Review of Kirkland Signature Microwave Popcorn

by StevenHelmer

I purchased this product during one of our shopping trips at Costco. Read to find out what I think of it.

Product Description: Microwave buttered popcorn from the Kirkland Signature brand. My wife and I purchased a box of this popcorn (44 bags) while shopping at Costco last month and have been eating a couple bags of this product, usually while sitting on the couch watching a movie, a couple times each week.


We go through a lot of microwave popcorn in our house, mostly because we watch a lot of movies and it is our favorite movie-time snack. This is why, when we were shopping at Costco about a month ago, I decided to try the Kirkland Signature brand of microwave popcorn.

My main reason for doing this was I liked the value. I was able to purchase 44 bags of popcorn for what it would cost me to buy about half as many bags from our regular brands. And, after trying the popcorn, I can honestly say I have no complaints.

There are a couple things, in particular, I like about this product that I could not honestly say about other brands. One of the main ones is I like how this popcorn pops almost completely. There are a few kernels in the bottom of the bag (as is usually the case). But, it is a much smaller quantity than many other brands we've purchased and the bags are always full when we take them out of the microwave.

I also found I like the taste of this popcorn more than I do most other brands. There's a good quantity of salt and butter on it. But, it's not to the point the popcorn loses its own flavor. I've had quite a few other brands that were much too salty and tasted like they had fake butter on them. I don't get that when having this brand.

In fact, this is a product everyone in my family seems to enjoy. My daughters can share a bag and completely empty it while my wife and I can do the same (and likely could eat a bag each if we really wanted to). This is definitely a plus for us, especially given the lower cost per bag.

Final Opinion

This is a nice, bargain-priced brand of microwave popcorn that offers both quantity and quality. I do recommend it if you have a chance to buy it.

StevenHelmer, Thank you for product lines, pretty pictures and practical information.
It's always nice to know about the microwave popcorns that do not burn or leave grease or too many kernels or taste over- or under-salted or over- or under-buttered.

What would you all do with the kernels?
