Twitter thinks the casserole is a little disturbing

Many people claim they've never seen the dish before.

When people are feeling sad, they often turn to comfort foods — sugary or fatty eats that can sometimes provide temporary emotional relief. When a loved one dies, one of the most popular feel-better side dishes in the Midwest is called “funeral potatoes.” The creamy casserole has been recreated by high-profile cooks including “The Pioneer Woman” Ree Drummond, and now Walmart is even selling it in a just-add-water mix.

Apparently many didn’t know the food existed until it started circulating via Facebook in an advertisement for the superstore — and, long story short, people are severely confused.

“Today’s Walmart ad has presented me with “Funeral Potatoes” and a bear trap. I’LL TAKE THEM BOTH!” @sonicdork wrote on Twitter.

“Seriously?? That’s some strange marketing,” @brneyeddut wrote, adding hashtags “funeral,” “potatoes,” and “starchofdeath.”

“Is it just me, or does anyone else find the name of this potato casserole disturbing? The back side says ‘potatoes to die for’ – now that’s kinda funny???” @ArtsyCatDesigns said.

“The Midwest has a side called ‘funeral potatoes’ because it’s a blasted hellzone where we openly envy the dead,” @bobservo wrote.

Walmart has responded to concerned customer and voiceover actor A.J. LoCascio, who was wondering why the item was being suggested to him on Facebook.

“Funeral potatoes are a gorgeously rich and cheesy hash brown casserole. They got the name because the casserole was commonly served at after-funeral dinners,” Walmart wrote.

The product is made by Augason Farms, which hails from Salt Lake City, Utah. The brand specializes in emergency meal kits carried by big-name retailers including Walmart, Associated Foods, WinCo, Sam’s Club, and Costco. Not into creepy freeze-dried potatoes of death? Here are a bunch of other casseroles you can make for grieving family and friends instead.


It’s a good question, honestly. In fact, many people are wondering the same thing. Walmart recently advertised their Augason Farms 𠇏uneral potatoes” on Facebook and, no, this isn’t a misprint on the packaging. Funeral potatoes are very real, cross our hearts and hope to die (and then have funeral potatoes served at our funeral).

Funeral potatoes are served casserole-style with cheese, onions, sour cream, more cheese, and sometimes a cream-based soup, as Today.com reports. But the only funeral happening around these potatoes is that of our low-carb diet.

The dish’s grisly name is rooted in Southern and Midwestern tradition. Funeral potatoes are often made and given to families post-funeral to provide them with a bit of comfort. It’s literal comfort food, even though the name suggests otherwise.

We can only imagine that funeral potatoes are actually pure heaven when made from scratch. But if you’re craving the dish and don’t have time to make it, Walmart sells a packaged version of the product with a shelf-life up to 18 months. Augason Farms is actually an emergency food supplier that sells products that can be stored for months at a time — products that can be quickly, and easily, made.
