The “Bubbly” $14 Costco Glass Gem Hiding in the Refrigerated Section
If you’re a Costco fan, you know the membership is well worth the cost for most. From delicious foods and baked goods to unbeatable prices on home goods like cleaning supplies and organizational gadgets, it’s no wonder the store’s amassed a cult following. And one other benefit you might not have considered? Tons of their tasty packaged foods come in incredible reusable packaging. From shooter glasses to glass ramekins, there are always surprises in store (literally) — and the latest one is perfect for your New Year’s Eve celebration.
Costco’s Dolce Mia La Vie Gourmand Chocolate Dream is a pack of six sweet piles of chocolate cream, cocoa cookie, and whipped cream all stuffed into adorable glass champagne flutes. Here’s our suggestion: Serve the delicious desserts at your Christmas dinner or holiday party, then use the glasses for your New Year’s Eve midnight toast. At only $13.99, you’ll get so much bang for your buck — and your guests will have no idea.
The Italian-inspired trifles are flying off the shelves, so check your local Costco ASAP to snag this deal while it lasts. Each glass is about 2 ounces, the perfect size for a celebratory sip of champagne, prosecco, sparkling wine, or any other drink you want to serve up. They’d also be great for making the little ones at the party feel fancy with their sparkling apple cider without the risk of breaking more valuable glasses. (Or you can save or reuse them for January 1’s breakfast mimosas.)
While we’re talking champagne, here are our four favorite (affordable) alternatives to Dom Perignon, and Sam’s Club’s $20 Member’s Mark Champagne Didier Dumond Brut recently beat out a name-brand champagne bottle that’s three times the price in a blind taste test. Do with that information what you will!
If You Love These Glasses, Then You’ll Definitely Love…
