An Unanswered Letter to Melinda’s XXXXTra Reserve

Melinda’s XXXXTra Reserve
Figueroa Brothers, Inc.

Irving, TX 75038

Dear Melinda,

Shouldn’t your product be an age restricted product? Recently I saw a woman buying a bottle of your “Melinda’s XXXXTra Reserve” hot sauce and she had an infant with her! While I have no proof she intended to feed this to her child wouldn’t it be best to err on the side of caution?

Kids are curious, and, if you ask me, having a bottle of “Melinda’s XXXXTra Reserve” hot sauce in the house is akin to having a loaded gun in a daycare! Do you think I should have called DHS? Am I as complicit in this act of neglectful parenting as you are?

I am sure, as with guns, that when used responsibly your hot sauce poses no threat to most people, but I think you have to agree that we need to place a priority on the protection of children! I think this could even be turned into a great marketing campaign! “Not for the use of those under 21,” has gone a long way toward making alcohol desirable to minors. Something like this for “Melinda’s XXXXTra Reserve” hot sauce might work just as well for you.

Oh, and if I had noticed you were in Texas before I started writing this letter I wouldn’t have used a gun analogy. Sorry about that.

Awaiting your prompt response!
