Speaking of Hot Dogs…

Costco shoppers get ready for a change at the food court. According to the Seattle Times, the retail giant based in Issaquah, Washington, is revamping the menu to appeal to more health-conscious shoppers. Chief executive, Craig Jelinek mentioned healthier options including açai fruit bowls, organic burgers (which some stores began selling last summer) and a plant-based protein salad, listed as an “Al Pastor Salad.”

The Polish hot dog is going away at many Costco stores in the Seattle area and elsewhere to make room for new items. But rest easy: the original all-beef hot dog combo — sold for $1.50 with a soda — is not going away.
