There are currently several items Costco members are obsessing over, which are consequently flying off the warehouse's industrial-sized shelves faster than you can say, "Happy Holidays!" Here's what's popular in the lead-up to Christmas.

The bakery recently brought back its much-loved pack of 44 Holiday Cookies complete with five distinct flavors including Powdered Brownie Walnut, Lemon Shortbread, Toffee Sandy, Coconut Almond Chocolate, and Holiday Candy Cookies.

An overwhelming amount of social media accounts swiftly spread the word and people have expressed that they can't get enough of the sweet new arrival.

Kinder's Teriyaki Marinade with Sesame & Ginger

If this marinade had ears they would certainly be ringing. People have been talking about the sauce and voicing their admiration all over social media. The Organic Teriyaki Marinade with Sesame & Ginger comes in a sizable 30-ounce bottle at Costco. Similar to other Kinder's sauces, it is non-GMO and contains no high-fructose corn syrup—a big plus for today's more eco-friendly and health-conscious consumers.

Costco account @costcohotfinds shared that the sauce is "incredible" and that it's "perfect as a marinade and as a sauce for sandwiches and stir-fry." Others add that they've used it for foods such as meatballs, air-fried chicken tenders, and even vegetables—proving its versatility.

But, the best part about the Kinder's marinade and likely a major reason for its recent surge in popularity? It's on sale at all Costco locations for $2 off until Dec. 24!


Mike & Jen's Cocoa Mix

Mike & Jen's Cocoa Mix is one of Costco's hottest new products . . . literally. The family-owned brand just recently started selling at warehouses in its home state of Minnesota and the response from shoppers has been overwhelmingly positive.

According to a post on the brand's Facebook page, the hot cocoa flew off the shelves, selling out much quicker than originally expected. In the comments, fans of the brand showed their support and gushed about the chocolatey goodness. "Awesome but not surprising at all! Your hot cocoa is delicious!" one commenter Michelle Strop wrote.

Based on this initial success, the Mike & Jen's brand may be spreading to more Costco's across the country very soon.


Birdrock Home Acacia Hardwood Grazing Board

Visually-appealing charcuterie and food boards have been a hot topic all year long and are still very much on trend. It all starts with a beautiful and sleek slate of wood, and in the Costco community, the current product of choice is the Acacia Hardwood Grazing Board from Birdrock Home. The board is a whopping 2.5 feet long and currently costs $19.99.

One shopper user recently announced on Facebook that she was finally able to find one at her local warehouse and other commenters agreed that the product has been a tricky one to locate as of late. "I immediately snatched it up when I saw it," shared another. "I knew it wasn't going to last in store for very long!" Close to 200 other comments followed with even more love for the grazing board as well as pictures of the colorful spreads shoppers have created with it.

Lobster Tail Skewers

Snow crab has been in low supply this year, so Costco members are turning to lobster instead. Shoppers have been loving these Lobster Tail Skewers from Ocean Pier, which come in a pack of four and are currently priced at $17.89.

Instagram account @costco_doesitagain shares, "Lobster for dinner is usually a luxury but with Ocean Pier Inc's incredible Split Lobster Tail Skewers, you can have a luxurious and delicious meal in the comfort of your own kitchen! These skewers couldn't be easier to bake and, once they're ready for eating, the lobster shell pops off with ease."

The skewers are made with MSC-certified sustainable seafood and also come with a buttered lemon pepper glaze–yum! While you're in the seafood aisle, check out the Wild Cooked Cold Water Lobster Claws as well, shared by @costcolove. They're going for $15.99 per pound!


Hamilton Beach Upright Freezer

It seems that many people are in need of extra freezer space this holiday season. Hamilton Beach Upright Freezers with seven drawers for added storage have been selling out quickly at Costco locations, according to avid shoppers.

Instagrammer @costcoguide posted a video at a local warehouse where the freezers were back in stock this week, but only four appeared to be available on the floor. One user replied, "If you find one buy one. These go so fast," but also shared that the price seems to have gone up—currently at $429.99. Other commenters shared that they have never spotted the product at their local Costcos in areas such as Los Angeles, Dallas, and on the East Coast, but wished they were available to them as well.

For the lucky few who have been able to purchase one of the freezers, it's been nothing but praise for the scarce kitchen appliance.

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. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year.

Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That! "Anything that's substantially less [than the 7.4% increase] is a deal," said Lempert. "When you

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. 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? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
