SALT LAKE CITY — Mac and cheese fans, rejoice! Costco is selling a 27-pound bucket of macaroni and cheese that will last for 20 years, USA Today reported.
The problem: The bucket sold out (briefly) less than 24 hours after People magazine first reported on the product. But it appears the bucket is available for sale again.
The Chef Banquet Macaroni & Cheese Storage Bucket was listed as “out of stock” on Costco’s official website, which you can see in the photo below.

“Also, you’re making quite the investment as the product will last a long time — two decades in fact,” according to People.
By the numbers: It’s no surprise this product sold quickly — people love their mac and cheese. In 2016, one poll found mac and cheese more popular than Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton becoming president.
Flashback: The news came after Costco made headlines for selling a 6.6-pound tub of Nutella for $21.99, according to the company’s website.
The tub is available online and in stores.
Costco is also selling Nutella in 26.5-ounce, 33.5-ounce and 1.5-ounce jars.
Costco will charge an additional $3 for deliveries.
“If you follow the two tablespoon serving size, you’re looking at 81 servings. That’s sure to last even the most Nutella-obsessed consumer a good while, and I’m sure it’s great for families with tons of kids wolfing down the stuff,” Delish reported.
Other places: Costco isn’t the only retailer to sell the large tubs of Nutella. Apparently, you can buy them at the Webstaurant Store for the same price.
You can buy them at Mercato for $59.95 and Cerini Coffee & Gifts for $45.
The cheapest option is $15 at Blair Candy — though, not surprisingly, the item is now out of stock there.
