The Costco Cheesecake That May Be Its Best Dessert Yet

Costco's bakery is just one of the many outstanding aspects of this warehouse retail chain according to its members. And its newest concoction, the Lemon Meringue Cheesecake, is available right in time for the summer party season. The dessert is brimming with bold and enticing flavors thanks to the winning combination of tangy lemon meringue and creamy cheesecake. Accordingly, fans of Costco's baked goods can't wait to sample the dessert for themselves to see if it lives up to their lofty expectations.

In addition to the chain's many bulk buys, including affordable, high-quality goods from the Kirkland Signature private label, the Costco bakery is also well-regarded among members. From pies to muffins to massive sheet cakes perfect for feeding party guests, devoted shoppers know there's always something fresh to satisfy their sweet tooth. The store's latest selection is no exception, and its delectable flavors are only rivaled by the massive size of this heavyweight dessert.

Lemon Meringue Cheesecake fever is sweeping social media

Upon making its Instagram debut, Costco's Lemon Meringue Cheesecake has already been met with great anticipation. The latest in a long line of lovable baked goods, this dessert boasts a graham cracker crust as the foundation for rich, lemon-infused cheesecake, zesty lemon filling, and perfectly textured, toasted meringue. This tasty treat will also ensure that you have cheesecake for days, as it weighs a whopping 4 pounds. The cheesecake retails at $19.99, which is quite a deal when you consider the size and appeal of the dessert.

While popular, many Costco shoppers are claiming they can't find the new cheesecake in their local stores. One commenter stated they'd visited two separate Costco locations but failed to find the dessert. Another lamented that they couldn't track down the latest baked good in a California store. As for those shoppers lucky enough to find the Lemon Meringue Cheesecake where they live, they have nothing but great things to say about the dessert.

What are shoppers saying about Costco's latest cheesecake?

Today quoted one Costco shopper who was able to find the cheesecake at their local store's bakery. According to the customer, the dessert is "sweet, savory and tart," while the shopper's husband declared it "the best one yet." The author of the Today article was also able to snag a cheesecake for himself and offered an equally glowing assessment. Praising its "homemade quality," the author deemed the dessert "one of the best slices of cheesecake I have had in recent memory."

You really can't beat reviews like that, especially considering other shoppers offered equally positive opinions. The only negative mentioned was the size of the cheesecake, which could prove unwieldy for smaller households and single shoppers. While Costco has not officially commented on its latest dessert, some worry that it may only be available for a short time based on the roll-out of other popular baked goods. As a result, members are encouraged to pick one up as soon as it's available in their local stores.
