NJ Supermarket and Retail News Chat Vlog – April 2020
Welcome to the NJroute22.com VLOG about various updates at area Supermarkets and Retail shopping venues (for April 2020).
In today’s episode, we talk about:
- Downright ridiculous. Hershey Kisses cereal? Over 240 grams of carbs per tiny box. At what point will peddling this garbage to kids be considered criminal?
- Pay attention to deals. You could have picked up this great 250-piece box of “blocks” for kids for only $14.99. Sells for over $50 on Amazon.
- Ridiculous #2: The big promotion at ShopRite recently was “free pickup!” if you spend over $99 on their mobile ordering app. Does anyone else see the nonsense with this? Isn’t it free pickup already when you go shopping there?
- Another head-scratcher is this section where they promote “kickstarting” your day with sugary yogurts out the wazoo. About the only think you’ll be kickstarting is your massive diabetes file with your primary care physician (who will be smiling about the added business.)
See you next month with another update!
