Just a little CONSerned

Common Sense & Family Matters

Consumer ripoff Alert

Everybody loves a nice rack of ribs on the BBQ once in a while unless of course you’re a vegan, and in that case there is nothing I can do for you. So I noticed this tempting looking package of ribs at Giant Tiger today whilst I was perusing the frozen food isle, and I thought like everyone else likely would,  yummy! However after getting home and heating things up to get cooking, two tiny little pieces came out of this enormous box, and we were shocked.

This cost $10.00, at Giant Tiger.

Now either one or two pieces are missing from the package, or the price is too high, and the packaging is outrageously misleading and environmentally insulting.

COBBLESTONE FARMS, you should be ashamed. For the same price at a grocery store I could have purchased twice as much and be able to see it first. I guess consider it a lesson. Must be a Liberal owned company.

  1. Their emails all bounce back AND their 1-800 number on their website is also unserviceable! My box, bought today, was identical to the one above… and so were the contents!

  2. I too was ripped off this company should not be in business I bought this at no frills and they should not be buying this stuff to sell, from the big box to the little portion of meat this is just wrong.

  6. I just cooked these and I was delighted by the tenderness and the great taste. I had a total of 10 ribs being 2 racks of 3 ribs and 1 of 4. I will definitely be trying these again! Sorry for those that had a lousy experience – mine was great! 🙂
