    Frequently Asked Questions

    What does "organic" mean on Sunspire products?
    Organic means that all the ingredients are grown, harvested, produced and packaged without chemicals. Sunspire has a dedicated line of organic confections as well as organic chocolate baking chips. SunSpire products are third-party certified organic by QAI. (Quality Assurance International).

    Are Sunspire products certified Kosher?
    Yes. SunSpire products are certified Kosher by the Orthodox Union, the most widely recognized Kosher certification in the world. This certifies that every ingredient has been inspected and/or approved by a qualified Rabbi from the Orthodox Union. SunSpire products carry the OU-D symbol. As our dairy-free ingredient products are made on equipment that makes dairy ingredient products, the Orthodox Union certifies our products as OU-D.

    Is Sunspire Chocolate "fair trade" certified?
    SunSpire organic cocoa is grown in Central America and parts of South America. It is purchased at premium prices and produced to standards that map very closely to globally defined fair trade practices. Many of the growers who supply SunSpire with organic cocoa are members of fair trade coalitions within their own countries. SunSpire supports the principles of fair trade; however, SunSpire products do not have fair trade certification. SunSpire's conventionally grown cocoa comes from all three major cocoa growing regions: Latin America, Africa, and Southeast Asia. SunSpire works closely with our chocolate suppliers and stand by their statements that the cocoa in SunSpire products is being produced under fair labor conditions. Further, as members of the World Cocoa Foundation, SunSpire has extended their work to directly support the well-being and livelihood of cocoa growers worldwide.

    How is chocolate made?
    Raw cocoa beans are dried and roasted, then they are cracked, and the "nibs" (the center of the cocoa bean) are ground. Using a hydraulic press, the cocoa butter is extracted, leaving a dense, rich, and bitter substance called chocolate liquor. Despite the name, this substance does not contain any alcohol. After drying, the chocolate liquor is ground into powder form. This is unsweetened chocolate joining her family's successful chocolate business. As she began her quest to develop all natural recipes, Jennings also discovered ways to innovate many of her family's classic ones. She researched nutritive sweeteners and worked on crafting the best-tasting and purest natural candies. As a result, Sunspire pioneered the natural chocolate category, setting the taste and quality standard for natural chocolates and confections - a standard that has never been met by another company.

    Do their products contain caffeine?
    They do not measure the caffeine in their Sunspire and Dream products.

    Do SunSpire or Dream products contain allergens?
    They declare all major allergens (peanuts, soybeans, milk, eggs, fish, crustaceans, tree nuts, and wheat) on the product label.

    Are SunSpire and Dream products kosher?
    All SunSpire products are certified Kosher. Kosher information can be found on the front of each package.

    Is SunSpire and Dream Chocolate "fair trade" certified?
    Yes

    Do they offer any vegan products?
    All of their SunSpire and Dream products are vegetarian. The following products are suitable for vegans: SunSpire Vegan Carob Chips, Sweet Chocolate Dream Creamy Sweet, Dark Chocolate Dream Pure Dark, Dark Chocolate Dream Rice Crunch, Dark Chocolate Dream Raspberry, Dark Chocolate Dream Almond.

    Are there trans fats in SunSpire or Dream products?
    SunSpire products do not contain trans fats.

    What is soy lecithin emulsifier?
    The emulsifier used in their Sunspire and Dream confections is derived from soybeans. It is used to keep the solids in cocoa butter or palm kernel oil from separating out of the finished product.

    What is carob?
    Carob is a natural fruit with a sweet and toasty flavor. The pulp of the fruit is used to make carob products.

    What is cocoa butter?
    Cocoa butter is the natural, cream-colored vegetable fat extracted from cocoa beans during the process of making chocolate and cocoa powder.

    Can I use products after the date?
    They recommend using any product before the Best Buy date. After that date they can not guarantee they will meet their strict standards of quality and taste.

    Can I recycle SunSpire or Dream packaging?
    They are always evaluating their packaging in an effort to find options that are earth friendly while meeting the high quality standards and shelf life their consumers expect. Materials vary by product to keep Sunspire and Dream products fresh. Please check your package for recyclable symbol.

    How do I read the date code on SunSpire and Dream products?
    U.S. date codes are usually listed as day, month, year, (DDMMMYY). For example, BEST BY 09FEB11 is February 9, 2011.

    Q: What is the shelf life of Sunspire products?
    Their SunSpire and Dream products provide a "best by" code date on the package which represents the end of the shelf life. The shelf life varies by product.

    How should SunSpire products be stored?
    For best results, we recommend that you store their chocolate and carob products between 55 and 65 degrees. Make any temperature changes gradually.

    Health Benefits of SunSpire Sweeteners
    Sunspire's commitment to delicious and healthy products is shown in the variety of sweeteners that SunSpire uses. SunSpire believes that less refined sugars are a better choice and they even enhance the flavor profile of SunSpire products.

    About Sunspire
    The SunSpire story began in 1979 when Janet Jennings, a fourth-generation chocolatier, set out to create a line of all-natural chocolate products that used no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or additives. Drawing on her family's time-honored chocolate making traditions, Janet soon blazed a new trail within the natural chocolate category, expertly combining premium ingredients to establish exceptional taste and quality standards that remain unmatched to this day.

    In her quest to craft delicious sweets that contained only natural ingredients, Janet quickly became a pioneer in the natural foods industry. Under her direction, SunSpire made several landmark innovations. They experimented with natural sweeteners, ultimately originating several healthful and delicious alternatives to refined sugars. They were the first company to market Fruit Source, a patented sweetener derived from grape juice and brown rice. They significantly expanded the all-natural baking chip category through the introduction of several groundbreaking products, including carob chips, organic chocolate chips, and the only white chocolate chips and peanut butter chips made without harmful trans-fats. And they helped to shape the rapidly growing gluten-free and dairy-free segment by launching their delectable Chocolate Dream candy bars and baking products.

    SunSpire Today
    Today, SunSpire is one of the nation's leading providers of all-natural chocolates, as well as the number one producer of all-natural chocolate products in the baking category. They boast a delicious line of entirely natural products that include Fair Trade Certified, organic, non-dairy and gluten-free, carob, and vegan selections. Their assortment encompasses baking chips, bars and cocoa powder; SunDrops, the natural alternative to M&M's; and a growing selection of decadent candy bars. They also offer a wide array of dried fruits and premium nuts that are generously coated in milk or dark chocolate, carob or yogurt. In accord with their founding values, every SunSpire products is made from the purest ingredients available and is completely free of refined sugars, hydrogenated oils, trans-fats, preservatives, artificial flavors or colors. Even the bright colors on their SunDrops come straight from Nature through beet juice, caramel and beta-carotene.

    The Hain Celestial Group
    In 1999, SunSpire was acquired by nSpired? Natural Foods, owner of Cloud Nine Confections, Tropical Source Chocolates and MaraNatha Nut Butters. In 2008, The Hain Celestial Group, a leader in natural and organic products, acquired nSpired? Natural Foods. Since then, Hain Celestial has worked to expand the SunSpired brands and to leverage them to innovate new high-quality baking and confectionary products that continue to meet the standards that SunSpire first set more than two decades ago.

      I followed the chocolate chip recipe right on the package and they turned out great! My husband loved them too. Will order more of this brand for future baking. I love that they are organic and I liked them better than other brands that are available at my supermarket.
