Let's take it back to when I was a teenager about 12-13. I was actually "dating" one of Dustin's friends and I'm pretty sure he was dating one of my friends. Anyways, I knew his name from the few times we had hung out as teenagers. All throughout high school, my friend worked for a pizza place and she delivered to Dustin at times and EVERY time she would delivery to his house she would text me about it. Weird, I know but that's how girls are.
At the start of this year my friend was snapchatting me and sent me a photo of Dustin because they were hanging out and I replied "Who is your cute bearded ginger friend?" and he told me it was Dustin. I'm pretty sure I didn't reply after that because I thought "I cannot like this kid- I just can't" With the history of me knowing him so young and my friend texting me every time she went to his house- I felt like this was a bad idea to even think he was cute.. which I did think he was pretty adorable.
Then the day I arrived in Texas for physical therapy at Project Walk, I noticed a friend request on my Facebook and it was Dustin. I accepted and messaged him "Hello. Uhm, do I know you?" even though I totally knew who he was. I tried playing stupid or whatever. From that a friendship started and then I began to really like this kid. We would talk on the phone for hours at night and the day I came home from Texas, we hung out. Basically we have been together almost daily since March and to think...it all started (again) when I said "Hello."
Think about all the relationships you have in your life and how they all started- I'm sure they all started with a simple "Hey" "Hi" or "Hello" too.. and I'm about to introduce you to something you're going to love Lindt Hello chocolate....and it starts with a simple Hello, too!
From a design perspective, these are spot on. They have the cutest bright quirky packaging and they offer a range of flavors. They have Caramel Brownie, Strawberry Cheesecake,Crunchy Nougat, and Cookies & Cream- sounds amazing, right? Right! They also offer Bars Sticks and Mini-Stick Bags for whatever you're feeling. My favorite is cookies and cream- so yummy!
I am already hooked but then I found out they are teaming up with Ashley Tisdale to co-produce a YouTube series “It Started with HELLO” premiering on September 12th on the "It Started with HELLO" Youtube page. The first episode came out on September 18, 2014. Today episode three of four came out- so go check that out HERE. I love YouTube and I think it's a great way to advertise!
