1.0 out of 5 stars Very tasty when in date -apalling Amazon food shipping policy, 21 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bakery On Main Gluten Free Muesli Apple Raisin Walnut 340 g (Pack of 2) (Grocery)
My original review below. I had an order of this cereal yesterday (the 15th of March). I ate a bowl of them today (16th). They tasted _awful_, but it was one of those things you don't notice fully until afterwards. Now it's around 2 hours later and there's still a disgusting taste in my mouth from them. I checked the date -Best Before the 15th of March!
(I realise "best before" is not the same as "use by", but in this case they're clearly unfit for consumption, although I did eat a full bowl, which I now regret).

Amazon say they will refund me, but it's really really not on. I've had "close" dates from Amazon food shipments in the past, but said nothing. No more Amazon food subscriptions for me until I hear they take more care with this type of thing.

My original review of this product (when it's right) below:

A lot of "Gluten-free" products are afraid to advertise the fact because it's seen as a by-word for "not as tasty as products with gluten". This (and increasingly a number of other foodstuffs) has no problem in this regard because it's possibly the tastiest breakfast cereal ever. I've tried most other 'Bakery on Main' muesli options and they're all delicious. I usually mix them with some (Nairns) gluten-free oats, but that's not essential.
...I also add in some raisins or dried-fruit and/or nuts. The breakfast of kings! -Well, royalty anyway.

I had the same problem of expired goods, so i complained and they promptly sent me replacements, which were again expired!!!!!
I called again requesting their shipping department check their stock before sending.

They sent the goods again; this time it was better.
The product its self is indeed delicious!!!:-)

Mr. VLC says:
Hopefully Amazon uses warehouse conditions good for food and not the same as what it uses for book-storage. "Organic" or otherwise preservative-free food especially needs dark, cool conditions. Rancid food is not only unpleasant in taste it is also quite dangerous. Rancid oils can cause tiny blood clots and stroke. This has famously happened for example with a batch of rancid vitamin-E capsules.
The use by date is for if the product is stored in correct conditions, so is is also possible that if say it is exposed to sunlight or fluorescent light and at warm temperatures, and the packaging is transparent ( as this one is ) , the use by date will be too optimistic as the product will go rancid very quickly.
