So fark hates McDonalds because it is unhealthy and shows no corporate responsibility to customers but hates whole foods because they attempt to ban unhealthy products and that shows that they are snobbish?   Pick one, you morons.

ransack.: I've never even seen one of these "Whole Foods" stores. What the hell does that even mean?

Think of Whole Foods as a Krogers were everything is labelled to show its pedigree.  "Organic Onions hand picked by Well Paid Laborers $10/lb"

Now, imagine Kroger customers moving slowly through the store asking you whether these beans can be used in a veggie chili that includes Thai spices.  And you would know the answer or at least be able to lie convincingly.

Lastly, imagine the check out lane at Kroger where the cashier scans a pint of milk and the display says "Milk-Pint $7.50" and the customer not screaming :"How can you do this to me?  I have to work three hours to pay for something like that!"  Instead, the customer says "Humph.  Daddy wants me to eat good.  I guess his credit card can take one more."

Whole Foods and Wally World carry different products? Color me shocked. It's almost like they are catering to different shoppers.

Short version:

Whole Foods has a limited selection, and probably doesn't carry what you really want to buy.

Eh, I think some of Whole Foods rules are arbitrary and nonsensical (such as no MSG, which is a perfectly acceptable ingredient in a lot of Asian food) but whatever, their store their rules.

I wish I had one nearby because they do carry a lot of specialty ingredients and high end products you won't find at Publix.

How do you know someone works/shops at Whole Foods?

Don't worry, they'll tell you.
