10 Walmart Foods You Should Absolutely Never Buy

10 Walmart Foods You Should Absolutely Never Buy


Walmart is a favorite place to do groceries
for anyone looking for discounted food prices. Their rollback prices set them apart from
other chains and they have a great variety of organic and non-organic food to buy, bushels
of veggies and carts of fruit. Walmart has everything you need under one
roof. Which sounds like a marketing slogan. But upon close inspection, it turns out that
not every food item sold there is cheap or even healthy. These are the 10 foods you should absolutely
never buy at Walmart. Organic Food Now a lot has been said about organic food
and whether it’s really healthier or tastier than non-organic food. But people’s appetite for organic food hasn’t
abated, and it’s more than just a fad. It’s been going strong for years and contributes
to over $40 billion to the grocery industry every year. So if you prefer to buy organic, you’re
not alone. Just try to find somewhere else to do your
organic food shopping than Walmart. Organic food is always more expensive than
its non-organic counterpart. This has to do with the short shelf life that
organic veggies and fruit have. Because neither chemical fertilizers nor pesticides
are used, the produce tends to perish quicker. So naturally, the price tag attached to each
item is a bit steeper than the tomatoes or eggplants which grew with the power of chemical
nutrients. But Walmart takes this a bit further than
other chains. Walmart tends to value its organic produce
higher than other stores such as Trader Joe’s or Aldi. Which brings up a question about the wisdom
behind these steep prices. Is it because Walmart appreciates organic
onion more than the other folks? Or is it because Walmart knows the time and
effort that goes into growing organic food in green farms and feels the need to pay those
organic farmers for their hard work? The answer, of course, is no and no. It’s all about increasing the profit margin
and capitalizing on something that people seem to relish and are willing to pay more
for. Namely, organic food. So you’re better off looking for your organic
tomatoes somewhere else. Non-organic Food You know everything we just said about organic
food? Well, guess what? It also applies to non-organic food. Yes, even the carrots with pesticides and
the milk that is probably loaded with antibiotics is also overpriced. But why, Walmart? Obviously, because it can. People just got used to going to the chain
to do their weekly shopping. And that includes buying groceries. There’s plenty to choose from, all the produce
is fresh, and the prices are reasonable. Or so it appears. Until you happen to visit a rival chain, stroll
down the fresh produce section and look at the prices there. It’s at that exact moment when you’ll
realize that Walmart has probably been overcharging you for carrots and onions for years. Not just with their high prices but also the
low quality of their food. Out of all 68 chains reviewed by Consumer
Report, Walmart always reserves a bottom place on the list. The report found that the food was not as
fresh as advertised and the quality of the vegetables, fruit, and meat was very low. So is it that Walmart food suppliers cheat
and provide sub-standard food? Or is the problem more complex? It turns out that the Walmart fresh produce
section has come as an afterthought. The section always faces understaffing problems. So staff from other sections fill in during
peak shopping hours. And when it’s not your section, you don’t
really care about the quality of the product you stock the shelves with. Pure Vanilla Extract Now that we’ve covered general fresh foods,
both organic and non-organic, let’s dive in your cart and see what other overpriced
items you’re about to take to the cashier. One of the first things to pop up is a bottle
of pure vanilla extract. Now this one has a price tag that is way higher
than you should pay for it. And we get it. All chains tend to use weekly flexible prices
on their items. It’s a proven strategy to increase business. Some days Costco will be promoting big price
cuts on dairy products and fresh meat. But what you may not know is that other products
carry that cut in prices to keep the chain from losing. So if the dairy products are 30% off that
day, that means that the fruits will get a few cents each to balance things out. And all this is normal and acceptable almost. We can’t always compare prices between chains
and go buy milk at Costco and veggies at Walmart. But what defies comprehension is that certain
items are always sold for a higher price at Walmart than other chains. One of those is the pure vanilla extract. For some reason, Walmart thinks this stuff
is being underestimated and undervalued by other chains and it needs to make up for that
oversight. But the truth is, you can always get pure
vanilla extract at almost half the price if you head over to Costco. So that’s another item you should not seek
at Walmart. Maple Syrup Maple Syrup. Canada’s gift to the world. Ask anyone who can’t start their day without
a couple of pancakes for breakfast about maple syrup and watch them wax lyrical. Their eyes grow languid and both passion and
yearning fill up their voices as they recite a litany of qualities that make this molten
gold so loved by millions of people. But as we all know, maple syrup isn’t cheap. The bottle is priced as if it’s full of
real liquid gold, not the juice of some leafy tree. Not that we’re complaining. We know it’s well worth every cent we pay
for it. Unless of course, we’re buying it from Walmart. Because then we’d be paying a few bucks
more than at other chains. Which really leaves the maple syrup lovers
with two options. The first is, go with a knock-off syrup that
tastes almost the same but doesn’t cost as much. I mean, the kids won’t know the difference
as they smother their waffles and pancakes with the stuff. We even heard that corn syrup does a good
job of masquerading as the real thing and no child is the wiser. Both Log Cabin and Aunt Jemima make some good
stuff that doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg. The other option is to shop for maple syrup
elsewhere other than Walmart. We hear that Costco doesn’t guard its maple
syrup with as much jealousy as Walmart, and will part with it for a fair price. Organic Milk OK, it’s time to look into organic milk
and how high Walmart values it. But first, we need to find out why organic
milk is always more pricey than normal milk. It’s not that the organic milk farmers are
trying to cash in on the organic food craze. Organic milk means raising fewer cows and
feeding them more expensive food. This means steering clear from genetically
modified food and milk them less often than other cows. This is why your organic milk tastes better. But it also comes at a price. The farmer produces less milk and sells to
Walmart at a relatively higher price than non-organic milk. Walmart turns around and slaps a hefty price
tag on the organic milk carton. And if you compare prices as you should between
different chains, you’ll find Walmart organic milk always on the pricey side. Aldi, for example, sells organic milk for
much less than Walmart. Even Whole Foods, notorious for its high prices,
still doesn’t put such a price tag on organic milk. Imported Farmed Shrimp Shrimp is delicious seafood that has found
its way into numerous recipes over time. Some processed food might contain shrimp even
if you don’t recognize the taste. Those finger-length crustaceans are packed
with protein and healthy nutrients. That is, assuming they grow in the wild seas
roaming free and eating their natural food. But that’s not the case with the huge bags
of imported shrimp that you find in Walmart and other retailers. They are cheap and loaded with lots of farmed
shrimp. Not just that, but they also come from Asian
and South American countries. Warm water shrimp is tastier than cold water
ones or so the foodies would have us believe. So what could go wrong with a cheap buy like
that? Apparently, everything. First off, these shrimp that grow in Thailand
farms involve child labor. Every time you buy one of those large bags
of frozen shrimp you’re paying someone who used children to work on their farms in unhealthy
conditions. But that’s not the whole story. Shrimp that comes from Latin America and also
Asia is not adequately supervised by health officials in these countries, which means
the shrimp might pose a risk to your health when you consume it. They include bacteria and traces of antibiotics,
which don’t rule each other out, and are not the kind of things you like to be placed
on a plate in front of you. Snack Food If you love snacks then you must have a field
day at Walmart. Their ‘Great Value’ packs offer a snacker
all they ever wanted. Inexpensive snacks that come in various shapes,
packages, and sizes, and you won’t burn a hole in your pocket when you fill up your
cart to the brim with the glossy packages. And who can blame you? The stuff is tasty and crunches just right
in your mouth when you’re binging on that Netflix series. So why are we against buying snacks from Walmart? Because you can get better deals at the dollar
stores. As usual, purchasing things from the large
retailer always comes at a cost. Even small things like snacks always get a
few cents added to the price tag. So from a purely financial perspective, you’ll
save a few bucks buying your snacks from dollar stores. But it’s not just the price tag. Dollar stores take snacks to extreme heights. That means you can find brands and flavors
you won’t find in the large chains. So the more time you spend browsing the more
snack gems you’re bound to find. And some of those exotic flavors are worth
a try or two. Big Burly This is Walmart’s answer to the eternal
question: what will I have for breakfast this morning? It doesn’t hurt to have something different
for breakfast every now and then, but when that breakfast is called Big Burly, you need
to think twice. The full name of the culprit is The Great
Value Big Burly Breakfast Sandwich. Now supposedly the ‘great value’ part
of the name is supposed to mean low cost, which is a great draw for customers. But what does ‘big burly’ stand for? We’ll need to look under the packaging to
find out. First, we’re faced with two slices of toast. In between, there’s over a half pound of
bacon, processed cheese, and fried eggs. That’s some serious heart-busting saturated
fat right there. And if you’re going to start your day with
this vicious attack on your heart, what will you be having for lunch? Concentrated cholesterol swirled in a glass
of melted lard? So it’s not about the price tag this time. This is purely for health reasons that you
should say no to this monstrosity. I mean even fast food chains have healthier
options for breakfast than this one. Low-cost Pork When a retailer grows so big and takes control
over a big chunk of the market, you know that at some point, prices will be laid on the
table and someone has to carry more than their fair share of the burden. In this case, Walmart lays its terms and the
pork farmers have to pay the price. In order to please its customers who expect
prices to be low in Walmart, the giant retailer forces the pork farmers to sell their pork
at a lower price. In fact, it’s so low that they barely make
any profit. But what can you do when you supply pork to
Walmart? It’s obviously not that easy to simply find
another buyer willing to purchase the tons of pork you produce every year. And these margins of profit have been declining
over the years. While this doesn’t affect the average customer
directly, it still affects the pork farmers drastically. Yes, we all want to get our hands on inexpensive
pork, but at what cost? Much has been said about some of Walmarts
buying practices and the relationship with their suppliers. One of the major complaints is that you play
by Walmart’s rules, or you don’t play at all. Ground Beef And finally, it’s time to turn our attention
to ground beef. We left this one for last simply because it’s
a popular purchase and on most people’s shopping list when passing the meat section. The Walmart ground beef is also the item that
most customers buy believing that they’re paying the cheapest out of all the retailers. Which couldn’t be further from the truth. As usual, it pays to compare prices between
retailers in order to know for sure if your favorite chain is offering the best price. In the case of ground beef, Walmart isn’t
the cheapest. Not by a long shot. With weekly specials that vary from different
retailer to retailer, the Walmart price can always be beaten, if you do your research. In fact, it has been reported that the Aldi
chains are always selling ground beef at lower prices. Sometimes one dollar less per pound. Which is a big savings if you buy a lot of
ground beef every week. I guess Smokey Robinson and the Miracles were

  2. Quit calling it organic food. It makes you sound stupid. All vegetables are organic. Even meat is organic. You need to say grown using organic materials and practices instead. Please describe it correctly.

  3. Walmart is where most people to go. I guess these people are pushing increase in minimum wage and hire illegal aliens

  4. I used to go to the dollar store to buy a Pepsi or Mountain dew bottle drink which I thought was awesome until one day I went in and learned Pepsi no longer sold its drinks at the $ store so I now have to to pay almost 2bucks for the same dang drink I would get for a buck at the $ store. Sucks.

  5. Every time I go into my Walmart, into the produce department, there's a bunch of tiny bugs flying around all the fruits and vegetables……… I won't even go in that department.

  6. I love shopping at Walmart but would never shop there for groceries it is very expensive. I prefer Wegmans for my groceries

  7. If I had to guess the produce price is most effected by the fact your average walmart shopper is more interested in Banquet meals than fresh produce….

  8. Walmart is generally the cheaper option and better quality produce in the last several big cities (Tampa, Colo spigs, Chicao, Waikiki) I've lived in

  9. You're absolutely wrong. Walmart or any retailer will not change their mark up for organic food. It costs more to produce it. They mark up like any other product. Who makes you an expert? You're a fucking idiot.

  10. Well if you have to shell out 50 bucks for a card just to walk thru the door at Costco they had better give you some good smack or the money!!!!!

  11. Wow…Obviously this Video has NEVER been shopping in Pensacola. Our Super Walmarts has the CHEAPEST prices on both Organic and Non Organic Fruits and Vegetables anywhere. Moral of the Story? Don't believe everything on the Internet like this video… You're Welcome JP

  12. Organic foods have to be grown in a STRICT COVERED GREENHOUSE PROTECTED FROM the harmful ACID RAINS COMING FROM POLLUTED RAIN CLOUDS CIRCLING THE WHOLE EARTH. There is NO PRISTINE PURE RAIN /SNOWS/Hails since before the INDUSTRIAL SMOKE COAL BURNING STACKS from FACTORYS EVERYWHERE EARTH WIDE GLOBAL saturation in forests oceans lakes Rivers / Rainforests Grass plains/ GRASS PASTURES/ WHEAT CROPS. /SOY CROPS/CORN CROPS ALL CONTAMINATED WORLD WIDE & LONGITUDE ETC. ..

    UNDER GROUND may be SAFER. GROWN IN CAVES: mushrooms!😃 COVERED FRUITS TREES. COVERED FRUIT/vegetables with seeds. Potatoes/CARROTS / beets/ etc. Think & EXPERIMENTS ON ALL OUR FOODS. MICROWAVE TESTS: SPARKS may fly & blow UP.
    BE ALERT. BE aware be on guard aboud where if day. Do alot of personal TESTS
    before. To test the FOODS.

  13. Shidddd I get my milk at Walmart for 1.30$ yep,that’s right..while stop n shop milk is 2.89$ my Walmart is cheaper then all the grocery stores..so this video is just wrong 🤷🏻‍♀️

  14. WOW JUST SAY COSTCO/ALDI IS JEALOUS OF WAL-MART. YES ALL THE MAJOR CHAINS ARE CHEATS.WHEN AMERICANS STOP BEING SPOILED AND LAZY ..THEY WILL GROW THEIR OWN FOODS..ONLY WAY TO BE SAFE..WHEN THE HOUSEHOLDS GO OLD SCHOOL OUR CHILDREN WILL BECOME HEALTHY AND ADULTS

  15. Something happen to me yesterday on Walmart 75 Ave but I’m going to come back to tell u guys because I have all pictures

  16. This adver-mercial brought to you by Costco, a retailer you can count on, and by Aldi's, because everyone wants to drive to the West Coast of the U.S., to save $2 on some ground beef.

  17. Costco tried it…hunnie goodbye…I didn't even waste my time viewing it to the end. Every time she said Wal-Mart she needs to put $1,000 in the swear jar…cus she swear she's doing the right thing!

  18. Very biased video. I shop at Kroger’s and Walmart to the tune of 250 bucks a week at Kroger and 75 at Walmart. Walmart by far has the best vegetables and fruit. I don’t buy organic except for carrots. Aldi’s may be good but I can’t see the travel time and expense to add that adventure to my schedule. Cosco, no way. In short, do a video that actually reflects or demonstrates real shoppers shopping for groceries.

  19. WINCO IS THE ONLY DECENT STORE, BALLFARTS, UNSAFEWAY, ALBUTTSONS ARE SHIT STORES WITH SHIT FOOD AND OVERPRICED GARBAGE, LET EM CLOSE, RAPE THE CHECKERS AND BURN DOWN THEIR STORES

  20. Well………we don't have a Costco or Auldi here in my neck of the woods. Walmart was heaven-sent in our small town. I would beg to differ you on several points in your video. I agree with several of your viewers below. This video is more about how great Costco is and less about how bad Walmart is. I'll keep shopping at Walmart — despite the risks.

  21. I disagree.
    Walmart milk was 1.70 half gallon in west leb NH in Dec 18
    Box and canned was cheaper, the entire store isn't always the best deal
    Sales and purge of nearly dayrd foods at grocery always the best.
    Walmart produce seems great
    The real maple syrup is ligit, but only small savings, I'm from VT and made syrup, around 100 gallons a yr. My kid knew if its fake, by 7yrs old, how dare you say crap tastes just as good.
    The meats aren't bad and ground beef has grades and Walmart doesn't cheat.
    20-80 isn't awesome but drain the fat then.
    Costco sux

  22. try a video about the food brokers and where all this stuff comes from. I worked the food distribution industry fo years you would be amazed at what you eat.

  23. If u were rich…why would u care? Also, that breakfast sandwich looks tasty! And why the meat sandwich shown if not mentioned?

  24. walmart has shit for produce ,not any cheaper then the competition. radishes especially are junk in my area , no organic section in my store. walmart has NO fresh meat ,all shipped in frozen from major packing houses

  25. Shop local and quit supporting the ultra-rich Walmart family who is awful to their employees and the environment. No real information in this video.

  26. I found out some time ago that Wal-Mart is much more expensive than other food stores so I don't usually go there looking for quality groceries at a reasonable price. The bottom line is don't go to Wal-Mart looking for a discount price on their food. Their food isn't the only thing they cheat you on and if the shoppers notice Wal-Mart have stopped selling more of other clothing brands in their stores and instead selling their brands produced in foreign countries which don't pay their workers a decent wage.

  27. I am through with Wally World. They let the government dictate what they can sell and I don't need to spend my money in a government controlled store.

  28. I shop at Main St. WALMART and ALDI'S in Spartanburg SC! Everything in every store concerning cleanliness and appearance has to do with the MANAGER!!! Both of these stores are the cleanest and most organized I've ever been in, the employees are the nicest, most helpful and cheerful of any I've ever been in!!! If you don't like what's going on in the stores you shop at call HEADQUARTERS AND COMPLAIN!!! All people need jobs to survive and only have a certain amount of money to spend. SO MANY cruel people with ignorant comments. Why are people so hurtful, unkind, and not giving a damn about each other. My dollars help all employees no matter where ever I shop. Not everyone can work everywhere but at least they are working. By the way no matter what you think about the child labor (we have babies and kids in cages to this very minute, eating peanut butter sandwiches considered a "meal") and no I'm not a Democrat so hush up! Don't buy the damn shrimp, very simple! Eat something else or go to a reasonably priced restaurant for a special occasion. Don't be so cruel to those that are trying to earn a living. Be kind to one another, there are people suffering all over the planet from storms and war. Think about those two words! We never know when devastation will come our way! God bless you…… all! 🙏🌷

  29. Grow it ya dam selves…it’s sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo,,EASY, EASY 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳

  30. Why can't you just list the stuff and save us all the dam drama, talk way too much. Plus aldi's stuff is cheaper but looks awful and the selection sucks.

  31. First I cant stand shack he is an idiot I use to work at wally world when sam was alive it was a good place to work. now the kids has it its nothing but greed we use to have insurance but that stop they use to share profits with us. That's gone the food was good that stop a friend of mine worked in the meat department. their meat in inject with water. and we use to have holidays off .that's gone I got written up 12 times because of over time.i used to work in the automotive department. we cant close the doors till 7 pm and people would wait till the last moment to get tires or what ever they wanted. We use to keep tips the coustmors would give you wall world sucks the reason the meat is a good price they buy the worst meat and it's bad meat at times .the kids just like money greed

  32. if organic means shorter shelf life doesnt that mean sellers would want to get rid of it fast??? so wouldnt the prices be lower to move organic food before it expires??? sounds reasonable. so why is it so high priced in general??? doesnt that mean its guaranteed to expire before its shelf life has passed???

  33. Back about 10-13 years ago, I saw my local WalMart grocery prices become unstable to the upside and lots of prices have become uncompetitive since then. Watch the prices you're charged at checkout. Very common for the shelf price to be lower than the "computer" price. I now consider Aldi's to be my primary grocery store.

  34. What The All I see is Wal-Mart..and Some of Cosco…some of this is Right I don't like Wal-Mart Vegetables,.. And Some of their prices are lower than shoprite and other store's…All these store's are competing against one Another…and a side Note….Don't Buy Tilapia fish you don't know what the Neck your Eating..

  35. so not true- I shop at ALL the mentioned places and about all this is a lie… other than low quality. and whats wrong with making profit?

  36. I shop at stores that are closer to where i live because of Gas you put in the car is not cheap . Aldi store is not close by where i live . So , i have never shop at Aldi store . I ratter shop at a place by & not wasted gas in a car to for save a buck or two , when gas is not cheap .
