Keep Reading To Learn About Some Of The Things You Might Want To Avoid Buying At Costco The Next Time You Go Shopping.

Okami Sushi Party Trays

The Quality Of Costco’s Freshly Made Sushi Has Been Debated From The Store’s Inception. Some Of The Club’s Members Are Absolutely Dying To Get Their Hands On It, While Others Aren’t Crazy About The Stuff And Hope It Never Makes It To Their Warehouse.

Still, That’s Not The End Of The Sushi Problems. Club Members Have Voiced Similar Displeasure With Okami Sushi Party Trays, Which Can Also Be Purchased At Costco.

Recently, It Was Posted On Reddit That The $3.97 Trays Containing 25 Individual Pieces Were Available.

Almost 200 People Shared Their Thoughts, With Many Expressing Reluctance To Try “Clearance” Or “Discount” Sushi While Others Harshly Criticized Its Taste.

One Commenter On Reddit Compared It To Chewing Soft Plastic Doused In Soy Sauce. The Other Participant Stated:

“One Of The Things I Like Most About Shopping At Costco Is That The Majority Of Their Products Are Of High Quality. Unfortunately, It’s All Rubbish.”

Jones Dairy Farm Uncured Canadian Bacon

Jones Dairy Farm, The Producer Of The All Natural Uncured Canadian Bacon, Issued An Apology Letter To All Costco Members Who Had Purchased The Product After Receiving An Overwhelming Number Of Complaints About It.

A User On Reddit Uploaded A Scanned Version Of The Letter They Had Received.

The Statement Read, “We Have Identified A Quality Issue That May Result In The Product Having A Slimy Appearance.”

“There Is No Danger To Your Health From Ingesting This Product, And Food Safety Concerns Are Unwarranted.

However, Jones Dairy Farm And Costco Both Agree That This Quality Issue Is Unacceptable.”

Many Recent Batches Of The Meat, As Many Commenters Confirmed, Were Found To Have A Slimy Film.

Anyone Who Bought The Potentially Contaminated Item Can Get A Costco Gift Card As Compensation, Per The Letter.

Chicken Bake

What Happened To The Quality And Quantity Of The Famous Chicken Bake? There Have Been Recent Reports That The Item’s Popularity In The Food Court Has Declined Because Of The Pandemic.

Several Previous Purchasers Complained That The Most Recent Revision Was Tasteless, Contained Significantly Less Chicken, And Was Much Smaller In Size For The Same Or Higher Price.

A User Complained, “The Last Couple I Had Barely Had Any Chicken At All; It’s Basically Just An Expensive Baguette With A Thin Tube Of Salted Cheese Inside.”

It’s Not The First Time Customers Have Complained About The Food Court At Costco; In The Past, They’ve Also Questioned The Quality Of Previously Lauded Items Like The Pizza And Hot Dog Sold There.

My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream

Costco’s Boxes Of My Mochi Ice Cream, Like Kirkland Brand Hard-Boiled Eggs, Have Sparked An Intense Discussion On Reddit, With Over 200 Comments Posted So Far.

In One Camp Are The Fans Of The Mochi Variety, Which Comes In Strawberry, Vanilla Bean, And Mango Flavors And Is Sure To Please Any Sweet Tooth.

Other People, However, Were Not As Impressed.

The Mochi’s Flavor And Texture Were Panned, And The Word “Horrible” Was Used Frequently In The Thread.

Some Users Have Commented On How The Frozen Treat Tastes Like Burnt Dirt. Ouch!

Global Gourmet Hot Sauce Collection

Apparently, Costco’s Global Gourmet Hot Sauce Collection Doesn’t Believe That Variety Is The Spice Of Life. The 12 Different Hot Sauces Range From New Orleans Bourbon Hot Sauce To Africa Cayenne Hot Sauce.

A Recent Thread On Reddit, However, Claims That None Of The 12 Has Sufficient Flavor Or Heat.

“No One Who Enjoys Spicy Foods Would Want To Buy This Or Receive It As A Gift. Avoid, “Just One Reply That Was Read And Had Over 200 +1s. There Were Those Who Also Found The Sauces To Be Of Poor Quality And Overly Vinegary In Taste.

Kirkland Organic Hard-Boiled Eggs

A Disapproving Post By U/Simpleout On Reddit About Costco’s Kirkland Brand Organic Hard-Boiled Eggs Received More Than 400 Upvotes. Those Hard-Boiled Eggs Taste Weird And Are Pretty Gross, The Post Said.

Despite The Initial Enthusiasm, Commenters Showed A Clear Divide: Some Shoppers Adored The Costco Product, While Others Were Vehemently Opposed.

“These Are Something I’ve Gotten Before, And They Always Seem To Have A Strange Flavor To Me. One User Said, “It’s Almost Like I Can Taste The Plastic,” While Another Said, “I Eat The Heck Out Of These And Have Not Had Any Issues.”

Maybe You Got A Batch That Was Improperly Stored.” Some People, Instead Of Reading About Both Sides Of The Argument, Went Straight To The Tips On How To Boil Eggs At Home.


To The List Of Complaints About Costco’s Produce Section, One Reddit User Posted Photos Of Mold Growing On Avocados They Had Just Purchased. Ugh, I’m Going To Have To Return This And Get My Money Back, They Wrote.

According To The Comments, This Is Not An Isolated Case, And Costco’s Avocado Quality Has Been Declining For Some Time.

Another Thread That Began As An Announcement Of A Price Drop For Avocados At Costco Quickly Devolved Into A Scathing Criticism Of The Product.

There Were A Lot Of Complaints About How Rotten The Fruit Was Or How It Never Got Soft Enough To Eat.

The Mexican Avocados On Sale Were Widely Considered To Be Of Higher Quality Than Their Peruvian Counterparts.

Potatoes And Other Produce

One Reddit User Reported That Two Weeks After Buying A Bag Of Russet Potatoes From Costco, The Potatoes Had Already Begun To Go Bad, Despite The Fact That The Bag Itself Had A Shelf Life Of Up To Five Weeks.

Others Chimed In To Relay Similar Stories, With The Caveat That This Was Not Limited To Potatoes Alone.

Strawberries, Oranges, Bananas, And Tomatoes, Among Other Items, Were Reportedly Also Subpar And Spoiled After Being Purchased From The Megastore In Question.
