Costco sells out of its 27-lb buckets of mac and cheese with 20-year shelf life


SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – No, you aren’t the only one who really loves Costco macaroni and cheese. 

Costco fanatics and mac-and-cheese lovers know all about Costco’s 27-pound bucket of the cheesy dish, which reportedly contains 180 servings. 

Don’t believe us? It’s listed under the “Emergency Kits & Supplies” section on the Costco website, along with other “emergency food” such as freeze dried breakfast skillets and lasagna with meat sauce. 

Not to worry about the expiration date here — it’s got a two-decade shelf life! 

So whether you’re gearing up for the apocalypse or that impending mac-and-cheese shortage, you’re covered.

If you need a comparison of just how much you can fit in this bucket, imagine “100 baseballs, half a bale of hay, your average 3-year-old child,” according to People. 

The mac-and-cheese bucket will set you back $89.99, but according to reviews online, you won’t be disappointed. 

Right now according to the mac-and-cheese bucket  is temporarily out of stock. 

We’ve reached out to Costco officials and will let you know if/when they plan on restocking. 

Until then, Kraft it is!
