Liz Gutman and Jen King became friends while attending the French Culinary Institute’s pastry program. Sharing a passion for locally produced, superior-quality ingredients and a love for (okay, obsession with) sweets, they opened Liddabit Sweets in 2009. They both live, eat, and dream in sugar in Brooklyn, New York.
Chocolate Mint Meltaways. PB&J Cups. Chai Latte Lollipops. Cherry Cordials, Spicy Pralines, and the cult favorite, Beer and Pretzel Caramels. Plus candy bars--the Twist Bar, the Nutty Bar, the Coconut-Lime Bar, inspired by commercial favorites (Snickers, Twix) but taken to new heights of deliciousness.
