* SpiritualSuccessor: Creator/FoodNetwork's ''Guy's Grocery Games'' takes several elements from ''Supermarket Sweep'', particularly the idea of being set in a giant grocery store set, and a similar bonus round. However, it is primarily a cooking competition, where the contestants actually have to ''use'' the items in the store rather than just throw them in a cart and call it a day.

* GameBreaker: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JphpCpCRTBM In a 2016 Youtube video,]] former host David Ruprecht revealed a strategy that few people used, and those that did used it won the sweep. After grabbing 5 Hams and 5 Turkeys, a contestant would have to go and pickup 5 hair coloring products, and 5 health and beauty products. This combination would ensure a guaranteed win.

* NightmareFuel: In 2016, former host David Ruprecht [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JphpCpCRTBM revealed in a Youtube video]] behind the secrets of Supermarket Sweep. When asked if the contestants got to keep the food, Ruprecht would reply "no." And with good reason: not only the meats were all fake, but much of the products on the shelves were going bad. Since they only filmed for around half a year, much of the products was reused over and over and over again. By the third month, hot dogs began to ferment and balloon in it's packaging, and some products began to show the abuse of being manhandled and thrown into carts repeatedly.
