W.T.C. - Where's the love???!!!

What the CRAP!
My niece blogs ONCE, ONCE! about her love for a certain icecream:

Dear Farr.....

Does it ever occur to you that maybe when you put a picture of your product on the front of the product and the customer purchases that product that they will be expecting that picture when they open the package????!!!

Such was our plight one late evening. After a VERY rough week I headed to the grocer to pick up some groceries. Due to tight budget restrictions I was very lucky to even purchase icecream!! Usually my first choice is Blue Bunny. Farr, maybe you should go visit the Blue Bunny factory to learn what the word "chunks" means.

For those of you who like chunks in your icecream, you will know that chunky icecream is not only a preference but also a way of survival.....a way of CHEWING the stresses out of life. There is NOTHING better than a good creamy icecream with lots of CHUNKS.

When I saw that the price of wonderfully chunky delicious Blue Bunny had sky-rocketed, I wandered down the aisle to see if I could get my money's worth. There I saw the picture. The picture of Farr's Cookie Dough icecream....ON SALE!!!! The picture showed amazing amounts of beautifully arranged chunks. I thought, "Okay Farr, let's give you a try....you are on sale...."

After unloading the groceries my husband and I sat down to watch a movie. He pulled out the icecream and dished it up. He griped and complained at the lack of chunks while he dished it. No amount of complaining or griping could have prepared my cookie-dough-aching teeth for the vanilla icecream with black SPECKS in it. That's right....I said SPECKS (not chunks)!!! And was the icecream creamy? NO!!! It tasted like frozen yogurt!!! I had to double check the carton to make sure it wasn't frozen yogurt!!!!! Nope it was real icecream. Did it have cookie dough chunks? Spread throughout the entire carton was about 1 TEASPOON of cookie dough!!!!!

Farr, I am disappointed in you. We haven't even finished the carton of icecream because we are still SO traumatized. At a moment when we needed you to pull through the most you weren't there for us Farr. As 'Farr' as we are concerned.....Blue Bunny gets the vote!!!!

With Saddest Regards,
The Hansens



And she gets THIS!?!?!?!

Why haven't I gotten offers for free sex toys or Snuggies?

Anjd my husband gets so mad because I always pick out the chunks. Please. We've been married for almost 5 years. He should realize this by now.

The world is an imperfect place.

Why the crap hasn't John written me?!

Oh and where are the pics. I am getting impatient.

Maybe I should be posting more about my love for BMWs and 37' Sea Ray Sport Cruisers.

Keep waiting you never know. My sister wrote a letter to Snapple once, when she was like six, to tell them it was her favorite lemonade and they sent her coupons for free Snapple. You never know...hang in there!

Omgirl said...

That is just plain UNFAIR! Do you know how many products I have praise on my blog? And you don't ever hear Haagen Daz or Oreos or Cover Girl trying to send ME free stuff. LAME-O.

P.S. I tagged you! Oh joy! Go to my blog to see it.

See, they know you're buyin' the Duds anyway. If you post about how you're going to have to find a cheaper, though really unacceptable replacement, maybe they'll send to the luv to keep you as a customer. Right now, you're just free advertising!
