Primal Kitchen No Dairy Buffalo Sauce is a Costco Value

I am an absolute sucker for chicken wings so when I saw the Primal Kitchen No Dairy Buffalo Sauce (available at Whole Foods, Target, etc) for sale I knew it had to end up in my shopping cart.  Sometimes you can find this sauce at Costco and save a ton of money.

The Buffalo sauce replaces the butter normally found in this style of sauce with cashew butter.  Since I am also a huge fan of cashews I was extra excited to give this sauce a try!

How Does Primal Kitchen No Dairy Buffalo Sauce Taste?

This sauce was great but I had a bit of a failure!

My grocery store has been out of chicken wings for a week and I ended up testing this sauce on some breaded chicken breast bites.  What is the world coming to when you can’t find any chicken wings???

This Buffalo sauce was absolutely delicious.  The sauce has:

  • Perfect consistency to stick to the chicken.
  • Beautiful color.
  • Wonderful flavor with plenty of heat.

The sauce is just as good, or better, than all of the other commercial Buffalo sauces I have tried over the years.

The creamy cashew butter does an excellent job of replacing the traditional butter flavor and, if you didn’t already know this was a dairy free sauce, you probably wouldn’t even guess that the regular butter was missing.

If you are looking for a wonderful Vegan Buffalo sauce for some cauliflower bites then this is the sauce for you.

Even if you are not looking for a Vegan sauce, this Buffalo sauce is extremely tasty and will go great on your wings.

Customer Reviews from Amazon

I wanted to see what other people thought about this sauce so I checked out the customer reviews on Amazon.  There were 100 reviews for this salsa 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 love this sauce with 94% of customers leaving either a 5 of 4 Star review.  Only 2% of reviewers were unhappy enough to leave a 1 or 2 Star review.

Amazon Reviews of Primal Kitchen Buffalo Sauce

One of the negative reviews made the observation that the sauce being sold on Amazon is the new formulation with cashew butter and not the old formulation made with avocado oil even though the avocado based product is what Amazon advertises.

I checked the label on the “old version” and it also contains cashew butter along with avocado oil just like this version.  I suspect the only real difference is that Primal Kitchen changed the text on the label.

Primal Kitchen Buffalo Sauce is a Costco Value

This product is sometimes carried by Costco and comes in a two pack of 16.5 ounce bottles.  Costco sells this sauce for $9.99 which works out to a cost of $0.30 per ounce.

I bought the 8.5 ounce bottle of this sauce at Albertsons for $5.49 which works out to a cost of $0.645 per ounce.

This means that you can save $0.345 (53%) when you buy the two pack of larger bottles at Costco.
