Frozen *****'? No wait, baked testicles? No hold on I got it, deep fried scrotum?

Nope. You go to Wisconsin, you find those things in the Supermarket all the time.

You know what always pissed me off...when people stopped and ground the coffee for like 200 bucks, it so 2asn't worth it. They should have been stocking up on honey baked hams and cardboard cutouts of Juicy Fruit.

You get the turkeys. Easy to toss in and you can load up. It's all about finding the bonus though...

Of all the great threads Windy has ever started this is the best. Probably the best supermarket related gameshow of all time.

that was my favorite game show i watched that everyday after school, on PAX i believe, what you do is grab the turkeys and then the cheese should be right next to it, then grab those expensive pots, grab a bonus item and win big.

That's pretty crazy because I was just thinking about this show two or three days ago myself. What the heck is wrong with me?

you can fit more expensive fine cheeses in a smaller space than you could getting six turkeys.

How did they get on? Win the lottery or somthing? I'd gladly give up all the money to be on supermarket sweep.

What was their product that they had to get on the show? Did they waste time grinding coffee? Was David Ruprecht as strikingly handsome in person as he is on tv? I could go on for days...

Speaking of game shows, I'm actually trying out for Who Wants to be Millionaire tomorrow. I know, obviously not nearly as cool as Supermarket Sweep. But I'm looking for a fun way to make a quick 25 grand. It is pretty easy to win at least that amount on that show.

I'll keep that in mind. I don't think I'd be on until next year anyway. I just have to go and take a test. If I pass the test I have an interview with a producer. If they like me I'll get a call to be on the show.

My 5th grade teacher was on the price is right but lost in the showcase showdown.

I used to watch Supermarket Sweep all the time. Great gameshow idea.

I don't advise attempting to play this at your local grocer unless you want to pay for the groceries

Family Feud with Richard Dawson as the host is better than any game show, past or present.

Wow. I just thought of a good prank. Have You and 3 of your friends run into a grocery store. Have one be David Ruprecht and have a fake microphone. Then the other 3 friends have shopping carts and then say "Go!". Then all three of them run around grabbing a bunch of stuff and throwing it into your cart (mostly stuff you want). Then race back to an open check out lane and do whatever. Probably would be more fun when it's empty and late at night when there's only one clerk there. If you grab stuff you wanted then you can actually buy it and the manager or whoever's there can't get pissed off at you because what you're doing isn't against the rules. If you just grab random stuff you can just ditch the carts and run away.
