While there are a lot of grocery stores out there, none are quite like Costco. They hand out samples, you have to buy in bulk, and they sell just about everything you could ever need ranging from sushi to play sets. So, when taking a trip to Costco, it’s not out of the ordinary to see some rather questionable things. Now, check out some of the wildest things ever seen at Costco, from what people have in their shopping carts to the unbelievable things Costco offers on their shelves, it’s an entertaining place to say the least.
Remember when people were eating Tide Pods? Costco sure does.
Always Keep An Eye On Your Kids
Costco is a massive establishment so it’s always a good idea to keep an eye on your kids. It can be like a giant playground for little kids but instead of swings and monkey bars it’s full of food and forklifts.
If you’re not worried about something bad happening to them, you may just find them stuck behind a freezer door like this guy. Chances are he was hot from running around and needed to cool off for a bit.
A 20-Year-Old’s Dream Come True
If you’ve ever been inside a Costco, you know that their alcohol section contains more than a fraternity could drink in a lifetime. It’s a great place to buy booze, only if you’re over 21. However, apparently the rules are different at this Costco, and you’re only allowed to buy alcohol if you’re under 21.
We’re sure it didn’t take long for the college freshman to take their chances buying alcohol here. The sign clearly says it’s okay.
Costco Rotisserie Chicken Is Best Served Hot
It’s no secret that Costco’s rotisserie chicken is pretty darn good. Although eating it cold is an option, it’s worlds better is served hot right out from under the heating lamp. Yet, if you have more errands to run, it’s critical to keep that chicken at the perfect temperature.
Lucky for us, nature has blessed us with a giant heating lamp that works perfect for keeping Costco chicken nice and piping hot. We wonder if this person has been picking away at it all day.
A Different Kind Of Remedy
While alcohol is known to kill bacteria, we don’t think that exactly means that it will help to cure an illness, especially the flu. While some people might go to the doctor to get a flu shot, it looks like Costco wants people to pick up a handle of Kirkland vodka and ward off the flu by getting drunk.
Most people probably wouldn’t go this route but maybe the people that do know something that we don’t…
When Your Mom Says She Has To Run Into Costco Real Quick
We’ve all been there. You’re driving in the car with your mom and the next thing you know, you’re in the parking lot of Costco. She claims that she just has to “run in” and get a few things, but we all know what that means. You definitely don’t want to go in with her, but you also know you might die of boredom in the car.
Looks like this poor soul made the decision to stay in the car. Legend says their mom is still shopping in Costco today.
Safety in the workplace should always be a concern. Nobody wants to get hurt while at work and nobody wants to get hurt on a trip to Costco. The fact that this Costco has only gone two days without injury is a little concerning. The real question is, was it an employee or a customer who was injured?
If I saw this I’d probably take my business somewhere else, for fear of a Kirkland car tire falling on my head.
Check out which items at Costco are better left unsampled.
How Do You Sample Toilet Paper?
One of the best things about Costco are the samples, everyone knows that. But we can all agree that it would be disappointing to see that one of the samples was toilet paper rather than food of some kind. How do you even sample toilet paper?
Do you just keep it in your back pocket until you need to use it? Or do you just feel it with your fingers before throwing it away? It’s an odd sample no matter what.
Liquor On Tap!
Well, we guess we know where we can find the alcohol to put inside of that giant wine glass, just on the side of Costco. While we know that this pump doesn’t actually contain any liquor, it’s just another thing that isn’t all that surprising to find at Costco.
For all we know, a truck does come each week full of Kirkland brand alcohol that is pumped through here and then bottled inside of the store.
Some Things Are Better Left Not Sampled
At a glance, it looks like Costco really started pushing the boundaries and were offering condom samples. Thankfully, that’s not the case. However, you do have to wonder how many people bolted over thinking that they were.
We just feel bad for the poor girl working next to the Trojan area as she offers what looks to be vitamin samples. Hopefully, she’ll get switched positions tomorrow because that must be an awkward situation for everyone involved.

Costco Hot Dogs In Mexico
For the most part, everyone loves Costco hot dogs. They’re of relative quality and reasonably priced. Also, shopping at Costco can definitely work up an appetite, so it’s the perfect option as you’re walking out the door.
However, it looks like the Costco’s in Mexico aren’t messing around when it comes to their toppings. Not only do you get jalapenos, but they line the entire hot dogs, just to make sure that you aren’t craving any extra heat. This dog is not for the faint of heart.
Decisions Were Made
Costco isn’t always the best place to make healthy choices. They have so many options both healthy and not that often you may find yourself making the wrong decision. While this person was originally going to go with with the healthy coconut clusters with organic super seeds, it appears that the smoked shorty sausages caught their eye.
Let’s be honest, nobody can be blamed for making this decision. Chances are, that bag of coconut clusters will remain there long after all the shorty sausages are gone.
See what Costco means by just having one glass of wine.
There’s Not A Lot Of Money In Revenge
Looks like Costco entourages their employees to have a little fun on the job. It’s either that, or someone snuck in and got their hands on the nametag labeler. We’re sure that anyone that’s a fan of The Princess Bride really got a kick out of seeing someone walking around with this name tag.
We wonder if this employee also walked around with a sword attached to their side, although we highly doubt it.
Costco Employees Hard At Work
When a pigeon manages to get inside of Costco, it’s up to the employees to get it out by any means possible. Looks like this employee decided to set a trap in hopes of capturing the bird before a customer asks to speak with the manager about it.
We’re sure that the employee would rather do this than stock the shelves or hand out samples, so they probably pray for wild animals to get in the store all of the time.
Nothing Quite Like Some Chihuahua Cheese
If you’re ever in the market for some cheese made from Chihuahuas, then Costco is the right place for you. They have no shortage of this product and apparently, it’s great for tacos, quesadillas, nachos, and salads.
While this may seem like an unusual item in most other grocery stores, we all know that anything goes at Costco. We’re also sure it pairs nicely with a Labrador quesadilla and some German Shepard salsa.
You can buy literally anything at Costco, they even have an area designated to books of all kinds. While most little girls might pick up something by Dr. Seuss or a book about a princess, but not this one.
She picked out The Art of War by Sun Tzu, a book that is considered to be the most influential strategy text in East Asian warfare. That’s definitely not a very light read but to each their own!
I’m Just Going To Have One Glass
We can’t say that we’re surprised that you can buy an unnecessarily-sized wine glass at Costco, but this is just absurd. You must be able to fit around five bottles of wine into that glass, which is enough to send anyone to the hospital.
Although it’s a novelty item, we can’t imagine anywhere that someone can fit this in their house without making it look like the inside of a sorority house. We just hope that it’s plastic instead of glass or things could get messy.
Costco Is Thinning The Herd
Remember that horrible phase when teenagers were eating Tide Pods and posting videos on the Internet? Well, while other stores were locking up their Tide Pods,, Costco was giving them out as samples! Looks like Costco was in full support of this trend and was using it as an opportunity to thin the herd.
We’re not sure why they wanted to do this because less people living means less people shopping at Costco. We all know that’s the last thing they want!
Happens Every Time
This man’s wife sent him to Costco in order to get some milk, which he did. However, he also happened to pick up a 65″ flat screen television. While some people’s significant others might be furious because of this, you also shouldn’t send someone to Costco thinking that they wouldn’t come back with a little something extra.
Most people’s carts at Costco look similar to this because it’s a trap for shoppers who just need a few things but can’t control themselves.
Just A Heads Up
The products at Costco make it very clear what’s written in the fine print so that people don’t try to take advantage of the store. In this case, it looks like they even made a warning sign for the parking lot in case the place flooded.
We’re not sure which 100 year storm they’re talking about, but now nobody can complain if their car gets flooded because there’s clearly a warning sign. Costco is always one step ahead of its customers.
After You’ve Been In Costco For Hours
Sometimes, going to Costco can be a fun adventure, and at other times, it can be a nightmare. We’ve all been stuck in Costco for so long that eventually we just give up and find a nice piece of furniture to sit on.
That’s exactly what this stuffed bear looks like, someone whose mom has been looking at a new vacuum for hours. It’s either that or the bear is sad because nobody has taken it home with them yet.
