Costco is now stocking giant 2-pound tiramisu cakes that are the size of a "human arm"
For food fans who resent having to do normal grocery shopping, Costco really is the greatest place on the planet. Name another store where you can purchase a 23-pound bucket of mac and cheese and $600 wagyu steaks at the same time. You can’t. However, even by Costco’s lofty standards of awesomeness, a discovery from revered Instagram account @Costcobuys may well help take their reputation to the next level.
According to the savvy influencer, shoppers can now get their hands on an enormous 38-oz tiramisu bar cake. Layered with cream, coffee and sponge, as well a dusting of chocolate powder, the massive dessert is estimated to be about the length of a human arm by reporters at Delish, and by the looks of things, could be sturdy enough to construct a small house. Italian pudding fans - this is your lucky day.
In a caption accompanying the original arresting photo, @Costcobuys revealed a little more about the giant dish. As they put it:
“Coffee, chocolate, and cake all in one? This Tiramasu Bar Cake is like a little slice of Italy right in Costco! 😋 This also happens to be one of my Costco bakery favorites! 😍 ($15.99)”
In this case, “little slice” may be a little tongue-in-cheek.

Understandably, news that there may be a giant tiramisu in a store near you could cause something of a coffee-inspired stampede. However, if you want to avoid the possible hordes of ravenous sweet-toothed shoppers, there is an alternative solution. The pudding is also available for home delivery via Instacart - meaning that you won’t even have to leave the house to indulge.
