Seattle's Best Coffee has introduced Frozen Coffee Blends for retail sale, in Coffee Chiller, Creamy Caramel, Very Vanilla and Mega Mocha flavors. “To make an amazing cold coffee drink you have to strike the perfect balance between rich coffee flavor and chocolate or other sweet flavors,” said Sue McCown, research and development manager for Seattle’s Best. “We teamed with Inventure foods to develop a well-balanced frozen coffee blend that is simple and fun to make at home."
Twinkies will return to store shelves July 15, says Hostess Brands, which has been streamlined after undergoing bankruptcy reorganization. The box proclaims the snack is making "The Sweetest Comeback in the History of Ever."
For businesses looking to grow past a plateau, Seth Godin suggests a buffet analogy. If your buffet already appeals to 85% of the people out there, the only way to grow is to go wider or deeper with your offerings. Going wider means offering a few selections that appeal to nontraditional buffet types: vegans, Jews who keep kosher, etc. Going deeper means offering an "insanely over the top" selection of one food group -- such as chocolate -- that will attract devotees from near and far.
