So I like to try different low calorie, high protein snacks that I find at Costco. I posted a review for the Costco Kirkland Signature Steak Strips so if you’re interested in that review check it out. Today I’m reviewing the Costco Kirkland Signature Turkey Jerky. I’m not a huge fan of jerky so for this review I’m relying on my husband who likes it for his expert opinion!

My husband actually really liked this! I didn’t mind it at all either but as I said before I’m not the biggest jerky fan. This was slightly smoky, chewy and a tad sweet, almost like a smoky/maple flavor. Overall very flavorful! My husband pointed out that he really didn’t notice much of a difference between the turkey jerky and regular beef jerky. The strips come in different shapes, sizes and thicknesses. It’s now so chewy that it’s difficult to eat either.

I paid $15.99 Canadian for this 383 gram bag of turkey jerky. A little expensive in my opinion but not overly so!

Perfect for a low calorie, low fat and convenient snack! Once you open the turkey jerky you have to keep it in the fridge. The best before date is about eight months from the date I purchased the jerky.

Three pieces of jerky is 80 calories, nine grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fat, eight grams of sugar, 10 grams of protein and 460 mg of sodium. A little high in sugar and sodium but low in calories and fat.

I probably wouldn’t buy these again just because I’m not a jerky fan but my husband will happily finish our bag!

  1. Costco no longer carries their Kirkland brand, or any brand of turkey jerky. Is this temporary or is it a permanent decision to discontinue Kirkland Turkey Jerky? I will be very disappointed if this is permanent. I love Kirkland Turkey Jerky!

  2. My mother and grandmother love your Turkey Jerky. There is only one problem,
    1/3 of each package is usually TOO HARD to eat. At first I thought nothing of it and would throw away the 1/3 too hard product. Then I started getting angry, as I realize there is a product control issue that is out of hand, or they are getting rid of old product and mixing it with new. So now I take the “hard” pieces back to Costco, Burbank.
    I combine 3 of the l/3 hard product into one bag – they refund me my money for one bag. This has been going on for 6 to 7 months. Recently, the return department is refusing to refund. I then have to “demand” to see the manager of the store. They refuse and it turns into a “bad scene”, They refund while everyone in line has now become aware of the Costco “CON’. Yes, Costco is advertising to all it’s customers a product that they refuse to correct….or whatever their corrupt scheme is. Please respond to me and let me know why this happens. Is it quality control, should I go to a higher power. to be continued …..

  3. I’m a jerky fan and the Kirkland turkey jerky has an excellent flavor and the bite size pieces are well made. However you must have a lot of drinks available because it will have your mouth so dried out after a few pieces.

    I am probably comparing it to Mahogany Smoked Meats in Bishop CA as there turkey jerky has a better moisture involved.

  4. Hi, I live alone. I would like to eat about an ounce a day for a snack. So for how many days is it good after opening. For how long can it stay in the car without refrigeration? I want to have it to eat after I get out of the pool.

    • They were in 2022, however the last few times I’ve been to Costco here in March 2023, I have not been able to get it. I fear it may have been discontinued. They seem to do that to things I like. Fruit & Nut Medley for example. Fortunately I was able to find that thru and I get 5 pound bags delivered.
