A lifelong gummy and licorice aficionado from rural Pennsylvania, our founder Andrea (aka Sweetcicle) was inspired to craft her own take on confections. After studying in Sydney, she'd fallen hard for Australian chewy candy, but wanted to make it modern by concentrating on out-of-the-ordinary flavors, ingredients that look familiar and a soft delicate texture that is easy to eat. So Andrea tested, retested, and re-retested recipes in her tiny New York City kitchen. The days were long, and her aprons grew spattered, but the visions of tempting sweets she'd feel good about eating, kept her focused on her quest; and now, voila! Sweetcicle's Soft Chews are here for you to enjoy. Our products are handmade and manufactured in Long Island City.
