Hanover, MA (PRWEB) April 5, 2005
According to Yankelovich, a marketing firm that tracks social trends, "hiving" is the latest lifestyle trend, in which people view their home as a center of social activity. Some 64 percent of people place high priority on planning social activities around the home so that they can reconnect with people important to them. No wonder that FlyingNoodle.comÂs new Dinner and a Movie Club (http://www.flyingnoodle.com/dinner.tmpl) has become an instant hit.
Either on a one-time basis or once a month for a certain number of months, FlyingNoodle.comÂs Dinner and a Movie Club provides ingredients for a gourmet pasta meal for two, gourmet popcorn and a card valid for one Blockbuster movie rental. At just $25 a month (plus $2.95 for shipping), it makes a perfect treat for new parents, shut-ins, someone taking care of an ill relative, empty nesters who like to stay at home and dating couples who enjoy a "just us two" evening together.
"People are always looking for something different and fun to do together," says Raymond Lemire, "The Big Parmesan" of FlyingNoodle.com. "The Dinner and a Movie Club appeal builds on the way people love to help out in the kitchen, especially when directions are easy to follow. Then thereÂs munching on unusually flavored popcorn during a movie of their choice and talking about the movie afterwards. All in all, an inexpensive night out at home."
For those contemplating giving the Dinner and the Movie Club as a gift, Lemire adds that pasta is low in fat and sodium, has no cholesterol and was named by 47% of respondents in a recent poll as the one food they could not live without. The pasta sauces in the monthly Dinner and the Movie Club meal do not include meat, although it can be added as an option. One month the menu might consist of Lemon Pepper Rigatoni Twist pasta, Basil Garlic Marinara sauce and White Chocolate Swirl popcorn, while another month club members receive Rainbow Farfalle pasta, Vodka sauce and Cheddar Cheese popcorn.
Flying Noodle has won second place in Inc. MagazineÂs Small Business Web Awards contest and received accolades from Forbes.com, USA Today and PC Computing, among others.
