Costco Mango Salsa Price
We paid $8.99 for 3 pounds of Santa Barbara Mango Peach Salsa; this breaks down to $2.99 per pound.
Our local grocer doesn’t carry Santa Barbara Mango Peach Salsa, but a comparable product made by Desert Pepper costs $6.19 per pound. That’s more than double the price!
While Costco Mango Peach Salsa may be cheaper than the grocery store variety, it’s not a deal if you don’t use it before it goes bad. Proper storage is also essential.
This price is current as of June 2023. The price tag was updated on May 24.

Costco Mango Salsa Review
I’ve made this salsa a few times before, and it was always tricky to find ripe mangoes, so I was excited to see this in the warehouse. It was ok but fell a bit flat.
It’s pretty watery, making it ok to serve as a dip with tortilla chips, but it doesn’t lend itself particularly well for other uses. It’s a minor gripe as it is easy to remove the excess liquid.
As for the flavor, it’s a bit muted. The mango and peach flavors add freshness but feel out of place in some bites.
You get a hint of heat every few bites but nothing too spicy. If you like fresh flavors, this is not the product for you.
We will use up this container but wouldn’t repurchase it.
How Long Does Mango Salsa Last In The Fridge
According to the USDA, Santa Barbara Mango with Peach Salsa has a Sell By Date on the container, but that’s not a safety date. Instead, it is for the stores to know how long to display. Some food is still safe to eat after the sell-by date.
The manufacturer recommends using Costco Mango Salsaw within three weeks of opening.
As always, lead with your senses. If a product doesn’t taste or look right before three weeks is up, it’s best to toss it.
How To Use Costco Mango Salsa
- Our favorite way to use Costco Mango Peach Salsa is as a dip with tortilla chips. The salty chip is a great contrast to the sweet fruit.
- Make a spice blend of equal parts cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, and ½ part Italian seasoning and sprinkle on chicken thighs. Grill for a few minutes per side and top cooked chicken with salsa.
- Drain the salsa and top cooked shrimp or fish. Serve with rice.
- Serve as an accompaniment to your favorite tacos. It would be great with these Baja Fish Tacos from Once Upon A Chef.
- Mix with Sour Cream to make a salad dressing perfect for your favorite Mexican-inspired salad.
- Serve with cajun-seasoned chicken or fish
- Mix with ground beef or turkey and rice for a simple burrito.
