Pinkie left a comment on a recent post to say Linda McCartney had stopped making their Fish Free King Prawns. I heard rumours on Twitter and Facebook but Linda McCartney didn’t deny or confirm these rumours. So, I emailed them and got this reply:
“Thank you for your recent email and your patience in awaiting our response.
Unfortunately we do not make the Linda McCartney Fish Free King Prawns anymore, this was due to falling rate of sales.”
What a shame – after twenty years, I was able to have ‘prawn’ sandwiches again and no other veg*n food manufacturer makes anything similar. I can understand a company discontinuing a product if it fails to sell well, but it doesn’t seem like the prawns have been around long enough to give them a chance.
Oh well, we’ve still got the scampi. I will cry if they stop making the scampi. [UPDATE: Linda McCartney has stopped making the scampi too. Sniff.]
