One of our many national nightmares is over.

A lot has changed over the past year, but one thing's for sure: our love for Costco hasn't waned despite the obstacles the pandemic has put in our path. The big box retailer remains the go-to location for all manner of giant foods, cheap wines, and, soon enough, even Covid-19 vaccine doses.

Now, much to the delight of anyone who loves baked goods or just a good bulk buy, Costco's made the wise decision to bring back a big-time favorite: their bakery's "Pull-A-Part" cinnamon rolls. That's according to compelling Instagram evidence from @Costcobuys, one of the leading figures in the booming Costco-themed social media sphere. 

Apparently, this bakery fave was missing from Costco for an indeterminate period of time. That meant that many Costco members were missing out on the simple joy of pulling apart cinnamon rolls that look to be slathered in a whole bunch of icing on top. The comments on @Costcobuys' post are replete with obsessed fans who welcome the return, with at least one commenter deploying reverse psychology and describing them as "horrible" in order to hoard more for themselves. 

And because this is still Costco — and Costco remains undefeated when it comes to bang for your buck — it looks like 12 pullable pieces of cinnamon-coated, frosted goodness will only set you back $6.99. So that and a bottle of rosé from K Vintners will only set you back $17, which sounds like a pretty good deal with big plans to brunch from home.  

So while you're waiting for your 65-plus year-old relative to (maybe) get vaccinated at Costco, you might as well browse the baked goods section and pick this pull-a-part beauty up. Heck, buy a few. Because if its hiatus from Costco tells us anything, you can't be too sure that something this good will last forever.
