i have been buying organic turkish apricots in the bulk bin at the mangrove ave, Chico,CA safeway for several months.
they are obviously not treated with anything as they are ugly brown in color and randomly shaped. the flavor is obvious that they are dried in the sun and only after they are fully ripe.
Yesterday(4-28-16) i went in and the bin was full of pale yellow and slightly orange dried apricots.
obviously treated with sulphr to keep color and with the pale-ness-obviously not dried when ripe.
i bought 5 anyway.
horrible-i could taste the difference immediately!!! not ripe when dried, likely treated with something to retain color...
NOT what I made a specific trip to purchase.
please bring back the original dried apricots!!
Reviewer is in unhappy mood. Please immediately contact the author of this review to discuss bad quality of dried apricots. Safeway needs to "bring back original product" according to poster's claims.
