They ruined the best smoked sausage
Posted by Starlord on 07/09/2011
When we had our hot dog stand in Arizona, we used JOhn Morrell Smoked Sausage and hot Smoked Sausage, which we purchased in a three-pound, 16-pack. The sausages were 1/4 lb apiece, and we served them on a French Roll. It was good to advertise a quarter pound sausage on a French Roll. We have been buying the John Morrell sausages since, and it got to where the only place we could find them was a business called Cash and Carry in Olympia, WA. C&C is basically a restaurant supply house, and we were thrilled they carried the sausages, as the stores had gone to carrying a two-pack of long smoked sausages. Our son stopped at C&C the other day to pick us up a couple of packages of sausages, and was informed that C&C no longer carried the Morrell sausages. He finally found John Morrell Smoked Sausages at an IGA store in Rochester, WA, for better than $6.00 per package. There were still 16 sausages in the package, but they were the same size as regular hot dogs. In addition to that, they had very little of the taste we had grown to love. We have never been fans of Basr S Smoked Sausage, as it is greasy and has an off taste. I have noticed BAr S has gone to a 2.5 lb package. Crystal contacted John Morrell and was told that people had requested the sausages be made smaller to fit on a hot dog bun. Horse puckey! They listened to a few vocal malcontents and never consulted the loyal customers of their products. It is my experience that those unhappy often complain while the people who are happy don't say much. John Morrell has given up the claim of the best smoked sausage, and shoule we ever start a new hot doggery, John Morrell will be conspicuous by it's absence. Email John Morrell and lte your voices be heard. This is a travesty. In all fairness, JOhn MOrrell has made arrangements for Shoppin' Kart in Chehalis to carry the Smoked Sausages, but I really don't see us purchasing any.

It sounds like they cut back on quality ingredients and made the size smaller to save money-at the expense of product quality. That's a real shame. From your description they must have been pretty good at one time. Good review, Starlord!

Seems like everyone is skimming down on product size to save money. Good review Star

That sucks Star, maybe if they get enough feedback they will change it back.

I also miss the 16-pk hot smoked sausages! I am in NC, and used to buy them at Piggly Wiggly. Within the last 2 years, they disappeared. Now, Food Lion sells only the pack with the 2 long sausages, in smoked and Polish. I have been all over the internet and cannot find where to buy or order the old 16-pk. I am very upset b/c they were the best smoked sausages I've found. I also used to buy them in VA at the commissary in Petersburg. What is the company doing?

I've used the Hot Smoked Sausage which came two in a pack which they used to carry at various dollar stores locally. They no longer carry the John Morrell brand due to cost. That's o.k. with me as I am still willing to buy if only I could find them. They had a great taste and I have not been able to find a sufficient replacement. I can't find them on the internet.
Can anyone help me?
