What? This is insanity! I call shenanigans. I seemed to have warranted a perfectly rational reply to my somewhat irreverent original message regarding Beer Chips, Yuengling Lager Sauce, and La Choy Teriyaki Sauce…

I apologize for the delay in returning an email to you. The items you had requested above are not available to me with the exception of the Beer Chips which have been ordered through a third party vendor. Arrival of the product should be within the week provided they are in stock with the vendor.The Yuengling Sauce and the LaChoy Teriyaki Sauce were discontinued. Unfortunately, I don’t know if they were discontinued by the respective manufacturers, or by our corporate office. If I can be of further assistance to you, please don’t hesitate to contact me at the store. Our number is 412.343.8020.
Thank you for your continued patronage.
I find it much more difficult to be goofy by phone, so I think I’ll stick to the emails thank you.
I replied & asked for contact info at the corporate office so I could further discuss the Teriyaki issue. I mean, if I can get it at Shop ‘n Save or Kuhn’s… it’s certainly still available. The old packaging was discontinued, but the sauce is still available.
Am I crazy? Has anyone else tried this brand? What brands are you stuck on?
