You've all heard of the "meet cute" before—Urban Dictionary's definition of the romantic saying is "in which two individuals are brought together in some unlikely, zany, destined-to-fall-in-love-and-be-together-forever sort of way." They usually happen in cute coffee shops, libraries, and the streets of New York City à la romantic comedies—but for couple Jessica and Brandon, their meet cute just so happened to occur in the mac and cheese aisle of their local Costco.
Jessica was shopping at the Waipahu Costco in Hawaii with her roommate, deciding—out loud, I might add—whether she should buy some bulk mac and cheese when along came Brandon. She was recording a story for her Instagram, saying how she wishes mac and cheese was good for you (I mean, don't we all?).
After Jessica finished recording her Insta video, Brandon approached her, saying, “It’s good for you. It’s cheese—and it’s Costco.” And the rest, as they say, was history.
A month after they actually tied the knot, the Costco couple decided to pay tribute to the place where they first met with a photoshoot in the exact aisle their exchange took place—mac and cheese and all.
“We didn’t really think we were going to do it, and we did,” Jessica told Costco. “By the time we got to the aisle, there were different employees walking by congratulating us. Customers were shopping and laughing, taking pictures. Everyone was super nice."
The comments in Costco's now viral Facebook post consist of nothing but love for the married couple—and of course, the bulk retailer brand itself.
"My husband and I love Costco!" one Facebook commenter wrote. "Many years of happiness to this couple. A love that’s built on food can never fail! ❤️❤️."
Maybe some of us should be frequenting the mac and cheese aisle at Costco more often—we just might find ourselves a forever partner.
