High Price - Ruined New Year with Uncooked Bread

Eat Well | Oct 4, 2005 11:31 AM

I know the back and forth regarding High Rise (High Price) is a popular but tiresome topic on this board. Two schools of thought: 1. worth the price 2. not worth the price. I won’t get into that debate.

However…

Yesterday morning I traveled to the Huron store to get a special Challah for a Rosh Hannah/New Year dinner. For about $6 I picked up a gorgeous round loaf. Now for those of you who don’t know, this round bread is very symbolic and the start and focus of a Rosh Hannah/New Years dinner.

All my guests specifically commented and complemented us on the challah. “Yes, it is from High Rise.” It was beautiful.

How do you think I felt when my guest bit into their pieces and found that the dough was uncooked in the center!!!

Bad, bad, bad. Shame on High Rise.

Again, they fail. If you buy a special loaf, on a special day, for a very handsome price you’d expect that a bread maker would get it right. That is what they do, no, bake bread?

I called and they acknowledge other people are calling, returning and bringing back the bread.

Because I fall into the camp that believes High Price isn’t that great for the price (remember their $9 sandwiches that sit in a bin, pre-made for lunch) they struck out big time. I’ve learned my lesson.

Did this happen to you?

Where should I go next year?
