What is going on with the bananas?!?! Tidal Creek has always carried the best bananas and now, you too, seemed to have embraced the corporate owned bananas for your regular inventory. DelMonte/Chiquita supposedly “organic” bananas are AWFUL, simply awful. I am very disappointed to find these in a co-op, especially as the new main stock it seems. Please, please, please reconsider restocking to your original bananas.
Some bananas are better than others. It is always my preference to purchase the Cerro bananas, but they are only available from one of our distributors, Albert’s Organics. These bananas are sold exclusively to Albert’s, so it is only possible for me to get them on a few of our orders a week. This means that some days I have to purchase from the larger companies to fill in the gap, but mostly we carry the Cerro bananas. Recently Albert’s had a shortage of these bananas and has moved to Del Monte as the alternative. But, as the supply comes back, we will move to ordering only Cerro bananas from Albert’s again.
Thanks for the prompt response regarding Cerros bananas. I apologize for freaking out and impetuously emailing a complaint, without taking a wait-and-see approach. At the time, I had been experiencing the same issue with the shortage elsewhere and I was afraid it was all some sort of big corporation issue. Anyways, I’ve been more than ecstatic to find Cerros consistently back in stock at Tidal Creek (and elsewhere, but I’m partial to shopping at TC!)…Thank you again for taking the time to respond and explain; very professional, and very cool! This is a perfect example of why Tidal Creek is one of my favorite places to shop in the region.
Lundberg Farms organic rice crackers… it’s a new product you should carry.
Lundberg is a fantastic company! We will look into this product when it becomes available.
I recently purchased Rapunzel Bouillon cubes and found yeast extract as the first ingredient. I was recently advised by my wellness consultant to totally avoid yeast extract as it is another name for MSG…
Thanks for the info. As an option, try the Better Than Bouillon brand. Not all yeast extract is MSG. We are working on communication with Rapunzel on this issue.
I notice lately that there is no Amy’s Lo Salt Shepherd’s Pie. There are very few lo salt products in the store.
This product is no longer available for us. Check the frozen area for new low salt items.
Gluten free cereal… Nature’s Path.
Lots of new cereals on Aisle 1!
Please, please can you get organic mayonnaise by Spectrum? I like eggs in my mayo, lol!
As of January it’s on the shelf. Thanks for the suggestion!
