This may not be an important issue to you but like Coke fans when they changed the Classic Coke to the so called ” New improved Coke” real fans of coke were not happy, of course there were those who didn’t know the difference or care, but there were those who cared so much Coke Co decided to listen.
Well I hope that Brach’s Candy a branch of Farley and Sathers candy company, Inc, will also listen that’s why I would like to reach the true old fashion Brach’s starbright Peppermint candy fans.
Those who could possibly come together and get the classic flavor back. I believe those true Brach’s Starbright peppermint Candy a branch of Farley and Sathers candy company, Inc. loyal customers have noticed something different about Brach’s starbright peppermint.
Yes, they changed the look but most companies give their products a new look ( Tropacani didn’t do so well, but that’s another blog story) the problem is they have changed the wonderful strong pepperminty flavor of the Brach’s Starbright peppermint flavor.
I detected a alspicy or nutmeggy flavor coming from the once beloved Brach’s Starbight peppermint. I grew up eating the Brach’s candy do they really think our taste buds tell us lies? My sister lived on Brach’s Starbright peppermints we always wondered might she one day take on a minty smell.
I have called Brach’s Candy a branch of Farley and Sathers candy company, Inc. to express my concerns about the new recipe, I even asked them if they could please add a classic Brach’s Starbright peppermint that would be the original falvor.
There was actually a hostile voice on the other end. NO we did not change Brachs Starbright peppermints recipe. Everythings still the same and that was the end of the conversation. Well of course that didn’t stop me. It wouldn’t stop any determined loyal customer.
So about two weeks later. I went and purchased another bag of Brach’s Starbright peppermint Candy a branch of Farley and Sathers candy company,Inc. This time from another store about 20 min away. The flavor was still strange so I attempted to call again this time I got voice mail.
I left a message with my concerns. I received a call again stating that Brach’s Starbright peppermint Candy a branch of Farley and Sathers candy company,Inc, Had not changed it’s recipe that it must have been a bad batch and they sent me a coupon to buy a new bag.
Well the new design bag of Brach’s Starbright peppermint Candy a branch of Farley and Sathers candy company,Inc Still taste awful to me. I don’t think it was a bad bag, I think it’s a new recipe along with their new look.
I have done Brach’s Starbright peppermint taste test over and over again new look starbright peppermint Vs Original Starbright peppermint. The pic that’s listed is the original version if you notice on the wrapper there is a green peppermint leaf.
On the new version of Starbright peppermint the wrapper doesn’t have the peppermint leaf (hmmm?) and in my opinion its very sweet like the much cheaper peppermints and a very week peppermint but strong alspice or nutmeg taste.
So please true Brach’s Starbright peppermint Candy a branch of Farley and Sathers candy company,Inc fans stand up and do the taste test. Please tell me what you think you will probably have to search for the original because they are disappearing fast. I’m only finding them in the Brach’s lose wrapped candy binds. They’re going fast..Sadly if we can’t stop it that once original super minty taste will be no more.
