Costco Connie’s Kitchen Feta and Spinach Chicken Sausages: A Flavorful Twist on Classic Sausages

If you’re a fan of sausage but prefer the lighter taste of chicken over beef or pork, then Costco Connie’s Kitchen Feta and Spinach Chicken Sausages might just be your new favorite. Offering a unique combination of feta cheese and spinach, these chicken sausages bring a burst of flavor to your palate. Are you curious to know if this combination works? Let’s find out together!

A Healthier Choice in Sausages

For those who lean towards chicken or turkey sausages over the traditional beef and pork varieties, Costco Connie’s Spinach and Feta Chicken Sausages are definitely worth considering. While they have been a staple at Costco for quite some time, they recently caught my attention as an item to review.

A Wide Variety of Sausages at Costco

Costco boasts a wide array of sausages, ranging from the Maple Leaf Wild Garlic & Thyme Chicken Sausages to the Kirkland Signature All Beef Wieners. However, for today’s review, we’ll focus on the Connie’s Kitchen Feta and Spinach Chicken Sausages.

Where to Find Them

These sausages can be found in the refrigerated deli section of your local Costco, near the cold cuts and cheese. Just look for item number 425417.

A Flavorful Experience

While I had high hopes for these sausages, I must admit that they didn’t quite meet my expectations. The saltiness was a bit overpowering, and while I could detect some cheese flavor, I couldn’t specifically identify it as feta. Similarly, although there were visible specks of spinach, I couldn’t taste it at all. On the positive side, the texture of the sausages and casing was excellent. The casing was not overly thick or tough, making it a pleasure to bite into. As for the taste of the chicken itself, it was somewhat overshadowed by the saltiness. It’s worth noting that if you enjoy heavily seasoned meats, these sausages might be right up your alley.

A Slightly Pricey Option

A pack of 12 Connie’s Kitchen Feta Spinach Chicken Sausages will set you back $15.99 Canadian at Costco. While the quality is undeniable, the price may be a bit higher than expected for sausages.

Convenience and Versatility

In terms of convenience, I was surprised to find that the best-before date on my package was seven months from the date of purchase. Personally, I prefer consuming sausages within a shorter timeframe. These sausages come in three packs of four and can be cooked on the stovetop, in the microwave, or on the barbecue. While they don’t have specific instructions for air frying, I believe they would work well in that cooking method too. They make a great addition to breakfast or pair nicely with rice, salad, or potatoes.

Nutritional Considerations

Each sausage contains 160 calories, 10 grams of fat, two grams of carbohydrates, zero grams of fiber and sugar, 16 grams of protein, and 670 milligrams of sodium. The sodium content is relatively high, especially considering these are chicken sausages. The additional fat, sodium, and calories are likely due to the feta cheese.

Ingredients and Scoring

The ingredients list is relatively straightforward, and it’s worth mentioning that the casing is clearly identified. The taste of these sausages scored a 6/10, the cost a 4/10, convenience a 9/10, and the nutrition a 4/10.

Give Them a Try!

While I found these sausages to be excessively salty, many people seem to enjoy them. In fact, when I shared some with my parents, they quite liked them. Ultimately, the only way to know if they’re a hit with your taste buds is to try them for yourself.
