Costco Kirkland Signature Roasted Garlic and Herb Almonds Review

Whatever your tastes are, you can probably find a nut with a seasoning you really like out there somewhere. There are all sorts of different combinations out there, and some of them are a little odd (like these dill pickle peanuts I recently reviewed). These Kirkland Signature Roasted Garlic and Herb Seasoned Almonds sound pretty conventional, but you might be a bit surprised by the flavor when you actually try them!

My first thought when I tried these almonds is that I can imagine them more as a kind of appetizer than a snack. I could see having a bowl of them in the table at an Italian restaurant as a sort of healthier bread alternative.

The almonds are whole and pretty large! They’re bigger than a lot of almonds I’ve had. Immediately upon opening the bag you’re hit with a strong scent of herbs and garlic. You can also visibly see the seasoning on all the almonds.

These aren’t small almonds!

The almonds are generously seasoned. I think the garlic comes through the strongest, but they’re also quite salty and herby. You can definitely taste the rosemary and oregano. I enjoyed the flavors for the most part, but for whatever reason I just can’t see myself snacking on them. I could see them going well with a pre-dinner glass of white wine.

Heavily seasoned.

I don’t think these are terrible, they’re just not really my thing. They’re very seasoned so the flavor is so strong! Which can be a good thing or bad depending on your tastes. I find the flavor completely overpowers the natural deliciousness of almonds.


In the US the 2.2-pound bag costs $9.99. In Canada, the same-sized bag costs $13.99. Both prices seem reasonable to me for a pretty large bag of almonds.

The bag is resealable which makes the almonds easy to store and keeps them fresh. The best-before date is a year from when I purchased them.

These might be the perfect snack for people who love herb-flavored crackers. As I said I think they’d be good served alone at a get-together or on a charcuterie board. I don’t mind them I just think they’re a bit too strong tasting for an everyday snack. I think kids would find the flavor a bit weird.



A one-ounce serving or about 25 almonds contains 170 calories, 15 grams of fat, 160 milligrams of sodium, five grams of carbohydrates, three grams of fiber, two grams of sugar and five grams of protein.

Nutrition facts.

Although almonds have a lot of calories, they are pretty low in carbohydrates and are full of healthy fats!


I absolutely love the short and sweet ingredients list. There’s only almonds, peanuts oil, seasoning and olive oil. The bag states that “the highly refined peanut oil used in roasting of this product is not an allergen”.

It also states that it’s processed on equipment that also packages peanuts, other tree nuts, soy, milk and wheat.

Give it a try!

I don’t mind these, they’re not terrible. I’m just not thrilled about having a whole bag of them to eat because of how strong the flavor is! I think a lot of people like a lot of flavor and would enjoy these, so try them out and let me know your thoughts! I do think these would be popular at a party if a person was just having a few with a glass of wine or on a charcuterie board. To snack on them regularly at home I find them a little much.

  1. These are marcona style almonds hence the different texture and taste. They are close to a macadamia nut in terms of texture. The herb seasoning is very strong I have been working on finishing my bag for over a month now. I’m not adverse to the seasoning but I think I would prefer them plain.
