YoPlait Whips Giveaway!!

Default post image

yoplait whips

Hi everyone! I was recently given the opportunity to review Yoplait Whips (from my good friends at My Blog Spark)- FROZEN!
What makes this so AWESOME?
Well, it satisfied my craving for ice cream while keepin’ it healthy!

How many products can say they do that?

They come in all of these fantastic flavors:Chocolate, Chocolate Raspberry, Dulce de Leche, Key Lime Pie, Lemon Meringue, Orange Crème, Peaches ‘N Cream, Raspberry Mousse , Strawberry Mist!

All of them are loaded with vitamin D!

So here’s what I did: I stuck my Yoplait Whips in the freezer, and waited until they were frozen solid. I took it out, and let it sit on the counter for about 7 minutes (softens it enough to get your spoon through) and dug in.

It was like heaven in a cup- without any guilt! You have portion control with the sweetness of ice cream with the added benefit of vitamin D!

Now, here’s your opportunity to WIN this sweet Yoplait Whips PRIZE PACK!

All you have to do is:

  • Leave a comment telling me which flavor of Yoplait Whips you would like to try frozen! I tried the Strawberry Mist. Yum!
  • Be a follower of my blog.

Ken’s Foods: Customer Service Debacle

Default post image

So let me begin this post by saying: “Everything in this blog is my own opinion, and the details are to the best of my knowledge”.

Now that that is out of the way, please let me start from the beginning. A few months ago, I called Ken’s Food company to give them ‘feedback’ on one of their products, Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce. I had tried it, and loved it.

I am the type of person that if I have strong feelings regarding an item or product, I will call the company and let them know my opinion. I feel that companies not only appreciate this, but they deserve to know what the ‘common customer’ might think.

The customer service representative that I spoke to that day was very appreciative of my call. She thanked me for my opinion, and offered to send me coupons for Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce and a few other products they make- Ken’s Salad Dressing and Ken’s Marinade. I did not realize that they made Ken’s salad dressing, not sure why, but I never put two and two together.

I received the coupons in the mail, and went out to buy the Ken’s Salad dressing to try. I did, and LOVED it. It was very high quality and was mighty tasty.

Now here is where things start to change.

Today, I called Ken’s Foods to let them know I had tried their salad dressing. I told the customer service representative- the very same one I had talked to previously- that “I loved their salad dressing in addition to the BBQ sauce, and thank you for sending me those coupons. I would have never tried the product without them.”.

The lady was cordial about it and said that she was “glad I liked it.”

I then told her that “I was now loyal to the Ken’s food brand, and am a very happy customer. I’m also a blogger, and I’m going to write a post about it, and that I’ll send them the link”.

This is when the conversation got ugly, for lack of a better term.

The lady quickly cut me off by saying “WE DO NOT ALLOW PEOPLE TO WRITE ABOUT OUR PRODUCTS.”

Me: “I’m sorry, what?”

CSR Lady: “WE DO NOT ALLOW PEOPLE TO WRITE ABOUT OUR PRODUCTS, PERIOD.”

Me: “That’s what I thought you said. Which is just a shame, because I think my readers would love Ken’s Foods. I know I do.”

CSR Lady: “Goodbye”

click.

Nope, I didn’t get to say goodbye. I was hung up on.
Yeah, I know, it shocks me too.
I didn’t ask for anything in return for my opinion, and I wouldn’t dream of it.
I think that if there is a good (or even bad) product out there; given to me for free, discount or fully paid for, that I think will make your life better in some way, I’m going to let you all know about it.
It also means I will tell you my opinion of a CUSTOMER SERVICE EXPERIENCE.

What’s sad about this whole situation, is that it now makes me look differently at their product. I love it, no doubt about that. It tastes good, also no doubt.

How they treat their customers?

Now, that I have a problem with.

So tell me, how would YOU deal with this situation?
