Cella's

If this is my biggest problem then I must be a lucky man. I have been eating Cella's chocolate covered cherries since I was a little kid in Albany. There was a corner store called Jake's that had the red foil covered cherries loose for I think a nickle apiece. What a treat.
Over the last year I have noticed the red boxes of 16 cherries are defective!! I stopped buying them because there is no liquid filling in the confection! The chocolate bottoms are collapsed. I just got a box last night because the other brand they usually have was sold out. So annoying, but I ate the whole box hahahaha. I wonder if my local A&P is buying seconds or rejects. Definite quality control problem going on.
Leave it to me to get outraged over such a triviality. I emailed Tootsie Roll Industries with a complaint, lol.

Follow up,
I heard from Tootsie Roll Industries, they said the confection was severely heat damaged, which "is out of our control."
I wrote back and said I don't think so, it's a quality control problem. It's obvious the cherries weren't filled at the factory. The chocolate was fresh and intact. Anybody have Ralph Nader's email address? hahaha

Jake's market .... was that the little corner mom & pop on Ontario St at Hudson? Jake was old in the early eighties and always had a cigar in his mouth. His business was cigarettes, candy and beer. Everything else in the store was dusty. I often wondered how he made any money. It was later discovered that his buddy, Erastus Corning, the mayor of Albany had all the supplies of the city purchased through Jake's Market. The really great part for Jake was he never handles a single case of toilet paper or cleaning solution and he didn't have to give any volume discounts. The money just flowed right to him.

It was also discovered that hundreds of dead people were regularly voting democrat in Albany, it was a fine example of a Democrat machine. Acorn was just in its infancy then.

I have some in the Frigidaire, I'll have to check this out (my grandmother called every refrigerator a Frigidaire, regardless of what brand it was).

I think I was ten years old before I realized that Frigidaire was a brand name. MY grandmother called every refrigerator an icebox.
