Letter To Consumers From Lisa Allen


Barry & Lisa AllenTo Our Budget Saver Friends and Fans,

By now I’m certain that you’ve probably noticed the empty shelves and the absence of Budget Saver pops in your favorite retail store.  It’s painful for our Tribe knowing that we are not able to produce our pops fast enough this year to fill your freezer and satisfy you on these hot summer days. 

Earlier this year, we made a difficult decision to stop production in our facilities so that we could make some necessary improvements in equipment re-engineering, production process changes and schedule changes to absolutely ensure that we are providing the best tasting, highest quality products possible.  We won’t settle for anything less.

You and your family are that important to our Tribe.  In spite of our ability to produce over 2 million pops each day, the timing of our production shut down has made it impossible to catch up to your needs this summer.  With all of our effort and hard work, we simply can’t make enough to fill demand this summer. 

Our Tribe believes, and you deserve our commitment to producing Budget Saver products flawlessly, not just quickly.  

We truly apologize for our inability to serve your summer-smile needs. We cherish your loyalty and ask for your continued patience as we work through these challenges for a few more months.

With friendly thanks and best wishes,

Lisa Allen

CEO, The Ziegenfelder Company
