Ashley Thompson and Katherine Thomas want a Shark to bite on Mush, their convenient twist on a breakfast favorite, in episode 909. The pair created their on-the-go oatmeal snack while working at the same finance firm. They both shared a love for healthy food and a longing to be entrepreneurs. When they created their “cold processed” oatmeal, they left it free of added sugar, artificial flavors & colors, fillers and preservatives.
One thing the two women longed for was a quick, healthy, breakfast/snack. They began experimenting with cold-soaked oats. They utilize pressure to preserve their product, so it's completely natural. Initially, the sold the product at farmer's markets in the San Diego area, but quickly got on the shelves at Whole Foods.
Mush comes in four flavors: vanilla bean, wild blueberry, apple crisp and dark cacao. On the website, 8-packs of eight ounce tubs of Mush cost $39.99 or five bucks per serving. In Whole Foods, an 8 ounce package costs $3.99 and they're discounted at times to as low as 2 packs for $5. The Mush ladies likely want to expand their retail distribution.
Will a Shark want to eat Mush?
