A Closer Look At Walmart’s World Table

Christopher Durham Nov 8, 2010 152

Since the redesign and relaunch of Walmart’s Great Value their Private Brands and corresponding strategy have been the subject of water cooler chatter from Main Street to Wall Street. Over the last 18 months their portfolio strategies have continued to evolve and grow with the introduction of Marketside in fresh, the adaptation of design strategy on Great Value and launch of Private Brand Wines like Lucky Duck. The most recent addition has been the appearance of the premium food brand World Table. Despite the fact that it has been called a test by the traditional trade press it seems to be rapidly growing with close to 50 skus in cookies, chips, salsa, crackers, nuts, snack mixes, popcorn and pizzas. Interestingly many of these categories where once inhabited by Sam’s Choice, it will be intriguing to see if the new brand replaces the few remaining Sam’s Choice products in cookies, coffee and frozen meal kits.

The new premium unique foods of the world brand positioning stands alongside other remarkably similar Private Brands including the recently launched Food Emporium Trading Company from A&P, HT Traders from Harris Teeter and World Classics from Topco.

World Table gives Walmart an excellent tool to not only expand its Private Brand penetration but provide new and unique choices for its customers. Additionally the fresh upscale modern design is a welcome relief to the stark whiteness of Great Value.

And my favorite part of the new brand is the Salt & Pepper Yukon Gold Chips are amazing.

What do you think of the new brand and it implications for Walmart’s evolving Private Brand portfolio strategy?

    The offerings seem to be uniformly excellent with the Yukon Gold Garlic Mashed Potato chips topping the list!! The salsas, cookies and snack mixes provide more healthful options with great flavor and variety.

    Go World Table!!

      I recently purchased a couple of bags of World Table Black Pepper Flavor Rice Thins. I can’t say enough about them. Chips (of any kind) move over, there’s a new chrip in town and it as flavor, crunchiness and season to perfection. Low in everything. You gotta try them and there is a variet of flavors. Happy crunching

        I’m eating the chips right now and they are exceptional. I’m completly sold on the new concept and branding.

    Just tried the World Table Thin Crust Pepperoni Pizza with Fresh Mozzarella. Surprisingly good! The extra circles of mozzarella cheese is a definite upgrade and the pepperoni was excellent. So was the sauce. The end crust would actually fall apart in my mouth! A first for me from a frozen pizza.

    My husband and I finally agree on what frozen pizza to get. The World Table Philly Steak! The best pizza ever. Too bad our Wal-Mart always runs out and never keeps enough on hand. Quite frustrating. They never know if or when they will get more…additional frustration.

      So, Dec 3 I posted how much we love the Philly Steak pizza. Got one with a bad batch of steak. Chewy and had to spit and pick a lot of meat out. I’m second guessing myself about getting another one. Batch EST15815A. Best if used by 011212D4. Yuck!

        @Kay

        Thanks so much for the thoughtful feedback. You’d be surprised how often companies watch their products online. Reviews like this allow us to better tighten our quality controls. Providing the best if used by lot lets us track what day those pizzas were made so we can investigate further.

      The Philly Cheesesteak Pizza I had was a nasty mouthful of salt and grease. No onions? No peppers? Meat flakes doesn’t qualify this as a cheesesteak. However, the Sicilian I had was fantastic! Go figure!

    I love the World Table brand. The Spiced Sweet Potato Chips rock and I’ve loved all the crackers I’ve tried so far…Jalapeno Cheddar Crackers, Honey Flax Crackers, Black Pepper and Sea Salt Crostini Crackers. The biscotti’s are excellent as well as the Spiced Chai and the thin sugar cookies. All super yummy and my food snob friends have changed their ways as well. I’m so happy to be able to get these great food items at my local Walmart.

      I love the World Table Berry crackers!:) They can’t keep them in stock at the store in my area, but when I do see them on the shelf, I usually buy them out. I haven’t found anything to compare with them, especially for the price.

        P.S.: (I used to work for Wal-Mart. Befriend one of the associates that works in the back receiving inventory…ask them to give you a call the day they see that product comes in. They’re typically very helpful for someone they know well ;-) People do things like this all the time at Wal-Mart regarding a wide array of things:)

    The World Table Roasted Salsa Verde was the best tomatillo green salsa I have ever tasted. Hands down.

    • Michelle Jun 21, 2011 at 3:18 pm - Reply

      I am a trained chef and make my own salsa verde which is quite superior to the World Table brand as it is very fresh tasting, but if I can’t find fresh tomatillas, this is an excellent product and quite delicous, and cheaper than the Frontera brand which is the only other bottled salsa brand I like. I actually purchased it for my family recently and it agreed with everything homemade at our taco dinner.

    • Terry Mar 6, 2012 at 7:03 am - Reply

      I agree with Daryll. If you are not a trained chef and able to make your own “superior fresh salsa” like Michelle, this is THE best. We drive a long way a couple times a year to our favorite authentic Mexican restaurant for this flavor. What a surprise when we tried this seemingly generic salsa. Since our Walmart is rather far from where we live, I buy several jars at a time now and also have a friend pick some up when she goes. Thumbs up on this one!

    This brand has been so very good. We are wild about the Nutty Blend Caramel Clusters (I’ve always hated caramel corn and this stuff is amazing) and the Exotic Potato Chip Blend is outstanding. I’m surprised that Walmart has not done more to call attention to these but I guess I’m also a little happy as: 1. I like to be the first to bring a new snack home (and to work); and 2. When something like this becomes popular, the stores seem to run out.

    This is really good stuff and I will be trying more World Table products.

    I had no idea that these were Walmart brand items. My husband & I purchased the pepperoni & mozzorella pizza, as well as the Buffalo chicken pizza….All I can say is DELICIOUS!!! Never woulda guessed this as anything but an upscale brand. I also picked up the sweet heat salsa. A little sweeter than I was expecting but definetly had a unique flavor. I am looking forward to trying the other salsas’, as well as the chips I saw. I was so impressed by the pizzas that we have purchased 6 in the last 2 weeks, we are a 5 person family so we eat 2 pizzas at a time. Add some freid cheese sticks & we’ve got dinner for 5 under $10!! I am super excited to try other World Trade items!

    I am shocked that these are Walmart brand pizzas. I wonder why the Walmart grocery store does not carry them in that case. I actually crave the philly pizza. It is by far the best store bought pizza I have ever had. Definitely worth trying, then you will be hooked. Haha! I will be trying the other kinds now based on your other comments.

      Teresa….. Ditto on craving the Philly Cheese Pizza, it is the very BEST!!!!! I made a special trip to Walmart to stock up twice and they have been out both times… I sure wish they would keep up with demand!

    I wasn’t crazy about the philly pizza but will certainly have to look for the pepperoni, that sounds wonderful. Eating the sweet heat salsa right now and love it! I really enjoy fruit salsas and this is a very good one. Looking forward to trying more of this line.

    I just have to say that this past week I tried the Praline Pecans and then went to Wal-Mart tonight and saw that World Table made other foods. OMG the Lemon cookies are awesome and we can’t wait to try the berry crackers and the philly cheesesteak pizza. We went around the whole store trying to find everything that World Table made. I am very pleased..Thanks a bunch. Very affordable…..

    I really like world table crackers. They come in a very sturdy box, yet when I opened them they were all crushed inside. This leads me to believe that they were put in the box in that condition.

    Another enthusiastic vote for World Table’s Ultimate Sicilian – FINALLY, someone has done frozen pizza right. We, too, loved the Philly Cheesesteak but the Ultimate Sicilian was unbelievably good – I’ve never had a frozen pizza that tastes near as good.

    • Michelle Jun 21, 2011 at 3:23 pm - Reply

      I picked this up for a quick summer lunch for kids and I while I am busy taking summer classes. I am a chef of Sicilian heritage and I had little hopes that I would like it very much as I normally do not like frozen pizzas I bought the Ultimate Sicilian; It was really very good. I preheated a baking stone so that the crust had a good brick oven texture. I grated parmigiano reggiano atop the pizza before serving and had extra pepperoncini for it. Hands down the best frozen pizza I have ever purchased. Still not as good as homemade, but for the price and the time element it is sure a winner!

    Really love this brand. It was a smart move for Wal Mart. The Great Value brand is something that many go to for mainly because of the price, not the actual product. But this new World Table is pretty reasonable where price is concerned and of course as others have stated the actual products taste very good as well.

    I love everything I’ve tried branded world market, especially the mint chocolate cookies which when sandwiched chocolate sides together taste remarkably like Girl Scout Peppermint Thins used to. And ,alas, no longer do. And they are half the price, BTW.

    Being Sicilian, I think the idea of a thin crust Sicilian pizza is a hysterical oxymoron. Sicilian is actually a kind of pizza that by definition means thick. And the thicker the better. In Sicily the best ones are a couple of inches high at the very least.
    But I guess from reading these reviews, I’ll have to stop being such a purist and try them. Something about the very idea of a buffalo chicken pizza just completely turns me off. Just as bad as the idea of pineapple (pineapple!!!) on a pizza. But I’ll try any food once.
    I saw the green tomatillo sauce and now I just have to have it. By the way, Sam’s Choice pecan praline cookies are fabulous.What worries me is I found them on a clearance shelf. So I truly hope cookies this good won’t be discontinued.

      Hi Mike,
      I’m new to the gluten-free lifestyle. Did you ever manage to find anything out about the World Table products? I’ve been reading labels and eating whatever doesn’t have something bad on the label, but I’m starting to get it that I can’t do that. Realistically, I would think that putting “gluten free” on your label would be a real plus, so I have to think that none of these products are gluten free. :( Too bad, because I really love some of them too! The pizzas (bye bye, pizzas), the salsa verde (can’t I still eat this???), and the fancy potato chips (how about these??). It’s depressing that I “should” be able to eat lots of these things, and probably shouldn’t. Is a product like Salsa Verde going to have “gluten free” on it’s label? Do some products not put it, because it should be obvious? Wah! I don’t know! Please tell me if you found anything out. It would almost be better to find out for sure that I can’t eat them, than to “not know”.

      • Janet Mar 10, 2013 at 3:07 pm - Reply

        Some products do not contain gluten ingredients, but are made in factories that make other items that contain gluten. There is cross-contamination. This is a very big issue for Celiac disease sufferers. If you cannot get confirmation from the manufacturer that the product is gluten-free…DO NOT eat it if you have celiac disease!!

      I tried to investigate if there rice crackers are gluten free… It’s hard to know. I don’t see anything resembling gluten on the ingredients… but I’m always worried about products with soy sauce since most soy sauce has wheat in it. I also enjoyed the tomato basil bruscetta…. but once again… no verification if it was gluten free. They really need to put that on the label… or at least something that says if it was made on the same equipment as gluten products.

    Yes, well, the Thai-Spiced Peanuts are putrid. They overwhelmingly taste of ginger which is not that great of a flavor on peanuts. When I think Thai, I’m thinking exotic and very spicy flavoring. These are just gross.

    Just wondering when was the last time anybody found a World Table Philly steak and cheese pizza. I stumbled across two in Jan. 11 at the nearby Walmart, but never found them since. I have visited several stores in my area with no luck. I asked the persons in the frozen food depts. and they say they never heard of them. I would like to find a way to purchase them again.

    I too got a really bad Philly pizza. It was terrible :( That’s the only one i’ve tried and it was so bad it will be the last. I am however, a big fan of the Buff Chicken & the Pepperoni w/ fresh Mozz. I also like the Green Tomatillo Salsa. IMO– you should also avoid the Roasted Chipotle Salsa like the plague… it’s horrible!!!!!!!!

    I agree with the writer of the article, the Salt and Pepper Yukon Gold potato chips are absolutely the best chip I have ever tasted. I’m sure going to try the other World Table offerings as soon as I can. I hope too that they get good stocking levels on the products and keep them around for a while.

    Worldtable Pistachio Chocolate Crunch snack mix with plump sweet cherries and rich dark chocolate and lightly salted pistachios.I have Celiac Disease and thought I had it the jackpot, however and snacking I had usual stomach trouble that follows by eating gluten. Is there any way you can make this wonderful combination snack WITHOUT the WHEAT?

    I tried 2 different kinds of pizza, cheese steak and pepperoni. They have great flavor but has way to much sodium! Please make a sodium free pizza. I will not buy another world table pizza unless it is sodium free. You have a good product but it could be great if you change this one thing.

    I absolutely love the World Table products I have tried. My favorite item is the World Table Roasted Salted Pecans which are created to perfection. Unfortunately, it is frustrating having to run all over North Texas/Dallas metroplex trying to find a Wal-Mart that has not run out of some of the World Table products. Wal-Mart can’t seem to determine how much they need of this line of product since I will see some things barely move off the shelves and other are nearly impossible to find when I need them.

    I bought 2 bags of World Table roasted & salted pistachios, one for myself the other for my mom. Both bags were horrible. No one where I worked like them nor did anyone that tried them at my mom’s. Learned a lesson and wasted about $12.00.

    I love the World Table pecans, but I was very disappointed starting a few months ago. The 8 oz. bag was selling for $3.98, which was really a bargain, better than bulk at Winco. Then one day, while the shelf sign still said 8 oz. for $3.98, on the shelf were a combination of 5 oz. and 8 oz. bags. I snatched up the 4 or 5 larger bags and purchased them. When I ran out about a month or two later, all they had were the 5 oz. bags and had not changed the sign. When I did a price check on the 5 oz. bag they were $4.98!!! A nice man in customer service came to check it out – even found a box in their storage area that said it contained 8 oz. bags, but those were 5 oz. bags too. Now, 3 months or so later, I was just in the store and still only the 5 oz. bags and no one changed the price or size on the shelf sign. I checked at another WalMart here in Spokane and found the same thing. I asked a friend in N. Carolina to check. He could still get 8 oz. for $3.98, but there was one 5 oz. package that price checked at $4.98. Meanwhile, I am very pleased with prices and taste of a few other items I have tried – especially like their Butter Almond Thins, which taste as good as Jules Destrooper brand at a lower cost.

    I discovered the World Table Yukon Gold Garlic Mashed Potato chips about a year ago–they are the most awesome chip I’ve ever had!! But, like so many others have already stated, I haven’t been able to find them at ANY WalMart I’ve checked. Clearly, these products are GREAT and LOVED by a LOT of customers–so what’s the deal? Is WalMart discontinuing them? Having supply problems? What? I think your customers (you know, the ones who spend money in your stores) would really like to know. These products would obviously build up brand loyalty, if we could be sure we could actually find them….

    I have tried World Table Philly chesse steak and it was pretty good. My question is, Where is it made? there is zero info on the box.

    • myprivatebrand Feb 3, 2012 at 4:42 am - Reply

      The American made question pops up frequently here, you will find I have addressed it a number of times. I do not work for Walmart so I can not speak specifically to this product, however in all likelihood it is made in the US. There are hundreds of private brand food manufacturers in the US that supply most of the major grocery stores and big boxes with great quality product. The logistics and cost of importing frozen food items like this are generally cost prohibitive.
      That being said there are many great products from overseas including: wine from France, cheese from Italy, chocolate from Switzerland, soy sauces from Japan etc

    I bought the World Table lemon cookie thins and smashed them as crumbles to use as topping for a lemon cake for my granddaughter. It made beautiful “sand” to go along with my beach themed cake. The flavor is exquisite and they are so light and airy that the serving size of 7 is enough to satisfy your sweet tooth. I plan on trying the other flavors of cookies and crackers to use in baking, cooking and eating. My next creation will be to use the caramel filled ones for a decadent cinnamon streusel cake to top it off, and to compliment my homemade caramel filling. I would recommend these to everyone!

I just waisted $5.24 on this bag and I can honestly say I have NEVER known any company to screw up a pistachio so badly. They should take these off the shelf and be ashamed that they ever put them on a shelf for sale to begin with. I thought about feeding whats left in my bag to the birds, but then thought that would be ANIMAL CRUELTY!!!!!!!!! Horrible job there Wal-Mart!

    I have purchased several of the World Table crackers and actually all of them are quite tasty. Not realizing they were Wally’s own I thought they were premium and quite high quality for the price. I eat a lot of crackers and hummus and had been buying name brand gluten free which is crazy expensive. If WM continues to provide this level of quality for less money there is no reason to pay more for name brand.
    I highly recommend you try and compare the taste, texture and overall value as once you do you won’t go back to the over priced national brands.
    While I may not agree with the WM business model it would be ignorant of me to waste money on fancy packaging and slick advertising which is the majority of what you pay for savory foods including breads, cereals and chips. I personally recommend the Cornbread Squares, Bruschetta and Wasabi Rice Rounds

    I agree with a lot of the comments. You find something you like then it is gone. We really enjoyed the Cornbread Square crackers but can’t find them. Have looked at 3 nearby stores in Pasadena, Texas and also 2 in New Mexico. No one knows anything about them. Jalepeno crackers are ok but they don’t seem to sell, since they still have plenty on the shelves.

      Same here in Spokane /Coeur d’Alene area.. Lots the jalapeño crackers on the shelves but none of the cornbread which is my favorite.. I prefer to use my own hot sauce and the flavor of the jalapeño kind ruins the taste. I don’t know why they pulled their best selling crackers… Plus all of the local stores seemed to shrink the house brand area in favor of the national brands.
      I’m trying to avoid the big names and any that use HFCS as a primary ingredient.

      well stocked on many different World Table items. I have also gone into different Wal-marts
      in other cities and find that they too will be well stocked on various World Table items. When I do find a stock of something that I like, I buy several as a stash and hope that I will be able to locate more in the future. It appears that this is a nationwide problem with this brand.

    Yep, as is usual with Walmart, once they got people hooked on the World Table products they began to remove them from their shelves. We loved the World Table pizzas so, of course, those are all gone. Some of them were replaced with Sam’s Choice, but now even those aren’t completely represented anymore. They had a lovely thin crust pizza with 3 kinds of pepperoni on it that I just couldn’t get enough of. Gone, as are several other World Table products that I had discovered and enjoyed! Sometimes I believe Walmart is simply run by aggressively stupid people.
