I Am Sad

Here is a response that I received from Kanro regarding an email that I sent them about their Milfrutts candy.

Hi Jalna,

Thank you for your inquiry about our product.
(So nice that they're responding, yah!)

Unfortunately, the product you asked about is available only in Japan because of FDA restriction on coloring ingredients.
(Oooh, it's the coloring ingredients that the FDA doesn't like. I was wondering.)

We also regret to inform you that the product will be discontinued this month because of its declining performance in Japan. You will not have a lot of chances to purchase it even in Japan.
(Whaaaaat?? NOOOOOO!!! Say it isn't so!!!)

Have you tried Pure gummy which is one of the best gummy candies in Japan? Those are available in US. Please try them!
(I replied that I would try them, but I actually don't really care for gummies.)

Your blog is very interesting. I enjoy it very much.
(Awwww, so kind.)

Thank you again for your interest in our product.

S. Yamamoto

Oh no!! That is really bad and sad!!! Maybe you can do a YouTube video - like your dancing one but about Milfrutts and send it to the company and everyone make it go viral so they get attention and keep making it.

Do they have a website?

j: LOL Mitch knows you, you candy hoarder! At least you know that it's being discontinued so you can buy up as much as you can. I've had some fave products disappear and never reappear again. Go get 'em! Imua. -N

That's such a good idea, Aunty. I should do a commercial for them. I think that's the problem . . . they're not marketing it properly. They're focusing on the Puré Gummy.

N, Mitch does know me well.

Really yah, Les. I'll put your name in.

Awww, thanks for looking, Kat.
