RE: My Free Kettlecorn

It does work both ways. I bought some Coca Cola products where even though the cans were perfectly sealed, they were half filled and flat.
I wrote to them about it and received coupons good for a case of their soda.
My best story about free food products is one of my best. I was working at a food expo and directly across from the Hershey chocolates booth. I got to talking to them and the next day I brought in a copy of the original Hershey's cookbook that I got from my grandmother. When they saw it, they were amazed at how pristine it was, saying that it was museum quality. I said that was easily explained, as granny did not cook that much, well desserts at least.
I told them that though I was a chef and not a baker or pastry chef, I did like trying to play with making desserts too.
Within that week, I received every single product -ever- produced by Hershey, and I mean everything. Each item was at least a pound. It did take me forever to use up the 5lbs of cocoa powder...
