Fourteen years ago, when Gretchen's father began battling the throat cancer that deadened his sense of taste, she comforted him by making soothing, chewy honey-vanilla caramels. Gretchen's business partner Lisa spent her youth amid the almond orchards near her grandparents' candy business, developing a deep appreciation for locally made confections and sweets. The pair converted an old Vista pizza parlor into their own candy shop, making sweets by hand from wholesome ingredients such as central California milk, Sonoma sea salt, and San Francisco chocolate.
Like any good buddy-cop movie, the selection of treats blends disparate ingredients that work surprisingly well together, such as signature caramels and toffees dusted with unrefined sea salt, or chile verde caramels. Gretchen and Lisa also give back to their community and non-profits by creating handsome fundraising packages.
