How Cool Is This?

Hello Cheryl,

Thank you for pointing out your blog post to us. I’m glad you enjoy our Fruit Bars. I’d love to send you a couple gift certificates for Fruit Bars. Where can I mail them to?

Website: Edy's

This e-mail arrived today from Edy's website. After posting "Shaddy Hits the Bars" on my blog, I contacted Edy's by e-mail encouraging them to check it out. I'm delighted that they appreciated my positive comments regarding their product enough to reward me. Of course that's what I was hoping they might do, but I didn't really expect it.

Edy's fruit bars AND their customer service are both really, really cool.

In case you're wondering who Cheryl is, that's my real name; Shaddy's a childhood nickname and the one I choose to use here.

(Go to my previous post for Shaddy's hydration recipe).

That is Very Cool!

JANA: I've posted positive comments about several products I buy. I do it because I'm excited about the product and want to share it with others. Just for the heck of it, I often contact the company and encourage them to go to my blog.

LaceLocks and Edy's are the only companies who have shown their appreciation so kindly.

It is very cool indeed.

O! M! G! Bald-faced, outright catering to merchants for rewards!!! How can you? You are selling out your principles for a couple popsicles????

(Translation: I'm so jealous.)

Now that I have that out of my system, it reminds me of a story of of the old time Sourdoughs around here used to tell:

Seems a local fellow opened a can of Van Camp's Pork and Beans and, lo and behold, found a tiny piece of fat-back pork amongst all the beans. He carefully wrapped it in tin foil and sent it to Van Camp's, along with a note explaining that he'd found it in one of his cans and was sure they were looking for it. Thus, its return

Van Camp's sent the fellow a case of canned beans.

GULLY: Perhaps I should have held out for a case of fruit bars??!!

Good for you! I remember once my ex-husband wrote to a mustard company telling them how awful and inferior their product was.

The company sent us AN ENTIRE CASE of the stuff.

This is a much, much better ending! Now, would you toss me a pomegranate bar? Thanks!

Shaddy said...

NATASHA: That's crazy! They must have been desperately trying to get rid of that nasty mustard!

Reach out. I'm tossing you a fruit bar...ENJOY!
