KROGER has discontinued an extremely popular product and bitterly disappointed buyers.
The retailer’s decision to drop its own brand Fruit Snacks came despite online demand for the item.
A buyer known as Stuart (@Bravos1487), said it was “bad news” that the treats had been shelved.
He added, “One of the few items where I feel private label was better than name brands.”
Customer Lauren Fishel (@the_ohFISHEL1) asked the supermarket giant if the goodies would be back after she couldn’t find them in the store.
Kroger replied, “Unfortunately, our Kroger fruit snacks have been discontinued, but we’ll let our leadership know you’d like us to bring them back. Thank you for reaching out!
The retailer acknowledged: “There is clearly a demand for our Kroger fruit snacks.
“We’re going to make sure our leadership knows that. We appreciate your feedback.”
