Bacon

Costco Chief Financial Officer Richard Galanti recently revealed that the warehouse is struggling to keep up with the high demand for this breakfast staple. "Bacon is up 45% in pounds," he reportedly said on a call with investors. "For whatever reason, there is a lot of demand there, so there is a little bit of a challenge."

According to Fox Business, pork prices are currently high for several reasons: an illness impacting herds in Iowa and Minnesota; the African swine fever in China; and rising inflation as the economy recovers from the pandemic.

It's unclear if this means that Costco customers will have to pay more for bacon or not. In the meantime, here are 55 Cheap Costco Buys That Make the Membership Worth It.

A 24-pack of these bakery favorites was recently on sale for $1.50 off through Sunday, March 7. The lower price of $6.49 meant fans only paid a little over a quarter for each cookie.

But low-prices alone shouldn't necessarily be an excuse to indulge. The ingredient list features some not-so-appetizing additives like artificial flavors and various oils. With 24 in one pack, they're at least great for sharing!

You're in luck! Costco is currently selling a St. Patrick's Day treat with minimal sugar and festive ingredients.

It has creamy white cheddar, parmesan cheese, shredded mozzarella, velvet ricotta, and most importantly, Irish aged cheddar.

The 2.5-pound packs were recently spotted by Instagrammer @costcohotfinds for only $9.99. Though cheap, fun, and quick to cook—this pasta is ready in just three minutes!—you may want to limit how often you indulge in it.
