Wax orchards sent me some delicious samples. I received the Orange Passion Fudge Sauce, Classic Fudge and the Fruit Sweet. Last night we took the Orange Passion Fudge Sauce and heated it in the microwave and used it on strawberries and angel food cake. We all really enjoyed it. The Orange Passion Fudge Sauce tasted wonderful on the cake and strawberries.
Wax Orchards has a selection 100% Fruit-Sweetened Chocolate Fudge SaucesFive mouth-watering flavors including Classic Fudge Sauce—a dark, semisweet, European sauce, Fudge Fantasy Sauce—Dark, sweet and distinct, Oh Fudge! Sauce—traditional, medium-sweet dark chocolate, Peppermint Fudge Sauce—dark chocolate carefully blended with real peppermint and Orange Passion Fudge Sauce—a fabulous combination of dark chocolate and subtle real orange flavor.
Wax Orchards TraditionsIt all started on the farm.
August and Johanna Wax planted their first fruit trees in 1920 on Vashon Island, a short ferry ride from Seattle. They grew and sold tart cherries, apples, apricots, peaches, currants and gooseberries, as well as fresh apple juice from their island orchards.
They made high-fiber, thick preserves the same way the original American settlers did, using only whole ripe fruit, without water or pectin. They coined the term "fruit-sweetened" to differentiate their products from others that used sugar, corn syrup, and other sweeteners.
Sweetening with natural fruit concentrate is the foundation of our entire product line today. Wax Orchards FRUIT SWEET™ is a blend of natural fruit juice concentrates. The sugars on our nutrition labels are not added; they are the natural sugars present in fruit, along with their fiber. That's why you'll find our flavors unusually fresh and intense.
We continue August and Johanna's tradition, creating delicious, healthy alternatives for folks like you who want "All of the Sweet - None of the Sugar™". In Wax Orchards products, you will find nothing but real, pure food: no additives, no chemicals, nothing you can't pronounce. We hope you enjoy our products and would love to hear from you.
Health BenefitsLong before most people were thinking about healthy alternatives to sugar, corn syrup and other sweeteners, Wax Orchards formulated FRUIT SWEET™, a delicious and nutritious combination of 100% fruit juices, from pure, natural fruit, free of any additives.
DiabetesFRUIT SWEET™ is an ideal choice for people suffering from diabetes and anyone concerned about healthful alternatives to sugar and sugar derivatives.
FiberWax Orchards fruit syrups and chocolate fudge sauces retain the natural fiber of the fruit. Natural fruit fiber can lower blood cholesterol levels and improve digestion. Because fiber makes you feel fuller, it can help you lose weight.
Healthy ChocolateUnlike most other chocolate fudge sauces, Wax Orchards products contain no fat, no dairy, no gluten -- just delicious, antioxidant-rich cocoa and fruit.
On their site they have some awesome recipes. I plan to make the chocolate cake this weekend, I will post an update once the cake is baked.
They have offered a coupon for my readers. You can get $2.00 off every 11 oz Wax Orchards Fudge product you purchase at waxorchards.com from now until October 1, 2011. The code is LetsEat.

This past Saturday I made a cake with this recipe:
THE QUICK CHOCOLATE CAKE
Easiest, moistest, chocolatiest cake ever! Combine: 1/4 c cooking oil 3/4 c Wax Orchards FRUIT SWEET™ 1 egg 1 t vanilla 1 c hot water Separately combine: 1 c flour 1/2 c unsweetened cocoa 1 t baking soda 1 t baking powder 1/4 t salt Whisk dry ingredients into wet. Bake in 8" round pan for 35-40 min at 350 degrees. Top with Wax Orchards chocolate sauce drizzles, chocolate cream cheese frosting, or FRUIT SWEET Cream Cheese Frosting. FRUIT SWEET Cream Cheese Frosting 4oz cream cheese 1 T butter 2 to 3 T FRUIT SWEET Beat with electric mixer until smooth and fluffy. Nice touch: Ice top of cake, then zigzag warm Wax Orchards chocolate sauce over cake.
It was so moist and delicious. I used a creamy vanilla frosting instead of cream cheese and it was really good.
