Classic apple pie is in the bakery section at Costco and it’s pretty tasty!
I’m reviewing the Costco Kirkland Signature Homestyle Apple Pie today! I love apple pie, slightly warm with a big scoop vanilla bean ice cream so when I saw it at Costco I wanted to pick it up.
I’ve reviewed numerous pies from the Costco bakery! The Costco Kirkland Signature Shepherd’s Pie, Costco Kirkland Signature Chicken Pot Pie, Costco Kirkland Signature Pumpkin Pie, Rhubarb Strawberry Crumble Pie, Blueberry Cheese Crisp Pie and Apple Crumble Pie.
Location in Store
The pie is located in the bakery section and the item number is 26550.
As the name suggests, this is Costco’s take on the classic plain apple pie. Calling the pie a homestyle pie isn’t quite enough to make it taste like a homemade one, but this is a very solid grocery store apple pie.
The pie crust is fairly thin and decently flaky. The flavor isn’t great, but it’s not bad. It doesn’t have that nice buttery flavor that homemade pie crust does. It’s pretty plain. There’s a dusting of sugar on top and that adds some sweetness. You don’t really notice it that much when you’re taking bites of crust and filling together, but that’s not a bad thing in my opinion. The bottom of the crust seems well baked. Not crispy, but certainly not soggy.
The filling is definitely the highlight of the pie. It’s loaded with apples and just a hint of spice (cinnamon). It tastes like it should. The flavors from the filling dominate each bite of pie and make it very satisfying to eat.
The Costco Kirkland Signature Homestyle Apple Pie costs $8.99 Canadian.
The best before date on the pie is three days from the date the pie was packaged on. The pie slices easily and can also be frozen either in slices or whole.
It comes in a plastic resealable container and I notice it gets quite a bit softer the more days it sits on the counter. Apple pie is a comfort dessert that both adults and kids enjoy.
1/12th of the pie is 320 calories, 15 grams of fat, 220 mg of sodium, 45 grams of carbohydrates, two grams of fibre, 26 grams of sugar and two grams of protein.
When you bake a pie from scratch you can choose exactly what goes into your pie filling and pie crust and generally it’s a few simple ingredients. When you buy a pie from the grocery store it’s not surprising to see ingredients like soy and palm oil as well as a few hard-to-pronounce food additive sounding ingredients.
Give it a try!
Overall the Kirkland Signature Homestyle Apple Pie is a good but not great version of the classic pie. I highly recommend warming it up and enjoying it with a side of vanilla ice cream.
