Costco Kirkland Signature Sriracha Seasoning Review

Sriracha is a sauce, but this Kirkland Signature Sriracha Flavoured Seasoning promises to bring the popular spicy taste to new foods in a dry powdery form. I was curious to see how closely the taste of the seasoning would match the classic sauce and what I might be able to do with it. Is this something every sriracha fan will want to buy, or are they better off sticking with the traditional sauce?

It smells super strong!

The first thing I noticed when I opened the container is how strong the sriracha scent is!

As a rub on chicken, it’s enjoyable and adds a mild amount of heat. The seasoning does add a bit of sriracha flavor but not much despite using a generous amount of seasoning on the chicken. It’s good, I like it but if you want a really strong sriracha flavor you might be disappointed.

I even used the sriracha seasoning on an egg!

On the egg I had to add a lot of the seasoning to taste it and then I found it a little on the sweet side. It’s a somewhat comparable flavor to just putting hot sauce on an egg. However, I found the seasoning had an odd bit of sweetness when I used it on an egg and I didn’t like the sweetness.


The 425-gram container of seasoning costs $9.99 Canadian, which isn’t bad for such a large container.

When I used it as a rub it kind of just melted because of all the sugar in it. I was worried because I wanted to cook my chicken breasts in a cast iron skillet so I thought it might burn in the skillet because of all the sugar. It didn’t end up burning, it seemed fine but it was kind of messy putting it on as a rub.

Using the seasoning as a rub is a bit messy.

The best-before date is about ten months from when I purchased the seasoning. There are many ways you could use this, on eggs, on meat, on popcorn and in dips are just a few ideas I have.

1/4 of a teaspoon contains three calories, zero grams of fat, one gram of carbohydrates, zero grams of protein and 50 milligrams of sodium. That’s not that much sodium but a quarter of a teaspoon really isn’t that much at all.

Nutrition facts.


The first ingredient is sugar so that’s where I get that sweet flavor from. I don’t love seeing all the additives like silicone dioxide, calcium cilicate and maltodextrin.

Maltodextrin could have wheat in it so I’m not sure if this seasoning is gluten-free. It does not say gluten-free but it also does not say it may contain wheat. The seasoning does appear to be dairy-free and vegan.


Taste: 6/10

Cost: 7/10

Convenience: 8/10 You have to figure out what to use it on and experiment with it.

Nutrition: 4/10 Not at all nutritious but low in carbs, calories and fat.


Give it a try!

I like it but in my opinion, they used a little too much sugar. I would rather just use sriracha sauce.

  1. I have been adding it to some of the rubs I make for meat and chicken when I’m prepping meals to be cooked on the smoker. Since I normally add salt in those rubs, I can adjust for salt level so it’s not a big deal (other than I’d rather just buy and add salt separately vs laying “sriracha prices” for it, not that this is really expensive.

    I don’t mind it as an ingredient but as noted in this post, it isn’t a really strong sriracha flavour and I doubt I would buy it again. Not a bad product but not good enough to warrant the shelf space when I have other pepper seasonings (smoked paprika, ancho, etc) to work with. This is not hot like sriracha is, and isn’t very distinctive.

    This product isn’t awful, but it is “not a re-buy” for me.

  2. I have been using it for over a year. I like the taste; but not the built in salt. I use one table spoon for stir fry ( 300 grams sodium). I would rather to have it salt free, So I can add 1 teaspoon of low sodium Morton salt for taste.
