WAY! Not only do they have the Petit Ecolier, they have the Extra Dark (70%) kind! It was in one of the food aisles for organic or speciality foods (something like that). I'm in Orange County, CA if it matters. This aisle also had Basmati rice and some other stuff that I never thought Walmart would carry. This isn't your father's Walmart! That being said, remember I said that they were a little stale?

BTW, Trader Joe's also carries the Petit Ecolier, but they don't carry the Extra Dark.

I went into a much newer Wal-Mart today.... I was surprised...

It looked nice!! A lot of natural light... wide aisles... seems that the stock was displayed nicely instead of thrown around....

I guess it is which one you happen to visit that makes a difference... this one was close to upscale homes... so the riff raff were not seen...

Are you saying that your cheapness overwhelms your sense of good taste?

There are a few garden items I haven't found anywhere else in generic formula unless I get farm-size quantities from Southern States or go to the county co-op several miles away. Plus I can go in the side door and use the garden center check-out......less likely to be seen at Walmo
