Meet Our Vendors! is an ongoing series where you’ll be able to get a sneak peek of who you’ll see in November! Feel free to leave comments and questions–for us and for the vendor–about products, practices, and anything else that’s on your mind.
Enjoy Life Foods products are certified gluten-free and Free-From the top 8 food allergens (NO: wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish and shellfish) making them safe for over 100 million individuals who live with food intolerances. What’s more is that they are readily stocked at Walt Disney World giving you plenty of safe choices at all of the parks and resorts.
In true Meet Our Vendors fashion, we chatted with the team at Enjoy Life Foods, and they answered some fun questions for all of us to get to know the details behind the popular allergy-free brand. Here’s what they said:
1. If Enjoy Life was a Disney Park, which one would it they be?
The Magic Kingdom! Since our products are free-from the top 8 most common food allergens (wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish and shellfish), they are safe for many people who have Celiac Disease or food allergies and intolerances. When we see our consumers at different events across the company, we sometimes hear, ‘How do you make these cookies so good?’ Our response: a lot of love, trust and a little bit of magic. Seems appropriate!
2. What’s the craziest/funniest/most memorable time you’ve experienced with an Enjoy Life fan?
Our Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Joel Warady, is quite a force on social media – specifically Twitter. He provides great, interesting content not only about the food & grocery industry, but also about marketing and technology happenings as well. He therefore has quite the following! The sales and marketing team always enjoy seeing Joel treated like a celebrity at the many events we attend. We joke that he is the rockstar of the food allergy awareness world! Follow him @enjoylifecmo!
3. You’re off to the airport for the Food Allergy & Celiac Convention. What Enjoy Life Foods items are in your bag?
Our Grab & Go items, of course! A Crunchy Cookie for a sweet treat, Plentils for a salty snack and Seed & Fruit Mixes when we need some healthy energy! Since our products are peanut and tree nut free and produced in a dedicated nut-free facility, we feel good about bringing them onboard … and sharing :)
A Haiku? That’s tricky! Picking our favorite Enjoy Life product? Now that is practically impossible! We will play along though. Here is a rhyme about one of our long-time faves…
Craving a little sugar and spice?
Our Soft Baked Snickerdoodle Cookies are oh so nice!
When we made this cookie we immediately knew,
It’s hard to limit yourself to just a few!
5. What is the inspiration behind creating new products?
Our consumers provide great inspiration for new products! We are always listening to their feedback on social media and at events, tweaking existing products to make them better or adding new product ideas to our potential product development list. We also watch for industry trends on better-for-you ingredients so we are always providing great-tasting, safe foods.
6. We know it must be brewing in there… will there ever be a white chocolate Choco Boom?
This is our most common new product request! We will never say never, but at the moment, we don’t have a white chocolate in the works. We have yet to find a good recipe that meets are taste & quality standards that we can produce at a reasonable price point for our consumers. We promise it is on our new product development list so, stay tuned…
