The Story of Nutpods
nutpods was born out of my personal search for a dairy-free creamer with a rich taste and consistency but without unnecessary additives.
From an idea in a California diner to a leader in plant-based creamers, the nutpods story shows the power of a great product and a passionate fan base.
Where It All Began
On vacation, pregnant and frustrated with her non-dairy creamer options at a Lake Tahoe diner, Madeline decides she wants to develop a better alternative creamer option for herself and the world.
To The Kitchen
Madeline spent over a year in the kitchen recipe testing and developed the flagship almond + coconut blend creamer.
The Kickstarter Campaign
To get proof of concept Madeline took to Kickstater and raised $32,000 to start the brand. Sidenote: she was still pregnant at the time and went into labor at the $18,000 mark!
