“Did you leave room for dessert?”

September 28th, 2009 (franklin)

Why at the end of every restaurant meal is this same question (or something very simliar) being asked?   Well, it happened to me (again) last Saturday night and I tend to have the same answer, “No, I think we are fine.”  I wonder how many restaurant diners are asked this same or similiar question at the end of every restaurant meal across the U.S. and respond this exact same way?   At $8 – $12 for a dessert in most nicer restaurants a couple of “Yeses” could really help boost the check average and regain some lost sales due to less diners.  As a diner I want to be sold on dessert.  As an ingredient manufacturer I have a stake in the game as well.  I would love to change the way desserts are sold in the U.S.  and create the “No” Proof Dessert (thinking out loud here).  Does it need to be lower in calories?; or have less fat?; and, of course still be decadent.  The current way to sell desserts across the U.S. needs a fresh approach.  Since our mission is to Re-Invent Cream Cheese, we might just have the solution.

“Cream Cheese Season” has officially arrived

September 25th, 2009 (franklin)

Well, “Cream Cheese Season” has officially arrived.  That’s what we call the months of September – January around here.  Just when the weather starts to change, kids are back in the swing of it at school, and the holidays appear right around the corner. Did I just say holidays? Only 62 days until Thanksgiving!

Make it easy on yourselves and leave the holiday snacking and appetizers to us.  Our new Green Mountain Farms Gourmet Dips and Spreads are hitting the shelves in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Southeast.   Checkout our Green Mountain Farms recipe page for a few delicious ideas.
