Tortuga Rum Cakes sells the most items in an hour on HSN

Tortuga Rum Cakes was featured on HSN, the television shopping network, last week on its “Holiday Treats & Entertaining” segment with host Alyce Caron.

During the show's one hour air time,  the brand sold the most items compared to other food items.

“We are thrilled to have our delicious Caribbean rum cakes promoted to the vast HSN audience,” said Monique Hamaty-Simmonds,  director of brand development for Tortuga International and the daughter of the founder of the Tortuga Rum Company.

“HSN offers an excellent opportunity to showcase our Tortuga brand. In fact, this is the third time on the shopping network ahead of the holiday gift giving season and on Tuesday we featured  our 6-pack rum cake collection.  And when Alyce declared on air that Tortuga was her very favourite brand of rum cake that was a huge endorsement for our product,” said Monique.

During the show, a number of HSN customers tweeted about the product:

“I love to bake. Since I found these lil jewels I will not bake this year. These are awesome”, said one.

Another Tortuga rum cake customer wrote:  “I went on a cruise to where these were made. It was so much fun to be able to get them.”

A third HSN viewer said:  “I ordered these and went to heaven, so ordered more for gifts.”
