Irvine, CA (PRWEB) December 02, 2011
Leaf Brands, LLC will be featured in an upcoming TV show called, "Career Day," a nationally-syndicated TV show from Entertainment Studios, Inc. that inspires viewers, young and old, but mainly teens, to pursue the career of their dreams.
“Career Day” is nationally-syndicated on most Tribune and Sinclair Stations and produced by Executive Producer Lisa-Renee Ramirez, winner of 16 Emmys, and Associate Producer Leslie Gant. The half-hour TV series explores a variety of interesting careers - some traditional and some outside the box, in each episode. “Career Day” could explore what it takes to become a fashion designer, a brain surgeon, a marine biologist, and maybe even a racecar driver. Most recent episodes showcased a video game producer and two comedic jugglers.
Episodes are highly entertaining and do the best to capture a "day in the life" of the person's career. In the upcoming episode, members of Leaf Brands™ will meet with candy distributors, packaging manufacturers, and attend gifting suites and Hollywood events to promote the company’s products, which include Astro Pops®, Farts candy™, and David’s Signature Beyond Gourmet™ Jelly Beans.
The premise of the show is to showcase the team behind Leaf Brands, LLC in their day-to-day quest to rebuild their family candy company which was one of the most notable candy companies in the US, until it was sold to Hershey back in 1996. The original Leaf Brands, made well-known candy as Whoppers® and Jolly Rancher® at the time of the sale.
“I love that ‘Career Day’ showcases all kinds of people and careers. It shows kids if you have drive and ambition, you can make your business dreams come true,” says Leaf Brands CEO Ellia Kassoff. Part of the team includes David Klein who is the original inventor of Jelly Belly® jelly beans, and is launching David’s Signature Beyond Gourmet Jelly Beans™ with Leaf Brands, LLC. “We really believe in Career Day’s mantra that ‘it’s never too early or too late to follow your dreams,” Kassoff added.
Klein’s recently released award-winning documentary about his life, “Candyman: The David Klein Story,” has garnered a lot of attention. Press about his new ‘Beyond Gourmet” signature line of jelly beans, which he is creating with Leaf Brands, LLC has gone worldwide including the front page of The Los Angeles Times, titled: “Jelly Belly creator sour over lost legacy but sees sweet future,” as well as the Seattle Times, Huffington Post, New York Daily News, KFI News Radio (30 Minute segment during morning drive time) and Time Magazine on-line.
