Click on the little house again (3rd button) and choose "upload from my device" and follow the steps (this works when I use my iPad or iPhone, but I can't speak to other devices). Then, to make it a spoiler, type [SPOILER] at the beginning of the post and [/SPOILER] at the end - since there is no spoiler button on the mobile version of the site, you have to add it manually.

 

or b. Email the picture to yourself from your phone, download the image, then upload it to your post from your computer as explained above.

 

Let me know if you have any questions! I know there are a few steps but the process is easy :)

^^^Awesome! I didn't realize that you could do a spoiler from your phone. Most excellent...thank you!

No problem biggrin.gif It's certainly helpful when using your phone!

I'm in the Pacific Northwest and I still don't have a tracking number! My account number doesn't work as a reference number, either! It still says processing in my account.

 

This is frustrating, especially since I am eager to get this box!

This is what happens to those of us Up Here *every single month*.  I'm pretty sure we're the last group to get boxes sent out.  It worked in our favor in September because they ran out of the sample sizes of the shampoo and conditioner, so our boxes got delayed while they waited for more -- and then they could only get the full-sized versions.  I'm very glad about that because I actually liked those two items, and this saves me from having to buy them for quite a while (at the rate I'm going through them because I use a different shampoo every few days depending on what my hair has been like, they're probably going to last a year or so).

I found this release from the FDA - to those who got their boxes, did you receive this Crunch variety? It says it applies to products distributed from 3/2010 to 10/12/12. http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm323822.htm

 

Anyone find anything else?

 

ETA: This article from BusinessWeek says that the recalled bars all have best-by dates of July 13, 2013. http://www.businessweek.com/ap/2012-10-15/thinkthin-bars-recalled-on-contamination-concerns

Beat me to the draw. That is what I found too.  Searched the FDA site, no alert since October that I could find

That recall has been ongoing since October, hopefully they informed Popsugar between then and when they shipped them, and Popsugar made sure theirs were good. 

post #610 of 992

Okay good to know. Let's all make sure to check the best-by dates to make sure they aren't 7/13/13!

Eeeek! I really hope Popsugar caught this and that the bars they are sending out are not affected... It's going to be a major disappointment if they are. Even if they aren't though I see this becoming a major customer service nightmare.... and kinda makes me not want to eat anything that comes from thinkThin.... ever... ever.....

post #613 of 992

would that be my subscription#, because I tried and coming up with nothing...

Ugh, I agree! On both counts lol. Even if the bars are okay date-wise, I think I'll still be iffy about them.

You're not missing much...I got one of the chocolate crunch thinkthin bars from Cravebox a while back and it was one of the worst things I've ever tried to eat...like dry, fake chocolate flavored sawdust, gag.

Ew. Good to know! It seems nutrition/health bars often leave a lot to be desired, unfortunately. Kind bars are the only ones that actually taste decent to me (and I have PopSugar to thank, even though that July box certainly was something lol).

Yeah...I like the more granola-y type, with lots of nuts and fruits (yes, like Kind - they're the best!!) but most of them gross me out, especially if they have that nasty crunch texture, or tout themselves as protein bars (there's something in the texture that is just horrid to me). I do find the Kellogg's FiberPlus bars surprisingly tasty. But I woudln't try a thinkthin bar again if they paid me!

post #618 of 992

I can not eat any Clif bar products due to their peanut recall a few years ago.....I ended up really sick in the hospital w food poisoning for over a week :(

 

Glad I read this...will avoid Think Thin bars- I'm in Canada and we can get these here and stores are bad w taking stuff off the shelf for bars anyways.

 

I'll be sticking to locally made nut bars- some company H&A something they make bars with different nuts and just honey and sell these.  or a lot of Lebanese stores here they sell just a bunch of nuts stuck together with honey and rose syrup as a snack.

I'm not crazy about rose flavored foods but they are usually quite fresh.

I discovered Rise bars this year and they are really good. When it comes to speedy sports nutrition, I am function over taste ( weird I know but trust me it's really practical when competing). That said, I can usually find ways to make it taste good and I will choose yummy ones that give me what I need over the alternative. You can always make your own,, it turns out it is actually pretty easy and of course they always taste better.

All the more reason I dislike food items in sub boxes that are supposed to be "entertainment, style, living" boxes.  I really wish they went with something else or just didn't include them at all (seeing as the hot chocolate and marshmallows seem to be the "must have food" item this month).

post #621 of 992

you guys freaked me out a bit

 

i already ate one and then the FDA recall - I think PS would know better and hopefully this is their way to promote business for Thinkthin.

 

dates on mine are in december - so I'm safe. hopefully.

post #622 of 992

so the bars need to have a date beyond  7/13/13 in order to be safe??

My box shipped and should be to my tomorrow yet I haven't received an email from popsugar. So weird!

 

Has anyone emailed them regarding the recall on the bars?

Agreed! I really like Kind and FiberPlus bars! I had picked up a thinkthin bar when I was checking out at Sprouts last summer. I was starving and the flavor looked appealing. I should have looked at the ingredients (instead of just the nutrition) a little more carefully. It was loaded with artificial sweeteners....?? It was gross and I didn't finish it.

 

I'm curious if anyone contacted PS to let them know about the recall? I agree with everyone that safe or not, a recall makes me wary about trying something even if they consider it "safe" now.

post #627 of 992
Nice work with the spoiler pic smile.gif I like this variation as well!
post #628 of 992

I wonder if the reason they had a bunch of Think Thin bars is because of the recall...like the company is trying to improve its name and is giving out free product.

I'm not a big fan of bars like this either the Luna bars in birchbox always gross me out, they taste nothing like they say there going to! lol Now I'm really not looking forward to those being in my box ha ha I guess at least for me this box is paid for with my referrals so that kind of softens the blow
