Buddy Fruits Review, and Giveaway US Only Ends 6/21

A family project, a common dream... We love life , we love fruits and we love the USA!!! 
Let me tell you the true story of my little french family.

During the summer of 2006, my wife and I rented a big camper to travel along the mythical Route 66 with our little child "Timéo". This was the accomplishment of a dream we always had and the journey proved to be fabulous and rich of new experiences. It was also the occasion for us to meet great people, discovers habits and traditions and spot all those little differences that make the American culture so unique.

And obviously, being a full time Chef and restaurant owner in France, I was also particularly curious and interested by the food and eating habits people have in the USA. Among the differences I observed I was quite surprised by the difficulty to find fruits and fruit pouches...

You have to know that in France, beside the cooking tradition and the wide variety of meals we prepare, we are used to eating loads of fruits and vegetables. Our kids do too. One of the best ways to eat fruits, especially when you are travelling, is through fruit pouches, a best-selling concept in France with a high demand from kids and parents.

Well, during this trip, despite looking actively for such pouches for "Timéo" (he's such a big fan!), we reached the conclusion that they didn't exist in America... And for this reason, we started thinking of the idea of bringing this fabulous concept into the USA.

We returned to France and decided to plan another trip to the USA with samples of pouches in our bags, and with the goal of introducing this concept to our American friends. The trip finally took place during the summer of 2007. We organized an informal garden party with friends we have in Miami, friends of our friends, family, relatives. The objective was to get their feed-back on our revolutionary idea. We wanted to know whether this idea was worth leaving France, our jobs and comfort to start a new adventure in America. Was it worth leaving it all behind to launch and promote this new way of eating fruits?.

At the end of the garden party, the general feeling was very positive and everyone seemed convinced by the 'squeezable fruit pouch' concept. All of the testers backed-up the idea and it was a collective "YES". One of them even said : "Ouh...làlà! c'est bon!!!" … quote we loved and decided to keep to name our company: "Ouh...làlà! c'est bon!!! LLC".

And then, everything went quite quickly : I gave up my restaurant and my wife quit her job as a banker. We packed-up our things, jumped in an airplane and here we are !

Yes, here we are because we believe that healthy food is essential for a good and balanced life. We have found the best fruit producers and mixed traditional and innovative recipes, to create our pure blended fruit pouches based on my experience as a chef. You can be sure that our wholesome pouches will always deliver 100% natural and delicious fruits. It's our promise. It's our commitment.
