Walmart China: Every Day Low Prices On Weird Stuff

Updated on April 15, 2013
Source

What happens when I’m bored? Well, I had to give up staring out the window because I ended up dyeing my eyebrows and attending my own funeral disguised as a guy named Phil Chifley. “Get rid of cable.” Ok, not really. But I do like to seek out funny and unusual stuff to keep my mind occupied. I suppose I could look up ways to create green energy using old muck boots and a soda bottle or how to clone my own chicken using baking soda and a thumbtack.

While I was perusing the dregs of the internet, I came across a wonderful little site called BuzzFeed. And listed on this delightful site was a photo essay entitled “16 Items They Only Sell At Chinese Wal-Marts.” What makes the Wal-Marts in China so different than the Wal-Marts in the US? Well, besides the more upscale dress code, I give you their 16 items unique to China with my commentary as a free, added bonus.

Source

1. Crocodiles

When I have absolutely no idea what to make for dinner, my first thought is, of course, crocodile. Why wouldn’t it be? They taste like chicken, right? Brown up a pound of croc, toss in some Croc-Helper and dinner is served. I wonder what kind of veggie goes with crocodile. It couldn’t be just any wimpy vegetable. It would have to be fierce and confident. Artichoke! Yep, it’s tough, hard to eat and green. It’s the perfect accompaniment to crocodile. It’ll be the next epicurean wave. Look for it at Red Lobster next year.

2. Bulk Rice

Buying rice in bulk actually makes a lot of sense to me. But why is there such a big price difference between the two kinds? Is one grown exclusively for the rice connoisseur? Is the cheaper variety that less rice tasting? Was it grown on the bad side of the rice paddy? I guess the only way to find out is to hop a plane to China and go see for myself. Anyone want to donate a dollar to my research fund? I promise to write a hub about it when I get back. Seriously.

3. Mixed Meat

Is it me or should these folks be wearing plastic gloves and standing behind a sneeze guard? Maybe it’s a new method of tenderizing tough meat. I’m not sure I want to buy my meat from a large, open, container filled with all sorts of mixed meat that Billybob Lee and all of his cousins have man-handled. And how do you know they washed their hands first. You just don’t know where they’ve been before they decided to stop by the meat department and fondle some unnamed meat parts. Heck, they might have just come from caressing the crocodiles and gotten croc cooties all over the mystery meat.

Source

4. Orange Juice & Cooking Oil

I can understand bundling phone with internet. I can even understand bundling a trial size with a full size product. But, for the life of me, I don’t get bundling orange juice with cooking oil. Is there some fantastic recipe in China that calls for mixing OJ and corn oil? I can only guess that it has something to do with fish since there is a fish on the front of the cooking oil jug. Maybe, frying fish is so laborious and exhausting that the cook needs to consume the orange juice to keep up their strength. It might be something as simple as being part of a wacky game shows where the contestant has to create a tasty yet original recipe using only the ingredients contained in a wicker basket.

Source

5. Turtles

I wonder if this is anything like soft shelled crab. I’ve heard of turtle soup, but I always pictured the chef, out on the open ocean in a rowboat, slowly tracking the ancient sea turtle. I never suspected that all the chef had to do was jump on a bicycle and peddle over to Wal-Mart to pick up a half dozen semi-domesticated turtles to throw in the pot. When I was a kid, I used to steal a couple of goldfish out of my dad’s bait bucket. I wonder if little Jimmy Chen has ever stolen a turtle off of the counter before it ended up as dinner.

Source

6. Your Guess Is As Good As Mine.

What the heck are those? Is that some sort of snake jerky? Can you slice it up and serve it on crackers with a nice little aged cheddar? It doesn’t look like any kind of mineral or vegetable I’ve ever seen, not that I’ve traveled the vastness of the world and seen a whole lot. But I have never seen anything like that in my travels around the US. I must not be looking in the right places. And if I don’t know what it is, how the heck can I cook it? If it tastes like banana and I cut it up and dropped it into a stew pot with potatoes, carrots, onion and celery, I doubt even the dog would eat it. On the other hand, I’m pretty sure that billybuc would eat it. Have you seen his recipes for bachelors? Ew.

Source

7. Walmart Brand Spirits ($0.15)

That looks a lot like grain alcohol! And it’s just sitting out in the aisle like the pallets of toilet paper and cheesy poofs. I’m thinking that if this was the case in the US, every teen within a hundred miles would be shopping at Wal-Mart every Friday night before heading out to their favorite party spot. Pick up a couple bottles on Walmart brand alcohol and a couple of flavor enhancers for water and you have a party in a bottle for under five bucks. Man, what I wouldn’t have given for some cheap entertainment like that when I was a teen. We had to settle for poking road kill with a stick, that is, until the bears found out and ran us off.

Source

8. Rib Cages

I’m really hoping that those ribs are from a tasty animal like cow, pig or lamb. I would hate to think that the zombie apocalypse was being exploited and commercialized by Walmart in China. Makes me wonder what else the product specialists have in store for the average consumer; feet, liver, tongue or maybe heart? What’s that you say? Those products are already commonly found in the meat department? Wow, I need to expand my shopping horizons and get with the program.

Source

9. Assorted Dried Reptiles

Realizing that they were missing out on a very large demographic, Wal-Mart began offering a wide variety of ingredients and items for the practicing witch and warlock. I’m sure if asked nicely, the associate in the Pagan Department would be more than happy to custom grind and blend free of charge.

No offense to the witches and warlocks of the world, without you, there would be no magic.

Source

10. Boxes Of Liquor

You can’t beat an adult candy store with everything on my wish list. With all the money to be saved on everyday items, why not splurge a little and get a little something for yourself? Nothing says success like a fully stocked liquor cabinet when the neighbors come over. You will be the talk of the neighborhood and the cool place to hang out. I bet the hardware department has everything you need to build the ultimate bar to showcase your excellent taste in adult beverages. Stock up now for the holiday season.

Source

11. Frogs

No more pulling an all-nighter at the local swamp jigging for frogs for this kid. Nope, now I can sleep in as late as I want and buy them at my leisure. I’m guaranteed to get just as many as I need for a frog leg dinner when Bobbie Joe and his lovely girlfriend, Missy Sue stop by to chew the fat.

I wonder how they keep those critters from jumping out of the tank. And do they have a frog wrangler standing by in case there's a frog stampede?

Source

12. A Large Selection Of Chopsticks

This item is something I was just not expecting to find in a Chinese Wal-Mart. Now why would someone possibly need such a wide variety of chopsticks? Are some like every day, ordinary chop sticks? And others are for more upscale occasions like when the mother in law is coming over to criticize and belittle every aspect of your life? I, myself, prefer the multi-colored pack. I’ll take a dozen, please.

Source

13. Ducks

Oh the things I could do if only I had a semi-prepared duck. I dream of a wall of ducks just hanging around waiting for me to stop by and toss a couple in my shopping cart. Then I would hurry home and fire up the grill. I would prepare a tasty treat for my family and they would praise my greatness though song and poem. If only Walmart sold duck!

Source

14. Great Value Brand Beef Granules

Nothing says “I love you” like a big ole bag of Great Value Brand Beef Granules, especially the hot and spicy kind. I can’t even imagine what you could use these for. Maybe playing practical jokes on the neighborhood kids at Halloween. They think they’re getting something gooey, chewy and totally awesome. But after a minute of popping one into their sweet little mouths, a volcano of heat and fire so hot, only to souls trapped in the flames of eternal damnation know the depths of the pain.

Source

15. Pig Faces

Yummm! I loves me some pig faces! I was unaware that China held a substantial population of rednecks and backwoods inhabitants. Who else would find animal faces nutritious and equally delicious? This gives me and my kinfolk a whole new region to explore and exploit. I am overcome with excitement and joy at the possibility of expanding my horizons through cultural exchange. Pardon me while I go load up the 4 x 4 hillbilly style and relocate to a new land of opportunity filled with pleasant peasants and friendly farmers.

Source

16. Antibacterial Bikini Underwear For Men

After some extensive research, I discovered that antibacterial underwear is used to “reduce the opportunity of candida albicans affection.” And they reduce the chance of contracting mites in the delicate areas of the body, namely the ‘private parts.’ So, my understanding is, if you find that mites are developing an affection for your nether regions, wearing these special undergarments would be an appropriate response, and to do so immediately. Gotcha.

Source

Bonus: Shark

I would buy a shark if only to take it to the community swimming pool and pull the biggest hijinks since the Baby Ruth on the bottom of the pool shenanigans.

Do you shop at Walmart?

See results

Conclusion

There you have it, my friends, that's what happens when I get bored. I guess it beats hiding out for the rest of my life from the mafia because I was staring out the window. And it's cheaper than a Happy Meal for two on a Saturday night, but not as romantic, unless the mites are feeling a little frisky.

      Au fait, my long lost sister! Glad you enjoyed it. I have many fond memories of poking road kill with a stick as a kid on a Friday night...well, in the summer time anyway. Too cold in the winter. ;) Thank you for dropping by!

      Love you line about being trapped in the eternal flames of damnation. Also think you must have grown up just down the road from me out in the country since poking roadkill with a stick was the most exciting thing to do on a Friday night. Pig's faces are nothing more than Pink Slime unprocessed. They put them in our hotdogs here.

      Very funny as always, and interesting. Voted up!

      Believe it or not, I met a guy called Phil Chifley and I always wondered about his strange colored eyebrows. Only it wasn't at a funeral but a local strip club. ( I was on an emergency call-out, I hasten to add. Medical emergency, not any other kind, mind you). You know what, you need to be perennially bored so that we don't have to be. You should be a Liz Lemon. You should be on SNL. Heck, you should be my drinking buddy so I laugh till I snort branded spirit through my burning nostrils. You, Terrye T. write like a dream.

      Hiya brave. I guess they do. I live around stock yards and have, on more than one occasion, seen fresh butchered beef being delivered to the local meat market before I went in to shop. And as my husband is a big hunter, I've seen game butchered and then I've cooked it. I guess it all depends on what you are used to. In Louisiana, they are used to eating all sorts of crazy and yummy stuff! :) One man's ew i another man's yum! lol!!

I may be wrong but I believe the thing you couldn't identify is indeed, penis!

      Hi there, Tammy! Don't it tho?! :) They have a thankless job. My uncle was an FDA meat inspector in WA for years and he would tell mom horror stories. I had to stop listening to them. lol! :) It has to be worse than the stench of the stock yards baking in the 100+ heat we've been having.

And after I use my cooking oil to put together an amazing entree' that is even better than my famous pb and j sandwich, I will be taking a stroll down to the pool and fend myself against the shark with the 12 pack of colored chopsticks. After my phenomenal victory over the shark, I will hit up Walmart on the way back home to pick up some celebration "drinks!".

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHA!!!!

      I was actually shopping in Walmart when Colin posted this link on my page.

      I'm glad you didn't have to die your eye brows like Phil Chifely, cause dying red hair may be expensive, even if you buy the dye at Walmart.

      1. Crocodiles: The Chinese will eat ANYTHING. Good side dish? How about lily pads? Maybe hydrilla, something the croc may have used to hide before it got caught. I've eaten alligator tail at Pappadeux, and it did taste like chicken...

      2. Bulk Rice: There are different kinds of rice, and it does get expensive. Makes you wonder which kind of rice the UN used to give away to third world countries. During my shopping trip to my local Walmart, I reached for a bag of rice, and was beaten to it by an Indian lady. Maybe she paid too much for rice at a Chinese Walmart. China and India are kinda close...

      3. Mixed Meat: How do the Chinese live as long as they do by being as unsanitary as they are? Now I know how Mad Cow disease originated. Crocs have cooties?

      4. Orange Juice and cooking oil: I’m thinking it’s a marketing ploy; buy the croc with the orange in its mouth, and we’ll sell you the cooking oil to fry it with. And look, you don’t have to squeeze the orange, cause we’re giving you free orange juice for your trouble.

      5. Turtles: I saw an episode of Weird Foods with Richard Zimmer. They were in an Asian diner, and the chef had some wine, a knife, and a turtle. No, they were not toasting a ninja turtle. Let’s just say that it didn’t end well for the turtle…

      6. Mystery meat: I saw something similar to this at an Asian deli. There it was intestine stuffed with mystery filling and smoked. I would need to be smoking something to even consider trying something like this…

      16. Anti bacterial underwear? Makes sense if you’ve been handling crocs and frogs. Works for preventing mite infestation? Really? Mmm…

      I wanted to visit a Chinese Walmart once, to see if their Walmart people are like ours. No need to anymore. Thank you so much for the laughs...

      HI Suzie!!! :) I'll pick up some superglue the next time I hit Walmart to put you back together. :) OOOO Walmart in the land of the leprechauns (and not the evil ones that eat people)! Now THAT would be awesome to explore!!!

      lol Thank you for your vote and support! :) Much appreciated and the next round is on me! Tell 'em to put it on billybuc's tab. *wink*

      Terrye, I loved this and really did get a great laugh out this one. Especially liked #6 and even before I read further thought of Bill's recipes for bachelors. Also, loved the sharks and can't even fathom this one at all! Voted up and shared too of course!!

      Hey there, Jools! Hm...maybe I should get bored more often. LOL I' wondering if they need those specialty undies for shopping in Walmart. :) Who knows what else comes with a Pig Face and a side of frog! :) I lmao @ "spawn!!" You crack me up! Loved it! :) Thank you for joining in on my wackiness. :) It's always good to have company!

      Thank you, tillsontitan! :) My hubby doesn't seem to think so tho. I get sent to the corner without my laptop if I annoy him. :) Two WHOLE votes for funny ass hubber?! Yes, I have conquered the world and can now happily hang up my writer's smock (you know this writing business is messy work). :)

      As sad as this may sound, I would gladly shop at a Chinese Walmart if it opened near me. The 150+ mile round trip to the nearest place to shop is really getting old! :)

      So glad you enjoyed my insanity and glad to have you along on my journey into a new world! :) Thank you from the bottom of my shopping cart!

      You crack me up! LOL God bless you being bored TT, this is hilarious, a few expletives were used, I hasten to add at pig faces, crocs, pile of ?? and reptile bags!! Did not know Wal -Mart was in China and gets me thinking . . . .what could they offer the Irish here???!!

      Excellent humour as always and you have your no 2 vote for Funniest Hubber, mega congrats and fingers X'd!!

      Terrye....SO glad that you got bored and wrote this article - what an eye opener! The Chinese certainly have eclectic tastes when it comes to foodstuff and their underwear preferences seem to err towards the pessimistic wearer - mites? Really? I'll have a Pigs Face with a side of frogs....easy on the spawn!

      Actually you have a grand total of TWO votes for funny ass hubber! :) Who else but you would take us on a lovely trip through downtown China's fully stocked Walmart? Will there be one like this opening soon near you?

      Voted up, funny, awesome and interesting.

      Heya, hecate-horus! I have some close friends that are Wiccan, and I agree, some of the most gentle souls and true animal lovers I've ever met! Glad you took it as comedy and nothing more in that respect. And I agree, a very interesting look at a culture I can only hope to explore some day! :) Thank you for sharing your most valued insight into Wizards and Witches. :)

      OMG! lol... What are those? yeah, I asked myself the same question. The pig faces look gross! I don't mean it in a bad way, but you know what I mean. Crocodiles, it's what's for dinner? Not brave enough to try that either. This site that you came across is interesting! Voted up odd and interesting!

      Hm...maybe cuz bear meat isn't nearly as popular as bear gallbladders that are supposed to have some kind of magical powers. Every couple of years, an illegal bear hunting ring gets busting in AK for only taking the gallbladders. yuck. Hhhhmmmmm....the history of the American Flip Flop.... :)

      WOW. This is a really awesome hub! Seriously, I am so torn between wonderfully fascinated and completely repulsed! (Pig faces??)

      Thanks for the shout out to all the Wizards and Witches! But... I have a snake as a pet, so I would never think of harming a reptile for my potions or spells. In fact, most Pagans wouldn't use dead animals in their spell work. We are HUGE animal lovers!

      Anyway, I really loved this hub! It was a keyhole peek into another culture that most of us rarely see, and you did it well. VUMS!

      Good hub, TT...voted UUFI. Now, to some mystery solving, CWB-style:

      #1. Crocodile Jerky...A great item for trekking in Alaska and The Bad Lands!

      #2. The Expensive Bulk Rice is to throw at Sasquatch when he gets hitched.

      #4. OJ +Vodka = The Screwdriver. OJ + Corn Oil = The Bowel Driver.

      #5. Turtles are to be nurtured and irradiated until they become BOTH Teenagers listening to One Direction AND Ninjas working with the Dark Knight.

      #6. "I Love Justin Bieber" arm bands?

      #7. Linament for the Liver no doubt.

      #9. Dried Reptiles...just throw in NYC sewers and wait!

      #10. Question Is: Is it a "success" if it's full when they leave, or empty?

      #11. Since the upper class eats the legs, do the barbarians get to eat the rest?

      #12. Chopsticks make the perfect plug when the screws in door hinges work loose with age; always keep a few in your carpenter's toolbox.

      #13. In the ensuing food fight, you would, of course yell, "DUCK!!"

      #14. Beef granules: over here we call them Bullion Cubes.

      #15. Notice the snouts...then watch the stands of the Washington Redskins for the snout-wearers!!

      #16. If my eyes fail me not, those shorts are a bluish tinge...blue ointment soaked?

      SHARK: Repeat after me, "Micky D's Fish Sandwich!"

      Heya, Linda! I have boys, nothing scares me any more. I wrote this hub while munching on a strawberry poptart. :) lol! Glad you enjoyed it, even with the gag factor! :) Since they listed chopsticks, you woulda thunk there would have been a large variety of flip flops. Weren't flip flops a Chinese invention? :)

      I just lost my lunch. This hub is hilarious, but simply gross also. I can't imagine how you created this hub without gagging? Oh hold up, you most likely did. Mixed meat?!? Ewwww! Your descriptions of the items truly flipped my flops!!! Outstanding!;)

      Turtle soup's a fave among some Chinese in Singapore here. Medicinal properties and all of that. And so's frog porridge in Chinatown! Gribbit!Not that I'm a fan, though.

      The jerky are actually preserved sausages.....sweet stuff that they eat with stewed chicken or on their own, with fried rice dishes as well. Don't like them very much, a bit too sweet for me. A bit hard to see though, they've put them in a pile, so I can't tell you the kind of meat it's made of. And, yes, sharks fin soup is popular.....that's why environmentalists are not to happy about the shark. Cool hub! Funny as usual too!

      Just so you know, I voted for you as funniest Hubber, and this is an excellent example of why. Absolutely hilarious Sis! thanks for the mention by the way. You are one funny lady and seriously, who in the hell would be that stuff? I was laughing all by myself....no, I was howling all by myself. Loved the underwear!

      Booze by the box? Where was that when I was drinking myself into a coma every night?
