It all began with a rabbit.
Yes, the cute fluffy little animal is in a way responsible for Sweets From The Earth. It was the mid-70s, and founder Ilana’s dad went out hunting with a neighbor. The next day, the neighbor came over with rabbit stew, and 7 year-old animal lover, Ilana, was horrified. It was then she declared herself a vegetarian. She began fending for herself in the kitchen amongst her meat-eating family, and learned to love cooking and then…baking.
Her passion for food meant that years later when she adopted a vegan lifestyle, she didn’t think for an instant of giving up her love of luscious, decadent desserts. Instead, she decided to learn the craft and science of baking in pastry school, and soon enough discovered that no animals or animal by-products need be used in the making of sweet delicious things. She began whipping up the kind of scrumptious cookies, cakes and treats that dessert lovers everywhere dream about, and in 2002, Sweets From The Earth was born.
Today, Sweets From The Earth makes a full line of original recipe, egg and dairy-free baked goods, which are made all the more delectable by using only the best all natural, 100% plant-based, GMO-free ingredients.
Bonus: You don’t have to be vegan or have dietary restrictions to love these desserts – any old sweet tooth will do. They’re a healthier alternative to your run-of-the-mill baked goods, and you’ll never miss what’s missing from them!
And where is all this yumminess created? In two separate facilities: One dedicated dairy, egg, peanut and nut-free, the other dairy, egg wheat and gluten-free.
Now enough reading about us…go get some dessert!
