After an extended disappearance during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic and rumors that they had been permanently discontinued, Costco’s popular Organic Pine Nuts are finally back on the shelf. However, the price has gone up a bit, to the dismay of some customers.
Prior to 2020, a 1.5-lb bag of Organic Pine Nuts at Costco could be found for just $23, which is significantly cheaper than what can be found elsewhere. However, since the product was reintroduced, that price has increased by about $12. As we will dig into below, Costco still offers a majorly competitive price on organic pine nuts, even with the higher price tag.
Each 1.5-lb bag of Organic Pine nNuts at Costco is currently available for $34.99, making these pine nuts a whopping $23.33 per pound.
But before you bat your eye at this price, keep in mind that the average market price for organic pine nuts in 2023 is around $40 per pound, making this Kirkland Signature option a great deal.
Compare this to the price available through BJ’s Wholesale Club, where they charge almost $30 per pound for their Wellsley Farms Organic Pine Nuts.
Keep in mind that if you buy your Kirkland Signature Pine Nuts on Costco.com, you will pay a few dollars more ($40.99 per bag).
These pine nuts are raw, not roasted, and they do not contain any salt or any other added ingredients.
A key ingredient in traditional pesto and Italian pasta recipes, pine nuts are rich in fiber, iron, and potassium, making them a nutritious and delicious tree nut. Just be careful around folks with tree nut allergies, as pine nuts can cause severe allergic reactions in some people.
Costco’s Kirkland Signature Organic Pine Nuts are a product of China.
