Since they were first stocked on Costco shelves in 1987, these pumpkin pies have had a devoted following. Costco sells more than six million of them every year — and it's truly not hard to see why.

For starters, the pies are absolutely delicious, based on a recipe by Costco's vice president of bakery operations, Sue McConnaha. The treats are also absolutely massive, weighing a whopping 58 ounces — that's more than 3.5 pounds!

Plus, the pies are surprisingly affordable. Inflation hasn't touched these desserts as the price has remained the same as last year: only $5.99.

Truly, Costco has absolutely nailed the humble pumpkin pie. In fact, there's even a Facebook group dedicated to the autumnal classic with over 2,300 members.

"Maybe I won't eat the whole thing in a single sitting this time," commented Donnie Caron on a post announcing the pie's arrival.

(If you don't eat the pie in a single sitting, make sure you refrigerate any leftovers — the pies are preservative-free.)

The pies have also gone viral on Instagram. A video by @costcobuys showing off the famous product racked up more than 7,000 likes in a single day.

So don't mind us, we'll just be making sure we have one of these in our fridge from now until Thanksgiving.
