Check out our multi-sensory flavor pairings to complete your Sweetness tasting experience!
Spring is here, ready to bloom, and so should you be! The birds are singing, we can see flowers and trees starting to bud, you can even taste spring with our new Matcha flavor, and now you can listen to spring too! And we're introducing our film club pairings too, starting with the
1993 Much Ado About Nothing directed by Kenneth Branagh, and inspired by the Shakespearian comedy, "Much Ado About Noting" (~1600 C.E.).
May I introduce to you the one and only Sgt. Peppermint and their Quarantined Heart! On the strings with a deep raspberry flavor, the base sets the tone with a sweet natural vanilla, and a surprising yet so appropriate accent from the peppermint trumpet solo!
For our flavor pairings, try the mission-driven Torani
for a dark chocolate glaze, and TruWhip
for a natural or fully-vegan whipped cream topping when warm (no connection to those companies, we just enjoy them ourselves)! And for the over-21 crowd, we highly recommend a wintry mulled wine, or a non-alcoholic warm beverage of choice to provide the appropriate beverage pairing. Check out this simple Mulled Wine recipe
we've tried from Gimme Some Oven.
It's time we celebrate each other! Take a minute to recognize yourself for being a champ through it all and pass it along as we uplift and celebrate our differences and our oneness world-over. Let's share in the spirit of ubuntu, referenced as part of Zulu and Xhosa phrases meaning that a person is a person through other people, or more commonly referred to as "I am because you are," which at the core reflects on our shared humanity.
Introducing: Three Chias for You! Audio Experience.

Our first book pairing is here! Curl up with a cup of coffee and a few scoops of Café Noir! And of course, here's our auditory flavor pairing, embed for you to preview, or clickable to listen in full with a Tidal account. We only compile our curated playlists on Tidal because of the nearly 3x pay per stream rate to artists as compared to Spotify (an easy way to support our benefit goal of fair pay and economic growth), as well as the highest quality music that audiophiles like us adore:
Beverage Pairing - The subtle and soothing taste of a warm apple cider beverage perfectly balances the intensity of the autumnal spices in Pumpking Autumn.

The backstory: It's the end of a long day, exhausted, feeling the weight of humidity and the late summer sun radiating off the pavement. Despite long hours at work, and the 8th Zoom meeting of the day, Sweet still manages to go for a walk, imagining those long past treks in the mountains. Haggardly stepping inside, with shades still on from the setting sun, Sweet sees Sax there, ready for another music-making evening. The late-summer sun falls to the tune of the sweetest, tough-yet-tender Blues tunes...
