One of the best things about summer is I have the time to go for my long and solitary bike trips along gorgeous Lake Michigan in the morning during the week. It's my time to "think", really to listen. It helps clear my head and pave the way for what's next. It's been a busy year so far and Terry's Toffee is doing so well, I'm so honored and grateful and quite honestly at times am at a loss for words to articulate how I feel. There is also a hidden gift in these rides, I get to start planning the Fall and Holiday Season, without any pressure.
We are working on bringing in gorgeous new hat box designs for our customers this year, as well as taste testing a "low-sugar" toffee. We've heard the request a number of times and have absolutely listened. I just wasn't inspired to move forward because I didn't think there was the right product out there to make a toffee that is still going to taste great - and be low in sugar. I think I found the right product and it's 75% less sugar than cane sugar - and it's all-natural! It tastes great - so we are presenting free samples to our customers this weekend. We'll see where it goes! It's up to you!
I've got a few other ideas taking root, nothing ready to share at the moment. I trust all is well with anyone who might read my blogs. I'm sorry I haven't written in a long time. I hope to do better. I was aching for a blog on my site - now I have to sit down and do it! Between this, twitter, facebook, emails, texts, phone calls, sales, marketing, PR, life and creating a balance in the middle of it all...well it's challenging. But you know that! Till next time - have a "sweet" day!
