Thanks so much to Tina for shooting them and for allowing us to use them on our website.

Join us in support of Komen Foundation

As you may already know, finding a cure for breast cancer is a cause that’s near and dear to our hearts at Reginald’s. Tomorrow, May 11 is the 2012 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Richmond. And while we can’t be there to participate, we will be selling our special pink label creamy peanut butter at South of the James Market.

These jars sell for $10 each with $5 from each sale donated back to the Komen Foundation.

And while supplies last, we’ll also be selling our pink Komen Partnership Visors at South of the James for $20 with $10 from each sale going to the Komen Foundation.

South of the James Market runs from 8:00 AM to 12:00 noon tomorrow, May 11. If you’re able, please visit our booth and help us raise money in support of Komen Foundation’s effort to help those affected by breast cancer.

Thanks, and we hope to see you tomorrow.

Cleaning out the notebook

Sorry guys, been a while since I posted.  You know how it is in the peanut butter(and currently cashew) world.  Just wanted to update everyone on what’s been going on.

We have a few new retail locations to add to the Reginald’s world.

1.  Libbie Market:  A staple in Richmond, Va.  Former Joe’s Market they continue to carry on great service and wonderful products.  They are the first location to carry all Original 8 flavors.

2. Cooper Vineyards:  A great Vineyard and Winery located in Louisa, Va.  It’s located between Richmond and C-Ville.  The have an awesome selections of wines and carry some of Reginald’s more decadent flavors.

3.  Omni Resort Bedford Springs:  Stop on the way to Pittsburgh.  Check it out. Great spot, great golf, very relaxing and Reginald’s rocking in the Gourmet Shop.

4.  Mrs. Bryants:  Taking a trip to Williamsburg.  Stop in to Mrs. Bryants Specialty and pick up a few jars.  They do a great job of promoting local Virginia goods.

 

Also just in the last few days Reginald’s joined forces with Relay Foods.  They have asked us to part of their Richmond and Charlottesville locations.  Very exciting stuff.  They are a great company that strives to promote local products.  Please click on their website and find out all about them.  It’s truly the wave of the future and Reginald’s is thrilled to be a part.

Besides all that great news our 2 new flavors Bourbon Pecan Peanut Butter and Cinnamon Molasses Cashew Butter both made their maiden voyage a few Sundays ago at the Virginia Food and Wine Festival.  Both flavors were a smashing success as was the festival.  We met a ton of new people and picked up a bunch of new fans.  Thanks to everyone who came out!!  Back to the new flavors.  Both are now available to order on the website and will be available at every event we do.

Finally we have been working very hard to make our shipping rates more affordable.  The end is in sight.  We have found a solution and shortly it will be implemented on the website.  As soon as we do you all will be the first to know.  Look forward to getting Reginald’s to every state in the country then beyond.  Again thanks to everyone for the amazing support, the best is yet to come.

The Virginia Food & Wine Festival Is This Weekend!

Virginia Food and Wine FestivalThis Sunday, July 24, Save Our Food is presenting the Virginia Food & Wine Festival at the Farm Bureau Center at The Meadow Event Park in Doswell, VA. The event runs from noon to 5:00pm and entry is only $10 per car and 1/2 price for Virginia Farm Bureau members.

$10 too much? Our understanding is that if you click here to download and print this flyer, you will get you $5 off your admission price if you bring it with you!

Last year, over 5,000 attended the Virginia Food & Wine Festival, and we’re sure this year will be even better. With hundreds of local foods and wines to sample, some of the area’s hottest barbecue teams competing for top prizes, live music and lots and lots of kids’ activities, how could it not be!

And the festival will be held indoors, where it’s nice and cool!

So beat the heat this Sunday and join us at the Virginia Food & Wine Festival. Reginald’s will have Booth #3, just around the corner from the BBQ area. (Perfect!)

Farmers Markets Galore!

Last weekend was our first time out at the St. Stephen’s Farmers Market, and it was a huge success. We actually sold out of all of our product well before the end of the day—guess we need to stock up for the rest of the season!

One of the highlights of last weekend was getting to meet a local foodie blogger who was nice enough to talk about our peanut butter on her blog. Spoiler alert: She really liked our stuff. Check it out! http://www.eatingbirdfood.com/2011/05/the-best-thing-since-pb/

In addition to St. Stephen’s, last night we had a lot of fun at the Whole Foods Market Farmers Market. For those of you who don’t know about that one, we’ll be out there every other Thursday evening from 4-7pm. Stop on by and say hello if you’re out in the west end.

Hopefully we won’t get rained out at tomorrow’s market, but if we do I’ll just have more time to crank out the peanut butter for next week.

See you all soon!
