9 Items You Will Never Be Able to Buy at Costco Again

Photo by lunopark – Shuttestock.com

Be honest, how many times have you gone shopping with a list, only to later deviate? We all do it to a certain extent!

But what happened when the item on your list, that one product you’ve been buying from a store for months if not years, is suddenly gone from the shelves!? Panic ensues! Looking for suitable alternatives can take months, your household will never be the same…

But we all have to come to terms with the fact that sometimes, no matter how much we love a product, it might disappear forever. Costco shoppers know this all too well, which is why one piece of advice I can give you is to stock up on something you can’t live without before the warehouse club decides to remove it from its stock.

Today, let’s look at 9 such items that Costco decided to stop selling so that we can say a final farewell to our favorites…

Half-sheet Cakes

The half sheet cakes that Costco used to sell were a favorite among many shoppers. Whether you were celebrating a birthday, graduation, baby, or any other event, you knew the warehouse store had a delicious cake waiting for you at the bakery counter.

Nowadays, you could purchase 10-inch round cakes instead, which are still delicious, but we still miss those half-sheet cakes and we might need some time to get over this scrumptious loss.

Our next item is in the dog house…..

  1. We wish you would have frozen yogurt as you once had. Our Costco
    now only has ice cream. Yogurt is healthier. thank you. Anne

  2. I do not like the powdered gravy mixes you have now–Do not compare to what you used to have!! Also would love those bran muffins you used to have. Our Costco–need Instant Nescafe clasico coffee. Otherwise love my store

  3. Cage-Free Eggs. Did not understand that remark. I do not purchase cage free eggs – can’t afford them. You will continue to have eggs that are not cage-free?

    1. Jacqueline McDonald

      No, they are saying they will only carry cage free eggs. No more caged eggs. They aren’t that much more.

  4. Kirkland decafe coffee has not been available for months. Are you bringing it back.
    Great coffee blend have not been able to replace with anything like it.

  5. Both my husband and I miss the Guava Nectar (Grown Right). It’s wonderful. We truely hope Costco will carry it again. Thanks,

  6. PLEASE…. PLEASE …..bring back the 1/2 sheet cakes.
    They were SO affordable and SO GOOD

  7. I hope that a “reacher” (to grab things off the floor) will be available to order on line. I have purchased about 6 from eBay, but they do not work as well as yours.

  8. Three items I miss:
    (1) Rothschilds Roasted Pineapple/Habanero Sauce.
    (2) The bakery’s Blueberry Muffins are not like they used to be. The ones I bought about 2 months ago were seriously lacking in blueberries (one muffin actually contained only ONE blueberry) and the blueberries were totally tasteless. These are the muffins that are sold as two packs of 6 (totaling 12 muffins).
    (3) This is an item from years ago, but I have never stopped thinking of how good they were: Martha Stewart’s Chicken Slab Pies (frozen).

  9. I hope the regular cans of Kirkland brand Albacore tuna is not being permanently discontinued!! Because of my arthritic hands I had to use pliers to pull the ring to open the can and once opened found mostly mushy tuna.
    I agree with Sahra Hup about the 4 bean salad.


  10. C
    Why don’t you carry carrot cake cupcakes anymore They were the best.
    Stop all the big changes to this wonderful shopping place.

  11. 2 things I miss are the Bran Muffins and the Tyson’s sausage patties, we would buy the patties about every 3months and the muffins about once a month.

  12. Really miss the 3-pack of loaf cakes sold at the holidays. They were the best and I always bought SEVERAL to keep in the freezer. PLEASE?

  13. WhAt happened to the gallon of MILO’S diet iced tea? Costco had the best buy on this & I am very thursty! Please bring it back!!!

  14. The sheet cakes were the best for decorating with a picture. One of the main reasons for having a membership since I purchased so many of them.

  15. Really miss the breakfast sausages that came in double packages also more choices of muffins and containers of large green grapes.

  16. Please bring back the albacore tuna it was so good and affordable that it makes me sad if it’s gone.


  17. From the bakery, the rosemary/Parmesan bread!!! I still dream about it. What is the rationale behind discontinuing outstanding products? And with so much consumer feedback about g egg tying them back?

  18. kathryn ehlers

    I will not buy any meat that is not guaranteed to be raised humanely! Any meat! And the seafood that is caught should be line-caught and dolphin safe.

  19. I used to be a member but can no longer purchase the 1/2 sheet cakes, Michigan tart cherry jelly, or coffee maker filters, etc.

  20. JoAnn DAntonio

    Locatelli brand Pecorino Romano cheese…have to go to BJs for it now….it is the BEST cheese.

  21. Glad that Costco can be manipulated by the large the wealthy and “activitists”. seems like the prices and good choices are disappearing. That’s OK, Walmart , Sams ,BJ’s will gladly take care of us. Thanks also to Warren Buffet,he helped do away with Kirkland Batteries, or was this just a good business decision., for the owner’s.
