A COSTCO employee says they give shoppers a big clue as to when the store’s hugely popular fried chicken will be ready.
Americans know when the poultry is out of the oven because they can hear a bell ring in the store.
The noise comes from behind the deli counter and spreads throughout the store.
Shoppers then rush to the shelves as they try to get their hands on the freshly made chicken, reveals EatThis.
Costco’s fried chickens are incredibly popular since they’re only $5.
And the chain sold more than 100 million birds in 2020 — a record number, according to Readers Digest.
Birds probably don’t weigh more than six pounds or they wouldn’t fit on the spit for roasting, EatThis reports.
Last month, there were fears of a fried chicken shortage amid reports of empty shelves at Costco stores across the US.
Health experts warned customers to prepare for the worst after cases of bird flu and a spate of twisters were reported at chicken farms in the South and Midwest.
A flock of broilers at a Tysons Food factory in Kentucky tested positive for the H5N1 strain of avian influenza.
And 30,000 turkeys on a southern Indiana farm were culled on a southern Indiana farm.
It’s the first time the strain has been seen since 2020.
Fans took to social media to say how much they love the roast meat.
One said: “Chaos at Costco…no more fried chicken!!!! Aaaccchhh.”
Another commented: “No fried chicken at our Costco. Quite a shock.”
While a third wrote: Who knew that being out of fried chicken at Costco would be a bigger deal than it being out of toilet paper? People are NOT happy.”
Meanwhile, a Costco employee has revealed what asterisks on price tags can mean to shoppers.
And The Sun has already listed four ways to save money at the store.
