Spoon Me Sweetly feature & GIVEAWAY!

I had the pleasure of meeting the sweet ladies of Spoon Me Sweetly at Artisanal LA a few months ago.  Besides the fact that I was super excited to find something perfect for my sister's engagement party, I had to feature the pretty little creations on Shop Small Saturday Showcase!

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.




What is your most popular item?


Our Sweet Elvis - banana cream dipped spoon with a solid peanut butter heart and mini peanut butter cookie. We had no idea that this would be a hit...we just have a thing for banana and peanut butter!


Where do you get the inspiration for your work?

Everywhere and anywhere! I lay in bed looking at food pictures on Instagram and recipes on Pinterest for hours! My circle of loyal taste-testers are also really awesome when it comes to the experimenting process! When they say "why don't you try..." I don't question it, I make it; then make them eat it!




What makes your store unique?

We literally wear our hearts on our spoons! Everything we make is assembled by hand and packaged with a lot of care and attention to detail. We're all about the entire experience – the packaging, the names of our products, the tasty flavor combos!


What is the toughest part about making your goods/your artistic process?

We're still growing and testing out processes and production techniques. Sometimes all you want to do is experiment with flavors, but there's still the important business paperwork and inventory stuff to take care of (can you tell which side of the brain we are?!)




Do you take custom orders?

We definitely welcome custom orders! We love themes, special occasions, girly get-togethers and grown-up tea parties! Contact us at info@spoonmesweetly.com to chat about your special order.


Where can I see more of your work and buy a gift?
