Have they changed mystery shopping companies or did they just stop getting shopped? Was a once a week meal for me!

Thanks,
Cincy John

I, too, had the same problem. After calling the office, though, it was fixed. SR recently initiated a requirement whereby a shopper's profile must have a phone number listed in the cell category, even if it is the exact same as for the home.

Thanks. Just got an email from one of their schedulers about that. I didn't see any emails coming from SR stating such. Wish something had been put out to shoppers.

I'm so jealous that you have Skyline Chili shops. I was born in Cincinnati and lived there 27 years. I grew up eating this chili.

Texas does not have Skyline Chili. Native Texans don't eat beans in their chili and they think I'm crazy for putting chili over spaghetti.

At least they do have a Cincinnati Chili mix in the markets.

The other thing they don't do here is eat ice cream with pretzels. When I lived in Cinti, that is the only way we ate ice cream.

Juanita,

Several years ago, I decided to try Skyline in the freezer section at Kroger's. I immediately noticed a very small warning: Contents not as pictured! Upon returning home, microwaving and opening, I learned that was a gross understatement. Since that day, I have restricted my Skyline to the restaurant.

On another note: Waynesville, a small town approximately 40 miles NNE of Cincy on U.S. 42, serves up sauerkraut ice cream once a year. To me, the thought is sickening, but some folks love it.

I would never trust a frozen "replica" of Skyline. I have never even seen it. I have not even tried the Cincinnati Chili mix (I just make my own chili) but I still eat it spooned over spaghetti with beans, cheese, and onions. Yum, yum.

Have to pass on the sauerkraut with ice cream (as much as I love sauerkraut). Just give me the weiners and sauerkraut (with a side of mashed potatoes and baked beans).

This is almost worth flying out to Ohio for! Best chili, ever. I use their seasoning to make spaghetti, too.
