|Earthbound Farm runs a market in California's Carmel Valley.|
Earthbound Farm is a company that stands by its products -- as shown by the $10 Costco Wholesale cash card and a letter of apology I received in the mail today.
I go through a pound of Earthbound Farm Organic Spring Mix just about every week, and recently, I found a small, black fly in the dinner salad I made at home. At first, I thought it was a piece of cracked, black pepper.
I filled out the Earthbound Farm feedback form online, explaining my concern. Previously, I complained about premature rotting of the spring mix, and also received a $10 cash card for use at Costco.
At Costco, a pound of Earthbound Farm Organic Spring Mix costs $4.79.
We were looking for a suit for our son this afternoon at a store on Route 17 in Paramus, so we stopped at Trader Joe's just up the road.
We bought uncured, antibiotic-free bacon and hot dogs ($3.99 each), sliced yogurt cheese with jalapenos ($4.69) and Italian-style soy sausage ($3.49).
My son liked the organic, whole-wheat spaghetti I prepared with Fairway Market vodka sauce the other night, so I bought two more one-pound packages of the pasta ($1.39 each).
The fully cooked, baby back pork ribs with BBQ sauce were $9.99 for 24 ounces, but the meat is conventionally raised. Unfortunately, Trader Joe's stopped selling naturally raised pork ribs from the Niman Ranch.
Our last items were a large container of organic plain no-fat yogurt and a 26-ounce jar of organic vodka sauce ($2.99 each).
