Kewpie Mayonnaise 1kg $7.50 @ Coles (Select Stores)

880

Seen in Coles Toowoomba Northpoint. It’s not on their web site so I’m guessing it’s a promotional deal and may not be national. If you’re a fan of Kewpie (and I don’t know many people who aren’t) this is great value considering the normal price for 300g is $4.90.

Heaps of stock on the shelf as of 5pm this arvo.

    Coles bought some supersized products around a month ago and are struggling to clear them off the shelves (at least at my local Coles).

      It’s part of the seasonal promotional range, the changeover will be on Monday and Tuesday. So all of this stuff will drop in price on those two days (depending on when the plannogram is implemented) - as it’s seasonal stock and will become clearance once the new plannogram is implemented. How low the price goes will depend on the store, some reduce the prices more than others.

      Source: am merchandiser and implement these plannograms, don’t work directly for Coles however.

        Plannogram.

          Yes, Planogram
          Planogram strategies are in play when retailers arrange related products within reach of each other. In such cases, planogram designs serve as in-store marketing tools that inadvertently encourage shoppers to buy several related items at one time. As surroundedbymaniacs did
          Product suppliers pay close attention to planograms because they know product placement affects sales.

            @Infidel: Sounds more advertent than inadvertent.

            •  

              @fdawg: Deliberately advertent (intentional) for the retailer to boost sales. Designed for inadvertent browsers to find & buy.

              But inadvertent for the consumer who unintentionally "discovers" the temptingly grouped bargains, as surroundedbymaniacs did😉

              It's always good to have an insight into the strategies used to sell to us. A client was a Rep for Unilever selling to Coles & Woolies - I got paid to learn from her! But she never introduced me to the Planogram!

              @Lorindor: I guessed that (unusual & interesting looking / sounding word - at least that's how I saw it). That's why I repeated it in my comment😉

              But I wasn't sure I understood its use. Seeing your comment, prompted me to Google, learn & share👍

              Must drop it into conversation next time I'm at a supermarket😀

    I've seen this in my local store but didn't buy it as I often make my own mayo. However, I did buy a 5kg Barilla penne bag for $6, a 5kg Barilla spaghetti bag for $6 and two 2kg San Remo couscous for $3 each. Oh, and five 1kg San Remo fettucine nests for $1.40 each. Need to buy some large airtight tubs. They were in a separate aisle with some other random odds and ends. Only two bags of penne left which are probably sold.

    Oh, long expiry on everything ~2021.

      I use them to fill triple tip squeeze bottles, the ones sold in Daiso that look like this. Lets you squeeze out perfectly thin, uniform and parallel streams for sandwiches, okonomiyaki, etc.

    Was initially for Mother's Day, internally it's known as "flex" stock.

      ‘Winter Warmers’ actually. The Mother’s Day Flex was the one before it. The Winter Warmers Flex had all of the large, ‘upsized’, 1kg+ products. It’s transitioned into the Entertainment Flex now with all those DVD boxes.

              @jv: By definition , that's not an allergic response to MSG. Sensitivity to foods is not an allergy. If you've been rushed to hospital near death with anaphylaxis from an allergy as I have - you're know the difference.

              True allergies, like pollen or pet allergies, are IgE-mediated (an antibody in your immune system - shown in elevated allergen-specific IgE antibody test). A sensitivity to MSG is not. It can seem like an allergy because symptoms arise after exposure to the offending ingredient. But without IgE involvement the reaction can’t be called a true allergy. https://www.everydayhealth.com/allergy/does-msg-allergy-real...

              MSG has been shown in repeated studies not to cause allergic responses.

              Asthma is complex. It can be life threatening. Many things can trigger asthma.
              There's been plenty of quality research into this area.

              Consider this study: frequent coincidence of asthma and psychosomatic diseases and the distinct influence of stress and strong emotions on causing asthma exacerbations, proven in this study, confirm that asthma may be considered as the psychosomatic disease

              That is, it's onset can be psychosomatic. Once having onset of asthma after consuming a food believed to contain MSG etc, the person may stress when again being in that situation, resulting in another onset. So the person avoids that substance & they don't have the onset - so believe that "proves" they are "allergic" to the substance… (I've heard that so many times with various illnesses!)

              Unfortunate for the person😢
              There's MSG naturally in so many lovely foods!
              Better to learn about your asthma, seek professional advice & support, ways of coping with stresses & beliefs that may trigger an attack using techniques like CBT, etc.

              I think know I'm "allergic" to hard work (terrible symptoms of heavy sweating, aching muscles, shortness of breath, fatigue, etc) & feel much better avoiding it - case proven. I'll never work hard again😀

                @Infidel:

                that's not an allergic response to MSG.

                It is if it triggers the allergy.

                    Dr jv

                    Not a 'medical' doctor, but it it's just common sense that if something triggers an allergic reaction, then you are allergic to it and best to avoid it.

                      @jv: As in other differences we've had - your "common sense" interpretation is the issue here. Better to spend a while understanding what allergies actually are.

                      "Common sense" is often wrong in scientific areas & in political areas, has led to terrible atrocities.

                      You need to understand what an allergic response is (with elevated allergen-specific IgE antibodies), not just a food sensitivity or response to psychosomatic cause.
                      Those tetms are incorrectly used interchangeably in the general population.

                      As I commented above, it is better to understand your health issues, seek advice, rather than avoid the stimulus just because you BELIEVE there is an issue.
                      Incorrect thoughts cause so many problems & are very hard to undo, usually because they make "common sense" to the person with the thoughts.

                      Link between MSG & allergies was debunked years ago. Read the weird history of how the myth developed! But it's still popular among those who want to believe it, & deny the research findings…

                        Well, we'll have to disagree then…

                        Pretty sure that all the people who have reactions to MSG can make their own mind up as to whether they want to consume it or not.

                          @jv: The research has been done. You view has been disproven - long ago. One day you'll catch up…

                          people… can make their own mind up as to whether they want to consume it or not.

                          But that's the problem - they BELIEVE their own story, because it makes (common) sense to them. They usually don't want to give up their belief & deal with the real problem(s). It is protective for them as it seems to work for them. (We all do this to some extent, even healthy people.)

                          When the thinking is examined objectively it generally is not correct. That's where CBT & other techniques can help challenge incorrect or harmful thinking.

                          We are strange story telling creatures who want to believe very strange thoughts!

                          Keeping on believing something that is not true, & possibly detrimental to the person's health is a serious matter! At best it limits people's choices & options - which form a basis for a healthy, fulfilling life.

                          As shown in the study I linked above about a psychosomatic link with the onset of asthma, thinking can result in severe medical symptoms.

                          As you choose only to believe the limiting thoughts you believe… No use wasting my time or discussing my experience in this interesting field.

      For me has an alternative taste to normal mayo.

      Can't describe it but it is like tangier and smoother.

      Less of a strong hit than normal mayo I can put more and not be overwhelmed but still taste nice.

      The squeeze bottle is the main attraction. Mayo itself isn't bad, but I prefer Best Foods mayo.

      thomy is great mayo, also has good egg content.

        I just did a taste test with Thomy vs Kewpie, and I still prefer Thomy, it has a stronger, more eggy taste. Kewpie is OK but a bit milder/plainer. So if you like stronger flavors, give Thomy a go.
