Oh my gosh I am so sorry! I feel for you. I hate getting that dreaded email. Do they want you to up the sugar to 3:1 ratio?? I couldn't get mine there. What if you just had your current recipes lab tested. Not sure if you have a lot of them but it may be worth it. So frustrating! I got an email as well but I was lucky and it was only a few items that I was able to fix and get passed. Now I just have to do another inspection. Hope it goes better for you. Keep me posted.
Yes, they want me to up my sugar to the 3:1 ratio. That's just too much of a change. They said I could get them lab tested, but I chose not to this time. What I did was submit 2 versions of my SMBC recipes. One version has vegan butter instead of butter, and the other version is a completely different vegan SMBC recipe. It looks like those will get approved. I did the same for my ganache and those look like they'll be getting approved as well. I got my second notice last Friday and I submitted the changes yesterday. This time, the list was much shorter and they were more just technical issues rather than problems with my ingredients. So, it looks like I'm almost there! How is your renewal going ShannonDavie?
