Wegman's Complaints

Enigma3 | May 13, 2014 04:55 PM

I like Wegman's. Been shopping there for years. However I do not like some recent trends I have seen there. Two specific complaints:

1. My Tops was out of Fage plain yogurt 2%. So off to Wegmans I go. First thing I noticed - no Fage. Lots of in house Wegmans brand but not my favorite yogurt. So I look and look and finally fine "Wegmans Super Yogurt pre&probiotic blended plain lowfat yogurt". Then I read the ingredient label - second ingredient listed is "organic sugar". Way to take a good product and ruin it. Mox nix how many healthy ingredients are in it, the sugar makes it useless to me. Fage 2% plain has no sugar. So I will wait for Tops to restock.

2. They have really dumbed down their bread recipes lately. I used to like the pani champagne and sourdough. Not any more. Way too much all purpose flour and not enough high gluten flour. Remember the days of Parisian sourdough? High gluten and a fantastic taste. There is no "pull" to their bread anymore. And don't bring up the gluten free crud. Good bread needs high gluten flour. Like good french bread.

There's a lot to like about Wegman's. Just not these two things.
