Sunday Night Foods, the Des Moines-based premium chocolate dessert sauces company, won the gold award in the dessert toppings category as part of the Specialty Food Association’s 2024 Sofi Awards. Eileen Gannon founded Sunday Night Foods in 2021 when she turned her love of baking and award-winning recipes into a business after working as a communications senior vice president at Workiva for 35 years. Her sauces come in chocolate, sea salt chocolate, dark chocolate and vegan chocolate, all described as brownie rich with subtle hints of vanilla and sea salt. The Sunday Night Sea Salt Chocolate Premium Dessert Sauce won the gold Sofi award. Now Gannon’s Sunday Night line of dessert toppings is found in more than 100 Hy-Vee grocery stores, 140 Fareway stores, as well as smaller markets such as Fresh Thyme, Gateway Market, and even Kitchen Collage in the East Village. Memorial Day weekend marks the brand’s appearance at the Downtown Des Moines Farmers Market, where they plan to be in person for five Saturdays this summer. Next up, Gannon and the Sunday Night crew head to New York City and the Summer Fancy Food Show at the Javits Center in June.
