From an early age I have been fascinated with the timed shopping spree concept and anytime a contest hinted at one, I was all over it. I loved Supermarket Spree and that episode of Laverne & Shirley where they win the spree (fish sticks and scooter pies!) I never got to see a Pepsi Cola run contest, but I can tell you that I probably would have drunk a heck of a lot of Pepsi.
FYI – The winners of the 1964 spree collected 6200 worth of groceries which close to 46,000 in today’s dollars.
