dreamPuff Marshmallows…A Blog Update!
I’ve been taking a bit of ribbing from friends and colleagues about the lack of updates to the dreamPuff blog. Lack of meaty posts does make it appear there isn’t anything going on in the dreamPuff Marshmallow world. But that just isn’t the case. There is A LOT going on! There have been new products, new marshmallow flavors, new press, and new venues…lots of new.
There have been a few new observations.
I’ve noticed retail stores carrying dreamPuff Marshmallows have started ordering “edgier” flavors. Stores that only stocked Classic Vanilla and Peppermint have started asking for dreamPuff Green Tea, Blackberry Cabernet and our Bananas Foster Marshmallows.
During the opening weekend of the Troy Waterfront Summer Farmers’ Market, Mint Julep Marshmallow was the top seller followed by Lemon Pucker Marshmallows.
Opening weekend of 2010, Classic Vanilla was king.
We’re being asked about new flavors. One gourmet food retailer wanted to know what will be our wildest creation this year. I know the answer to that question. But I’m not going to tip my hand.
I love how comfortable customers are becoming with our handmade marshmallows and nontraditional flavors. It means I get to cut loose and experiment with more ingredients.
This is going to be fun.
