Thank you! Your vote helped validate that Paleo Treats is at the top when it comes to real food, real Paleo desserts available in the marketplace. Wait, what happened?
Skip here to find out!
We are so grateful for your support. Without you raising up your hand for us we not only wouldn't win, we wouldn't be in existence.
Lee says it all the time as a reminder, "Be good enough to be discovered."
You are helping to prove that the best way to do real food is by a direct transaction between the maker and the eater, without any middlemen, extra transit time, or a huge marketing budget to try and "Paleo-wash" food.
Paleo Treats Wins the 2016 Best of Paleo in Desserts Category!
First off, who runs the "Best of Paleo" contest? Paleo Magazine, which has been serving the Paleo community and can be found all over the world.
What's so exciting about this? Paleo Magazine, and "paleo" in general, refers to a massive and rapidly growing movement towards real, fresh food. No, you don't have to look like a caveman (we talk about what Paleo is here). Yes, eating healthier food will make you feel better. Sheesh.
Paleo Magazine is constantly putting more Paleo info into the world, and they take "curating the Paleo experience" pretty darn seriously. You've probably seen them in the checkout aisle at Whole Foods, or if you're into Paleo on the internet you've found 'em popping up everywhere (not in a bad way.)
So, what does it take to win "Best Of Paleo" from the biggest magazine devoted to the lifestyle? The obvious answer is, "More votes than anyone else."
The not-so-obvious answer is all the work that went into it. It's a lot like looking at an iceberg. What you see above water (winning) is about 10% of the effort that went into just getting there.
From the start (back in 2009), we've been driven to total excellence. Paleo Treats is a niche product; not everyone wants or needs a high end dessert that doesn't have gluten, grain or dairy. Niches like ours tend to be left alone for the most part, but recently we've seen an influx of big players onto the field.
As the food industry on the whole sees the importance of "healthy desserts", we're starting to see a huge flood of interest (read money and effort) entering the market.
That's one reason why we're so proud to keep winning this award (yep, it's the second time we've won it.) Despite the massive money being thrown around in dessert-land, we're seeing the enactment of the theme "the best rises to the top".
It's exciting to see that theme play out over and over again, and it's super exciting to be the one on top. While we're not big searchers for external praise, it sure does feel nice when it happens.
Thank you again, we are stoked and honored to be your top choice when it comes time for dessert.
Enjoy your Treats!
Nik, Lee, and the whole PT crew.
