Love is in the air, and when it comes to the people that are most important in your life, Valentine’s Day is yet another great opportunity to show them just how much you care. With the abundance of gift options available at our fingertips, ranging from little luxuries for $10 or less at Costco, or knick knacks and tchotchkes for under $50 at Uncommon Goods, there should be no excuse for showing up empty-handed on the big day. 

It’s for this very reason I was extremely excited to come across an Instagram post by Costco Buys — an account dedicated to the best finds at Costco — showing off the wholesale retailer’s fantastic fan-favorite Tuxedo Chocolate Mousse Cakes. It was at that very moment I knew immediately that I needed this cake in my life and if you feel the same, keep reading on for all the details about it.

While not everybody gets down with the international day of love, one thing we should all be able to agree on is our collective love of delicious chocolate creations, and boy does Costco really show out in that category. The Tuxedo Chocolate Mousse Cake is straight up a chocolate lover’s fantasy. 

Priced at $16.99, each cake features  a rich and creamy mousse that is encompassed in a thin layer of chocolate ganache and sandwiched between two layers of moist chocolate cake. An absolute true treat, this creation is a dangerous combination of affordable and delicious — and followers of the @costcobuys account seem to think the same. “This is the best cake ever,” one commenter wrote, while another said “My favorite! Delish! Must try it!” 

So whether you are shopping for a loved one or just making it a point to show yourself some love, do yourself a favor and slide on over to Costco before these cakes are all picked off by Cupid’s arrows. If not, you just might have to wait for the Easter or Christmas versions of Costco’s famous tuxedo cake — which for me is just too long to wait.
