I was in a very long checkout line at Costco yesterday and was standing beside a lovely lady who was handing out samples of Coconut Keto Clusters from InnoFoods. She was kind enough to hand me a little paper wrapper with some clusters and they made for a tasty snack!

Coconut Keto Clusters Nutrition, Calories and Carbohydrates
A single serving of these clusters (1 ounce) has the following nutritional information:
- Calories: 160
- Fat: 14g (18% DV)
- Cholesterol: 0mg
- Sodium: 110mg (3% DV)
- Protein: 3g
- Carbohydrates: 8g (3% DV)
- Dietary Fiber: 3g
- Added Sugar: 3g
- Sugar Alcohol: 1g
- Total Net Carbs: 4g
There is debate as to whether these snacks are keto compliant or not. I am not the keto police so you will have to make your own decision.
On one hand, when you subtract out the undigestible carbohydrates (fiber and sugar alcohol) the snacks only contain 4 net grams of carbs which is extremely keto friendly.
On the other hand, these clusters contain 3 grams of added sugar which comes from the use of cane sugar as one of the ingredients. The inclusion of cane sugar is not consistent with a keto diet.
How do the Coconut Keto Clusters Taste?
The clusters have the following ingredients:
- Pumpkin Seeds
- Cane Sugar
- Brown Rice Syrup
- Coconut Butter
- Flax Seeds
- Agave Fiber
The snacks have a great crunch. You immediately get a strong coconut taste that is extremely sweet followed by an earthiness from the pumpkin seeds, pecans and almonds.
Overall the snack is crunchy and extremely sweet with a little bit of salty, savory balance.

Customer Reviews of Coconut Keto Clusters
These clusters are being sold on Amazon so I went ahead and grabbed a screenshot of the customer reviews to see what other people thought about this snack.
There are over 2,700 reviews for these clusters which tells me that they are pretty popular!
Overall people seems to love these snacks as, when you combine the 5 and 4 star reviews, they have a 93% customer satisfaction rating.
The negative reviews came in two buckets:
- The product contains cane sugar so it is not keto.
- The product arrived stale.
As long as you are buying these at Costco you shouldn’t have to worry about freshness and the whole debate about are they truly keto or not is up to you to decide.
You can buy a 16 ounce bag of these snacks for $10.99 at Costco which works out to a cost of $0.687 per ounce.
You can buy the same product at Walmart for $18.97 which works out to a cost of $$1.18 per ounce.
This means you will save $$0.50 per ounce (42%) when you buy the clusters at Costco.
