It seems that many things are disappearing from our life – many of our favorite restaurants are understaffed and closing down, landscaping and construction materials are on long backorders, and even grocery staples and produce can’t always be readily found.
I went to Publix yesterday and they were out of bananas. Bananas! Who is ever out of bananas? But yet on this Monday morning my grocery store didn’t get truck delivery of not only bananas, but many other food staples as well. This prompted me to check out Walmart, which is my got to place for most household items and often groceries too. And they had bananas. But there was something missing – Nutrisystem meals.
I have been using Nutrisystem meals for a while. I am not on their stick diet anymore, but I love to have shakes, snacks, and meals from Nutrisystem in my freezer and fridge for times when I’m too busy to cook from scratch, but still want to have something low calorie and healthy. This time I planned to replenish my stack, but was very unpleasantly surprised when Walmart had nothing in stock to offer me. I am not sure if it’s temporary or permanent, but I intend to find out.
Thankfully, Walmart.com still has plenty of my meals and sells them a la carte or as multiple day meal programs on the site. The choice online is very wide and shipping takes only 1-2 days, so I will be fine. I just hope Walmart is not running out of truck drivers, like so many other places do.
I can’t list all Nutrisystem meals available at Walmart.com, but here are a few:
- Nutrisystem Kickstart Red Kit – Real Balanced Nutrition, 5-day supply - $45.98
- Nutrisystem Cinnamon Streusel Breakfast Muffins, 4c - $5.98
- Nutrisystem Cheese Puffs (8 pack) - $14.98
- Nutrisystem On-The-Go Variety Bundle Bars, 15 count - $32.99
- Nutrisystem Lunch Variety Pack: Quick and Easy meals (10 count) - $49.99
- Nutrisystem Frozen Dessert Lovers Variety Pack, 20 count - $52.99
- Nutrisystem Body Select Weight Loss Bundle: Kits, Shakes, and Snacks, 50 items - $119.99
This list is just a small sample of what’s available at Walmart online. Besides this wide selection, shipping on all orders of Nutrisystem is free, so this becomes almost as convenient as getting it from the store, just not instant.
Target has very similar selection of Nutrisystem meals online, but I am going to check how their supply at the brick and mortar stores looks like. While Target is nice, I prefer Walmart because of lower prices and better deals, so most likely I will remain loyal to Walmart.com.

On the other hand, eBay has every Nutrisystem meal possible and for the most competitive prices. Since I shop there quite often, I’m not opposed to getting my Nutrisystem supply from eBay as well, especially when prices are the kind that I find on the main Nutrisystem site.
So while there are many options for getting my favorite diet meals, I am still hoping that Walmart will bring frozen Nutrisystem meals and snacks back, because it was always so convenient. And while I wait for those Nutrisystem days to come back, I will also hold my fingers crossed for the return of bananas to Publix.
