Pastry aficionados, rejoice! Now is the time to run — not walk — to your local Costco, because the beloved big box retailer just brought a fan-favorite treat back to its bakery selection. After many months that left Costco shoppers wondering if the beloved pastry would ever return again, it’s finally back on the store’s shelves.

Costco’s Cherry Danishes Are Back by Popular Demand

Once a Costco staple, Costco’s Cherry Danish has been missing from the store’s bakery for quite some time. The tasty treat’s absence left many customers dismayed, but the tides have turned, and Costco’s Cherry Danish has been spotted among the store’s pastry selection once again.

Each package of Costco’s Cherry Filled Danish contains four pastries stuffed with cherry filling and topped with just the right amount of icing. Reheating them is as easy as placing them on a baking pan and popping them into an oven preheated to 350° for ten minutes. Wait five minutes after taking them out of the oven and voilà! Fresh, hot, flaky danish oozing with delicious cherry filling.

Costco is known not only for its excellent bakery selection but for delivering baked goods in large quantities, so it’s not surprising that to purchase one package of Cherry-Filled Danish, you actually have to purchase two. Any two four-packs of Costco Signature Danish are typically priced at approximately $12, which is a great price for so much pastry. After all, we all need to make up for lost time when Costco shoppers longed for this fan-favorite treat, so bring on the extra danish!

If you’re not yet a Costco member, the store’s Signature Cherry Danish is only one of many reasons a Costco membership is worthwhile. Costco is home to the $1.50 hotdog, a new French-inspired ice cream sandwich, and this Halloween decoration that doubles as a dessert, which is sure to get you into the spooky spirit this fall.
