When Walmart tweaked its Marketside store-brand frozen pizza recipe last year, it didn't take long before many customers panned the new pies in angry, one-star online reviews -- accusing the retail giant of trying to fix something that's not broken. Now, the company is responding to the criticism by switching back to the old pizza crust recipe, and on Wednesday, stores all across the country are handing out free slices to celebrate the relaunch.
Here's the deal:
Starting on June 6, more than 2,500 Walmart stores throughout the United States will give away free slices of freshly made Marketside Pizza near the store's pizza section, a company spokesperson told Thrillist. Pizza choices will vary by store, but the options include cheese, pepperoni, supreme, and "Ultimate" meat. Best of all, you don't need to buy anything to grab a free slice, though the giveaway is limited to one slice per person.
