Costco's Bakery Just Brought Back a Wildly Popular Spring Dessert

Last year, Costco caused a lot of hype when it introduced its new Lemon Meringue Cheesecake. Lemon enthusiasts may rejoice because the warehouse club has reintroduced this famous dish for 2024!

This week, a Reddit member posted a picture of the cheesecakes next to a sign that advertised them at $21.99. The dish has a graham cracker crust, lemon cheesecake, zesty lemon filling, and a toasted meringue topping.

The pastry dish, which weighs almost four pounds, can feed a throng as it did last year. Several Costco fans posted their comments on the dessert on Reddit, with many expressing their excitement.

"I'd eat it all in one sitting. "No problems," one Redditor commented. "I like lemon meringue pie and cheesecake. What a dream! I'm going to seek for one tomorrow," another person said.

If the dessert has piqued your interest but you're not sure you'll be able to finish it, one buyer suggested wrapping individual portions and freezing them. "They freeze/defrost well," one Reddit member said.

While the comeback cheesecake has gained a lot of attention, the bakery item has not been without criticism. Within the thread, a recurring criticism among consumers is that the dessert is "too sweet," something customers should consider based on the amount of their sweet taste.

The Lemon Meringue Cheesecake isn't the only seasonal dessert making a comeback at Costco's bakery. Earlier this month, the warehouse club reintroduced its Mini Carrot Cakes, which were listed for $9.99.

 These carrot cakes come in a six-count packet and are prepared with raisins, walnuts, and cream cheese frosting. To add a decorative touch, they are topped with an icing carrot.

Additionally, the Lemon Blueberry Loaf has returned to Costco for $8.99. This delicacy, which debuted last spring, is created with lemon batter, blueberries, lemon frosting, and butter streusel.

Aside from Costco, Trader Joe's has lately brought back a favorite lemon-flavored dessert: the Lemon Mini Sheet Cake. This dessert, introduced last spring, consists of a lemon-flavored sheet cake topped with lemon cream cheese frosting and zest.
