Curse you, Costco!!!

I hope all of you have had the pleasure of eating one or many of these from the Costco food court:
It is made with creamy ice cream dipped in real chocolate (not waxy, plastic chocolate like most ice cream bars), and then smothered in almonds. I was craving one the other night, so we went to Costco for dinner, only to discover that they no longer serve them! I was utterly disappointed and had to contain my tears. The lady at the counter said this divine treat removal is Costco-wide! Usually I love Costco, but this is LOW. I say we all protest so we can get the bars back!

I have never had one but now I am upset because they sound devine. At the beginning of the story I was thinking oh I wonder if Costco is still open I would definitely make the drive right now. We've had a long hot day and that would really hit the spot right now. Sorry again about tonight (Friday) we need to reschedule asap.

I just tried to order one tonight, before I read your post and was told the same thing. I told the girl to report to corporate that I was dissatisfied. She smiled and said she would. Humph.

Those are Dave's favorite too and will go just for those. Not too long ago, he was quite upset that he didn't get his either! Why don't you start a petition? We'll sign!!!

Dave came home from costco last night, and guess what he had with him!?! you got it! a treasured ice cream bar. He was at the one here by our house. No one told him it was a limited time offer either. You may want to take a little drive over my way while supplies last!

we returned home empty handed after mom sent us out (ON THE SABBATH) to get her one. she wrote this letter to the store manager;

I am devastated that you have quit selling your chocolate dipped rolled in nuts ice cream bars from the food court. Since you have destroyed my life by not selling them anymore, perhaps restitution could be made if you would please give me the recipe and directions for making my own. I will not try to sell them, they are strictly for my own personal enjoyment. I might even consider buying the ingrediants from you, since I do know the roasted almonds ( a very important part of the recipie) can be purchased right there at Costco. It is hard to imagine even coming to your store without the reward of eating a bar. PLEASE PLEASE I am not kidding, it would mean the world to me, if you could just give me the recipie. Thank you from the bottom of my broken heart which might be repaired dependant upon your cooperation. I am counting on you!

Please do not dissapointment me further. My heart can't take it.
Thank you,
Lari Smith, valued customer since 1983
