tv   New Day Cleveland  FOX  November 4, 2016 10:00am-11:00am EDT

10:00 am
- welcome to new day cleveland, i'm david moss. - and i'm natalie herbick and that behind us right there is mr. black squirrel. - and where you find black squirrels, i think there's only one place nearby. - kent, ohio. change about kent, ohio, the black squirrels are always here but many things have changed and that's why we're here. - oh, absolutely, 'cause you've been here before to do a road show, but we are going to see things that you haven't seen before, right? - well, for sure, i just talked to a lady, she said she's a teacher here for 30 years, she retired, she went away, waited a couple years, she came back and didn't recognize the place, it's changed so much. - so many new stores and restaurants and things going on, a lot of revitalization happening here in downtown kent, really making for a great experience. if you have been here even six months ago,
10:01 am
- they spent 110 million dollars to fix the place up. let's check it out. (upbeat music) - so we're in kent and that of course, means we're in the fashion capital of ohio, i would at least think so, right robin? - yeah. - right next to the university here and we are at the fashion school store where only students work? - correct, so you have to be a student of the fashion school to work here. i, myself, am a fashion merchandising student. the other student that currently works here is also a fashion merchandising student. i'm a sophomore, she's a junior. everything here is also designed, constructed, the whole process is done by students, faculty and alumni of the school. - do you know what it took to put something like this together? - yeah, so this dress was actually a dress that was created by two of our faculty here at the school. the image is a collection of jewelry from both faculty and then they digital printed that and put it all together.
10:02 am
some of the different things that are done here. what is that look, i really like it, very casual yet really different and unique. - yeah, so we currently have a class here at the school where, it's a collaborative class, run by one of the faculty where students create and design and do the whole process to create looks for the store, so all of these garments were created at the school through this class. - very neat, so bags too? - like, accessories? - yeah. - i love that, okay and what about this look over here? i wanna put this one on. this is the one i wanted to wear first, then i switched it up a bit, 'cause i love this. - so the same for this. the skirt was created through the class, the shirt is a print design done by one of our faculty, barbara rhodes and the necklace is done by one of our alumni. she has a collection of jewelry here called amery. - okay, so let's move on over here. i love all of the print work. we have a live model to show you too.
10:03 am
as a collection here called my tattoo where she has designed everything she has on, as well as the shirts that we have printed. - what does it take to put something like this together? - i basically take my inspiration of time moving on and making decisions, so each print was designed by that inspiration. this one here, is just the decision of moving and sort of, always coming back to what you originally went to. also, this triangle design, which is just picking directions, things like that, and i take all my prints and mesh them together and sort of make them into a passage, which is what all of the lines represent. - so, if only we could have the designers come with us shopping, i think that's all the more reason to purchase some of these things, because you really get the story behind
10:04 am
and seeing this all come to life here, knowing that people's products are here for the world to see, really? - it's really cool because a lot of students, when they do design something, as they're walking down the streets on kent, they'll see someone actually wearing something that they've designed, and as a student, that's amazing to see someone went to a store and picked out something you've designed and they purchased that and it's just a crazy, real-life experience for the students. - so how often are things changing in here and how often are people finding new things to come in here and buy? through our class, through students that just want to have stuff in here. - well, it's great, obviously the students are so talented, i absolutely love what i have on and there's so many other great things in here for you to come and check out. gift for yourself, gift for the woman in your life. are there things for men too that they create? - we have bow ties, we have unisex t-shirts done by the director of our fashion school. - alright, so there's things for guys here too, so come check it out at the fashion school store
10:05 am
right next door. (upbeat music) - my favorite is the caramel corn with peanuts. - okay, we're poppin' at a place called popped!. i'm with gwen rosenberg, who's over here. what are you doing with this right here? - i'm just stirring my caramel. - you're stirring your caramel. - yeah, we do everything from scratch here in the shop and this is a recipe that started it. it's our signature caramel popcorn with sea salt and local butter. - somebody told me that you started this in your basement or something like that? i wanted to make a recipe for my family and friends. i love popcorn, so this was the recipe that i created and out of it, sort of bloomed the whole business. - you know, i'm a big movie guy, so i've eaten a lot of popcorn over the years. i was tasting your popcorn and your kernels are really big. is this like a special kind of popcorn or something? - well, it's special because it's locally grown. it's grown in ohio and it's certified non-gmo, that's the only kind of popcorn i use. - what's non-gmo? - it's non-genetically modified popcorn.
10:06 am
so, it's all grown in knox county, ohio from a family owned farm. all of our butter comes from a local dairy out in worcester, hartzler. yeah, we get as many local ingredients as we possibly can. - i notice you something on the scale over here, what's happening over here? - that's our brown sugar. we do everything from scratch. - i love me some brown sugar, look at that. - [gwen] yeah, everything's from scratch using my own recipes, i don't use any artificial colors or flavors, i really like to use like natural fruits or herbs or spices or extracts, so. - this is like one of those stay-at-home mom kind of stories where you dream up something and the next thing you know, you're not at home anymore. - a little bit, yeah, and luckily, thanks to all the redevelopment downtown, and so many different people working together, kent loves local businesses, so the time was right and now my husband and i work together. this is like a legitimate mom and pop business. we love it. - you guys actually get along then? - we get along great, yes, we do. - you have to get along. - we get the kids in here mopping the floor, everybody works. - how many kids do you have? - four, i've got four boys. - oh my goodness.
10:07 am
- 14, 12, 10 and six. - so you don't have to pay half of them? - [gwen] well, i pay them in product. they eat a lot of popcorn. - so let's see what you got here. what do they like the most? - okay, so our buttered popcorn, like i said, there's no artificial colors or flavors, so it's popped in non-gmo local popcorn and sea salt, we've got our kettle corn, which is vegan, i have a lot of different vegan recipes. our white cheddar cheese popcorn, our signature caramel popcorn with sea salt, our caramel with peanuts and all of the nuts in the shop are locally roasted as well. - [gwen] that's what we're making. this is the white cheddar. - [david] does that say banana? - [gwen] oh, we have an assortment of different chocolates that we make in the shop too. - [david] look at that. - [gwen] yeah, so it's the dark chocolate with banana. - you gotta watch it when you come to popped! because wherever your eyes look you might want to buy it, right? - [gwen] yeah. - and taste? - [gwen] absolutely, yes, i hope so. another really popular one we have is the firehouse caramel. that's got a little bit of cayenne, so it's got a sweet little kick to it at the end. - oh, this one? - [gwen] yeah, that one's a lot of fun. - [david] yeah, so it looks almost the same, but i guess you can tell them apart, huh?
10:08 am
boy, that is great and you said locally roasted peanuts, that means you guys roast the peanuts like-- - we don't roast them here specifically, but i get as many ingredients as i can locally, even down to our clear containers which are made right here in kent, ohio. - black squirrel crunch, i saw the black squirrel out there. - [gwen] absolutely, yeah, we got black squirrel crunch, we make our own peanut butter acorns. - [david] i shouldn't be afraid to eat the brown pieces then, huh? - those are good, yeah, that's our own toffee that we cover in milk chocolate. - i get a little worried about that with the squirrels around. so i see these big buckets too. so if people don't come all the way out to see you, which you should come to kent, so much fun to walk around. - [gwen] it's a lot of fun. - it's like a walking tour of this whole downtown area. - [gwen] it's a beautiful town, yes. - but if you can't, you can call popped! and you can ship them yourself, right? - absolutely, shoppopped.com is our website. - and i think especially because, you know, you were talking about you had a lot of vegan things and then you had stuff that were not genetically altered. - [gwen] yeah, none of our popcorn is genetically modified. - so, you can't buy that just anywhere, so you're the one. - i'm the one, we're locally owned, and we love this town. it's a beautiful, beautiful place to visit.
10:09 am
- okay, while she's stirring the caramel corn, i'm gonna find out which is the tastiest on the moss man meter. - that sounds good. - we're gonna go to break, but when we come back, natalie, she's down the street. she's playing around.

10:33 am
- i don't know how good those cookies are, but i gotta tell you what, this bent tree coffee is unbelievable, i guarantee it and i ain't messin' around. here's mike over here, so here's what i don't understand. the coffee's so good, but your beans are green, what's going on? - [mike] it's true, they're not roasted yet. - [david] well, how do you roast them? - what we do is we put them in this roaster right here and after about 15 minutes they come out as roasted coffee. - [david] well, put them in, let me see how everything works. - alright, let's do it. - [david] look at this, so, why don't people do this on every corner of the united states and they good coffee? - i don't know, they should be. people could be home roasting, but we do it here. ple don't realize that coffee doesn't come off the tree roasted. these are just the seeds from the coffee tree and what we do here is roast them. - [david] okay, so it's in the top hopper there, what's it do now? - what we do is, we open up this door here and it's gonna go inside this coffee roaster and there's a steel drum on the inside and it's gonna spin the beans around once it gets in there. - [david] okay, so you can do that now? - we can do it right now. - [david] let's rock it. - let's go. - [david] so why don't more people do this and what's the difference between different roasters and what's the whole deal on that? - it has a lot to do with quality.
10:34 am
and what we do is we try to get higher quality coffee and roast them here in smaller batches and get them to people a little quicker. - okay, so you get that coffee going in there, how long does it take to roast it? - it'll be about 15 minutes. - [david] it already smells great in here and i see you've got some stuff over here. now, these just the beans or do you grind it for people too? - [mike] these are whole bean, but we can grind them all right here in the shop. - [david] okay, so you've got peru, norte decaf, breakfast blend, espresso blend, what's the black squirrel blend? - that is, so it's very popular in kent, - [david] you don't put any squirrel stuff in there, do you? - no, not at all, there's no real squirrels, in fact. - a little worried about that (laughs). - no, that ones-- - it's a nutty flavor (laughs). - that one is one of our most popular coffees. we sell it to kent state university a lot, we kind of developed it with them and just being the black squirrel blend is popular down here. - peanut butter and jelly, what's that about? - we don't have any flavored coffees here. that one, we had three coffees and we figured out at some point that one had kind of a fruity taste,
10:35 am
and you have peanut butter and jelly. - so, that's your blend. hey, so i see coffee shops all over the place in kent, do all the guys buy their coffee from you here? - they do, exactly. what we do is we sell coffee out of the store here, but we also distribute to different places around town and we do some grocery stores, mainly, the biggest account that we have is heinan's all over northeast ohio. - [david] oh, so i can find you at heinan's. - [mike] yeah, exactly. - [david] so, who's this guy and what's he doing? - hey, i'm ryan, i'm doing a pour over brew, one of the benefits for brewing coffee what you do is, you just take your fresh ground coffee, put it right here in our little pour over bario brewer and gonna apply some nice hot water and watch that coffee bloom up. - [david] it's like mini-drip. - [ryan] yeah, exactly, this mini-drip will brew up a nice delicious cup in just about two to three minutes. - like your coffee, and i know all coffees are different, but i gotta tell you, this coffee has such a great, distinct, deep flavor. - thank you. - thank you very much. - how many tablespoons of coffee do you use per cup of water for something like this? - so, we weigh everything here,
10:36 am
- so, it's scientific, eh? - we get a little scientific, yeah. - you should see me scientific in the morning, one eye's open and i'm praying for it to be done.
