Why Costco's Food Court Hot Dogs Taste So Good

Costco’s $1.50 hot dog combo is so popular that Costco Chief Executive Ron Vachris shared that 200 million were sold in 2023 alone (as reported by the Seattle Times).

The ingredients make Costco's food court hot dogs taste so delicious. Most hot dogs contain fillers and additives, but Costco's Kirkland brand frankfurters do not.

Costco uses their in-house Kirkland Signature Beef Wieners in their food court, which are gluten-free with zero by-products, corn syrup, or fillers.

Costco's all-beef hot dog is also more than double the size of regular hot dogs, weighing in at a quarter-pound, or 4 ounces. That's some serious bang for your literal buck.
