Yes this actually happened. I watched a man purchase nearly pounds of deli buffet food at a price of $7.99/lb. It’s beyond me why someone would spend this much on some of the worst food you could possibly get for your buck. The deli guys seemed equally flabbergasted and gave him his bags of potato chips for free.

I remember one time I had deli buffet macaroni and cheese because I was curious and it looked good. My experience was similar to the first time I had tasti-d-lite which was that the food had all the texture of food, but the flavor was like eating air.
