Costco is cutting the Polish hot dog from the menu in its food courts across the United States.
The Polish dog is being cut to make room for more healthy and vegan options, such as açai fruit bowls and organic burgers.
Many customers are furious that they will no longer be able to purchase the menu item.

Costco is cutting one of customers’ favorite options from the menu in its food courts.

The retailer is taking the Polish hot dog off the menu to make way for new items, The Seattle Times reports. Locations will be deeply discounting the Polish dog in an effort to make room for new, healthy menu items such as açai fruit bowls and organic burgers.

Costco is well-known for its inexpensive but surprisingly tasty food court. However, when the retailer makes adjustments to the menu, there is bound to be backlash.

Customers are not pleased with the fact that the Polish hot dog — a variation on Costco’s wildly popular classic hot dog, which will remain on the menu — will no longer be available.

Many have taken to social media to express a mix of rage and disappointment.

“Please, PLEASE reconsider putting the polish dogs back on the menu!! They have way more flavor and are better than the hot dogs and are the only thing that makes the idea of an hour shopping with toddlers seem bearable!!” one person commented on Costco’s Facebook page.

“Bring back the polish dog, please,” commented another. “That’s the only thing I order from the food court.”

A third commented: “What are you thinking by taking away the polish dog! Bring it back because you now have a lot of unhappy customers with this bad decision!”

The loss of the Polish dog has been some time coming. California locations reportedly stopped selling the menu item earlier this year.

And, Hawaiian Costco shoppers had already started a petition to bring back the Polish dog months ago.

“LET THE DOGS OUT OF THE FREEZER – make the Polish Dog again part of the Costco Food Court selection in Hawai’i,” the petition reads. “We will pay more – charge us $2.50.”

Costco has been expanding the healthy and vegan food options available at its food court, something that other customers are celebrating on social media.

“Thank you for adding vegan foods,” one person wrote on Costco’s Facebook. “It is much appreciated!”
