Definitely has a bit of heat!
To see more of my Costco food reviews follow me on Instagram or Facebook and also check out my blog Costcuisine where I review tons of Costco food products each week! Last week I posted a review for the Costco WestEnd Cuisine Mediterranean Chicken Skewers, Costco Crepini Egg Thins Egg Crepes and Costco Kirkland Signature Chocolate Covered Almonds.
So I’ve always been slightly curious about the Costco Culinary Treasures Roasted Garlic & Chili Aioli. I’m a huge sweet potato fry fan and I love the dipping sauce you get at restaurants. At home sweet potato fries just aren’t the same with ketchup so I was excited to try this out!
The aioli comes in a two-pack and each bottle is 750 ml. I paid $7.99 Canadian for the two-pack. Not overly expensive at all for such a large quantity of aioli that I’ll probably never use up!
So when I bought this initially I was pretty close minded and thought it would only work for sweet potato fries. However after trying it I’ve decided there’s quite a few ways you could use this aioli. On sandwiches, burgers, for dipping fries or chicken wings or even as a veggie dip! I bet there’s a ton more ways you can use it that I’m not even thinking about. The best before date is about six months from the date I purchased the aioli. Once opening you need to refrigerate the aioli.
One tablespoon is 100 calories, 11 grams of fat, 85 mg of sodium, 0 grams of fibre, sugar and protein and one gram of carbohydrates. The ingredients list is pretty much what I would expect to see until I got to the end of the ingredients list. I’m not quite sure what calcium disodium edta is?
Honest review. My husband and I are divided on the taste. I was NOT expecting it to be so spicy/hot! For some reason I decided to forget about the “chili” part and found the heat a little too much and overpowering. My husband on the other hand loves the heat and thinks this aioli is delicious. I wish it was slightly less spicy so the garlic flavor came through a bit more but it does taste pretty much like a spicy garlic sauce. I must admit I’m a bit of a wimp when it comes to spice but if you’re like me you also might find this a little much. If you’re a heat fan and appreciate garlic I bet you’ll really enjoy this aioli.
I have enough Culinary Treasures Roasted Garlic & Chili Aioli from Costco to last me quite a while so I probably won’t be repurchasing it anytime soon! My husband really enjoyed it with the McCain Sweet Potato Fries from Costco but I found it a little bit too spicy.
Are you an aioli fan? Any other ideas on how to use this?
