Look for Original Gourmet Lollipops at Hy-Vee locations throughout the Midwest. Plus, a chance encounter with a lollipop-loving Olympian!
Original Gourmet Lollipops were a hit at the Hy-Vee Show in Des Moines, IA. A few phrases we repeatedly overheard throughout the day:
- “These are the best lollipops!”
- “I love these things!”
- “There isn’t another product that’s even close in comparison.”
Responses like these are a constant reminder that we have an awesome product at Original Gourmet. I even received a brand new Metrokane Rabbit wine aerator in exchange for a cotton candy lollipop – my blockbuster trade of the day!
After a quick ride to Kansas City for an appointment, we were homeward bound. I had the pleasure of sitting next to Canadian Olympic softball pitcher Danielle Lawrie. She’s a fan of Original Gourmet Lollipops and said she loves them when she’s traveling. Danielle leaves this week to join her team in Japan for the next 9 months, so I had to hook her up with a stash of her favorite flavors for the trip (Cotton Candy & Blue Raspberry). The only downside — she was so humble and awesome that I can’t heckle her brother at the next Blue Jays/Red Sox game I attend. Keep it poppin’ in Japan Danielle!
