Pecans and walnuts are my favorite kinds of nuts to snack on. I haven’t really ever seen “snacking walnuts” that are salted or candied and I find most snacking pecans are candied. My husband was the one who picked up these snacking pecans from Costco to try and review and I was happy to try them!

Other nut products from Costco are the Kirkland Signature Honey Roasted Macadamia Nuts, Nuts for Nature Nut & Seed Butter, Savanna Orchards Gourmet Honey Roasted Nuts, Kirkland Signature Premium Quality Whole Mixed Nuts, Kirkland Signature Butter Toffee Cashews, Hawaiian Sun Chocolate Covered Macadamia Nuts, Kirkland Signature Mixed Nut Butter with Seeds, Blue Diamond Spicy Dill Pickle Almonds, Kirkland Signature Almond Butter.

Location in Store

You can find these pecans in the snack section at Costco, the item number is 1524974.

Taste

The first thing I’ll point out is that they’re not very exciting! They aren’t candied and there isn’t any spice. These are simply just roasted whole pecans sprinkled with sea salt.

They’re tasty if you like pecans but they’re not something that’s so amazing you want to eat the whole container in a few sittings. One or two is satisfying. If you’re looking for plain, high-quality, salted pecans these are what you’re after!

Cost

The 737-gram container costs $19.99 Canadian at Costco. This doesn’t seem cheap but pecans are not cheap nuts so I think the price is actually reasonable.

Convenience

These aren’t just for snacking, I’m planning to use my container for salads and possibly in some baking! The plastic container with a lid keeps the pecans fresh.

The best-before date is 10 months from when I purchased the pecans but they won’t last that long in our house!

Nutrition

Calories

One half-cup serving contains 360 calories, 38 grams of fat, six grams of carbohydrates, four grams of fibre, two grams of sugar, five grams of protein and 100 milligrams of sodium. I like that the pecans are just lightly salted and not full of a ton of sodium.

Nuts are a dangerous food because a small serving is generally quite high in calories and fat! I personally think they’re much healthier than a bag of potato chips and see the fat and calories as healthy but I try to not eat too many.

Ingredients

There’s a short and sweet ingredients list. I find it interesting that Costco chooses to use highly refined peanut oil on these pecans because if someone has a peanut allergy but is not allergic to pecans they’d probably pass these up.

The pecans may contain peanuts, other tree nuts, milk, sesame, soy, wheat, mustard and sulfites.

Overall

Give it a try.

If you’re a big fan of pecans then you’d probably like these but I find them pretty bland! I am going to use up my container in salads but I wouldn’t crave these. To be honest, I usually don’t crave nuts as a snack!

Would you buy these? Why or why not?

  1. Most individuals with a peanut allergy can safely eat highly refined peanut oil when peanut oil is correctly processed and becomes highly refined, the proteins in the oil, which are the components in the oil that can cause allergic reaction, are removed. This makes the peanut oil allergen-free. This is not the case, however, for cold-pressed, expelled, extruded peanut oils.

  2. Think you might have a “cut and paste” error on this post from the keto nachos post. See the bottom of this page…

    Give it a try.

    If you know you like Doritos or nacho cheese flavored chips, I think you’ll like these! Yes they have a lot of protein for chips, but that doesn’t make them really good for you!

    If you’ve tried these chips, what do you think of them?

  3. Kirkland pecans are a cupboard staple in my kitchen. I toast them in the oven to get all that amazing taste without any added fat or salt (not that those aren’t tasty too!). These sound very good but likely wouldn’t last long for me. At that price, I’d rather do it myself and control the ingredients.
