Local Producer Loan For Hail Merry

By Heather Kennedy, July 28, 2011  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Heather Kennedy

Our most recent Local Producer Loan recipient, Hail Merry, was started by raw food chef Susan O’Brien with a desire to bring awareness to the benefits of healthy, raw oils.  And if this is what raw oils taste like, I’m never going back! Dallas-based Hail Merry creates delicious macaroons, tarts, nuts and granola (grawnola, if you please) which are raw or dehydrated at very low temperatures to protect the integrity of the dietary oils and living enzymes found in the raw, organic ingredients.  All products are vegan with no refined sugars. Rest assured you do not have to be vegan or a raw foodist to enjoy these amazing treats. Hail Merry's macaroons and tarts are my number one go-to when my sweet tooth kicks in! In fact, their Chocolate Almond Butter Miracle Tart won best new vegan product at the Natural Foods Expo this year. With the proceeds from their loan, Hail Merry purchased a forming machine, which will help them automate their process and increase production.  They are expanding quickly and will need that extra product! They started off in Texas and you can now purchase Hail Merry products at Whole Foods Markets throughout the Southwest, Midwest, Rocky Mountains, California, Louisiana and a few stores in the Northeast. Learn more about Hail Merry in this short video interview.

@JILL- You can find a list of the stores that sell their products in Florida on their website at http://www.hailmerry.com//ustorelocator/location/map. It looks like there is a retailer about 12 miles from Ft. Lauderdale. Enjoy!

@MIRIAM - I was unable to find anywhere to buy on their site since most of their products are perishable. You can reach out to them directly at http://www.hailmerry.com/contact-us.

I absolutely adore your macaroons. I love the coconut and dark chocolate. Where can I try your other treats in NYC?

I was given a sample of the Hail Merry Grawnola orange cranberry raw nut & fruit blend at a conference and just LOVED it. I need to know where I can find some in Austin, TX. Perfect snack!

Love, love Hail Merry macaroons! My neighborhood Whole Foods gave me a bag to sample, & I was hooked after the first little mac. I have one, only one with my coffee each morning! I savor that single mac til the last sip of my java. It is a yummy start to my day!
