Weeks into the coronavirus-induced quarantine, you might be developing a routine for the "new normal" of staying at home. Going out to eat is no longer an option, and your favorite restaurants may not be open for takeout, either. But that doesn't mean you can't have some fun while you're at home! Whether it's adding some nostalgic snacks to your rotation or trying out Dalgona coffee, there are plenty of delicious ways to have fun at home.

And if Walmart is one of your favorite grocery stores, you're in luck! The chain has plenty of healthy options, as well as nostalgic classics. Here are some groceries you can get at the chain right now—they just might inspire your next grocery list.
