Costco Mt. Olive Kosher Baby Dill Pickles Review

I have to admit that some reviews are easier to get excited about than others. I get a lot more excited about reviewing the latest offerings from the pre-made meal or bakery sections at Costco than reviewing boring everyday items like these pickles! With that being said, these can be products you find yourself buying over and over again. Will you want to keep a jar of these Mt. Olive Kosher Baby Dill Pickles in your fridge all the time?

If you like dill, Costco carries a few dill pickle-flavored products! Summer Fresh Spicy Dill Pickle Dip, Blue Diamond Dill Pickle Almonds, Taylor Farms Dill Pickle Salad, Miss Vickie’s Spicy Dill Pickle Chips, Matt & Steve’s Extreme Pickle Spears and the Partini Fried Dill Pickle Chips.

Location in Store

These are located in the aisle with the other jarred pickled vegetables, oils and condiments. The item number is 1761548.

Taste

I don’t like these dill pickles at all, I’ll stick with Bicks. These are super big dill pickles and I think because they’re so large it’s hard for them to be really crispy. I like a really crisp, crunchy pickle. These are a bit flaccid and soft which I find disappointing.

These baby dills aren’t so “baby”!

I also find the flavor a bit odd, it’s a muted mustard flavor instead of the strong, tangy, slightly sour, vinegar flavor I’m used to.

Cost

The jar is two liters and costs $6.99 Canadian at Costco which is pretty cheap for such a huge jar.

These aren’t as crisp as I’d hoped.

Convenience

If you buy this jar of dill pickles you better have a lot of room in your refrigerator because this jar is massive and takes up a lot of room. Once opened the pickles need to be stored in the refrigerator. The best-before date is just over two years from when I purchased them.

There are a lot of ways you can use dill pickles, on burgers, pizza, on cheese boards, with brats and even used to make dips.

Nutrition

Calories

One dill pickle contains five calories, zero grams of fat, one gram of carbohydrates, zero grams of fibre, one gram of sugar, less than a gram of protein and 510 milligrams of sodium. That’s a ton of sodium for one pickle but one pickle is also HUGE so you may not eat an entire pickle in one go.

Ingredients

The ingredients list is pretty straight forward but I don’t love seeing the sodium benzoate and tartrazine when other major pickle brands don’t have these ingredients in their pickles.

The pickles may contain mustard which I find it odd that they only may contain it because they sure taste like mustard!

Overall

Walk on by!

I won’t be buying these pickles again and I’m sad they come in such a large jar because now I have a lot of pickles to eat that I don’t like very much!

  1. Have to disagree with your review on this one. I had some Bicks from Costco to compare and there was no comparison in flavor. These were much better. A lot like the zesty Vlasic ones. Much more vinagery and tangy than the normal Bicks sold at Costco and jar was same size. I love them! They taste more european style. Different strokes for different folks…

  2. All of Mt Olive pickles are terrible so I’m not surprised you did not like them. I’ll stick with my Vlasic or Famous Dave’s.
