Here’s what it says:

Chicaoji Sauce
Featuring Goji berries, Cacao & Chipotles

Chicaoji Sauce tastes good on just about everything! It features a unique blend of goji berries and cacao warmed just a bit with chipotle chilies. The complex flavor and mild spiciness go with a great diversity of foods as a condiment and as an ingredient in recipes. Chicaoji deliciously weaves together all the flavors: sweet, sour, salt, bitter, savory and spicy.


Apple cider vinegar, water, goji berries, chipotles (smoked red-ripe jalapeños), maple syrup, Celtic Sea Salt® and cacao nibs (cacao is what chocolate is made of).
That’s it! Nothing else!
These are organic, vegan, gluten-free, GMO-free and Paleo diet friendly. Chicaoji contains no preservatives, flavorings, colorings or any additives of any kind.

Food is Medicine.

I selected Chicaoji’s ingredients because they are recognized as having health benefits in addition to their nutrition and most excellent flavors. Choosing organically produced ingredients is a powerful vote for sustainable and organic farming. Our choices make a difference.

What’s up with the name?

CHIpotle + caCAO + goJI = CHICAOJI. See how that works? Pronounce it ““chick-OW-gee”. It’s a new word for a new taste sensation.

Chicaoji Sauce is truly a “Taste of Lopez Island, Washington”. It was created during the summer of 2007 by the people who taste tested my variations of a sauce featuring the amazing combination of goji berries and cacao at the Vortex Juice Bar & Café. Full story on website.
