In case you're unfamiliar with this dreamy Costco creation, the pumpkin spice loaf is a pumpkin-flavored cakey bread with cream cheese frosting and white chocolate shavings. It also costs just $7.99, which is a steal considering the loaf weighs more than two pounds.

According to Costco shoppers on Reddit, the loaf is "very moist [and] very tasty." Other Reddit users note that the pumpkin spice loaf is delicious when heated in the microwave for about 10 seconds. (On the other hand, 15 seconds will totally melt the frosting, so you might want to keep that in mind.) Something tells us a warm slice of pumpkin spice loaf would be amazing with coffee or hot apple cider.


How to serve pumpkin spice loaf:

Aside from heating up slices of pumpkin spice loaf, here are other mouthwatering ways to enjoy the treat:


  • Spread pumpkin butter, nut butter, or apple butter on a slice
  • Sprinkle chopped nuts onto the frosting
  • Add a drizzle of caramel sauce or maple syrup
  • Add chocolate chips or shavings
  • Sprinkle ground cinnamon or nutmeg on top

The possibilities are wonderfully endless, to say the least.

In addition to the beloved pumpkin spice loaf, other seasonal items have returned to Costco. The warehouse is now selling its pumpkin streusel muffins and pumpkin pie. The latter costs just $5.99, so you can be sure we'll picking one up for our fall gatherings.
