Mood Boosting Sampling
Happy shoppers are the best customers, and if not all of your customers walk through your door in a good mood, why not help them get there. A study presented at the National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society analyzed natural compounds in foods that are suggested to have mood-enhancing effects. Sampling specific foods in store for their mood enhancing effects can have a ripple effect. More of the foods sampled are purchased, and shoppers just might buy more overall – and not to mention they will associate visiting your store as a fun and positive experience.
Healthy Holiday Spices
So many Americans - adults and children - are dealing with food allergies and intolerances these days. This can put a damper on holiday treats, but not with great allergen-free recipes like this one! Taken from the Allergy-Free Cookbook by Eileen Rhude Yoder, PH.D., this Fruity Spice Cake recipe will come in handy during the holidays. Share with your shoppers!
