When I started the company back in 2018, it was founded solely off of my Grandma, Cuddy's, Original recipe. I felt that if people enjoyed her delicious treats as much as I always have then this would be a slam dunk! Well - starting a business is as hard, if not harder than what anyone ever could have explained to me. It comes with problems of all sizes and ranges from customers to suppliers and machinery to finding help. But nothing could have prepared me for what came at the end of 2020. After a phenomenal Christmas Eve and Christmas Day; we lost Cuddy, suddenly and unexpectedly on December 27th. She was not ill or battling any health issues so this came as a major shock to our family.
How could this happen? I had just come off such a strong year of growth in pushing her recipe to people across the country. She was supposed to be around to see the distance her treats could reach. My wife and I had just revealed the news that we were expecting our first child in July. You should have seen her reaction! This utterly hard to grasp reality just felt like such a blow to everything we had done thus far.
It took someone else bringing this to my attention just shortly after her passing, but what we are doing is special. Of course, I already knew that what we craft is different, tasty and provides a nostalgia behind the family recipe, but it is not just about that, it is about everything that has yet to come. The truth is - our brand is still in its infancy. But it is the legacy of carrying on my Grandma's name and talents through these delicious treats that truly makes us special. Making people happy and providing them an insight into who she was as a person and the bubbly, charismatic and caring spirit she possessed is the most special aspect of our Brand. You can find that in our treats because we still show the same tender love and care she put into them when she would make them during the holidays for loved ones.
So, from the bottom of our hearts, our Chunk Nibbles family wants to thank you for all of your support over the years. We are looking forward to another great year and we are doing it with our angel, Cuddy, watching over us. With the same giggle, smile, and love she showed in her final days.
