They’re Baaaack!

There’s nothing I hate more than when my shopping routine is disrupted because a product I buy all the time is taken away. Apparently, lots of other customers feel the same way, and Walmart has taken notice. In keeping with its commitment to help their customers save money, the retailer is bringing back 9000 products they used to have on their shelves. Check out this short video I made showing some of the returning products in my local store:’

It’s hard to imagine that so many products that customers have missed will be returned, but I know there are more than a few that I hope will find their way back:

Organic tomato sauce & ketchup: Let’s face it — I’m a lazy cook. And every time I’ve attempted to make my own tomato sauce, it has tasted terrible. Please bring back organic tomato sauce, and start carrying organic ketchup free of high-fructose corn syrup while you’re at it.

Organic canned corn: Again, I’m lazy. And I’m also not a fan of genetically modified corn (which most of it is). So I’d love the see the organic canned corn I used to buy at Walmart make a return.

Organic kids’ clothes: For the past year or two, most of the new kids’ clothing from Faded Glory was made mostly of organic cotton (generally at least 75%). But slowly, I’ve noticed that the line is switching back to conventional cotton. I hope that organic cotton is making its way back.

Soy candles: While Glade does make a soy-blend candle, it is mostly paraffin (which is made from petroleum). I’d love to see 100% soy wax candles return.

Recycled plastic storage bins: My family probably has enough plastic storage bins to last us a lifetime, but for those who have to buy them, please bring back the recycled plastic storage bins that were introduced for Earth Month a few years back.

So if you’re like me and you’re missing the items you used to buy all the time, there’s a good chance that you may start seeing it on store shelves again pretty soon.
