Why, Hello there. It’s been a while.
I heard from some of you that you wanted to see my blogs again. Truthfully, it’s been such a busy launch year for us at nutpods that I thought it was something that wouldn’t be missed but I’m glad some of you missed it.
Because I missed it too; I missed having a personal way to voice who I am in the nutpods brand. There have been so many new customers and new friends that some may not even know who I am, despite my name being on every carton of nutpods.
Hi. My name is Madeline Haydon. I created nutpods because I was just like you. I am dairy-free and was tired of choosing between processed creamers and the thin and watery healthy ones. I missed half and half in my coffee and I wanted something that I could use in baking and cooking as well. Have you ever tried mashed potatoes with almond milk? Coconut milk? I have.
If you want to know more about the brand and the products, please get to know me in my earlier blogs.
In this post, I’d like to spend a few minutes talking about being different. You know when you’re a kid, they tell you to have the courage to be different? Well, it turns out that that lesson still applies even when you’re in your 40s and starting a food business.
There are so many ways that we are different from our competition:
It’s hard to be different. I’m not a seasoned food executive. I was just a consumer, like you, wanting to have a better option and ended up not wanting to wait any longer for the product I wanted to buy. And to have paid consultants who HAVE been in this food and beverage industry tell you you’re going against the grain…well, is scary. I was told that this category is dominated by the big food companies (Nestle, Whitewave size big) and I’d be competing with them as an unknown. I was told that unsweetened wouldn’t sell as a value proposition and that selling online and in a shelf-stable package wouldn’t be wise. And I paid them and listened to them. And I agonized about these decisions. But in the end, I listened to my gut. I wanted to offer something different for consumers like me, and I’m so glad I did. I took the step this past year, with a product that is true to what I wanted to bring to market and you all have responded with a resounding chorus of appreciation of what we’ve created. Thank you!
So while I feel like David vs Goliath, I feel so very blessed to be part of your lives at all. We want YOU to love being dairy-free with us. Thank you for letting us be part of your lives. And if you love us, please share us with your dairy-free or trying-to-be-dairy-free friends.
I love the days after we send our newsletters out because we get a small flood of emails back and it's a great way for us to get to know our fans and know what's on your mind. Typically, we get several emails with similar themes:
Theme 1. We love nutpods! (How lucky are we?? And we love you too.)
Theme 2. When will you ship internationally? (We just launched and need to work on expanding our domestic distribution but we are absolutely looking into the possibility of exporting nutpods. Thank you!)
Theme 3. We.Need.The.Pods. (After Hazelnut, we're hoping to launch the pods next! You would not believe the amount of R&D involved on those little suckers).
Theme 4. When's Hazelnut coming out? That's my flavor-jam. (Be the first to know: We are launching Hazelnut, this month).
In case you're wondering, Yes. I read every one. Thanks for taking the time to write us emails; I love hearing from you all so please keep it up!
