Aloha Vera; My name is Lisa Zakar. I am a mother of 3 and the owner for the past 17 years of Lisa Rose, a Princess Tea Party business. It has been the best business idea ever for me as someone who was looking to help my family financially, while staying a full time mom.
With all of my years of experience, I have developed a "Business in a Box" which is a step by step handbook and digital toolbox designed specifically to help other moms and women who love children open a business like mine for moms and women who love children. It is the exact road map I used to create and run my successful Princess Tea Party Business.
I also offer a Children's Etiquette and Social Skills training handbook which can have someone in their own part time business quickly at very low cost. This type of training for young children is in high demand and does not require any formal experience. Just a love for Kids!
Your audience and my product seem like a perfect fit, and I am writing with sincere interest in a product review and other ways we can collaborate, such as guest blogging and interview opportunities.
The Business in a Box and my blog can be accessed at www.princessteapartybusiness.com..
Thank you very much for your consideration and I look forward to your reply. Aloha,Lisa

Hello Vera, We are a brand new product that we feel is different than anything in the marketplace now. We are trying to reach out to influential people to get the word out about our product We are very passionate about our frozen 100% All Natural fruit snack. We use only whole fruits and vegetables in Froozer. Using our patented technology we blend the produce to create a creamy and delicious snack that is unique in the market place, and we do it without any diary, additives or sweeteners, Just 100% whole fruits and vegetables. (we do use less than 1% guar gum, a natural plant fiber). We are very different from others in the category, Froozer contains no juices, concentrates, purees, additives or sweeteners. Not even a drop of water, and most important...people love to eat it! We have done vendor events in in our local area and we sold 90% of our product in the short time we were there. People were buying it 10 at a time. I realize that the phrase “made with whole Fruit “has been overused, but when we say that, it is really true. For example our strawberry banana flavor has 4 ingredients. Whole Strawberries, Whole Grapes, Whole banana and less than 1% guar gum.
Please take a look at our web site when you get a chance.(link at the bottom of my signature) There you find some more info on Froozer Notice how simple our ingredient list is. (35-40 calories, 9g sugar high in vitamins and fiber) With people becoming more and more aware of nutrition and what they put into their bodies we feel it is the right product at the right time
Froozer is kosher, vegan, part of the Non GMO project as well as certified Gluten free
I was hoping I could get some feedback from you or maybe suggestions how we could work together,
I look forward to hearing from you,
Craig [email protected]
