Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy day of love! At Sustainable Snacks, we believe Valentine’s is a time to celebrate all love: love for oneself, love for one’s partner, love for family and friends -- and, of course, love for chocolate! Whether you’re spending the evening watching rom-coms with your gals, or cooking a romantic dinner for two, we’ve created the perfect, healthful celebratory dessert: Spicy Chocolate + Avocado Mousse. Our mousse is a wonderful combination of rich dark chocolate and warming spices -- without any of the bad stuff. We hope you love it just as much as we do!
