#117 SuperMarket Sweep Made Shopping Look Like A Blast.

As a child, I loved going to the grocery store — and I think this game show was the cause of that. Even today, I don’t hate shopping – it just isn’t as fast paced and fun as I’d anticipated. On the 90s Lifetime version of SuperMarket Sweep, there were a variety of question games that entertained us momentarily – but they knew what we really wanted. The “Big Sweep” was so exhilarating to watch, I can’t even imagine partaking in such festivities. Basically, the teams would run through the store, filling their carts with whatever they could get their hands on. The goal was to compile the highest grand total, which decided the winners.
The concept of sprinting up and down isles, snatching an abundance of various products from the shelves, and being rewarded for it is just awesome. Unfortunately in real-life, it’s a whole lot different. You stroll around, searching for items that seem like they’re hidden. People walk slowly; block the aisles carelessly with their cart, and the entire shopping experience drags out, unpleasantly. Then, to top it all off, you have to pay for it all. Big time bummer.

Relive the magical SuperMarket Sweep days, by viewing the episode below.
