1) Where do you source your ingredients?
I primarily source my ingredients from Oregon’s Willamette Valley and local Portland businesses. It’s always been my goal to support the farms and businesses near my home and I love that with all of the amazing products grown and made in this region, I’m able to do just that.
2) Tell us about a new product you are working on.
We have an ever-growing list of new caramel flavor ideas. Topping the list right now are a dairy-free option and something spicy!
3) What will our fans find at your booth this fall?
This fall, you’ll find our full array of caramels, plenty of samples, and perfect gift packages for the holiday season!
4) What are your goals for your business in the next year?
Our goals in the coming year are to launch at least two new caramel flavors, and to continue to expand our new brick and mortar location in McMinnville, OR. Our new venture is Bellevue Country Store, where we make all of our caramels and now offer an array of other local goods, coffee, cold drinks, pastries, etc…
We’re also beginning to work with local wineries to develop caramel and wine paired gift baskets!
5) What’s the best part of your job?
Easily, the best part of my job is all of the amazing people I get to meet and share my caramel and story with.
