What's up with the scones at Wilson Farms?

I'm curious if anyone else has seen a sharp decline in the quality of these things? I used to go out of my way to get them and the last 2 times a number of weeks apart they've been awful in very different ways.

First time they had expanded to such enormous size that they were tough, burnt raisins on the outside and undercooked in the middle. Today they looked great so I got one and tasted it. It was absolutely loaded with salt. If it were a savory biscuit it would have been much too salty but for a kind of sweet breakfast item it was wild.

They used to have 2 kinds; the ones in the case with the frosting that look like giant unicorn droppings and the "Irish" ones that were on a covered plate by the kitchen door that were less sweet, unfrosted, and came with raisins or blueberries. Too bad, I used to like them and buy a lot of other stuff while I was there.
