Thank You Tempt

Like I say in this letter, I don’t often write food companies to compliment them on a product, but this was worth a letter. I sent this to the company today.Have you tried hemp milk? Don’t be afraid. Just try it. Yes, it takes some getting use to, but it is pleasant, nutritious and a nice alternative to cow’s milk. The most important advice I can give to all my clients is to eat a wide variety of foods. Hemp milk fits into that variety.

To All Of You,

I poured some of your unsweetened vanilla flavored hemp milk on cereal today for my three year old daughter and four year old son’s afternoon snack and they went crazy for it. What a delicious product you have!

I was first introduced to your product line at the Natural Foods Products Expo in Anaheim, California last year and believe it or not, did not get around to buying it until now. As a registered dietitian in private practice I take food product recommendations seriously for my clients. I do not spend much time writing food companies to compliment them on the work they do; your company is the exception. Thank you for Tempt! I will highly recommend your product to my clients, family and friends.

All the best,

Melanie R. Silverman MS, RD, IBCLC
