    I am not sure. I have not seen it in stores recently. Hopefully readers can help out.

  2. Why on earth would you stop making Snappy Tom!!!!!! It’s a legend beyond my years on earth!!!! There is no other maker of a spicy tomato juice. Make all of the Snappy Tom lovers happy and put it back on the shelf or sell it to someone who will.

      I am not sure Janet. There seems to be a burst in interest in the product this spring, including Google searches.

  3. Maxwell House International coffees are the only ones that I can drink because regular coffee is too acidic and stirs up gastric reflux. Every morning it is the first thing I make and look forward to. I hope it will continue for years to come.

      Keep purchasing them in your store, and if possible, buy out all of the slot at one time, not just one at a time. That will trigger re-ordering.

      Eddy. I am not sure why they do not do this. My only thought is that the bread is so cheap to make, and the distribution cost so high comparatively, that it is just cheaper to have the waste.

      It used to be that you could feed them to the ducks, or something like it, but that is no longer recommended. So not sure what to do.

      They are eminently NOT satisfying as toast. Freezing them sometimes works in a pinch.

      Welcome to America where we get to much of what we don’t need and not enough of what we do.

  5. I have been waiting a long time for Walmart to be able to restock the sausage ,now I can not find the Prairie Belt sausage anywhere! Are you still making these and how long do we have to wait for a supply to come back? I have looked at IGA ,Bilo stores as well as others and all are always out of stock!!!

  6. I purchased for the first time on Monday, November 21, 2016, at a local Walmarts here in Kansas City, Missouri, 2 packs of Queenella Premium Triple cleaned Chitterlings for a relative. I was expecting to eat some of them yesterday on thanksgiving but was told that they were so nasty, that she threw them away. She also took pictures of them and showed them to me. After seeing the pictures, I had to agree that they were filthy! I promised her that in the future, I will stick to buying the buckets of chittlins. Purchasing these so called triple cleaned chittlins was a waste of my money and an embarrassment to me. The new label on the package should read TRIPLE NASTY INSTEAD OF TRIPLE CLEANED!!!!

  7. I can not believe you have discontinued Mothers Iced Molasses Cookies. Every time I went to the store I was lucky to get a bag they were always selling out. You should bring them back they were so good and all of my 4 daughters loved them also. It would just be nice especially now that its getting cooler. Nothing better than sitting in the afternoon or watching a movie after dinner and having those cookies and coffee. Thanks for your time. Wishing all of your company a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

  8. FYI: Therer were 12 sets of original identical twins.

  9. Hi Garland!!! My Mother and Aunt were the ORIGINAL FIRST TONI TWINS!!!! See my post on your wall! So great that you inquired but there should be a follow up on them. You should see them now!!!
