Costco Sriracha Hot Chili Almonds Review


There are a lot of sweet and salty snacks but not very many spicy ones. These Costco Sriracha Hot Chili Almonds promise to deliver a spicy snack by combining the popular flavor of Sriracha hot sauce with almonds!

These make a great snack for someone who likes hot sauce and also enjoys snacking on nuts!


The almonds are generously seasoned. You can see it as soon as you open the bag. This makes them a little bit messy to eat as you get seasoning all over your hands.

The heat snuck up on me! I took a few almonds and started eating them and was a bit surprised at how mild they were at first. A few seconds later I realized it just took them a little while to kick in! These almonds definitely deliver the heat of sriracha. I like the heat, but it’s enough that it will turn off people who are sensitive to spicy foods.

As far as the flavors go, I would describe the almonds as spicy, generously-salted almonds. You get a short note of sriracha flavor when the seasoning first touches your tongue, but after that, you mainly taste salted almonds with plenty of heat.

Top positive reviews:

“So many nut products claim to have a strong flavor or spicy flavor but really don’t. These are delicious, have a great (strong) flavor, and are actually pleasantly spicy! Not overly spicy, kinda in that medium range but I love them so much!”

“I have not tried these, but they were a gift for my daughter who absolutely loves them. They were a little pricey I thought but she was very excited to have them and loves the taste of them. They were bigger size bags than I thought they were going to be too. They are good deal!”

“Ok, so I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, yet I’m saying “awesome.” Here’s why: If you love Sriracha, don’t expect these to taste like almonds covered in Sriracha. That’s the only reason it gets a 4. Aside from that, these are awesome! Spicier than I expected and more salty than what Sriracha normally tastes like, which works really well for almonds. Grab a pack. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.”

Top critical reviews:

“The almonds seemed stale and there wasn’t much flavor. Definitely pass on these if your looking for classic sriracha flavor. But on a good note you get a lot of almonds, I just didn’t really like eating them. Very disappointed.”

“Not what it says it is! Not even close to what it is supposed to be! No flavor! Basically just a bunch of roasted nuts!”

“I have purchased these nuts on multiple occasions, without any problems. This order was not like any other order, as you can see. The skin is off of most of the pieces and the nuts taste stale. I am very disappointed in the quality of this order.”


Overall the Sriracha Almonds are a tasty and unique snack. I suspect fans of spicy foods and nuts will go crazy for them. People who don’t like spicy foods will probably hate them. I enjoyed them quite a bit.
