My personal favorite from Stuller’s top 5 blogs of 2017, this post became an instant classic! If you’ve ordered from Stuller before, you’ve likely encountered the surprise suckers added into each package. These Dum Dums have become a Stuller staple, a sugary signature to light your eyes and add sweetness to your day. And, if you’re a regular, you may have noticed that depending on the season – Mardi Gras, Valentine’s Day and the Holidays – we change up our sweet surprises. The reason for this? Well, we like to think of it as traditional southern hospitality—it’s the way our mommas raised us! Check out this playful post to uncover the true motive behind Stuller’s Dum Dums.
In this post, Stuller’s very own virtual designer David Bernard explains, “While my wife, Marisa, is not descended from any royal family, she is royalty’s greatest fangirl. She is enamored with all the glamor and mystery that royals represent. As I fell for Marisa, I was attracted to a certain grace and warmth to her presence. In my eyes, these qualities embody the royal ideal. So when I decided to propose, that was my task — to design a ring befitting someone who is royalty to me.”
Disney Princesses are special because of the stories they represent, but also because of their individual spirits.
