Interesting Marketing Strategy

The guy who works next to me bought Peanut Butter and Co's Peanut Butter with Raisins. The raisins were hard as rocks so so wrote the company an e-mail (yeah, he's one of those).

They sent him a coupon for the same product.

Rock On,

What were you expecting?

"Sorry our merchandise sucks, but here is a coupon for Peanut Butter M&Ms, they are a much better product!"

hey sarah brooks,

actually, it's what was HE expecting?

But I'd hope for a coupon to one of their non-raisin products.

This is true.

The only time I've sent an e-mail complaining about food was a bag of "p'nuttles" I got at work.

The peanuts (covered in delicious toffee) were all rotten. Oddly enough, I ate 4 or 5 before I gave up.

They sent me a huge jug of p'nuttles. I put on 6 pounds the next week.
