I’d like to apologize for causing many of us a “Maple Syrup Headache” this weekend. I felt like I had done enough homework on the deal before I posted it, but I definitely see now that I should have checked into it further before sharing it with you. :(
I know many of you are frustrated with VitaCost for how they handled the situation and for how they “discontinued” the product and cancelled many of our orders and such. Yep, I’m pretty frustrated too. I do not like how they handled this and felt like they could have done a much better job and could have definitely used a better word than “discontinued” since apparently that product is still listed on their site as “coming soon”. Weird. Strange. I don’t get it. It’s kind of maddening, actually. I plan to call them tomorrow to discuss the issue with them.
While I completely understand and respect that many of you are unhappy enough with VitaCost to make the decision not to be a customer of theirs anymore, I’m also hoping that you’ll respect my decision to continue on as a customer, and to continue to occasionally share special deals they are offering with you. I’m miffed at VitaCost, to say the least, but I do still appreciate what they have to offer and while I will certainly be more cautious in the future, I will still use them as a resource. I’ve appreciated them up to this point and have benefited from their services and prices on healthy foods and supplements my family uses. I live in an area where ordering online is a must, unless I want to drive two hours to the nearest Whole Foods store. VitaCost has been a valuable resource to me and is typically less expensive than other resources I’ve found.
So now, I will take a deep breath and move on. Who knew maple syrup could be so frustrating? I’d much rather drizzle some on my pancake and sit down with a tall glass of milk.
Thank you all for being loving through this mess. I appreciate you.
And now on to our menu plan this week, which, not surprisingly, does include a little bit of maple syrup (which I got at the Farmer’s Market, not at VitaCost). :)
