I hope that you all had absolutely wonderful holidays! At our house, they were wonderful because all of my children and their spouses and children were here. We played games and laughed and ate in our Reynolds way. It was a great time to test our Hot Cocoa Bombs on everyone and to get their honest opinions on the flavors and ideas that we have. I can always rely on my kids to give me their honest thoughts and to give me new ways to think about things.
Of course, I sent Hot Cocoa Bombs to my extended family as part of their Christmas gifts. They are all so excited about them! (They say the Bombs are the bomb!)
My daughter, Alicia, ordered a bunch of bombs from me to give as gifts to her fellow teacher friends. She reported that they were all impressed.
Another friend who had tried them ordered a dozen more as gifts.
Everyone is always ready to test a new flavor for me and Madalynn, my artist, has so many creative ideas for marketing. Actually, so does my son Jacob, who is not an artist at all. (His owls would probably come out looking like aardvarks, but that is a different story entirely.) But, he has some great ideas for commercials, should we ever get to that point.
We couldn't help but be impressed that one of us actually received a Cocoa Bomb as part of a gift from a friend!
Well, the verdicts are in from all of our tests and studies. Hot Cocoa Bombs are a hit and we are ready to begin putting them out there for the world to try! I have so many ideas and my legal team (attorney daughter and law-student son) are helping me get my thoughts in order. Lindsey is going to sit down with me to make my business plan and then it won't be long until we will be able to let you in on our recipes and techniques. She is the one who keeps me level headed when I get overly excited. It is so satisfying to have my families support and help in this endeavor.
So, now that the New Year has begun, you can look for more progress from us. Thanks to all of our followers so far and I hope 2015 is wonderful for you all!
