Buyers Beware - Another ' Rip-Off ' product from T&T!!

Charles Yu | Nov 10, 2011 06:44 PM

Once in a while, for snacks, I love to munch on canned ' Whelks in sweet soya sauce '. Though a touch more expensive, I like either the Korean or Japanese versions since the size of the morsels are huge ( size of a loonie ) and they packed the can to the hilt!.
The other day at T&T, I noticed they are selling a Taiwanese version ( 18 Brand ) of this delicacy. So out of curiosity, I bought a can to try! At $4.99, what a @#$%^%& rip-off!!!! The nickle size ( vs loonie size ) morsels were bad enough! But take a look at the quantity!!! and then compare to the amount of sauce they put into the can ( size bigger than a Coke can ) !! When I poured the contents into the bowl, I simply cannot believe my eyes.......!!
The importer actually has the guts to put their web-site www.bubbletea123.com on the can!!! I wonder how many complain e-mail they have received so far?!
