  • How To Videos and/or Endorsements
 

[brand:name]’s Brand Ambassador program partners with influencers on a case-by-case basis in the following ways:

  1. Recipe Developers create original recipes on behalf of [brand:name], photograph them, assign the recipe ownership rights to the brand, and then promote those recipes through their social media channels and blog. So their role is multi-faceted. They are recipe developers, advocates of the brand, referral sources, and traffic drivers back to our website. This is a paid partnership. As such, when we partner with recipe developers we look for the following:
    • Strong baking skills and baking knowledge. While formal training is not a requirement, all potential brand ambassadors are reviewed by our corporate chef.
    • Professional quality photography skills.
    • An active and engaged following on social media.
    • A style, tone, voice, and audience aligned with our target audience.
    • An audience that primarily resides in our target markets (TX, LA, AR, MS, AL, FL, NC, SC, GA, VA, TN, KY)
    • A balance between sponsored and organic posts. We only partner with true fans of the brand so when you tell your followers that you love our product, that endorsement is authentic.
    • A per-recipe fee that aligns with your skills and audience size.
    • Creativity and professionalism.
    • Brand exclusivity.
  2. Recipe Testers work with [brand:name] to test audience-submitted recipes, as well as modernizing recipes from our vintage cookbooks. When we partner with recipe testers we look for the following:
    • Strong baking skills and baking knowledge. While formal training is not a requirement, all potential recipe testers are reviewed by our corporate chef.
    • Professional quality photography skills.
    • A per-recipe fee that aligns with your skills.
    • No posts promoting any competing brands within the last 6 months.
  3. Brand Ambassadors consists of up-and-coming influencers who are strong advocates of the brand. Opportunities could include sponsored ingredient listings, promoted products, co-branded recipes, giveaways, and/or brand testimonials.
    • Strong baking skills and baking knowledge. While formal training is not a requirement, all potential brand ambassadors are reviewed by our corporate chef.
    • A sponsorship fee that aligns with your skills and abilities.
    • Brand exclusivity.
  4. If you are interested in working together, we want to hear from you!

Gift food packaging ideas

Chalkboard Gift Box

Chalkboard Gift Box

Start with an inexpensive and appropriately sized paper or cardboard craft box. Take a can of chalkboard spray paint and completely cover all sides. Apply in light, sweeping coats. Let dry for 24 hours. Next, take either chalk orchalk markers and write your holiday message. The best part is that because it is chalk, you can erase and start again if you change your mind on the design. Line the box with wax paper and place your homemade treats inside.

Window Gift Bags

Window Gift Bags

Give your friends and family a sneak peek at the goodies inside their gift bag with a cellophane holiday shaped window. Start with plain gift bags. Punch out the center of your bag with a large holiday-themed punch or trace a stencil or cookie cutter and then cut it out. With a clear tape runner or double sided clear tape, tape around the cut out image on the inside of the bag. Cut out a piece of cellophane large enough to cover the image and carefully slip it inside the bag and place it over the tape and cut out image. Press down to adhere. Fill the bag with homemade cookies or other treats and then fold over the top of the bag a couple times, then punch two holes with a hole punch and tie together with ribbon.

Chinese Take Out Box

Chinese Take Out Box

Most craft stores carry these cute Chinese food take out box shaped containers. Just fill with colorful tissue paper or colored foil and place your home baked treats on top.

Clear Canisters

Clear Canisters

Inexpensive clear canisters can be found at your local craft store, dollar store or even resale shop. Look for jars with wide mouth openings so that you can easily reach in and out. Cut colored wax paper or tissue paper into squares approximately the same size as your cookie and then alternate cookie and paper. Dress the jar with a bow, raffia or ribbon.

Colorful Gift Boxes

Colorful Gift Boxes

This isn’t grandma’s old tin – it’s a modern way to give food. Craft stores have lots of options when it comes to pretty paper and cardboard gift boxes; some with a clear top so you can see through. Just line it with wax paper and place your treats inside for a beautiful gift.

Custom Cookie & Candy Tins

Create a keepsake along with a memory when you customize a plain cookie tin with a child's artwork. Visit our Custom Cookie Tin page for instructions on how to create your own work of art.

Printable Gift Tags

Other Ideas for Creative Food Gift Packaging

  • Place your treats inside a tall mason jar and screw on lid. Wrap the entire jar in a brightly colored dish towel. Gather the edges at the top of the jar and tie together with a coordinating color ribbon. Your gift recipient gets a new kitchen towel along with a sweet treat.
  • Instead of a bow, use a kitchen utensil on top of the package.

Sugar Myths

Sugar Myths

Hyperactivity
How often have you blamed a child’s misbehavior on sugar? It’s a common practice. But sugar plays little to no part in a child’s behavior. Several medical studies have found no significant link between sugar intake and hyperactivity.

WebMD: Busting the Sugar-Hyperactivity Myth
 

Obesity
With only 15 calories per teaspoon, sugar is no more fattening than any other 15 calories. You gain weight by taking in more calories than your body burns for fuel. Carbohydrates (like sugar) and protein supply 4 calories per gram, whereas fats deliver more than twice that—9 calories per gram. Also, carbs and protein are converted immediately into the fuels a body needs, while fats are initially stored in fat cells for later use. Effective weight management depends on the combination of responsible eating and appropriate physical activity.

Source: Sugar Association

Diabetes
Sugar by itself does not cause diabetes. Both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes evolve from a disruption of the body’s ability to convert blood glucose (commonly referred to as blood sugar) into energy. Starches and sugars – whether originating from foods like potatoes, carrots, corn, strawberries and watermelon, or from the sugar bowl, are first metabolized to glucose to meet basic energy needs.

Type 1 diabetes is caused by genetics and unknown factors that trigger the onset of the disease; type 2 diabetes is caused by genetics and lifestyle factors. Being overweight does increase your risk for developing type 2 diabetes, and a diet high in calories from any source contributes to weight gain.

Source: American Diabetes Association

Cavities
Bacteria in the mouth break down all carbohydrates – both starches and sugars. This normal process forms acids that can leach minerals from tooth enamel. Sticky snacks like raisins and other dried fruits, and starchy foods like bread sticks, cereals and potato chips, linger on teeth and prolong acid production even more than most candies. Infants and toddlers napping with a bottle of juice are also at increased risk of cavities.

Dentists advise reducing between-meal snacks and limiting sweet or sticky foods to mealtimes. Regular brushing and flossing, using fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash, and regular dentist visits are the smart foundations for controlling cavities.

Cavities are lessened by a combination of responsible dental care, smart snacking choices – whether sugar, starches, juices, or anything else, and the time of day snacks are eaten.

Refining
"Refined” is a misunderstood word, especially when it comes to sugar. Somehow, over the years, refined has taken on the meaning of being overly processed and manipulated. In truth, the definition of refined is “to make pure.” The refining process simply separates natural sucrose from sugar cane without bleaching or chemical manipulation. See our How Sugar is Processed infographic for a visual explanation. The Sugar Association also provides infographics on the manufacturing process

Cancer
It’s true that sugar feeds every cell in our body — even cancer cells. But, research shows that eating sugar doesn’t necessarily lead to cancer. It’s what sugar does to your waistline that can lead to cancer. Taking in too many sugar calories may result in weight gain. And, being overweight or obese puts you at a higher risk for cancer and other diseases.

Cane Sugar vs. Beet Sugar

Cane Sugar vs. Beet Sugar

Sugar (sucrose) is a naturally occurring carbohydrate found in every fruit and vegetable. Most of the sugar in the world comes from two sources: Sugar cane and beets, as it is easily extracted from both and both contain large quantities of sucrose.  99.95% sucrose in fact.

The .05% difference is due in part to the fact that sugar cane and beets are different plants with different chemical makeups grown in different environments.

Sugar cane is a tropical grass that grows abundantly in warm, moist and tropical climates and can reach 10-20 feet in height. Four U.S. states produce sugar cane: Florida, Hawaii, Louisiana and Texas. Sugar beets are grown as an underground root crop in temperate climates.

Sugar cane is harvested by chopping off the stems or canes while leaving the roots so that the plant can grow again, making it a highly stainable crop. Sugar beets are planted every year.

Pure cane sugar is non-GMO. Imperial Sugar does not use genetically modified plants in any of our pure cane sugar products. Beet sugar can be derived from genetically modified plants. The U.S. does not require labels to designate whether the sugar is derived from sugar cane or beets. If you are concerned about avoiding beet sugar, be sure to look for "Pure Cane Sugar" on the package.

Dark Brown vs. Light Brown Sugar

Dark Brown Versus Light Brown Sugar

Brown sugar is simply granulated "white" sugar that has been combined with pure cane molasses. Molasses is a natural by-product of the sugar-making process. The difference between light and dark brown sugar is simply the amount of molasses added.

When a recipe calls for "brown sugar," it is usually referring to light brown sugar. Dark brown sugar should be used only when specified. This is important when baking recipes sensitive to moisture and density (such as cakes) because of the difference in moisture content between the two types of brown sugar. In other applications, substituting dark brown sugar over light brown will yield a deeper flavor with more caramel, much like adding molasses would do.
