I had a pet peeve going with The Cella corporation! A couple years ago I bought a box, bit into them, and there was absolutely no liquid center! The chocolate shell, the cherry, that's it! I ate them, and went back a couple times over the next several weeks and bought another box each time. I have loved those confections since I was a kid. Nickle apiece at Jake's Corner Store in Albany NY, ca. 1965.
I got furious, wrote the company several times, and got a runaround! The lady rep. said the cherries had been subjected to excess heat! BS!!!!!!
I wrote the NJ Bureau of Consumer Affairs, but stopped at the red tape process of filing a complaint hahahhahaha
Which brings me to the question of: do supermarket chains or buyers conspire with manufacturers to sell defective products? Do they get a wholesale discount on batches of product that otherwise would have to be discarded? I don't know.
I have eaten a thousand Celeste' Pizza For One pizzas. Sometimes they come up on sale 10 for $10. The last batch I got had an obvious deficiency of cheese! Maybe the cheese ran out at the factory, the pizzas got boxed and sent on their way anyway. Maybe complaints at the local supermarket made some manager put the bad pizzas on sale just to move them out and still make some money.
Only tubes I ever found dry are the acetone-smelling glue that comes with tire patch kits; but that's after I opened them and they sat around for a while.
