Where have the Classico ground tomatoes gone?
« on: April 30, 2013, 04:24:31 PM »
Has anyone else noticed that Walmart no longer seems to be stocking Classico ground tomatoes? Is it only in my area, or is this store wide? The Classico ground tomatoes are the clone of 6 in 1's minus the skins, I will miss them if they are gone! :'(

I love and use those too. Very small
Stock at my Walmart on the lowest shelf. I always buy about 5 cans at a time.

Over the past 3-4 months, both styles of Classico tomatoes have been coming through the outlet stores here in droves . That's never a good sign.

Sometimes it's just over-stock but more often then not it means a formula and label change or it's being discontinued. So check out any local $1 type stores to see if you can stock-up.

They have already done a label change, maybe the ground tomatoes haven't been restocked yet. Will keep on eye open in the outlet stores.

A Big Lots store near me has had a ton of the cans of Classico Tomato Sauce on its shelves, at $1 a can. From the ingredients list given at https://tomatoes.classico.com/products/, it looks like that product may make a decent pizza sauce.

As I have experienced before, Heinz wasn't much help. I emailed them asking about Classico peeled ground tomatoes at Walmarts and their answer was about Classico WHOLE peeled tomatoes. When I contacted them again to tell them of their error, they said the only store in my area that had placed a resent order for the Classico ground tomatoes was a store over 30 miles away. They said it had been over three months since that order was placed so I should call the store to injuire. Their advice was to "speak to a store manager" about ordering more. No mention of if they had discontinued the ground tomatoes, I suppose I should send them another email and ask that question but, I have several other brands of tomatoes that are better than theirs!
