Costco pulling Polish hot dog from food court for 'healthier' options...

... USA Today and other news outlets are reporting that the Polish dog is going away to make room for 'healthier' vegan and vegetarian items such as acai fruit bowls, organic burgers and a plant-based protein salad.  The $1.50 hot dog combo will remain on the menu.  If you like their Polish dog, don't wait to long to grab one more.

If the parking wasn't such a problem.....
 
My Costco shared a lot with a stand alone Albertsons.  They tore Albertsons down and made more parking spaces.  Now you can't find a spot.

I remember when no one outside of Southern California had heard of the regional specialty "acai bowl"  (and it wasn't that long ago) now they're everywhere.

Where is Regional Appropriateness when you really need it?

I think LA and Southern California is the only part of the country where the locals are completely surprised that their regionally unique specialties.... are ....regionally unique... it's only a matter of a few years before  they spread all over the country...

Speaking of Regional Appropriateness, the Wisconsin Costco locations offer a bratwurst in lieu of the Polish sausage. It's not a very good bratwurst, so we stick with the hot dog for our $1.50 cheap eats.
 
I just gave the brat another chance and consider it good enough to order again. It is a decent representation of a Wisconsin bratwurst. The only drawback is the poor mustard choices that are provided.

I would love to see the Costco hot dog with Cincinnati style chili, yellow mustard, onion and grated cheddar cheese

Costco made the news here.  They're also getting rid of the berry ice cream swirl.
 
Maybe there will be more parking spaces and according to the news, people are irate!
 
The acai bowl places are popping up around here.  I looked in one but left as it just didn't sound appetizing.
 
Pronounce acai!  It's strange.

They also got rid of the chocolate yoghurt...that acai is bitter...not my cup of tea...Our Costco says many have complained about it and the loss of chocolate yoghurt. Guess we don't have California taste buds!!

They were popping up around there 10 years ago - I remember seeing them back in 2009- see my review of OB Sub and Smoothie shop which I wrote back then.

I go in, get what I have to get, leave, and eat at home. I've never had food from there.

Shooting thyself in the foot. The Costco "dog" is the best food value in the US.

Agreed, although all the food at their court is a good value .

Well, if you're wanting to have a cheap Polish combo for lunch then you can head to Sam's Club (no membership necessary) and get your fix. They have decided to pick up Costco's slack and all their clubs will be offering a $0.99 Polish dog, starting July 23. They also have a $1.50 hot dog combo and they use Nathan's hot dogs.

Lots of people stop in just for lunch, as they do at Costco. I shop there all the time and my kids usually avail themselves of the cafe, though. I've had their buck 50 combo before and it's pretty good. I like Nathan's dogs.

You don't need a membership for Costco to buy at the food court, liquor or prescriptions.

The chili dogs and hot dogs I grew up with one the Gulf Coast and in other parts of the South were routinely topped with both ketchup and mustard atop the chili (or cheese, if you got some on top of the chili). It's how they were served, unless you asked for it some other way. I never ran across a dog with coleslaw until I saw them in places like WVa. It was never a thing farther south, as far as I know.
Here's my favourite chili dog, from the Dew Drop Inn in Mobile. Note the ingredients.

One of my favourite burgers was made at my old high school. They made up dozens and dozens of burgers, on house made buns and wrapped them in wax paper for sale (they were about .50 each). Only toppings on them was mustard and pickle. Soooooo goooood!
