Instacart delivers after twin daughters almost make an $800 purchase
A pair of 6-year-old twins almost ordered $800 worth of snacks on a retail app that offers grocery delivery and pickup services.
Jessica Aiwuyor shared her experience on Twitter of her twin daughters, Efosa and Esosa, almost purchasing a snack run with a subtotal of $757.57, according to Today.
"My six-year-old twins almost purchased close to $800 worth of snacks using my Instacart app," the surprised mother tweeted.
The twins added a number of food and drink items to their cart including 35 boxes of Capri Sun Fruit Punch—which alone was worth over $300—Smartfood popcorn, and 28 bags of chips, including Lay’s Barbecue, Sour Cream and Doritos.

The girl's snack plans were foiled when attempting to navigate through checkout.
"They almost completed the purchase but couldn’t figure out the last few steps," Aiwuyor continued, writing, "I serve a living God!"

"The chip quantities check out," tweeted another. They continued, "That stuff has to last and you can’t eat just one. The planning!"
However, one reply garnered much attention.
"Let’s make this wishlist a reality. Check your DM’s," Instacart tweeted.

While the twins and their mother are thankful for the order, Aiwuyor let her girls know this would be the last time. "They were very thankful," she said. "But I told them, ‘Never again, you cannot do this again. Not every company is going to respond this way, and they will be expecting mommy and daddy to pay for whatever it is you order. So do not do this again.'"
