There’s something to be thankful for this holiday season – things are getting back to normal, we can finally start feasting and roasting marshmallows in the family fireplaces again. And as the members of Costco already know, there are plenty of baked goods that are about to come back.
Costco’s bakery section is a fan favorite, but seasonal treats steal the show. Lucky for us, Costco superfans are social media posting these special holiday treats so we can get a feel for what might happen soon.
Whether you’re dreaming about them all year round or just waiting for their seasonal return, these favorite pastries are sure to spread holiday cheer for everyone. Here is a list of favorite bakery items from years past that we hope to return for the holidays in 2021.

Instagram user @Costcodeals said he loves this apple pie in November 2020, and he’s not alone. This bakery item is one that seems to come and go. Instagram account @costco_doesitagain spotted him back in June, so he could make his debut soon.
Last year, this 4-pound pie sold for $ 12.99, which is more than enough to make the season bright. However, if it’s a dessert after a big meal, it’s best to eat it in moderation. A single slice of the pie has over 400 calories and has only a few grams of protein and very little fiber.
December is a month to remember in more ways than one, and this returning Costco bakery product could be another. The @CostcoDeals Instagram account made Costco members salivate over cinnamon butter coffee cake in early December last year, and as we move closer to the holiday season, it’s time to the pumpkin spices recede.
Cinnamon is one of the most iconic flavors in holiday baking, and what could be better than eating a slice of this masterpiece with your hot chocolate? At just $ 6.99 last year, this cake was a steal. Again, this is a treat best reserved for special occasions. According to MyFitnessPal, a slice of this cake contains 400 calories and just 4 grams of protein.

Of course, if sweets aren’t your thing, you might want to try the Kirkland brand cheese steal, recommended last December by @ Costco.Love. While it’s not technically part of the baking section, we think no one will blame you for bringing cheese to a holiday party (and if they do, do you really want to be there?).
You can use the flight for cold cuts and cheese platters, or treat yourself to a holiday treat and eat it on your own. While you’re at it, you might want to see if Costco has restocked their “riot-worthy” Parmigiano-Reggiano.
The halls of the Costco bakery section were decorated with Kirkland peppermint rind in early December of last year, according to @Costobuys. The real Belgians-based chocolate and peppermint treat was selling for $ 9.99 back then, and some eagle-eyed members have already seen it for the same price in warehouses now. Instagram accounts @CostcoSisters and @ costco.love both posted about it recently, almost a month before its 2020 debut.
The serving size is about 1 ½ ounces, and there are about 14 in each box for the same price as the last holiday season.
