That Kirkland Signature’s house blend roasted coffee sitting in your pantry right now? That’s actually Starbucks! Or at least, certain blends are made by Starbucks, specifically, the bags bearing the “Custom roasted by Starbucks” stamp.” Okay, so that one might be more obvious, but there are a lot of other Kirkland Signature products that are secretly manufactured by giant, well-known retailers.
According to MoneyWise, the Kirkland Signature batteries are actually manufactured by Duracell, the tuna is Bumblebee, and the diapers are made by Kimberly-Clark, the company behind Huggies diapers. Feeling deja vu when you use Kirkland Signature brand aluminum foil? That’s because it’s manufactured by Reynolds! So on your next trip to Costco, see if you can figure out which Kirkland products are national brands in disguise (and at that famous Kirkland Signature price point.) Low prices without substitution for brand-name quality? Yes, please.
