PostSubject: Pop Weaver Popcorn   Mon Mar 31, 2008 3:12 pm

This is the second time I've emailed Pop Weaver to comment on their great microwave popcorn. I bought it on a whim once cause it was on sale and I don't particularly care for microwave popcorn but I noticed I consistently could eat the whole bag, it was that good.


Hello,

I see my local Wal Mart Store #1111 has failed to restock PopWeaver. I am not amused by this. All they have on the shelves is Act II and Orville, neither of which I care for one bit. Pop Weaver is the only popcorn I can eat a whole bag of, if I'm that hungry, it is that good.

I just thought I would let you know of this travesty and I will continue to look for Pop Weaver elsewheres. I have written Wal Mart to say, "I save a lot of money shopping at Wal Mart, you are always out of what I want.". I had hoped this would send them a message, but I will not count on it.

Thanks.

----------------------------------------

Good morning Tom and thank you for your email and inquiry! Popcorn represents our company's only business and we take a great deal of pride in the products we produce and that leave our plant. We are very committed to bringing our customers the highest quality of popcorn at the most reasonable price and, we also want to produce products that meet the health concerns and needs of all of our customers. We continually search for ways to improve our products and always appreciate it when we hear from our customers. I have listed below the stores (other than Wal-Mart) that carry our Pop Weaver Microwave Popcorn products. Thank you again for your email and we hope you will enjoy Pop Weaver Popcorn! Have a good day! Shelli



99 Cents Only

Big Lots

Deal$

Dollar Tree

Duckwall-Alco Stores

Fredís

Gordon Food Service (GFS)

WinCo



P.S. If you will forward me your address and which variety you prefer, I would just be delighted to send you a couple of boxes until you can find a store that carries our Pop Weaver Popcorn!

---------------------

That's pretty cool of them that they'd send me some corn, but I will pass and just buy some at Freds or Dollar Tree. Then a friend conned me into accepting some free corn....

----------------------------------

Hi Shelli, or whomever is now reading this. I was going to pass on the free popcorn since Fred's and DollarTree are close by, but decided I would accept and give the popcorn away to friends as to sway them to also buy Pop Weaver. I would say it would be a Pop Weaver Revolution but this area only has 20,000 residents county-wide.

The brand I normally buy, but am not limited to, is Butter. It is just the most purchased flavor. My mailing address is:

John Doe
316 Jesus Saves Way
Podunk, Ga 39683

Thank you kindly for the offer of the popcorn. I will share it generously in the endeavor to expand the market of Pop Weaver being that it is the best!

------------------------------------

and then I get another email.. this time from Wal Mart....

Holy D Shit! hehehe I opened up a can of worms! Pop Weaver emailed Wal Mart! Laughing

Marla:

This store is in Hartwell, GA which pulls from DC 6055, in Monroe, GA. From my earlier email we are taking outs on the 15 pack Extra Butter, Butter, and the 2 lb. Great Value popping corn, and have been taking outs since 3/17/08. Can we place an order for this DC?

Please advise. Thanks.

and then directly to me....

Mr. Thurber,

I apologize you've had a difficult time finding Pop Weaver in your local Wal-Mart store. We were doing a test in that market to better understand how popcorn brands react in different competitive environments. In the next few weeks, your local store will once again be carrying Pop Weaver.

I ask that you give us another chance to carry the brands you want.

Regards,

Shocked Laughing

Now, as you know I"m not anti-Wal Mart and I hate unions, but this is just too funny! Laughing

-----------------------------

So, I wrote Wal Mart....

Ms. Markum,

It is not to worry, I am not one of those anti-Wal Mart idiots and I particularly despise unions and I will continue to shop at Wal Mart. I would think that product availability is quite affected by the area population and excessive amount of grocery stores in this area. I just prefer to shop at Wal Mart being a guy and I can purchase most of all I need in one stop. You will find weed control, catfood, motor oil, electronics and software, toiletries and food all in my basket at one time.

I wrote Pop Weaver once again to brag on their product and to let them know it is one of the products I will go out of my way to purchase. It would in no way affect my shopping habits at Wal Mart, convenience was just slightly inhibited.

Thank you for your kind email. My emails to companies are more for entertainment effect and product loyalty than complaints. I am a loyal Wal Mart shopper.

LOLOL....I buy Pop Weaver too, in fact, I think I'll go make some now. It tastes great and it's cheaper than the other brands and they don't kill off their employees using diacetyl for butter flavoring.

That's cool that they got back to you.

heh. Interesting!

I seem to get ignored when I try stuff like that.

I've never tried that kind of popcorn. I try to make it on the stove but keep some Orville microwave for when I don't feel like the work.

I'm gonna try that kind if I can find it here.

I wrote them a couple years ago when I discovered them. I was just surprised I could eat a whole bag of microwave popcorn and it was tasty. They wrote me back then too. It's the only nuke corn I buy now. Lemme see if I still have that mail... of course I do! Laughing

Hello,

I see you have been in business 75 years. I do not know how long you have been in the microwave popcorn market but I bought a 15 pack to try. I just tried the first bag and it was very good. I hope to see the quality remain the same. It is rare I finish a bag of popcorn but I finished this one.

Thank you for your time.

--------------------------

Thomas,
Thank you for sharing your thoughts. We are very pleased that you liked the product and hope you will continue to be a valued consumer.

Janice

Hi Shelli, I received the coupons for the popcorn today, maybe it will motivate me to go shop. I do have a hankering for a sirloin roast for the weekend and I need milk. Then I could relax with a movie and some popcorn with a few friends.

My ex had sent me some Orville and I popped it the other night to go with watching Patriot Games. I tell you what, that Orville was just gross. It got fed to the birds, I hope they don't die. The crows seemed to like it though. I wonder if they'd like Pop Weaver but unfortunately there's never much left but a few unpopped kernels to give them.

Thanks again for the coupons!

LOL...yeah, Pop Weaver doesn't leave much in the way of kernels.


Hey, neck, what about starting a recipe thread again?

hmm. I didn't like it. The butter flavoring tasted kinda strange to me.

I wonder if I got a bad batch or something.

Try it again. Don't have any other popcorn for at least a week.

That bag of Orville I had tasted horrible compared to Pop Weaver, might be the flavorings they use, if you're used to one, the other tastes like crap. I wasn't thrilled with Orville or Act II anyway so the Pop Weaver was great in comparison.
