Costco Irish Soda Bread Is Back in Stores for St. Patrick’s Day

You can grab a two-pound pound loaf for $5.99!

No matter where you are, there’s always a celebration to be had on St. Patrick’s Day. Here in Chicago, we like to dye our river green and make the entire city into one massive party—when it’s safe, of course. Though it may be difficult to throw our usual St. Patrick’s Day party this year, we’ve still got you covered for the verdant event.

As you may already know, Costco is definitely the place to go when it comes to preparing for get-togethers. We’ll need something to eat with our Irish beer—why not some classic Irish soda bread?

Irish I Had This Bread All Year Long

If you’ve never had Irish soda bread before, you are absolutely missing out.

It’s a quick bread that uses sodium bicarbonate instead of yeast. All other ingredients are mostly the same, including flour, baking soda, salt and milk. The texture is usually made up of a hearty, thick crust with a soft, fluffy middle. It’s hard to explain, but trust me, it’s good stuff.

Costco’s Irish soda bread is made by Nellie Duncan and comes in 2.5 pound loaves. That’s more than enough for a small gathering. Besides, it’s even better a few days later! Pair this bread with some famous Kerrygold butter.

Does It Cost a Pot of Gold?

Luckily, no! A single loaf only runs you $5.99. With a deal like that, you might catch me grabbing an extra to keep in the freezer, too! Check your local Costco warehouse for these guys before they completely sell out.

While you’re there, why not grab some of Costco’s massive margaritas and fresh citrus trees for the road?
