Can you believe the outrageous claims floating around on the internet these days? Well, buckle up, folks, because there’s another whopper coming your way. According to an article by Anna Mock, Costco is facing a lawsuit from a golf company. Now, you might be scratching your head and wondering, what does golf have to do with emergency food supply kits? Hold on tight, you’re about to find out.
A post on the dreaded and not-so-reliable “X” claims that Costco has just started selling emergency food supply kits. The post even includes a video showcasing the supplies. But let’s take a moment to fact-check this wild claim, shall we? The verdict is in, and it’s a resounding FALSE.

You won’t believe this, but those kits are not new, folks. In fact, they have been around since 2018. That’s right, two whole years before this misleading post started making the rounds. How do we know? Well, the trusty New York Post reported on it back in 2018, and even Fox News jumped on the bandwagon to spread the news. These kits were retailing for a whopping $6,000 and included an incredible 36,000 servings. Now that’s what I call Costco-sized!
So here we are, in 2024, and people are still acting like this is some brand-spanking-new revelation. I don’t know about you, but I’d like to give a standing ovation to those fact-checkers who are actually doing their job. We’ve got enough panic and chaos in the world without spreading false information about Doomsday kits, don’t you think?
Now, I can’t help but wonder if there’s a hidden agenda behind all this hoopla. Maybe some folks just want to stir up fear and anxiety. Or perhaps they’re trying to distract us from more important issues. It’s not surprising these days. People will go to great lengths to make a mountain out of a molehill, especially if it suits their narrative.
So, folks, the next time you come across a sensational claim about Costco’s emergency food supply kits, just remember – it’s old news. These kits have been sitting on the Costco shelves since 2018, waiting for the day when Doomsday finally arrives. Until then, let’s focus on the real issues that actually affect our daily lives. And please, let’s not forget to use a little common sense when scrolling through our internet feeds.
