Open Letter to Raw Indulgence

(I bought a case of Spirulina & Cashew Raw Revolution organic live food bars and had a few things to say about it....)

Please describe your complaint

First of all, I want to thank you for making raw, organic, live food bars!

Second, as someone interested in health, I would certainly not mind a lower sugar (agave) content. I don't need super sweet foods and care more about the protein and other nutrients. Besides, agave is not a healthy sweetener.

Third, and the reason I am compelled to contact you, is that when I received my case of bars, and opened my first bar, I was surprised by the size. Not that it was falsly advertized, exactly, but because it's contained in at least a third more packaging than is necessary. A huge empty area of unecessary packaging. There are discerning consumers out here that do care about this kind of thing. I really hope that the plastic wrapper was not created this large to fit the quote about about "healing the global ecology"... could that be more ironic?

Please tell us what you would like to have done in response to your complaint

Reduce the size of your packaging!
Reduce, or remove, agave and use more dates or other dried fruit?
Sending me other flavors of bars to try would be awesome and I'd tell everyone you're a wonderful company that listens.
