We Pitted Costco's Rotisserie Chicken Against the One from Sam's. Guess Which One We Liked Best? — Shopping

I pick up a rotisserie chicken pretty often. It’s a delicious, zero-prep entree — basically a mom’s ultimate dream. My kids fight over the drumsticks and I get a weird satisfaction from pulling all the meat off the bird to use in other recipes all week.

Obviously, I’m not the only one who feels this way. You can find rotisserie chicken at most grocery stores, big or small. And bulk retailers like Costco and Sam’s Club are in on the game, too, offering exceedingly well-priced rotisserie chicken just to lure people in the front door. In fact, they’ve admitted as much: The rotisserie chicken is well-documented as a loss leader (meaning, you pay less for it than the store ultimately does). These birds aren’t just cheap, though! People lose their minds over a warehouse rotisserie chicken — especially the one from Costco.

I just had one question. Which warehouse store does it better: Costco or Sam’s Club? My family and I gobbled up to find out.
