In February we introduced the dreamPuff Rose marshmallow. Rose will not be part of the dreamPuff Favorites lineup. Rose is a special offering for appropriate holidays and custom orders. It has quickly become a favorite flavor for our marshmallow wedding favors customers.
Valentine’s Day we released our Fudge Dipped Marshmallows. This was a major product release…and wow…has it kept us busy! So busy that we haven’t had time to add it to our website. We offered Fudge Dipped Marshmallows in Sweetheart Four Packs or Red Hot Gift Boxes.
Yesterday large cartons from various points in the state of New York arrived on the back of an exhausted courier. There were chocolates and spices. There were herbs, florals and sweets. There were bags, sealers, warmers, torches and a whole bunch of dried apricots.
That’s right. The Spring and Summer dreamPuff marshmallow flavors are almost ready. That is what you were thinking, right?
On a slightly different note…last week a new dreamPuff customer at the Troy Farmers’ Market commented that he had never had a gourmet marshmallow before. The comment got me thinking and wondering…what really makes something gourmet? I’ve read some commentary of the topic of gourmet. What does it really mean to be a gourmet marshmallow? Or gourmet anything. dreamPuff Gourmet Marshmallows. I’m good with the idea. But it takes sort of a tilt in my thinking. About a month ago there was an article describing dreamPuff marshmallows as artisan marshmallows. I identified with that label much easier. As a matter of fact, that label didn’t cause any pause. So then the question becomes why artisan marshmallows vs. gourmet marshmallows?
I don’t have the answer yet. At some point I may need to answer the question.
Oh. One more thing… we’re pretty excited about the new products we’ll be launching in March.
