So you already know this, but I love my sweets! When Dunkin' Donuts announced they were coming to California, it caused a huge stir and I was so excited to try out my new hometown shop. In fact, you may have heard that there were lines around the block with old and new fans alike! I'm still figuring out my favorite item on the menu, so I'm due back for many return trips. Do you have a fave?
So what am I sharing with you today? If you are lucky enough to have a location nearby, you might already know about the DD Perks program. If not, let me give you a quick rundown. It is especially good for everyone who makes Dunkin' Donuts a part of their normal morning routine, and peeps like me who are menu explorers! Also, there is an extra perk for everyone who signs up by December 5th, that you'll definitely want to hear about!

Take a look at all of the gorgeous creations and see all of the creative flavors. My favorite flavored sugar might just be the unicorn poop... for real!
Also, make sure to entire the giveaway below for a Soiree Box with a dozen spoons of the latest flavors and sugar drops. Sweet!
Tell me a little bit about yourself!
My background is in design and marketing. I'm a brand development consultant by day and a sugar peddler by night! I've always been obsessed with beautiful packaging and really well designed products. I frequent at craft stores and can get lost in the aisles of 'possibility' for hours! I've always been an experimenter in the kitchen and love any excuse to share homemade treats with friends and family.
Where did the name of your store come from?
There's nothing cozier than a sweet hug or a loving snuggle from people you love. As cheesy as it sounds, the name 'Spoon Me Sweetly' was inspired by my boyfriend, who in fact spoons me sweetly; I wanted to recreate that ooey-gooey-mushy feeling into a sweet and edible experience...and we do desserts and sweeteners on spoons, which is a double meaning win-win!
Why did you start making goods for Spoon Me Sweetly?
Being from Los Angeles, it's so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of work, commuting, juggling schedules, etc. Rarely do you have a chance to sit at a coffee shop, read a book, and enjoy a little treat – taking a moment for yourself comes too infrequently and often times you feel guilty doing so. Spoon Me Sweetly are conveniently packaged desserts on a spoon, you can indulge without being over indulgent...it's just a spoonful.
What is your favorite item?
I love our signature honey dipped spoons! They are the product we launched with before we got into the crazy flavor combos with chocolate, flavor extracts, etc. I always grab 2, one for my tea and one to just enjoy right off the spoon! They're made with organic clover honey and cane sugar, simple and delicious.

Mid-week, I went to the Crave Expo, a food expo with a fun mix of chefs, event planners, media, and individuals looking for inspiration.
I was just a bit more interested in the food than anything else, of course. :)
However, I found some great desserts that may be destined for my sister's engagement party, bridal shower, or wedding some time soon!
It was a fun time with some serious party atmosphere!
