Costco Marie Morin Crème Brûlée Review

Costco’s crème brûlée is tasty, fun and a little bit fancy!

Today I’m reviewing the Costco Marie Morin Crème Brûlée. Costco has carried some version of this for a long time and it seems to been a favorite among Costco shoppers.

Other similar desserts from Costco are the Delici Belgian Chocolate Soufflé, The Sticky Toffee Pudding Co. Sticky Toffee Pudding, Dolce Mia Chocolate Dream Champagne Flutes, Dessert Italiano Tiramisu, Delici Sea Salt Caramel Mousse and Dessert Italiano Caramel Macchiato.

Location in Store

You can find the crème brûlée in the refrigerated dessert section at Costco, by the fresh pasta and refrigerated appetizers. The item number is 5056004.

These crème brûlée are moderately sweet and very creamy! They have a custard-like texture and I love how light tasting they are. It doesn’t leave you feeling super full or like you indulged too much after enjoying one.

Creamy vanilla custard!

The custard itself is very smooth and creamy, it’s also not too firm. It’s a medium firmness so it maintains its form in the glass dish but melts in seconds in your mouth. The custard isn’t obscenely sweet but also doesn’t have any dimensional flavor going on. There’s a slight hint of vanilla but mainly just tastes to me of a simple, monotone sweet custard.

Such a light dessert!

The “burned” or caramelized sugar on top definitely increases the overall appeal of the dessert. I found it to be a little difficult to shatter into smaller pieces so I ended up having plenty of mouthfuls of big pieces of caramelized sugar and then a few of plain custard. .


These actually aren’t as expensive as I would expect them to be. You get eight crème brûlée desserts in the package for $10.99 Canadian. That’s less than $1.50 per dessert which is pretty reasonable considering the amount of packaging they come in.

Each Costco Marie Morin Crème Brûlée comes with a foil lid and attached sugar packet.

I will mention that the amount of actual crème brûlée in each dish isn’t a ton but enough to satisfy my sweet tooth!

These need to be kept refrigerated, so make sure you have some room in your fridge for them! They also can’t be frozen – the box says do not freeze. Each dessert comes in its own individual glass bowl with a foil seal over top. There are two ways you can prepare the crème brûlée to eat it.

Preparation instructions for the Marie Morin Crème Brûlée.
Preparation instructions.

You can place the crème brûlée in your oven and use the broiler or you can use a kitchen torch. Each crème brûlée has an accompanying packet of sugar that you pour over top the custard and you can either set the crème brûlée in the oven to burn/caramelize the sugar or you can choose to use a kitchen torch.

My husband was adamant that we buy a kitchen torch for these and I have to admit it’s really fun to use! The crème brûlée also turns out really well this way.

The ingredients list is actually a lot shorter than I expect with ingredients I would expect to see and then some chemical-sounding ingredients at the end. The crème brûlée is gluten-free for anyone reading with celiac or gluten intolerance!

  1. Tried the Marie Marin creme brûlée. For the price and convenience it’s not bad. Unfortunately they add carrageenan and other ingredients to not only make it have a longer shelf life but to thicken it up much like the fake Greek yogurts do. 7/10

  2. I am no longer able to get the Marie Marin creme brûlée or the caramel flan at my local Costco. Supposedly, Costco is having their bakery produce a replacement. I recycle the jars by adding a non- flammable decoration. The jars are then used as tea light holders.

  3. I love this product. I thought they were light and not overly sweet. Loved the topping. I didn’t broil or torch them, just added the topping. I love restaurant creme brulee and I thought this product was comparable, even considering that it is a ready to eat desert. I would buy it again and be comfortable serving it to dinner guests. I did not have any trouble with removing the foil lid, it came off easily and without residue.

  4. I was happy with the dessert and served it for company last night. However, the foil could not be completely removed from the edges, even after scraping with a sharp knife. I served them anyway and put them in the dishwasher and this morning tried to remove the foil with a knife. Nothing could be removed. Therefore, I must put them in recycling rather than reusing them again. Sadly, I won’t buy this product again because of the foil.

  5. This is a horrible product! The worst part is the foil on top of each one that is difficult to get off. I cut myself at least twice and had to use pliers! The taste is ok, but about as faux brûlée on top as you can find. Will never buy again!

  6. This is a product that i always enjoyed and couldnt wait to get but my recent experience wasnt a good one, so far out of 8 deserts, three were not sealed and leaked out so i had to destroy them, very disappointed
