Costco has switched bread crumb brands, shame on you Costco

I wrote early this year about a great panko breadcrumb find at Costco. Indeed, the giant box lasted me from February through August. But I was very disappointed when I went back to Costco recently only to find it had switched to a different brand of panko breadcrumbs — one that’s incredibly high in salt. Shame on you Costco!

Costco has dropped a low-sodium brand of panko and now carries this from McCormick, an offering loaded with salt. Shame on you Costco.

The warehouse store now carries McCormick brand Tuscan Herb panko bread crumbs. Anything that has a name like that is likely loaded with salt. A quick check of the nutrition panel confirmed my worst fears. A half-cup of this brand has 560 mgs of sodium, or a third of my daily limit. That’s simply unacceptable.

The Kikkoman brand it carried before had 40 mgs of sodium in a half cup, so McCormick has more than 10 times as much!

Looks like I’m back to paying a lot for smaller packages of panko breadcrumbs that are low-sodium.

  1. Thank you for the update, I couldn’t find the Kikkoman brand in Costco today and thought I was going blind. Amazon sells the 2LB. box, pricier than Costco, but still better than grocery store prices.
