Walmart Will Kick-Start Your Fitness Regime With Chocolate Bark And Crisco

Back on slippery track

Back on slippery track

Kelly noticed a display at Walmart with signs that said “Get back on track,” which she assumed meant health foods and workout equipment. What else could it be? (Well, maybe NASCAR merchandise.) Instead of protein supplements and Shake Weights, she found cake mixes and cans of Crisco. Pretty much the opposite of what she was expecting.

“It says ‘Get Back on Track,’ so I assumed it would be vitamins, protein powder and workout gear,” Kelly writes. “It was entirely stocked with baking supplies – chocolate bark, butter-flavored crisco, corn syrup and icing on both sides of the display. I wonder what track they want you to get on …”

The track of deliciousness, of course.

Yeah, someone forgot to change the cards on the back of the shelves. We know. It’s still funny. You don’t really want to run on a track covered with Crisco, anyway.
