Woman banned from Texas Walmart for eating half a cake, refusing to pay

Earlier this year, another Walmart in the same city banned a woman for drinking wine from a Pringles can.

More than six months after a Texas woman was banned from a Walmart by Wichita Falls police for drinking wine from a Pringles can, a second woman was reportedly banned for eating cake.

According to Wichita Falls Police Department spokesman Jeff Hughes, officers received a report June 25 of a woman who had entered the Walmart, ate half of a cake and refused to pay for the other half.

Hughes said the woman was banned from the store by police for the theft.

Back in January, the story of the Pringles wine-guzzling suspect went viral.

In that case, which happened at another Wichita Falls Walmart, police received a call about a woman drinking wine from the Pringles can while riding on an electric shopping cart in the parking lot.

Walmart employees had requested officers ban the woman who reportedly made the parking lot ride for several hours starting around 6:30 a.m.

When officers arrived, they found the woman in a nearby restaurant and notified her that she had been barred from the Walmart location.

The story garnered national attention, with late night host Stephen Colbert mentioning the incident while drinking from a can of the chips and “The Late Show’s” Twitter account tweeting about it.

”Wine in a Pringles can lady, here’s to you!,” the tweet said.

Even Pringles got in on the action and posted a photo illustration of two Pringles cans with wine stems clinking on its Facebook page with the comment: “Toasting has never been so tasty.”

Toasting has never been so tasty.
