There’s “Whole Foods” and Then There’s Whole Foods

…who should be left alone.

…”When you’re tampering with the family jewels for [the first time in] 150 years,” Green says, “we expected some fallout. I don’t think we expected it to be quite what it was.”

Necco learns an expensive lesson [ “…After sales dropped by around 35 percent…“] about better living through chemicals.

    The chocolate Neccos were my favorite. Haven’t had one for decades… 🙁

    I’ve not only never had necco wafers, I’ve never even heard of them until today.

    Still, I’m right there with the outrage. I still resent the loss of red dye #2 M&Ms – now replaced with INSECT dye!! – and resent those interloper blue ones.

    Chocolate are completely my favorite, George. I was always pissed there were like, only, two or three in a roll. Gross distributive injustice.

    (Our little childhood sweet shop didn’t carry the chocolate rolls. Those were a revelation.)

    Alice, darling ~ you’ve missed a rare treat. Remedy that immediately! (Stay away from the black ones!!!)

  5. Mr. Bingley says:

    Gosh I hate when the family jewels are tampered with!

  6. JeffS says:

    Going organic messed up sales. Imagine that.

  7. major dad says:

    The black ones are the best!

  8. Alice says:

    THS – I’m afraid I am doomed to live with my failure since as far as I can tell, they are not carried in any store within 40 miles of me.

    Bingbing, I don’t think your bloggists realise that “The Family Jewels” in Australia refer to the human appendages that are also known as “The Wedding Tackle.”

  10. Skyler says:

    I would have been your best friend, THS, because the chocolates were the ones I didn’t like.

    Winston, it’s the same meaning in the US.

    Winston, I don’t think anyone here missed the double entendre.

  12. JeffS says:

    Winston, “The Family Jewels” means the same thing to us Seppos. We were just being kind to the Bingster and his personal priorities.

    Love Necco’s. There’s a store here in Houston called Candylicious that carries (well, ok they used to carry – haven’t been there in awhile) rolls of all-chocolate Necco wafers. Heaven!
