What’s In Costco’s Asian Wraps?
Costco’s Asian Chicken Wraps are made with its famous rotisserie chicken mixed with Asian coleslaw, all wrapped in a jumbo spinach tortilla. The coleslaw comprises of green cabbage, red cabbage, carrots, and broccoli.
The Asian wraps will also include some sliced almonds and some egg noodles. Each pack will also have a small cup of Asian sesame dressing.
Asian Wraps - Heavier than Expected
One thing that really surprised me about these Asian Chicken Wraps from Costco was just how heavy they were.
I guess I expected something light due to the veggies, but these wraps are packed full of ingredients.
I busted out my kitchen scale, and each wrap weighed just a touch above 8 ounces. That means each full wrap weighs over 1 pound! There is a lot of food here.
Costco Cost Comparison
How Much Do The Costco Asian Chicken Wraps Cost?
The Costco Asian Chicken Wraps sell for $6.49 a pound or about $14-$15 per package. Each of the 4 half wraps breaks down to $3.60 each or about $7.20 for the full chicken wrap.
The $6.49 a pound price tag seems a little pricey to me, but considering that each wrap weighs 1 whole pound, it isn’t overly expensive.
I would be hard-pressed to find a wrap of this size for this price anywhere else outside of Costco.
Asian Chicken Wrap Taste Test
I’m not one that usually goes for healthier veggie heavy meals like these Asian wraps, but these were quite nice. The Asian chicken wrap was filling and didn’t leave me with the post lunch slump. Can’t complain about that.
I did appreciate the spinach tortilla over a regular flour tortilla. The wrap was a little thick and doughy at points, but it does bring a healthy veggie feel that was perfect for this style of Asian Wrap.
I can also imagine the green tortilla draws a lot of eyeballs and helps the wraps stick out compared to some of Costco’s other prepared meals.
Asian Chicken Wrap Filling
I thought the Asian chicken wrap filling was good but not great. Every bite had fresh and crunchy vegetables, and there was no shortage of crunch throughout the wrap.
The almonds added a nice earthy touch, and the dry egg noodles provided some unique texture.
The white meat rotisserie chicken was solid. It was somewhat dry at times, but the sesame dressing helped with that.
I would have liked some of the rotisserie chicken pieces to have been cut a little smaller, but overall no major complaints about the chicken.
I found the Asian sesame dressing to be the highlight of the meal. The Asian chicken wrap was a little dry, and the dressing really helped liven everything up.
The dressing has a very, very strong sesame flavor but went well with the ingredients of the wrap.
My one complaint with the dressing was that the texture felt a little off and seemed to be of lower quality.
Pro Tip: Eat ASAP. The wrap and the ingredients become soggy 1 day after they are packed and mushy 2 days after the packed date.
Overall, I would have liked a little more flavor. I thought the wrap was on the bland side and the sesame dressing was a must-add, but my wife, on the other hand, found it flavorful enough without the dressing.
Costco Asian Chicken Wrap Calories and Nutrition Facts
Costco Makes It Difficult To Get Nutritional Information
My biggest pet peeve with Costco’s prepared meals is their lack of accessible nutritional information. Often, you don’t really want to know how many calories you are taking in when you consume some of their meals, but sometimes like with these healthier Asian Wraps, you may want to find out that information.
Most online sources will just guesstimate how many calories these foods may have, so they aren’t always 100% accurate, and sometimes they are way off.
How Many Calories in Costco Asian Chicken Wraps?
Luckily, I have made some friends at my local Costco, and here is the nutritional information I got from them. Each half Asian wrap with dressing will have 510 calories, 23 grams of fat, 52 grams of carbs, and 24 grams of protein.
This seems pretty reasonable to me, and many sites that estimate the calorie count actually come close. Most sources online say that these Costco Asian Chicken wraps will have about 480 calories, coming from 25 grams of fat, 44 grams of carbs, and 22 grams of protein.
It is unfortunate that Costco doesn’t post this information, as it can be beneficial to many of their members.
Are The Costco Asian Chicken Wraps Healthy?
Yes, I would say that Costco’s Asian chicken wrap is healthy. The wrap is made of a spinach tortilla with white meat rotisserie chicken and vegetables. The calories are reasonable, considering the size of the wrap. This is a very healthy and filling meal.
Costco Asian Chicken Wrap Review
Product Name: Kirkland Signature Asian Chicken Wrap With Dressing
Quantity: 2.2 Pounds
Location Within Costco: Refrigerated Deli Area
Price Per Pound: $6.49
Costco’s Asian Chicken Wrap is an all-around mediocre item. The price is fair, considering how much food there is, and it’s relatively healthy, but I wasn’t really wowed by the flavor.
I also would have liked a little more Asian flare to differentiate it from any other wrap. Not a bad buy, but it might be a while before I have this again for lunch.
