“So what’s hiding behind the parcel safety funny quote sticker, I notice there’s some words hiding behind it.”
Ahhhh, very attentive of you to notice something so small near the bottom of the box. The full sentence is actually:
“WARNING! MAY CONTAIN AWESOMENESS!
The warning part is just our usually cheeky self, but the most important one is actually the hashtag #WeAreWhereWeAreBecauseOfYou. Not much people know is we actually started with almost nothing, and we really mean NOTHING.
With less than a week funds for food, our founders at the age of 19 (Joseph) and 17 (Debbie) started out by working many odd jobs from insurance agent to freelance magician for kids party to selling toys to save money for what is known to be called Jobbie Nut Butter today.
No knowledge, no experience, no money, no connection, it’s a miracle to say we survived this till today and it’s all thanks to YOU…who supported us by buying our handmade 100% all natural peanut butter.
Symbolic meaning of sticking the parcel safety sticker on top of the gratitude hashtag is to remind us to eternally at heart to always be grateful for all the help we received along our nutty adventure at Jobbie!
What is that Egyptian/Mayan hieroglyphic behind the Jobbie box
Don’t worry, we’re not from the illuminati. The hieroglyphics are actually an origin story of our journey dated back from 2014 – to the present day of 2020 (we will update the hieroglyphs every year as we pass a new year). This serves as a way to share our journey with you, hoping you’ll jump aboard to join this unknown but exciting voyage ahead along with all of us.

But what about the Jobbie box quality, has it changed?
Yes, we understand “inner beauty” is as important as a hansemmm first impression outer look. In simple terms, the materials are upgraded to a more safe food grade material that will not release any harmful gases even in extreme heat.
Moreover, we have added an extra layer of inner bracing to withstand more impacts and abuses. You know LaH…just in case abang pos had a bad day at work and want to take it out on your box of order? (just joking, no disrespect to any hardworking deliveryman)
It’s only a box to store peanut butter, why go through such length to upgrade it?
Here at Jobbie we believe a good product does not only need to taste good but it will be embedded with a beautiful memory along with it. The excitement from placing your first ever order on our website, to unboxing your newly arrive peanut butter via post and lastly savoring the nut butter in slow-mo!
Hence, even to the slightest of details as the box that stores your lovely peanut butter at great effort are consistently made sure its sturdiness, aesthetics and functionalities are improved and upgraded along the way!
Heck, it once even helped our CEO survive a car crashing unto him inside a parking lot while he was walking, minding his own nutty business, no joke!
To sum all these up
All these improvements are made for you, to make sure you receive your peanut butter safely, providing you “with more face(pride)” when you proudly give it out as a gift to your friends, maybe just maybe even help you get that promotion or year end bonus when you give it to your bosses muahahahahha!
The effort will be worthwhile,
If we manage to see your beautiful smile,
like an innocent child,
falling in love with our style,
so you’d throw other brands 10,000 miles,
in the wild! (Hope you like our freestyle!)
