Get Your Costco Pumpkin Cheesecake While There’s Still Time
It wouldn’t be fall if we didn’t have Costco’s absurdly oversized pumpkin desserts to discuss. If you’ve been paying attention to their gargantuan offerings, you might already know that one of their most popular items of all time is their ridiculously large pumpkin pie. Notably, the pie recipe hasn’t changed since 1987 because why mess with a good thing, right? The only change the company has made has been to make it even bigger.
But that was not the case with another fall favorite. Last year, Costco rotated out the enormous pumpkin cheesecake that weighs five pounds (that’s one more pound than the famous pumpkin pie), and instead sold a “Harvest Spice” version of it made with sweet potatoes in a graham cracker crust with a brown sugar topping. This holiday season, however, they have brought back the original, reports Delish.
The original also has the sweet graham cracker crust, but instead of the sweet potato filling, it’s a straight pumpkin version and the topping is a spiced sour cream. It’s a seasonal item that will only run for the two weeks right around Thanksgiving (right now!), so that means if you want to get your hands on this giant fall dessert, you need to head in right away. The cake is pre-scored into 16 even pieces to make divvying it up at home easy (it also means each of those pieces weighs in at a hefty five ounces!). The whole thing costs just $14.99, which is less than a dollar per slice!
Of course, if you’re the kind of person who can’t bear to skip out on the holiday baking, we’ve got a pumpkin cheesecake you can make yourself right here. It probably won’t weigh five pounds, though. Maybe you could just serve them both? Because clearly Costco agrees with us that there’s no such thing as too much pumpkin cheesecake.
