2017: year in review
Two thousand seventeen, what a year!!
Starting on a sweet note, we made it easier than ever to Dig into the Sweet Stuff with a re-invention of the California cantaloupe e-newsletter which delivers – you guessed it – all the California cantaloupe things! This also included a revamped blog where you can now browse all the California cantaloupe things all at once, or you can opt for a concentrated look at recipe inspiration or seek the latest in season updates. This year also saw a makeover of californiacantaloupes.com, wherein the stuff you love the most was given the spotlight it deserves. Can’t forget about the baseball game ticket giveaway – where four winners each won four tickets to take a few of their lucky friends and family members to their pick of a SF Giants home game. California cantaloupes re-invented the salad – or shattered the boundaries of what defines a salad (see: chocolate covered dessert salad). And last but far from least, the long-deserved spotlight was shone on the unsung heroes who year after year provide the best possible product to sweet cantaloupe lovers all over, and you can now meet these folks all in one place.
Go ahead, sink your spoon (or your teeth) into the Sweet Stuff here or here (both packed with all the deliciousness of the season and available year round, so you can enjoy all things California cantaloupe while you wait for it to hit store shelves or once you have some on your table).
A fresh, new look for the website with a homepage paying proper homage to the good stuff – like our superheroes (the California cantaloupe farmers), and the delicious recipes that make the season all the sweeter.
Four California cantaloupe-loving San Francisco Giants baseball fans won four great tickets each to their pick of any home game. Hey, batter batter!
Forget all you thought you knew about fruit salad, these recipes shattered the “norm” that has long needed redefining. Like you’ve never seen before, five renditions of salad that you’ll wish you discovered long ago.
A one-stop-shop where you can fan-girl out over the rockstar superheroes who grow the sweet California cantaloupe you have come to know and love. Meet one, meet them all – these folks work hard year after year to bring you the best season after season.
With yet another fun-packed year full of the sweetest, juiciest California cantaloupe in all the land, we extend the sincerest of thanks to our fellow California cantaloupe fans as well as the hard working group of folks who make the sweetest season possible. With these communities and their dedication to California cantaloupe, anything is possible. And with that in mind, we look forward to the next year – may it be as delicious and bountiful as ever.
