Creative Musings with Candy

Inaugural blog post = exciting! For me because I will be writing about the exciting world of labels and my favorite thing of all time the foods they go on. And exciting for you because you will get to enjoy my musings and get a glimpse into my hilarity. Of course we here at Creative Labels of Vermont produce labels for all sorts of other things beside food but since it’s my first blog post, I am going to write about something I like the best. FOOD.

Butter. Its one of my favorite food groups, aside from cheese and Diet Coke. Yes, you read that correctly; butter, cheese and Diet Coke have their own food groups (at least in my slightly a skewed world). And recently one of our favorite customers Vermont Creamery, (who produce products that fall into two of my food groups) won a prestigious SOFI award at the Specialty Food Association’s Fancy Food Show in NYC this past June for their Cultured Butter basket. Let me just say that their butter is DELICIOUS. When I had their butter for the first time all I could think of was the Mike Myers Coffee Talk skit from SNL where he and Madonna were talking about Barbara Streisand being like “buttah”, wonderfully, deliciously, creamy and what you’d imagine heaven tasting like. I cannot be prouder of their accomplishment, both as someone who gets to brag EVERYTIME I am in the grocery store that we here at CLOV make their labels but as a born and raised Vermonter. I find it absolutely wonderful when a Vermont company is recognized for what they make, and shows the world that Vermont is more than just delicious maple syrup. Congratulations Vermont Creamery, keep up the excellent work!
