Why is it that…

While I was at the store on the way home tonight, I went to get some applesauce.

It struck me very odd that there was very little floor space for canned fruit.

There was 16 feet of canned fruit. (actual length in the aisle, no I did not take the time to count the shelves to go that far)

This is a same space given to cooking oils…

There is 24 aisle feet of cat litter and a full aisle length of cereal not including the specials on the end caps etc.

Is this the importance of fruit? There is more space taken by spaghetti sauce.
