Organic cooked beets ready to eat!

Last time I was at Costco I picked up these Love Beets Organic Cooked Beets to try and review! If you’re an athlete beets are rumored to increase your performance!
So what do these taste like? Like beets! There’s nothing else added to them. I will say that the texture is not super mushy and mildly firm while being soft enough to easily slice through with a butter knife (they’re already cooked). I added a little bit of sea salt to my beets and heated them in the oven. They turned out really delicious!
I paid $8.99 Canadian for the Costco Love Beets Organic Cooked Beets. Not exactly cheap. You’re definitely paying for the fact that they’re organic and for the packaging and convenience.
These are vacuum sealed and ready to eat! They’re already peeled and cooked! You get two packs in the plastic container of beets and each pack has about five beets in it. The best before date is about five months from the date I purchased the beets. As long as you don’t open the vacuum pack, once you open the vacuum pack you should consume the beets within one to three days and you have to keep the beets in the refrigerator. You can add the beets to a smoothie, salad or serve them as a side.
Beets are SUPER healthy for you! One beet is 30 calories, zero grams of fat, 85 mg of sodium, six grams of sugar, one gram of protein. The sugar content may seem a little high but it’s natural sugars. The ingredients list is only one ingredient, organic beets.
This isn’t the most exciting review but if you’re a fan of beets and want to skip the hassle of washing, peeling and cooking them these are awesome!
What’s your favorite way to enjoy beets?

We love these beets! I quarter them and roast them in the Air Fryer.
Preheat at 400 — while preheating put beets in bowl, add 1/2 tsp vegetable oil,
pinch of kosher salt/pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, celery seed, thyme, oregano,
judging for yourself on amounts of spices or whatever you like to use. Mix together with beets and add to air fryer at 400 for 10 to 15 min. Shake basket halfway through and keep an eye on them so they don’t burn. Better than roasting in the oven.
My son likes pickled beets and I was wondering if these can be pickled?
I’m not too sure! They’re cooked already.
I haven’t tried pickling these yet, however, when I’ve made pickled beets in the past, I use cooked beets, so I will be using these w no fear of waste.
I put my beets in a gallon jar w boiled eggs & love them. I use pickling spices, slivered purple onions, balsamic vinegar & water. Yum! I have even used okra that I have boiled. I keep my okra more on the crunchy side. I hate soggy okra!!! I’ve also added jalapeño. All of this makes for great snacks.
I use the pickled foods (drained) to serve over Romaine lettuce as a salad & have even crumbled feta cheese over it.
ALL GREAT WAYS TO EAT MY SUPER NUTRITIOUS BEETS!!!
I’ve been getting this for years from Costco and totally loved them. But lately in the last year, the quality has been lacking. A year ago, the beets were brown and had a rancid taste. And I just bought them again (different package design) and they were tough, mealy, dry , NOT sweet and had a hint of cinnamon flavor with the best by date being 4 or 5 months away. NOT what I was expecting. Will return these as well. Too bad.
This is the first time the beets & juice in the vacuum sealed bags have turned brown. Smell O:K. I cut into one & they are the same brown throughout. Is it safe to use them?
I wouldn’t. When did they expire?
Do the sealed unopened bag need to de refrigerated?
If these are past their “best by” date but still vacuum sealed, are they still good?
Oh that’s a good question! I’m not sure. I wouldn’t think so but you could try smelling them and looking at the texture etc.
would you freeze these ?
I probably would not but you could!
Advertised as 4 x 300g packs but when I got them home, there were only 3 packs!!! 🙁
When does the ready to eat beets come in at the store
In Sudbury Store
Hey Josee! You’d have to contact your local Costco and ask them. Hopefully soon!
