 Foodies Wanted For That Nutty Redhead Praline Gourmet Nuts!!!

Who wants healthy comfort food?? You deserve to be good to yourself!

That Nutty Redhead has created the most mouthwatering, all natural, certified Gluten Free Praline gourmet nuts. "Go nuts" with my all natural almond & cashew blends, in delicious artisan flavors, based on my Victorian Grandmother's recipe.My family owned a candy factory in the early part of the 20th century, so making scrumptious confections is part of my history since grade school. I'm picking up where they left off. 

I want to give you the best of me and my products so that YOUR LIFE CAN BE A LITTLE BIT SWEETER along the way. :)

My Mission:

To provide delicious, high quality, all natural snacks with wholesome ingredients that YOU can feel good about eating. I put my heart and soul into every 'made to order’ small batch of almonds & cashews. My nut blends are awesome on ice cream, salad, in yogurt, cereal, with granola, or all by themselves!

I take raw almonds & cashews and ‘steam cook’ them. You steam vegetables to keep the nutrients in, so why not nuts? Then I add all natural spices and Gluten Free flavorings. My scrumptious gourmet Praline nuts are a 'softer', fresher nut, and, frankly, just plain easier on your teeth. They're similar in texture to the oh-so-healthy Sprouted Nuts. Look at it this way, if not for yourself, pledge for the Baby Boomer in your life. :)

I'm totally committed to using all-natural ingredients/spices, locally sourced when possible to support my community, and I will never use preservatives or anything artificial. Period! There's never anything that you can't pronounce in my nut products. My ingredients come from respected American companies. Quality is very important to me, as I’m sure it is with you.

I believe you are what you eat. Study after study proves that tree nuts are healthy. You've all heard of the Mediterranean Diet? Nuts are an important element of the Mediterranean Diet, the only diet clinically proven to help you live a longer and healthier life. Whole Foods Market loves the healthy aspect of my product, now that's saying something!

With that, I say:"Live a Little, While You Live a Little Longer"

The Nuts & Bolts:

I need you to help me make this happen! Recognizing the health benefits of my product, Whole Foods has expressed an interest in my carrying my product, as have a fair number of other grocery store chains and boutiques. Now with a feature article in the Winter issue of ‘Edible Boston’ magazine, my product visibility will be even greater! http://edibleboston.com/that-nutty-redhead/

Having the proper ‘pro-packaging’ will open endless doors of possibilities for That Nutty Redhead Praline Nuts to get into the hands of healthy minded consumers. With that said, I have enlisted the talents of Brian O’Connor who will design the desired final artwork based on the incredible ‘brand logo’ design of Josh Stebbins. The new packaging will include a TNR description, a UPC code, and the required nutritional labeling. Finally, I have elected to go with standuppouches.net for this purpose, as they are the best!

First, though, I need great people like YOU on my team! I want you to be a part of this from the ground floor. You will then stay with me every step of the way as TOGETHER we make this Gluten Free snack available!!

Word of Mouth:

Don’t believe me? A few of our Customer Comments follow for your review:

"OMG they are all FANTASTICAL! I told everyone, "They're ALL MINE. I warmed them a few minutes in a dish in the microwave like you said and OMG!!!!!!!!!!" ~ Vicki

"I have to order more nuts, and my order just arrived, to get these wonderful treats! One of my sons grabbed the bag, popped some into his mouth, pronounced, "These are great...order more" and disappeared with the package to his room! I will have to start hiding mine." ~ Margaret

"Latest order received. Latest order eaten. We may have to move in with you." ~ Meg

This came in from the owner ofStandUpPouches.net, David Marinac, who is a wonderful supporter of That Nutty Redhead gourmet nuts. He will be my packaging manufacturer. He writes, "I just love these!! The flavors are incredible, from sweet and decadent to salty and spicy, these are NOT your average nuts. Please try them, by themselves or with your favorite recipe. These are perfect with breakfast meals through dinner!" David Marinac

Marketing:

A stronger package of talent and resource you will not find. Product, Brand, TV, Magazines, Books, Personal Appearances, and a Strong Social Networking presence, all united in one focused and determined direction. I suspect that, by now, you have come to understand that there is more to That Nutty Redhead, than That Nutty Redhead! Recognition, through years in the public arena is a strong force in the marketing of anything. I wish to assure you that all my experiences will be brought together in the marketing of my That Nutty Redhead Product line. I want you to be confident in my product. Please feel free to contact me with any other questions that you may have at ThatNuttyRedhead@gmail.com

Risks and challenges

1. Keeping both feet on the ground is quite possibly the greatest obstacle to any business so young. Though I both thrilled and gratified at the budding association with Whole Foods, it is of utmost importance that I continue to develop organically, a grassroots network of smaller 'Cash-On-Delivery' stores, boutiques and markets. The cash flow must be constant and immediate.
2. Creating accounts with varied sources of the necessary ingredients, i.e. Cashews and Almonds. I will need source flexibility in this somewhat 'sensitive' market.
3. Adjusting to public tastes. Watching trends. Creating trends??? Yes, and I believe that I will have something else tasty, very shortly, that you will all like very much.

Qualified? I'm doing it now. :)
