3 Popular Items at Costco That Seem to Be Inflation-Proof
Hot Dog & Soda Combo
Costco's CFO, Richard Galanti, assured that the $1.50 hot dog and Coke combination would never change.
He said the company's gas and travel profit margins can offset food court losses. The $1.50 combo was launched in the 1980s and hasn't changed since.
Reddit Costco consumers have been debating the $5.99 pumpkin pie. Some point out that the pie cost $6.99 last year.
This cheap pie makes a great snack. "At $6, if you slice it 8-pieces, that's 75 a slice," comments u/ADHDCuriosity. "A $1 snack!"
This is not the organic variety, which is more expensive, so check the label before purchasing a pie from Costco's bakery area.
According to the Consumer Price Index, chicken prices have risen 16.4% countrywide, and experts believe this will continue owing to the avian flu epidemic.
Despite growing chicken costs, Costco, Sam's Club, and BJ's keep rotisserie chickens around $5.
