    Are The New Costco Cookies N Cream Mini Cakes Worth The Hype?

    Cruising through the warehouse, I try to resist the temptations of the bakery section, which is so hard at times. I’ll purposely check for new salad kits in the produce section before visiting the baked goods section, hoping it will make the cakes and cookies less irresistible. I failed miserably on a recent trip.

    The new Costco Cookies N Cream mini cakes haunted me. They caught my eye, but I didn’t put them in the cart. And then they haunted me. I relented and went back from the checkout to grab them. 

    We’ve seen a few posts on Reddit discussing them, but we needed to try them for ourselves.  Are they any good?

    What Are Costco Mini Cakes?

    Found in the bakery section of the warehouse, Costco Mini Cakes are desserts the same size as the popular muffin, with toppings that change every few months. 

    The Costco Cookies N Cream Mini Cakes debuted in early January 2024. These chocolate cakes are topped with cookies and cream frosting and a smattering of crumbled Oreo-like cookies. 

    There was another iteration of cookies and cream cakes in the warehouse in 2021, but these are different. Those were yellow cupcakes topped with a chocolate chip cookie.

    A Costco Cookies N Cream Mini Cakes Review — Are They Any Good?

    Despite their appealing appearance, we were concerned that these desserts would be dry, which sometimes happens with the chocolate muffins. That wasn’t the case; the Costco Cookies N Cream Mini Cakes are moist and delicious!

    They have a more solid chocolate flavor than the muffins. That being said, they aren’t too sweet. There is a significant amount of frosting on top, which my little guy complained about, but that was the only minor gripe. Our table was silent as everyone was devouring their desserts.

    Mini cake is the perfect name for these Costco desserts. They are double the size of a homemade cupcake, which may be too much for some. But it wasn’t a huge issue, a few of us split them in half and then went back to eat the other half. You are getting your money’s worth as each package of six mini cakes costs $8.99. 

    We would buy Costco Cookies N Cream Mini Cakes, which are a crowd-pleasing dessert with a beautiful presentation at an excellent price.
