Costco Partini Fried Dill Pickle Chips Review

I love the frozen appetizer section at Costco. There’s a wide and ever-changing selection of unique appetizers that you don’t see in other grocery stores. I have a few favorites that I find myself purchasing over and over again. I enjoy deep-fried appetizers (who doesn’t?!) and the flavor of dill pickle, so I was excited to try these Partini Fried Dill Pickle Chips when they showed up in my local warehouse.

I’m a fan of dill pickles but my husband is not crazy about them. The Taylor Farms Dill Pickle Salad is my absolute favorite and I also love dill pickle chips so seeing these Partini Fried Dill Pickle Chips during my Costco run had me excited.

If you’re like me and also love dill pickle there are a few products from Costco with it in them! The Summer Fresh Spicy Dill Pickle Dip, Blue Diamond Spicy Dill Pickle Almonds and the Miss Vickie’s Spicy Dill Pickle Chips.

A similar product to these breaded dill pickles is the Partini Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos and The Original Poppers Stuffed Jalapenos.

These can be found in the freezer aisle near the other frozen appetizers and the item number is 1713628.


We actually had to make two batches of these. We followed the package instructions for the first batch and used our air fryer to heat the dill pickle chips and they turned out pretty soggy. They weren’t crispy and the flavor from the dill pickle under the breading was very strong. They weren’t bad, just not great.

Crispy and golden brown on the outside.

For the second batch, we doubled the time we cooked them but still used our air fryer. The dill pickle chips came out perfectly crispy and pretty tasty. One thing we notice is that when they’re crispier the dill pickle flavor is more discreet.

These aren’t amazing but when they’re cooked enough they’re decently tasty. They’re seasoned well and quite salty. I wish there was some kind of dip that came with them, something like a ranch or tzatziki.

I feel like they’re better with dip.


The 907-gram box costs $11.99 Canadian which isn’t unreasonable. There are enough dill pickle chips in the tray or four adults to have these as an appetizer twice.

It’s easier to buy something like this rather than making your own breaded dill pickles. These Partini ones from Costco are ready to eat after heating them for a few minutes. The best-before date on the dill pickle chips is one year from when I purchased them and they need to be kept frozen.

The chips come in a plastic tray inside the box. One thing that’s not convenient is that the cooking time was completely off for us and we ended up heating the chips double what the box called for.

These make a great appetizer or snack and I think both kids and adults will enjoy them. I do think they’re tastier with dip and a dip that I suggest for them is the Costco Summer Fresh Spicy Dill Pickle Dip!



Seven dill pickle chips contain 240 calories, 19 grams of fat, 17 grams of carbohydrates, two grams of fibre, one gram of sugar, two grams of protein and 650 milligrams of sodium.

That’s not bad for seven chips but it’s also not great, It’s easy to eat way more than seven of the chips. That’s a lot of fat and a hefty amount of sodium with very little protein.

Nutrition facts.


The ingredients list is what I expected, lots of ingredients I don’t love to see like canola oil, modified palm oil, sugar and soy protein isolation.

It’s weird because there’s no milk listed in the ingredients but the label states they contain milk. I had to do some research and the milk is coming from the sodium caseinate. I think it’s a bit disappointing that these could be easily made vegan but aren’t because of the one ingredient.

They also contain mustard, wheat and soy.

Give it a try!

I think if you’re a dill pickle fanatic you’ll probably enjoy these but they’re not something I’d buy again or feel is that amazing tasting. They’re good just not extraordinary!

  1. Very disappointed. The cooking time was not nearly sufficient. It took twice as long as the cooking instructions indicate. They came out crispy after cooking for 15 minutes in the air fryer rather than the recommended 8 minutes. The flavour was fine but they were very chewy. When you’d bit into it, the entire piece of pickle would pull apart.

  2. Absolutely disgusting. And to charge $16 is a rip off for inedible mush. I am returning to Costco. The person who wrote this article clearly is being paid for positive reviews

  3. Sorry will not be buying again they were soggy and had weird funky taste I can only describe as tasted like fish My husband ate them so to not waste them but he wasn’t a fan said don’t buy these again! I couldn’t bring myself to eating anymore of them. Yuck!!

  4. They were horrible. No matter what I tried, they came out soggy. I even tried deep frying them, and the coating would fall off. I threw the rest into the composter.

  5. Cooked it first time 15 minutes in the air fryer and they were perfect. Definitely a favourite now!

    Nice thing about an air fryer is if it’s not cooked enough just put it in longer until it’s crispy.

  6. Had a chance to try these. Yeah, certainly don’t follow the instructions for air fryer. They were quite soggy. We’ll try 15 minutes next time. Don’t think they will be a favorite.
