Mehadrin chocolate Leben- Weird Taste?

My husband has been eating the Mehadrin chocolate lebens for years. The last batch I bought had a really odd metallic, chemical like taste. We threw out the first 2. I called Mehadrin and the young woman there was remarkably UNhelpful and ever so slightly obnoxious.

I guess I'll bring it back to the butcher/kosher market where i bought them, though I would have preferred not to have the local store have a loss. My receipt is long gone and I don't know what sort of refund they could get from Mehadrin.
Has anyone else had this experience with the lebens lately? They're fresh, the expiration isn't till 12/6/11

  1. Yes. Interesting. My kids had been eating it for years and then took a hiatus. I bought a few a couple of months ago and they said that they were "spoiled." I looked at the expiration date and told them they were wrong. They refused to eat them. I threw them out. Don't remember the dates. We should let them know because there are kids all over eating this stuff.

      I'll be returning them to the store, and maybe they'll give them feedback. But Mehadrin had less than zero interest in what I had to say. All the person at Medhadrin wanted to tell me was that I should get my money back from the store, and why am I calling them.

        My family loves them, we just bought a batch a few days ago and no complaints were heard. In fact my family insists that they are the best lebens and won't let me buy the cheaper brand.
