To know Alexandra Rae Molumby is to adore her. Rae’s passion, perseverance, and hunger to learn and grow is a way of life we admire here at The Snack and one we elevate any chance we get. Since joining Country Sweet Produce and its Bako Sweet® brand back in 2020, Rae has helped to evolve, sharpen, and refine the Bako Sweet aesthetic while creating a coveted connective tissue between the team, buy-side operators, and consumers with marketing prowess. With such feats already under her belt, we can only dream of what she will do next. In the meantime, we thought we would get a little personal (as we like to do) and see what would happen IF we asked her a few curious questions of our own…
IF you could have been born in another century or decade, which would it be and why?
The 1920s, so I could experience the 1940s. My grandma and grandpa met and fought during WWII. Afterward, they were in the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency). They would tell us about their romantic love story and the war.
IF you could be a character in any book, who would it be?
Anne in Anne of Green Gables.
IF you could have any actor play you in a movie, who would you want?
Meg Ryan, from the movie You’ve Got Mail. I think she acts a lot like me in that movie, plus my husband and I met online.
IF you could imagine yourself in a different industry, what would it be?
Something to do with horses. I grew up horseback riding, and now I ride every day on my cute little Quarter Horse, Maple. We just started showing in Ranch Riding this year, and it has been really rewarding to see all of our hard work pay off.
IF you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
IF you were another species in the animal kingdom, what would you be?
A dolphin. I love to swim in the ocean, and they live in pods, so I would always be surrounded by friends and family!
IF you wrote an autobiography, what would be the title?
Harvest Joy—it’s also the name of my Instagram handle.
IF you could make everyone watch a movie of your choosing, which movie would you want them to see?
IF you could re-experience an awesome day in your life, what day would you choose and why?
The day my husband, Erik, proposed. It is an amazing story, so please ask me about it for more details.
IF you had a superpower, what would you want it to be?
To talk to animals.
IF you had to choose one song to be the soundtrack of your year, what would it be?
“Long Live Cowgirls” by Ian Munsick and Cody Johnson.
IF you could give your younger self one piece of advice, what would it be?
Don’t worry about being perfect, and don’t worry about being liked. It’s okay to be different because that’s what makes people so special. Each person has a gift or a talent, and you can bless others by being yourself.
