Our customers have grown to love our delicious sauces, jams, and spices, and our Chocolatey Sauce is no different. Everyone has a sweet tooth (you’re lying if you say you don’t) and our sauce is perfect to turn any food into a delightful treat. Plus, we’re not exclusive, it’s gluten and dairy free so everyone can enjoy our heavenly sauce. The main reason the Chocolatey Sauce came to fruition was to combat my blood sugar levels.
I was pregnant with my twins, Thomas and Hunter, when I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. Gestational diabetes is a condition in which your blood sugar levels become high during pregnancy. I blew off the diagnosis and thought that once I gave birth, it would go away like most cases. Unfortunately for me, my diagnosis didn’t go away after the twins were born.
I finally took my diagnosis seriously after I was put on medication to manage my sugar levels. I knew I had to take control of my situation to live a long and healthy life. Before long, I realized my spikes in sugar were closely related to my food intake. The biggest culprit of all was corn syrup. Once I figured that out, I thought it would be easy, I could simply minimize the amount of corn syrup in my diet.
I would comb through the shelves at the grocery store searching for foods that did not contain corn syrup. Food manufacturers mainly use corn syrup as a sweetener because it isn’t very expensive, and allows the food to have a good consistency and texture- but it’s very unhealthy for you. One of the hardest foods to find without corn syrup was chocolate sauce, something my kids loved.
I knew that if it wasn’t good enough for me, then it wasn’t good enough for my kids, so I started testing recipes in my kitchen. Soon enough, I created the perfect recipe. This recipe reminded me of my childhood, like I was licking the brownie batter of the bowl. It was rich, flavorful, and had great ingredients.
And so the Decadent Chocolatey Sauce was created!
I began sharing my creation with friends and family, and they absolutely loved it! They were always asking for more. It gave me the validation that I could create alternative recipes for foods and take my health into my own hands.
When you take note of what you’re putting into your body, and focus on eating healthier, you will have more energy so that you can be more active, have stronger mental health, maintain your immune system, reduce the risk of chronic diseases, and you can even have increased focus. This all adds up to living a healthier, happier life.
Now, as I run my company, I always focus on creating high quality products without sacrificing taste. The Decadent Chocolatey Sauce is made without gluten and dairy as the only ingredients are cocoa powder, vanilla, sea salt, canola oil and water. We hope you enjoy it just as much as we do!
