If you frequent Costco (get a membership here), you may be making a big mistake. It’s easy to get into a routine, hit the same spots in the store every time, and think you’re gaming the system by sticking to your list and staying focused. Okay, think again. If you shop logically, responsibly, and maturely at Costco, then you’re probably missing out on some of their best products. So if you haven’t visited the freezer aisle full of sweet treats in a while, you need to add it to your list because Costco just started selling a pack of Cookie Monster ice cream bars that you won’t want your freezer to be without.
What the heck is a Cookie Monster ice cream bar? Luckily, no furry puppets were harmed in the making of these frozen ice cream bars made by Afters Ice Cream. The company is known for its gourmet flavors and Cookie Monster is no exception. Each bar offers blue Madagascar vanilla ice cream that is filled with chocolate chip cookies, crushed Oreo cookies, and chocolate fondue. The ice cream is then dipped in chocolate and the bars are frozen.
Costco currently sells Afters Cookie Monster Ice Cream Bars in a 10-pack that retails for $14.99 in the store. That’s a lot less than what you’d pay at an ice cream shop. What’s more, the reviews for these sweet treats are quite positive. “Finally found them,” said one excited shopper. “They are much better than I expected!!!”
What if you don’t live near a Costco? Turns out you can buy a 4 pack of Afters Ice Cream Pints on Goldbelly. It’s a bit of a splurge, but the flavors sound honest to death. We’re talking Dark Matter Brown Dough Ice Cream filled with fudge chunks and chocolate swirls, Salted Oreo Cookies and Cream Ice Cream, Trippy Tea Party Ice with Jasmine Milk Tea and Mochi Boba, and more. You can choose four flavors to include in the package, and yes, they have Cookie Monster, so you can satisfy a new craving you didn’t know you had, even if there’s no Costco nearby.
It might be fall and you might have a Costco membership mostly to save on a big pack of paper towels, but let yourself relax a little. Celebrate fall in the most whimsical way you can: eating blue ice cream filled with cookies while watching the leaves fall outside.
