Parsnip In Real Life: Our First Party!

Meeting people in real life seems to be such a scary thing these days, right? If you’ve been talking to someone via the comfort and safety of an app, text, or email, you just never know what that person is going to be like in real life, whether it’s during a meeting, party, or date. It can be nerve-wracking, scary, awkward, sweat-inducing, heart-pumping, you name it.


But with Parsnip, when you meet our community in real life you can trust you’ll feel right at home. The more the merrier when it comes to making sweet connections!

Last week, we hosted a lil’ Bay Area shindig for our new users to say thank you for signing up for our Beta. It was a great chance to meet our users in real life and our users got to meet each other and even make in real life connections!


We had snacks, drinks, and samples from users Cult Crackers, Kuju Coffee, Miyoko’s, St. Michel, The Yes Bar, Health Ade Kombucha, Bare Snacks, Foodstirs, Lantana Foods, GT’s Living Foods, House Kombucha, MatchaBar, Foot of the Bed Cellars, REBBL, and Igzu Bamboo Leaf Tea.


And party-goers included some of the above plus more brands, bloggers, influencers, content creators, and agencies including Sudden Coffee, Territory, Julia O Test Creative, Kitchentown, The Saucery, Yours Truly Ani, LARKIN, and Leona Marlene Creative.


After the last few months, we have a lot to be thankful for including the nearly 250 of you who have signed up for our Beta with new users signing up every week! We’ve also made over 80 matches and we can’t wait to create more connections as we head into the fall. Speaking of fall, we’re not going to be mad if any of you have some pumpkin-flavored snacks you want to send us.

Look out for more party invitations from us in the future because we certainly look forward to meeting more of you in real life. We promise it won’t be awkward.

In the meantime, follow us on Instagram to keep up with what we’re doing in real life on the daily.
