Walmart is the biggest, but which is the best?

Hi

We are due to arrive in Orlando next Thursday - yippee - only been waiting 18 months!

Our daughter has allergies to mainly egg and dairy, as a result we are self catering. We will need to do a big shop on arrivial, but which supermarket would you advise we visit for things like goats milk and goats cheese, dairy free biscuits etc. I know Walmart is big, but does it cater for this speciality end of the market?

Would we be better off going to somewhere like publix?

Or is there no difference between the two supermarkets?

Any ideas welcomed and appreciated!

Publix, Walmarts food selection isn't the best.

Possibly Goodings as well - it's a bit posher and more expensive but it probably carries this sort of thing. It's more of a high-end, Waitrose-type of store.

For what you are looking for, don't waste your time with Publix. Wholefoods is by far the best choice.

I asked about Walmart on here recently and sounded promising until I watched a documentary on them the other day. How they treat the public and their workforce was disgusting. Slave labour. Here is the link if you want to buy the dvd or download somewhere. I was totally shocked at how bad they are. It has really made me think about going to their store unless people advise me otherwise. They may have changed since this was filmed a few years ago but doubt as they were probably born greedy.
