Originally there was little hope that I would learn to cook
at all after burning Rice Krispie Treats as a teenager.
I am Julie Sloan.....born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, went to college and grad school in Arizona, married with two teenage boys, and have an insatiable love of cooking and baking.
In 2002, our little family moved into a North Central Phoenix neighborhood filled with the best kind of neighbors anyone could ask for. Every year at Christmastime our street is lined like a beautiful runway with luminaria and we exchange small, hand-made gifts with neighbors, usually food related. It was this time of year that I began to experiment with sea salt caramels. After much tweaking, the recipe had been perfected and was ready for giving. In December of 2014 my caramels found their way into the home of a friend and I was asked and encouraged to supply bags for a Superbowl event for a large national corporation. Not really sure this was something I was ready for, I accepted the challenge anyway. In January of 2015, I officially launched Sweetish Treats and it has been a whirlwind of a ride, going above and beyond where I ever dreamed it would go.
I have had caramels land in the hands of some pretty amazing people and in some pretty incredible places. Every single person who I have encountered as a customer has been nothing but encouraging, complimentary, and just plain nice! What more can I ask for? I am doing what I love and selling to people who continue to make me love what I do. How can hearing "these are the best caramels I have ever eaten", "I have never liked caramels...until now", and "ohmygosh they are sooooooo good" ever get old? I cannot imagine it ever will. Until then, I will continue to make each batch of Sea Salt Caramels with the utmost care and passion (and promise not to burn them), knowing they will be gobbled up and enjoyed by all!
