Fans of Costco’s pumpkin cheesecake – start your engines, because it is back!
Look, we know Halloween has been and gone, but in a flash Thanksgiving has come around over in the States, and that means one thing – MORE pumpkin goodies.
Yup, Costco’s much-anticipated pumpkin cheesecake is back and it’s making waves! This dessert sensation has captured the hearts and palates of many since it first graced the store’s shelves.
It’s budget-friendly, it’s massive, and it’s delicious… What’s not to love?!
This seasonal masterpiece features a luscious pumpkin cheesecake filling nestled on a classic graham cracker crust.
But that’s not all! It comes adorned with a generous dollop of spiced sour cream icing both in the centre and gracefully lining the edges of the cheesecake – adding an extra layer of deliciousness to every bite. Is your mouth watering yet?
What truly sets this dessert apart is its staggering size, weighing in at a jaw-dropping 2.2 kg.
To ensure there’s no need for dessert-related duels at your next gathering, it’s thoughtfully pre-sliced into 16 equally mouthwatering portions.
And if you’re wondering about the icing on the cake, it’s the price – an astonishingly low $17.99 (£14.67) for the entire masterpiece, making it less than $1.50 (£1.20 ) per slice!
News of the long-awaited return of the pumpkin cheesecake is starting to ripple across social media. A video showcasing this delectable delight was posted on Instagram by the user @costcohotfinds, and the response has been nothing short of electric.
Thousands of likes and hundreds of comments have flooded in, as food enthusiasts express their excitement for this delectable seasonal treat.
One person gave it very high praise by saying: “Better than Cheesecake Factory and a fraction of the price.”
Another had some great advice for anybody planning a Thanksgiving meal: “It’s not going to last that long. You’re better off freezing it and then taking it out of the freezer the night before Thanksgiving and putting it in the fridge.”
Given that pumpkin season will be over before we know it, it’s best to get one of these to save yourself from missing out!
Sadly, this is just one for the US Twisted readers, but we’ll let you know if the cheesecake is making it to US Costco stores, too.
We’re not jealous at all… nope!
