I want to thank you for the great Chocolate Drop Recipe. My three young children and I are eating no refined sugar for 30 days (I'll probably go longer) and I've been looking for some sweet treats we could make that use only Honey, fruit, or maple syrup as the sweetener. I've also been trying to figure out a way to get coconut oil in my kids. The drops are a hit! And they help me with my sweet cravings. We have some tree nut allergies so first I just used the oil, honey and cocoa. My pickiest child just loves them and told me she likes them better than "regular chocolate." She keeps asking me for them! I've experimented a little and just now I made a batch with half honey and half maple syrup and we really like the results. I have also made one batch using chunky peanut butter mixed in and those are my favorite. Even when we aren't doing a "sugar free" month I am going to keep those in my freezer as a healthy and very yummy sweet treat. Thanks for giving us such a great and healthy treat!

Sincerely,

Good evening. I have been drinking your Rise and Shine Tea almost every day since I received it. It's wonderful! I have NEVER had a tea that I liked that much. I've cut down on coffee, and have sent several bags to friends and family so they can try it and order their own.

Did You Know?

Daily sprinkling a little Cayenne powder on the toothpaste on your toothbrush can work miracles in fighting and preventing gum disease. That's right! It will also help deal with other oral ailments that plague many folks these days. After reading about this, we just had to try it. There is a warm sensation in your mouth as you brush your teeth, but it soon disappears after rinsing. As always, whenever using Cayenne powder, you should start with very small amounts to allow the body some time to build up a tolerance. The first few times we used it, we sprinkled so little of the powder on the toothpaste that we didn't feel anything. As the days progressed, we increased the amounts slightly until we felt it was warm enough. After using it for a little while, the nice feeling in your mouth is very satisfying. Be warned, however, that you do not want to overdo this one, so start small.
