Costco Is Selling a Heart-Shaped Cheesecake, and It’s All We Need for Valentine’s Day

Thank you, Costco, for giving us the perfect Valentine's Day dessert.

As we all know, February is the month of heart-shaped things; pizzas, cakes, chocolate and even waffles. Now we’re adding yet another heart-shaped gift to our holiday wishlist: a chocolate-covered Costco cheesecake.

What Is This Lovely Cheesecake?

If you’re looking for a serious indulgence this Valentine’s Day, you need this Costco cheesecake. Of course, this isn’t your regular, everyday plain cheesecake; it’s coated in a chocolate ganache, and the sides are lined with sprinkles. Unsurprisingly, it weighs three pounds. There’s a whole lot of deliciousness going on here, and whether you’re in a relationship or single, this dessert is reason enough to celebrate on February 14th.

It can be yours for $19.99. Instagrammer CostcoBuys was the first to spot it, and they were thrilled about sharing the news:

If you don’t have a Costco nearby but you’re hoping to impress your valentine, never fear. Check out this list of our top 10 cheesecake recipes.

Who Makes It?

Unlike Costco’s treasured 5-pound pumpkin cheesecake, this heart-shaped treat isn’t made by the store’s bakery. Instead, it’s created by Junior’s, a name bakery fans will most certainly recognize. Junior’s is a New York-based chain that has mastered the art of making cheesecakes.

How Long Is the Cheesecake Available?

If your heart is yearning for this heart, it looks like you have a little less than 10 days to get your hands on one. If the sell-by date on CostcoBuys’ cake is the same throughout the country, you can expect these to disappear by February 20.

You’ll have to make the trip to Costco soon—like, probably this week—to snag this treat before it’s gone. While you’re there, pick up these things chefs buy at Costco to build your perfect Valentine’s meal.
