*side question* what's the difference between normal and red tipped bananas?
Red Tipped were brought in to state they a certified organic. Now everyone has them and just slip a few extra bucks the certifers way But yes, they are creamier and meant to have a longer shelf life, which just contradicts the "organic" claim!
They are meant to be better for the environment too. Meant to be.....
I don't actively boycott them, but have better places to shop for most things.
The main thing I get from the majors these days is sanitary products for my daughters. Everything else, I have somewhere I would prefer to buy it.
(I will however go to the majors when caught short and I need to grab something quickly.)
I go to specialist butchers, bakers, and fruit markets, and purchase the majority of my "grocery" items from the Golden Circle factory outlet. I also have a few specifics that I pick up from Aldi - icecream, cereal, lasagne, spreadable butter, honey (and used to also get bacon at $5/kg but that seems to be discontinued).
Yes its a win for consumers, but at what cost? A farmer and his family starving?
