Not Your Sugar Mamas has taken their raw chocolate business and made it brick and mortar. This week, Not Your Sugar Mamas opened their own store in Tisbury Marketplace next door to Rocco's Pizzeria. Ths store not only sells their amazing raw chocolate, but also organic coffee, herbal energy beverages, and other chocolate healty-for-you treats.
The founders of Not Your Sugar Mamas, Bennett Coffey and Kyleen Keenan, explained that their chocolate is, "Dairy free and gluten free as well as free of refined sugar."
Along with chocolate bars they also sell brownies and cookies. And a hot chocolate at Not Your Sugar Mamas means customers have a choice of organic or hemp milk and organic coconut palm sugar.
One of the most unique beverages that they sell that you'll have a hard time finding anywhere else, is the Dandilion Herbal Beverage.
"It's not a coffee beverage, it's an herbal beverage. It's made from dandilion root, beet root, and extract of roasted barley, rye and chickory root," said Keenan.
Keenan said it has the same taste as coffee without the acidity. And it doesn't hurt your blood sugar. "It's a great alternative to coffee," she said.
"It's real energy, not just that instant shock...you can use it as espresso."
As for the store hours, "Right now we're open 11 am - 3 pm because we just opened, but we'll be expanding our hours soon."
The business has a twitter account: @NotUrSugrMamas and a Facebook page: Not Your Sugar Mamas where they will be posting updates and daily specials.http://marthasvineyard.patch.com/articles/not-your-sugar-mamas-is-open-at-the-tisbury-marketplace
