Today I’m reviewing the Costco Synear Soup Dumplings! If you don’t already know I basically have tried all of the dumplings, gyoza and potstickers available at Costco and these Synear soup dumplings are new to my Costco so I decided to pick them up to review.

Similar products to these soup dumplings from Costco are the Bibigo Steamed Dumplings, Costco Sum-m! Chicken Gyoza Dumplings, Bibigo Beef Bulgogi Mandu, Bibigo Japchae Crispy Potstickers and the Minh Pork and Vegetable Egg Rolls.

Ahhh these are so delicious and amazing! Definitely one of the best dumplings I’ve tried from Costco for sure. There’s a generous amount of super flavorful chicken and onion filling in each dumpling that’s seasoned to perfection.

Using the pan-fry skillet method on the bag the dumplings turned out golden crispy on the bottom and pillowy soft on the top. The dough isn’t too thick and is a little delicate so you have to be careful when removing them from the skillet.

At first, I was a bit disappointed that these didn’t come with any dipping sauce but after trying them my husband and I both agreed that they don’t need any additional dipping sauce, they’re super tasty on their own and bursting with flavor.

I paid $14.99 Canadian for the 1.36 kg bag of dumplings. Which isn’t bad considering how good these are!

The best before date on the soup dumplings from Costco is almost a year from the date I purchased the dumplings. The dumplings need to be kept frozen and are a product of the USA.

The bag has cooking instructions to cook the dumplings. You can pan-fry the dumplings in a skillet or use the stove top steamer method. I used the skillet method and they became golden brown on the bottom quite quickly and steamed really well. Sean even commented that I had done a good job cooking the dumplings!

These Costco soup dumplings are a great appetizer or could even be an entree. We had them as our main dinner with a salad and I was satisfied! I ate about seven or eight and was full.

That’s actually not that many calories and fat but it is quite a bit of sodium! I actually felt pretty full after eating seven or eight dumplings for dinner.

I’m loving the ingredients list, there’s no preservatives and the ingredients are all things I recognize and know what they are! The delicious filling is chicken with onion so these don’t have any pork. They’re dairy-free but not gluten-free or vegetarian.

  1. Just finished a bag of Beef/Pork/Onion dumplings – Having lived in China and eaten many (and made) types of dumplings, these are really good. Low calories/fat/sugar and delicious! I have to mark purchases with the store name now so I can re-find them! These are on my Costco finds list – Costco has a good selection of tasty Asian foods. Really hope they are still there.

  2. I managed to snag a bag once. When I went back for more they were all gone. I think my Dartmouth CostCo will carry popular things once, and if it’s popular, the supply goes to other stores. Someone should investigate my insane conspiracy theory.

  3. Hi All,
    We recently come across this post and want to thank you all for the positive and encouraging feedback. Yes, we were told that our Chicken Soup Dumplings were flying off the shelves.

    Great feedback like that ensures that we keep getting orders from Costco. Meanwhile, we are also looking at introducing more products in the near future. Feel free to send me an email. I am happy to inform you once Costco restocks or when we launched other products.

    Best Regards,
    Helen C (Synear Foods)

  4. They have these in BC now! Got a bag at the Richmond BC Costco. Had them this even as a side dish with our wonton noodle soup. They were delish! Even my mother approved!

  5. About how many are there in a bag? How big are they? I appreciate all your reviews. You saved me from trying the pork schnitzel!
