Costco Has a Bizarre New Food Court Hack That Is Taking the Internet By Storm

Costco aficionados can be an inventive bunch. Not long ago, one warehouse club member-slash-innovator decided to combine two of Costco's most popular food court items: wrapping the forever-affordable hot dog in a mass of cheese pulled from a slice of pizza—a dubious move that nonetheless became a social media phenomenon.

Now, there's a new food court mashup going viral. This time, the legendary Costco hot dog is paired with something else: the club's beloved chicken bake.

According to a Reddit thread, the new gluttonous combo works like this: 1) buy one hot dog and one chicken bake, 2) remove the hot dog from its bun, 3) bite the ends off the chicken bake, 4) insert the hot dog into the baked good, and  5) "enjoy your monstrosity," as the user Siphen_Fraud put it.

Some are calling it the "forbidden glizzy." Others are calling it "perverse" and "an experience in hypertension."

"Some people will stick their hot dog in anything," one Redditor quipped.

For those adventurous enough to try it, please know the logistics can be an issue. For instance, biting both ends off the chicken bake is essential in order to properly insert the hot dog, according to Redditor WhooshThrottle: "I tried and tried to cram that dog in there with only one end open but it wasn't happening. After a few awkward looks from fellow food courters and a comment from the wife about how funny I looked I figured I had to give in and bite off the other end. Once the second end is removed it goes in pretty firmly."

Of course, that same open-endedness also makes the zany foodstuff quite messy, as the creamy filling drips seeps out the bottom as you eat. "As soon as I read that instruction, I thought 'oh it's gonna squirt!'" one commenter aptly noted.

With warehouse club culture now embracing two viral Costco hot dog mashups, it makes you wonder what bizarre creation the food court fans will think up next.

One Redditor proposed the outrageous idea of combining both mashups into one: "Wrap a slice of cheese pizza around that bad Larry and you've got yourself a meal."

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year. Now the numbers are in, and since January 2021, "food at home" spending has increased 7.4%. Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That! "Anything that's substantially less [than the 7.4% increase] is a deal," said Lempert. "When you

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
