Just like trays of cookies, strings of twinkling lights, and cups of eggnog, gingerbread houses are a seasonal staple bound to get you into the holiday spirit. Kids and adults alike delight in decorating a miniature cookie house with peppermint pinwheels, gum drops, and colorful icing, but the best part might be breaking it down to eat it, piece by gingerbread piece. If all this talk about gingerbread houses is stirring up some festive nostalgia, then you are in luck — because Costco has got you covered with the return of a beloved gingerbread house staple.

Costco’s Gingerbread Mansion Is Back

Costco’s Gingerbread Mansion has made its much-anticipated return to warehouse shelves — a sign that the holiday season is fast approaching. This fan-favorite gingerbread house has a reputation for flying off of shelves and selling out quickly each year. And one look at its contents makes it easy to see why: The Gingerbread Mansion comes pre-assembled. The most challenging part about building a gingerbread house is the construction, but Costco’s Gingerbread Mansion does the heavy lifting for you, so all you have to do is decorate it to your heart’s content.

Priced at just $19.99, the Gingerbread Mansion comes with everything you need to decorate the edible holiday estate of your dreams. The pre-built house comes securely wrapped in plastic, and each of its delicious accouterments comes individually wrapped: white icing, red and green icing, peppermint pinwheels, gummy trees, gummy stars, tiny candies that look like holiday lights, and more. It also comes with instructions for those who like a little guidance, or you can decorate totally freestyle. 

Long-time Costco shoppers might recognize the Gingerbread Mansion from the last several holiday seasons. Even though the holidays are still several weeks away, you will want to head to Costco soon if you want to bring home a gingerbread house of your own — because once they’re sold out, they are gone for the season.
