Twitter user @vinandwesson was a bit taken aback at his local Kmart when he spied a shopping cart of DiGiorno Frozen Pizzas near the kitchen of a Little Caesars inside the store. He posted the corresponding video, commenting, “this can’t be happening right on front of me.” Even Chrissy Teigen chimed in, tweeting the video out to her millions of followers and calling it “the only Little Caesars I want to go to.”


People magazine immediately jumped on the case, and a Little Caesars spokesman replied that, “Of course, Little Caesars only serves freshly baked pizzas made from fresh dough. We think this is probably just a funny coincidence, but are investigating.” After all, this evidence is completely circumstantial; the video doesn’t show DiGiorno pizzas going right into the Little Caesar ovens, just hanging out nearby.

Upon further investigation, that Little Caesars rep followed up with People, stating “the person in the video was identified as a Kmart employee and ‘no DiGiorno pizzas were baked or served at this Little Caesars location… On that day, Kmart received a few complaints from customers about having purchased expired DiGiorno pizzas from that location, and because it was so close to closing time, the K-Mart manager directed his employee to temporarily store them in a cooler adjacent to the Little Caesars location for disposal in the morning.” Mystery solved! We hope Chrissy Teigen isn’t too disappointed.

Burners Baby Burners: Discussion Inferno

People are assholes for even pretending this is a possibility. Folks may dump on Little Caesar’s for its old days, but the current quality is obviously hand-tossed fresh pizza that is not in any way something you could mistake for a frozen pizza. And if you think you’re too good for $5 pepperoni pizzas, you’re DEFINITELY too good for a miserable freezer pizza.
