Today i’d like to talk about Country Crock and the overnight dissapearance of this marvelous spread.
Years ago I’d buy this odd margarine for a change of pace, it always tasted different then other spreads and was nice for a change.
One cold morning years ago after walking through 10 feet of snow to my local grocery,(OK Im exaggerating a little ) Â I was shocked. Â Country Crock was no longer on the shelves! It had completely dissapeared.
How could this be?
A few years ago I contacted Country Crock asking why this product was no longer available in Canada. Was there something in the oils that is now prohibited from Canada?
The response was as follows:
Hello and thanks you for taking the time to contact Country Crock. This product has never been available in Canada, please ask your local grocerer to carry our products. Â Thank you.
Â Obviously, that got me nowhere. I’m not crazy, well for the most part i’m not. I know this product was once sold here, then suddenly dissapeared.
Perhaps the company changed hands, it wasn’t profitable enough in Canada, or one of the ingredients is prohibited.
Can anyone out there shed some light on Shedd’s Country Crock and its dissapearance?
Inquiring minds want to know.
