chinese-herbal-medicine-to-treat-autoimmune-disordersBoy, do I feel silly. I left a trail of Tweets about how I was going into the freeze dried fruit business. Hey, I’ve done lots of things over the years, and managed to make a lot of money along the way. Nothing was going to keep me away from my latest brainstorm.

So, I loaded my van up down by the river six or eight times with boxes of ‘cots and prunes, after having five humongous freezers delivered to my home — it’s a 900 square foot condo on the ground floor. Man, I had all those box freezers all up to maximum temperature by the time I rolled in at midnight.

Well, I was up ‘till about 3 a.m. working on all those prunes and apricots…pitting, cleaning…pitting…cle…OK, it was a lot of work and I kept all of my social media friends updated on my progress.

Well, for some reason, being a city boy and all, I didn’t get the memo or part about what the “freeze” was in “freeze dried,” or anything about the whole darn process.

Needless to say, the next morning, when I proudly opened up my first freezer to check on my newly “freeze dried fruit,” I was stricken with one big stomach ache — I was looking at a 350-pound chunk of frozen prunes. Man, I thought a damn alien hopped in my freezer and expired or something.

And that wasn’t the only problem. You see, I had contacted hundreds of outlets like Big Lots and grammar and high schools and even the warden who ran our unfenced prison across town to tell them how I could bring them the best darn freeze-dried fruit they’d ever come across.

OMG! You don’t want to have a power outage when you’ve got a half ton of fruit all froze up in freezers encircling yours and three other condos. Whew. It was a veritable river of apricot and prune juice flowing through our nice campus — the dogs and cats loved it, but the owners told me they were up all night with their pets just keeping them comfortable…if you know what I mean.

OK, so this was one of those “hyperboles” to make a point about where to go if you need to stock up on inventory surplus items like Frozen Concentrate Orange Juice (FCOJ…is not a NASDAQ symbol to chase), and excess inventories that are sure to make your purchasing department.

Contact us for the straight-away way to benefit with surplus stock.

“This is Houston to the Space Shuttle crew.  Do you read me?  How’s it going out there.”

“Houston, we read you.  The view is amazing.  We’ve never seen anything more beautiful.  Seeing the earth from space is just incredible.  But, Houston, we do have a problem.  We never want to eat another piece of freeze dried fruit ever again.  Do you read me?

“Well, crew, we read you loud and clear and that is indeed a problem.  What on earth are we going to do with all that freeze-dried fruit?”

Hmmmm….  What do you think NASA should do?  Should they throw away every bag of freeze-dried fruit that they own?  Should they force all the new astronaut trainees to eat through 50 bags each as part of a new “Space Shuttle Induction Program?”  Should they do science experiments on lab rats to find out why the astronauts will no longer eat the freeze-dried fruits?  No, they shouldn’t do any of those things.

“Houston, we read you, and we think you should call Lakeside Foods.”

That’s it!  NASA won’t have to waste their precious bounty of freeze-dried fruits, nor will they have to feel any guilt about these leftover products, because Lakeside Foods will know exactly what to do with them.

At Lakeside Foods, if you have an excess of bulk items, whether it’s raw materials, food ingredients, or finished goods, we will gladly take it off your hands and put it into someone else’s.
