Bartons Holiday Mingle Mix at Costco
Barton’s Holiday Mingle Mix is back at Costco! Costco sells the 24-ounce bag of holiday season treats for $9.49. I found the Holiday Mingle Mix at my warehouse in the seasonal section across from the frozen food aisles.
This may vary from warehouse to warehouse, so check near the frozen food aisles or in the snack sections.
What’s Included in the Holiday Mingle Mix?
Each bag will have 24 ounces (1.5 Pounds) of holiday goodness. The Mingle mix is made with the following:
- Dark Chocolate Pretzels with Sprinkles & White Drizzle
- Milk & Dark Chocolate Caramel Corn with Almonds
- Milk & Dark Chocolate Mini Peanut Butter Cups
- Milk Chocolate Pretzel Balls
- Milk Chocolate Nonpareils (Sprinkles)
- Chocolate Sandwich Cookie Pieces
- Red Gems
This mix sounds darn good to me, and I would bet these would go very quickly at a Christmas party.
Thing to Note: There are milk and dark chocolate varieties of the peanut butter cups and the caramel flavored popcorn.
Costco Cost Comparison
How Much is Barton's Mingle Mix at Costco?
Costco sells Barton’s Holiday Mingle Mix for $9.49. This breaks down to a per-pound price of $6.32 or $0.40 per ounce.
This will definitely be on the higher end for a candy treat mix, but it is reasonable considering the theme and the uniqueness of some of the included items.
Costco vs. The Competition
If you are looking for Barton’s Holiday Mingle Mix, Costco will be the place to get it. After some vigorous searching online, it appears this will be a Costco exclusive item. I found a few other sources reselling the Holiday Mingle Mix, but no other reputable sellers selling the treat at retail price.
For reference, other mixes such as Hoody’s Peanut Butter mix sells for $0.20 an ounce.
Holiday Mingle Mix - Taste Test
I’ve only heard good things about Barton’s Holiday Mingle Mix, so I was super excited to try these.
I poured a small bowl full, and I must admit that I had difficulty stopping. Just a forewarning, these can be addictive.
All the pieces of the Holiday Mix were pretty good. My favorite pieces were both the milk and dark chocolate peanut butter cups, but that is also my absolute favorite piece of candy. So I do have some bias there.
The least exciting piece to me was the chocolate sandwich cookie, aka the oreo knockoff. Both the flavor and texture were off, and a bit of a letdown.
The chocolate sandwich cookie didn’t contribute much, and I wouldn’t miss them if they weren’t included next year.
I did notice that my holiday mix didn’t have too many of the “Red Gem” pieces. If I had to estimate, I would say I had less than 10 or so pieces in the entire bag. A little disappointed with the distribution numbers.
Overall, it’s a solid holiday treat. The theme is on point, and these will go quickly at any party or gathering.
Costco Holiday Mingle Mix Calories and Nutrition
