Costco Orowheat Sandwich Thins Review

If you’re trying to make a less bready sandwich, you might want to check out these Orowheat Sandwich Thins from Costco. They look kind of like a flattened bagel without a hole in the middle and the package seems to suggest that they’re a healthier alternative to regular bread. Are they actually better for you than bread? Do they make a tasty sandwich? Read on to find out!

Other bread products from Costco are the Little Northern Bakehouse Seeds & Grains Gluten-Free Bread, Franz Keto Bread, Krusteaz Pumpkin Spice Quick Bread Mix, Tipiak Pull-Apart Cheese Bread, Kirkland Signature Cranberry Walnut Bread, Carbonaut Low Carb Keto Bread, Kirkland Signature Ciabatta Buns, Kirkland Signature Cheese Buns and the Kirkland Signature Artisan Baguettes.

I like that there’s olive oil instead of palm or canola oil.

Location in Store

I bought these at the Kalispell, Montana Costco in the bakery section and the item number is 1240921.

There isn’t too much to say about the Orowheat Sandwich Thins but I like them. They’re like a hybrid between bread and a bun. They look like a very flat hamburger bun.

They have a noticeable whole wheat flavor and there’s bits of crunchy texture coming from the grains on top and in the thins which I like.

I personally like that these are a bit sweet tasting but some people may find this a bit too sweet for bread. The texture of the thins is soft, slightly chewy and sturdy enough so you can easily make a sandwich (hot or cold) with them.


The pack comes with three packs of six sandwich thins and costs $7.99 USD so they’re not exactly cheap since they’re so thin. You’re definitely paying for the packaging as well as them being marketed as a healthy alternative to regular bread.

There are three six packs in the bag.


The thins come in a cardboard container wrapped in plastic. Once you open the plastic there’s no way to reseal it which I don’t love. The best before date is seven days from when I purchased them.

You can make open faced sandwiches with the thins.

These work well for sandwiches, mini pizas, tuna melts, toast and hamburgers. I think kids and adults would enjoy them equally.

Pretty thin!



One thin contains 150 calories, one and a half grams of fat, 290 milligrams of sodium, 28 grams of carbohydrates, three grams of fiber, three grams of sugar and six grams of protein.

That’s a decent amount of fiber and protein for a bread product that’s only 150 calories.

The ingredients list has pretty much what you’d expect for a store-bought bread product. I like that they use olive oil instead of canola or palm oil and appreciated that there are some whole grains listed.

The thins contain wheat, soy and sesame and may also contain milk and egg.

Give it a try!

These are pretty tasty, I enjoy the whole wheat flavor and I like that one thin has six grams of protein. There are a lot of other buns that are around 150 calories so I wouldn’t buy these solely based on them being low calorie.

  1. Why did Costco delete the sandwich thins from their ordering list? My family has been eating them for a long time. We were only buying them from Costco. They had the best price around. Did all the stores quit selling or just the Madison Hts, Michigan store? Please bring them back.

  2. We have been buying Sandwich Thins for more than 4 years, using them like burger buns, and absolutely recommend them.

  3. I am not a habitual bread consumer but I bought these recently and ended up using them as a pizza base. Sauce, spices, cheese and then off to the air fryer for 5 minutes. A quick lunch and they were good. I wish the nutrition profile was a bit better (less calories, using a whole grain flour, etc.) but overall, I thought these were good.
