Shopping at a place like Costco, where there are numerous eye-catching meals, snacks, and treats, can cause you to work up an appetite. If you're craving something sweet, there are some desserts you'll want to keep on your radar.

Recently, shoppers announced the arrival of two bakery items: strawberries and cream bar cake (320 calories per serving) and flan (230 calories per 1/16 cake). As with any other product-related announcement, news of these arrivals generated social media buzz among shoppers.

Introduced last spring, the strawberries and cream bar cake features a white cake layered with strawberry filling and sweet whipped cream. Social media users spotted this item for $18.99.
