Ice Cream Deception
I want the REST of my "ice cream" bar NOW.
In fact, I want REAL ICE CREAM TOO.
Where is the Rest of my ice cream bar?
|The Chocolate Coated |
Excuse me, Mr. "original brand" Popsicle, Mr. Revello,, Mr. Cor Dairy 83, or Mr. Generic CEO, whatever your name happens to be; Sorry to bother you, Sir,---but do you really believe consumers do not know when they are being bilked?
Ice cream comes on a stick. Good, wholesome, natural ice cream. When the weather is hot, ice cream on a stick has been a genuine, traditional and healthy treat for children of all ages and adults alike.
Everyone loves genuine, real ice cream--and it is a great North American Tradition.
You are now destroying this tradition by being less than honest.
We have been eating ice cream on a stick for DECADES. Usually vanilla, or sometimes chocolate, but most note-worthy and now revealing-- vanilla ice cream DIPPED in chocolate.
We happen to KNOW what good ice cream is -or WAS.
We KNOW how big ice cream bars USED to be before being downsized to 'YOUR" 60ml profiteering less-than-honest size.
We KNOW they were a LOT bigger than these are today. In the past, they were undoubtedly closer to 100ml.
HOW do WE know, you ask?
Consumers are NOT stupid.
Consumers DO pay attention to details.
Your own production practices have revealed the deception. The chocolate "DIP" line remains FAR UP the now 'chocolate coated stick" on the 'downsized product' EXACTLY where it used to be, but, SIR, for your information, that's where ICE CREAM used to be TOO........but that ice cream is strangely "missing".
Is the chocolate-coated stick the consumer's compensation for the missing ice cream?
Where is the rest of my ice cream?

Consumers are all too aware that everyone in corporate North America is 'downsizing product packaging ' , 'outsourcing', using CHEAP ingredients, and manipulating operations to save money and make more profit,--- but shame on anyone doing so for using deceptive business practices.Your children, undoubtedly consumers of ice cream themselves --would be ashamed of this less-than-sterling business ethic.
As consumers, we will now undoubtedly boycott your "downsized product" -by the way---which actually is not traditional, genuine ice cream. It is merely a less-than-adequate wannabe pretender.
-------- Oh, YES, displayed in tiny print is "Choclolatey coated frozen dessert bars" --carefully and aptly described, for 'legal requirements'
Frankly, your product is a less than an honest pretender, Sir!
Anyone can read the following "list of ingredients". A mix of : water, 'modified milk ingredients', sugar, glucose, maltodextrine, milk ingredients, 'natural flavour', mono and diglycerides, carob bean gum, guar gum, carrageenan, "Chocolatey Coating" coconut oil, sugar, soy lecithin, artificial flavour, salt, MAY CONTAIN PEANUTS AND/OR OTHER NUTS.
|A gloriously long list of chemicals does not Ice Cream make!|
At Incoming Bytes my loyal readers insist that we be honest.
In all honesty, "downsizing of product and demanding the same price" is a COMMON PRACTICE.
There is no excuse for less than honest business practices, so let's start here, Mr. CEO..... Send us the rest of OUR ice cream, and while you're at it, make it the REAL stuff !!
Is that Incoming I hear?
