    Ouch.

    I just received this via email:

    You’ve received this email because you’ve recently purchased one or more pots of Rapha Winter Embrocation. Unfortunately, one of our batches has been incorrectly packaged in a Rapha Chamois Cream tin. If you have purchased this product for yourself or as a gift, please check that your purchase is correctly labeled.

    If you have received Rapha Winter Embrocation in a mislabeled Rapha Chamois Cream tin, we ask that you remove it from your cupboard and dispose of it, to avoid any confusion in the future. We of course will be happy to replace this for you. Please reply to this email, stating the batch number written on the base of your tin and we will send you a voucher to the value of the product.

    Please note that all Rapha Winter Embrocation has been removed from sale online, while we check that our existing stock has been correctly packaged.

    Thank you,
    Rapha Customer Service
    I would actually be more concerned if I had purchased Chamois Cream and received a tin full of Winter Embrocation. That stuff has capsicum in it, and I certainly wouldn't want to rub it "down there." Ouch.

    I wonder who the poor soul was that discovered this mistake.

    Brings a whole new meaning to the expression "go for the burn."

    I've never had a need for cream, even on hot century rides. Guess I have a tough crotch. Bought some a long time ago and it was just too weird. Glad I don't need it.
