Social media users have been reviewing the ‘all butter’ cookie that has both bittersweet and semisweet chocolate
Users on one Reddit thread suggested having a game plan if you’re going to purchase the cookie, while others said it gave them a stomach ache.
‘I want to know why they decided to make it so big. I feel the price and novelty are outweighed by the tummy ache after,’ said one user.
Another poster said, ‘750 calories in one item. No buzz AND a stomach ache?! Worst deal ever!’
On TikTok, Costco customers recorded their experience purchasing the cookie and recording a taste test.
An account called Kuya Can Eat said, ‘They serve it warm, which is good in the beginning, but once it cools down, it’s so hard.’
‘I don’t like my cookies too crispy. Average. 5 out of 10.’
Another account call Eats by Rachel said, ‘It’s humongous for one, and it’s also served warm which is really nice’.
She said: ‘It looks really good, you can see the chocolate chunks in there, they’re gooey and melty. They’re also 750 calories each, so it’s kind of like a whole meal in one cookie.
‘Not super impressive or anything like that. Taste like your classic chocolate chip cookie. Would I run to get it? For $2.49 maybe, but nothing super crazy. I think you could bake something better at home.’
Another account called said, ‘It’s very heavy you can see, this is about four ounces. That’s a big cookie. This is the type of cookie somebody like me could eat for lunch.’
One user called Alodie purchased two cookies and an ice cream from the food court and turned them into an ice cream sandwich.
The cookies are just one of several changes Costco is rolling out this year.
Staff at a warehouse in Washington – near its HQ – have started scanning shoppers’ cards before they enter.
That pulls up a photo of the cardholder on a screen, which the worker at the entrance can compare with the person standing in front of them.

Normally shoppers simply flash their card at that employee, who may or may not choose to scrutinize the small photo printed on it.
The new system is thought to be a trial ahead of a potential broader rollout.
Costco introduced a new banana nut loaf to its famous bakery section.
The 2-pound loaf of banana bread – topped with walnuts – costs just $6.99 and made it into warehouses across the U.S. this month.
The item is entirely new – and not to be confused with the original banana pecan loaf.
