Costco Pierre Biscuiterie French Butter Cookies Review

Costco is known for limiting the number of similar items they sell in their warehouses to simplify the shopping experience for members, but when it comes to Christmas treats, they offer an impressive (overwhelming?) variety! These Pierre Biscuiterie French Butter Cookies are new to my local Costco this year. Are they good enough to stand out from the crowd and maybe even return in future years, or are there other better options available?

These are butter cookies with a chocolate coating!

Location in Store

I found these cookies in the Christmas seasonal aisle at Costco, near all the Christmas chocolates and sweets. The item number is 1731566.


These cookies are pretty simple. They’re thin, crispy butter cookies coated in chocolate. The cookie component is the same for both the milk and dark chocolate. The only difference is the chocolate coating the outside.

The cookie part is very plain, but it does have a noticeable buttery flavor. It’s a bit artificial/processed tasting, but still enjoyable.

The chocolate covering the cookies tastes like decent-quality chocolate.

The chocolate in the cookies is good. It’s flavorful, rich and fairly smooth. Most of the flavor comes from the chocolate, which is a good thing. Basically, the cookies taste like crispy chocolate cookies with a hint of butteryness.

A very simple biscuit!


The 540-gram box of cookies costs $13.99 Canadian. That’s not super expensive considering they’re from France but they’re also not particularly amazing.

I prefer milk chocolate over dark.

I think I’d rather put my 14 dollars towards a different kind of cookie but that’s because I like not-so-simple, really rich, indulgent cookies!

Thin and crispy.


There are four sleeves of cookies in the box. Two sleeves of milk chocolate and two sleeves of dark chocolate and each sleeve has 10 cookies in it. This is convenient because you can easily share a sleeve or two with family or friends if you don’t want to a ton of cookies.

There are 40 cookies in total in the box.

The best-before date is about nine months from when I purchased the cookies. These are really simple cookies so they’re great for a mid-morning or afternoon snack and work well as a light dessert. They’re also nice as a dunking cookie for milk, tea or coffee!



Two milk chocolate cookies contain 140 calories, seven grams of fat, 18 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, 10 grams of sugar, two grams of protein and 35 milligrams of sodium.

That’s actually not that much sugar for two cookies! They’re not “diet” cookies but they have less sugar, calories and fat than a lot of cookies do. I think probably because they’re so basic and simple.

The ingredients for the milk chocolate and dark chocolate cookies are the exact same other than the kind of chocolate. I like that the ingredients list is short and sweet with butter, flour, sugar and egg being the main ingredients.

The ingredients listed are very similar to the ones you’d use to bake a batch of cookies at home. These cookies contain wheat, milk and eggs and may contain tree nuts, soy and sesame seeds.

Convenience: 10/10

Nutrition: 1/10 Points for the simple ingredients list that’s not full of a ton of preservatives and chemicals.


Give it a try!

These cookies are perfectly fine, but nothing special. If you like a simpler biscuit with a high-quality chocolate coating, you’ll like these.
