Food Entrepreneurs: Chay J's New Orleans Candies

The lovely Chay of Chay J's New Orleans Candies was kind of enough to drop by some of her delectable treats the other day. This New Orleans native got her sweet tooth from her father, a former candy store owner. After she lost her job, she took the opportunity to pursue her sugar plum dreams and launched her own business, even using some of her dad's original recipes.

Her Creole Pretzels are a super sweet combo of caramel, pecans and pretzels, which reminded me a praline with a nice balance from the salt. Her N'awlins Style Popcorn brings the same buttery caramel sweetness to popcorn.

Both snacks were imminently craveable and munchable and were a major hit in my office and at home. Mr. AT even went so far as to exclaim, "OMG, I could eat a whole pound of these." That's a ringing endorsement if I ever heard one!
