A Chat with SWEET, a confections boutique
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
In addition to our confections being made completely from scratch with all-natural and local ingredients, we pride ourselves on our wildly creative, culinary inspired flavors of our marshmallows and our caramel, like bourbon & bacon caramel chews and roasted sweet potato and chai marshmallows.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
While looking for some unique candy recipes for a candy store that my daughter, Kelsey wanted to open in Detroit, I came across a handmade marshmallow recipe, tried it and fell in love with everything about the process of creating marshmallows.
What do you love most about your job?
As I stated before, I love everything about creating the confections! I love the process along with the customers’ reactions when they try the creative flavors and luxurious textures of our marshmallows and caramel.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
A pastry chef from Virginia once told me that my marshmallows were the best she ever tasted in both texture and flavor. She tried several of our flavors and said she has made them when she worked at a bakery, ordered them online and even purchased them in New York, but ours were the best!
