Interesting. I have been trying to get Classico Afredo sauce for a few weeks, now. I thought it was just my local Fortinos, but Walmart doesn't have any either. I'm now wondering (since all the brands on the shelves are red sauces only) if maybe they are having a supply issue in the plants that make the white sauces? It could be as simple as 'more people buy red sauce, so concentrate on that'.I often have the same complaint about my store.....I rarely can get everything I need. DD was a store manager and now is in supply chain. She tells me every single time I complain that it's not the stores fault.....it's a supply chain problem. Since changing jobs she has a completely new view on how things work and has often said that she thinks it's a shame that store managers don't know how things trickle down from the manufacturer to the store level. Having that knowledge would change how they deal with a lot of issues in the store.
She also recently told me that there are still ongoing issues with plant closures due to outbreaks all over the place. There could possibly be meat shortages again and there is still an aluminum problem.
I can and do make my own red sauces, but I have a mental block on the alfredos, so I like buying those.
