Lisa and Gretchen have always loved candy!
The toffee is Lisa’s family’s recipe. Lisa’s grandparents owned a candy business in Chico for many years and Lisa grew up running around the almond orchards and the candy warehouse as a child. Her family still makes our “claim to fame” toffee during the holidays.
Gretchen grew up in Leucadia with laid back hippy-type parents who both love to cook and eat. her father, Jim, lost his sense of taste from radiation for throat cancer, but never lost his love of food. Jim and Gretchen made up some interesting concoctions of liquor, cream and sugar to try to satisfy his sweet tooth. Gretchen started making caramel because her dad loved how it felt in his mouth. Making caramel reminds Gretchen of her dad.
We’ve added a twist to our heirloom recipes…SEA SALT! You will be amazed with the addition carefully selected sea salts to our toffee and caramel. We’ve achieved the perfect balance of sweet and salty. We call this new creation California Toffee…You’ll call it DELICIOUS!
Just like Gretchen, Sea Salt Candy Company was born in Leucadia, California. A small beach community in northern San Diego County, Leucadia is a flower mecca and surfer’s paradise. Although tourists flock to San Diego, this little village has managed to hold on to its laid back attitude and funky charm. Sea Salt Toffee and Caramel is a tribute to those laid back days and funky ways!
