I’m proud to announce that we won first place in the Desserts, Candy, Cookies or Crackers category of the 2009 KosherFest New Product Competition! We submitted our smooth peanut butter bark and our crunchy variety too. Each is kosher pareve, as well as lactose-free and casein-free. The judges loved both! Winning this sort of award is a big deal for the store. It’s an exciting development in our store’s growth as we continue to serve our customers who either choose a particular dietary lifestyle (kosher, like me) or must have sugar-free, lactose-free or gluten-free diets because of allergies.
In other candy news, our taffy apples and our sugar-free English toffee were featured in the Sweet of the Week webcast at 24/7 Moms. Since the store is geared toward family fun, we’re really excited to be involved with and get support from the mom-blog community. The webcast aired Tuesday, October 20. Give a listen and see how they weighed in.
