Costco Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites Review

Outside of coffee, egg bites might be the most famous item on the menu at Starbucks. Now you can make them at home with these Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites from Costco. If you’re wondering how they compare to the egg bites sold at Starbucks and other ones sold at Costco like the Three Bridges Egg Bites in both price and taste, you’ve come to the right place!

Other breakfast foods from Costco are the Greenfield Natural Meat Co. Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausage Rounds, Spudlers Smoked Bacon Breakfast Hash, Jimmy Dean Sausage, Egg & Cheese Croissant Sandwiches, Veggies Made Great Spinach Egg White Frittatas, El Monterey Breakfast Wraps, Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix and the Belgian Boys Traditional Crepes.

Location in Store

These are located in the refrigerated section at Costco, I bought them in Kalispell, Montana and the item number is 1002094.

I love how crisp they got on top.

Taste

These egg bites are quite tasty! They texture of the bites is moderately dense, they’re not really fluffy or light but not super dense either. The first thing I noticed looking at them is they’re a bit greasy, likely due to the cheese and bacon.

The cheese taste is not very strong, it’s noticeable but doesn’t overpower the flavor of the egg and bacon. The egg bites have some smokiness to them which I enjoy. The bacon is not evenly distributed so the bites vary a little that way. The parts with more of the bacon have a bit more smokiness. I like the crispiness from the air fryer.

A little greasy.

I feel like comparing these Starbucks Egg Bites to the Three Bridges ones isn’t completely fair because we did those in the microwave. The Starbucks bites have a bit of crunch on the outside which I prefer. Compared to the ones you get at actual Starbucks they taste pretty much the same to me.

Cost

The box comes with ten egg bites and costs $7.97 USD at Costco, which is really cheap compared to the price you’d pay for egg bites at an actual Starbucks. I think they’re $2.50 USD each at Starbucks in the U.S. and here in Canada, two egg bites cost $5.65 CAD. I’m sure it would be even cheaper to make your own egg bites from scratch, but that’s a lot more work!

Convenience

The box recommends air frying the egg bites so that’s what we did! It would have been easier to microwave them than hauling my huge air fryer up from the basement and using it but I’m glad we did cook them in the air fryer, I think they taste better that way.

I used my air fryer to heat the egg bites!

The use-by or freeze-before date was only a week from when we purchased the egg bites so we ended up freezing them. If frozen, the egg bites can be thawed in the refrigerator overnight. These are great for breakfast, brunch, snack or even a light lunch!

Kids seem to really like them too, especially toddlers like my 17-month-old daughter!

Nutrition

Calories

Two egg bites contain 280 calories, 19 grams of fat, 640 milligrams of sodium, eight grams of carbohydrates, zero grams of fiber, one gram of sugar and 17 grams of protein. These aren’t low in calories, fat or sodium but they are low in carbs!

The flavor of these egg bites is gruyere and uncured bacon so I expect them to be high in calories and fat.

Ingredients

The ingredients list is pretty simple with things you’d expect in an egg bite! I was a little surprised to see the hot sauce listed because I didn’t taste much heat in these. I don’t love the canola oil listed but I appreciate that they’re isn’t any wheat ingredients listed.

The egg bites contain eggs and milk.

If you often find yourself in the Starbucks drive-thru buying egg bites, you can save yourself some money by buying these ones. They taste very similar and are nearly as convenient too!

  1. They cost $14.95 here in Austin, TX. I’d like to point out that the sodium is 30% of all the sodium you should have a in day. In just TWO egg bites. It is high in protein though at 17g, but I don’t know if it’s worth it for the amount of saturated fat in them. I appreciate the heating instructions because like you indicated, i did toss mine out 🙂

  2. Wonderful page but in your nutrition section I believe you put down it has 17g of sugar. I think it was a typo and should have been protein. Love these egg bites and Costco.

  3. Hi! I live in Kalispell as well. Could you please tell me where you found these in the store for $7.97? I was finding them there for $14.97, and last week I couldn’t find them at all…?

  4. Do you understand the concept of sous vide? Any heating to a temperature above that at which they were originally cooked totally negates the concept. These are just omelettes.
