bulk foods sections in grocery stores.

my job takes me to various grocery stores every day. kroger's, meijer's, walmart's and then some local western michigan chains such as felpausch and L&L. now it seems like meijer's (MI, OH, IN) mainly has the selection of bulk candy and stuff but sometimes you'll see other stores with giant ass boxes of loose reese's cups and what not. when i go in the store to take care of my beer, i pilfer some of these. should i feel bad?

If pilfer = stealing, you tell me how you should feel.

I'm bad then cuz I used to work for a grocery store and snacked on stuff all the time
I would think almost everyone has taken a piece of candy from those bulk bins at one point or another.

i guess it's no different than munching on grapes....i see ppl do that all the time....kinda pisses me off (the grapes thing) if they aren't going to buy the fookin grapes....and they're sticking their fingers all over them...of which i wonder where the fook those fingers have been. just imagine

but it's up to you how you feel....we shouldn't have to tell you. lol.
i personally wouldn't do it.

Meijer is the greatest thing since the grocery store was invented! (Have you ever been to the Meijer on 28th and Kalamazoo in Grand Rapids? I pratically grew up there!).

Just take one candy at a time from each bin and say you're "testing" it

EDIT: at some Meijers, you weight and put the price sticker on the candy yourself. I try and hold it off a bit, so it weighs less, but this is an art b/c the candy has to be steady for a bit before it lets you print the label.

Meijer's scares me...but I am a target boy.

Depends on what beer company you solicit for!

I was just about to say that.


I used to work for a Farmer Jack and did the same thing.

I had a summer job working for a grocery store a few years back, and you could get fired for eating one piece of candy from the display, or eating a piece of fruit that had been taken off sale and left in the store room.

So while it's not exactly the worst crime, I would say it's probably not such a great idea.

Why? I hear the walmart thing over and over. Yet people seem to prefer lower prices on their goods....

I don't want to sound like a snob, but I don't buy from those bulk bins. I don't trust the way they sit out exposed while people put their hands through them, maybe just after blowing their noses or whatnot. There are usually scoops available but a lot of people don't use them. I confess to being a grape tester, I don't want to buy a whole bunch if they're sour so I try one first. Same with cherries and strawberries. If only I could do that with beer! Walk into a beer store "I don't know if I want the whole case, let me try a bottle first. Okay, not quite what I'm looking for, let me try another brand"

can't believe i spelled 'em wrong.

but yeah, the meijer on 28th and kalamazoo, my aunt has worked there for like thirty years. i think she's in customer service now.

as for bulk food, i always figure they allot a certain amount to be *tested* by individuals.
