They come off the line - a little "over" or a little "under" weight.
They can't be sold as individual bags, by law - but we can sell them
"by the pound" ---- and you get the big savings!
below contain the very same packaged products we sell in health food stores
all over the U.S. -- with one notable exception: the net weight
of the bag's contents are outside the accepted "range" -- what
food industry people call "overs and unders."
Most operations destroy such
bags and recirculate the contents back into feed hoppers.
That's a waste of material and labor -- especially since
the product is still fresh, and except for weight, is
the exact same product sold at full retail.
We do not warrant the weight
of any individual bag within an "Overs & Unders" shipment.
What we DO warrant is that the total net weight of each
"Overs & Unders" box sold has a net weight that meets or
exceeds the net weight listed. So, for instance, the
"Two Pound" varities below are guaranteed to have two pounds of
product -- regardless of how many individual bags are
in the box. We don't count the bags - instead, the box
is sold by ITS net weight.
In the order section
below, we indicate the average number of bags that
a given shipment will contain ("Avg. # Bags"). This figure is derived by
dividing the stated net weight of each small bag into
the net weight of each "Overs & Unders" box and rounding
to the nearest whole number. This figure
is provided for approximation purposes only. Note that
we also provided a breakdown of individual bag cost.
As you might surmise, this is derived by dividing
"average bag" number into the cost of the "Orders & Unders"
Mix & Match:
At no extra charge, we will "mix and match" the bags within
an Over & Under order to give you more flavor
variety. Unfortunately, you'll have to call this in to our
order line (800 256-2253), since the possibilities are so
endless. The "mixed" code number is 699-2-OU.
