So as you may know if you read our blog post last week, this Sunday, the TruffleShuffle team took part in the Portishead Raft Race!

The aim was to raise as much money as possible for the RNLI Portishead Lifeboat and have a bit of fun at the same time.

Well you’ll be glad to hear we succeeded on both counts and we were thrilled to come away with two prizes, one for ‘Best Designed Raft’ and the second (and most important in our opinion) for most money raised by a team.

We raised a whopping £3,241 for the Portishead Lifeboat and we’d like to say a huge thank to you to everyone who sponsored us. We really can’t tell you how much we and the RNLI appreciate every penny.

Now for the bad news, despite the best efforts of our valiant crew, we came second to last in the actual raft race! Although our raft looked pretty damn awesome (even if we do say so ourselves,) it turned out our home made paddles were pretty useless and the whole raft was pretty wobbly once in the water; cue plenty of capsizes and lots of wet sailors. Shiver me timbers – quite literally!

Lots of fun was had by all though and we’ll definitely be back with a new and hopefully better design for 2017.

Check out some more pics below…..







A huge thanks again to all our fantastic and generous sponsors and to the TruffleShuffle team for giving up their time to build and sail our very own version of One Eyed Willies Pirate Ship – the Inferno.

PS there’s still time to sponsor us here!!

For as long as we’d like to remember, each morning we’ve been joined around the breakfast table by one special brand….Kellogg’s!

Creators of some of the most iconic cereals and adjoining characters, Kellogg’s have been the boys to beat in the cereal game and are as much a household staple now as they have been for the last 100 years.

Inspired by their greatness and of course our fond memories through the years of some of our favourite bowls of retro deliciousness, we’ve just gotten our hands on some amazing new Kellogg’s merchandise including notebooks, lip balms, keyrings, erasers and much much more!

To help really get into the spirit, we’ve decided to base one of our classic 10 Things You [Probably] Didn’t Know About… blog posts on this food icon. Hopefully you’ll also get to learn some pretty cool facts along the way too. Enjoy!

1- Kellogg’s has been to the moon! Yep the Apollo 11 astronauts brought a Kellogg cereal to the moon, as part of their breakfasts during the mission.

2- Five Kellogg’s cereals are among the top 10 best-selling brands in the United States: Frosted Flakes, Special K, Frosted Mini-Wheats, Froot Loops, and Raisin Bran.

3- Loved getting toys in your cereal as a kid?? Well Kellogg’s were the very first people to do this, starting out by giving away children’s books (The Funny Jungleland Moving Pictures Book) and pin-back buttons.

4- It all started by mistake! Controversial doctor John Harvey Kellogg and his brother Will Keith Kellogg invented corn flakes by accident in 1894. They were trying to make granola.

5- The iconic Kellogg’s logo was first handwritten by founder Will Keith Kellogg and has been with the company ever since.

6- The very first box of Kellogg’s cereal was made of entirely recycled material.  Today, almost all of their cereal boxes are made from recycled paperboard.

7- If laid end to end, the boxes of Kellogg’s cereal eaten since 1906 would reach to the moon and back over 160 times.

8- Know the Times Square adverts in New York? Well…..you guessed it….Kellogg’s was the first company to advertise there.

9- In 2012, Kellogg’s became the world’s second-largest snack food company (after Pepsico) by acquiring the Pringles potato crisps brand from Procter & Gamble for $2.7 billion in a cash deal.

10- Kellogg’s has had a number of themed cereals over the years including; Bart Simpson’s No Problem-O’s, Eat My Shorts and Peanut Butter Chocolate Crunch Cereal, Homer’s Cinnamon Donut Cereal, Buzz Blasts (based on Buzz Lightyear), C-3PO’s “a New (crunchy) Force at Breakfast”, Mr. T’s Muscle Crunch, Pokémon Cereal, Woody Woodpecker cereal and so much more. Busy busy!

So there you have em folks! Hopefully you’ve learnt a little more about your breakfast buddy and can bore to death WOW all your friends and family with some extra pub quiz trivia.

Know any other cool Kellogg’s facts? Let us know by posting them below in the comments box. Also don’t forget to check out our huuuuge range of official and exclusive Kellogg’s T-Shirts from just £19.99!

Man overboard! It’s only gone and been the weekend again!

Searching high and low for any available materials like a stranded island dweller, we find ourselves thinking up and creating one of the most seaworthy rafts our eyes have ever seen.

You see the site, you see the products….but we all know you just really want to see just who’s behind the scenes at Truffle Towers right? Well our TruffleShuffler insider blog series is the perfect place to look.
Each month we corner kindly ask a member of the team and interrogate politely ask them a few questions to help uncover who they are, what they do and just what makes them tick. It’s that simple!

This post we’re taking some time out to introduce another of our warehouse superheroes and all round crazy creative Chris! Enjoy and good luck Chris!

What do you do here at Truffle Towers?
I work in the warehouse, doing anything from receiving stock and booking it into our system through to picking and packing all the orders we get and having it ready to be shipped out to the customers, and everything in between. That and drinking too much coffee, asking stupid questions and generally making a nuisance of myself.
.
How long have you been at TruffleShuffle?
Almost two years. I started as a Christmas temp in 2013, and I’ve basically just not left. I don’t think anyone’s noticed yet.
What do you like most about working here / best thing about your job?
I love how amazing the team we have is – everyone is so easy going and and the sense of community is really strong, everyone really looks after each other and it’s great. Plus I get to come into work every day with my wife Michelle who is customer service manager so that’s pretty great too.
.
What is your favourite tee currently on the site?
We have so many awesome designs, but my favourite has to be the Men’s Black Guardians Of The Galaxy Group Logo Marvel T-Shirt.
When you’re not at TruffleTowers, what do you like to do?
When I’m not here I also work for myself as a freelance illustrator which is pretty cool as I get to draw and paint almost every day, which is my number one favourite thing to do. I also work as stage hand/road crew which has led to some pretty amazing times and tours, and going away to visit new places with Michelle is a firm favourite too.
Name three things you like….
Apart from the obvious like hanging out with my wife and our dog, I like painting and drawing, historical books/films/places, tattoos and beer.
.
Name three things you don’t like….
I don’t like eating, burping or any chewing noises near me, especially in a quiet room. I can’t help it for some reason and it makes my blood boil. I also don’t like liver or grown adults talking in baby voices.
.
Favourite three films as a kid?
Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade and Top Gun.
Who is your idol?
That would have to be Lemmy.
Who is the last band you saw live?
The last band I saw live was an awesome welsh three piece band called Pizza Tramp, they played a local show in a pub nearby. Before than that Michelle and I went to a festival in Belgium at the beginning of May and got to see a whole bunch of bands including Against Me, Off! and Iron Reagan.
.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I’m lucky enough to have been to quite a few places, mostly on tours and the like, but if I had to choose one place it would be Nepal, with at least a few weeks each to do the Annapurna range and Everest base camp.
.
Which iconic TV/Film car would you most like to own?
I don’t know if it constitutes iconic particularly but the hot rod from Mad Max – Fury Road is so awesome.
What music are you listening to at the moment?
I tend to have a pretty varied music lineup on my iPod but a few folks I have been listening to recently are Chuck Ragan, The Company Band and The Jezebels. The music I listen to pretty much every day is Motorhead, Black Sabbath and Creedence Clearwater Revival.
.
If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?
‘Wait, What?’
.
If you won the lottery, what would you do with the money?
I would do the standards first like make sure my family and friends were taken care of, buy a holiday etc. After that I would buy several if not many bulldogs and a converted barn for my wife, a motorbike and custom art studio for myself; and then spend the rest on trying to genetically produce a real life Rocket Raccoon.
.
So there you have it folks! We’re so nearly covered everyone here at TruffleShuffle so hopefully you’ve uncovered a little more about us and what we all do.

Stay tuned for more!

xoxo
