Have you tried “it” yet? We have, and we’re so glad we did! Located in a brightly decorated shop in the Forestville section of Bristol, owner Karen has been selling her unique candies for about five years. She is very knowledgable about food allergies and always has gluten-free, sugar-free and vegan candy available. By special order she can also make:
- peanut-free carrageenan-free
So what is “it,” you ask? For their traditional candies, they use a base of blended peanut butter and chocolate with gluten-free brown rice and tiny marshmallows mixed in. Then they dip and drizzle each piece, adding in all sorts of fun stuff like potato chips, caramel, fruit, nuts, gluten-free pretzels, and even bacon! According to Karen, if you love it, they can dip “it” in it! She understands the risk of cross contamination, and, although her facility is not dedicated gluten free, she goes to great lengths to sanitize her surfaces and uses separate utensils for both her daily gluten-free offerings and for special orders. “it” is truly a labor of love for Karen, and she clearly loves what she does. She also loves decorating her shop for the seasons, so grab the kids and make a quarterly trip to Bristol to check “it” out!
*”it” Candy is not a dedicated gluten-free facility. Always use your own judgement when eating out.
