddar Soup is gluten-free!


The Costco Brocolli Cheddar Soup is pre-made and ready to eat. It can be heated on the stovetop or in the microwave. As I said, this is a heavier soup so I think you can get away with having it alone for lunch or dinner!

Cooking instructions.

The best-before date on the soup is also about three months from the date I purchased it and it must be kept refrigerated. There is a plastic seal on top of the soup under the lid as well.

I always prefer to heat my soup on the stove.



One cup of soup is 150 calories, eight grams of fat, 620 mg of sodium, 13 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, six grams of sugar and eight grams of protein.

That’s a lot of sodium in one cup but I find that most soups have quite a bit of sodium. The fat content is also quite high but that doesn’t surprise me with the milk and cheese.

Nutrition facts.


The first three ingredients are what I expect to see in brocolli cheddar soup. I don’t love the fourth ingredient being a processed cheese product and all the other chemical-sounding ingredients that follow. Although this has broccoli in it I would not call this nutritious!

The soup contains milk and soy so it’s an option for anyone who is celiac or following a gluten-free diet!

Give it a try!

If you know you like broccoli cheddar soup you may want to give the Costco Kirkland Signature kind a try. It’s not super cheesy but it is flavorful, most likely from the salt content!

  1. Couldn’t agree with Debbie more regarding the challenge and frustration with trying to peel the film back to get to the soup as I have yet to be successful in peeling back the plastic film without it tearing off at the container outer edge.
    Has the person writing the instructions ever tried it themselves?
    If you need a knife or scissors to puncture the film to remove then just state so…..don’t waste peoples time and frustration with instructions that don’t work.
    Has the packaging engineer been informed?

  2. I have to wonder why this soup is packaged in the manner it is. One would think that they would want you to re-use the container however, the clear plastic seal makes it impossible to open by just pulling on the tab. In fact, when you pull on the tab, all that happens is it breaks off leaving you to find a knife or scissors to actually open it and then the seal sticks to the container so you have no other choice but to throw it away. IF YOU WANT US TO RE-USE THE CONTAINER START PACKAGING IT SO THAT THE SEAL DOES NOT BREAK AND ALLOWS ALL OF THE CLEAR PLASTIC SEAL TO COME OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I absolutely love this Cheddar broccoli soup. I hope they continue to make it. It’s just right and perfect just like it is.
    I am a vegetarian and prefer to eat this to any other soup available anywhere!
    I can get 3 bowls out of each container. It equals to about $2 a bowl and for the quality that’s just right for me.
    Costco please don’t ever stop.msking this wonderful soup!

  4. I just bought this for the second time. This time, the broccoli was tough and stringy, and I literally started to choke on the stringy parts. My son had to help me dislodge it from my throat.

    I was dissatisfied with the taste as well. I think I will try to make my own. This way, I know what I am getting. So sad. I normally enjoy Costco’s products.
