These Costco mango cakes are small in size and big in calories!
Today I’m reviewing a unique item I found at Costco recently. The Costco Sugar Bowl Bakery Mango Cake! I absolutely love the flavor of mango so I wanted to try these mini cakes.
Some other mango products I love from Costco are the Kirkland Signature Dark Chocolate Covered Mangoes, Garden Fresh Gourmet Mango Peach Habanero Salsa, Costco Kirkland Signature Organic Dried Mangoes and the Costco Mamamango Mango Moscato.

You can find the mango cake in the bakery section at Costco. The item number is 1609673.
The first thing I noticed about these cakes is that they’re very greasy! They leave grease on your fingers and on the plate as you eat them. For the amount of oil and butter they must have in them, they’re not as moist as you would expect. They have a slight amount of crunchiness/dryness to them, though not in an unpleasant way.
The mango flavor is noticeable and enjoyable, though it is more of an artificial flavor than a natural one, the ingredients list does not have any artificial flavors though! You get the odd small chunk of dried mango, which is really nice but the cakes need double the pieces of mango!
I love almost anything mango, so I like these cakes. However, I wish they were less greasy (and lower in calories!). I’ve had lots of delicious and very moist cakes that weren’t the least bit greasy, so I’m not sure why these Mango Cakes are like this. Maybe it’s a byproduct of the company trying to make the cakes stay moist in the package for a while?
The cost of the mango cakes is $10.99 Canadian there’s about 27 mini mango cakes in the container.
The best before date listed on the cakes is almost two months from the date I purchased them! That’s a really long best before date for a baked good. The cakes are individually wrapped and then come in a plastic resealable container.
These are great for breakfast, a snack or dessert. You can easily share the cakes with others as well.
The amount of calories is kind of shocking. For three small cakes there are 410 calories, 26 grams of fat, 42 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, 25 grams of sugar, three grams of protein and 150 milligrams of sodium. That’s a lot of calories for three small cakes! I could easily eat three of these.
There’s actually dried mango in the mango cakes which is a positive! There’s ingredients like you’d expect to see, flour, sugar, unsalted butter, canola oil. The mango cake contains eggs, milk, wheat and barley. They may contain soy and tree nuts.
Give it a try!
If you like mango like I do you might want to try these and you’re not worried about calories you may want to try these for something different.
