I got this email yesterday:
Way back in the day, I was a recipient of your free sample. BEST FREE SAMPLE EVER! It was big, it was more delicious than anyone could ever anticipate. So, this year I went to Africa to study and they suggest you pack snacks, so for christmas I received four large bags of your delicious treat. I left on my trip the 8th of January and 1.5 bags had already been consumed… you do the math ! Anyway, I tied a knot in that leftover half bag and left it in my apartment, figuring someone would find it and eat it, as I packed the other 2 for my long excursion.
When I got back mid-May, I found that half bag still sitting on my shelf, and that Velma’s craving took me. I opened the 5 month old bag of Velma’s and upon consumption discovered… it was not stale. Holy wow. I fricking love you people and your nomcious nomming popcorn. Thank you for the best welcome home ever.
ACK! You ate a 5 month old bag?! I should notify my health department and point that out to them. (This stuff won’t kill you no matter what spots I miss cleaning up.) Most health department treat me like I’m selling Sushi from my tent.
I think my partner Steve found a 1 month old bag in his car and choked that down. But FIVE months? Wow.
Maybe I should advertise that my product has a longer shelf life than Twinkies. At least we’ll be eating kettle corn after “the big one” drops.
Thanks for the feedback!
