Attention, American Costco members: You might want to pack up your stuff and move to Canada. We just learned, via the @costcodeals Instagram account, that Canadian shoppers can ask for unbaked boxes of baked goods, including pastries, cookies, croissants, and more. They can then take these boxes home and bake their treats fresh whenever they want!

The post shows a box of chocolate chunk cookies that cost $22.99 for 120, and points out that buying 21 of the same already baked cookies from the bakery costs $7.99. That’s a huge price difference! (Around 19 cents per cookie versus 38.) And if you go the DIY way, you get warm, fresh-out-of-your oven treats whenever you want. Just stash the box in your freezer and you can pull out a single cookie when you feel snacky or thaw enough for a whole platter if you’re having company over. We’re not sure what we like more: the savings or the promise of warm baked goods whenever we want.

Unfortunately, it seems as though this is only an option in Canada. We know we haven’t heard of this happening in the States and most of the commenters confirmed: it’s only a thing in Canada. Clearly, we’re not really serious about moving to Canada just for this, but it’s kinda tempting, no?
