Cocoa from the Roots: An Origin Story

Cocoa from the Roots: An Origin Story

Like a good wine, the flavors of the earth and other plants growing close to the cocoa plant influence and add to the flavors of the chocolate.  This fact gives a whole new perspective on the benefits of diverse farming methods and how we, as consumers of chocolate, need to consider the land and it’s richness and the biodiversity of our cacao growing regions.

Maple Syrup shown to eliminate Sugar Spike

Nutty Steph's Vermont Granola is fresh baked and always jam-packed with whole almonds, walnuts and hazelnuts. You will go Nutty for it! Sweetened with only pure Vermont maple syrup, it is filled with flavor yet not too sweet, and, because maple metabolizes more slowly in the body, you don't get a sugar spike... And neither do the kids. Kids love this granola, which makes it an excellent way to delight them while feeding them protein, oats, sunflower seeds and nuts.
