Big news for fans of the ever-popular Costco churro.
The big box store has developed a sizable following for its food court over the years where it sells the cinnamon sugar-coated treats.
At the Huntington Beach Bella Terra shopping center location, shoppers have noticed a “Coming Soon” sign promoting the return of the churro. Another customer says they spotted the same announcement at a Costco in Irvine.
If there’s a downside to the return of the beloved sweet treat, it’s that it comes with a price increase. Previously offered for $1, the churro is now said to be priced at $1.49.
Costco hasn’t announced when, or if, a national rollout is coming.
Those looking for low-cost eats have long since flocked to the chain’s food court. Some of the other top-selling menu items include pizza, hot dogs, the barbecue brisket sandwich, turkey provolone sandwich and acai bowls.
Within the last year, Costco has considered requiring an annual membership - which starts at $60 - to gain access to its food court.
