The Costco Bakery Is Now Selling Snickerdoodle Mini Cakes

Thanks to a Sunday morning Reddit share from u/ThisBestBeGood (who appears to be a Costco member from the Midwest), we've learned that the Costco bakery is now selling snickerdoodle cupcakes at some warehouse locations.

For fans of Costco cupcakes—with chocolate the arguable fan favorite—the new snickerdoodle cupcakes could be cause for a quick Costco trip.

Based on our brief research around the Internet, it appears that the snickerdoodle cupcakes may be a true debut for the warehouse chain.

However, some sources seem to suggest Costco has sold a non-iced version in the past, which some customers knew as "snickerdoodle muffins."

Nutrition Insights About This Treat

Though the nutrition information for Costco bakery items is rarely included on the package, what we can tell from the list of ingredients is that there's a lot of stuff in this new cupcake.

Perhaps an unsurprising heads-up: Not all the contents in this dessert sound like they came straight from the earth; there appear to be some synthetic things in here… so, may we suggest: Small doses, and indulge only on occasion.
