Review of Kirkland Signature Cashew Clusters

by StevenHelmer

A purchased a bag of these while at Costco this past weekend. Read to find out why I recommend them.

Product Description: Cashew clusters from the Kirkland brand. The product consists of cashews, almonds and pumpkin seeds in a honey-glazed cluster form. I purchased a 2-pound bag of this product for $11.99 while doing some other shopping at Costco this past weekend. I started snacking on the clusters that evening.


My wife and I needed a few things from Costco this past weekend. But, as is often the case, we ended up buying quite a few items that weren't on our original list, mostly because they looked interesting. This included the bag of Kirkland Signature Cashew Clusters I saw on our way up to the checkout aisle.

At first, I made a serious effort to talk myself out of purchasing this item because we already were about $100 over budget. However, I like cashews and I figured it would be something my oldest daughter (who loves both nuts and pumpkin seeds) would enjoy too. As it turns out, it was actually a really good purchase.

I showed these to my daughter when we first got home and, seeing she was excited about trying them, opened the bag right away. After trying them, I can honestly say these exceeded my expectations.

The thing I found I enjoyed most about this product is the taste. I didn't read the ingredients when I purchased it and, because of that, didn't realize they were made with honey. After trying them and discovering that, I was completely happy with my purchase. The bite-sized clusters had a nice sweetness that perfectly complemented the natural flavor of the other ingredients. And, while I think I tasted a bit of salt on them, it wasn't anything that was overwhelming (which is what I was actually expecting to be the case).

My daughter shared this opinion (even though her younger sister is still on the fence about them) and, before going to her figure skating lesson yesterday, even grabbed a bowl of these for her pre-lesson snack while I, for my part, have been snacking on these instead of potato chips, something I can only assume would be at least a slightly healthier choice.

Final Opinion

When you consider the $11.99 purchase price wasn't much more than a 2-pound container of cashews would cost (and, depending on the brand, probably a little less), this definitely proved to be a good purchase. It's a great non-chip snack that has a lot of flavor and definitely something I would consider purchasing again.

My Grade: A

StevenHelmer, Thank you for product lines, pretty pictures and practical information.
In particular, I appreciate your sharing such a healthy dessert and snack idea. Almonds, cashews and pumpkin seeds clustered together by honey, what is there not to like?

Would the cluster taste a bit better or just different (but still competitive) without the slight salting? I'd like to try this for Halloween and Thanksgiving treats without the salt!
