Holiday Connections

Holiday Connections
We're celebrating lots of fun new ways to get together for the holidays—online, with friends and family, and with our communities. Won't you join us?

Sweet Tweets

Follow Us
In August, C&H Sugar held its first Twitter party—a nationwide get-together on the popular social-media site. Almost 300 of you participated, jumping into conversations, posting questions, replying to other's comments, and sharing ideas about our newest product, C&H Light. (Look for more about C&H Light in a future newsletter.) There was so much activity during the two-hour event, says C&H Social Media Manager Lauren Aufiero, that C&H became a trending topic throughout the U.S. We'll be hosting another Twitter party soon, so follow us on Twitter to learn how you can take part—it's easy, fun, and free!—and to get tips and recipes every day!

Bake for a Good Cause

Share Our Strength's Great American Bake Sale (GABS)
Summer may be over, but there's still time to join with Share Our Strength's Great American Bake Sale (GABS) s to host a bake sale to help end childhood hunger. Hold your sale by October 31 so that proceeds can benefit organizations in your community that feed hungry children. Visit the GABS website to learn how to host your own successful sale.

Cookie Swap Primer

Cookie exchanges are rewarding for all involved, but getting started can be a little overwhelming. C&H Sugar puts you on the right track with the holiday cookie-swap section of our website. You'll learn how to organize an exchange, pick a theme, and create effective displays. And we suggest plenty of crowd-pleasing recipes, too!
