These Costco pineberries are a unique find!
Today I’m reviewing something from Costco I’ve never seen or tasted before! Costco Pink-A-Boo Pineberries!
Other fruit and vegetables I’ve reviewed from Costco is the Costco HBF Kiwi Berries, Costco Kirkland Signature Apple Snack, Costco Taylor Farms Dill Pickle Salad Kit, Costco Zespri Golden Kiwi, Costco Kirkland Signature Organic Seaweed Snack and the Costco Cotton Candy Grapes.
Location in Store
I found these pineberries hiding on the floor in the corner of the produce room at Costco. There were only two left. The item number is 1538556.
So what do pineberries from Costco taste like? Well they taste similar to a strawberry but with a hint of pineapple flavor. The pineapple flavor isn’t very strong and only slightly noticeable.
I found the pineberries that were less pink and more white tasted distinctly different from strawberries while the ones that were pinker tasted more similar to strawberries. Pineberries also taste less tart than regular strawberries and I find they have a unique buttery flavor.
The pineberries from Costco taste different than any berry I’ve had but I don’t find the flavor absolutely blows my socks off.
The 283 gram of pineberries from Costco is $5.99 Canadian which is pretty expensive for such few berries. I can easily polish off a container this size in one sitting.
The pineberries at Costco are ripe and ready to eat! I think the best way to eat pineberries is just by themselves, no sugar, not in smoothies and not on ice cream or in yogurt.
There are 29 calories, zero grams of fat, five grams of carbohydrates, five grams of sugar and one gram of fiber in a 100 gram serving of pineberries.
Health Benefits of Pineberries
Pineberries are good source of folate, vitamin C and phosphorus. The Costco Wish Farms Pink-A-Boo Pineberries are non-GMO and naturally grown.
Give it a try!
I think these are fun to try once! I won’t be repurchasing them because I love regular strawberries just as much but I’m glad to say I know what a pineberry tastes like!
