“This pandemic ain’t over until Costco starts serving free samples again”

Costco (a big-box retail store chain) became famous for offering its members free samples of some products, but this was suspended in 2020 during the Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
     
“I’ll know the pandemic is truly over when Costco offers free samples again” was posted on Twitter by Jim Eagle on October 27, 2020. “This pandemic is not over until Costco gives out free samples again” was posted on Twitter by joey garcia on January 8, 2021. “This pandemic ain’t over until Costco starts serving free samples again” was posted on Twitter by nerds on March 31, 2021, and this tweet went viral (over 120,000 likes).
   
       
Wikipedia: Costco
Costco Wholesale Corporation (doing business as Costco Wholesale and also known simply as Costco) is an American multinational corporation which operates a chain of membership-only big-box retail stores. As of 2020, Costco was the fifth largest retailer in the world, and the world’s largest retailer of choice and prime beef, organic foods, rotisserie chicken, and wine as of 2016.
