Costco sells out of 27-pound mac-and-cheese bucket with 20-year shelf life
Your comfort food prayers are answered, mac and cheese lovers.
Costco has blessed us with a 27-pound “Storage Bucket” of the ooey-gooey good stuff containing 180 servings. This gluttonous golden opportunity is helpfully listed under “Emergency Kits & Supplies” on the raves on the Costco website.
Oh, and don’t worry if you’re a single person eating for one — it’s got a two-decade shelf-life.
That’s a lot of eating elbow room, thanks to the hearty folks at Chef’s Banquet, a household name in family-size freezer food circles.
Bonus: you can even fit “100 baseballs, half a bale of hay or your average 3-year-old child” in the bucket once it’s empty, according to People.
Reviews for the$89.99 item are all raves on the Costco website: “Good stuff! We bought this for our grandson. He was here the day it arrived. We opened it and made it. Very pleasantly surprised. I have made it a couple of different ways. You can’t mess it up. Have purchased it again, and will continue to use it,” says MimiO.
“I was surprised,” chimes in HealthTechSavvy. “Honestly, I was expecting something that tasted horrible. I was surprised to find out that it was very good. But, don’t pack the cheese sauce powder.”
Although it’s actually been around on the down low for a few years, this cheesy pasta product is suddenly so popular that it’s temporarily out of stock.
