The Best Grocery Store Sushi According To Nearly 47% Of People

Grocery stores can be the most convenient option to turn to when you need to buy several food items for your pantry all at once. These stores also give you a chance to fulfill all your cravings and buy specialty food items, such as sushi. Here's the problem, though: Not all grocery stores do a good job with sushi. In fact, Taste of Home even recommends making store-bought sushi taste a lot better by warming it in the microwave for 30 seconds. 

An article by Taste offers more perspective: The outlet claims that sushi started appearing in grocery stores in the U.S. in the 1980s. At some point, these brands realized that their customers are looking for go-to packaged items, such as salads, pizza, and sushi. That said, sushi stored in cold temperatures won't taste as appetizing as freshly prepared sushi. However, it's affordable and more convenient to buy a pack of sushi at the store than it is to go to a restaurant, right?

Major brands have taken note of this and offer sushi these days. Which one has managed to please its customers the most, though? We conducted a survey that asked respondents to talk about sushi from popular supermarkets.

Whole Foods has managed to impress

In Mashed's survey, 639 participants from different parts of the U.S. felt that among major competitors such as Walmart, Costco, and Target, Whole Foods does the best job in terms of offering better quality sushi. In the poll, 46.95% participants rooted for the brand. The other names on the list were Kroger (18.62%), Costco (15.49%), Walmart (7.36%), Target (6.57%), and Meijer (5.01%).

Spoon University has the best things to say about sushi from Whole Foods. The site mentions that the supermarket has delicious and fresh sushi that's made from healthy ingredients such as brown rice, quinoa, and even black rice. Many of its sushi products are supplied by a major brand called Genji Sushi, a company that exists in more than 200 locations. Wow.

Also, if you're lucky, you may even be able to munch on a sushi burrito at Whole Foods. Certain locations have started offering the dish to their customers. Yay! A Redditor praised the brand's sushi and wrote, "It is absolutely delicious. Why on God's earth has nobody told me Whole Foods sushi is legit and not nasty ... It is like restaurant quality and I've even tried a bunch of those and they were nasty."
