Cartman’s Cheesy Poofs are here.
Comedy Central is commemorating South Park’s 15th season by making Cartman’s beloved Cheesy Poofs a real product in preparation for a finger-lickin’ South Park marathon. The current season will resume October 15 after a summer hiatus.
The network is pulling out all of the stops for the anniversary: they’ll be building a replica of the South Park school cafeteria at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, in addition to producing a behind-the-scenes documentary later this fall.
But it probably doesn’t compare to fake cheese. In a deal with Frito-Lay, Comedy Central will be releasing 1.5 million bags of Cheesy Poofs out into the wild. Each bag, weighing in at 2.375 ounces, will be yours truly just for $2.99 at your nearest Wal-Mart. And guess what? They’re available next month.
I’m not sure how they’ll taste, but I have a sneaking suspicion if you can’t nab one of these bags, you can probably walk down the aisle for five seconds and pick up some Cheetos. Yellow gooey finger mess included.
