It's not surprising that heading into a holiday, grocery store shelves start to clear of popular picks. With Memorial Day coming up this weekend, Costco is bound to start selling out of some of the essentials you might need for the long weekend. If you're planning to host friends and family for a cookout or kickoff to summer, you're going to want to hit up your local warehouse sooner rather than later.
Costco has put some popular items on sale this week heading into MDW, which, combined with the popular items on social media, means things are going to start running out. Here's what you should grab before they're gone.
Bachan's The Original Japanese Barbecue Sauce
No Memorial Day cookout is complete without some grilling and you know what that means: Everyone's going to be reaching for their go-to BBQ sauce.
Bachan's Japanese barbecue sauce is already getting a lot of attention on social media, with popular Costco accounts showing it off and getting shoppers to the warehouses to purchase. A bottle is just shy of $10 in the warehouse, and if this is on your MDW shopping list, you might want to grab it sooner rather than later so you can slather it on everything.
The Ice Cream Party Box
Popular Costco Instagram account @costcobuys spotted this $19.99 kit for an ice cream party in a box, and there's no doubt this will be a popular pick for the long weekend.
Every cookout needs dessert, and what better way to enjoy the warm weather than with an ice cream party? It includes everything except your favorite frozen treat, so grab one of these boxes and a couple of gallons of ice cream, and dessert is settled.
It's a must to cap off the night with a campfire, which means this s'mores kit is an essential. It's been popping up all over Instagram, though, so it's a hot one.
The $11 box comes with marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate, so you just need to supply the fire. This makes the end of the evening really simple, so we're sure plenty of people will be shopping for these this week.
Nestle Drumstick Variety Pack
Don't want to deal with an ice cream sundae bar? Then grab a box of Drumsticks. The 16-count variety pack is on sale for $2.50 off for Memorial Day, which means they'll be flying off the shelves. You can stock up on these to eat throughout MDW with friends and family and keep the rest in your freezer to last through the summer.
Spindrift Sparkling Water
The 30-county variety pack of Spindrift is included in the Members Only savings event going on now and is the perfect beverage to have stocked for your party. These sparkling waters are refreshing without packing in sugar or carbs. You're limited to purchasing 10 with $4 off, but that means people will be maxing out the allowance — and shelves could be cleared fairly quickly this week.
Mini Snickerdoodle Cakes
Costco shoppers have started spotting the Mini Snickerdoodle Cakes in their bakery departments again. When a popular item comes back, it usually flies off the shelves. That could very possibly be the case this week while people are stocking up for the long weekend with family and friends. If you spot these in your bakery, definitely grab a pack before it's too late.
