About 200 Sam’s club locations are already selling the quarter-pound Polish dogs, but now they'll be offered at 99 cents in all locations starting July 23, so people everywhere can get their solution, the company said in a statement.

"You don't have to be a Sam's club member to eat at the cafe," he stated.

Costco decided to scrap its Polish dog to make way for "healthier" choices, although it will continue to sell its regular beef sausage, a staple in its popular $ 1.50 hot dog and soda combo.

Though Costco locations in California and other areas of the Northwest have long been weeding out Polish dogs - and some places in other parts of the country haven't even served - the decision to remove the Polish Kielbasa has sparked some upset on social media .

“You're ruining my life. I don't want to buy Polish dogs in bulk. I want to buy one when I walk out the door. Why are you doing this? “Complained one person on Twitter.

“Yes, Sam’s club wanted to make sure that people everywhere could get their Polish dog repaired and at a good price,” said TODAY Food.
