I’ve dished on Costco’s glorious culinary offerings before, so it truly pains me to report that one of their classic food court snacks will soon be leaving us forever; R.I.P. Polish hot dog. 

Costco announced they will be discontinuing the popular menu item to make way for new, healthier ones, including vegan options, according to Business Insider. It’s true that their food court feels stuck in the 90s (typically the only healthy-ish option is a chicken Caesar Salad), but that’s part of its charm. Eating there conjures up middle school memories of devouring greasy, cheesy fried food at the mall with your friends.

 Many people seem to be taking this change very personally:

Some made impassioned pleas for keeping the Polish dog.

And people are pointing out that with this menu revamp, Costco seems to be snubbing its core demographic in hopes of attracting some trendier friends. (Basically, pulling a Cady in Mean Girls.)

Even Netflix threw in their two cents with this Wendy’s-level burn.

However, before you freak out *too* much, you should know that the classic hot dog will be sticking around, along with other favorites. (At least for now…)

And vegans are excited to finally get in on that sweet Costco food court action.

So let it all out, Internet. Mourn our fallen friend, the Polish dog. But then go grab a combo slice and a 5 lb. tub of party mix to remind yourself that it’s all gonna be okay.
