7 Costco Bread Items Just Make “Mini” – Eat This Not This

Posted on


Costco may be known for its many products that are great up and down every aisle, including in their beloved bread section. Pies, cakes, and other pastries that weigh more than three, four, and five pounds and more – that’s until now when the warehouse chain started debuting smaller options. The items are miniature, but of course in a large package.

Like all other favorites in the bread section, these four items are known to come and go throughout the year, but with the popularity of sowing, don’t be surprised if smaller versions of your favorite treats pop up soon.

Costco’s latest mini bread offering is Raspberry Mini Cakes with Buttercream Icing, which was discovered in early June by members. Many social media posts were made about him, with one saying that he was a “real deal.”

According to social media, the mini treat was made with a vanilla cake filled with raspberry jelly inside, and topped with pink buttercream and white chocolate. The six pack sold for $ 8.99 and weighed more than 2 pounds.

The same size, but very different in taste is the Snickerdoodle Mini Cake that Costco introduced in its bakery section in the Fall of 2021. The treat recently made her return to Costco to the delight of its members.

She featured a cinnamon cake topped with cinnamon cream cheese frosting and cinnamon cake crumbles. They also come in a six-pack for $ 8.99 — which is $ 1 more than when it first became available last year. Also, like the Raspberry Mini Cake, it weighs more than 44 ounces. That means each cake is about 7 ounces — or more than a pound!

OG Costco members remember the All American Chocolate Cake as a staple in the bread section. The 7-pound cake was a chocolate lover’s dream but unfortunately discontinued in 2020 along with some good Costco products.

The Change.org petition with more than 8,000 signatures called for the warehouse chain to be brought back, but had to wait because the mini version had already started. And it seems to be an okay alternative. Mini All American Chocolate Cakes debuted in July 2021 and started coming and going several times.

This is made with the same three chocolate flavors as the cake, even up to the chocolate brown that is on the side.

There are several different muffin flavors in the bread section, and mini cakes follow the trend. This spring, Mini Carrot Cake is available, just in time for the Easter holidays. Made with carrots, walnuts, and raisins, they are complete with carrots made from icing on top of cream cheese frosting.

Before the Snickerdoodle Mini Cake, the Mini Carrot Cake, and the Raspberry Mini Cake, there were flavors made specifically for Valentine’s Day. Mini Red Velvet Cake was sold in the bakery section about six years ago as cupcakes but appeared again in late January.

Like other mini cake flavors, this one is available in six packs, weighs more than 2.5 pounds, and is made from red velvet cake, ice cream cheese, and red velvet cake.

The other mini bakery item at Costco is this small bisconie. They were first served fresh in 12 packs in 2020, and “Each batch was baked with cranberries and orange peel, then sprinkled with crystal sugar,” Costco said on Facebook. Members prefer fresh or frozen, and with coffee or plain. Box 12 is $ 5.99.
