I live in Dallas, TX and shop frequently at your Preston Rd. store. I usually buy the small boiled shrimp package which comes with one cocktail sauce which is fine. Today I bought a medium and I just ate it for dinner...yum! But I ran out of cocktail sauce since there was only one in this larger portion. Will you please start putting two portions of cocktail sauce in the medium size container of boiled shrimp?

@Sheryl: I'm not sure which packaging the Dallas store uses, but I imagine there's only room for 1 container of cocktail sauce. That said, please ask a Seafood Team Member for an additional container of sauce.....they'll be happy to give you another one. Thanks!

Do you have a product catalog? If so I'll send you a mailing address. My daughter gave me some jams for my birthday, first I had heard of Rare Bird. Thanks

@SANDRA - Thanks for your question. We do not offer a product catalog at Whole Foods Market but it's possible that the Rare Bird Preserve company does. You can inquire with them on their website at http://www.rarebirdpreserves.com/Contact.html. Good luck!
