How is it February already? While we can't answer that mind-boggling question, we can tell you this: Valentine's Day will be here in a blink.

And whether your plans involve a sinfully romantic Southern escape or hanging at home with a gaggle of girlfriends, adding heart-shaped macarons to the equation is never a bad idea.

Thanks to a tip from @CostcoInsider on Instagram, we learned that the typically expensive meringue pastries can be purchased for a steal this Valentine's Day season at the bulk retailer. "Impress your significant other with these heart shaped Le Chic Patissier Macarons in Strawberry-Vanilla and Raspberry," the post reads of the recent Costco find, adding that the price was $12.49 for a box of 25, though prices and availability may vary.  

According to Le Chic Pâtissier's website their heart-shaped sandwich features two almond cookies with ganache inside. The company also makes stroopwafels, cookies, crêpes, tartlets, and more.
