Welcome back Francesca, I have missed you here in this thread and assumed you were wally docking with no WiFi.

I am starting a trip shortly and I plan on providing coverage for small sections of Walmart Parking lots where and when ever I can.

How about a guy on a Segway in front of a Walmart sign with a WM chicken box.

The only thing Sadie would be holding would be a WM chicken bone.

If you ever go down US 69/75 in Texas from the OK border, you can see the beef cutting/packing plant on the right, just south of Sherman. It's says "Tyson" on it. I think that plant's entire output is for Walmart and Sam's.

The beef was better, stayed fresher, lasted longer in the refrigerator, and looked better when it was packed under carbon monoxide...but boy, is that another discussion!

One of my real complaints about food packaging is that it is exempt from the labeling laws requiring the country of manufacture to be on the packaging.

I wonder if those rotisserie chickens are Tyson chickens? If there's a McDonald's in the store, the chicken served there is from Tyson, too.

Heh, I stay the heck away from Tyson products, personally, they've really done their best to be the bottom of the barrel in terms of quality, especially when you can say Banquet products are better.

I used to laugh when Tyson delivered the chicken to the KFC across the street from where I worked. It was the dead of night and other than the occasional traffic, all you could hear was kapow as the boxes hit the pavement over and over.

Well, at least it wasn't the "splat" of chicken hitting the pavement.

Frozen chicken doesn't go splat when it hits the ground, it makes that kapow sound , frozen sides of beef do likewise when packed in cardboard shipping crates.

I just assumed that Wal Mart chicken comes from America.

Do you know what they call Chinese chicken?

Yes, that's one of the dirty little secrets in the food service industry. All the comptetitors get their chicken from Tyson.

Just as almost every non-fast-food restaurant gets a significant portion of its supplies from Sysco.

My mother was the basic skeptic when it came to anything at a grocery store. Of course, she grew up on her father's farm, so she knew what fresh milk was; she swore all chocolate milk at the stores was made from milk rejected for being not "white" enough. On the other hand, her brother almost died from "undulent fever," the term at that time for brucellosis. He got it from milk from their own cows. So much for home-grown purity.

I wish every food was labeled with its origin, but its not.

I guess I'm missing something, but who cares if Tyson provides the chicken? Is the implication that Tyson is not providing a good product?

And...I'm just asking in case I'm camped at Walmart and don't want Tyson chicken.
