I bought this only because my home town Walmart did not have bulk garlic available. They used to keep bulk garlic and I could select the amount I needed at the time and judge the freshness of the product. I prefer to buy fresh garlic as I need it so it doesn't get old and have to be discarded. This was my only choice, other than the pre chopped garlic in the jar. This garlic was not dated nor was it fresh. I am now left with an additional and unnecessary garlic bulb which will probably get old before I can use it and have to be thrown away...what a waste! Walmart, please bring back bulk garlic and vegetables for my selection. This will avoid unrest selections and waste to my budget.
