The Kinder’s Organic Teriyaki Sauce and Marinade at Costco is Just Okay

We bought the 30 ounce bottle of Kinder’s Teriyaki Sauce at Costco.  The sauce, which can also be used as a marinade, is organic and features ginger, garlic and sesame seeds.

Our quick review is: The teriyaki sauce is okay but nothing special.  We used most of the bottle but won’t be buying it again.

Taste Test!

This sauce is pretty good but not amazing.

The teriyaki sauce is about 2-3 times thicker than any other teriyaki sauce that I have ever bought.  The thickness of the sauce is not a bad thing, just unexpected.

We tried this sauce with the mini egg rolls that we got at Costco and the sauce was perfect for dipping.

The first flavor I get from the sauce is “salty” which is quickly followed up with “sweet”.  Right after the “sweet” kicks in the ginger, garlic and sesame flavors kick in.

All told, I like the flavor of the sauce but it is a bit too salty and I wish it didn’t have so much sugar.

The bottle says that this sauce can also be used as a marinade but I am not going down that route.  This sauce has a ton of sugar and I would expect anything that gets marinated with it to scorch on a grill.

Costco Value

I bought a 30 ounce bottle of this sauce at Costco for $4.99 which works out to a cost of $0.166 per ounce.  You can buy a 14 ounce bottle of the same sauce at Target for $5.99 which works out to a cost of $0.427 per ounce.

This means that you will save $0.26 per ounce (over 60%) when you purchase the sauce at Costco.
