The Internet Is Losing It Over Costco’s 5-Pound Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie
We're going to have to find this pie, ASAP.
If you have a voracious sweet tooth like me, it’s time to rejoice: Costco has your newest dessert obsession. The peanut butter chocolate cream pie just dropped on Monday, March 13, 2023, and has gained instant notoriety thanks to a video from Laura Lamb of @costcohotfinds. Her TikTok review has now been viewed more than 3.8 million times and generated almost 150,000 likes. Check it out for yourself below:

What Is Costco’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie?
The pie consists of a buttery graham cracker crust, one layer of peanut butter mousse and one layer of chocolate mousse. It is topped with cute little piped swirls of peanut butter mousse and a final dusting of graham cracker crumbs around the edges. In the video, the pie looks perfectly fluffy, crumbly, soft and altogether massive. Is your mouth watering yet?!
In her TikTok, Lamb describes this monster pie as “dangerously delicious.” It weighs in at a whopping four and a half pounds and is “rich, but… light and fluffy at the same time,” according to her interview with TODAY.com.
How Expensive Is Costco’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie?
The peanut butter chocolate pie costs $19.99. While this is obviously a step up from Costco’s famous $6.99 pumpkin pie, keep in mind that this pie is a whole pound bigger. Plus, if you cut this pie into eight pieces (still ginormous!), it would come out to just $3 a slice. That certainly beats the $8 slice from my neighborhood restaurant.
How Do I Get Costco’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie?
The peanut butter chocolate pie is only available in the United States right now. Furthermore, some commenters on Lamb’s video have claimed that the peanut butter chocolate pie is not yet in their local Costco. Admittedly, this happened to me as well—when I drove to Richmond, California to taste-test the behemoth, it was unfortunately nowhere to be found.
However, because this pie was only launched on Monday, March 13, it is possible it may take a couple of weeks for the pie to be distributed across the country. For the truly obsessed, might we suggest checking out the Costco Finds Facebook page? According to Business Insider, many dedicated fans have teamed up there to successfully source the pie.
