Our story is 4 generations in the making. Growing up I spent a lot of great time with my Grandma and Grandpa in San Diego, CA. They both loved to cook and we spent a lot of time in the kitchen and the grill. Family time was important and we shared many a great meal, music, cards and laughter with Uncles, Aunts and cousins too.
Christmas was always a big candy making time. Fudges, chocolates, cookies and all kinds of sweet treats. We gave away sweet treats to work, friends and family. A tradition I continued in raising my 4 kiddos.
In May of 2000 we moved to Montana to help my dad open a candy store that he connected his antique stores too. It was wonderful! Loved the business. Making the fudge and hand dipping chocolates while providing quality customer service was awesome. However, working with my dad was not so much.
Fast forward to today and I'm in Oregon with my oldest son have created this sweet business together with great support from my other 3 kiddos. It's a real family affair and I am greatly blessed to have such a wonderful family.

Currently we do not have a 'storefront'. We take our product to the local farmer's markets and events throughout the state. We're hoping by adding a new online store presence more folks can have a 'sweet' time anywhere they live!'
