Sweet Inspirations Found Closer to Home
Thursday, September 27th, 2012

Consumers are looking for more natural products in every area of life and their candy choice is no exception.  According to Specialty Food Magazine, this years candy forecast includes more natural, less manufactured confections that have an artisan look and feel.   Consumers are looking for hand-made candies that are created in their own communities with local ingredients that offer interesting flavor choices.

By using honey as an all-natural sweetener candy confectioners have satisfied consumer cravings for handcrafted treats that are produced with ingredients that are found in their own backyards.

Artisan Chocolatiers can use local honeys in their creations to provide consumers with new choices and exciting new flavor profiles to indulge in.   B.T. McElrath Chocolatier offers a custom blend of Minnesota honey and chai spices covered in dark chocolate to create Chai-Spiced Honey Truffles.  Lake Champlain Chocolates are made from pure Vermont honey, kettle-cooked with sugars and fresh cream until golden, then cooled and placed by hand in a bed of rich dark chocolate.

Hand crafted artisan treats that are locally produced offer consumers candy options that are more natural and provide variety.
