I am not generally a hot dog enthusiast. I prefer hamburgers at a cookout. My high school chemistry teacher once gave our class a detailed analysis of just exactly what goes into the production of hot dogs – right before lunch, I might add - that soured me on said cuisine for some time (my advanced age and moments of desperate hunger have softened my stance over the years). But. Costco.
I simply can’t pass up the deal of a refillable soda and a dog that you can cover in ketchup, mustard, relish, and onions. What’s so special you ask? It costs $1.50. And it has since 1986. I appreciate that attention to value. In order to maintain that price, they’ve taken lots of measures, including producing the hot dogs themselves. That’s right, it’s a proprietary dog.
In fact, the entire Costco food court is a sea of guilty pleasures, what with the ginormous slices of pizza and the churros. Oh, the churros. That’s a subject for another post one day.
So what’s your shopping food court nosh of choice?
