Mmmmmm, nothing like opening a box of scone mix to make raspberry scones only to find flying bugs inside and outside the box. Protein????
The mix doesn’t expire until December of this year so it isn’t old so I called the number on the box, Conifer Inc, makers of this brand scone mix and other products.
They were very polite and helpful, especially AFTER I said I was only looking for a coupon to replace the box. I am sure every food manufacturer worries that they will get a lawsuit after someone finds something in a box or mix. Hey, that’s not me. I asked if they wanted me to return the product to the store but I added I wasn’t even sure when I bought it or at which store – Shoprite or Stop and Shop, so she said no, throw it out. Before I do, they want me to wait for a phone call from the manager, to probably get the batch numbers etc from the bar code.
No harm no foul. Bugs happen but darn, with friends coming over for tea at 4, I now have to scramble to make something else to serve….or I could make these and ask my guests to guess the flavor! Trick AND Treat!! 🙂
