Costco is no stranger to massive fanfare around its popular grocery items, from the much-hyped bakery finds to the scores of tempting snacks.

At Costco's highly anticipated annual shareholders meeting on Jan. 18, CEO Ron Vachris said that Costco's service deli had a "very strong year."

He revealed that the department sold a whopping 137 million rotisserie chickens globally in 2023

Costco's sales for its hot dog combo in 2023 were far from shabby as well. Vachris said that the warehouse club sold a little under 200 million of the combos throughout the year.

That's far more than the 156 million hot dog combos the company sold in 2022, but Costco wants the popular food court item to perform ever better in 2024.

Members have come up with tons of creative and tasty uses for the roasted birds, like turning them into chicken salad or adding the meat to fried rice, tacos, casseroles, and soups.

Members aren't shy about sharing their adoration for the rotisserie chickens and say the price makes them an "amazing deal."

"It's amazing how many different meals you can make using a $5 chicken," a shopper noted on Reddit in 2023.
