Somebody’s Mother’s Chocolate Sauce Review

I love chocolate…plain and simple. Milk chocolate is my favorite. I was so excited when a nice lady saw me on Twitter, after I raved about Somebody’s Mother’s Chocolate Sauce, and said to email her to see what we could do. How cool is that? The nice lady is from Somebody’s Mother and she sent me a jar of their Chocolate Sauce to review, and another to giveaway!

I was very impressed with how well they were packaged. They were neatly surrounded in bubble wrap, and placed in box with more padding. Of course, all of the neat packaging was thrown to the wind (sorry!) when I discovered what was inside. The jars are adorable (as is the name!), and I had to try them immediately.

The directions said to heat for 3 seconds and that was perfect. After it has been refrigerated, I had to heat just a tad bit longer. I first tried it plain, as I wanted to get the full flavor. Well, I sure got the full flavor alright – I ate a small bowl of the sauce plain. I cannot express enough how delicious this sauce is. It reminds me of when I make fudge, and it is at the gooey stage. YUM.

I did eventually try the sauce as an ice cream topping and as you can imagine, it was superb. I have been eating more ice cream than I have in a long time. I admit that I get a little bit giddy when I think to myself, “Ooooh, I have Somebody’s Mother’s downstairs!”. The sad part is that my jar – the holy grail of chocolate sauces – is gone. I finished it last night and I was just a bit depressed. You will never guess what I did today…I ordered two jars. I have not had my fill of this yummy sauce, and I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my two precious jars.

From Somebody’s Mother’s website:

In April 2005, Somebody’s Mother and her children launched a company in order to produce and sell a really great chocolate sauce (made often over the years at home by Somebody’s Mother’s Mother) which can be eaten warm over ice cream, at room temperature fastened to fruit, or cold straight out of the jar.

The sauce has no preservatives and Somebody’s Mother has no current plans to infuse it with hibiscus or oil it with lavender. It’s just a plain, no-nonsense chocolate sauce that everybody seems to like. Even chocolate haters like it. Somebody’s Mother hopes you, too, will like it and buy it in great quantities so she can keep the children clothed and fed. For a little while longer.

In addition to the yummy chocolate sauce I tried, they also have White Chocolate Sauce and Caramel Sauce. I desperately wanted to order the Caramel Sauce, as I know it has to be delicious too, but I ordered two chocolates instead (LOL). For gift giving, Somebody’s Mother’s sauces are also available in gift packs. One other thing I love about the sauces is that they contain no high fructose corn syrup, additives, or preservatives. You can purchase these sauces online, you can find them at Somebody’s Mother’s retail locations.

I give Somebody’s Mother’s Chocolate Sauce a big, huge thumbs up. This is the best tasting chocolate sauce ever…and I mean ever! If you are a chocolate lover, I promise you will not be disappointed.

    I'm a little skerred to be honest. I have a feeling that I will get hooked just like you. I'd start my potential addiction with plain ol' chocolate. Then let it blossom into a full blown affair with the other sauces.

    I'm thinking strawberries…graham crackers…ice cream…on top of cupcakes. OH! My hips.

  52. The caramel Sauce would be my first choice, although they all look good. How I would use it? I could say I would pour it over exquisite ice-cream sundaes, but most likely I will eat it out of the jar with a spoon.

  65. I would probably like the chocolate sauce the most. I would like to say that I would use it on fruit but I would probably end up eating it with a spoon.

  66. Hi! I was so excited to find out about this sauce. Chocolate? Caramel? Yum Yum Yum! I absolutely love chocolate – dipping them with marshmallows, graham crackers, delicious. It would be so hard to choose the sauce, but I would want caramel. I'm thinking a banana split sundae with caramel sauce and bits of crushed graham crackers on top. Delish!

  67. Oh, and my email address (oops!) is honeydrops@gmail.com. Thanks! 🙂

  68. My favorite to try is the Somebody's Mother's Caramel Sauce & I would pour it all over vanilla ice cream with bananas & nuts!

  86. Being a true chocoholic, the fudge sauce wins hands down as first choice, and the main use would be on ice cream!

  122. I'd love to make a sundae out of the Chocolate Sauce & some peanut butter chocolate ice cream!

  123. I would love to try Somebody's Mother's chocolate Chocolate sauce.

  124. karmakaytlyn

    The first idea I had for this chocolate sauce after reading your blog was as a topping for strawberry shortcake. IT is nearly the peak of strawberry season here in VT and nothing sounds tastier than a slab of pound cake hiding under a mountain of fresh strawberries with a dallop freshly whipped cream under many large chocolate drizzles! Thanks so much for the chance to make my chocoholic dream come true from karmakaytlyn@yahoo.com!

    But I LOVE caramel sundaes, too (I just love chocolate more!), so that's a close second.

  131. Let's go with the Somebody's Mother's White Chocolate Sauce
    and hope it makes it onto the chocolate tart (but I might just eat it directly from the jar).

  132. •´.¸¸.•¨¯`♥.Erin.♥´¯¨•.¸¸.´•
  133. Silly question . . . nothing is better than good chocolate. I know I'd put it on ice cream, probably chocolate dip some fruit, and maybe I'd even break down and eat some straight from the jar. I see that Somebody's Mother has a category for recipes, but it's not available yet. I'd love to see what others are doing with this sauce.

  134. Cj @ Live Laugh Love

    Oh my to choose but one….

    the Somebody's Mother CaraM-E-L Sauce would be a favorite to me. I big puffy heart CaraM-E-L!
    Hmmmm to use in homemade brownies, on ice cream, with homemade pretzels as a dipping sauce, on banana's! Ohhhh the thoughts for this sauce are endless…
