Dear Philadelphia Cream Cheese,

I really like your cream cheese, but was wondering if there was something better. If you could let me know that would be great!

Thanks,

Scan of the letter from Philadelphia Cream Cheese

Commentary:

They gave me a coupon “Good for ONE FREE Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese (any variety) product up to $3.69,” which pretty much rocks! A good return for being a jackass if you ask me.

I think they missed a great opportunity though. They hit me with what I assume is a standard marketing response. They could have just written back, “In our opinion there isn’t anything better than Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese.” Answer the question! Might as well say you’re the best.

For the record, I really do like Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese! Yum yum.
