Because let’s admit it, chaos ensues in the kitchen every time it’s time to prepare Thanksgiving dinner. Sometimes, stuff happens. Unexpected guests may turn up. A dish may get burnt to the point of no redemption. Baking is one of the time consuming activities out there, so you might want to skip the hassle and get Costco’s 5-Pound Pumpkin Cheesecake instead!

Yes, that’s right. The crowd favorite Thanksgiving dessert has returned after being shelved last year. If you can remember, the wholesale retailer attempted to replace Kirkland Signature’s Pumpkin Cheesecake with the Harvest Spice Cheesecake. While the latter tasted good, it just couldn’t hold a candle to the original spiced cheesecake that Costco’s shoppers have loved for years.


Costco's 5-pound pumpkin cheesecake


Costco’s 5-Pound Pumpkin Cheesecake is an iconic fall dessert

Thanksgiving, like all other holidays, has special food. The stars of this holiday’s spread are the stuffed turkey and the dessert, which would usually be pie. Usually, families have top secret family recipes for Thanksgiving. However, given how labor intensive the preparation is, it can get pretty dramatic when there’s no time left to whip up Grandma’s signature dessert. Thankfully, Costco began offering ready-made pastries and cakes to help ease the pressure from stressed out homemakers struggling to cook 10 dishes all at the same time.


Costco’s cheesecake became an instant hit with shoppers since it was a rather interesting version of the classic pumpkin pie. The delicious fall-inspired dessert has a sweet graham cracker crust underneath the rich pumpkin cheesecake topped with spiced sour cream. In comparison, the Harvest Spice Cheesecake contained a combination of sweet potato and pumpkin over the sweet graham cracker crust.

Its brown sugar topper compared to the spiced sour cream definitely sounds more simple. In short, the Kirkland Signature autumn offering contains pure spiced pumpkin goodness mixed with the tangy taste of cheesecake! It definitely deserves the be the centerpiece of anyone’s gathering.


There’s enough of it to go around


As we have said, this 5-pound pumpkin cheesecake is massive. It serves up to 16 pieces, so everyone will definitely be able to enjoy it. After all, family gatherings are dramatic enough without people fighting over dessert. Baking isn’t a piece of cake. It consumes a lot of time, energy and money. So why subject yourself to that when you can just drop by Costco and pick one of these gorgeous giant pumpkin cheesecakes for $14.99?
