Ham & Cheese Pastry
Costco's ham and cheese pastries are creating buzz as a recent addition to the bakery… however, we're seeing not all the reviews are so great. Some Reddit Costco community members have mentioned a texture that's not ideal, while another mentioned they were "not a fan" of the cheese's flavor. One suggested solution was to get croissants and add your own ham and cheese. Voila! That's an easy lunch to pack for the beach or pool. (Just be mindful of summer food safety.)
Vanilla Chocolate Chip Muffins
Costco's vanilla chocolate chunk muffins are "back in rotation," said redditor @cveyes. "Tastes like a chocolate chip cookie in muffin form." From what we're seeing, yes, that drizzle is the real deal.
