NEWS::::: Brown Cow Loses Mind - Joins mini-yogurt Crowd

All of the 8oz. Cream Top Brown Cow yogurt containers have been replaced with the unwanted 6oz. containers.

Brown Cow has decided to "stick-it" to its customers by:
1 -
Deleting its top-selling 8oz. Cream Top yogurt container size - too bad, you lose

2 - Attempting to substitute a shrunken container that NOBODY wants - I NEVER buy the 6 ouncers from any brand, because they are wimp-a$$ed baby sizes. Why do you think I was buying Brown Cow?

3 -
Increasing the price per ounce from 13.6 cents per ounce to 16.5 cents per ounce.
A 21% PRICE INCREASE!!!    (Old - $1.09 for 8oz. size, New - $0.99 for 6oz. size)
The new price should be 83 cents.

Now, not only are you gypped on VOLUME, but you are simultaneously gypped on PRICE.
How now, Brown Cow? Double hose job. Marketing mavens?

I'm not buying Brown Cow yogurt ever again. The fast-hussle principle overrides my desire to buy Brown Cow. Less product at a higher price. What a kick in the teeth. Did they think we wouldn't notice?

Have you noticed that even 4oz. containers are now on grocery shelves? What a joke. Mark my words - within 5 years we will see 3oz. containers. This is unquestionably further irrefutable evidence of the continuing, inexorable downfall of western civilization.    . . . Jan. 30, 2007
