Faced with rising cost of living and higher prices of goods and services, many of us are faced with the challenge of stretching our hard-earned money, finding new ways to earn extra, and tucking in some savings for the rainy day.
For teenagers who wish to augment their allowances, part time jobs are usually their first option. But what if they need to babysit younger siblings while parents are at work? Or what if they need to study for an exam? For senior citizens who wish to find stuff to do to alleviate boredom and still earn on the side, what are the options?
Why not tap Mr. Hat Gulaman and make and sell made-to-order jelly? It is fun and easy to make, Mr. Hat Gulaman jelly powder and other ingredients are inexpensive, it is affordable for most households, and most of all, it is delicious. Jelly is everyone’s comfort food and traditional party food. It could also be an everyday meryenda or sweet ending to lunch, baon or dinner. Food is always something everyone needs. For busy families, happy food such as a colorful jelly on the table can lift moods and put smiles on their faces. The humble jelly or gulaman is a happy dessert that will always be welcomed on Filipinos’ tables.
Teenagers and their lolos and lolas can bond over this home-based “business.” While earning pocket money and adding to their savings, they also get to make memories that they will treasure for the rest of their lives. Plus, lolos and lolas can pass on their traditional jelly recipes to their teenage apos. Or they can check out meryenda recipes on the Mr. Hat Gulaman website and make them together.
Bonding and earning over Mr. Hat Gulaman jelly desserts
The first and third generation can learn from each other with their joint made-to-order jelly side business. Teenage apos, for example, can lead the “branding” and “marketing” side of their “business” through social media posts or messages to their target “markets” – relatives, neighbors, classmates, friends, parents’ co-workers.
The first generation – lolos and lolas – meanwhile, can supervise the “production” side. This include choosing ingredients such as Mr. Hat Gulaman’s various flavors, making gulaman following traditional recipes everyone grew up with or following Mr. Hat Gulaman’s recipes, and making sure every dessert is made with love, care and proper hygiene.
Both can come up with the initial capital, work on the packaging, pricing, and delivery.
