Costco’s Pumpkin Cheesecake, the Dessert of Your Dreams, Is Back

This nearly five-pound cheesecake one of the best things to ever happen to the holidays

It’s enormous, it’s decadent, and if the frenzy on social media is any indication, you’re going to want to get your hands on one soon. Yep, Costco is bringing back its nearly 5-pound Kirkland Signature Pumpkin Cheesecake! The holidays just got a whole lot sweeter.

For a dessert that will serve everyone, look no further than Costco. Of course, as much as we adore devouring Costco’s famous 4-pound pumpkin pie, a delicious cheesecake also deserves its time in the spotlight.

Why do people love this cheesecake?

It’s “5 pounds of magic,” as one Instagram commenter called it. Costco pumpkin cheesecake is made with a golden graham cracker crust, a rich cheesecake body and a holiday spiced cream top layer. The supermarket chain has sold the giant pumpkin cheesecake during the holidays for the past several years.

Instagram user @costcohotfinds first shared the news of the legendary pumpkin cheesecake’s return:

How many does the cheesecake serve?

The short answer: plenty! The cheesecake is large enough to for 16 generous slices. It even has pre-cut markings on the surface to help you achieve the perfect ratio. We recommend using a heavy-duty server to make serving a…piece of cake.

Having a smaller get-together this year? Here’s our guide to freezing cheesecake, just in case you have a little left over.

How long will it be available?

Get to your nearest Costco ASAP, because this sweet treat is only available for a limited time (about 2 weeks or while supplies last). You can pick one up for $17.99. Less than $1.25 per slice—which, if you ask us, is worth every penny.

And if you’re still craving something pumpkin, don’t miss out on Costco’s decadent pumpkin loaves. They even come with cream cheese frosting!
