What's the weirdest thing you've seen on the shelves of a discount store?

Everyone who knows me knows how much I love shopping at Dollar Tree. I have scored some pretty good deals there and love when I find something new. However I have also found some odd things either what they were titled or just what they were. A couple that stand out to me are the Yeti Pot, which is the Dollar Tree version of a neti pot. Another one would be the collapsible wine glasses they carry during the summer. But one of my favorite is when Dollar Tree started carrying 3 to 5 ounce "ribeye" steaks. What about you? What are some of the odd things you have found on the shelves of your favorite discount store?

I have definitely found some odd items in their frozen food section! Although I never saw the steaks, they have pork loin chops, riblets, Jamaican things, etc. I love their spring rolls and potstickers!! I find it odd that anyone would want to buy individual popcorn containers but they are always there!

Those Jamacian things are aweosme, the little meat pocket things. They are SO good. I discovered them a couple years ago and buy one whenever i remember or they have them. Winn Dixie sells them in two packs as well.

@thislittlepennyearns With the concerns about BPA and the chemicals being used to replace the BPAs in the linings of cans, I avoid buying anything in metal cans if I can possibly avoid it. Dollar store items in general have a history of being low quality and being loaded with potentially toxic chemicals.

I just bought cookies at the Dollar General that are exactly like the Samoas that Girl Scouts sell. My grandsons tell me they taste exactly like them too and they were $1.75 a real bargain. Maybe not weird but surprising!!

I don't trust any meat products bought from the Dollar Tree. I would automatically assume there was something funny about it. I think the oddest thing I ever found at a discount store was this weird knick-knack of a surfing Jesus at the 99 Cents Store. (They also had soccer playing Jesus...) I bought one for my brother and I won Christmas that year. :) (We have a tradition of trying to one-up each other with weird gifts.) Oh, and once I found "nipple petals" at the Dollar Tree. Not sure exactly what those were for...they looked like little band aids that covered your nipples. My brother also got a pack of those for Christmas. XD
