Good quality chocolate chips from Costco that are an amazing price!
Today I’m reviewing the Costco Kirkland Signature Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips. Sean bought these recently to use to make chocolate ganache for a cake he made and I decided to review them since the ganache turned out so well!
For baking I absolutely love the Rodelle Organic Baking Cococa from Costco that I have previously reviewed.
You can find the Kirkland Signature chocolate chips in the aisle with the baking supplies. The item number is 847473.
I absolutely love the taste of these chocolate chips and they’re amazing for baking. I used to buy Chipits for chocolate chip cookies but I much prefer these Costco Kirkland Signature Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips.
The Costco chocolate chips are a bit less sweet than other chocolate chips I’ve had and have a bold chocolate flavor that’s deeper than your average cheap milk chocolate, the quality is also outstanding compared to other chocolate chips I’ve purchased and I enjoy eating them just straight out the bag when I’m craving chocolate.
I paid $13.49 Canadian for the two killigram bag of chocolate chips which is way cheaper than any other chocolate chips at the local grocery store.
You can use the chocolate chips for squares, cakes, cookies, pancakes, waffles or muffins. They come in a resealable bag and the best before date is more than a year from the date I purchased the chocolate chips.
You need to store the chocolate chips in a cool, dark place. Some people even like to store the bag in their freezer.
1/8th of a cup of chocolate chips is 70 calories, four and a half grams of fat, nine grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, seven grams of sugar, one gram of protein and zero milligrams of sodium.
Obviously chocolate chips aren’t a super nutritious food but I like to think of them as soul food! The ingredients list is short and simple with unsweetened chocolate being the first ingredient.
The Costco Kirkland Signature Sem-Sweet Chocolate Chips are going to be my go-to chocolate chips from now on.
Have you tried these chocolate chips? What did you think of them?

do kirkland signature chocolate chips contain lead?
I don’t believe so?
Believe based on? Saying stuff based a feeling is almost dismissing concern without though.It probably does contain lead and cadmium, need someone to test if its below max allowed dosage
I prefer darker chocolate by far and prefer less sugar. I also prefer no milk products. Too many have reactions and inflammation from milk. This gives the best cocoa flavor as well. These chocolate chips In white bag I believe don’t have milk fat but they don’t melt as well as others. Maybe cocoa butter naturally occurring would help with that. Either way I prefer these or the other kind that has milk fat and I hope the price stays lower. It’s not an essential food but it price is low I’ll keep buying
I prefer the other chocolate chips that Costco sells.
I have bought both types of Costco Chocolate Chips and made chocolate chip cookies with both of the Costco sold chips the white bag with the 51% Cacao and the flat bag with the pink and red color.
Over the recent holidays I have made chocolate chip cookies and have come to the personal conclusion that I prefer the pink and red bag Costco chocolate chip over these white bag chips. I think the pink and red bag Costco chips to be close to the Nestle chocolate chips in taste. I prefer the taste of the Original Nestle Toll House recipe made cookies with either the red and pink bag Costco chocolate chips or Nestle brand original chocolate chips over the White bag 51% Costco chocolate chips.
I find the cookies made with the white bag chocolate chips to be too strong in the chocolate area, I have an unopened bag of the white bag 51% that I am taking back.
I will stick to the red and pink bag Costco chocolate chips in the future or Nestle’s original.
BTW I find both types of Costco Choclate chips still being sold, the red and pink bag and the white 51% bag it just depends on which Costco I shop and timing.
Sometimes I find only Nestle, sometimes Nestle and the White bag, sometimes only the red and pink bagged chips.
These excellent chocolate chips are no longer in the Seattle area stores. They were wonderful. Not too sweet and vegan. I would love to have them back. The latest Kirkland brand chocolate chips are in a different bag with red and brown on them and they include more sugar, dairy and are not nearly as good a chocolate. Shame on Costco for changing their product without an explanation.
Costco recently repackaged these chips in a different-colored bag and the ingredients list also has changed from this white bag. As unable to consume dairy, we were thrilled to find chocolate that did not contain milk. The mention of “may contain milk” usually means there could be cross contamination in processing but that milk is not an ingredient. The new bags in the warehouses all list milk as an ingredient. Costco, please return these white bags and dairy-free recipe to your shelves in Portland Oregon.
