    What did Coles say when you asked them?

      They only reply with canned responses when asked questions like these.

        Canned.
        Can.
        Trash Can.
        Trash Can where Pop Tarts belong
        Trash Canned.

        Very fitting.

        It seems strange that Australia's foremost bargains website would be more helpful answering queries about the product lines that Coles stocks than Coles.

          That's how forums work. You must be new here. If you look at the rest of the thread, you will see some people actually posted useful information instead of "LOL I DUNNO XDDDD" which is what you are doing.

          You are not contributing anything to a thread by just posting "idk" in various forms.

            @Question: Coming soon to an OzBargain forum near you!! Many topics you can contribute to instead of saying "LOL I DUNNO XDDDD" such as

            • Why doesn't Kmart sell bonds?
            • Why doesn't Harvey Norman sell kogan tvs?
            • Why doesn't McDonalds sell seal furs?
            • Why doesn't Aliexpress sell tunnel boring machines?

    I guess it's because 'Pop-Tarts' are an overly-processed/hyped 'yester-decade fad' that everyone (in Australia at least) eventually realised was not anything they could commit to in the 'long term. My guess is that Aussies prefer toast. Call me simple.

    Just because it's not on their website doesn't actually mean they don't have it.
    Several products that I buy never appeared on their website for some reason.

    I asked them about one of them I got if you provide the stores item number.
    Then a bunch of other things including a picture of the product on the shelf we may add it to the website. I thought for the effort meh. It isn't my job to do all this stuff and then give them money.

    I just looked up pop tarts on my local coles online shopping site and they sell pop tarts!

    400g Unit Price $1.25 per 100G
    Add 1 for $5
    "Kellogg's Pop Tarts Frosted Chocolate flavour toaster pastries are a great breakfast food and warm snack! Pop Tarts taste best warmed up in the toaster!"

    So maybe it's just a case of it wasn't added to your local store for some reason. :)

      What postal code are you using to see that on coles?

          I contacted Coles and asked if they could order in pop tarts. Very canned response :

          "Unfortunately this product is not available at the moment at your nearest online store; I have passed on your feedback to our merchandise team for consideration. We cannot order in from a different store.

          Our Merchandise Team constantly reviews our range to ensure we are offering our customers the appropriate choice of products. Regrettably, we are unable to stock every item that our customers require; however, we do endeavor to provide an excellent range and choice at all times."

    Coles carries alot less range than Woolies. They undertook an excersise to reduce the breadth and depth of their range.. the tail so to speak.

  •  

    You can always contact Coles (there’s a form online) if you want a product at your local store. I’ve seen stuff at other stores that aren’t at mine and have contacted them a few times. About a month later it’s available at my local.

      Good to know, always wanted to know if anything eventuates from this

    •  

      In the past when I tried that, I just got generic responses saying they do not stock some items due to availability or some such. But I guess I could try it again.

    They decided that iced vovos were a healthier alternative.

    Butch Coolidge bought them all.

    Are these still marketed as a breakfast meal like a long time ago?

    Just take a look at what Aldi are doing to compete with Coolwoles. Less choice. It is working. Aldi have taken a huge chunk out of sales.

    The majors are starting to remove product lines. You will notice more and more products removed to reduce costs. It's a great opportunity for online only retailers, like Amazon, to offer the long tail products.

      They are cutting down on similar products, thats not whats happening with pop tarts lol.

      Aldi is getting customers because they have a lot of good stuff on for cheap, those faux european brand sausages they carry are amazing and totally blow coles/woolies sausages out of the water for example.

    Back in my day they sold the apple cinnamon flavour, without frosting/icing. The good old days.
