Fonde is starting to ship!

Posted by Michael Finizio (Creator)

Hey Everyone, I have 4 pieces of awesome news!

1) Fonde is starting to ship next week, 2 weeks ahead of schedule! Due to the high demand I've received since the campaign ended, I doubled production capability and am using the excess capacity to to get you all your pins sooner!

2) Starting next week, will be featuring the All-Walnut version of Fonde in a soft-launch leading up to an exclusive Black Friday launch. Food52 is one of the top retailers I was hoping to land a retail deal with so this is really exciting.

3) Both days this weekend I'll have a booth at the Out To See Festival in the Seaport district of Manhattan. I'm humbled and honored to be a featured presenter and hope to really spread some ravioli love. You can check out the action by following #OutToSee on Instragram.

4) Thanks to all 623 of you, we've officially planted 520 trees through the Arbor Day Foundation!

I can't thank you all enough for your support, none of this would be possible without you.

      Awesome, thanks for the updates, one of the best things about kickstarter is that 'involvement' through updates.
