Vlasic - I'm complaining about your bold & spicy with tabasco brand sauce Kosher Dill Spears.

I have enjoyed Bold & Spicy Spears for a couple of years, and they would bring tears to my eyes the heat from the pickles which I really enjoyed. The last three jars that I got have been just Dill what happened to the heat I'm very disappointed I have 12 more jars in my fridge . I have stocked up because there's only one Walmart store that carries Bold & Spicy in my area and half the time they don't have them .

Vlasic - The farmers garden pickles

The farmers garden chunk pickles are the absolute best pickles you ever sold and now they are all gone.

before they went out of business in the mid 90s Atkins pickles were better than anything you have ever sold.

All of my kids loved the Farmers pickles but like me, they all complained about all the carrots and peppers taking up pickle space.

The carrots were tough and not eatable so why put them in there when the customer wants pickles?

When the local Walmart manager told me they were discontinued, I went to all thew stores within 70 miles and bought them all.

Later, they were on closeout at Big Lots and I did the same again.

I know they are pout of date, but I still have 34 jars and slacked up on how many I eat a day!

bring 'em back without all the filler and they will put sell all your other pickles!

Vlasic - Vlasic stackers bread and butter pickles

I purchased a 24 fl oz jar of Vlasic stackers bread and butter pickles. I have purchased these jars over my lifetime (I will be 70 years old) and have never come across this situation. Every, I mean every, stacker I pulled out the jar was just the skins off of numerous pickles. Did not get a decent slice of a pickle. I am a pickle lover and enjoy your products immensely and will continue to buy them but I would like a replacement jar with your normal delicious pickles. The information off the jar is as follows: [protected]. 11:15. 01300. 8. Best if used by 08/14/2023.

Desired outcome: A replacement jar of your normal pickle slices

I have preferred Vlasic products whenever they are available. However, the latest jar of Sweet Relish I bought was mostly liquid and unusable for anything including tuna salad. After straining out what I felt was excess liquid, I found the relish only filled up half the jar. I would rather pay more to have the same quality I used to enjoy rather than have the quality reduced such that other vendor products are more appealing.

Vlasic - Ovals hamburger dill chips

I could not open the jar. I managed to pull both arms trying. I hit it upside-down on a wooden surface it hard enough I was willing to break it. I considered a hammer, but as much as I wanted pickles, I wasn't willing to risk eating glass. I actually ended up getting rid of them. I've always managed to open them before. Yes, I'm very embarrassed to admit all this, but I feel like any average adult should be able to enjoy pickles.

Product # [protected]

This was 3/31

Desired outcome: Check the machines aren't tightening them more than average?

Vlasic - Vlasic Stackers

We've been eating Vlasic Pickles for many years and have always enjoyed them. However, tonight we pulled a jar of Vlasic Stackers out of refrigerator to put on some sandwiches we were making. These were not 'slices' if Vlasic pickles, but were end slices ONLY. Every piece in the jar was a tough end slice. My son remarked that it looked as though a disgruntled employee put all the pieces normally thrown away into the jar. Needless to say, we were very disappointed in this since we have been a user of Vlasic Pickles...and ONLY Vlasic Pickles for many years. It will be interested to see if your company still stands behind the quality of pickles long expected of Vlasic, or if it will be necessary for us to try to find some other quality brand to purchase in the future. Appreciate a response.

Pickles were not pickled correctly. Were not crunchy at all, tasted and felt like soft cucumbers. Very little flavor and disappointing. This is the second jar I purchased from Winco in Eureka, Ca that was like this. After the first jar, sat on the shelf at home a week before opening, bought a second jar, different style, same problem. 12/01/2021

Vlasic - UPC#54100

The flavor, crispiness and flavor of these pickles was great until he bit something that described as a rock. Unfortunatly he tossed before showing me what it looked like. I did however see him checking his teethe for chips. An explanation to this or any compensation for any of your other products would be appreciated. We have never had any problems with your pepper rings and continue to buy them, but we're over your pickles. Store brands are safer and cheaper.

Desired outcome: Coupon since I have no pics or receipts.

I bought a jar or your stickers and there was minimal if not an y dill in this jar I'm hoping that it's only my jar. I will try one more time if your product is not right I will stop buying your product.

Vlasic - Mild pepper rings

I have been purchasing mild pepper rings and pickles for many years with no complaint. I bought some pepper rings recently and there is a stem sticking out not allowing for proper seal.
I have nothing but good to say about vlasic and hope to continue as a customer for a long time to go. I also have a few food banks and shelters to purchase vlasic predominantly.

Desired outcome: Large handful of free products coupons

Vlasic - Sweet Gherkins

I bought a bottle of Vlasic big crunch sweet Gherkins. We often buy this product. It was EXTREMELY spicy. My mouth burned for 15 minutes after one bite. My wife had the same reaction. It was so spicy. Is this a new recipe or a mislabelled bottle? I kept the bottle for this complaint. I will discard without further consuming upon receipt of your response. I waited on the phone for 15 minutes without a response. Brent Olson [protected]@theolsons.net

Vlasic - Banana pepper rings

The lid has a piece of stem sticking out from under the lid and prevented jar from sealing properly. I have purchased vlasic my whole life as they have always been fresh, no problems or issues ever until now. Seemingly your company is not training product control and inspection or are allowing said poor actions to take place. I don't want to switch brands so I hope you will remedy's this to my satisfaction.

Desired outcome: Handful of free products from vlasic.

Vlasic - Zesty dill pickles spears

I just purchased two jars of zesty dill pickle spears and the color and consistency is different. Both unopened and one jar is very dark and loosely packed compared to the bright green contrast of the other jar. With canning knowledge the unopened jar looks unsafe to eat. Please explain why the same product can be different? We love your product and hope you see our concern.
Thank you graciously.

Vlasic - polish dill spears

best date=Feb. -16 -221 18:[protected]
& best date=Feb-16-22 23:[protected]
Always buy more than one jar at a time
We love pickles
Opened new jar & served
OMG ... A strong chemical taste & smell
No one could eat them so we opened the next jar & it has the very same strong chemical smell and taste
I can't determine if a stronger preservative was used or what
Nasty to smell & left aftertaste in mouth

Is it the entire batch? What happened?
We are now on limited income & don't want to waste our $
There are some quality we refuse to give up and getting Vlasic pickles is one of them but please see if anyone else is complaining. Maybe something went wrong in the processing

Desired outcome: Refund for 2 of the 24 oz jars

Vlasic - Vlasic kosher dill spears

It's not right to sale things that aren't right, this jar was half full and pickels at top of jar, filmed it and pickels floated to bottom air coming out of jar with water, looks like company cutting corners to save money, all jars at this store the same, I paied for a full jar not half, really upset to the point to get from another supplier. I have always enjoyed these pickels for years, but I fill being cheated, and looks like consumer fraud. Just hurt for all these companies trying to save a buck for what has been going on lately. Can't even send one picture said to big🤔🤨🤭🤥🤑😪

Desired outcome: Fix problems be honest, our sale smaller jars

Vlasic - Classic Kosher Dill Wholes 32 FL OZ

I buy these for my husband, for myself I love love the Zesty Spears (No Problem with these). My husband after years and years of buying the Kosher Dill Wholes has noticed the jars seem to contain less product and more fluid. The last two jars I bought for him both had 6 with most ranging around 2 to 3 inches. The pickles were definitely floating free. Has the packaging changed? Or quality control standards changed? We love Vlasic and will continue purchasing our favorites. The products still have the same great taste. Thank you

Desired outcome: We had both watched something about employees in grocery stores or from the company. We want to make sure that is not the case. Thank you.
