Today I’d like to introduce you to Blackwell’s Organic! They make delicious gelatos and sorbettos that are “Better for your body, your soul and the planet ®”.
About the Company:
Founded in 2005 by Marcia & Tom Blackwell. Tom is lactose intolerant and had been making these recipes at home for several years. Neither was happy with the non-dairy desserts on the market. They both wanted to create a product and a company that was a reflection of their personal values and their lifestyle. They live in a 100% solar powered home, organic garden and drive a Prius.
The “Blackwell’s Organic” Difference:
Delicious flavors: A deep dark bittersweet chocolate gelato that is to die for. A strawberry sorbet that tastes like strawberries fresh from the field. They are all so incredibly delicious, you won’t even know they are better for you!
USDA Certified Organic and Star-K Kosher Certified: Their products are 100% Organic and Kosher– dairy-free, preservative free, gluten free and vegan. Nothing artificial! They are the perfect indulgence for the educated and health conscious consumer who is craving a delicious dessert that meets their health and dietary needs.
Traditional Italian Dairy gelato is made with cow’s milk and contains less butterfat than traditional American ice cream. Gelato is usually at 2-4% butterfat and American style ice creams 10% to 18%. Blackwell’s Organic is made with soy milk which is cholesterol free and has much less fat than even traditional gelato. Only 2- 6 grams of fat per ½ cup serving.
Certified Fair Trade: Blackwell’s Organic is the only frozen dessert company that has FairTrade certified ingredients in every flavor. A Fair Trade Certified label on a product ensures consumers that a fair price was paid for the product, fair wages were paid to the workers producing the item, monies were invested in the communities in which the product was produced for vital projects such as schools and health clinics, and that the goods were produced in a sustainable manner; protecting both the workers and the environment.
Where to purchase: at Whole Foods in NY, NJ, PA, CT, KY, MD, OH, VA and Washington DC or via mail order at www.gelatobymail.com
