The New York Post: This tub of macaroni and cheese from Costco has a 20-year shelf life

Costco has answered the prayers of devotees of that most comforting of all comfort foods with a nearly 24-pound “storage bucket” of macaroni and cheese containing 180 servings.

This gluttonous golden opportunity is helpfully listed under “Emergency Kits & Supplies” on the Costco COST, -0.06% website.

And don’t worry about how long it’ll take to polish it off if you’re eating for one — it’s got a two-decade shelf life.

That’s a lot of eating elbow room, thanks to the hearty folks at Chef’s Banquet, a household name in family-size freezer food circles.

Bonus: You can fit “100 baseballs, half a bale of hay or your average 3-year-old child” in the bucket once it’s empty, according to People magazine.

The jumbo mac-and-cheese offering’s manufacturer, Chef’s Banquet, is a household name in family-size-frozen-food circles.

Online reviews of the $89.99 item are all raves: “Good stuff! We bought this for our grandson. He was here the day it arrived. We opened it and made it. Very pleasantly surprised. I have made it a couple of different ways. You can’t mess it up. Have purchased it again, and will continue to use it,” says MimiO.

“I was surprised,” chimes in HealthTechSavvy. “Honestly, I was expecting something that tasted horrible. I was surprised to find out that it was very good. But, don’t pack the cheese sauce powder.”

Although it’s actually been around on the down-low for a few years, this cheesy pasta product is suddenly so popular that it’s temporarily out of stock.
