Fresh out of school, Cynthia Tice knew she needed a job and that she had a passion for helping people eat better. So in 1978, she opened Center Foods in Philadelphia. Way before the rest of us were sipping green juice, Cynthia was raising awareness of better-for-you foods. In 2003, Cynthia hit a milestone birthday (don’t ask which one) and decided to kick sugar for good. The only problem was chocolate — she just couldn’t give it up. So in 2010, she made her own no sugar added chocolate and launched Lily’s Sweets with her longtime friend Chuck Genuardi.
Today, Lily’s mission hasn’t changed. In everything it makes, it sources non-GMO and gluten-free ingredients harvested through Fair Trade practices, and ensures every product is botanically sweetened — meaning no refined or processed sugars. The result is a chocolate with no added sugar that’s filled with pure deliciousness.
Since its inception, Lily’s Sweets has been committed to supporting causes it loves and believes in. Lily’s pledges a percentage of earnings to non-profit organizations that support the fight against childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
