Costco members all over are still feeling disappointed about the sudden and unexpected disappearance of the food court churros. The bulk grocer has certainly made up for the loss with delicious bakery finds like flourless chocolate cake and triple chocolate cream pie. However, if you’re missing that warm cinnamon sugar taste, Costco’s latest bakery treat may just check all the boxes that have been lacking.

Spotted by Instagrammer @costcobuys, the warehouses are now stocked with Cinnaroll Twists, a hybrid pastry that combines cinnamon rolls and churros. The long twists are reminiscent of a churro, but taste more like a gooey cinnamon roll. The only downside upon quick glance is that these seem to be missing the iconic cinnamon roll glaze, but you can always whip up a quick version yourself by combining warm water with powdered sugar or crafting your own cream cheese frosting

These are best served warm (obviously!) and will make for an exciting dessert at any event. You can snack on these plain, but they could also be taken up a notch topped with a scoop of your favorite ice cream. (Pro tip: Everything’s better with ice cream.)

If you don’t have any dinner parties, birthday celebrations, or holidays coming up, you can also just grab these to try out for yourself. The twists would be a perfect afternoon pick-me-up with a mug full of coffee or tea, or as an afternoon treat. “Bought these twice,” wrote one commenter. 

Each box is currently selling for $6.99 and contains 10 pastries. If that feels like a bit too much, you can always throw these in the freezer and defrost one at a time when you’re ready to eat. As we all witnessed the devastating fate of the churro, you may want to give these a try while you can.
