We were recently sent some of their products to try out and I have to say, I am impressed! We received two types of coffees, hot cocoa mix, and chocolates! I’m trying to stay away from the coffee while pregnant, but hubby tried the coffees and said that he wished they were a bit stronger. We did receive the light roast and he’s used to a stronger coffee. The cocoa was great in that it wasn’t overly sweet like many “hot chocolates” are. I love the cocoa taste while being warmed and not overdoing the sweet! The organic coffees and cocoa are definitely something I would not only feel good about giving as gifts, but they are also items I’d like to receive!

The. chocolates. are. amazing. Need I say more? This preggo mama who often craves chocolate has been in heaven! We were sent their organic chocolate holiday minis which come in dark chocolate and milk chocolate with a hint of hazelnut. I have had the hardest time not eating the entire box in one sitting. I am trying to control my urge and eat just a few pieces a day. 😉
