We all love making a trip to Costco for affordable freezer meals or the store’s famous $5 rotisserie chicken, but real shoppers know that the best place to be in the warehouse is the bakery. Costco’s bakery section is always teeming with all kinds of new goodies, like these mini all-American fudge cakes and these almond Florentine cookies. Costco certainly knows what to offer shoppers when it comes to tasty treats, and if you’re on the hunt for a dessert at Costco for your next gathering this summer, you might want to stop over to the bakery and grab yourself one of these new banana cream pies.

This delicious 3.5-pound banana cream pie is made with real bananas and a banana cream filling inside of a butter graham cracker crust, topped with caramel whipped topping and a caramel drizzle. This massive pie is the perfect dessert if you’re serving a large crowd — especially if you want something chilled that will cool you off during those warmer summer months ahead. The best part? These pies are sold for just $16, making them the ideal grab-and-go dessert for your backyard barbecues this summer.

Costco shoppers can’t wait to get their hands on this pie as soon as possible. “OMG, I really want to try this pie,” writes one Instagram user on’s recent post. Another expresses their desire to try it, despite not seeing it in their own local warehouse. “Whattt, we haven’t gotten this yet!! Looks so good!”

Costco is known for selling large desserts for parties at affordable prices. The store’s 4-pound pumpkin pie is a staple around the holidays, and along with the banana cream pie the retailer also brought back a 4.5-pound chocolate peanut butter pie; a chocolate-filled, graham cracker-crust pie with a frosted peanut butter edge. Needless to say, if you’re looking for the perfect dessert to bring to your next soirée and you don’t feel like turning on the oven to make something yourself, then a trip to Costco might just be the thing you need.

Can’t find the banana cream pie at your local Costco? Then why not make one yourself? If you don’t feel like going to the store, feel free to shop on Instacart to snag the amazing deals.
