Make sure you turn the volume down. Boss is listening to a bad session of "Drums" in the new teeny-tiny Lincoln! See notes below
Here are some sky pics of the WY/CO Beaver Creek Fire that has been raging all Summer just down the way. This week they stopped daily updates as the fire is now under control enough for just "patrol status". The air quality has improved quite a bit. Yay!
Our trusty bowls, from bottom to top, are a visual representation of where we started and how far we are able to go now. Honey Cinnamon all lined up and ready for flavors.
The bottom bowl is what we consider a .25 or "quarter" batch now lol. That's what we started with 5 years ago, unintentionally test batching on an extremely picky crew.
Next up is what was a x4 batch, now known as a x1 "single" batch. That was our first farmers market production bowl and what we worked with until Summer 2014.
Once commercial kitchen bound, we realized we needed bigger bowls big time! The third bowl is a x2 batch, which we are used to for the Honey Cinnamon.
And yep! We hand-process all of the chocolates we use ourselves.
More time consuming than it would first appear.
We sacrifice time for ethics, particularly after we learned about the dark deeds of the majority of "the chocolate industry". That's a whole other blog post we know many of you are curious about. Still pending due to massive granola stir.
12,000 x $2.64 = $31,680 . . .
. . . just for the minimum on shipping. That's a mid-level manager's annual salary! Super lol. And honestly, we just don't have that kind of money . . . yet.
See, we were right about you being part of the granola elite! So thanks to all who are still patient after all. We'll blog back soon, y'all!
P.S. For those who missed the memo (maybe because we haven't written it yet!) we have decided to offer our Hemp Hemp Hurray!, Oatmeal Cookie, Salty Caramel Apple and our Red, White & Blueberry through what looks like through at least next Summer. While sales are still slow due to etc etc etc, these Flavors were available when the Snack Attack came in and they are turning out to be quite the hit. So no worries right now. We'll be making these tasty selections for what may turn out to be far into the future.
