The best things in life are sweet and Katie’s sweets are a treat to eat! Whimsical candy kabobs, chocolate lollipops, cupcake marshmallows and cake pops. A regular chocolate factory
The best things in life are sweet. That’s Katie’s motto at Candy by Katie. Katie is the woman behind unique and fresh candy kabobs. Which makes perfect sense. Why should meat and vegetables have all the fun? Candy should be on kabobs too! Candy kabobs morphed into Chocolate Lollipops, Cake Pops and Cupcake Marshmallows. Of course, with all that chocolate creativity it was hard to pin her down to tell us a little about her adventure into the chocolate life.
Candy by Katie products are like little pieces of edible art on a stick. The line is youthful and fun, putting a fresh spin on tradition chocolate and candy products. Katie explains, “I wanted to create a company that offered traditional edible items but with a new exciting edge. I was tired of seeing the same old thing and wanted to give people that one-of-a-kind gift that is just as fun to send as it is to receive.” All of Katie’s products as colorful and bright, that it almost feels like a shame to eat them. But once you bite into one, its hard to hold back. Most of Katie’s inspiration comes from growing up with parents who are immersed in the chocolate biz. In terms of fine chocolate, she has seen it all first hand. Her Mother and Father own, Swiss Fudge in Niagara Falls and it seemed natural for Katie to follow in their footsteps. But that’s where the similarity and connection ends, Katie is blazing her own path.
Working in the sweet chocolate and candy business Katie has noticed a simple equation, chocolate + candy = smiles. “I have never had a bad day at work and have never seen and unhappy person eat chocolate,” says Katie. And suddenly her family and friends are finding excuses to pop in on her at work, looking for a sweet reward. “I have found that more and more of my friends and family are visiting me at work these days.” But Katie doesn’t mind. In fact, she has embraced those unexpected drop ins. “I decided to create the role of ‘Director of Sampling’ to make them feel extra special for making the trek out to the office.”
The ‘Director of Sampling’ must have enjoyed their trials of Cake Pops. The homemade gourmet chocolate cakes are made the size of a lollipop, mixed with strawberry icing and dipped in creamy white chocolate. Finish it all off with oozing milk chocolate and sprinkles, on top of an ice cream cone. Yum! Or bite into a Cupcake Marshmallows with Fresh marshmallows on stick dipped in Belgian milk chocolate, topped with homemade French vanilla icing and sugary delights. Looking for something with a crunch? Try the Chocolate Pretzels- jumbo gourmet salty pretzels dipped in Belgian milk chocolate and drizzled with white chocolate. Tough life!
Candy by Katie is available at Swiss Fudge and various other retail locations in the Niagara area. Katie also specializes in custom made sweets for birthdays, chocolate wedding favours and fundraisers.
