Dandy Blend is a caffeine-free herbal beverage and coffee alternative. It consists of five ingredients: roasted barley extracts, roasted rye extracts, roasted dandelion root extracts, roasted chicory root extracts, and roasted sugar beet root extracts.
Dandy Blend is adored by fans for having the rich, bold, and creamy flavor of real coffee. If you’re trying to quit coffee or just looking to lower your caffeine intake, Dandy Blend provides of the goodness of dandelion in an instant while still having that coffee taste, smell, look and feel.
But who’s the star? Dandelion, of course!
Hailed by many over centuries for its various health benefits, dandelion is believed to detox the liver, soothe the nervous system, and calm the stomach.
Dandy Blend’s powdered consistency is soluble in any liquid at any temperature, enabling you to create a variety of beverages from iced coffees and lattes to cappuccinos. It can also be used in many recipes to create sweet treats and crafted cocktails.
Dandy Blend’s organic line is available in 3.5 oz and 11 oz bags. The organic line does not include roasted sugar beet root extracts.
The History of Dandy Blend
In 1990, Dr. Peter Gail found a caffeine-free beverage he liked, but he knew he could make one better. He combined his love for making plants edible with dandelion root to make it more therapeutic and flavorful, and, in 1994 Dandy Blend was born.
Over the years, Dandy Blend has been introduced to alternative medical practitioners, who in turn introduced it to their clients and demand grew. What started as a basement business graduated to the garage, and, in 2003 to a warehouse in Valley City, Ohio. As it grew, the founder’s family became involved in the operations. In 2014, Dandy Blend was certified kosher, and in 2016, Certified Organic Dandy Blend was added to the line.
In 2019, Dandy Blend celebrated 25 years as one of the original coffee alternatives.

Dandy Blend is produced by Goosefoot Acres, Inc. launched in 1989 to help people learn how to use the resources nature provides to make the things they need instead of buying them. Chief among these items were the edible and useful wild plants growing underfoot.
About Dr. Peter Gail
Dubbed the “King of Dandelions,” botanist and Dandy Blend Founder Dr. Peter Gail devoted his life’s work to the study of wild plants – particularly the dandelion.
From teaching others how to safely consume freshly foraged weeds, herbs, and roots to using them for medicinal and healing properties, Dr. Gail amassed one of the largest collections of recipes and folklore for wild edible plants in the U.S. His passion for educating others was evident in the various books he published as well as his 16-year tenure as a professor at Cleveland State University in Cleveland, Ohio.
Today his daughter, son in law and grandchildren carry on the business in his honor – continuing to share Peace + Happiness with others through his legacy, a sentiment Dr. Gail held dear.
