About Awesome Organics!

A product is only as good as the people who stand behind it.

And our people are some of the best. But, we’re a bit partial, because we are a family-operated
business here in Brooklyn, New York.

With the help of a pretty sharp research and development team, we are snack enthusiasts
(some call us "snack crazy") who come up with all kinds of flavor-rich snacks.

We know that not everything is what it seems to be. We also know that contrary to popular belief,
popcorn, cookie and chip snacks are not little nutritional demons. In fact, and hold on to your seat—
sometimes healthy snacks throughout the day can substitute for a big three-meal day.

Dessert Spotlight: Three Twins Sea Salted Caramel Ice Cream


Three Twins makes inconceivably delicious organic ice cream. By sourcing milk and cream from within 17 miles of our California factory, and carefully mixing and freezing each batch to ensure a smooth texture, we dish up extraordinarily fresh and tasty flavors. Making great ice cream isn't a costing exercise for us, so we make our recipes based on what will deliver the best flavor – not by trying to arrive at the lowest cost. Our vanilla is richer, our chocolate is bolder and our coffee is more intense than most.

Today we bring you the their Sea Salted Caramel variety.



Organic milk, organic cream, organic evaporated cane juice, caramel (organic sugar, organic cream, organic non fat milk, organic tapioca syrup, organic caramelized sugar, sea salt), organic egg yolks, organic non fat milk, organic vanilla extract.

The Story of Sea Salted Caramel

For the real scoop on Three Twins' flavors, we went straight to the source: Founding Twin Neal Gottlieb. Here's what he says about our sweet and sassy superstar, Sea Salted Caramel.

Salted caramel is the new black. It's everywhere: in ice cream, on cupcakes and in your nonfat, shade-grown, songbird-safe goat's milk molten lava hot caramel latte. But, one place it hadn't been was in the form of an inconceivably delicious, certified organic ice cream. And as it turns out, creating an organic salted caramel ice cream isn't as easy as apple pie (though the two do go together quite well).

Finding an appropriate organic caramel really proved to be a challenge. I found a few folks who were making organic caramel, and although their hearts were in the right places, the caramel was by no means flavorful enough to make an ice cream that was unquestionably delicious. So I set forth to do better for you, my loyal reader. And for the children.

After locating a company that made caramel for various applications, I was enthused to learn that they would work with us to develop a certified organic caramel to use as the foundation of our Sea Salted Caramel ice cream. When I got the first samples, I was less than impressed.

It wasn't that the samples were bad; in fact, they were quite tasty. It was the ingredients that were the problem, and two ingredients in particular. The first ingredient that I wanted to take outside and have words with was "natural flavor." Though I was raised in New Jersey, which is home to a good portion of the chemical companies that make the country's natural and artificial flavors, I don't see a place for such things in my ice cream or anything else that I eat.

Flavors are things that are trying to taste like things but that don't really taste like the thing that they're trying to taste like. The result is poor approximations and worse aftertastes. I use only real things in my ice cream, not things trying to taste like things. It is a simple rule with little to no room for debate, and it has decidedly delicious consequences.

The other ingredient that was banished was something with name I can't even remember. It contained four syllables over two words, and I can't really be bothered to look it up. It's dead to me. The purpose of this ingredient, I was told, was to act as a buffer. I don't know what that means and neither did my sales rep, so I demanded that he leave it out.

I am happy to say that, after several test batches, the caramel company nailed it. They gave us a caramel with a clean ingredient statement and the balance of a rich caramel taste, with a tease of sea salt that allows this kid to play in the big leagues. This is not some little leaguer playing left out. This is a Hall-of-Famer in the making. And unlike some that you'll find in Cooperstown, you won't find asterisks next to this one due to the addition of synthetic stuff.
