“Conscious Decadence: Exquisite Treats for Grown-Up Palates”

Need a special holiday gift for family or friends? Look no further!

Allison’s Gourmet is a consciously vegan company, offering organic, vegan and fair-trade sweets of every kind. Baked goods, artisan chocolate truffles, fudge, caramels, toffee, brittle, peanut butter cups, peppermint crème patties, and more; available on their own, or as elegant gift baskets.

In 1989, owner Allison Rivers Samson dove into experimenting with vegan dessert recipes, confident that she could find a way to make all the sweet things she loved without using animal products, highly refined sweeteners, or unpronounceable ingredients. In 1997, after refining her skills through chef training and perfecting her recipes, Allison felt she was ready to please the palates of discerning dessert lovers everywhere, and she opened AllisonsCookies.com, which grew into Allison’s Gourmet. Over the years, she has continued to add more top-notch exclusive creations like vegan brownies, vegan caramels, vegan toffee, artisan vegan chocolates and more.

None of the products are made with palm oil. They use all organic ingredients, including sugar (bone-char refining is not allowed for certified organic sugar). They’re also committed to using all fair-trade and shade-grown ingredients.

“As a conscientious company, we care about you, the planet, and all of its inhabitants. Therefore, Allison’s Gourmet is founded on the following practices and beliefs:

  • We offer vegan desserts that taste fantastic!
  • We seek out and use only the finest organic, fair-trade, vegan ingredients.
  • We use minimally processed ingredients, avoiding any that require a chemistry degree to understand.
  • We use post-consumer recycled paper and packaging whenever possible.
  • We value optimal health as priceless. Delicious, high-quality food costs more, and is completely worth it!”

Special Holiday Note: If you’re seeking a beautiful gift this holiday season, be sure to check out Allison’s gift options. In addition to instant gift certificates and gourmet gift baskets, Allison’s offers gourmet samplers and even a ‘cookie of the month’ club.
