Many Costco Warehouses Just Added This In-Demand Item
The Costco deli makes it easy to pick up ready-made foods fit for a crowd, but there has long been one item members wish would become available at a warehouse near them—sushi. Some U.S. locations have it, like in Hawaii and California, but it's a favorite that the rest of the country has been hoping for. However, they might not have to wait much longer.
Over the last few months, it seems as though sushi has quietly become available in more warehouses, according to social media posts. Packages have popped up in places like New York and Minnesota and come with a variety of rolls for as low as $6.99 and as high as $25 or more.
Costco members on Reddit have recently posted about finding sushi. In January, one member revealed that they saw fresh rolls in St. Louis Park, Minn. for about $6.99-$8.99. They were not impressed with the quality, though, saying it was not fresh and super dry.
Then, about three months ago, another member posted about finding it for the first time in their Minnesota warehouse, but noted it was the last time they would buy it.
They explained why in the comments—because the texture and flavor of the rice were not pleasant and the sauces that came with it were only sweet.
More recently, more posts have popped up on Reddit about members in various New York locations finding sushi in their warehouse, including Brooklyn, Astoria, and Long Island. Reviews for the options in these warehouses are largely negative—some Costco members say it is bland while others say it's not the best.
Because each warehouse's stock varies, it's hard to pinpoint which areas could see fresh sushi in the deli next. Some members hope it becomes available in New Jersey, the Northeast, and the Midwest soon. Eat This, Not That! has reached out to Costco to try and find out more information on which warehouses could get freshly made rolls next and what goes into the decision about whether or not a warehouse will sell sushi.
