New Chocolate Covered Cherries Recipe

We’re excited to be releasing a new recipe for our Chocolate Covered Cherries in the Meltaways section on our website!

The new recipe was a “happy accident” when Lydia reached for the wrong flavor when making a batch of our Black Raspberry Chocolate Bars. She mistakenly mixed in an organic cherry flavor extract we had tested some time ago but never incorporated into any of our recipes. With all of the chocolate mixed, she needed something to use it for, so she made a test batch of Chocolate Covered Cherries. The result was delicious! In fact so good that people who tried it said they would buy the whole batch!

We have always listened closely to our customers, so in hopes of pleasing everyone (as much as we can), we’re releasing the new “more cherry flavor” recipe as a separate listing on our website. You can still buy the original recipe if you like that better, and feel free to request a sample of the new cherry flavor with your next order so you can decide on your favorite (just write in the order notes).
Everyone wins, and the prize is yummy indeed 🙂

A couple of reviews from Courtney

Pure LOVE!

I am so satisfied with this chocolate! Given the high-quality almonds as well as the antioxidants from the natural chocolate, I honestly feel healthy after eating this chocolate.

Truly Original (Reviewing our mmm…Mint chocolate bar)

This chocolate is to be savored! It reminds me of Saint Patrick’s Day and makes me so happy. Remember that these are natural chocolates – even more pure than most of the chocolate from organic stores where you’ll still find soy- and sugar-based ingredients (I completely adore Whole Foods, but this is a major issue I find myself up against when shopping there). If it tastes bitter to you, you might not be used to completely natural chocolate. Try it with a warm cup of tea, let it melt in your mouth, and give it a few tries! I will 100% be purchasing this chocolate again.

Thanks for the great reviews, Courtney! 🙂 Your tips are also very helpful to folks trying the chocolate for their first time.

Feedback from a customer: Leo

We received a very sweet review the other day and we wanted to post it here:

“So much to say about this great company making these awesome treats. In a land where the ingredients in foods are a mile long and you get frustrated by seeing that everything has sugar in it. This stuff you can trust to be the opposite and still taste so good. The name of the company says it all.”

— Leo😍

Thanks Leo for the wonderful words. We are lucky to have thoughtful and supportive customers!

Sugar with spoon

Why we crave candy and sweets

Over at Organic Authority there’s a good quick article about the 4 most common reasons we crave sweets.

They break it down like so:

  1. Sugar is a drug (yep no surprise here!)
  2. Not getting enough protein in our diets (easy to fix)
  3. Used up all our willpower for the day (not so easy to fix!)
  4. Sweets and candy remind us of happy times (pretty easy to change associations over time and reprogram your mind)

We hope that the chocolate we make provides a good candy/sweets alternative for you, and that it can assist in making good choices on a daily basis about how much sugar you’re consuming.

Customer letter from Courtney

We really enjoy getting notes from customers! Here’s one we received the other day:

“Hello! I just wanted to say thank you so very much – your business was incredibly professional with every step of my order, from the ordering process to shipping and delivery to communications all throughout. The chocolate arrived in perfect condition and was wrapped beautifully. There was even a handwritten thank you note on the order confirmation page – so nice. I tried pieces from all three chocolate bars I ordered, and they are each simply AMAZING! I cannot thank you enough for the high-quality chocolate and the natural product you provide. It means the world to people like me who want to enjoy chocolate while addressing specific health issues.

I will be back!”
