The Kirkland Signature Nut Bars at Costco, available in a 30 count box, are pretty tasty and I go through a box much faster than I should. The bars contain large pieces of almonds, cashews and pecans that are held together with salted chocolate.

Kirkland Signature Nut Bars Taste Test!
The bars are absolutely loaded with almonds, pecans and cashews so you are sure to get your fix if you are a nut lover. The chocolate is flavorful, but not too sweet, with just the right amount of saltiness.
The texture of the bar is crunchy with just a little bit of chewiness. These bars are a stark contrast to the “mushiness” of Costco’s protein bars.
The Kirkland Signature nut bars appear to be formulated to compete Head to Head with the Kind brand of almond nut bars. Personally I think the Kirkland product is much better than the Kind brand. While both brands have plenty of almonds, Kirkland bars have cashews and pecans instead of the peanuts in Kind.
