Twitter Can't Get Over Costco Removing A Fan-Favorite Menu Item
By GINA LAVECCHIA RAGONE
Costco was forced to pare down its offerings during the COVID-19 pandemic, and, unfortunately, some items never returned. It seems the fan-favorite combination pizza — which was sold at $1.99 with toppings like Italian sausage, pepperoni, sliced green bell peppers, red onions, mushrooms, and black peppers — has left the building for good.
Its absence was felt by Twitter user Kat (@ihykatelyn), who recently posted, "who tf at Costco was like yeah let's get rid of the combo pizza." Over 2,000 people retweeted Kat's question and several people expressed their own displeasure over the elimination of the combo slice, with one follower, who evidently hasn't visited the food court in a while, responding, "they WHAT."
A self-proclaimed insider explained the decision to eliminate the combo pizza, saying, "[T]hey just saw it as a way to save money. They wouldn't make a profit so they only kept the basics. I work there and I've asked the big bosses." Another commenter offered a rumor that trouble with vendors and difficulty maintaining high pizza quality standards were behind the unpopular move.
