New Flavors on the Horizon?!

It's been a while since we brought out any new additions to This Charming Candy's lineup of awesome gourmet flavors. This year we're excited to explore new combinations, inspired in part by the fragrance world. We've been working on some secret stuff with Meredith from Sweet Anthem Perfumes...

And while we aren't ready yet to say anything specific - it's too early to have any idea what the end results might be - here are some of the behind-the-scenes photos I've been posting on Instagram.

The bottom photo there has my little lollipop coaster in it -- handmade by LASdesigns. It's so handy during taste-testing!

New Cottage Bakers Market

Next Saturday, May 4th, we'll be part of the new Cottage Bakers Market at the Northwest Arts Center in Bellevue. It's not often that we do events on the eastside, and we hope to see you there! Hours are 11 am - 4 pm, and parking is free.

The market will feature traditional as well as gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, and Paleo diet-inspired baked goods. Check this month's issue of Edible Seattle for an interview with CBM founder, Felicia. Nom!

Seattle Wedding Favors

Last month, local grooms J + B incorporated lollipops in a very clever way for their combination wedding favors & table assignments:
How very Seattle! 
These to-go style coffee cups are filled with local candies and topped with a Charming Candy sucker in the drinking spout. The custom handmade cup sleeves have a patch bearing their names & the wedding date. On the side of the cups, they inked the guest's name and table assignment. I love it!
