I had bad experiences with dollar pineapples, they're often greenish and turn rotten brown later.

Produce is going to vary in quality from store to store and from day to day for any fruit or vegetable. I've gotten some from No Frills before that weren't sweet, but also some that if you wait about a week, are super-sweet. The No Frills pineapples are usually small. Sometimes, I pricematch at Walmart, and get ones that are double the size.

That happens with all of them. You have to eat it within the sweet spot.

I dont wanna make a whole thread but is 2.88 a pound of lean ground beef at food basics considered a good deal for ground beef?.

To the above poster, iv bought a couple of pineapples at no frills and all have been good so far.

I am in the produce wholesale business and purchase pineapples from Costa Rica from the grower and pay more than that direct from the farm, without adding freight and exchange !

I was shocked to see such a price ! They could be from Mexico, which is cheaper, and could explain some of the inconsistancies in quality some have found in the past.

If they are from Costa Rica, i would stock up ! The ONLY pineapple grown there is MD2 variety and is the MOST common variety sold in North America!

If the pineapple is green when I purchase it I usually leave it out for about a week. On sunny days I let the pineapple see some sun but putting it beside the kitchen window.

Not to say that there couldn't be stock substitutions, the flyer does say product of Costa Rica.

It's about as good as you're going to get. Some people might tell you that it's not a.good price because Costco has it about the same price. However, then sometimes, no one is able to show you a lower price. Anything below $3/lb for fresh lean ground beef is excellent as regular pricing is usually about double. In recent times, I can't rememeber this going below $2.77/lb.

Fruit is usually fine as long as no brand name is mentioned in the competitor's advertisement. They could use the different brand argument if there is a brand sticker on the produce in-store. They probably have that clause so that they have another possible reason to not price match. My experiences are that they often refuse to price match meat because Your Fresh Market (even though that is just Walmart) is a different "brand" than the competitor's no-name store packaged meat. I''ve been refused by Walmart because their chicken and pork is Maple Leaf, altbough I bet that many times, the competitor is using the same supplier.

NF near us, pineapples were product of Chile
these can be frozen, since President's Choice sells them for $4.99

It’s normal with Walmart ,
They price matched every advertised price and in case of produce , all are same in terms of quality.
They don’t need to match costarica vs Mexico .
Just pine apple or watermelon is ok!
Grab n enjoy!
