Inside Costco warehouses, sometimes twice the size of other grocery stores, it can be easy to get accidentally caught spending way too long looking for items on your list. Unfortunately, the chain’s website isn’t the best at letting members know exactly what’s available in store.
There are over 100 million members worldwide, and many of them use social media to help others and let them know about items they’ve spotted recently, including bakery items. The assortment of freshly baked treats changes all the time, but we’ve dug up exactly what you can find right now before the 4th of July.
This favorite comes and goes throughout the year, and it’s officially on sale right now. Instagram account @costcobuys spotted it again recently, pointing out that a 12-pack costs $6.99.
This Costco bakery favorite also just got seen for the first time in a long time with Instagram accounts like @CostcoContessa posted about this over the past few weeks. Pie is back at an opportune time, just in time for backyard barbecues all 4th of July weekend. It weighs over 4 pounds and costs $15.99
Certain seasons come with certain flavors, and summer and cheesecake go together like winter and mint. This is evident because a brand new bakery item has just debuted in the warehouse, and it’s another iconic dessert type.
The newest chocolate cheesecake, like the Key Lime Pie, weighs over 4 pounds and is feeding a crowd. It is made with three types of chocolate and costs just under $20.
Several treats have received the “mini” treatment since the pandemic, including the All American Chocolate cake. This is a whole new, smaller bakery item, featuring a vanilla cake filled with raspberry jelly and topped with pink buttercream and white chocolate shavings. A pack of six cakes costs $8.99.
Costco keeps several baked goods stocked year-round, including croissants and muffins. But members reported that the prices of both products had recently increased, and Costco company executives confirmed this. With inflation hitting highs not seen in decades, this news may not be a blow, but it definitely hurts.
“Reluctantly, we raised the price of our muffins and croissants, I think, $1, because the price of many of these raw materials continued to rise up to two times, three times and four times what ‘it was last year,’ Bob Nelson, senior vice president of finance and investor relations at Costco, said on an earnings call in late May.
This means that a pack of 12 plain croissants is now 20% more expensive at $5.99 and a pack of six muffins is $8.99.
