In the year 2016, Venezuela lived a very hard time, there was money in the hands of Venezuelans, but many products disappeared from the shelves of pharmacies and supermarkets, for example coffee, this to give an example, so it was with many products, this resulted in changes in food and many other aspects of Venezuelan life, before this some changes were already seen and on those changes or products, services or food that we consider indispensable are the themes around which revolves the WE102, for this opportunity I was inclined to choose this topic:

The changed product

I didn't always love salads, as a child I used to run away from them, but as a woman I found a taste for them, so much so that if I traveled when I had to eat on the street, if I found in a shopping mall a franchise that sold salads, it was very likely to be my choice for lunch, In the same way near the office where I was there is a mall that has a headquarters of a famous franchise in which they prepared salads, sandwiches, wraps, sweets, milkshakes among others of excellent quality, so when we could some of us went there to have lunch.

In that franchise, in every visit to any of their locations in the city, I dedicated myself to try the entire menu of salads they had and as expected, although I liked all of them, one of them was my favorite, because it had a mixture of sweet and salty flavors, thanks to its fresh ingredients, being prepared at the time and its dressing.

In the same way, in every visit it was very likely that this salad was the chosen one, but in a visit to one of the venues, I felt something strange when I tasted the salad, its flavor was different, I ate, but not with much desire and rather forced, for not losing the money, I even thought it was that something wrong had been done in that venue, in a few words I attributed it to the place and the staff.

Now, one or two weeks later I went with a coworker to the nearby location, the one we visited the most, she ordered that salad and to my surprise she also felt it was different, so I told her about my experience and we decided to ask for information about it, since it seemed to both of us that the change was in the dressing and indeed when we were served we were informed that the dressing recipe had been reformulated because one of its ingredients was missing.

Obviously my co-worker and I were a little annoyed when we told the person who served us that at no time in the menu had they indicated the change in the dressing and that this represented a deception, especially to those customers who already knew the product for having eaten it before and on a regular basis.

Thanks for reading nuevo.png

Finally, in my particular case I did not request that salad when I went to the establishment, so I opted for wraps or sandwiches, in fact soon after I stopped going to the chain first because of the deception and secondly because they raised the prices too much, so I end my publication, knowing that I have not been the only one to live an experience of this type and everyone will have made their determination or decision, but it is very sad and even frustrating when a product that was to our liking, the favorite, is downgraded to such an extent that you take it off your list.

5 years this has been happening to me, it started here, around people that are still here. Homeland security has done nothing at all, they are not here to protect us. Dont we pay them to stop shit like this? The NSA, CIA, FBI, Police and our Government has done nothing. Just like they did with the Havana Syndrome, nothing. Patriot Act my ass. The American government is completely incompetent. The NSA should be taken over by the military and contained Immediately for investigation. I bet we can get to the sources of V2K and RNM then. https://peakd.com/gangstalking/@acousticpulses/electronic-terrorism-and-gaslighting--if-you-downvote-this-post-you-are-part-of-the-problem

The dressing is what gives that special touch to the salad, but not achieving the right combination of flavors loses the magic of a special dish. The franchise should have informed the change in ingredients, which is why so many businesses fail. Hopefully it won't happen again. Regards

That's right, the dressing is what gives that final touch to the salad which gives like the flavor explosion and really the franchises embark on disaster by making these disasters.

Hi @actioncats

This kind of thing bugs me so much. I've had a similar experience before. "New and Improved Recipe" almost always makes me raise an eyebrow because I don't believe them, it's almost always worse when they change something.

There was a place that I used to go to that made the most delicious salad, one that I loved to bits and they took it off the menu. It had roast chicken strips, avocado, bacon, pepperdews, lettuce, feta, and cucumber in it. I started making it at home when they discontinued it. Hmmm, I need to make it again!

Thanks for taking part.

First, I think the same as you about these improvements, because they usually end up in deterioration.

Second, after reading the ingredients of that salad I think I want to visit you, hahaha.

Oh Cristina this is so annoying!
It happens here with drinks, they try to make things healthier and change the ingredients without telling you. You drink and eww that is not how it was before!

Well they raised their prices and changed their ingredients, I think they will be in trouble.

As for salads I have never been a salad person so I would not really notice a difference, this is a great entry thanks for sharing your salad experiences :)

They get creative and think they can improve a product and many, many times what they do is to make it worse for those who already appreciated it as it was and as you point out, they do not warn you and you get an unpleasant surprise.

It makes me laugh when you say you don't like salads, but it is valid, thanks for your visit to this site.

Yes it is as if they do not care at all. Then it backfires on them when people stop buying the product!
Salads ah well, I will eat but I always feel hungry after I have eaten them!

Personally, I never went to that chain again, so when I see them I skip them and if you get hungry when you eat salad with another one or opt for the ones that come with protein and/or croutons (pieces of bread).
