Perfect for the holiday season – sweet, soft and chewy Kirkland Signature Ginger Cookies from the Costco bakery!
Today I’m reviewing the Costco Kirkland Signature Ginger Cookies. These are available at Costco in the fall just in time for the big holiday season, they aren’t available all year round so pick them up when you see them! I absolutely love homemade ginger cookies as well as ones from expensive bakeshops in town so needed to review these.
Costco also sometimes carries Kirkland Signature Butter Shortbread Cookies around Christmas as well as their Kirkland Signature Christmas Fruit Cake. If you like Nanaimo Bars the bakery department also has those too!
Location in Store
You can find the Costco Kirkland Signature Ginger cookies in the bakery department near the other cookies. The item number is 417766.
I think the Costco ginger cookies are pretty tasty. I do find they’re a little on the sweet side and don’t have as much molasses and ginger flavor as I like. They’re still excellent for a grocery store bought ginger cookie.
The texture is chewy and soft, the cookies are lightly coated in granulated sugar which adds to the sweetness. The outside of the cookie is slightly crisp and chewy with a softer center.
They’re pretty sweet cookies but I did not find them totally overly sweet and the ginger flavor is definitely discernable. There’s just the right amount of ginger and spices to give these a little bit of warmth without being too spicy.
For $7.99 Canadian you get 24 cookies in total. This is really reasonable for a large amount of cookies that taste pretty good. If you can’t eat 24 cookies yourself, share some with friends or family.
The cookies freeze really well, you can either freeze them in the plastic container they come in or put them in a Ziploc bag. To make ginger cookies from scratch it can be time and labor intensive.
It can be also be hard for some to achieve a really delicious tasting ginger cookie. Can anyone else relate to getting their Grandma’s famous ginger cookie recipe and not being able to replicate it?
The best before date is five days from the date the cookies were packed on. I love dipping these in a glass of cold milk. I think they’d also be pretty popular at a holiday potluck or party.
One cookie is 220 calories, seven grams of fat, 170 mg of sodium, 36 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, 20 grams of sugar and two grams of protein. The cookies are a decent size so 220 calories and seven grams of fat doesn’t seem totally unreasonable to me.
When you make cookies at home you’re probably using real butter and not adding artificial flavors, soy lecithin or palm oil. That’s one of the negatives about buying cookies from a grocery store. When you make cookies at home from scratch you can control all the ingredients you put in them.
Give it a try!
I like these cookies and look forward to having them out of my freezer when I want over the holiday season.
Do you have a favorite cookie from Costco?

Awesome cookies,please start carrying them all year
Please start selling these cookies all year, we really enjoy them.
Love them too!
Holy moly 20g sugar per cookie?? That translates to approximately 5 teaspoons!! Unfortunately Costco doesn’t carry these in Ontario so maybe that’s a good thing lol 😝. They’ve also discontinued their peanut butter cookies and traditional shortbread too 🥲
Thanks for this review! How’d you get the nutrition?!
I ask Costco directly when I’m in the store! It usually requires me going to a manager and waiting for quite some time but I get it!
What is the calorie count / cookie?
Hi Eileen! I will get it
Ginger cookies are my favorite and I looked for them last year as well, with no luck. But now I’m sad because I’m keto and can’t eat it. At least I get to enjoy them vicariously through you.
Question: how does freezing affect the texture? I’ve always had a problem with cookies being too hard after freezing, and I’m only really into chewy ginger cookies. I used to buy the ones at Starbucks. How do they compare to Starbucks?
I wanted to know why Costo only sells these Ginger cookies at Christmas.My husband and I love these cookies and usually buy 3 or 4 pkgs but didn’t get there in time to get any this year .Would buy them all year long if available
