When I was younger (and much much poorer) I would go to the supermarket near where I lived outside of Boston and buy a Chef Boyardee Cheese Pizza Kit.
I think they cost $2.50 or $2.00 back then(maybe even a little less) BUT this particular supermarket had a policy about shelf prices and register prices. I don’t remember exactly what it was but I think if an item you purchased rang up more than the shelf price you got that item for free.
I would go in to buy a pizza kit every week or so and I ALWAYS ended up getting it for free. They never fixed the shelf price or the price in the register. When you are so broke that you are scouring the car seats for gas money change getting a $2.00 pizza kit for free is like winning the lottery.
What I find funny too is that my husband remembers eating these as a kid. I don’t think there were any pizza places near where he grew up. He says it was the only version of pizza he knew. We still see them at some grocery stores but have no desire to try one again. I remember that they had shakey cheese(like the kind that comes in a jar) for the cheese.
