How Dandy Blend Came to Be....
Dr. Peter Gail began his journey with edible wild plants as a young boy. After his father passed away, their neighbor taught him and his family how to identify and use edible wild plants that could be found in their back yard. These plants helped his family supplement their diet until his mother found employment. He continued to lean about the wonders of edible wild plants through out his life.
When he was in his late forties he was looking for a beverage that did not contain caffeine, tasted good, and was a source of nutrients. He came across a beverage that he liked but lacked the tasted and nutrition he was looking for. He was able to change the formula and the roasting regimen to create a beverage that meet all his needs. Dandy Blend was born.
For the first 10 years in the US, Dandy Blend was only available through health practitioners. At their urging, in 2003 Dandy Blend was made available to health food stores. Now, Dandy Blend is available from retailers across the United States, mostly in health food stores where the staff takes personal interest in introducing it to their customers.
