>Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but…

July 19, 2009 § 3 Comments

Kellogg’s could have tried a little harder. Their “gift” of appreciation for my dad’s years of service and dedication to All-Bran is just about the least they could do.

Items enclosed:
* Kellogg’s oven mitt
* Tony the Tiger key chain
* Kellogg’s refrigerator magnet
* Easy as Pie recipe brochure
* Morningstar pamphlet with list of products
* Kellogg’s holiday recipe booklet (complete with all the Christmas foods my father knows and loves)
* Generic thank-you note: “Thank you for contacting Kellogg Company. We sincerely appreciate your interest in our company and products. Please accept the enclosed with our best wishes. Kellogg Company. Consumer Affairs Department.”

I hope the Kellogg’s gift was full of much more exciting presents pre-recession.

Maybe it’s time to switch to Post? I wonder what Post’s thank-you package includes.

    >Kellogg's really lost a great chance. Apparently, not only am I not going to be on their boxes, but now thanks to my all knowing daughter, I have found out that Post has a directly competitive product that I had not previously heard of. Now if Publix would only sell Post 100% bran at 2 for 1. By the way, no need to send me the gift pack, and feel free to use it as your own. Love, dad

    >this is very, very lame. how could they send such a crappy gift after seeing your father's pantry?!? they could have at least sent a coupon or two. a coupon combined with the Publix Buy One Get One would have been quite a deal.
