Well, maybe we're wrong!!
I just returned home from Walmart with 16, that's right, 16 cans of Classico crushed tomatoes! Maybe they aren't going away after all, maybe Wallyworld is just restocking. I don't know what's going on, but I bought ever can on the shelf. Still $1. ;D
Great news Dave...thanks for the update/report!  :chef:
On my way right now.....

While I was in Wal-Mart again today, I decided to check out their canned tomaotoes section to see if they replenished the Classico canned tomatoes after I pretty much cleaned out the Classicos on my last visit. The answer is yes. They actually had a pretty good supply of the Classico crushed tomatoes and the whole tomatoes. And they were marked down to $1 a can from $1.78. The Classicos weren't given the best locations on their shelves but someone willing to bend down a bit could find them. It will be interesting to see where Wal-Mart goes from here once their current inventory is exhausted. The jury is still out.

Pete, that's exactly my finding, way down on the bottom shelf, thought I was gonna throw a hip out of joint trying get the ones way in the back. Maybe they just are restocking, who knows? My local Walmart has a habit of running out of stuff and not restocking it in any great hurry. I buy Dragone mozzarella cheese there, apparently a case of it only contains 6 blocks, because that's the most I ever see stocked on the shelf. If I see some I grab it, because it won't be there for long, and it won't be stocked again for at least a week!

Just for the hell of it I checked Walmart again yesterday to see if the Classico crushed were still being stocked. I cleaned then out a couple of weeks ago, bought all 16 cans that were on the shelf. They have not been restocked as of now, and it looked as though the supply of whole tomatoes and tomato puree were also dwindling. If anyone sees something different, please keep us posted.

Dave,

I was at my local Walmart recently, and all of the cans with the crushed Classico tomatoes were gone. There were some cans of the Classico whole tomatoes remaining, however. The $1 signs were still there.

Yeah, I was in yesterday and the Classico crushed are once again in stock and still sale priced at a buck a can. All the Classico canned products were there EXCEPT the ground tomatoes, the tomatoes that are the clone of 6 in 1's. In think that perhaps Heinz has pulled the ground tomatoes so as not to compete with their Escalon division, just my own thought, if anyone knows more, please let us know.

I bought a couple cans of the Classico whole peeled pear tomatoes at Walmart today ($1). Very very dark red color and extremely caramelly-rich. They tasted like they had molasses in them. I didn't particularly care for the taste. They didn't have any of the crushed - just the whole pear. 
I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

I was at Walmart two days ago, no crushed, just pear tomatoes.  Didn't even see an empty spot on the shelf where they would've been.

There were about 20 of the 28 ounce cans of the Classico crushed tomatoes on the shelf at one of the Walmart stores I checked today.  Frankford and Marsh, in North Dallas. 

I've never tried them before, so I have no idea what they're like, but I went ahead and bought a few cans.  I hope they are as good as the Cento crushed tomatoes that I normally buy.  I noticed that the Classico crushed tomatoes have tomato puree and salt added, whereas the Cento has just crushed tomato with no other ingredients.

I was at a Big Lots store in Harrisburg today and all they carried was the Classico Tomato Sauce at 1.00 a can.

Picked up 9 cans of the Classico crushed tomatoes in Leland NC, just outside of Wilmington.
Only one can was dented. Still on the bottom shelf and still only a buck!

at the store near me they are being stocked again on a fairly regular routine, unfortunately, the ground tomatoes are no longer to be found.

Same thing here in NC. Beats a blank.
