Ari Ofsevit couldn't believe his eyes at the River Street Whole Foods in Cambridge today.

That's it, I'm taking my business elsewhere. Luckily there are 3 other wal-foods in walking distance. They are like the blockbuster of gourmet groceries

There could be labels with the old baseball team New York Giants !

"You can't honestly expect us to print up special packaging just for Boston! We make way more money in the NY/NJ area so deal with it. Oh, #BostonStrong if that will shut you up."

"We are all about the Sox but we packaged these with Yankee designs anyway. You know, all about the Sox. Yeah."

I am guessing the people that shop at that Whole foods either:

1) Don't care about the Sox at all
2) Are casual baseball fans and don't care about the yankees
3) from NY/NJ.

now if this happened in a stop and shop in braintree, natick or new hampshire then a small riot would break out.....boston and cambridge...not so much.

And that is why Boston and Cambridge are great places to live.

Go Jays! (the last AL East team to win a WS without the help of roided up players!)

used to do a big display during baseball season, with one side of the display carrying Red Sox peanuts and the other side of the display carrying Yankees peanuts.

Given their location next to the local universities, I thought it was quite the savvy business move.

Isn't known for its blue collar baseball fans so I'm sure nobody is really that upset.

Now if some how a non fair trade bag of coffee landed on the selves, we'd have riots.

I've seen these in my local Stop & Shop, but in a display with a majority of other bags marked Red Sox. I always assumed it was some sort of intelligence testing secretly being done among shoppers.

Every so often the supermarket would get store-brand milk deliveries with the labels from competing supermarkets. I would point it out to the manager who would sigh and tell me to just stock the shelves. The barcodes were the same so it wouldn't matter.

Distribution is a bitch.

First place peanuts, or last place peanuts? ;)

Massively expensive peanuts that don't taste good, or moderately pricey peanuts that are occasionally very tasty?

only about .38 cents cheaper these days, and you end up just wanting to throw half of them away after spending all that money on them anyway. The massively expensive ones may not be as flashy or have cute little monsters on the package, but at least you always know what you're getting and they never leave a bad taste in your mouth.

Though in all fairness, it's kinda hard to eat peanuts when you're wearing 27 rings anyway.

At least those peanuts would be twice as big...

Twice as small. Steroids shrink your nuts.

That dawned on me right after I posted, but I figured I'd wait and let someone else correct me.
