March 9th, Hawaii –Diamond Bakery would like to please ask shoppers to ask store managers for samples to their new premium Shortbread Cookies instead of taking them out of the box. Over the past few months several reports have been made about missing cookies from retailers including Times Kahala & Mililani.
“Every box of our premium shortbread cookies has 12 individual wrapped cookies” said Gary Yoshioka, President of Diamond Bakery Company, Ltd. “Since November we’ve had multiple concerns from customers who purchased cookies but noticed that some were missing. At first we thought it was a production error but after careful investigation we’ve discovered it’s happening at the retail locations.”
Last year Diamond Bakery added more flavors to the ever popular shortbread cookies now offering them in a buttery bliss of original, chocolate chip, brownie, lilikoi, pineapple, coconut, kona coffee, and green tea.
“We think customers are sampling the cookies from the box” said Richard Davis, Assistant store manager at the new Taste Of Times Mililani “in partnership with Diamond Bakery we’d like to ask the public to just ask a store manager if you’d like to sample a flavor instead of removing them from the packaging.”
Diamond Bakery just celebrated 95 years of business in Hawaii in October “We’re so excited that people are responding well to our new Shortbread Cookies” said Yoshioka “please help us respect the integrity of our brand by not sampling flavors out of the box while shopping.”
