About

Sugar and Crystals and Sparkle, oh my!

Sweet Caroline Confections was certainly a sweet accident. I had been making jewelry for about 2 years, and loved doing craft shows and art fairs. Fast forward to Halloween 2012: the largest craft fair in Ft. Lauderdale was right around the corner and I wanted to create something both sweet and eye-catching as a giveaway for our jewelry customers to enjoy. I decided to make lollipops. I had no molds, and didn't make any special flavors. But despite that, our customers LOVED our candies (jewelry? what jewelry?!). I left jewelry behind and decided to pursue candy making, hard candy lollipops to be exact.

A little over FIVE years later.... (Sweet Caroline Confections was established in 2012 in Miami, Florida), our business is doing better than ever. 100% of our business is internet based. We ship all over the world, and have worked closely with high end clients such as Martha Stewart's very own Darcy Miller, Bumble and Bumble, Hayley Paige, Today.com, Brides Magazine, Marc Jacobs, Cynthia Rowley's Curious Candy, Miu Miu, GUESS, to mention a few (see them all here->http://www.sweetcarolineconfections.com/#!pressandmedia/c7h8)

We are currently working on opening up a storefront in beautiful Denver, Colorado. We have so many plans and goals for the next few years of our business, we feel like a small storefront in a good area would be the next step to growing our business. This makes us very excited as we love interacting with our customers (when we do shows and fairs).

We truly have a passion for what we do.
Let us create something unique and amazing for your next event.

May your day Sparkle,

Andrea Caroline and Team

__________________________________________________

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I PLACE MY ORDER?

We always suggest that you place your order as soon as you can. We book several months in advance, and since most of the orders that we receive have a delayed delivery date, there is a chance that we may get fully booked for the month that you are ordering for. Placing your order as soon as you can ensures that you will have a reserved place in our orders queue for that month.

All lollipops are fresh and made-to-order, therefore, all lollipops, including flavor samples, are sold in a minimum of 6 lollipops per flavor/design/size.
___________________________________________________

ARE THE IMAGES IN YOUR LOLLIPOPS EDIBLE? ARE THEY OUTSIDE OR INSIDE THE LOLLIPOP?

Yes, the images are 100% edible, and they go inside of the candy.
