Costco Is Bringing Chopped Onions Back To The
Food Court
By David Tran
Apart from its aisles of bulk selections, Costco is arguably most recognizable for its food court, with pizza slices, hot dogs, ice cream sundaes, and churros.
Costco's $1.50 hot dog and soda combo is an affordable option beloved by customers, and the retailer is now bringing back chopped onions to add to hot dogs.
A memo posted at a Pacific Northwest Costco location indicates that diced onions will be brought back in individually portioned cups, according to an April 30 Reddit post.
For a long time, shoppers could add unlimited toppings, including chopped onions and sauerkraut, to their hot dogs at a condiment station — before Costco removed the stations.
While it's unclear when and where the chopped onions will return, many Costco shoppers applauded the news on social media, while others demanded sauerkraut.
Some commenters mourned the loss of the hand-cranked onion and sauerkraut dispensers Costco's food courts once had, asking why the warehouse isn't reinstalling them.
The retailer reportedly removed the topping stations from its food courts amid the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Yahoo! Life.
