Unbelievable sweetness anytime

Well here I go again slipping in another blog post late in the day but still before midnight.

Sara is the owner of the sticky wrapper and she lives in Washington state with her husband and son who are both very supportive of her business and help out as much as possible.  She has been selling online since January 2011.  I asked her what got her started making such wonderful treats and she replied that the idea came to her when she was laid off and a friend of hers told her about Etsy.  She thought candy would be fun, versatile and fairly easy to ship and the only problem she would have to deal with would be the candy melting in the hot months.

At first she played with the idea of doing lollipops.  She ordered a sample pack of flavorings and the pack came with lemon oil.  Her other flavorings came from a local shop that has larger sizes that are a little more affordable plus it helps if you don't have to pay for shipping.  Many of her treats take about 4 hours to make.

All of her treats are made to order and special requests are welcome.  If you are having an event, please place in order in advance to allow time for Sara to both prepare and ship your goodies.  Handmade artisans always appreciate being able to plan their time in advance.  We love sending you the freshest and best possible products.

I asked Sara about her lemon/lavender caramels as far as what do the smell and/or taste like and she replied that the tastes and scents of the oils were very similar to regular extracts except slightly stronger and could be used in chocolates as well.

 Sara says she has always loved specialty candies and will try anything once.  God bless her.

I also couldn't resist asking Sara where she got her ideas for some of those wild treats from like the maple bacon caramel or balsamic strawberry marshmallows.  She told me the ideas come from family and cooking in general and that there are so many choices out there that she picks the ones she thinks will make her business stand out.  She also told me that the bacon flavors are pretty popular as well as the spicy caramels,  but the other flavors only seem to sell at certain times.

bacon salted caramels, anyone?

All candies come wrapped in FDA approved  self sealing packaging.  Sara's caramels and marshmallows are all made from scratch, and cooked on the stove, then poured into molds in order to keep them as uniform as possible.  Now go visit her fan page and then her shop and see if one of those 56 items will bring you and yours some special delight.
