There’s nothing like eating a steamy pile of cheesy potatoes after a funeral. At least that’s what Walmart hopes you think when you come across one of their more unusual items called “Funeral Potatoes.” The side dish, also known as “Party Potatoes, Cheesy Potatoes, and Mormon Potatoes,” according to Walmart’s website, caused customers to wonder if it was an April Fool’s joke. But, in truth, they are a real thing you can buy.
Customers can find the Potatoes Formally Known as Mormon, aka Latter-Day Potatoes, right next to the “Earthworm Jerky” and may want to buy some extra cheese to really put the “fun” back in funeral.
To be fair, these potatoes may not be intended to eat at funerals. It may be that the potatoes are dead, or you will die after eating these potatoes, or you can only eat these if you are dead inside. The jury is still out.
But what is certain is that these should not be listed under “Emergency Foods.” Thanks to an eagle-eyes customer, we know that they don’t have a long shelf life.
“These are terrible and poorly categorized. 3/5, would buy again.”
