As soon as the clock strikes midnight and Thanksgiving is over, it’s officially time to prepare for the long list of holidays that fall in December. Costco seems to be on the same wavelength, as evidenced by the growing selection of seasonal candy for sale in the bakery section.
Not even a week has passed since we feasted on turkey and salad dressing, but the countdown to December 25 has already started. And at first glance, Costco will have enough goodies to keep Santa Claus busy after Christmas Eve. To help you shop smarter, here is a list of seasonal baked goods that have already been spotted in warehouses.

Costco’s bakery section is known for its wide selection of cakes, cookies, and pies. However, there is a whole different kind of goodies on sale this holiday season. Kirkland Signature’s peppermint bark is a holiday favorite at just under $ 10 a box, and it was spotted in some warehouses before Thanksgiving. Now that the pumpkin spice season is officially over, other places will surely have this seasonal bakery item on display the next time you shop.
Considering that chocolate and peppermint are holiday staples, it’s probably no surprise that this beloved bakery item is back. Costco’s $ 7.99 Peppermint Chocolate Chunk Breads pair this winning flavor combination with none other than Danish frosting.
This year, Instagram user @costcohotfinds spotted breads for sale at a local Costco before December 1. Although they searched for the sugary treats in two different places, they only found them on display in one of the stores. Remember: Bakery offerings differ in every warehouse, so your neighborhood store may not have one right now.

Two are always better than one, a saying that rings especially true when it comes to holiday treats. Does that make the Costco bakers who loaded five types of festive cookies into a single variety box the real heroes of the season? These $ 9.99 packs include 42 coconut and almond chocolates, holiday candy, frozen ginger molasses, lemon shortbread, and powdered nut brownie cookies. Instagram user @costcodeals recently spotted seasonal packages on display at a local warehouse. FYI: they weigh more than you might think; in total, they weigh about 2 pounds each.
As the members of Costco know, change is constant in the bakery section. So, it’s quite likely that additional items will make their baking or seasonal baking debut in the coming weeks. An expanded selection could include crisp raspberry cookies, cinnamon butter cakes, or even 84 packets of holiday cookies.
