I can not believe just 1 year ago a business was born. Sandy, my best friend and I, 👭 racking our crafty creative brains, came up with a chocolate covered Oreo idea.
🍪🍫It was right around dance recital👯 and end of year party time, so it was perfect time to start. We started off by making an Instagram account @sugarrushnyc and a Sugarrush Nyc facebookpage and hit the ground running! Emojis were super popular and we just knew the kids would love it, and they did! 😍😛🙄😞😅😬
The chocolate covered Oreos were delicious and I’ll never forget Sandy packing me my own box 2 weeks into the business for my trip to Disney. I hid them in my carry on and I saved one for each morning for breakfast. 💁🏽🍪When I say “hid them” I mean I hid them from my kids. As in a 36 year old woman who wouldn’t share with her own children, for the sole purpose of gluttony. I had just enough to last me a week, till I got home and she could make me more! From then on I was hooked!!!
Then we moved on to adding chocolate covered rice crispy treats, ridiculously addicting, to chocolate lollipops, 🍫🍭and chocolate marshmallows, brownies and cupcakes and doughnuts, chocolate covered pretzels, other flavored cookies, then to the very creative candy sushi on Oreos! 🍱🍪. We’ve experimented with all kind of sprinkles and nonpareils!!!!
It started off as hand dipped and then perfecting along the way now is mostly dipped in molds. Whatever the customer prefers! Then around the holidays 🎅🏼 we decided it was time for Sandy to purchase an edible printer 🖨and take it to the next level! Since then she has not looked back and business FREAKEN EXPLODED. 💥💥💥At this point if you can “think it she can make it!” Skies the limits! Everything is now customizable with the edible image!!! In 1 year Sandy has LITERALLY. DONE. IT. ALL!!! Party favors🎁🎈, baby showers, 👶🏻gender reveals, 👧🏻👦🏻pregnancy announcements, 👶🏽weddings👰🏽, engagement parties and actual engagements💍, bar mitzvahs🔯 and birthday parties🎈🎉, holidays🕎, thank yous👏🏽🙌🏽, congratulations🎊, colleges, college acceptances, college graduation 🎓, sororities and fraternities, CAMP CAMP CAMP⛺️, teacher appreciation, religious💒🕍, communions, bris, baby namings, baptisms⛪️, business logos and now TV APPEARANCES 📺!!!
The list can go on and on but I think the above says enough. I am soooooo soooo proud of Sandy 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽and what she has done in just 1 year. 1️⃣This is the kind of woman who sets her mind when she has a goal and she keeps her eye on the prize. She takes pride in her work, she works endlessly and tirelessly until her bones ache😰, all to make sure a customer is satisfied. This says a lot about her character, and I like supporting small businesses who have kind and wonderful people running them! Her dedication and commitment is evident in her perfect masterpieces. 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽She’s anal and a control freak, and you want this when someone is customizing something you are eating so that it’s safe, it tastes delicious and it looks PHENOMENAL!👏🏽 So on the 1 year anniversary of SugarRushNYC 🎊🎈1️⃣, Sandy I just want you to know how proud I am of you. ❤️And I will never let you give up, you will be an old lady 👵🏼 with a hunched back dipping Oreos, OR WHATEVERS YOUR NEWEST UNIQUE CREATION! 🆕🆕🆕🆕Keep your eyes open because you never know what new goodies we have up our sleeve!!! I have an easy part, brainstorm new ideas when I can, but Sandy does allllll the work, allllll the prep, alllll the labor and tedious work of wrapping, printing the edible paper, dipping Oreos, making the Oreos in molds, fixing jammed printers, dealing with last minute orders, packaging, tying ribbons etc, and she does it with a smile on her face! You amaze me! 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽
So it’s that time of year, get your end of year gifts for recitals, teacher thank yous, end of year sports, sleepaway camp and visiting day, Father’s Day, Memorial Day and 4th of July orders in now!!! You will NOT be sorry AND it’s one less thing on your to-do list TO DO!!! 👍🏽👍🏽👌🏽👌🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽📝📝📝✔️✔️✔️🍪🍫
