The IKEA Travesty

food markets. Meaning NO Kalles, NO Abba foods, NO Daim, NO Olesens Lutefisk, NO Marabou Chocolates,
NO Bilar or Finax, NO Annas Cookies, NO Leksands...
NO NOTHING thats not IKEA brand
There are now several angry Facebook groups against their favorite foods being removed
Here are just 2 ANTI IKEA Facebook Pages
I called Wegmans to tell them that they should pick up the ball that IKEA just stupidly dropped.
I am angry! I had to order Fiskbullar and Kalles from Washington state...
Ill never go back to IKEA

See http://www.dn.se/eko...matleverantorer (in Swedish) or http://translate.goo...antorer&act=url google attempt at translating (you get the idea). The last sentence fails, it should be something like "How long the transition will be is unclear"

Their return on investment probably doesn't warrant paying the licensing fees for the amount of turnover they have.

Theyve had it for YEARS!
Perhaps the can replace the particleboard with painted Coroplast?

The contents of their own chocolate is not the same as what they sold from Marabou. They do not even have equivalents for Daim or other specific products last I was there.
What are the chances that the contents of the bottles and containers will remain the same, but just the labels are changing? Is Ikea totally revamping the selection, or just the branding? I'm going to need to take the trip down to Conshohocken and see for myself.

Whitehorse Rd, mmmmmm.

The organic loose teas and the gooseberry jam are fine.

I still can't forgive IKEA for getting me addicted to and them dropping those raspberry gummy drop candies so many years back. I used to by bags and bags and bags and store them in the freezer. Perfection. It's been ages since I last visited IKEA, sorry to hear they have dropped the daim bars, etc. Hopefully some of the foods have just been rebranded.
Same thing here! I think it is just marketing trick, they will make some new brand for their own food products.
Right way to get to the people's heart is trough stomach!
