As soon as we find out someone is a [slightly obsessive] candy-making expert, we’re happy. And isn’t this timely? Right here in OC, a candy cane maker lives among us! You could call Robin Reichelt an overachiever [perfect]. She is a full-time consultant to giant food brands, she creates pottery and three months out of the year, she smells like candy canes.
At her nostalgia-filled site, you can get a feel for her mission to revive old school-style holiday spirit. Robin hand makes peppermint candy garlands for your home or Christmas tree. With an old fashioned candy cane recipe and a traditional copper kettle, she creates peppermint “doodles” that can be linked together to form a garland, or candy chain. She sells garland in boxed trays, and a box holds 7 feet of candy chain! In keeping with the “retro” spirit, each garland is packed on a reproduction of a vintage holiday card. Each box costs $45. Free delivery in OC.
