Ohio Loves Chocolate! Country Living Fair is Sweet!

Wooh Hooh! What a great weekend for Sundaes Best in Ohio!! I knew that Columbus loved their football, their Buckeyes, and now they love their chocolate too! Sundaes Best was very well received at the Country Living Magazine's Country Living Fair at Ohio Village in Columbus, Ohio this past weekend. Over 20,000 people attended this fantastic three-day event.
I packed up a load of hot fudge sauce, my dear friend Beth Cunningham, and headed west for our 600+ mile toot to see what the Country Living Fair was all about. My friend, Jenny Wren she said it would be a great place to promote Sundaes Best Hot Fudge Sauce and boy was she right!

How can you have so much fun at work? I am one of the luckiest people on the planet! I sold lots of hot fudge sauce, met lots of great artists and purveyors, laughed non-stop! We enjoyed great food, and very comfortable lodging... what more could a girl ask for?? The setting at Ohio Village was picturesque, the mature shade trees, the gravel roadways and the wooden side walks lined with lush flowers, turn of the century buildings plus perfect weather made this three-day outdoor event one for the record books!

Customers and vendors alike came from all over the fifty nifty states. Our neighbors, and new wholesale account, the Woolly Bugger Coffee Roasters trekked from Michigan and Beth and I met some antiques dealers from St. Louis and even Texas! We even were surprised to see our current customers at the show..Karla from Karla's Kitchen Klutter. The energy at the show was palpable....creative energy, buying power energy, and excited energy about all the goodies to see and to taste!

Our booth (pictured) was a hub of activity! We sampled our Original hot fudge sauce along with Peanut Butter, Java, Mint and Raspberry. We SOLD OUT out of Java and Peanut Butter and our load was much lighter heading home. (But we found great stuff to fill the space!) To top it all off, Ohio State won on Saturday.....I wonder if all those football boys like Hot Fudge Sauce?? HHMMMMMMMH....

A great big sweet thank-you to: Beth, Jennifer, Michele, Ian, Mimi and of course Jeff. And to all of our new customers in Ohio! I appreciate your support and belief in Sundaes Best Hot Fudge Sauce and look forward to many more sweet trips!

Oh yeah.....GoBuckeyes! Have a sweet season!
