Among the countless products at Costco, some have sparked online conversation, but Costco regularly discontinues items as well. To indicate that an item won't be returning, Costco uses a black asterisk called the "death star" on the product's price sign. While this can lead customers to stock up on beloved items, saying goodbye is still difficult.

One notable item that is no longer available is the All-American Chocolate Cake. Since early 2020, this cake has been missing, and even a petition with nearly 8,700 signatures couldn't bring it back. However, Costco released a miniature version of the cake in July 2021, which features chocolate cake, fudgy frosting, and chocolate shavings, though it lacks the layers of the original.

Another popular item that was discontinued is the Chocolate & Swirl Frozen Yogurt, which was replaced by the now-discontinued açai bowl in 2018. Similarly, the açai bowl was discontinued in 2020, despite its popularity among some shoppers who enjoyed the combination of frozen açai, fresh fruit, Kirkland Signature granola, and banana chips.

The Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels were another favorite that Costco replaced with the churro, which some fans believe is not as good. Lastly, fans of Kirkland Signature Frozen Waffles are disappointed to find only Eggos in the frozen breakfast foods aisle, as they miss the crispy, fluffy, and perfectly sweet waffles.

Costco's ever-changing inventory means that some beloved items may disappear, leaving shoppers to settle for alternatives or lament their absence.

The seriousness of the flu cannot be underestimated, as it can be fatal for both adults and children. One family, still grieving from a tragedy that occurred twenty years ago, emphasizes the importance of vaccinations. According to the Health Department, flu cases have spiked by 27% statewide in the past week, prompting many New Yorkers to prioritize getting vaccinated. The resurgence of COVID-19 and RSV adds to the challenge of distinguishing between these illnesses, as they share similar symptoms such as fever, cough, and fatigue. Testing, whether at home or at urgent care, is vital in identifying the specific infection. To protect oneself and loved ones, it is recommended to receive the vaccine, though it should be noted that it takes about two weeks to become effective. Pregnant women are particularly encouraged to get vaccinated to reduce the risk of severe illness or miscarriage. As always, individuals with respiratory issues should consult their doctors. Fortunately, there have been no reported pediatric deaths this week or this season. The increase in flu cases, along with the rise in COVID-19 and RSV infections, has raised concerns among health officials.
