Regular contributor - Etathed - sent us this message and media pack today sounding disturbed and very concerned:
Just picked up this massive jug of Herr's Jalapeno Popper Cheese curls. They were a reduced price and a Prider Sized. Despite the experation date being 6 days away... something is very wrong with these. Very Wrong. They have a horrible chemical like taste and smell. Almost something like a glue like taste. The only way i can describe it is "contaminated." At first i thought it was just a horrible attempt at jalapeno popper flavoring, but no this is "on top" of the flavoring. Horrible Horrible Horrible! If you see this giant tub of Herrs Jalapeno Popper cheese curls I would advise not getting them.
The Fat Pride Times is always leary of deeply discounted pricing on foodstuffs. While we respect Etathed's authority - the FPT has not taken an official stance on this concern - we have the jar being sent to us overnight via Fed-Ex for examination in our 500 foot underground test kitchens.
