In one week exactly, we are implementing our hard launch of our brand new Jelly Of The Month Club! This dream becoming reality started merely as a joke during the holiday season last year while watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
Christmas Vacation is a movie starring Chevy Chase that we, as a family, watch every Christmas season; a holiday tradition started over 5 years ago when my husband and I were still dating. In this movie, Clark receives a one year Jelly Of The Month Club subscription as his holiday bonus. One of the best lines of the movie is, “It is the gift that keeps giving all year long!”
Jokingly, my husband stated, “We should totally do this for Lone Star Pure! It would be a hit!” This got the gears in my head turning with an ambition to make his idea come to life. In less than a month, we completed our soft launch for January with promises of a hard launch in February. In January alone, we had 7 subscriptions with dreams of hitting 12 by the end of February!
Our Jelly Of The Month Club offers three different subscription levels, allowing an opportunity for every household to partake in our fun filled monthly box. It allows you, as the customer, to pick two flavors of your choice (candied jalapeños included), while we surprise you with a Club exclusive flavor each month! It also includes over $75 in savings through a coupon book hosted by Lone Star Pure and other small businesses. Lastly, it includes a recipe card, teaching you of ways to use jams and jellies outside of toast and the always classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
January’s surprise flavor was a most decadent chocolate raspberry! Creating this amazing recipe was one that I will ever forget. Learning to perfect something outside of a strictly fruit jam was a task that tried my abilities and made me a better cook overall. I learned the importance of trials and the need for writing down variations to keep your overall favorite in mind.
February’s flavor has been even more challenging! This has been a fun flavor to perfect, as one of the ingredients is one that is temperamental and stubborn. A little goes a long way, and I learned very quickly that you are required to taste everything before calling it immaculate. I look forward to the feedback on this flavor, as it is one that is truly a unique experience for all!
While we understanding these are trying times, we are also humbled by everyone who trusts our product enough to bring it into their home. We would love to be able to supply everyone with this one of a kind experience on a monthly basis. If you are interested in more information, have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us!
Thank you, as always, for your continued support for our small but growing business! We realize we are truly blessed because of your love and support! We hope you all have a blessed week and we look forward to hearing from you!
