Happy Trail Mix Day!

Today is National Trail Mix Day! Did you know that Native Americans were among the first to eat trail mix, and originally included buffalo meat in the recipe? While our recipe does not include buffalo meat, it’s still a delicious treat that’s fun to make! So slip on your hiking boots, strike up the campfire and enjoy a salty-sweet treat for Trail Mix Day!

 

Crispy Treat Trail Mix

  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups Teddy Grams
  • 2 cups pretzel sticks
  • 1 cup whole almonds
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup chocolate or peanutbutter chips

 

PREPARATION

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Spread graham crackers, pretzel sticks and almonds in a single layer on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Place butter in a small microwave safe bowl and microwave in thirty second intervals until fully melted.
  4. Whisk in the brown sugar and vanilla extract.
  5. Drizzle the mixture over your dry ingredients. Stir gently to coat evenly.
  6. Bake for one hour, stirring mixture every fifteen minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before adding the mini marshmallows and chocolate or peanutbutter chips.
  8. Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks.

July Company Outing

The end of July is upon us, and the Crisp Team enjoyed another fantastic company outing! This time we all met up at the Rec Room here in Memphis where we played some arcade games, challenged each other in some video games, and enjoyed some pepperoni pizza and drinks! The summer days are still hot in Memphis, but this was one cool night out with Crisp Marketing!

Friday Afternoon Saturday Night Fever

Another Birthday/Happy Hour combo? Heck yeah! This past week we celebrated another year of being awesome for one of our newest team members – Billy! We figured we’ve had more than enough cake lately, so why not shake things up and do a Birthday pie instead? Salted caramel chocolate pecan – pass me a piece please!

For our Happy Hour, we danced our way back to the 1970’s with a Seven & Seven – the same drink that John Travolta’s character ‘Tony’ drinks at the disco! Now, everybody do the hustle and join us in wishing Billy a Happy Birthday!

Happy Hour & Happy Birthday!

Last Friday was our weekly Happy Hour, and we also had the pleasure of celebrating TWO employee birthdays as well! Our in-house Graphic Designer Hayley and our Email Marketing Manager David – Happy Birthday from Crisp Marketing!

Friday was also International Beer Day (such a busy day!), so we themed our Happy Hour accordingly and had homemade beergaritas! Birthday cake and beergaritas – the perfect end to a fantastic work week!

Announcing: The Weight Loss Challenge Winner!

Hello everyone!

Recently, we held a 4 week weight-loss challenge with our Memphis and Ft. Lauderdale office. Participants contributed $5 a week and worked as hard as they could to reach their personal fitness goals. At the end of the 4 weeks, the person who lost the most weight/got closest to their goal would take home the jackpot. Crisp Marketing was kind enough to match dollar-for-dollar what was contributed! Now that the 4 weeks have passed, it’s time to announce our Weight Loss Challenge Winner…

 

Ryan Labott from our Ft. Lauderdale, FL office! From all of us at Crisp Marketing: Congratulations and job well done!

4th Of July Office Party

Another incredible 4th of July has come and gone, and Crisp Marketing celebrated in style (as usual)! We kicked off our office party with a catered Burger Bar from Red Robin. Then we played Pin The Star On The Flag, did a tie dye craft, and ended the celebration with some sparklers and fireworks! That’s one more awesome celebration for the books. We hope everyone had a fantastic 4th of July!

June Outing

Last week the Crisp Crew took our June Outing at The Liquor Store here in Memphis! This quirky and charming little restaurant is nestled in with small art galleries and shops in the creative area of Memphis known as Broad Ave. We wined and dined the night away, and then a few of us took a walk down Broad to snap some photos and enjoy the sunset! We’re already looking forward to the next outing!
