American Made - Martha Stewart Magazine in Baltimore October 11 2013, 0 Comments

Even after a few months to reflect, we still can't believe how lucky we were to participate in Baltimore's meet-up in July with Martha Stewart Living Magazine. They were in town as part of their American Made series - a national competition that highlights artisan small businesses across the United States. We were fortunate enough to display our handmade snacks next to a dozen supremely talented makers and to demonstrate to the folks from Martha Stewart Living Magazine how many amazing things are happening here in Baltimore. And to top it all off, the film crew even visited our commercial bakery the next day!

Snack Catering October 09 2013, 0 Comments

We've had such a fun time this summer baking snacks for all sorts of events in Baltimore- housewarming parties, bridal and baby showers, and wedding favors too!

In September, we stamped our honey graham crackers with the bride and groom's initials for a dark chocolate graham sandwich cookie as a bridal shower favor. We also enjoyed making a variety of freshly popped popcorn for a 40th birthday party, Rosemary Parmesan popcorn and Sweet Black Pepper popcorn. Our classics like Baked Cheddar Cheese Stamps and Spicy and Smokey Mixed Nuts have also made perfect additions to wedding cocktail hours.

DAD SNACKS June 14 2013, 0 Comments

We're not sure about you all, but over here at Kinderhook we know some dads who just LOVE TO SNACK. We have fond childhood memories of being so impressed by dads who can eat entire sleeves of Pecan Sandies or entire boxes of cheeze-its in one day. Impressive is really the only word for that, right?

Because we know how much snacks mean to dads, and because we have a prettttty big soft spot for 'em, we came up with some truly special Father's Day snacks for you to share with yours. Wise Crackers are a delicious variation of our Baked Cheddar Cheese Stamps, but with roasted jalapeno, cayenne and cumin mixed it - yum! We also put together Double Chocolate Peanut Butter cookies, which are an incredibly rich chocolate cookie filled with chocolate peanut butter ganache and topped with flaky Maldon salt. And lastly, but certainly not least, Black Pepper Shortbread. They have the same buttery crunch of our classic shortbread but with a perfect little kick of black pepper - so good, we might have to start making them every week!

You can find Wise Crackers + Black Pepper Shortbread individually packaged or all three snacks in a clean, white gift box at the following locations: Fleet Street Market in Fells Point, Chesapeake Wine Company in Canton or Trohv in Hampden.

Happy Father's Day!

Our Snacking Future May 30 2013, 2 Comments

Dearest snackers,

It's all really happening...and fast!

A few short weeks ago, we successfully raised over $12,000 thanks to your generous backing. We've now received the funds and will be going in one week to purchase beautiful new convection ovens and the remaining equipment necessary to outfit our amazing commercial bakery. We'll be making a few updates to the building with the help of some talented friends, like installing a vent fan so we don't melt in the quickly approaching Baltimore summer heat. By the end of June, we plan to be baking all of our snacks in this wonderful space - THANKS TO YOU!

This means that all of the snack rewards for donating will be baked in the very ovens that your support allowed us to purchase. Truly incredible! All 75 of you will be receiving your snacks in July - we'll be in touch soon to plan out all of the fun details.

Please make sure to follow us on our blog and facebook page to get further updates on our grand plans for this year, such as the three Baltimore farmers marketsstarting next week or the launch of mail-order snacking!

We cannot thank you enough, but we'll certainly keep trying! Thank you, thank you, thank you for supporting our snack-filled dreams.

Farm Feast II May 18 2013, 0 Comments

There are a few things we really, really love in this world:
1. snacks (obviously)
2. delicious food
3. farms
4. eating outside

This coming Wednesday evening we will be once again partnering with Blacksauce Kitchen and the Urban Farm Alliance to host the second Farm Feast-- a fundraising dinner for the Urban Farm Alliance's tool bank-- and a combination of all the things we really love. The dinner will be held at Hidden Harvest Farm, a delightful little urban farm in the heart of Station North. The event will feature a by-donation cocktail hour and 3-course meal for only $40! Farms in the Alliance are donating freshly-harvested produce, and we also have donations from local meat, vodka and beer producers. Wow!

This is truly an event not to be missed. If you haven't bought a ticket yet, don't waste a minute! They are nearly sold out. You can get your tickets here. Still not convinced? Just check out how beautiful the event was last time....

Invent Your Own Snack! April 25 2013, 0 Comments

We came up with so many fun rewards for our Kickstarter campaign, like funny fridge magnets and art cards, even snack sampler boxes. But our absolutely favorite one is the Legendary Snacker - you can INVENT your very own snack for a $500 donation.

We'll work with you to create a snack using your favorite flavors, put a new twist on your old favorite, or use your name as inspiration for the naming of the snack! You'll receive samples of your snack creation right on your doorstep and it'll be featured at a Baltimore area farmers market. Pretty fantastic, huh?

Donate today and we'll start brainstorming your very own snack!     http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/349088423/re-imagine-snacking-with-kinderhook

Last spring, we invented snacks for some very generous supporters. Patty Cakes were the first - a delicious, moist coconut cake dipped in chocolate with a thin layer of jam in the middle. Next, we created Wise Crackers for a funny gentlemen who enjoyed a white cheddar cheese cracker loaded with roasted jalapenos and cumin. Lease's cups were our last invention, combining his love for chocolate, peanut butter and thai food. Just imagine what we can come up with your favorites!thai peanut butter cupswise crackers

Our beautiful new commercial bakery! April 12 2013, 5 Comments

Well, snackers - we signed a lease on Monday! It's official! We have our very own, beautiful commercial bakery right in the middle of Baltimore City. We are so thrilled to be able to continue growing to meet all of your snacking needs.

With our new space, we will be able to launch new products and distribution methods including expanding to more grocers in the Baltimore and DC area, launching our online store + mail-order subscription service, and start our corporate snacking program.

But our beautiful new kitchen is missing a few essential pieces of equipment such as convection ovens, industrial mixers and a heat sealer. So we are launching - right this very moment - a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds necessary to get our kitchen up + running.

Check out all of the amazing rewards you can get for being a donor and the gorgeous video filmed + edited by our amazingly talented friend, Christopher Moore.

Seriously though, thanks. January 02 2013, 6 Comments

Its January. And Kinderhook Snacks is in Baltimore Magazine's January issue - can you believe it?  We hardly can! Maybe its because of how wildly busy the holidays were due to all the ravenous snackers in Baltimore (p.s. we love you). Maybe its because this year has generally been a snack-filled whirlwind. Either way, we could not be happier or more excited for the year to come.

We wanted to take some time to say THANK YOU to all of our supporters. We simply could not be where we are today without you. For you, we made our most special Brown Sugar Sesame Shortbread Sandwich cookies with smooth dark chocolate in the middle and flaky Maldon salt on top.

Image

Thanks to the amazing stores in Baltimore that wholeheartedly support locally made products, including Kinderhook Snacks! Green Onion, Fleet Street, Milk and Honey, Chesapeake Wine Company, 2910 and Trohv.

Thanks to Eric Rohter, who developed our branding and website. You are amazing.

Thanks to Chris Moore and Evan Merkel, who are working on an incredible new video for our website! Coming soon!

Thanks to our friends and family who have mentored us, helped us during crunch time and through all-night baking sessions.

And, of course, thanks to all you snackers! We hope to continue providing you with delicious and intriguing snacks for years to come. Let us know if there is a special new snack you'd like to see this year. We are planning for lots of expansion, including our very own kitchen space, so keep on snacking!

Thank you, again.
