GUEST,reggie miles BS: 4/19/05 Free Cone day at Ben & Jerry's (12) RE: BS: 4/19/05 Free Cone day at Ben & Jerry's 21 Apr 05

I've been disappointed in B&J since they stopped selling pints of Coconut Almond Fudge in the local grocery stores. I was strung out on that flavor like a junkie. Hmmm, maybe there was more in the ingredient description than they were willing to reveal. I complained to the stores that used to carry it, and I even wrote B&J an email asking why they would forsake such rabid product devotion but received no response, or action on the part of those who had been carrying B&J products. It's certainly an odd way of doing business, to develop and offer a product, then build a following for it, but instead of supplying the demand for it, they just discontinued it. I've seen this happen time and time again with all sorts of products.

(beyond the cone) Over ten years ago, the jug band I was playing with at the time, Strangers with Candy, was offered a tour from a record company that B&J had stock in. We couldn't accept the terms and the tour never happened.

Ah, memories.
