“My local store finally got Kirkland Bourbon in,” Michigan’s u/jayqwellan revealed over the weekend. The post already has 30 comments and counting.

The new Cheetos Mac ‘n Cheese was in stock at some Costco locations over the weekend, according to an Instagram post by @CostcoDeals. However, the early hot takes on this version of macaroni and cheese didn’t appear to be overwhelmingly positive. One commenter said, “I feel sick just looking at it.” Another added, “Mac and cheese is my favorite food. I took one bite of this and spit it out. It is absolutely terrible.”
At first glance, we counted more than 25 ingredients listed on the label. Plus, one serving has 27% of your daily recommended sodium intake. Instead, try making our Healthier Mac and Cheese recipe. You can’t go wrong with Greek yogurt mixed in to bring all the creaminess.
The label on these kettle-cooked plantain chips made with coconut oil lists all-natural ingredients. However, 14 chips have 6 grams of saturated fat, or 30% of your recommended daily value.
U/happycroissant said, “These are so addictive! My favorite chip at Costco.” But the reviews were mixed, as other commenters responded with descriptions ranging from “meh” to “terrible.”

Costco’s churros are finally back at the food court, but the reviews aren’t glowing. U/Aubreyfb said they were “not a fan” of the bigger, more expensive pastry. They described the new version as “half normal and half like wheat or something.”
Other members chimed in to echo the same sentiment. “They are different and they are worse,” said u/moch1. “It’s not just you.”
According to this post from u/tmiw, Costco recently rolled out a “mini” version of its All American Cake after it seemingly vanished. After another shopper spotted this, they pledged to make a stop for these at the store on their way home from work.
