Costco Kirkland Signature Organic Strawberry Spread Review

I absolutely love this strawberry jam, it makes the best PB&J sandwiches!

The last time we were at Costco I remembered we needed some jam as we had run out at home, I saw this Costco Kirkland Signature Organic Strawberry Spread and thought it looked good so picked it up to review.

This can be found in the aisle with the honey, peanut butter and other jams. The item number is 215284.


This strawberry spread is amazing. It’s so flavorful and sweet and has a strong, delicious strawberry flavor! It’s not overly sweet and spreads amazingly. There’s a few small chunks of strawberries in the spread which I personally love.

I would probably say this is the best strawberry jam/spread I’ve tried and reminds me of the jam I’d have on toast as a kid.


I paid $9.49 Canadian for the massive one liter Kirkland Signature Organic Strawberry spread. This will definitely last us awhile.


Perfect for toast or on bagels, pancakes or waffles. Also makes amazing peanut butter and jam sandwiches! The best before date is about a year from the date we purchased the spread. You also need to refrigerate this before opening it. I had to get my husband to open it for me for the first time as I found it hard to open! I’m not sure what I would have done if he wasn’t around.


Per tablespoon this doesn’t have as much sugar as I expected it to ham. One tablespoon is 35 calories, zero grams of fat and sodium, nine grams of carbohydrates, zero grams of fibre, eight grams of sugar and 0.1 grams pf protein. The first ingredient listed is fresh organic strawberries! Obviously I used way more than one tablespoon on my toast!

We don’t eat a ton of jam in our house. Generally just on the weekends but I would definitely buy this again and am actually craving it now! It’s sweet, fruity and so delicious.


Taste: 9.5/10

Cost: 9/10

Convenience: 10/10

Nutrition: 2/10


Must buy!

If you love strawberry jam/spread I guarantee you’ll love this!

What’s your favorite flavor of jam?

  1. After waiting for months and months for Kirkland Strawberry Preserves to be restocked and suffering with the overly-sweet alternative in the meantime, it finally reappeared.
    Honestly, these preserves were the greatest.
    HOWEVER, this version of Kirkland’s preserves—
    “yuck” is one of the words that comes to mind, along with “disappointed”.
    Seems they did a little sleight-of -hand and either changed the recipe or they are using another manufacturer.
    Sickeningly sweet, no more fresh strawberry taste, gross texture with lumps of what may have once resembled strawberries.
    As Strawberry preserves go, at BEST, this new version is ordinary and tolerable.
    If you’ve just tried it for the first time, it might be fine for you but our family hates it.

  2. I just got this for the first time, it’s so damn good!
    Story time: when I was 8 I was diagnosed with Fructose intolerance and through trial it was determined thst I couldn’t eat ANY fruit AT ALL. For years I’d periodically search for anything about a “cure” or help for my intolerance and a few years ago I found out about “Glucose/Xylose
    Isomerase”. Glucose isomerase helps your body convert fructose to glucose! Now, it only works if you have one of two types of FI and luckily for me I have the right one! It’s expensive as hell unfortunately but I get the pills “Eat Anything” off of Amazon and take 2 before eating fruit. Unfortunately with the severity of my intolerance I can only handle SOME fruits, thankfully strawberries are one! So I’ve been slowly trying different fruit related foods in my diet as well as trying to lose weight and eat healthier using intuitive eating. (I’ve lost 30 lbs this year) and this time I’m having peanut butter and jelly for lunch which I haven’t had since I was young!
    End of story 😁
    This has to be the best jam. I love the Strawberry pieces in it, it’s perfectly sweet, I love the minimal ingredients, and with only 35 calories per tablespoon it’s perfect! (I usually have 2 tbsp on my sandwiches but it’s still only 70c)

  3. FYI, the Costco near me is selling a brand called Walls Strawberry Organic Fruit Spread. It has the exact same carb/sugar/calorie content as the Costco and is cheaper. Makes me mad they discontinued the Kirkland brand as I gave this to my brother and sister for a late Christmas present and they both wanted me to buy more. (They have very few Costcos in North Louisiana so I would have been happy to truck it in for them. It’s like a crack dealer went out of business.

  4. I’m surprised at the comments. This is not a jam, it’s organic spread with no sugar added.
    It’s delicious, tastes amazing. We are frustrated that we can’t buy it for over three years at Costco in Toronto. There are many Costco products we bought regularily, that suddenly vanish.
    For example, Pork tenderloin used to be Canadian, now it’s US
    Packed in liquid and nowhere near the quality.
    French Malle dijon mustard, hasn’t been available for ever a year.

  5. The consistency of this jam is TERRIBLE. Sometimes it’s nice and smooth and other times the jars are just full of strawberry chunks. When its smooth it’s great but out of the 4 jars I’ve bought,2 of them have been good and 2 of them useless chunky mess.

  6. Ugh I have to disagree. The jam is so full of sugar that it’s unpalatable. I don’t u sweat and- strawberries are sweet by themselves why do they have to ruin the ham by packing it with sooooo much sugar. Ewww. If they cut half the sugar it would be very good but if you want to know what it tastes like– take 1 medium (walnut shell sized) cooked strawberry- mush it up, then add about 1/2 a cup of sugar, blend, that is how sweet it is. Pure sugar

  7. On your Kirkland strawberry spread you have total of 9g sugar why did you include 8g of added sugar total of 17g in 1 Tbsp that’s way to much sugar!!

  8. No!
    I keep refrigerated and have never had a jar go bad.
    I have tried numerous brands and this by far is the best with flavor and thicker consistency with chunks of strawberry.
    I always have one in the fridge and one in the pantry for future use. Can’t go wrong!

  9. This jam looks so good, thank you for reviewing it. I wish Costco had raspberry jam. That’s a childhood favorite of mine.

  10. How does this one compare to the French one Bonne Maman? That one is my boyfriend’s favourite, but I prefer a less sweet jam.
