No stranger to the sweets department, Costco has a long history of serving up delicious baked treats that can rival anyone’s favorite bakery. With a plethora of cakes, cookies, danishes, and more to choose from, a first-time visit to the Costco bakery section can be quite the overwhelming experience due to the sheer amount of choices available. Over the years, social media accounts like @Costco_doesitagain have popped up and served the much-needed purpose of highlighting newcomers to the Costco bakery, giving us common consumers the chance to find a diamond in the rough. The newest find from the popular account, comes packaged in the form of a decadent looking Strawberry Crumb Cake — and by the looks of it, this bad boy does not seem as if it’ll disappoint. 

This 32-ounce masterpiece retails for just $8.99, and comes topped with buttery shortbread crumbles and powdered sugar. For that price and size, if you’re smart about it, you could have a slice a day for at least a week. If you’re like me though, it may be too hard to just stop at one slice per day. 

Commenters on social media had a lot to say about the warehouse’s newest cake, with one claiming “I just bought this the other day. It’s so freakin’ good. I keep it in the fridge.” Another pleaded with their friends, “omg if you see, please grab for me please. I will pay for mine and yours!”

In my experience, whenever something gains this much positive attention, you know it’s going to be a hit. Check with your local Costco to see if the Strawberry Crumb Cake is available near you, and if you have similar luck to the commenter who “literally just got one for $6,” then you may want to stock up with an extra for testing in the parking lot before the drive home.
