About Us

The seriously good candy that isn't too serious.

We believe in turning the ordinary into something special. Our fresh, delicious candy helps you stop to enjoy the little things that bring joy and pleasure in life. 

We'd love to introduce you to the irresistible results of candy handcrafted without any junk or shortcuts—just premium, natural ingredients and the patience of slow-cooking to perfection.

A great place to start is our bestseller: Sea Salt Caramels. They’re known to convert caramel skeptics into fans!
