Mother Earth Popcorn...Gone

A favorite snack of ours has been Mother Earth Popcorn. Very tasty and with none of the added rubbish that is in many other snack foods.

Lately, though, it has become very hard to find in supermarkets. A visit to their website at www.motherearthfoods.net ominously does not show the popcorn as one of their products!. A quick email was sent and the following reply was received:

"Sadly the Mother Earth popcorn is no longer being manufactured."

Interestingly, Mother Earth is a brand of Cadbury-Schweppes with the products being manufactured in New Zealand. No reason was given for the product withdrawal.

It's a shame that the popcorn is no more. We will miss it.

UPDATE There has been plenty of interest in this blog entry and I am not surprised.
If you would like to enquire/complain yourself, then email:

thank you for starting a blog like this!
my boyfriend was diagnosed with fructose malabsorption a while back and it's annoying as all hell trying to find tasty fructose-friendly foods.

I think it'd be great if you could blog about any melbourne restaurants that are fructose friendly or what foods are edible outside of the home.

thanks again and good luck with the blog and the diet!

Is there any way we can get the popcorn back. Toobs were brought back by customers writing in requesting that they be manufactured again. Would love to see them back on the supermarket shelves
