Got a craving for something cold and delicious? Look no further than Costco, which has some of the best frozen desserts out there. You’re not going to find forty flavors of ice cream, but what they do have will surely satisfy your sweet tooth. And since you’re buying in bulk, stocking up on frozen treats from Costco means that you’ll always have enough for sudden sleepovers (you know, when your kid unexpectedly and without any warning invites 7 of her closest friends over for a hangout), or for when the family decides to do a big BBQ — at your house.
No matter what type of dessert floats your boat, most people probably prefer a cooler treat during the hot summer months. After all, who wants to turn on an oven to bake a cake or a batch of brownies during a heat wave? Personally, perspiring while eating just isn’t my thing. That’s why I'm loving the small but mighty selection of frozen fabulosity at Costco. Even better: All of the 14 treats featured below are affordably priced ($15 and under) and you'll still probably have some leftovers. Which may or may not be a bad thing, depending on how you look at it.
