COSTCO Stops Selling Half-Sheet Cakes

FIRST IT WAS THE FREE FOOD SAMPLES, NOW COSTCO IS ELIMINATING ITS ICONIC HALF-SHEET CAKES BECAUSE OF THE PANDEMIC

(CNN) – The pandemic is causing a lot of turmoil in the retail industry and the latest victim is COSTCO’s famous sheet cakes.

The big box membership club has eliminated the iconic half-sheet cakes that have been the centerpiece of graduation and birthday parties.

COSTCO quietly stopped selling the $20.00 half-sheet cakes across its US stores over the past month.

Instead, the COSTCO bakery is pointing customers toward its 10-inch round cakes as a substitute.

The decision also coincides with a recommendation from health experts to avoid large gatherings in light of COVID-19.

A half-sheet cake feeds around 50 people, while the 10-inch round cakes feed around a dozen.
