Wholly Guacamole's packaging change costs them my business

For about ten years, I've been a huge fan of Wholly Guacamole. The quality of their product is better than any similar product, and when my supermarket puts it on sale, it's more affordable than making my own guacamole from avocados.

But now that they've abandoned their sensibly-sized packages in favor of an "easy peel tray," I'll only be buying it when I'm going to serve guacamole to a group of four or more. Whether alone or with my girlfriend, the tray's size is too much.

Also, the #7 plastic they use frightens me. I'm very conscious of the plastics that come in contact with my food, and recognize that all plastics contain some harmful materials, but the #7 is a mystery designation, and I'm very leery of eating food from it.

I tried to contact the company through their website, but received this bizarre message:
