      Hello tsadjatko , Yes Avocados are super Healthy! Yes I have dealt with the supermarkets quite a bit. I personally take the initiative to talk with them about Produce and adding organic choices. Believe or not they do listen, if people will speak up to the supermarket stores they would be surprised how much they actually do want to please their customers. I hope everyone talks to the Managers at their local grocery stores. :))

      Avacado are so good for you! I can't understand why the grocey stores put them out like apples or oranges - they spoil so fast in the open - if they would simply refrigerate them they would be able to sell many many more - my grocery store throws out more than they sell, but they never learn.
