Dale and Thomas popcorn

In our Sunday paper there was an ad in the coupons that offered a bag (or two) of their popcorn for just the shipping charges. They sent me a peanut butter and a dreamy chocolate popcorn. Absolutely out of this world. They sent me a catalog, too. I would normally not get this excited about popcorn but theirs is delicious. www.daleandthomas.com. This is not a commercial.

    I don't know. It seems to me that at $2.95 per 4 cup bag they are making money on it. I browsed around and the 6 bag sampler, with six 5 cup bags is $28.00 plus $ 6.95 shipping. So if they can ship 6 bigger bags for $6.95 I don't think it costs $5.90 to ship 2 bags.

    OK, I'm a cynic, but if they are really serious about giving popcorn away, why not a coupon for a free bag (no shipping) at one of thier retail locations.

    It reminds of those infomercials where they offer to send you (FREE!!) a whole bunch of somewhat outdated computer discs for only $ 9.95 shipping and handling.

    I received the "free" popcorn the other day. It was pretty good, but I was disappointed in the size of the bags. I agree that free should mean that (no shipping charges). Oh well, another lesson learned.

    Sad to say, there is no such thing as "for free" anymore. I'm finding lately, that everything has a "catch" to it and its usually listed in fine print. That being said, I used to work down the street from a Dale and Thomas and I love their popcorn! It can't compare though to my friend Norma's caramel corn that she gives me a tub of every Christmas. I barley get through the day before I finish it off. Soooooooooo good!
