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.

Taste

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.

So pretty looking!

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.

Cost

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.

Convenience

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.

  1. Based on the price alone, I would never buy these so I appreciate your review just out of curiosity. I also never buy California strawberries since they don’t come close in flavour to our local ones.
    Thanks!
