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.
