We are satisfying the world’s sweet tooth BEYOND SUGAR with desserts sooooo good…..if we didn’t tell you they were [good for you], you wouldn’t know.
Always gluten free with vegan, keto friendly, organic and no added sugar options in every flavor.
Keeping You Sweet was started shortly after my Mom's passing. She was a caterer and an awesome cook and baker. One of the things that gave me peace and comfort during my grief, was seeing her handwriting in her recipe books. I started using her recipes to bake her favorite desserts. Sometimes, I would bake large quantities and give them to organizations to help them raise funds. I donated 450 mini cakes to an event being held at NJPAC called, "A Taste Of Newark" and after the event I received a strong demand for my all natural cheesecakes with no added sugar. I asked a friend, who owns a food business, if he could refer me to a restaurant or store that might carry my cakes. He suggested I reach out to a contact that he had at Whole Foods. I never in a million years thought that I would be in a supermarket, let alone Whole Foods. To make a long story short, they invited me to partner with them in one store, and 2 weeks later offered me 5 more stores. My products will be in all NY/NJ/CT stores by 1st quarter 2021.
