Of the thousands of food items offered in each Costco warehouse are an assortment of ready-made meals and treats. The Deli and Bakery sections, in particular, are super popular for this reason, but not every item is guaranteed to be at your local spot each time you visit.
Right now, the big-box retailer is gearing up for spring and summer and all the delicious foods that go with both seasons. Here is what the chefs and bakers behind the counters at Costco are cooking up right now, according to eyewitness reports. And for more, don't miss these 6 Things You'll See at Costco This Year.
Mini Cranberry Orange Bisconie
This bakery item made its debut in 2020. "Each batch is baked with cranberries and orange zest, then sprinkled with crystal sugar," Costco says on Facebook.
Like other treats, these bisconies come and go, but were recently spotted at a warehouse by Instagram account @costco_empties. A box of 12 is $5.99.
Comments on the post range from "So good!!!" to "Ummm these are FREAKING delicious with coffee, or not..warmed up even frozen lol."
"Easter means pie!" says Instagram account @costcoorganic about the Apple Pie that's in some bakery sections right now.
This isn't the first time the gigantic, 4.5-pound treat has been spotted in the bakery section this year. Back in February, it was seen out after Valentine's Day. Now could be a good time to grab one for $12.99 if you have any Easter, backyard, or other Spring celebrations coming up.
@Costcoorganic notes that although the pie is made with organic apples, the entire pie is not organic.
Beef chili isn't normally a Spring food, but Costco is changing that. Instagram account @thecostcopro calls it "A random and nice surprise," when they spotted it in a warehouse in Florida recently.
The dish is priced at $3.49 in the deli section and comes with ground beef, kidney beans, pinto beans, and shredded mild cheddar sprinkled on top.
Garlic Seasoned Drumsticks
Another family-favorite, ready-made option in the deli section is now available ahead of warmer grilling weather. Costco members can now get packs of seasoned drumsticks for $2.49 a pound. @Costcoorganic saw some with garlic seasoning at the beginning of April.
The cooking instructions say these drumsticks can be heated in the oven at 450 degrees Fahrenheit or grilled on medium-high for around 40 minutes. For either method, the meat should get up to 165 degrees Fahrenheit inside to avoid the possibility of foodborne illnesses.
