I had been waiting for the Costco Acai Bowls to be back in stock at my local store. On my last Costco run I finally found them and couldn’t wait to try them out!
Since I had never purchased these before, I honestly had no idea what to expect. I wanted to try them for myself because I had seen them online and they looked so good. I also wanted to take some photos and share my thoughts.
I love having something sweet after dinner, but I am always on the lookout for good treats that are also not too bad for me. Since these didn’t have too many calories and they included frozen berries I thought they would be worth a try.
After seeing how good these looked online, I had been checking my local Costco for the last few months but they didn’t have them in stock. Finally in March, they had begun stocking them again.

Inside the Box
When you open the box you will see the 6 packs of granola mix.
Under the granola mix are the 6 individual frozen Acai Bowls.
Each of the Acai bowls comes in a small plastic bowl. The bowls are 6.25 oz and include Acai, blueberries, and chopped strawberries.
The granola pack includes a granola mix and coconut flakes.
The frozen acai bowls are not meant to be eaten frozen, so they must be thawed first. On the box there are instructions for thawing the bowls at room temperature and also in the microwave.
To thaw at room temperature, you just set the granola pack aside, remove the plastic film, and let sit for about 40-45 minutes.
For thawing using the microwave method, you set the granola pack aside, remove the film, and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir, and heat for an additional 10 seconds.
After the Acai Bowls are completely thawed then you just add the granola toppings and enjoy! I used both of these methods at different times that I have eaten these bowls, and they both work great.
If I have the time, I just let it sit out to thaw. A few times I wanted these as a late night snack, so it was easier just to use the microwave method so that I didn’t have to wait around.
I honestly had no idea what to expect when trying these frozen Acai Bowls. Now that I have tried them, I absolutely love them, and will definitely be buying more!
These are my new favorite frozen treat from Costco. They are not too sweet, and the granola gives them the perfect amount of crunch.
Another thing that I love about these frozen Acai Bowls is that the strawberries are cut up into smaller pieces. I prefer the smaller slices instead of larger strawberries.
I was also very impressed with the amount of fruit that is included in each bowl. As I ate the entire bowl it seemed as if I was alway getting a few blueberries and strawberries in each bite.
Personally I love the texture and crunch that the granola topping gives the bowl. I think that it really adds to the taste. My daughter tried these bowls, and while she really loves them, she doesn’t like coconut. She still eats them, she just doesn’t add the toppings.
If there was one thing that I would change about these bowls would be to have the coconut and the granola separated in each topping pack so that people like here, can still enjoy the granola part of the topping.
I will still be purchasing, I will just buy a separate granola topping for here to use on here bowls.
Another thing that I love about these frozen Acai Bowls is that they are completely organic and plant based. Since they are pre-package, each serving size is just one bowl and one pack of toppings. They also don’t have too many calories.
Each bowl without topping is 100 calories and if you add the topping, each bowl becomes 180 calories. This is great because the bowls were actually really filling.
About The Tattoo Chef Company
These Acai bowls are made by The Tattooed Chef. I check out their website to learn more about them. They make great tasting plant based foods to help people feel good.
It also says that they keep creating and recreating their dishes to make sure that they have just the right ingredients, taste, and textures.
I have to say that they did a great job with their Acai Bowls! Their Acai Bowls even have an average 5 star rating on a few different websites.
Many people even commented that they had tried other frozen acai bowls, and none were nearly as good as the Tattooed Chef brand.
I also discovered that they have other frozen foods and bowls that they sell such as enchilada bowls, smoothie bowls, and cauliflower pizza bowls. I will definitely need to try them all out!
I did some research on the price of these same Acai Bowls at other stores versus Costco, and I discovered that the ones at are a really great deal. The box at Costco is priced at 11.89 and includes 6 bowls. This makes the cost of each bowl about $1.98 each.
Other stores were selling these bowls for an average of $4.99 – $8.00 for just one bowl! If you can buy these from Costco, I would definitely suggest that you do.
The Tattooed Chef Acai Bowls are my new favorite find! I am just sad they don’t always have them in stock. I love that they are good for me, are filling, and taste amazing. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
Now I just need to get a bigger freezer so that I can stock up on them next time they are in stock at Costco.
