Updates and Things to Come

We had a great time at the Arkansas Made-Arkansas Proud festival!

Rob is lucky he still has a voice after all the talking he did about how the syrup is made and how he got the idea to start this business. Visitors to our booth are lucky he’s the one telling the stories, ha, because I usually give a much more abbreviated version of how it’s done (which is why I’m not usually hoarse after an event like that).

Update on Shipping

I found a glitch in our order process that enabled “Local Pick-up” as a shipping option even for orders placed requiring shipping. That has been fixed. Shipping is ridiculously expensive for a bottle of syrup, and I apologize for that, but we just can’t afford to send it without charging for the shipping!

Average shipping cost for one bottle is around $8, depending on where in the country you live. When I buy the postage, I’ll refund the difference in what was paid by the buyer if the cost is lower by more than 0.50.

What’s Coming

Amber Glow

We have a new flavor of syrup. When we went to the kitchen last week to make a new batch, we intended to make the Smokin’ Hot variety. Well, things didn’t turn out as planned and there just wasn’t much heat to the end result. However, it did have a nice glow of heat and the color was a pretty amber, so we decided to call that one “Amber Glow”.

I’ll get it listed to the shop soon.

Smokin’ Hot

Now Rob is getting ready to leave for an overseas job, but I’ll still be cooking syrup while he’s gone. When I get to the kitchen again next month I’ll add enough chilipetin (chili tepin) peppers to the recipe to make the hot variety.

We brought some of our test batch of that with us to the Arkansas Made-Arkansas Proud festival and folks really seemed to like it a lot. Many signed up for the mailing list just so I could let them know when it’s ready.

If you’d like to get on that list, fill out your name and email address in the form below. When it’s ready to ship, I’ll let you know. In the meantime, there is our Regular Smoky and the new Amber Glow flavors to enjoy.
