Costco Kirkland Signature Muffins Review

The muffins in the Costco bakery are a classic product that’s been around for years. They’re famous for their jumbo size! They come in a variety of common muffin flavors and I’m going to be reviewing each one in this post. Find out below which Costco muffin tastes the best and how many calories each kind has!

As a child, the Costco Kirkland Signature muffins from the bakery department at Costco were a major treat for my brother and me. Back then they came in a big variety pack with three or four different kinds and we would fight over who got which kind. In this post, I’m going to be reviewing each current flavor of Costco muffin and also providing the nutrition information!

Other Costco bakery products are the Costco Kirkland Signature Plain Bagels, Costco Kirkland Signature Jalapeno Cheddar Bagels, Costco Kirkland Signature Imitation Blueberry Bagels, Costco Kirkland Signature Lemon Cream Cheese Danishes, Costco Kirkland Signature Cinnamon Danish, Costco Kirkland Signature Everything Bagels, Costco Kirkland Signature Cinnamon Raisin Bagel, Costco Kirkland Signature Cherry Danish and the Costco Kirkland Signature Almond Danish.

Location in Store

You can find the muffins in the bakery section at Costco. The item number is 192026.

Taste

Blueberry Muffins

The blueberry muffins have real blueberries!

They’re quite spongey and light. Less dense than it looks from the outside! They’re a bit crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The blueberry muffins are moist enough but not super moist.

Each muffin is so large!

There is not a ton of flavor in the dough and they’re mildly sweet with a hint of lemon. Not a ton of blueberries and not evenly distributed but the few there are taste yummy. The blueberries add sweetness as well.

Chocolate Muffins

The chocolate looks so good!

The chocolate muffin seems denser but not as quite dense as you would think from the outside appearance. The chocolate muffin seems a bit moister than the blueberry.

You can’t really see many chocolate chips inside.

They are very rich and chocolatey, it’s like eating a chocolate cupcake. There is the odd chunk of chocolate that gives it some texture but there aren’t a lot of those pieces. They’re quite sweet and decadent! I remember them being a lot fudgier and moist as a kid but they’re not very fudgy anymore.

Cost

You have to buy two packs of muffins at Costco, you can’t just buy one. Each pack comes with six muffins and two packs costs $7.99 Canadian which is really reasonable! Less than a dollar per muffin.

Convenience

The muffins have a best before date that’s four days from the date they were packed on. The Costco muffins freeze really well so if you can’t eat 12 muffins in four days, no big deal, just pop them in your freezer.

If you’re in a single-person household or just want to buy one pack of six muffins, it is a little inconvenient that Costco forces you to buy two packs.

These are great for a snack, breakfast or dessert. Kids seem to really enjoy them as well as adults! They’re perfect to bring camping or on a road trip.

Nutrition

Blueberry Muffin Calories and Ingredients

The blueberry muffin has 600 calories, 33 grams of fat, 800 milligrams of sodium, 67 grams of carbohydrates, 33 grams of sugar, nine grams of protein and three grams of fiber.

I’m happy to see that there are real blueberries listed in the ingredients! The muffins contain wheat, soy, milk, egg, sulfites and may contain tree nuts, peanuts and sesame. Unfortunately, the only real healthy ingredient listed is blueberries and the oils used in the muffins as well as other ingredients are pretty unhealthy and known to be inflammatory.

  1. The best by far were the apple muffins which disappeared about 2 years ago and were replaced by the banana chocolate chip

  2. It’s a major disappointment these muffins aren’t mixed per pack. I find the Blueberry more moist compared to the chocolate. Costco needs to offer Bran muffins which are a better option than these entirely desert options. At least with the bran muffin you won’t feel as guilty like with the other sweeter varieties.

    • Yes I agree on the bran muffins why did they stop selling them? They were rated number 2 in my book along w blueberry ones. They were my go too daily. This was a big let down far as bakery section. I really hope they bring them back I’d rather see bran muffins than chocolate but that’s just me. Bc I’m not a chocolate fan! Please bring the BRAN MUFFINS BACK PLEASE 🙏
