I'm taking the blog leap.... here I GO .......

Well here I go, off into blog land and first I must warn you.... I am terrible with punctuation and I love commas,,,, and !!! so if you get dizzy, I apologize in advance.
I hope to use this space as a place to write about my weekly musings. Inspirations for my posts will more than likely come from my 2 year old son Nathan, what's happening in my non-stop creative head with regards to stationery design for Inkspot Workshop and my #1 all time favorite topic FOOD!

Since this is my first ever post, I'll keep it short and sweet or salty I should say. I'd like to take this time to introduce you to my new best friend, Snapea Crisps. In case you have never heard of this tasty, crunchy and healthy snack, run to Whole Foods and snatch yourself up not 1 but 2 or 3 bags. They come in 2 flavors, Original and Caesar, which is not as good a the Original.

These tasty morsels are like presents sent directly from heaven! I'm calling them the new Cheetos, but healthier. They are baked, not fried and each serving (approx 22 pea crisps) are just 150 calories and 70 of them come from fat, not trans. This is one sure way to make sure you and your family eat your veggies! Now I must admit, the bag says there are 3.3 servings and I'm not sure who they are kidding, there is only 1 serving in my bag.

The company who makes these is called Calbee and they are in desperate need of a wake up call when it comes to marketing these little guys. They are trying to suggest you use these like croutons on your salad, which is probably why the bags are only 3.3 oz. In fact, Whole Foods just moved them from the snack isle, down to a little lonely shelf...way on the bottom.. in the salad dressing isle. You really missed out seeing me trying to find these the day they moved them. I had to get management involved, and Quickly. Don't worry, I'm checking myself into the Betty Crocker Clinic just as soon as I finish this post.

So, Mr. Calbee, if you are reading my blog (right?) please understand this simple concept..... Snapea Crisps are too delicious for any salad and they most definitely need to be consumed and marketed as a SNACK item, perhaps even the best snack item ever. They also need to come in huge, I mean giant, size bags because I'm tired of getting funny looks from everyone when they see me place my weekly 4+ bags on the checkout belt. Thank you and feel free to contact me directly with any other marketing suggestions:)

Thanks for reading
