Costco Just Brought Back 2 of Its Most Popular Holiday Bakery Finds — But the Price Looks a Little Different
Finding the perfect holiday dessert isn’t just a pie-in-the-sky notion. At least that’s what @Costcohotfinds told her 913K Instagram followers when she posted some pretty big news. And I do mean big.
Seasonal pies have returned to the bakery at Costco, and they are huge. The caramel-y, nutty pecan pie is four pounds (you read that right — four pounds!) of complete yumminess, thanks to a buttery, flaky crust packed with sweet, crunchy filling. Pro tip: Heat it up just a tad to get it warm and gooey, then top with whipped cream or ice cream.
But don’t think it stops there. The infamous pumpkin cheesecake is back and it’s the dessert of your dreams. Weighing in at five pounds, those who go by the pre-marked slices will have enough tastiness to distribute out to 16 people. If you go by what I plan on doing, however, you’ll keep all the golden graham cracker crust, rich cheesecake body, and holiday spiced cream top layer to yourself. Selfish? Maybe so, but I’m OK with that!
For those looking to run out and grab the returning holiday treats this year, the prices may look a little different than before. Unlike the pumpkin pie, which actually decreased in price this year, both the pecan pie and cheesecake are up from their 2020 prices (they were $13.99 and $14.99, respectively) to sell for $17. But we’ll forgive the wholesale giant. Because any way you slice it, their return for the holiday season is some great news.
If you’re thinking of baking your own pies at home, you’ll need this $5 time saver.
