Are some birds are not eating RSPB Bird Food?

By coincidence I have been talking to two people over a period of 3 days. 

Both  asked me why birds have suddenly stopped coming to their feeders when it is the coldest winter for years and there has been snow, frost and blizzards.   They both live on the Yorkshire Wolds

It transpired both families had bought RSPB bird food for the first time – they both said they bought the expensive  RSPB bird food.  It was at this time that birds stopped visiting the feeders.

Is this coincidence?  What would suddenly stop birds coming to bird feeders that they have been coming to for ages. 

Should they  ask the advice of the  RSPB  advice?

    I don’t have any sunflower hearts in hanging feeders, but I would have thought that their beaks would not be able to get at the food! The bullfinches must be taking advantage of this bird food. Feeding birds does make a difference and seems to help all sorts of birds. Finches do like sunflower seeds. Have you any photos of this?
