Calabasas Candy Review & Giveaway

Pin It

I was browsing Etsy.com & came across this gem of a shop.

Unique, HANDmade candies & truffles. Yuuuuum.

So I contacted Cheri of Calabasas Candy & asked if I could plleeeeease sample some of her delish merchandise. She agreed & BOY was it amazing.

She sent me a nice bag full of Lavendar Caramels, soo good!! I received them wrapped up so pretty, with a ribbon tying them closed.

Cheri makes all these candies by herself! Here's an excerpt from her etsy profile...

My name is Cheri mother of two and married to my
wonderful husband! I'm a self taught artist who has always loved art and cooking. In my first business I combined the two and started out my career as a caterer specializing in hors d' overes. After catering, I just concentrated on art and became a designer of gift items and jewelry for many years.

Last year I retired from designing and returned to my other love which is cooking. I started making candies as gifts for friends and family. When I gave some to the school counselor, she said that I had missed my calling and should make candies for a living. Well, I decided to listen to her, but did'nt know where I would sell them. My daughter told me about Etsy and set up a shop for me. I really love selling on Etsy and all the wonderful customers and friends I have made. Fellow sellers and customers have been so helpful and encouraging along the way. Thank you so much for visting my shop!

 I'm telling you, these would make fabulous Christmas gifts....

Yeah, I bet you're craving some now, aren't you??

Oh wow, she sure does make some gorgeous stuff!! Like...too pretty you don't want to eat it, lol.

I am really leaning towards the Pistachio Nougat or the Coffee Marshmallows. I believe I will be making a purchase for the stockings this year ;o)
