I after my second to last purchase from them, I vowed to not participate again but we LOVE 9 grain bread I went ahead and participated two weeks ago. Again, I was so disappointed in (low) level of quality of the produce they offered. The lettuce had was completely brown inside and went directly into the trash. The nectarines were very, very hard so I left them to ripen a bit but they rotted within four days (and were still hard! how does that happen??). The other items were meh...
I started having a lot of questions that could not be answered as Bountiful Baskets do not answer emails (I've tried).
With the abundance of local produce available, why was everything from California, Mexico and places other than Arizona?
Why are there grocery stickers on some of the items?
Being a slightly suspicious sort, I wondered was this "co-op" legit and began doing some research. I found Articles of Incorporation filed with Arizona for Bountiful Baskets with Sally & Tanya being the owners. Thing is..it's a FOR PROFIT company.
Wth? Can anyone add to this?
Oh, and if I could just buy their bread somewhere else..it's amazing but not identifiable as the bags are unmarked. Can anyone enlighten as to the bread maker? I would be in your debt ;)
