An open letter to MONKEY BRAINS OATMEAL...
Dear Monkey Brains,
WHY? WHY? WHY?....
I am a HUGE fan of your Blueberry Oatmeal, I eat it A LOT,
I rave about it A LOT to everyone I know...I enjoy the little
raisins, the cool BLUE /PURPLE colour, the yummy taste, all natural,
O.K Yes you are STILL organic, but WTF!?? You changed the DANG
INGREDIENTS! A smidgen yes...but ENUFF to CHANGE the dang taste!!
NOW it tastes..well...FRICKIN FAKE, DID i get a bad batch?
I'm not sure...it sure wasn't all PURPELY like before..hardly ANY raisins
in it( i counted TWO!)..and it had a ...GASP...artificial aftertaste! Now i KNOW it doesn't
have any..but, shoot,it DID...
Here's the OLD ingredients list:
Organic rolled oats, Organic evaporated cane juice,raisins,blueberry powder,
FRUCTAN(natural source of dietary fiber), natural flavor.
Heres the NEW ingredients:
Organic rolled oats,organic evaporated cane juice, raisins,dried blueberry.NUTRAFLORA(prebiotic), natural flavoring and coloring.
O.K so WHAT made it change taste? the NUTRAFLORA? The dried blueberry? The natural flavoring and coloring...? YOU tell ME?
All I know is...Did NO ONE LEARN ANYTHING FROM NEW COKE!?????
SO PLEASE consider what you did, explain to me what it is that changed it...Did you do it to save production costs? I dunno? All I know is..I'm scared to open that next envelope tomorrow morning...i DO know..I'm going out to Vitamin cottage and Whole Foods to see if they have any of the OLD boxes on the shelves and grab em all...
Then rethink this whole MONKEY BRAINS allegiance....
