If you grew up in the ’90s, there’s pretty much no way you didn’t know what green slime was. Not only was it the best part of Nickelodeon’s game show “Double Dare,” but the network even ‘slimed’ celebrities on its various live shows, and has continued to do so over the past few decades.
If you were like most kids, you likely dreamed of getting slimed yourself. While that probably still won’t happen, the network is offering up the next best thing — and you can get it at Walmart.
Just in time for summer, you will now find Nickelodeon Slime Sauce on store shelves. Say what?!
While it may look like the real thing, you probably don’t want to pour this one all over yourself (I mean, you could if you wanted to…), but it’s actually just ketchup that looks like green slime! That’s right, not only can you add some ’90s flare to you barbecues this summer, but now your kids can get in on the green slime fun, too.
Perhaps the best part? This stuff is only $2.28 for a 20-ounce bottle. Walmart suggests not only using the ketchup on your favorite foods this summer, but keeping it around for theme parties, color-coordinated birthdays and even Halloween.
Of all the ’90s things making a comeback — shout out to Tamagotichis and “Will and Grace!”— I have to admit, I did not see this one coming. It’s not a far stretch from something else ’90s kids grew up with though, so we shouldn’t be too surprised.
If you lived through that decade, you likely also remember when Heinz offered up purple, pink, orange, teal and blue ketchup in 2000. Kids ate it up, with more than 25 million bottles being sold before it was discontinued in 2006, when consumers eventually lost interest.
There’s no saying if the new Nickelodeon Slime Sauce will stick around longer than “funky purple” Heinz, but now that ’90s kids are the ones doing the shopping, covering french fries in slime might just be at the top of the grocery list.
Will you be trying this crazy new condiment?
