I have been a regular at VeryBestBaking website for many years and I am disappointed to see how the site has fallen. There seems to be no monitoring and the same articles are on the site. I thought th

I too was a daily reader and gleaned much info from this site but it's ho-hum now and I only occasionaly search it--plus points never seem to get you anywhere.

Like many others, I also am disappointed to find the same recipes, articles and memories time and time again - not many new things. The site is not "fun" anymore to go on. When are you, Nestle, going to update and maintain everything like you used to?

I was on Pillsbury and they have great recipes, ideas and coupons!! I am going to explore Hersheys today. Don't need this I have the site memorized now:(

Any more, I come here just to read the "Baking Memories". To be exact, to see what people have to say about this web site. Maybe because it's a Swiss company, their English isn't very good, so they can't keep the web site up to date? By the way, here are a couple of other web sites besides Pillsbury and Hershey - Betty Crocker (and Bisquick) and Kraft Kitchens. I'm sure that there are others.

I'm pretty much in agreement with you all! I do enjoy checking out the recipes each day as I've found some really terrific ones. But yesterday I couldn't even bring any swapped or new recipes up. Totally frustrating so I clicked the Contact Us tab to let them know my problem. Haven't received an answer yet...says 3 to 5 days. But I did have an email from VBB last night that they are doing some updating and maintenance at the site. So maybe that is part of the problem lately. One can only hope so! I love reading the Memories here and sometimes adding a comment (when VBB allows me to...sometimes my comment just won't register here). I just want to encourage you all to continue visiting VBB as well as the other great websites mentioned...Kraft, Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, etc. I also visit them and love the coupons they offer....especially Pillsbury and B.C. Let's just keep contacting VBB and letting them know we enjoy the site but wish they'd maintain and update it more often! In the meantime, enjoy this lovely fall weather! Our New York leaves are starting to look very colorful and beautiful! Happy Fall to all my fellow bakers!!

Wow,I haven't been on in months! I had no idea,but you are all right. The same old same old. I look at things just for the points and maybe a receipe but a lot of the receipes are even the same.

Hi! Did anyone else receive an e-mail today from VBB? They said that some of the sights are going to be down while they revamp their system & that there should be new recipes coming up on the Swapped Recipes. Any way that is how I understood the e-mail.

Yep, Kathy S., I got an email like that from them the other day. They also mentioned in it that they are going to do away with the "Books" and advised VBBer's to print out their Books if they wished to save them. I've never made a Book here, but I'm assuming they are taking about the Baking Memory Books.

I don't have a Book either, but I just thought that everyone should know.

I would like to know where all these posts are coming from. Some are dated weeks ago and this site just started when? Today? I know it was still the old one last night.

Do the administrators think we are not going to notice dates of these posts?

WOW! Did I say, "Just a sigh of the times" before? That was definitly an understatement! Now you have us diverting to Facebook, taken away any semblence of congruity and conveniently leave out any explanation of how to navigate through this quagmire or accrue points. Thanks VBB, you've finally put the icing on the cake, so to speak. Have given you the bennifit of doubt for more than two years, but now I think I'll just give up and go elsewhere. It just aint worth it anymore. Thanks for nothing.

I was just reviewing the comment that I had submitted and was amazed at how many verbestbakers agree. The new website will take some getting used to, but it looks like it might be a winner.

Yes, Cam, these are dated weeks ago but these are the "Baking Memories" I thought had disappeared! Yes! At least I found one missing thing at VBB! It's just frustrating to try to find things here when the site moves as slow as a turtle! There are a number of memories I return to quite often to read the updated posts. I'm sure you agree, Cam, that we are like one big family at VBB and we all enjoy connecting and sharing our memories and stories, as well as our recipes. I guess we are all pretty irritated right now with VBB for the changes. Hopefully, they will get things improved and corrected soon!
