11/11/2017 is Singles Day, the day you can show the world that you are proud to be the one and only ruler over your king-sized bed. All day, every day.
Singles’ day originates from China, when in the 1990’s a bunch of single students came together to celebrate their singleness on 11.11. Because of all the ones, get it? (Although that date would also suit a holiday for people with a quadruple polyamorous relationship.) They came up with Singles’ Day so you have a day to enjoy that you are single, because you deserve it. Being single can be a serious pain in the ass since people will come up to you saying stuff like:
“Being lonely sounds pretty boring.”
“A colleague of mine is single as well, do you want me to set you up?”
“I think you are just too picky you know.”
“The plumber of the sister of the pastor of my gynaecologists Labradoodle is single as well, do you want me to set you up?”
As you can understand:...
Since we love to change things up and have fun with our products, we invited vegan visual artist and food stylist Ken Hoffman to show us how to get more out of our Plenny Shake Pumpkin Spice. And because we’re all about keeping it fun and simple, these recipes are super duper easy. Even our dog could make them. If we had a dog.
Check out these three vegan recipes from Ken. Which one are you going to try first?
Fluffy Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Cookies
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup Plenny Shake Pumpkin Spice
3/4 cup of plant-based milk (soy, rice, almond)

1 tsp vanilla sugar
A pinch of salt
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

For many people not living in Burundi, continuously stuffing their face with food comes as naturally as walking. Or breathing. Or both. However, there’s also a large group, myself included, that has difficulty eating consistently enough to actually gain weight.
Why for god’s sake would you want to gain weight when losing weight is the trend of the 21st century?
There are lots of different reasons, but none of them are relevant, really. If someone has the ambition to gain weight, it’s our job as coach or instructor to help that person achieve this goal without negatively affecting their physical activities, lifestyle or their overall health. I don’t like to throw around terms like “very much” or “very little” because there’s hardly anything as subjective or individual as food and nourishment. Instead, I rather use terms like ‘enough’ as in:...
The opinions of fictional friends are important too
Hooray! Jimmy Joy has been reviewed 10.000 times. And hooray! 4,5 stars means that, on average, you guys really like us. Our fictional friends were also kind enough to give their opinion on our product. More than 50 reviews were given by them. From Mufasa to Spiderman, they've all tried our nutritionally complete food. Some of them were more enthusiastic than others.
Here are some of our favorites:

Are you curious AF? Got excellent taste buds? Have so much spare time because of using our products you have time left to help us out? Then we hereby invite you to join our new project: the Jimmy Joy test club.
So, our new food technologist isn’t only a star in acting all crazy at the office, he’s also really good in what he’s actually getting paid for: developing new flavours. We love the experiments he made us drink, but we feel like there’s one opinion that’s probably most important we haven’t heard yet, and that’s yours, of course. Because we’d love to hear if our new flavours resemble being kissed gently by kittens or are rather similar to acid combined with a hint of expired yoghurt, we decided we need you guys to try them out for us.
Here’s the deal: we send you a box with some of our tasty new mixes every one or two months (including some goodies!). In return we ask you to do a little taste-test and report back, along...
New year. New Goals. New Name.
This past year we had a lot of fun and overcame a lot of obstacles. Instead of trying to sell as much as possible, we focused on product quality and operational excellence. For example: to cater all of our customers in 86 countries across 5 continents who order a meal of Jimmy Joy every 12 seconds, we upscaled the capacity of our inhouse production to over 5.500 bags daily (up from 1.200 at the beginning of 2016).
Also, thanks to the ideas of our beloved fulfillment guys and girl (yes, the people who draw on your orders when requested), we changed the fulfillment process which made it much more efficient. We can now send out orders on the same day they are placed all the way up to 2pm in the afternoon. We even reached this goal on our record day, Black Friday (in which we doubled our last record day, the launch of the Twennybar, and sold more than 40.000 meals. Wuuuut!?).
Breaking the News
Ok, everyone hold onto their knickers. We’re going to...
Jimmy Joy is here to help you reach great heights.
Human life is way too short to waste time on meaningless achievements. We’re meant to reign supreme. To reach far away galaxies, climb soaring mountains, rank high in online Call of Duty rankings and, most of all, set world records for doing dumb stuff. While that may seem impossible at first, it’s do-able. If you know the tricks, that is. Here’s a Jimmy Joy guide to setting weird World Records the easy way.
Pick an easy target
Look, you’re not gonna hop around the world on one leg just to make a point. Let’s just keep it easy, alright? Better yet, keep it extremely easy. Look up all the World Records that have been set to this day and pick one that can be beaten. Just google ‘easy world records to break’. For now, let’s just assume you’re going to set a world record eating the planet’s largest amount of Plenny Shake–which we discourage strongly–for fun’s...
So you’re switching things up a bit in 2017? Great plan, you’re worth it. New Year’s resolutions make up the easy first step to becoming a better person. Now, actually doing it is where it gets hard.* How can a life loving individual eat healthier, spend less money, sport harder and be a nicer person all at the same damn time? Seems impossible. Unless, of course, you use Jimmy Joy to help you.
Healthy eating is like responsible skating. It can be done, but it will definitely get boring fast. To avoid that pour some Plenny Shake into your mouth and BOOM, you’re fed. If you play your cards right, you won’t have to eat ever again. We advice against that though, since most unhealthy food tastes awesome.
Work out more
Staying in shape is the hardest thing mankind has been trying to do since reaching the moon. Luckily, some 30 years after we set foot on luna Jimmy Joy introduced a Sport edition making it possible for the human race to stay...
2016 has been another crazy year for us. The third one in a row, to be exact. We delivered a huge amount of Jimmy Joy all around the planet and by doing so, we did our fair share of spreading joy to the world. To give you an impression, we’ve gathered the most mind boggling stats about last year. This was our 2016 in a bunch of numbers:
13612 emails were sent by our customer service this year. They were kind of shocked when they saw that number.
85 different countries received Jimmy Joy this year. That’s about 43% of the total amount of countries in the world!
15500 kilometers (9630 miles) to French Polynesia was our farthest shipment to date. For fun, check out this map:
1250 games of ping pong have been played in our office. Data on who won the most games is skewed.
10 on a scale of 10! That’s what we give you guys and girls because we love you whatever year it is.
Have a great 2017!
