Dear XXX & ZZZ,

My apologies for addressing the two of you together, but as of late we have been receiving an overwhelming demand for chicken related ingredients in our cereal and, in an effort to reduce our digital footprint, have implemented an email grouping policy. While most of the chicken suggestions have been of the generic grilled and fried variety, the buffalo route certainly caught my eye and warranted further investigation.

All of our ingredients adhere to a rigorous testing procedure by our cereal mixologists before making the cut. Because chicken is a perishable good, it was of utmost importance to go directly to the source to find the freshest ingredients. So with bowls filled with our finest artisanal mix, I headed to the local KFC, ordered 5 buffalo buckets and beckoned others to join me in what was sure to be a glorious feast and a revolutionary moment in cereal history.

After 15 nauseous looks, 12 vulgar comments, 7 customer complaints and 2 popcorn chicken pieces to the face, I was asked to vacate the premises. It turns out America just isn’t ready for your revolutionary combination of chicken and cereal. I want you to know that the fight does not end here. There is still Chick-fil-A and several other high end buffalo chicken providers. As we are all about customizing to each individual’s needs, I will be sure to keep you updated in our search to make your dream our reality.

Thank you for your interest in [me] & goji. As a small company we are heavily reliant on customer feedback like yours to continuously improve. I’d like to extend a 10% off coupon for your next [me] & goji purchase, just enter DIRTYBIRD upon checkout. Feel free to reach out to me at this address with any feedback/questions.

sinCerealy yours,

alexander

What do celebrities, sitcoms and cereal have in common? All three were amply represented at The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards this week in LA. [me] & goji was invited to the notorious Nathalie Dubois DPA Golden Globe gifting suite as a featured product where 300 of the industry’s biggest names crunched and munched on custom creations.

this year, everyone took something home for their mantel

The DPA gifting lounge offered celebrities, nominees, and presenters the newest and hottest products from Marchon couture gowns to [me] & goji couture cereal.

For the event, we designed five custom mixes highlighting “Trailblazing Moments” in film and television. Red carpet recipes included: The Gojifather (honoring The Godfather), Boys Don’t Rye (honoring Hillary Swank’s role in Boys Don’t Cry), Guess Who’s Coming to Breakfast? (honoring Sidney Poitier), and Berry Funny (honoring cereal connoisseur, Seinfeld).

Which is your favorite?
