Costco's Premade Cheese Board Is A Total Steal

You know that things are getting serious in the Redditverse when you've got more than 500 upvotes. Costco's new premade cheese board has 891 and counting. Says one Redditor (and presumptive Costco employee), "I think most Costcos are gonna get it. I remember my supervisor saying it gonna be annoying to make." That may be true, @Gracedboss97, but we'll all love you for putting in the effort. 

You are probably already a fan of other Costco hits, but the clear problem with their classic pumpkin pie or spit-roasted rotisserie chicken is that they're occasion-specific. A mouth-watering combination of good cheese, crackers, nuts, jam, and fruits, on the other hand? Eat it for breakfast. Munch on it as a mid-morning snack to impress your office colleagues. Take it along with you to picnic at the park. Serve it up to your in-laws as hors d'oeuvres to prove just how sophisticated you really are. 

How much does Costco's premade cheese board cost?

Or, alternatively, use you can use this cheese board as an excuse for some one-on-one time with your special someone. Redditor @Walkinghorse did and has only good things to say: "Perfect date night nosh with the husband. The cheese is seriously delicious (heck of a deal $ wise) and I have to say that Costco has been hitting it out of the park this year with the quality of grapes and strawberries. Highly recommend!"

Costco's new cheese board prices at $7.99 a pound, which means each container will cost you just about $20.00. Before gasping in shock at the price tag, consider the fact that Costco is saving you the expense involved in bigger, more expensive blocks of cheese, entire packages of fruit and crackers and nuts, and a jar of jam, all of which may or may not end up being unused leftovers wasting away in your fridge.   

What's in Costco's premade cheese board?

What, exactly, is in this pre-packaged shareable experience? The only thing missing from it is the red (or, if you prefer, white) wine. Instagrammer @costco_empties found one at their local Costco on August 12, 2020, and reported strawberries (we count five), red grapes, almonds, fig jam, double creme brie, two kinds of hard cheeses (which Redditor @PristineNoodles claims they rotate), and crackers. "Are those Croccantini crackers? Those are worth the price of admission," speculates Redditor @AGooDone. 

While your price may vary based on how much your cheese board actually weighs, it's still a great deal to grab one, and looks to have an amazing variety of delectable goods included, especially if you have an event to get to where a bring-along dish is required, or it simply looks too good to pass up. We can't tell exactly what the board comes with from the picture, but there's one way to find out.
