Dandy Blend is a caffeine-free alternative beverage to coffee. It tastes remarkably like a rich, full-bodied cup of coffee, no brewing, dissolves instantly in hot or cold liquid. It is caffeine free, and has no acidity or bitterness. It is one of the only herbal coffee substitute that features both the health benefits of dandelion root and the rich, full-bodied flavor, smoothness and texture of real coffee. Many say that, because it lacks bitterness and acidity, it actually tastes better than coffee. It is made of water-soluble extracts of roasted roots of dandelion, chicory and beets, and the extracts of barley and rye grains. Nothing else is added. While we make no claims for Dandy Blend other than that it is a delicious herbal beverage with the taste, body, and texture of coffee, the ingredients â dandelion, chicory and beet roots, and barley and rye grains â are all health-promoting foods respected throughout the world. Dandy Blend is still gluten-free, because it is comprised of only the water-soluble extracts of rye and barley - which do not contain gluten.
Ingredients: Dandelion Extract, Barley Extract, Rye Extract, Chicory Extract, Beet Root Extract.
Goosefoot Acres, Inc. and the Goosefoot Acres Center for Resourceful Living were launched in 1988 to help people learn how to use the resources nature provides to make the things they need, instead of buying them. Chief among these things were the edible and useful wild plants growing underfoot.
In 1990, Dr. Peter Gail found a caffeine-free beverage he liked, but knew he could make better. He combined his love for cereal beverages with dandelion root to make it more therapeutic and flavorful, and, in 1994, Dandy Blendwas born.
Throughout the years, Dandy Blend was introduced to alternative medical practitioners. They introduced it to their clients, and demand grew. What started as a basement business graduated to the garage, and, in 2003 to a warehouse in Valley City Ohio. As it grew, the founder’s children and grandchildren became involved in the operations. In 2014, Dandy Blend was certified kosher, and in 2016, Certified Organic Dandy Blend was added to the line.
