World Allergy Week
Do you know why we don’t use Peanuts or Tree Nuts?
These items have a hi incidence of allergy reactions.
I myself (Kat) am allergic to Tree Nuts.
So many people have allergies so severe that even a hint of peanuts could be fatal. So we stick to Almonds. A misunderstood and miscategorized fruit among a bunch of nuts.
Homemade Candy with no Preservatives tends to melt in the sun.
We’ve had great success at fairs and festivals in the past few months. We’ve already paid to do a dozen more events this year and have been accepted into a local Farmer’s Market. Sadly, our Pop-Up tent has pooped out! Wind and use has bent most of the upper support. We need a new one to keep our gooey chocolate candies (and us) from melting in the endless California sun.
Please consider donating to help us get a new Tent and you will get candy or handmade toys in time for Christmas!
Can’t afford to donate, sharing and liking our project on Indiegogo will help us get seen by more people!
Even just clicking on the link can improve our ranking to give us exposure… Thank you in advance. http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/keep-the-candy-cool-the-kandy-jar/x/5092253
It occurred to me that a bit of history may be a good thing to share. So here’s where it all came from.
It all starts with a little boy growing up eating a chocolate fudge recipe given to his mother by his kindergarten teacher. He helped make the fudge for years until mom said “I’m tired..you make it!” It sparked an interest in deserts (read created a chocoholic) and so he expanded on that recipe and learned to make more sweets for himself.
As an adult, when times were thin, he decided candy was a great way to give family and friends Christmas gifts (maybe in an attempt to keep those family and friends from getting thin, themselves). They were such a hit, the next year people complained about getting regular gifts again. And from there it flourished because like us, our friends wanted candy year-round. He knew he had something!
Today the candy recipes have expanded to include so much more than just chocolate. OK let’s face it; it’s still a lot of chocolate. And now he has a partner and a daughter to share the candy making. Now we can share it with you and your friends and family!
Philosophers say take time to smell the roses.
Nutritionists will tell you that you shouldn’t eat too fast.
At The Kandy Jar, we think they’ve got it all wrong.
EAT IT NOW! And keep eating it fast.
Our candy isn’t meant to last you weeks on a shelf.
It’s fresh and yummy and should be eaten as soon as you get it.
Because we don’t use preservatives. There’s no chemical mixture that makes it able to travel in a semi-truck and then sit on a shelf for weeks or months!
It’s fresh and ready to be eaten when it gets to you. And we recommend you eat it fast.
Because we’ve found that if you don’t eat it fast, someone else will find it and eat it for you.
