Last week i bought four bags of RO from my local source "WALMART". Couldn' t find it in the garden department, so i went to the manager. "We moved it in front of the registers, where the Holloween stuff was!"??? I told him "show me". Sure enough, they had relocated the lump, just the lump(?) to the front of the store?? I put four bags in my cart , finished my shopping and left the store. Got the wife's new stationwagon. The second bag i went to load bottom first, blew out as it crossed the beginning of the back door -- spewing lump and dust thru the whole rear end of the car!! Since it was the bottom of the bag - you can imagine the dust bowl i created! Lost half the bag between the parking lot and the car's interior!! I was upset, but accepted some of the responsibility for not checking the bottom of the bags -- made a mental note on this one!!! Knew i had to carefully unload it, and get the vacuum cleaner out to clean up the mess!! What really pi$$ed me off was the bottom of the bag had a six inch piece of packing tape on it!!! Telling me "someone" knew the bag had a problem, yet kept it in stock! Then was so stupid, to only put one piece of packing tape on it!! Sent Walmart Corporate a note about customer service and the thought of "relocating" lump causing it to break up into smaller pieces, and of course the issue that they put a broken bag back into regular stock!! The manager called for me to bring my recipe in for a NEW BAG. WOW....... It will be worth it just to tell him what customer service means and where he might put the next damaged bag -- where the sun don't shine!! :x
It seems that the T.V. cooking networks nhave covered shown them in action enough that they are becoming popular. Every comment i hear about them is that "they are very expensive!". Even small chain stores have the Heiniken promo in them. And i am seeing more and more lump brands available around my area??? So they are catching on!!
