Costco’s 5-Pound Pumpkin Cheesecake Is the Dessert of Your Dreams
This is one of the best things to ever happen to the holidays.
For a dessert that will serve everyone, look no further than Costco. Of course, as much as we adore devouring Costco’s famous 4-pound pumpkin pie, a decadent cheesecake also deserves its time in the spotlight.
The warehouse club is bringing back its 5-pound Kirkland Signature Pumpkin Cheesecake! The holidays just got a whole lot sweeter.
Why do people love this cheesecake?
It’s “5 lbs of magic,” as one Instagram commenter says. Costco pumpkin cheesecake is made with a golden graham cracker crust, a rich cheesecake body and a holiday spiced cream top layer. The supermarket chain has sold the giant pumpkin cheesecake during the holidays for the past several years.

How many does the cheesecake serve?
The short answer: plenty! The cheesecake is large enough to for 16 generous slices. It even has pre-cut markings on the surface to help you achieve the perfect ratio. We recommend using a heavy-duty server to make serving a…piece of cake.

How long will it be available?
Get to your nearest Costco ASAP, because this sweet treat is only available for a limited time (about 2 weeks or while supplies last). You can pick one up for $14.99—which, if you ask us, is worth every penny.
And if you’re still craving something pumpkin, don’t miss out on Costco’s decadent pumpkin loaves. They even come with cream cheese frosting!
