    #20 How Appetite Appeal Can Help Grow Your Brand with Jamie Allebach

    How Appetite Appeal Can Help Grow Your Brand

    On this episode of the Peppered Podcast, we will be discussing Appetite Appeal. Not only is this one of my favorite topics in food and beverage marketing, but it’s a critical component in growing brands.

    The LOVE of FOOD is one of the strongest human emotions.

    Food fantasies—anticipating that special moment. How our imaginations can just run wild.

    It doesn’t just happen. Appetite appeal has two fundamental driving forces: Science and Art.

    The Science: Our metabolic need to eat. We need food and liquids to fuel our bodies. Humans have powerful mood-altering neurotransmitters in our brains that activate these senses, which ultimately drives us to eat. To crave.

    The Art: Unlike the science behind your appetite, the emotional aspect of eating is often driven by art and creativity. We eat with our eyes, ears, and imagination long before we actually taste anything. This is the artistry of creating appetite appeal.

    Join me as we discuss:
    The metabolic need to eat
    How our brains create the impulse or desire to eat
    Why most hunger and thirst is purely emotional
    The dopamine effect
    The artistry tapping into the emotions of appetite appeal
    We eat with our eyes and imagination
    Using words and imagery to mimic real-life eating experiences
    And much more

    #18 Catalina Crunch with Krishna Kaliannan

    Krishna Kaliannan is the founder of Catalina Crunch, a better-for-you cereal brand that could be equated to “healthy version” Cocoa Puffs.

    Hailed as a breakthrough in cereal science, Catalina Crunch has that same “light and crunchy” texture and delicious sweet taste that we all grew to love in our favorite childhood cereals—but, with none of the bad ingredients—and it’s low in carbs. In addition to an exciting brand, Krishna also has an incredible story behind his product, including his health journey with Type 1 Diabetes.

    On this episode of the podcast, we’ll be discussing:

    - The story behind Catalina Crunch
    - Functional foods that taste delicious
    - Transitioning from online to retail

    #17 A Sweet Story of Success with Loren Brill, Founder of Sweet Loren’s

    #17 A Sweet Story of Success with Loren Brill, Founder of Sweet Loren’s

    This episode of the Peppered Podcast is with Loren Brill, founder of Sweet Loren’s. Sweet Loren’s is a fast-emerging brand of refrigerated cookie dough—self-described as a clean food company transforming what it means to be convenient and delicious.

    I love the fact that Sweet Loren’s is extremely indulgent, deliciously sweet —and made with clean, simple ingredients. But more importantly, I love the story behind the brand.

    When founder, Loren Brill, was diagnosed with Stage 2 Hodgkin’s lymphoma, along with her treatments, she also knew that she needed to change her eating habits. But the one thing she just couldn’t give up were SWEETS. This began her journey on how to satisfy that sweet tooth—with quality, better-for-you ingredients—but without comprising on taste; which ultimately resulted in Sweet Loren’s cookie dough.

    On this episode of the Peppered Podcast, we’re going to dig deep into food trends, discussing:

    - The story behind the brand
    - The challenges of starting a new brand
    - Scaling-up—quickly!
    - Why core principles and values matter
    - The importance of clean, simple ingredients
    - Why consumers rally behind this brand
    - And more
