      1. I believe Kirkland is Costco's home brand.

          Yes, most people know that. The point is most Costcos are no longer serving Hebrew National hot dogs and Polish.

            Wondered why the strange post, I figured most people already knew that. Did not know they used to serve H-N and are no longer doing so.

              Price Club began serving the $1.50 Hebrew National hot dog and soda in 1985.

              The change over to Kirkland began a couple years ago when Hebrew National could no longer keep up with the demand and/or Costco was trying to save money by switching to their own Kirkland brand.

                Well I applaud Costco for keeping the cost at $1.50 for a hotdog and soda. Can't beat that deal! The hotdog is decent, but not HN.

                  I always get the Polish sausage and honestly I can't tell the difference between the Hebrew National and Kirkland.

        2. The question is who makes the Kirkland dogs.

            Got to be someone big.
            2008 they sold 82 million hot dogs world wide. 2009 almost 90 million world wide.

              Hebrew National, just without the marketing budget.

                1. re: mc michael

                  Well, it's certainly not hard to fact check this. Hebrew National hot dogs are spiced just like their salami. Other hot dogs really don't taste anything like them.

            2. The Fullerton store has changed over. Not sure if the Yorba Linda has yet. They said thet were trying to hold out!
