Founder Michele Hoskins takes Michele Foods to a sweet new level, with gourmet syrups made from a centuries-old family recipe.
CHICAGO, Nov. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Michele Foods, makers of mouthwatering gourmet syrups, is celebrating its 40th anniversary of bringing its cherished family recipes to everyday consumers, founded by Michele Hoskins. The year marks a new surge of activity for the beloved brand that is going stronger than ever.
Celebrations start with the "Good Over Everything" brand's first national commercial and launch on Amazon. Coming soon is a beautiful commemorative gift box with syrups, a new pancake mix, recipes and more. All this so everyone can get to know Michele, who is a national treasure.
As founder of Michele Foods, her namesake brand has made her the "Real Mother of Syrups." Having appeared on Oprah three times, she has the secret recipes for delicious syrups and runs the first Black woman-owned syrup company.
"I've inherited a strong work ethic and a passion for crafting sweet, flavorful syrups unlike others on the market," said Hoskins. "I'm part of a long line of strong women who enjoy using syrups in many of my recipes that are generations in the making!
"These recipes were passed down to me at a low point in my life. As a young Black woman from the Southside of Chicago, I was going through a divorce and was a single mom to three daughters. The syrup recipes were a life lesson in moving on and creating a new chapter to support my family and pay homage to the women before and after."
Hoskin's great-great-great grandmother, America Washington, was a freed slave in the late 1800s who developed a recipe for syrup out of churned butter, honey and cream as an alternative to molasses. Michele Foods offers three flavors today: Honey Crème, Maple Crème, and Butter Pecan varieties. The syrups are more than just for waffles and pancakes. Cooks use them as a condiment as well. It's truly a "Sweet family Legacy in a Bottle"
From working out of her mom's basement, hand pouring syrup with a funnel into bottles, to today with national distribution in over 10,000 stores, Hoskins notes it's the stuff that dreams are made of and an excellent example of never giving up. She is grateful to represent women-owned businesses and the African American community.
