Grown Up Kids Stuff, chocolate sauce for adults

We’d like you to meet our favorite new chocolate sauce – Grown Up Kids Stuff. Simply put, it is the taste of our adolescence packaged into a glass jar.

Chocolate Sauce? But I like my regular kind…

This ‘Stuff’ is not only made in our great city of Chicago, but it is also made from simple ingredients. No melodexo-whatevers or high fructose somethings – like typical supermarket off-the-shelf brand chocolate sauces. Grown Up Kids Stuff has cream, sugar, butter, cocoa, molasses, salt, spices. Plain English. This is the perfectly-made sneak at 2am.

Who creates this coco yummy?

A wonderfully nice couple that has been making this sweetness for years – even their kids ate it!

I want to eat it now! But how?

The way to really taste this chocolate sauce, I mean really taste it, is to pull a spoon and dig deep into the long container – drawing a heap of this ‘Stuff.’ Now the art of eating chocolate sauce on a spoon is really up to the eater – drop the whole clump down the hatch, nibble bits of the thick chocolate, or nab a gob and let your mouth melt it out tasting the layers of flavors. Either way you eat it, you’ll first notice the chocolate – as obvious as this sounds – it is a thick rich chocolate that has you come back for more.  A hint of molasses and just enough sweetness, not grainy or waxy, but smooth well orchestrated sugar that lives with and not around the chocolate. You don’t have to let this goodie live only on your spoon – try it on your favorite ice cream, drop a dollop in your morning joe to give it a boost, or even heat a bunch for dippin’ in fresh fruit.

How can I buy it?

Here, on our shelves. Nervous we don’t have any? Don’t hesisate to give us a call at 773-665-0100.  You’ve got to get a spoon ready to dig in. Because, what is not to love about local thick chocolate sauce with real ingredients? Well, nothing really.

    I just wanted to share my two cents about this chocolate sauce. I’ve had it before, and it’s delicious! (and I consider myself more of a vanilla than a chocolate lover). Enjoy.

    This is seriously the best chocolate sauce I’ve ever had.

    This “stuff” is absolutely amazing. I found it during a visit to Chicago and am in Mobile, AL. I want to order more for me and for gifts, but I can’t determine how to order it online

    […] – not some kind of served hot chocolate sauce (though you could always server it that way). We’ve been fond of GrownUp KidStuff for quite sometime, so when we saw this ‘hot’ chocolate sauce we had to share it. […]
