Yes, our latest update is that it’s been one whole month since we launched our brand and products in Clearwater and Safety Harbor consecutively. It went by way too fast and so much has been happening since.
So here’s the breakdown of it all:
New Products Update
Rawmmus: In addition to our Original, Lemon Garlic, Mediterranean and Cilantro Jalapeno flavors, we’ve added Chipotle Cumin to the family and are working on a new flavor to be offered very soon once it’s been perfected. The base remains the same, and still no Chickpeas/Garbanzo Beans.
‘Cheese’cakes: Though we’ve had amazing feedback on our Keylime, Cran-Orange and Plain varieties, we couldn’t just leave it there. We’ve added a heavenly Basil ‘Cheese’cake, Salty Cacao and Cacao Cayenne. But we’re still not done here either, we’re testing a few more flavors that we feel we just can’t live without. So be on the lookout!
Preserves: Oh yeah, we totally are doing that! Last weekend we asked for feedback on 3 varieties we put together at Safety Harbor’s Market on Main. All Raw, Vegan, Gluten and Soy Free, of course, and no Sugar or Pectin. So what’s in it you ask? Sssh, find out our secret here. The flavors available this coming weekend are Strawberry, Blueberry Mint and Chipotle Fig.

Packaging & Labeling
It didn’t take long to discover that our packaging needed upgrading, and you’ll soon see the following improvements:
– New labels created for our main products and new items included gradually.
– Crackers and Flat’bread’ packaging has been replaced as the previous one was too big/small, respectively.
– ‘Cheese’cake packaging was improved, but we think it can be even better – feedback, suggestions or recommendations appreciated!
Markets: We had great success at Clearwater’s Pierce Street Market and plan on being there throughout the summer every 2nd Saturday. Safety Harbor’s Market on Main has been our Sunday spot. We’re also constantly trying to make our products available in other areas as well.
We’ve attended Dunedin’s Downtown Market last Saturday they were open and hope to return before they close for the summer. And last but certainly not least, we’ve reached out to both the Saturday Morning Market in St. Petersburg and Hyde Park Village’s 1st Sunday Market and hope you’ll see us there soon. We will continue to create utilize Facebook to announce ‘Event’s we are attending to let you know our whereabouts in advance, so check back to find out where you can find us next!
Stores and more: As always, we’re open to your suggestions and recommendations for stores or other establishments you believe would be interested in carrying our product line, so please keep them coming whether in person or by email and we’ll reach out and keep you posted.
