Kinder’s teriyaki sauce is a thick sauce that is great for dipping. I really enjoyed the ginger, garlic and sesame notes but wish it was just a little less salty.
This sauce is a tremendous Costco value.

How Does Kinder’s Teriyaki Sauce Taste?
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.
Reviews From Amazon Customers
I wanted to see what other people thought about this sauce so I checked out the customer reviews on Amazon. There were 213 reviews for this sauce on Amazon as of November, 2021 which is enough information to draw some general conclusions.
The takeaway from this data set is that, in general, people really like this sauce with 91% of customers leaving either a 5 of 4 Star review. Only 5% percent of reviewers were unhappy enough to leave a 1 or 2 Star review and those comments were more about Amazon customer service than the sauce itself.
Some of the Positive comments left by Amazon customers include:
- I don’t know why this tastes so good! We’ve used this teri sauce as marinade for chuck steaks and chicken. Tasted great grilled or pan fried.
- This teriyaki sauce is great as a marinade for chicken, steaks, burgers, and as an addition to a crockpot roast with vegetables (carrots and potatoes). It is also a great addition when sautéing fresh mushrooms.
- Hands down the best teriyaki sauce I’ve ever had. Love this stuff so much. The flavor is amazing.
I will admit that after reading these customer reviews that I am tempted to use the sauce as a marinade.
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.
