[b]NEW YORK[/b] (AP) -- Wal-Mart Stores Inc. on Wednesday will officially launch a mail subscription service, called Goodies, that lets shoppers discover new foods from the comfort of their homes.

You already could have food delivered, now they are just sending you random stuff to get you to buy different things

Sod exploring the world or discovering new things yourself, just have someone else do it for you

They've actually had mail-order food for a long time... Nothing new. :-p
