Hard seltzer are growing in popularity this year. So much so that brands like Coca-Cola step on the scene to produce their own version of the coveted alcoholic beverage. And if you’ve been to Costco lately, you may have noticed that the retailer didn’t miss the memo – they now have their own homemade version. (Check out 8 foods that may be running low soon.)
Mashed says buyers at Costco have discovered Kirkland-branded hard selters that look very similar to White Claw’s version. Not only does Costco’s hard seltzer have a similar package to White Claw, but they also have a range of four similar flavors: mango, grapefruit, cherry, and lime.
The best part? A pack of 24 of 12 ounces. Cans retail for $ 17.99; That’s a lot compared to a 12-pack of White Claw that sells at Walmart for $ 14.99.
In terms of nutrition, hard selters are comparable to light beer in terms of both calories and the amount of alcohol (around 5%). Their advantages are that, unlike most beers, they are gluten-free. A can of Kirklands Hard Seltzer will bring you back 100 calories.
But how does the fraudster match the taste of the original? Some redditors are really impressed. “It’s delicious and the flavors are the strongest I’ve had from a tough seltzer. Little to no aftertaste and you can’t beat the price,” said one. A Youtuber quoted by Mashed noted that the lime flavor actually tastes quite similar to that of White Claw and that lime and grapefruit were its two main flavors.
In 2018, Costco decided to stop selling its Kirkland-branded light beer after the product received poor reviews from both consumers and the industry. However, they still have their successful line of homemade liquors like vodka and tequila.
