Brie is a popular cheese to serve on charcuterie boards. It’s known for its gooey, spreadable texture and mild creamy flavor. Is the Costco Kirkland Signature Double Crème Brie the best brie you can find in a grocery store? What does this brie pair best with? Find out below!
I’m not a huge fan of soft cheeses but I don’t mind them! They’re just not my favorite. However, I’ve seen the Costco Kirkland Signature Double Crème Brie at my local store for quite some time and wanted to be adventurous and try it!
Other cheese products from Costco I like are the Boursin Cheese, Kirkland Signature Manchego Cheese, Vello Fresh Mozzarella, La Terra Fina Queso Dip With Cheddar, Bothwell Cheese Variety Pack and the Kirkland Signature Tex Mex Shredded Cheese.
Location in Store
You can find this in the refrigerated deli section, near the cold-cut meats, other cheeses and dips. The item number is 610845.
I was expecting the cheese to be extremely soft with a strong flavor but that isn’t the case. It has a very mild, mellow flavor. The flavor is so creamy, and has a bit of a nutty taste with a hint of sweetness to it.
The cheese is spreadable but not super soft and I think will make an awesome cheese for a charcuterie board served with some crusty bread, pecans, dried fruit and prosciutto! The flavor of the brie is not strong or pungent.
The Kirkland Signature Double Creme Brie weighs 600 grams and comes in a large circular shape. It costs $10.69 Canadian which isn’t bad, cheese is not cheap currently!
The best-before date on the brie is three weeks from when I purchased it, it also needs to be kept refrigerated. This particular brie is made in Canada.
When I did some research on what to serve with brie I found that brie pairs well with sweet stone fruits, wine, beer, crackers, pecans, almonds and prosciutto.
One three-centimeter cube of brie contains 110 calories, 10 grams of fat, zero grams of carbohydrates, fibre and sugar and six grams of protein. The brie is low in carbs but it’s really easy to eat far more than just a three-centimeter cube so if you’re watching your calorie or fat counts you may want to practice portion control (which is hard to do!)
The ingredients list is short and sweet with ingredients you’d expect to see such as milk and cream as well as salt. The brie is made from pasteurized milk and cream.
Give it a try!
If you like spreadable, mild-flavored, creamy cheese or are making a charcuterie board, this is a great option!
