Cheesy Poofs, from South Park to a Wal-Mart Near You
"Those are mah cheesy poofs!"
If you're a South Park fan -- and who isn't these days -- get excited for a new snack the Frito-Lay division of PepsiCo is preparing to launch next month. Finally, Cheesy Poofs will be real, for a limited time.
The Times is reporting that Walmart will sell the once fictional snacks for $2.99 per bag. Cheesy Poofs will also be doled out for free at the Ultimate South Park Fan Experience, an event hosted by Comedy Central and Comic-Con in San Diego from July 21 to 24. Unfortunately, there are no plans to make chocolate salty balls a reality. Yet.
