Say it ain’t so, Costco! Are there really not going to be Churros in the Costco food court anymore? I’m really hoping that this isn’t true because I love the churros. A churro is as close as you can get to a donut at Costco and with that delicious cinnamon-sugar coating they are the perfect after shopping treat. It would only be better if Costco had hot chocolate in their food courts, but that is a topic for another post.
I received an email recently from a fellow Costco shopper and churro lover about the churros vanishing from her Costco food court. It seems that the churros will soon be a thing of the past and no longer available in the food court at all. She tried to order one but they were out and wouldn’t be getting more. And that is when she found out the dreadful news of the churro’s demise. According to the worker in the food court, Costco is phasing out the churro because they are too costly as a result of additional labor needed to prepare them and the longer cooking time. If they can keep the cost of a hot dog and soda at $1.50 for all these years, can’t they figure out how to revolutionize the churro cooking process to be more cost effective?
I’m so sad to hear about the possibility of Costco ditching the churros, as is the person that wrote me the email; I think she used the word “devastated”. Are there still churros available at the Costco food court near you? Can any of you readers that are also Costco employees confirm, or better yet refute, this information about Costco phasing out the churros?
