Who we are and why we started our business:

Piper Cochrane is a mother that is very conscientious about what her daughter and her family eat. When her daughter, Ginger, decided that she wanted to open a candy store (every child's fantasy), mom decided that it had to be Organic.

"We all like sweets, but with all the junk candy out there. It had to be better! I noticed that so many children have candies that are full of dyes, chemicals, toxins, Gelatin (otherwise known as horse hoof, animal bones and chemicals) and more. We offer the alternative”!

One invisible difference between refined white sugar and organic sugar hides in the glycemic index (GI): white refined sugar has a GI of about 80, and organic sugar has a GI of 47. On the glycemic index scale, that's a pretty significant difference!
