Encrypted: new smoothie innovations

CONFIDENTIAL: This series of innovation was inspired by . Ĵuic𝐞 ƤⓇesร’s ¨˜ˆrecent, brilliant collaboration with D*ov*e S*oap. (See image at bottom of page.) 

Greetings, esteemed Innovation Team. I wish to express my sincere appreciation for your boundless enthusiasm and steadfast commitment to our company's growth.

F**K! These JP guys are good!

We overlooked that people might love the combination of a frozen smoothie with a flashback to the traumatic memory of our mothers washing our mouths out with soap for swearing.

Our loss! I personally would have called this unique series: SwearWord Smoothies

3. ListerGreen: As health and wellness continue to be a priority for consumers, we have developed a green smoothie that focuses on nourishment, detoxification, energy, nutrient infusion, and halitosis (horrid breath). It blends nutrient-rich greens like spinach, kale, and spirulina, banana, along with a hint of Listerine Cool Mint.

These three smoothies have been meticulously formulated to offer unique tastes and health benefits, setting them apart from existing products in the market. Let's collaborate and discuss how we can leverage these creations to capture the attention of big companies and make a significant impact in the industry. Remember, confidentiality is crucial at this stage, so let's keep these developments within our team until we are ready to share them with the appropriate stakeholders.

In the near future, we will be working closely with Tums, Trident Gum, Speed Stick by Menon, Burt's Bees, and Mountain Dew. Stay tuned.

CONFIDENTIAL REPORT: Team, as you can see, these JP guys are playing for keeps. It's essential that we stay ahead of all of our competitors in terms of these innovative ideas. To ensure this, I'd like to request that each of you bring your household beauty items to our next innovation meeting. Let's collaborate and strategize on how to leverage these items to further our innovations. By working together, we can maintain our edge in the market and continue to lead the way. Looking forward to our productive discussion.

Our Failures This Month Taught us: It's clear that we're facing challenges in merging the Head & Shoulders Shampoo with our Blue Skies smoothies, particularly in terms of flavor. While the color match is promising, the taste remains an issue. Despite our efforts with banana, the result still resembles soap. Here are a few suggestions to consider:

1. **Flavor Synergy:** Investigate other ingredients or flavors that could harmonize with the shampoo's essence and mitigate the soapy taste. Consider exploring various fruits, herbs, or sweeteners that could balance out the flavors.

2. **Blending Techniques:** Experiment with different blending techniques and ratios of ingredients to better integrate the shampoo's qualities into the smoothie. Achieving a smoother texture and consistent flavor distribution might help mask the unwanted taste.

3. **Flavor Enhancements:** Incorporate natural flavor enhancers like vanilla extract, cocoa powder, or honey to help mask the soap-like taste. These additions might help to neutralize the unwanted flavors.

4. **Consult Experts:** Collaborate with flavor chemists or food scientists who specialize in taste and aroma. They can provide insights into how to better blend the shampoo's attributes with the smoothie ingredients.

5. **Focus Groups:** Conduct blind taste tests with diverse groups of individuals to gather feedback on the flavor profile. Their input can help us identify the exact source of the soapy taste and guide us toward solutions.

6. **Ingredient Adjustments:** Consider altering the formulation of the shampoo or the smoothie to minimize conflicting flavors. This could involve modifying the concentration of particular ingredients or opting for alternative formulations.

7. **Gradual Integration:** Instead of mixing the shampoo directly into the smoothie, consider introducing it in smaller amounts over time. Gradual integration might allow consumers to adjust to the new flavor profile more easily.

8. **Customer Engagement:** Engage our loyal customers and seek their opinions through surveys or social media platforms. Their feedback can provide insights into whether they'd be receptive to this unique combination.

9. **Iterative Testing:** Continuously test and refine the formula based on feedback and observations. Keep iterating until we achieve a more palatable balance between the shampoo's attributes and the desired smoothie flavor.

Remember, innovation often involves trial and error. It's important to keep an open mind and continue experimenting until we find a solution that aligns with our goals.
