We heart our Bees and strive long and hard to keep all y’all happy and healthy. Unplanned menu changes can feel like hiccups, but they usually lead to bigger and better things. Tastier ones, too. Here are some subtle changes percolating at The Hive and The Rose during the next month.
‘Bee Effective’ Is ‘Bee Gone’…For Now.
Many of you Bees know that The Juice Standard (TJS) procures organic produce from the most local sources possible…and that living in the desert, that means we depend on our good neighbor California for a sizeable portion of what we press.
In the past few weeks, storms and high temps across The Golden State have wreaked havoc on many crops that go into our recipes. From mildew and insect damage, to internal plant burn and burnage on plant tips and fringe, growers across the region are suffering mightily, which means buyers like us have to re-adjust.
Thankfully, our growers’ crops are allowing us to forge ahead with nearly everything TJS presses! But for the foreseeable (and hopefully brief) future, we’re hitting pause on BEE EFFECTIVE until we can bring it to you made from the healthiest, most nutrient-dense organic produce possible.
We’ve had an overwhelming demand for BEE HAPPY lately and it’s been selling faster than tickets to a D-Trump stump speech…to the point where we’ve been selling out. Like, a lot. It honestly took us by surprise. We’ve always had crazy-great feedback about BEE HAPPY’s rich cacao-ness and gentle spicing (and have you tried it in cocktails? Ooh-la-laaa….), so the first few times it happened were just kinda like, “Hmm. Vegas must be on a colossal chocolate kick.” But then the sell outs became more regular. Then we heard frustration in some of our loyal bees’ voices. Made us feel all 💔 inside.
So in the interest of full disclosure—beecuase we’re deep into transparency and that mindfulness shee-it—we want you to know we’ve recognized the problem and are upping production of both BEE HAPPY and BEE EXCELLENT…two of TJS’ richest, most satisfying nut milks. That said, don’t be afraid to call ahead and reserve what you’re planning to pick up. Our staff at The Rose and The Hive will be more than happy to oblige….
One of the most important things about being a wholehearted company in the service industry—any industry, really—is “knowing thy audience.” And while we’re sorry to have disappointed any of you bees even for a hot minute, we’re chocking it up to growing pains and better learning the fine art of supply and demand. Thanks for sticking by us and for coming back, even if you didn’t get what you wanted when you wanted it. We aim to please and we’ll always strive to be better so that you may live your healthiest, WHealthiest lives.
