Costco Kimchi, Jongga Sliced Napa Cabbage Kimchi


Yes, Costco sells kimchi! I don’t usually buy kimchi, but when I do, I only get it at Costco. As you can see it’s on sale & is probably the cheapest you will find it. Scroll down for photos & you’ll see it’s on sale for $4.99. My favorite way to eat it is to throw it over a bed of rice with some BBQ’d chicken on top. It’s the perfect meal for me……..easy, cheap, tasty & from Costco! You can find this in the refrigerated section of Costco. My local Costco has a section with predominantly Asian foods & it can be found there. I usually see it year around, so it’s not something that is seasonal. If you’ve never tried it, I highly recommend you give it a shot for only $4.99. Here are a few more details about this Costco kimchi…………

  • Gluten Free, Keto Friendly, No MSG, Probiotic
  • Brand: Jongga (although the tag says Chongga, see photos)
  • 42.3 ounce of kimchi, that’s over 2.5 pounds of kimchi
  • Number 1 kimchi brand in Korea
  • Made in Korea
  • Contains Fish (anchovy) & shrimp for those with allergies
  • Made from sliced Napa Cabbage

Costco Kimchi


If you’ve read my other posts, you know I always enjoy cheap & healthy meals. If you google kimchi health benefits you will find numerous claims including: lower cholesterol, healthy bacteria & probiotics, healthy skin & hair, weight loss, etc. I am also a big fan of the ingredients. You can pronounce almost every single one of them. I like knowing what I am eating. For those of you who like their homemade kimchi or are well versed with different brands of kimchi, I would like to know what you think of this brand. I’ve looked into making myself some homemade kimchi with plenty of online recipes, but for $4.99 I just can’t justify the time & effort to make something I thoroughly enjoy right out of the bottle. Now if you’re looking to have something delivered right to your door, check out these kimchi brands on Amazon……..

Price: $4.99 (on sale), $6.49 (regular), Item Number: 737160

  1. I have been looking for great kimchi for a while. Nothing in my local store, nothing on Amazon, and viola! Finally, my Costco store has Chongga Kimchi Mat Kimchi, 42.3 oz for $7 !! I was so excited it was immediately put on my grocery list.

    I hope Costco continues to carry this product. I found it absolutely delicious and I put some in as many dishes as I can. Pasta, rice dishes especially, and makes a great addition to soups. Also, just a great side dish all by itself.

    1. Awesome! Glad to hear Migo. I love it when Costco finally carries something you’ve been looking for, because it’s always a GREAT price too! Glad you enjoy it

    2. I would really like to buy it! My local Costco doesn’t carry it. Store people say, never did! Lexington Kentucky has multiple Korean restaurants and the shouldn’t be the only place to get it

      1. Sorry to hear Greg! It really is good stuff right out of the jar. I’m sure they only stock this stuff where they think it will sell. I am located in the Bay Area, CA where it seems to be very popular. Maybe you could put a request in for the store to carry it

  2. Feeling tired and listless lately? Has the bottom fallen out of your world? Try Jongga Kimchi and wait 1 hour and 9 minutes and the World will fall out of your Bottom.
    (Lowest cost and most effective enema I have ever found!)

    1. Hilarious! Thanks Thomas. I’ll keep that in mind next time I go for that second serving of Kimchi! Thanks for the detailed description!
