Reddit has some choice thoughts on which Costco bakery items rank as the best, and many concur that the cheesecake ranks second to none.

"Cheesecake is very good," says u/starrburst42.

"Second the cheesecake," u/WIlf_Brim agrees. "My wife makes great cheesecake and this is nearly as good. Buy a plain one and add your own caramel, chocolate, fruit, whatever."

"This is probably my favorite Costco desert," u/dorianrose agrees. "Love it."

If you're worried this cake might go straight to your waist, take heart knowing that it doesn't rank as one of the 15 Unhealthiest Costco Foods.

"Love the coffeecake muffin and the vanilla chocolate chunk muffin," says u/ChicShopper. "The two best, in my opinion."

"Wanna know why the coffee cake muffin is so good?" says u/GrrreatFrostedFlakes. "It's because it's made with lots and lots of Kirkland butter. The other muffins are oil-based. And yes the vanilla muffins are good."

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns.

Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout?
