Dear Fiscotti Fan,
You're probably asking yourself, "why haven't I heard from Rose yet?" Well, here I am and I have to tell you, this month's message took my awhile to write.
As you already know by now, I celebrated my birthday last month and it kind of knocked me off track. Mainly because the number keeps getting higher and I am reflecting on all the years that have gone by and how many remain. I mean, let's face it, I'm no spring chicken and I know this because my body and mind haven't really been friends since my late 40s. You laugh only because you're under 40, those who are over 40 are feeling the aches with me.
As I look back at my younger days, it's clear that I really didn't set out a path for my career. Unfortunately, life just didn't go that way. Sure, I went to college but I never received a formal degree. Without getting into a whole lot of details, I have had a pretty colorful career background. I got my first job at 16 as a customer service rep at Park N' Fly, then worked on an assembly line for Chrysler for a few years until we got laid off. From there, I ran a family butcher shop that was the best four year stint of my life. After that, I entered the not for profit world and worked for three associations for over 20 years. By the time I hit 50, I decided to run two businesses because I still hadn't figured out what I want to be when I grow up....and here we are!!
This got me thinking, because it's what I do day and night and in my sleep. I've taken quite a few risks for someone who wasn't formally trained...I'd say that's quite feisty, don't you think? Well, I'm sure you know where I'm going with this...yup!! It's the theme to June's Fiscotti cookie.
That's right, this month's themed flavour is an updated version of a flavour I've done before, but this time, I changed it up a bit by not making it chocolate based. Instead, it will be a banana flavoured fiscotti with peanut butter AND chocolate chips and I've called it the Feisty Fiscotti.
Let me know if you'd like to try some as they are only available through the month of June. And thank you for taking the time to read this...feel free to share/forward this message with your friends and family.
Enjoy life to the last bite!
P.S. - Signature flavours are available all year long including the latest Happy Fiscotti!
