Q: What are the Sugar Substitutes used in your fudge and brittle products?

A: The primary sugar substitute used in our fudge and brittle products is Maltitol.  Maltitol falls into the category of a sugar-alcohol.  It is neither sugar, nor is it alcohol, and it is FDA approved for use in foods and drinks.  As Maltitol, in its natural state, has only 75% the sweetness of sugar, we add Splenda, an FDA approved artificial sweetener, to the recipe to boost the sweetness level to that of regular sugar.

Q: Are there any side effects to using sugar substitutes and artificial sweeteners?

A: According to the FDA, there are no side effects to artificial sweeteners.  Most sugar alcohols, including Maltitol, may have a laxative effect if consumed in large quantities.  We recommend that you don't consume an entire pound of fudge or brittle in one day.

Q: Do any of your products promote tooth decay?

A: No sugar alcohol or artificial sweetener has been shown to promote any form of tooth decay.

Q: I've ordered a particular flavor of Cocoa or Fudge in the past and don't see it on the website now? Is it discontinued?

A: We have dozens of flavors for all of our products (except Brittle, which has five) that are not on the website.  If your favorite isn't available now, it may be that it is a seasonal product and will be returning at the proper time of year. You can request a flavor not currently on the website through our Contact Page and we will do our best to accommodate an order.  Please put REQUEST in the subject line.

Q: I have an idea for a Cocoa or Fudge flavor.  How do I let you know about it?

A: Chances are that we already have the flavor you would like, it just isn't on the website at this time.  But we are always looking for new ideas.  Use our Contact Page to let us know your suggestion and we will see what we can come up with.  Please put SUGGESTION in the subject line. Who knows, if it works, we might even name it after you.

Q: I am a Retailer and would like to carry some of your products.  Do you offer wholesale pricing?

A: Yes, we do based on the size of the order.  Use our Contact Page and put RETAILER in the subject line and give us your contact information (name, email and phone number).  One of our representatives will get back to you as quickly as possible.

Q: Are any of your products available with sugar, for non-diabetic customers?

A: Yes. All of the Cocoa, Crèmes and Coffees are available in sugar variations.
