Whole Foods is cutting its prices by 43 percent, addressing one of the biggest complaints people have about the store. But is the price cut enough for the specialty grocer to go up against Trader Joe's? Trader Joe's has its own cult following, thanks to its low prices and a huge range of snacks. It's also near and dear to city dwellers everywhere. But Whole Foods has a bigger selection and more organic products. What do you think? 🍎

Whole Foods has a hot food bar, organic everything, in-house baked goods and so much more. Food used to be more expensive—MarketWatch calculated groceries at Whole Foods are roughly 32 percent higher than Trader Joe's. Good thing Amazon slashed prices at Whole Foods by a wide margin. This means you can get everything you would normally get at Trader Joe's, but at the same price and with a better selection.

There's also the kitchen, the coffee shops, and the occasional bar depending on how fancy your Whole Foods is. Trader Joe's was cool because it was cheaper than Whole Foods. Not anymore. 

Trader Joe's is not popular because it's cheap. It is popular because people trust and like the supermarket. It has a smaller selection, but Trader Joe's fans trust that whatever they get will be good. And with Trader Joe's generous sampling policy, you'll never be unpleasantly surprised. You can try anything you want at Trader Joe's... if you just ask.

And let's not forget Trader Joe's two-buck Chuck wine, the store's limited edition items, a no-questions-asked return policy, and the chain's guarantee to offer items at the lowest price possible. The reason why Whole Foods is slashing prices now is because the chain has been ripping people off for years. Trader Joe's actually cares about the customers—and the customers feel it.
