Re: “Rick Eager proves that "fish farming" isn't a bad word

I know these comments were made a few years ago BUT, read them now with what we know and it's a little bit funny! All farms, whether you like it or not use pesticides! They are not going to let insects eat up there crops, period! Something I aways find amusing, you go into a restaurant and ask for iced tea, we are in the south right? They put a wedge of lemon on your glass, most people either squeeze it or just take it off and drop it into the glasss of tea, right? If you don't believe me, watch sometime! That's what happens. The lemon is probably the dirtiest most "infected" item in the restaurant with pesticides, grime, dirt, etc. I have been in the business for many many years and never have I seen a restaurant operator washing lemons before cutting them into wedges. I'm sure some do but not many! Are you really going to get in an up roar about soy? There are many many many other things alot worse and nothing is being done about them and there are simple solutions to fix those problems! Fish farming is something to help us with what is going on in our oceans. Farmer must make money to do it or they can't stay in business! Think about it!

Re: “Black Bean Co.

I am typically not one to complain or write a bad review but I felt this is something that needs to be said and could prevent and issue for customers in the future. My husband and I went here for lunch one day while celebrating our one year wedding anniversary in Charleston. I have a gluten issue (causes severe anxiety and tonic clonic seizures) and their website said they have gluten free options so we thought it was perfect.

We get there and I order a sausage, egg and cheese wrap because the board said it could be made with a gluten free wrap. I ask the server THREE times that she was sure it was gluten free (I even asked the type of wrap so I could confirm, but she didn't know, but promised it was). We get our food, after waiting quite a while, and begin to eat. I should have gone with my gut feeling because I knew something was wrong. The wrap was too chewy to be GF and did not taste right.

After the meal I went back to the register and asked if the lady could get my the packaging for the wraps. She went and got them and as soon as I got them I started to cry. First ingredient- ENRICHED BLEACHED FLOUR. It literally says on the front of the packaging CONTAINS WHEAT. I was livid. The lady (who was extremely sweet) immediately said "I am SO SORRY, we were told they were gluten free, let me go get my manager". She came back rather quickly and said "he wants me to give you a refund", so she did. I then asked if he was going to come out and speak to us because this was NOT okay. She proceeded to tell me "he is too busy", which was absolutely ridiculous. I did not care about the money, I wanted them to know that they could seriously hurt someone if they keep serving "allergy friendly foods" that are not what they are claiming them to be!

Luckily, I did not have a seizure, just a mild headaches and belly issues. It could have been a lot worse. TERRIBLE customer service (the manager, not the servers) for not addressing the issue with us directly.

ASK FOR THE PACKAGING BEFORE YOU ORDER IF YOU HAVE A FOOD ALLERGY OR SENSITIVITY!
