Open Post: Hosted By Whole Foods’ Ridiculous Pre-Peeled Oranges

March 4, 2016 / Posted by:

Whole Paycheck is at it again. They’ve been in trouble for regularly overcharging and for selling $6 artisanalasparagus water (which was just 3 pieces of asparagus in a thing of water), and now they’re getting shit on by Twitter and beyond for selling already-peeled oranges in plastic containers. The savior to the environment, Leonardo DiCatchAHo, is totally writing them a really mean letter on the back of one of his skinny blonde model pieces while chilling on a yacht.

The picture above was taken and posted on Twitter by Whole Foods shopper Nathalie Gordon and she added the note: “If only nature would find a way to cover these oranges so we didn’t need to waste so much plastic on them.”

Nathalie’s tweet was re-tweeted tens of thousands of times and it eventually got back to Whole Foods. Whole Foods made a bunch of lazy richies cry over the thought of doing hard labor by peeling oranges themselves when announced that they yanked that shit off of shelves. They also released this statement:

“A lot of our customers love the convenience of our cut produce offerings, but this was a simple case where a handful of stores experimented with a seasonal product spotlight that wasn’t fully thought through. We’re glad some customers pointed it out so we could take a closer look.”

I have a feeling that Whole Foods just lost a major customer. Whenever Goopy Paltrow gets a craving for an orange, she makes her maid peel one for her while wearing $45 disposable organic gloves that were made from the oldest rubber tree in Malaysia. But whenever her maid calls in sick and she gets an orange craving, she just went to Whole Foods and bought one of their pre-peeled oranges. Now what is she going to do?! She can’t possibly peel it herself. Why doesn’t anybody ever think about the needs of Goopy?!!!
