Thanksgiving might be the last thing on everybody’s mind right now, but Costco members will need to act fast if they want to ditch some of those Turkey Day scaries in favor of the chain’s new Fortune Gourmet Thanksgiving Dinner, which retails for $199.99 including shipping and handling.
This may mean having to quickly cope with the idea of leaving behind some of your family’s T-day meal traditions, such as your great-great-grandmother’s sweet potato casserole. However, the kit does come with several of the classic fixins of a Turkey Day feast, starting with a five-pound turkey breast that comes pre-brined and ready to pop right into the oven. You also get trays of macaroni and cheese, stuffing, corn, green beans, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, and dinner rolls, all of which can be stored in your freezer until you’re ready to cook on the big day. That’s not all: These kits also come with whole 8-inch apple and pumpkin pies, so all you’re really left to prepare are appetizers and drinks.
Costco’s Thanksgiving meal kit is marketed to be enough for eight people. However, there does not appear to be a limit on the number of meals one person can purchase. If your guest count is in the double digits, or you simply want to ensure that you’ll have plenty of Thanksgiving leftovers, you’re free to order as many as you’d like.
