Want to help get tasty gourmet tortillas made available at local markets like you’ve never tried before? Tasty Torts are a soon-to-be launched line of flavored tortillas, such as cinnamon, blueberry maple, chipotle, bacon and honey butter. These new tortillas will be the perfect taste sensation for breakfast burritos, quesadillas, tacos, homemade chips or just as snacks.
Local catering company, Rasta Taco is seeking funds through Kickstarter for Tasty Torts gourmet flavored tortillas using the freshest ingredients and savory flavors. Founder Mario Melendez is teaming up with the Murrieta family of El Metate in Santa Ana, a well-respected tortillaria for almost 30 years to assist in the manufacturing and distribution.
They are seeking just $5,000 through Kickstarter to finish the Tasty Torts website, and help fund the basic packaging, marketing materials, and the initial order. Ten locations have already offered confirmed pre-orders. You can help fund this Tasty Torts product launch and help get these delicious tortillas available to eat soon.
There isn’t a lot of time to wait on this project, the campaign ends in just 20 days.
You can also follow the progress of the launch at Tasty Tort's Facebook fan page.
With my "son" Jack in Kenya. With the help of friends, family and local businesses I'm putting Jack & Milly (his best friend and my "daughter") through college in Nairobi. They're finishing their third year now at Jomo Kenyatta University and Kenya Polytechnic University. If you can donate, even $5 to their educational fund, we will be so grateful.
Many thanks, from Jack, MIlly and me.
