Walmart Veggies are Better than Whole Foods

I've never really understood the hate of Walmart. Sure, some of the stuff they sell isn't the best quality, but much of it is just as good, if not better, than products you'll find elsewhere. And you can rarely beat their prices. They bring a lot of low-priced essentials to a lot of families who have to stretch budgets very thin. Not everyone can afford to shop at Nordstroms and Whole Foods.

So imagine the surprise of some culinary snobs when a blind taste-test revealed that organic veggies bought from Walmart tasted better than the grossly over-priced equivalent from Whole Foods.

Despite this test, I just don't see Top Chef taking the contestants to Walmart for their food.
