Costco Pillsbury Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies Review

Selling a new type of cookie at Costco can’t be easy! You have to compete against the great selection of Kirkland Signature cookies in the bakery and lots of good packaged options like the Kirkland Signature Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies too. I love most cookies though, so when I saw these Pillsbury Soft Baked Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies in my local warehouse, I figured they were worth trying. I was mostly intrigued by the “soft baked” claim on the box. Is that enough to make these cookies stand out from the crowd of other options at Costco?

I love cookies, there’s no doubt about that so whenever I see a new kind of cookie at Costco whether it be packaged or in the bakery section.

Some of my favorite cookies from Costco are the Kirkland Signature Raspberry Crumble Cookies, Kirkland Signature Chocolate Lover’s Cookie Pack, Desserts On Us Laceys Macadamia Milk Chocolate Cookies, Leclerc Celebration Milk Chocolate Cookies, Kirkland Signature Ginger Cookies and the Kirkland Signature Orange Pecan Cookies.

Location in Store

The box of Pillsbury cookies can be found in the snack section at Costco, near the front of the store. The item number is 1571528.

They look similar to homemade.


The cookies are soft and chewy. They’re nice and sweet and they don’t really taste like most chocolate chip cookies I’ve had but they’re good. Eating one of these cookies reminds me of eating a McDonald’s burger, it’s good but it’s not really a burger.

There’s a good amount of chocolate chips in each cookie and the chocolate flavor is noticeable. The dough doesn’t have a ton of flavor, it’s just kind of sweet but they’re overall pretty tasty.


The 1.17-kilogram box that contains 28 bags of cookies costs $16.79 Canadian at Costco which definitely isn’t cheap. Each bag contains five small soft baked cookies.

There are enough chocolate chips in each cookie.


These are really convenient to bring to school or work for a sweet treat. They’re nut-free so that means they’re school safe! I also find the packaging easy to open which would make them convenient for kids. The best-before date is six months from the date I purchased them.

I think kids would absolutely love these and they’d be perfect for school, camping, road trips or trips to the beach or park.

These aren’t healthy at all but there aren’t many packaged cookies that are healthy. I don’t love that they have oil instead of butter but I’m sure that’s a way to extend the expiry date. These contain eggs, milk, soy and wheat.

Give it a try!

These are yummy, I like the chewiness but they are pretty artificial tasting. It’s easy to eat a whole bag without realizing it.

  1. I think butter would be better health wise than palm and canola oil shortening. Hydrogenated fats are not great.

  2. I’m not really sure how something can be “yummy” and “artificial tasting” at the same time. Doesn’t one exclude the other? To me, anything artificial tasting is a big nope. Thanks for the review.😁

    • Hey Jan! I know it sounds weird, here’s an example! I love real coffee but I also absolutely love Tim Horton’s Iced Caps in the summer. In my opinion, they’re so far from being a real cappucino but I still crave them and enjoy them.
