@cengland0 That’s about what I was going to say. Keep the candy and lower the price for just the knife. The candy is still for sale on morning save so I’m guessing Meh is hoping people will gloss over the laxative (as someone previously called it) and just see the knife since we have been conditioned to expect knives and speakers/docks together.
Watch, all of these schlubs complaining. If I’m the only sucker that fell for this and it turns out to be something else, I’ll have the last laugh. However, if it really turns out to be candy corn and a knife, I’ll still laugh.
I bought this the first time around and got the bricks of Candy Corn. It was as much because it was packaged in envelopes instead of boxes. I wish they would promise it would be in a box this time. Then I would order this with the knife.
Of the six bags in the Almost Seven Pounds deal, three were more or less normal, one showed some signs of melting, and two no longer contained discrete kernels. Then again, this is August and my porch is concrete, so it’s not like I was startled by this.
@windowphobe Similar results for me. 3 bags ok, and 3 bags with partially stuck together kernels. It did not help that the mail carrier jammed the bubble wrap bag into my rural style mail box. And I took my chances having this shipped to southern Arizona. Luckily I was home and able to retrieve the delivery within an hour or so…
Geez even I know not to ship candy or beer by truck through the desert during the summer. We had a situation where we had to ship plastic parts to Califoirnia from Miami in the summer and we had to plastic bag the box and spray 4 or 5 shots of water into the bag then close the box, because trucking across I-10 in the summer would bake any moisture out of the parts and change them dimensionally.
@rtjhnstn My husband drove a truck for a few yrs and a few loads were all of the mistakes from Mars Candy co… many still in the wrappers and they were all chopped up. A 53’ trailer load… to the cattle farm. Another guy delivered all the left over dregs that you find in the bottom of the cheese doritos bags. Truckloads. One of the reasons I only get grass fed/finished beef.
Is there any chance we can get a reasonable but inexpensive folding knife with a blade that is less than three inches long? I lost my last one and have been wanting a replacement. There are a couple of places that I frequent which are fine with people bringing pocket knives as long as the blades are no longer than three inches. While I don’t think anyone is going to measure, I still like to stay within the rules.
@Knightp I agree with sammydog01’s opinion. Mine were shipped slowly, staying over a weekend in some warehouse somewhere but showed up in pretty good shape. The difference, I believe was the shipping box I got over the shipping bag most received.
But @tHumperchick already said this batch were going out in bags. So i was probably really stupide for ordering the “stabby bundle” this time around.
WHY WOULD YOU EVEN LOWER YOURSELVES AND PUT SOMETHING LIKE THIS ON HERE…IVE BEEN BUYING HERE FOR YRS AND IVE SEEN U GOING DOWNHILL…GET IT OVER WITH AND HANG IT UP MEH! PUT SOME DECENT PRODUCTS ON UR SITE…ID RATHER SEE NOTHING THEN THINGS LIKE THIS…ID RESPECT MEH MORE…BS WHO EVER IS IN CHARGE OF BUYING NEEDS TO GO GO GO
@sammydog01 In other news, I’ve become one of “those guys” who carry a pocket knife. I typically don’t like a bunch of shit in my pockets weighing me down, but this little knife is pretty light. I can keep it in my back pocket clipped at the ready.
I ordered this the second time around, after son wanted some in the store.
It does not seem to be melted as, smushed. The mail carrier crammed the “mailing bag,” in my mailbox. Was a struggle to get it out.
Yet she would not put hand clippers in the mailbox.
The candy is not stale, I ate three pieces, ewwwww, too sweet! Three bags gone. No complaints from consumers.
