Recently, we decided to print up some quick temporary labels to keep ourselves organized. (If you take an unlabeled bag out of the box and get it mixed up there is no way to tell what flavor it is! So it goes into the box of mystery Skoop for us.) A while back we got into the habit of writing TO: and FROM: on the packages of Skoop we were giving out and when it came time to do the temp labels we decided to keep the tradition going. In fact, we decided to even add it to our permanent package design. It reminds us that our mission is to get Skoop to everybody we know and care about and everybody they know and care about and on and on. That’s a lot of giving out to be done. Chances are, if you get some Skoop you heard about it or got it from somebody who’s taken a keen interest in you and wants you to feel and perform at your absolute best every day. TO: You. FROM: Your Health Fairy.
The different shades of Skoop.
Morning SkoopBerry is a beautiful and vibrant green. Cocoaberry on the other hand takes on a greenish brown that’s probably less appealing to the eye but certainly appeals to the tongues of chocolate lovers. Lately, we’ve noticed that berry has gotten more camera time because of that bright green glow but we love them both and we refuse to play favorites.
To most people this might look like a stack of boxes. But as we gaze on this stack we’re filled with much the same feeling the Greeks must have felt as they first stepped back to admire their giant horse sculpture that they would soon give to the Trojans. It was the secret ingredient to their penetration of the impenetrable Trojan walls. Soon they would leap from inside and begin to slash, cut, burn and kill their way to victory.
This is obviously where the analogy breaks down because our plan is to offer a great tasting and easy product that contains the inherent biological genius of food. These elements will leap from every bag to give people a sometimes first-time sneak peak at how great they can feel and how powerful they can be when their tank is overflowing with nature’s most powerful cocktail of phytonutrients. Whew, that was a mouthful.
So in summary, this is just a pile of boxes in the same way that the Trojan horse was just a horsey sculpture.

Wonder if this is why he jammed every serving of Skoop with ten servings worth of greens, veggies and superfruits? Yeah, probably.
Stir it up.
Let’s face it. If you take Skoop and try to stir it into a beverage with something as pitiful as a common spoon you’re going to be there for a while. So we’ve all become very attached to what we refer to as your shaky cups. There are two popular designs that seem to dominate the selection. The first aids in blending by using a stainless steel whisk like wire ball. The balls does a great job if achieving a very smooth blend very quickly. It makes a bit of a racket as it bounces around in there but it’s a pleasing sound. Clean up is a snap. Just put in some water and shake it up a few times. Then let it air dry. The other popular design as a baffle near the top that swirls the liquid around as it moves through. It’s quieter which for some of us means less fun but it does a good job too. There are more tight corners to get into for clean up but if you clean up right away it shouldn’t be a problem. Our dream is to find or develop a small version of the stainless-whisk ball that could drop into a wide mouth Kleen Kanteen. It’s on our to-do list for sure because we’re not crazy about plastic. In the mean time, you can find them at Whole Foods and GMC in all sorts of sizes and configurations. The small ones are 20 ounce and that’s big enough for a double shot of Skoop. Let us know if you come across something new that you love.

Finger food! These little entrees make us smile. Made us wish for a tiny Skoop to sprinkle on top.

It’s not easy being green.
Kermit said it but it may be getting easier. Seems like people are quickly realizing the mind-blowing benefits of starting your day with a whole lotta green. Skoop’s on the cutting edge of anti-inflammatory eating with what we think is the best tasting most efficacious product around. But we’re still green. We were curious to see how much difference there was between our berry and cocoa-berry flavors so we poured them out side by side. That’s the berry on the left and cocoa-berry on the right. We think they’re both beautiful.
