Time to do a bit of an interesting review for something I wouldn’t normally buy! Today I’m reviewing the Costco Tasso’s Papandoro Peppers Stuffed With Feta & Kalamata Olives.

Some other jarred products from Costco are the Paisley Farm Four Bean Salad, Something Special Antipasto and the Matt & Steve’s Extreme Pickle Spears.

Location in Store

You can find these stuffed peppers in the aisle with all the other jarred vegetables the item number is 1463070.

Taste

To start, I actually wasn’t at all excited to try these but they’re pretty good! They have a nice sweet pepper smell. The pepper tastes sweet with a little bit of heat and has feta cheese and chunks of olive in the middle.

If you’re expecting a whole olive in the middle, that’s not the case, just bits of olive are in the feta cheese and there’s not a ton of olive in them. I don’t like olives but it isn’t enough to ruin these for me, there is only like a hint of olive.

These are just very slightly crunchy but as you’d expect with a jarred item, they’re more soft than crunchy. The flavors are nicely balanced, you don’t taste strong feta but you notice it. They’d be great on a charcuterie plate, I’d definitely have a couple of these if I saw them served. The taste isn’t overly salty and they come packed In sunflower oil. I’d prefer if they were packed in olive oil.

There’s a lot of variation in the size and shape of the peppers, some have a ton of filling, some don’t have as much. The smaller ones have more of a pepper flavor because they don’t have as much filling but it’s not that big of a difference.

Convenience

The best before date listed on my pepper jar is nine months from the date I purchased the peppers. They come in a resealable glass jar and should be refrigerated after opening.

I think these are perfect for a charcuterie board, a salad or to enjoy with some crackers and cold cuts for a quick lunch! Also, you could snack of them alone. I don’t think kids would enjoy this or dare try them haha.

Calories

According to the jar, one pepper is 130 calories, 14 grams of fat, two grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, two grams of sugar, one gram of protein and 45 mg of sodium. Wow! That’s a lot of calories and fat for just one. I doubt the really small ones are as many calories and fat, I would think this is the nutrition facts for the large peppers.

  1. Pretty sure the fat count is so high because it’s stored in oil…. 14g of oil/fat is almost a whole tbsp worth of oil/fat in the serving they are suggesting.

    Peppers are negligible in fat. The feta/olive filling would have some, but if you drain them well, the fat content would drop significantly. I’m sure at least a couple tsps would drain out reducing the calorie count by maybe 80 per serving.

    Anyway, I love them!!!!

  2. I haven’t tried these but I have tried the Papadoro Peppers Stuffed with Cream Cheese & Jalapeno and they are amazing. I think I bought them at Costco but I’ve been looking for them over the past few weeks and haven’t seen them there. I’ll have to try the ones with Feta and Kalamata Olives. Actually I have never seen those in Costco either. These are two extremely good products and hope that Costco will stock them up again.

  3. My wife brought home a jar of these. We were both extremely delighted with the flavor. When returned to buy more jars, there were none to be found. We are fearful that they weren’t a big enough seller to continue offering them in the store.

  4. We found these to be delicious! Have already purchased a second jar and the first one is not empty! As an FYI, the fat content is listed as 14g for 1 piece or a 30 g serving. I weighed it out, and 30g represents about 4 peppers. (The 4 peppers I weighed came to 33g). Still a pretty hefty fat count, but a bit easier to take.
