There is no shortage of oversized desserts at Costco right now. Not only can you pick up a 12-inch, nearly 4-pound pumpkin pie ahead of Thanksgiving, but eagle-eyed Costco shoppers have also spotted the return of huge tiramisu cakes in stores, as well.
Perfect for serving at parties (or for a party of one), Costco’s Kirkland Signature Tiramisu Bar Cake reportedly retails for around $15.99 and weighs a hefty 38 ounces, or about two-and-a-half pounds. Because tiramisu is highly perishable, shoppers can find it in the store bakery’s refrigerated section. Or if you can’t get to a Costco in person, you can also order it online via Instacart.
“Coffee, chocolate, and cake all in one? This Tiramasu Bar Cake is like a little slice of Italy right in Costco! This also happens to be one of my Costco bakery favorites!” Instagram user @Costcobuys wrote in the caption of a photo of the cakes:
Costco’s tiramisu cake has reportedly been around for years but is not always in stock. However, if the comments on left on @CostcoBuys’ Instagram post are any indication, the dessert has a cult-like following.
“Tiramisu is my favorite dessert. I had the Costco one a year or so ago and it was probably the best one I had ever had!” wrote commenter @ktotey.
According to a review on CostCuisine.com, Costco’s tiramisu tastes “just as good as restaurant quality tiramisu.”
“The cake was very light and fluffy, the whipped cream icing and mousse is smooth and rich and not overly sweet,” reads the review. “The flavors are quite bold and complex, you could definitely taste the coffee, cream cheese and mascarpone cheese.”
And in case you were wondering, Sam’s Club is also getting in on the big desserts. The Sam’s Club exclusive Member’s Mark Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake is 4.5 pounds and they’re offering a couple other interesting options, such as a 4.5-pound Member’s Mark apple lattice pie and a 3-pound Kentucky Woods bourbon barrel cake.
Will you be picking one of these delicious-looking desserts up today?
