To whom it may concern:
It is very rare indeed for a packaged food product to leave such a strong impression on me that I feel compelled to write to its creators and share my feelings with them. Your potato knishes, of which I recently bought a package from BJ’s Wholesale Club in Waltham, Massachusetts for $6.99, make the grade.
These knishes are, without a doubt, the most vile, disgusting thing I have consumed in my recent memory.
The unpleasantness starts with the first bite; the filling in these knishes tastes like no other potato knish I’ve ever had, and I don’t mean that in a good way. Although the taste is more mediocre than terrible, the fun is just beginning. After you chew and swallow, you experience the most incredible aftertaste. And I mean “incredible” literally, that is, its awfulness simply cannot be believed. It is this vile aftertaste which prompted me to write this letter.
I’m not a terribly picky eater – I enjoy Kosher airplane meals, for heaven’s sake! – and yet I was unable to choke down even one knish.
I hate throwing away good food, but your knishes don’t qualify. They went right into the trash after that first taste.
