We had a feeling they were going to attack our kitchen too. And that is what happened last night!
T-Rex said they were just trying to help. Let’s see…

At least we know they washed their “hands” before touching the food.

It looks like they know what they are doing…

Yes, they knew what they were doing… Maybe we should consider hiring them! The question is: How did they learn?

Not sure if trying to help, or just trying to make s’mores out of it!

Are they partying with the Turkey? No sense…

No way, they made that!!!!!!! They are ready for Thanksgiving.

Well we guess in the end it was all about the s'mores. Just glad T-Rex didn't burn his hands!

At least they washed the dishes! J

Walshpreneur Fair

Getting ready for the Walsh Entrepreneur fair hasn't been an easy task, since me and Marina are both super busy. Me with work and school, and Marina with work and her wedding plans. But at the same time it’s giving us a push to get some things done prior to our launch in April/2014.

We had to have our flavors set, at least a good considerable amount, to sample at the fair. Prices had to be set also, so we can collect feedback from those who will sample, to gain a better understanding of a fair price to charge our customers. Packaging was another thing that had to be somehow decided and collect feedback as well.

Things are looking good so far - expect for the fact that THE FAIR IS TOMORROW! O.M.G!

Thanks to the Blackstone Launchpad team for all the support and for believing in our product. We hope to not let you guys down. It’s hard to believe that this is happening and our product/company will get exposed to over 200 people that we don’t know. HOW COOL IS THAT? J

In case you want to attend tomorrow, I am sure you still can register in this link

I wouldn't miss out on an opportunity to network, sample our candies and see me giving out our Elevator Speech in public. Actually I do need some support, since I hate public speaking. So please, GO! and cheer for me!!!! J

Flavors we will be sampling at the fair are:

- Pipa
And more.

You can sample them all, but you will have to attend the fair for that ;)

Packaging Ideas

Name: check. Flavors: check, although we are still  - and will be constantly working on bringing new flavors to our menu. Time to work on the packaging; How do we want our product presented? After doing some research on-line to find suppliers of gift boxes we finally came up with some suggestions. We are going to collect feedback from customers in order to decide which ones we will try out.

We are considering having two selections: 1. Weddings and Events, 2. Gifts

1.       Wedding and Events



2.       Gifts



This last one is a second option for the gift category, which we will decide after getting some feedback,  either this one or the one with the lace.

Flavor Ideas

After the name was chosen, Doce Brigadeiro, we decided to work on the Brigadeiro flavors we would like to offer. Even though it is a Brazilian candy our target market are the North Americans. We have to make sure we will fulfill their needs and won’t be doing anything too different from what they love, but still  include some of the traditional Brazilian favorites as well.

Me and Marina spent a few weeks talking about it, between meetings and in cooking/baking sessions we came up with all these flavors to start up our menu. In the long-run we will probably be taking some out and adding others in depending on sales.   It will be all about the customer preference!

Here are the flavors we came up with:

From the top left to the bottom right: The Traditional Brazilian with chocolate sprinkles, peanuts, peppermint, pistachio, almonds, dark chocolate, strawberry flavor with sprinkles, strawberry flavor with sugar, roast coconut, coconut, mix coconut, dried cranberry with Cajun,  white chocolate with rainbow sprinkles, s'mores, and chocolate mint.

After deciding the flavors we then decided to name them - but not a random name. It had to be a name that would have a meaning behind it. Therefore we decided to give them names that were related to the most beautiful beaches in Brazil!  However, they are hard names to pronounce - but they have a meaning and we hope our customers like it, if not, we will change it! Do you have an opinion about that? Check it out the name on our facebook page.  Guess which flavor is my favorite?!
