Health & Fit: This Costco Product Keeps Changing in Size, Customers Say

The Costco Deli Just Brought Back This Comfort Meal

  The Costco Deli Just Brought Back This Comfort Meal The Costco deli offers tons of grab-and-go meals, and a fan-favorite has just returned just in time for fall—the Chicken Pot Pie!Like the others, the Costco deli's Chicken Pot Pie is huge—over 5 pounds huge. At $3.99 a pound each one comes out to be around $20, and since this savory pie can feed many people, it's a pretty good deal that doesn't involve any slicing, dicing, or mixing. It is made in-house with, you guessed it, rotisserie chicken also from the deli.

Costco fans will inevitably notice if the warehouse makes any changes to their favorite items—no matter how small. This year alone, sleuths (er, members) discovered that Costco might have changed its blueberry muffin recipe and some of its rolls of paper towels come with fewer sheets. More recently, one customer claimed that the frozen meatballs in the iconic 6-pound Kirkland Signature bag keep changing in size.

Reddit user @NowEvenBetter posted a picture of three meatballs from three different time periods—14 months ago, five months ago, and today. The oldest meatball is considerably bigger and weighs 28 grams, the second oldest weighs 14 grams, and the newest weighs 18 grams. (Related: The 100 Unhealthiest Grocery Foods in America)

Though the meatballs of today apparently weigh 10 grams less than the meatballs of July 2020, other Costco members in the comments say that it isn't necessarily a bad thing.

"Smaller meatballs means more surface area and more browning per oz. You are still getting 6 pounds of meatballs, just smaller and more. I would prefer this," one user wrote, with another adding, "plus quicker to heat."

Some offered possible explanations of why the weight of the meatballs had fluctuated so much in a year. Perhaps it doesn't have to do with Costco at all?

"When I first saw this I assumed it was how much the meatballs shink and lose mass as they dry out when left out over the stated periods of time," another user said.

Others noted that no matter the size of the meatballs, the bag still weighs 6 pounds in the end. What do you think?
