The McClellends have a unique product that no one else can duplicate, I am sure plenty have tried. When they are done, so are all their unique blends. I have 36 different flakes in my cellar and only one is made by MC. There are so many other great blends out there and if I took away my one MC blend, I would be perfectly fine without it.Seems like there is demand. I'd be shocked if somebody doesn't fill the void.
