Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures

I know we’ve said it before – our group of beta testers is closed. But if you turned Felica (of Battle Creek, MI) down, well, then you really wouldn’t have a heart.

Felicia wrote to us and said, “we DESPERATELY need this kind of pouch for my 10 month old baby since now she refused to be spoon fed and she wants to do it herself (of course while it's fun, it's so messy). She loves those pouches and she can use it and suck it herself.”  “I even cut out the [disposable food] pouch so I can fill it with my own veggie/fruit blends, then I tape it (I know, pretty sad, but it works).”

Get this:

After hearing Felica’s moving story, and seeing her evocative pictures, we were feeling very sorry for her.  Yet were still on the fence.  Could we really hand over our very last sample? But when Felicia topped her plea off with a “Pretty please?” it sealed the deal. She was in.

When we told Felicia we’d give her our very last sample that we were saving for historical and sentimental purposes, and we saw her reaction, we knew that we had made the right decision.  First, when we told her we’d send her a pouch if she agreed to provide feedback she said, “Of course, YES!!! I mean, yes,  if you can find one :) I will understand if you cannot find one, (even though I will be really sad) . . . .”  Second, she told us that she had even made one of our recipes.  And third, if it wasn’t clear enough that Felicia was serious, she told us that she had been forced to put her lovely Simply Stone Fruit puree “into the used cut out pouch and tape it shut. *sigh*.”  You’ve seen the pictures.  We could suffer poor Felicia’s pain no longer.  

Here is Felicia’s child, sweet Rania, slurping Bananameal (thanks for the great recipe Felicia!) from what she calls her “tricked out pouch.”  We can’t wait to see her with our reusable food pouch – no tricks needed:
