The Tiramisu Cups by Dessert Italiano is available at Costco and you can buy them in a pack of 6 servings for around 10$. Since each serving is layered in a separate glass cup, you don’t have to consume all at once. You can easily refrigerate the rest for about 3 weeks. So, let’s take a closer look at this creamy dessert.
The Different Layers
At first glance you can already see, that this dessert has many layers. On top of the Tiramisu Cups there is a thick covering of dusted cocoa powder, which makes it really fancy looking. Then, there are layers of sponge cake and mascarpone cream. The sponge cake is surrounded and soaked with coffee and at the very bottom of the glass there is another layer of coffee jelly.
How Do Costco Tiramisu Cups Taste?
Let’s start with the top part of these fancy-looking dessert cups. If you compare it to the rest of the Tiramisu, then this part seems not too heavy. The mascarpone cream itself is not really strong tasting, so combined with the thick layer of dusted cocoa powder, the chocolate taste is really overruling. There is no doubt, that these dessert cups generally have a lot of chocolate taste going on. However, when you dig deeper you will get to the coffee-soaked sponge cake part. This section has a really moist consistency and brings a nice coffee flavor with it. Another ingredient in this Tiramisu Cups is Marsala wine, so you will also recognize a slight taste of alcohol from it. The whole Costco Tiramisu Cups combined, taste like a coffee-flavored sponge cake with cocoa cream. This dessert is not too sweet and will melt in your mouth.
You Can Reuse The Glasses
The Tiramisu Cups are packed in a plastic package, but the dessert itself comes in glass cups. So, even if you wouldn’t be the biggest fan of the Tiramisu itself, you got the glasses out of it. There are many different ways to use them again and again. First of all, there is always use in them, to put some cream or parfait inside and it will automatically be a fancy dessert. Also, you can use the glasses for breakfast orange juice, kids’ drinks, or espresso, because they do have the perfect size for that matter. As you also might have recognized, the glasses really look cute, so you can also use them as decoration and get a little creative.
One 85g glass of the Costco Tiramisu Cups has 250kcal. For the perfect serving size that’s not too much, if you compare it to other high-calorie desserts. There is 12g of fat, 30g of carbohydrates, 18g of sugar, 4g of protein, and 60mg of sodium in it.
Because there is 1,5% of alcohol and coffee in this dessert, it’s not a recommended option to share with kids. Also, if you are allergic to gluten or dairy, then you shouldn’t eat these Tiramisu Cups because it’s loaded with them.
All in all, I would say, that the Costco Tiramisu Cups are definitely worth a try. They are rich, creamy, slightly sweet, and very convenient desserts to have. You can serve them at a dinner party or if you have guests over. They look really fancy for this occasion and your guests will be impressed. Otherwise, just enjoy them yourself as a nice treat and reuse the cute glasses after.
