- A woman took to social media to share a video of a cake that she bought from Pick 'n Pay, which was old
- Social media found it hilarious, saying that the cake seemed hard and heavy
- The store responded, saying that it would launch an investigation
A Johannesburg woman called out popular grocery store franchise, Pick ‘n Pay on social media for allegedly selling her a old product. The man took to Twitter to rant about purchasing stale cake from the store’s bakery. She shared a video showing the poor quality product, leaving South Africans feeling disappointed and completely shook.
The woman seemed completely disillusioned with life after the incident, demanding to know how the store could “play him like this”. Social media could sympathise with him and imagined getting home to dig into a delicious slice of chocolate covered cake, only to find that it is hard and stale.
To make matters worse, she couldn’t even return the cake to the store because she left without waiting for a receipt because the cashier was taking to long to print it. She was too eager to get home to his tasty treat to wait for the receipt, Briefly.co.za learned.
Other users jumped at the opportunity to turn an unpleasant situation into a profitable one, especially since she had taken a bite of the cake and claims her stomach didn’t feel quite right.
To ensure that such a tragedy does not happen to anyone else, she reported the matter to the store.
The store responded over social media and took his contact details to begin an investigation.
Social media users were amused by the whole affair and wanted to know if the cake was heavy to carry around because it was as hard as a brick.
Another user suggested that the grocery store “stick to its lane” and leave the baking to other companies.
