We – Kate and Susan – started This Charming Candy in 2009 to bring happiness to the world in the form of sugar on a stick. We're a handcrafted candy company known for unique, delicious hard candy lollipops in brilliant colors. We curate sophisticated flavors into themed collections such as the Spice Rack (Vanilla-Cardamom, Tangerine-Clove, Salted Caramel) and the Breakfast Tray (Blueberry Muffin, Sweetened Grapefruit, Maple sugar).
We met in graduate school in the late 1990’s. We’ve both been mathematicians, librarians, and have worked in user-centered roles in big high-technology companies (including Amazon.com, Microsoft, and Yahoo!) before deciding to go into business together. We love to cook, so it’s no surprise to our families and friends that we’d choose to do something culinary.
