The Costco Canada Food Court item that American shoppers would love to see in the United States

Walk into a Costco food court here in the United States and there will be a select, yet popular, variety of menu items available to order. There are pizzas with cheese and pepperoni, the beloved and affordably priced hot dogs and the chicken dishes with Caesar dressing. But if you walk into a Costco food court in northern Canada, you’ll find a meal combination that we’re quite shocked isn’t available here: chicken strips and fries (yummy!).

Most red-blooded Americans are fans of chicken strips and fries (hence all the fast food chains that focus on chicken, like Chick-fil-A and Raising Cane’s). The same seems to be true of Costco Canada’s meal combo, as there are Reddit threads full of comments from American fans eager to have it available in the US. “Chicken and fries would be such a hit in the States,” says one Redditor while another exclaims, “Bring chicken fingers to the US! Let’s trade the sandwich or the chicken pocket thing.” Then there are the Canadians, who are shocked to discover that Costco food courts here don’t have strips and tease how delicious the fried food actually is: “Don’t you have chicken strips there? Really the best thing on the menu.”

Costco Canada’s chicken strips seem delicious – and affordable

According to a Costco Canada food court menu, the chicken strips and fries combo costs $6.99, which is a bargain if they taste as good as Canadian Costco fans claim. An order includes four large strips and an average amount of fries. The menu lists the items with a hint of honey mustard, but we’re not sure if that comes with an order, so you might have to stick with the ketchup pump that’s there for the hot dogs. You’ll consume about 1,300 calories with the meal — an expectation anyway if you eat fried food at a food court.

Also available at Costco food courts in Canada are the fries on their own, with gravy or with poutine (a classic Canadian dish). But surprisingly, these aren’t the only locations selling some type of fried chicken. Did you know you can order a bucket of fried chicken from Costco food courts in Taiwan that get rave reviews? We may not have fried chicken at the Costco food courts around here, but you can still distract yourself with our ranking of all the items available in the US — and the top-rated foods contain at least some kind of chicken.
