What if grocery shopping was fun? If it wasn’t something you had to do each week–figuring out the best prices for meals for your picky family? Waiting, waiting forever to ring your purchases through, hoping that the one little tub of ice cream you bought yourself as a treat would stay frozen just long enough to make it home. What if, instead, it was a delightful adventure you could take with your best buddy, laughing all the way, having a grand old time?
In other words, what if you were Oprah?
On Wednesday’s episode of The Ellen Show (weekdays at 4 pm ET on CTV), Ellen and her good friend Oprah stopped by a local grocery store to check out Oprah’s new O, That’s Good! food line. (Get it? “O”? Yeah. That’s good.) From the very beginning we knew this was going to be no regular shopping trip. From Oprah’s admission that she hasn’t set foot in a grocery store since Thanksgiving 2016 — which, to be honest, is surprisingly recent — to the pair of Louis Vuitton suitcases the duo used to carry their groceries home (recycling, you know), this was shopping Oprah and Ellen style.
They compared cucumbers, because size does matter. Ellen ‘found’ some booze in Oprah’s bag. Embarrassing! But so awesome. And what we wouldn’t give to pick out honeydews with these two, because you know Ellen made a joke about Oprah with melon boobs, and snapped a picture for good measure. She also took over the store’s loudspeaker, much to the delight of shoppers, ‘Hello, I need dandruff shampoo for Oprah, If someone can tell me where the dandruff shampoo for Oprah is … and the odor eaters. What else did you want? Odor eaters, dandruff shampoo and ointment… what is the ointment for?’
Add all that to the general mayhem of a store full of thrilled shoppers and fans, and grocery shopping has never been so fun. Seriously, from now on we’re going to buy our groceries online, because anything less that this is going to be a letdown.
