Our passion

Savvy Gourmand originated from the love of food and the idea of owning a business. In 2009, Reed and Amber Hawkins started the business in South Alabama with the manufacturing facility in Mississippi. Amber is the one behind the scenes creating the recipes. At first, they traveled to various tradeshows all over the southeast region to introduce people to the product. After a few shows, the wholesale division of Savvy Gourmand emerged. The company was passed along to Donna Hawkins-McNeece, who runs it out of Mississippi now. 

We pride ourselves on developing our own original recipes and if you compare the quantity of the ingredients to other dip and cheese ball companies; there is no comparison. The packaging allows the customer to see exactly what they are buying. 

Our ALL TIME TOP SELLERS are the Pineapple Pecan Chicken Salad Mix, Turtle Cheesecake Cheeseball, Strawberry Cheesecake, Blueberry Blast, BLT, Cheesy Buffalo Ranch, Kickin Cajun, and Spinach Cheese.

Beginning in the fall of 2016, we hope to expand our wholesale business with the help of outside traveling sales representatives. 

Hope you enjoy your dips and cheese balls!
