A Customer for Life

In a recent post I announced how excited I was that my German Chocolate brownie recipe was chosen as a runner-up in the Pamela's recipe contest. I was told I was going to receive a prize, but I didn't know what that entailed -- and boy was I surprised with what I received.

That photo above? I didn't go on a Pamela's shopping spree, that's my prize! It was such a wonderful feeling to get home from work, feeling kind of blah and seeing a giant, heavy box in front of my door. I couldn't think of anything that large and heavy that I was expecting in the mail, so it took me awhile to make the connection of why I was receiving all of these cool things! Included in the package were lots of cookies: the bite-size ginger snaps and chocolate chips cookies, the normal sized peanut-butter, chocolate chunk, ginger and chocolate chip. I also received Pamela's baking mix, bread mix (which i covet), chocolate and yellow cake mix, and frosting mix. ALSO in the package was myriad kitchen tools: pizza cutter, spatula, whisk, frosting knife and a sturdy notepad with pen. AND a hat, t-shirt, oven-mitt and shopping bag.

I felt like it was Christmas again!

When a company understands the importance of appreciating and taking care of their customers, not to mention Pamela's was the very first gluten-free item I ate when I was diagnosed (and it made me so hopeful that I could happily live with this diet!) I am sold. They've got a customer for life.

And Henry really likes the ginger-snaps.
