Hail Merry is proud to announce that her new Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Macaroon is a sofi Award finalist for the Best Snack Food Category 2014. The sofi is the most coveted honor of the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade. “We tried to create that sweet melt-in-your-mouth sensation reminiscent of unbaked cookie dough with just the right amount of rich chocolate flavor, but without any eggs and gluten,” explains Founder, Susan O’Brien.
Winners will be announced at the Summer Fancy Food Show in NYC on June 30. There were 2,025 plus entries across 30 awards categories all vying for the list of 109 finalists. A national panel of specialty food experts, including judges from Fresh Direct, Whole Foods Market, The Wall Street Journal, Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurants, Mollie Stone's Market, DeLaurenti's Specialty Food & Wine and Artisanal Premium Cheese, tasted and choose the finalists. “We are honored to receive recognition from this esteemed judging pool and association. My partners, Ali Brushaber and Susan O'Brien, continue to conspire for magic when creating new products for Hail Merry. We think this just might be our best yet,” states CEO, Sarah Palisi Chapin.

They are made from pure ingredients, such as organic extra virgin coconut oil, Fair Trade dark cocoa and organic maple syrup from a family farm in Vermont.
