Looping Around LesserEvil: Summer Must-Haves

Looping Around LesserEvil: Summer Must-Haves

You’ve always been part of our snacking circle, but now we’re getting you even closer with our new series, Looping Around LesserEvil! We’re going around all of our departments and asking our employees the scoop on all their favorite topics, starting with summer must-haves! 

“I love a good suspense novel to read at the beach. If I’m not taking a midday nap (another summer favorite of mine), I’m reading a page-turning book. One of my favorite authors is Nelson DeMille. His book The Gold Coast is easily one of my go-to’s!” -Charles, CEO and President

“One of my favorite things to do with my children is filling up our inflatable pool and splashing around on a hot summer day! But this is no ordinary inflatable pool. It’s part sprinkler, too. Plus, the colors are bright and modern, which we love.” -Caitlin, Director, Digital + Brand Marketing

“Refreshing summer cocktails are the best, and one of my favorite ways to elevate a good drink is with Pink Whitney New Amsterdam. There’s a lot you can do with it, but my go-to is a strawberry lemonade cocktail. It's so delicious!“ -Nick, Designer

“The best thing about summer, to me, is taking my family to Hammonasset Beach. We absolutely love it. It’s close to home, which is nice, but there’s also something very peaceful about this beach that we gravitate toward. We like to go during the week to avoid the crowds.” -Chris, Product Development and Compliance Manager

“Hear me out on this: reusable water balloons. Yes, they exist, and I can’t throw a summer bash without them. My niece and nephew go crazy over them. When these are in play, we always have a great time.” -Jess, Human Resources Manager

“I can’t go a summer without going to Stew Leonard’s hoedown, which happens everyday from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM. They have great BBQ and a fun petting zoo, too! The kids love it, and we always have a great time." -Ashley, Warehouse Logistics Coordinator

“We live in an amazing state with a lot of history - especially as it relates to amusement parks! I can’t go a summer without hitting up Quassy or Lake Compounce with the family.” -Jeremy, Loader

“It’s all about the lobster rolls for me (hot, not cold!), and the best ones, in my opinion, can be found at The Lobster Trap in Cape Cod. The restaurant is right on the water with absolutely amazing views, but truly, their lobster roll is hands down the best.” -Marcus, VP of Operations

“Sure, the beach is great. But I personally can’t go a weekend, let alone a whole summer, without getting on the boat and cruising around Candlewood Lake. I always have a good time whether I’m riding solo or with friends.” -Dan, Operations Manager

“I love a good, refreshing kombucha that has killer flavor. Health-Ade’s Mint Limeade is absolutely amazing, and if you’re a fan of mojitos, then I would highly recommend this drink!” -AnnaLee, Sales Marketing Specialist

“SPF is super important throughout the year but especially during the summer, and my favorite products for SPF are the Sun Bum face stick and the face spray. I love the smell and the spray comes in handy when I have makeup on.” -Halaina, AP Specialist

“My summer must-have is the Trader Joe’s Coconut Cold Brew Concentrate. It’s truly summer in a bottle, and it’s exactly what I need to motivate me to push through a hot day!” -Natalie, Product Development and Compliance Coordinator

“Every summer, my family and I go to Acadia National Park. It’s the best place to clear our minds and enjoy nature. The views from the top are amazing. The Precipice Trail is one of my favorites!” -Amanda, R&D and QA Specialist
