According to reports Forever 21 customers are outraged with the company after they received free Atkins diet bars with their orders.

Plus size customers have found it very offensive after receiving their online order to find the diet bars in their package.

One said, "I opened the bag and took the clothes out. Everything was fine. And then when I was trying things on, at the bottom there was a card and there was an Atkins bar in a little bag. It was very insulting, and honestly I like shopping at Forever 21 — but I don’t feel comfortable buying clothes from a company that thinks I shouldn’t be the size that I am."

Another, "YES shame on me for ordering from @Forever21 but why do they have to push diet food on me?? It came with an Atkins bar??"

Forever 21 responded, saying "From time to time, Forever 21 surprises our customers with free test products from third parties in their e-commerce orders. The freebie items in question were included in all online orders, across all sizes and categories, for a limited time and have since been removed. This was an oversight on our part and we sincerely apologize for any offense this may have caused to our customers, as this was not our intention in any way."
