We know what you’re thinking: A year since our last post. You better have a bloody good excuse.
Well as it happens we do. Its been such an eventful year we’ve barely had time to clean our teeth or toast bread, let alone write posts about running a popcorn company! And the way 2013 is shaping up, its going to be another corker.
Now, don’t worry- even though a lot has happened, we’ll keep this to the edited highlights, or we would be here all day (like the Hollyoaks Omnibus, and no-one wants that). And there will be pictures.
In 2012 we finally stopped making popcorn in our flat and found a proper factory, with employees and everything. They helped us develop these beauties.
Not only that, but we managed to sell a load of these beautiful chaps to the lovely people at Waitrose. They look like this.
We also met Heston. He was quiet, and didn’t offer us any fried seagull or snail foam. He tried our popcorn and looked annoyed that it was as good as his. We smiled:
Tom “got a tattoo” to celebrate the deal. His Mum was genuinely really happy about it…
As if that wasn’t enough, we were voted as one of the top 100 businesses of the year by SMARTA. We celebrated with pretend moustaches.
And last but not least, 2012 was the birth-year of Operation Awesome: Our little contribution to making the world that little more awesome. Every time a fan tweets us a photo, we do something awesome for them. We recently stuck loads of free lottery tickets all round London. Look how happy it made this little lady!
That’s about all we can remember. There was definitely a lot more, but we will spare you the detail. Onto the future! Watch this space for exciting news about Love Da Popcorn in the next few weeks.
