Biscoff Cookie & Cookie Butter Ice Cream Bars

Earlier this week, u/305golf shared with the Costco subreddit: "Lotus Biscoff Ice Cream. I enjoy these cookies, didn't know they had it in ice cream."

If you've flown Delta, you might be familiar these cookies that the brand says continue to be baked exclusively in their plant in Belgium, just as they have since 1932. Many fans of Lotus Biscoff love these toasty, sweet little biscuits dunked in coffee. But ice cream bars? We're intrigued, too.

Friday, u/shiant shared a trunk shot, saying: "My Costco haul today."

This grocery order got people talking—and one of the most-discussed items was the Costco meatloaf and mashed potatoes. U/DonkeymanPicklebutt asked, "How is the meat loaf? I have been tempted to get it in the past."

After a number of comments, the general consensus among these members is that this meatloaf is crave-worthy and filling, and that the mashed potatoes are in fact real, not flakes.

Pumpkin Spice Loaf

Earlier this week, u/RiverRooted shared, "Pumpkin Spice Loaf spotted in the wild. Delicious."

U/PM_MeYourAvocados cited nutrition info that suggests 1/10th of this pumpkin loaf weighs in at 420 calories, 21 grams of fat, and 35 grams of sugar.

Sounds heavy, but using pumpkin in healthier ways can be amazing for you. If you're craving all the pumpkin right now, read up on One Major Effect of Eating Pumpkin, Says Dietitian.

Korean Style Chicken Wings

Yes, amazing, but don't get too excited. We need to preface this by stating that u/zebedeeAU captioned this as a "New offering in an Aussie Costco food court."

But, as some commenters observed, it's definitely interesting to learn what the Costco food court offers in other parts of the world. For some of the latest on the Costco food courts closer to home, check out The Unhealthiest Costco Food Court Orders, Say Dietitians.
