ORGANIC INTEGRITY QUESTIONABLE
Posted on 07 / 04 / 2011
The Wise Cicada is a nice place to hang out & I especially enjoy the raw juice extractions & smoothies, delicious! Its also the only place in town where you can get hemp milk smoothies & mochas, etc. I am disappointed in the change of ownership in the last wks, I loved the previous girl as she made us feel really welcome & had heaps of helpful advice & time to give. Also I have noticed the salads seem now to be laden with fruit syrups & I hear that the food being served now is largely not organic. I was particularly concerned to hear of a low quality palm oil being used in the choc drops, I was under the impression they were made using raw cacau & cacau butter, but found this not be the case. The palm oil isnt even organic & not from a sustainable resource. Also the staff are not informing customers that battery eggs have been used in the brioche being sold, when the customer is under the impression all is organic. This left me with a very sour taste in my mouth due to the integrity being questionable, the lines being blurred. Please keep it organic folks, or if it isnt please inform your customers, I was very unhappy to hear of this misrepresentation & would only go back to the juice bar because I trust the young guy in the juice bar........I definitely wouldnt go back for the food because I dont trust anymore what I am being served.......
