Where are my chocolate lovers?!

We’re talking muffins again. This time we’re delving into double chocolatey goodness. The Costco double chocolate muffins are MUCH different than the cranberry orange ones so I feel like they deserve their own post.
If you want to eat cake for breakfast and at the same time tell yourself you’re not actually eating cake, you’re eating a muffin which is generally a breakfast food then pick some of these chocolate muffins from Costco up ASAP. I’d love to say I hate these but I don’t. I secretly really love them and have loved them since I was a little girl. Isn’t it funny how when you’re a kid you wish your Mom would let you eat all the Costco muffins because they’re so good or you try to eat 2 or 3 in a day in an attempt to gobble them up before your sibling does? Then you become an adult and its like “Oh man I should not be eating double chocolate muffins for breakfast, I’ll just have my spinach celery juice thank you”.
These muffins have a dark chocolate, rich flavor and are packed full of extra chocolate chips to increase the overall chocolatey deliciousness. The muffin has a texture similar to a moderately dense cake. Although they’re packed full of chocolate they’re not overly artificially sweet. The chocolate flavor is more like a dark chocolate rather than a milk chocolate. The Costco Kirkland Signature Chocolate Muffins are also quite moist. If you want to imagine the taste, picture eating a dense, moist, dark chocolate cake minus the icing. These do dry out if you leave them out so I recommend freezing them right away if you're not going to eat them all!
The cost of the muffins is $3.99 Canadian for 6 muffins or two packages for $7.00 Canadian. Pretty reasonable for six muffins that are the size of my face.
When it comes to the nutrition info for the Costco Kirkland Signature Double Chocolate Muffins, ignorance is bliss. There's definitely some preservatives and unhealthy ingredients in these. Sugar is the first ingredients so as to be expected these are loaded with fat and sugar.
Buying these muffins is convenient for a bunch of reasons, they freeze well, you can eat them any time of day and both kids and adults love them. Also I think it’s way easier to buy the jumbo sized muffins than to bake them, I have never even seen muffin cups this size before in the store, have you?
I’d love to eat these regularly but realistically I’ll purchase them maybe once a year as a treat. However if I had kids I’d probably purchase them more often as I used to look forward to these as a kid and kids seem to love them.
What are you feelings on having double chocolate muffins for breakfast?
