Having always found great joy in baking confections and cakes, owner and baker Gru was finally convinced by impressed friends to make a career of it. When she would bring her homemade truffles or cake pops to parties, they often told her through mouthfuls of sweets that she was no ordinary baker. With that encouragement, she opened Juju Sweetz, where those creations as well as her mini cupcakes and other handheld delectables are now available to all. Also gifted with a flair for design, Gru customizes orders, sculpting cake pops into shapes such as flags and stars for the Fourth of July and preparing bushels of treats for other special events, including weddings, birthdays, and baby showers.

When Deltone L. Moore was growing up, he’d sit with his uncle in the upper deck at Cleveland Indians games, waiting for two things: the chance to catch a foul ball and the moment the popcorn guy walked by. He never forgot the scent of fresh, buttery popcorn wafting through the stands, and what began as a childhood treat turned into a lifelong passion. As Moore studied popcorn, experimented with flavors, and lived among a tribe of kernels for a year, he realized he could devise original, improved versions of the classic treat.

At Popcorn Monkey, he and his team create a full spectrum of flavors, such as blueberry, orange, ranch, and blue cheese, in small batches. In addition to selling their popped kernels by the bag, the staff also stock holiday and sports-themed tins, as well as festive gift baskets.
