(110 Posts)

This thread is for the Flora panel members participating in the Flora Buttery baking task.

Here's what Flora have to say, 'Flora Buttery is brilliant for baking the fluffiest of cakes, and it’s super easy to mix too, even straight from the fridge. We love to use it for icing, as well as in the cake mix (we have loads of great recipes on our website), and it’s a great all-rounder, perfect for everything from spreading on your sandwiches to melting on your spuds. We’d love you to make space for a tub in your fridge and see how versatile it is!"

Panel members were given a voucher to buy Flora Buttery.

Please answer the questions below and add any other comments you may also have. We'd love you to take a picture of your creation and post it on this thread. You could also enter a photo into the Flora cupcake corner Facebook competition for more chances to win! Please note any pictures and/or comments on this thread may be used by on Flora's pages on MN and possibly elsewhere so please only post if you're happy with this.

- What did you bake using Flora Buttery?
- How did the end result compare to what you usually use to bake with?
- Would you be likely to use Flora Buttery to bake with again in the future or not? If so, why? If not why not?
- If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Flora Buttery to a friend or relative? If so why? If not, why not?

All panel members who post on this thread will be entered into a prize draw to win a £200 John Lewis voucher.

Thanks and good luck,

MNHQ

I usually use normal Flora but would use again if it was on offer.

Yes as the results were just as good.

Hi everyone, apologies again for all of the delays with this. I've sent everyone an email, but if you haven't received it, could you please send me a PM?

We've also opened a new feedback thread, so if you could post your feedback here, that would be great.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to PM me smile

Mine has arrived. I was surprised they didn't send a little something else by way of an apology tbh.

Nouseforausername Wed 19-Feb-14 18:49:30

Ive given up on this one! Flora are rubbish!!!!!

DebbieWobbs Wed 19-Feb-14 10:36:17

Still not received my flora vouchers

aristocat Sat 15-Feb-14 08:53:28

Have you seen there is another Flora product test on MN who also had a problem with vouchers sad

Flora know how to create negative publicity!

Any news on the vouchers yet???? maybe its got to the point now where we should write this one off sad sad

ritagcabrita Sun 09-Feb-14 15:13:47

no voucher received so far!

Steffanoid Tue 04-Feb-14 21:24:28

thanks Angelie, hope for an update soon smile

lilyloo Fri 31-Jan-14 22:19:35

Wondered if there was a 'vouchergate' thread, still waiting!!

Thank you Angelie, I know its not Mumsnet fault xx

aristocat Wed 29-Jan-14 14:01:49

Thanks AngelieMN for the update. Shame on Flora for being so inept!

Hi everyone, so sorry but we don't have any news about this at the moment - we've not forgotten about it though and we're trying to find out what the situation is. Apologies again for the huge delay, we'll be in touch again as soon as we have more information for you.

I signed up to be on the Flora panel FOUR MONTHS AGO!!!!! and some of us still haven't got the vouchers. Even if they did run out and need to get more printed, this is still a crazy amount of time and quite frankly I think they are taking the mickey. Please MN can you tell us what's going on??? think we deserve a token gesture from Flora but that wont happen because they cant even get round to sending vouchers out. They sure know how NOT to promote their brand!!!. sad

skyeskyeskye Tue 28-Jan-14 12:38:31

Can MN tell us if this is still going ahead?
It's three weeks since they stated they would be sent out soon...

Well I haven't received my voucher in order to trial Flora (I mean c'mon, how long does it take to print some vouchers and sent them out??!!)...therefore this is my feedback....

I haven't got a clue how it tastes or what its like to bake with but Flora sure do know how to put people off buying it!!!!!!! they are also clearly not bothered about customer service, as the ones who have been messed about would have surely been kept sweet.

aristocat Tue 21-Jan-14 20:39:00

This product test will definitely be remembered ...... sadly for all the wrong reasons confused

Everybody loves it when they get chosen for trials therefore this was a real let down. I still think the people that haven't (yet??) got their vouchers should get a little extra from Flora to make up for it.
