First and foremost thanks for the quick feedback that is good service!
1: Good news about the receptive ness of the stomach mouth etc, now this is my response to brownies and so forth.
Im going to be jumping from many different points, and then how I went about creating this point of view.
What I feel is that this is a great idea because you have identified a need to what the world can potentially come to I see your solution both beneficially and although you leave a lot up to the customer I see, what you are making as something from what I see in Hong Kong as something of convenience - Hong Kong is a fast place and at times myself I even see myself miss the odd breakfast, lunch or dinner.
I do have potential protein shakes or bars that I can eat but I do not want to because - well I simply don’t like the taste, I am not necessarily saying change because of me, but rather I want you to view what is happening around me and with 8 Million people. So I have made as I said a lot of preliminary interviews with people and it was really those things eg: Colour, Taste, Price - People and myself is that I view this as something as a quick fix sort of thing say I get home late from work or I have a 7:30am meeting I can quickly jump up and get something tasty and is convenient that I need not think about. Im lazy sometimes okay.
But if I can hold out because I did calculations and the price you are charging in effect I can get real food, although this disregards nature and the environment. It brings me personal satisfaction and I will be selfish and I know many others of my friends, family and relations - Because I have asked eg: Why would I buy that if it doesn’t taste like anything, I like my food, man that shit looks ratchet.
I know this may sound hateful towards your product, or negative but really I would like for you to look at this in a developmental way as a way you can improve your product and grow your market and sharing of your vision. Because you have addressed you facts.
If you have heard this - okay, disregard me. It is up to you - but I am just giving you examples of what I have done.
However back to my Hong Kong market right now there are 8 Million people that are work orientated and but also the ageing population is now having trouble to find food as well, they do have subsidies. But I like this potential alternative that you are showing.
So tell me your thoughts, and I’d really like to reiterate this is not being negative. But rather how can you make this more appealing.
— Possibly you can add customisation to your marketing, although that means there is a lot of potential build up of stock. But aside from that Im sure you know, but me in Hong Kong I can survive on HKD$500 breakfast lunch and dinner in the week, so I mean yes there is that battle.
Colour: I still feel lazy about that, and okay it can be easily changed - via food colouring.
But yes, okay. I must admit your points are valid and you do seem to know what is there and what can appeal to a customer - Im lazy, im sometimes not creative, and I want something that taste nice, with minimal effort, but I still have take out - so yeah, the idea I want it to actually achieve something because I feel that also you should want to have good service, and to me that is what I want from service side of things!
Thanks, Marco (smiley face, hamster face - because i cant post images -.-)
PS: Keep strong and keep up the good work - you have inspired me as well for my own perception of things that I have tried to get my friends to get this with me! And also congratulations on your coverage.
