Restaurants Are Now Gifting Toilet Paper With Meals

Normally, if a restaurant handed you a roll of toilet paper with your purchase, it’d probably make you think twice about what you’re eating.

These are not normal times, though, and the toilet paper struggle is real.

You wouldn’t think new food trends would pop up during a pandemic, but there are actually a handful of restaurants that have started giving toilet paper to its customers.

We first saw it done by Guerrilla Tacos, who were selling “Emergency Taco Kits.”

Like many restaurants during the pandemic, the Los Angeles staple had to pivot their model and find a solution for the surplus of food they currently had in stock. As a solution, Guerrilla Tacos came up with the kits which included 5 lbs of roasted chicken, 5 lbs of carne asada, and all the side fixings.

The real gold however, was the addition of a roll of toilet paper and 30 eggs, which also have been scarce in grocery stores of late.

As of this writing, the kits are being sold for $149 on their site, and are available via pick-up.

We then saw the county fair staple-turned-restaurant, Chicken Charlie get in the mix.

Chicken Charlie’s Table in San Diego, California, is offering a roll of toilet paper with a minimum $20 purchase. The king of fried food has his famous Deep Fried Oreos on his takeout menu, along with his classic fried chicken and plenty of other goodies to stack up that $20 order.

The Beacon Tap in Chicago, on the other hand, doesn’t even have a minimum requirement. If you just buy something, they’ll give you a roll.

Schmizza Pizza in Oregon is another notable toilet paper Santa, as they’re giving a roll when you buy a $15 pizza.

Last but not least — and the first chain we’ve seen do this — is Ike’s Love and Sandwiches. Ike’s is now offering a free roll with the order of any of their sandwiches.

While Ike’s restaurants are delivering, the toilet paper offer is only applicable for in-store pickup orders. Those who order delivery will not be left in the dust, though, as you can get free delivery through their app, up until March 30.

Hell, there’s probably a lot of restaurants with leftover toilet paper, and no customers dining in to use it. If you’re not lucky enough to be get that TP at the store, check your local restaurants. They might be the new hookups.
