My name is Rebecca Edgett. I started New England Candy Company because I loved making candy in my spare time. I took some of my favorite foods like bacon, chocolate, and peanut butter and started experimenting with different combinations.
At first I just made the candy for my family and friends, but then I started getting more and more orders. I started selling my candy on Etsy and made a website.
Then something crazy happened. A site called Uncrate featured my giant peanut butter and bacon cups. After that I couldn't keep up with orders. My candy was featured on many websites including Fark and Thrillist. The Toronto Star newspaper in Canada wrote a story about our candy. Our candy has also been on Good Day NY, ABC and CBS.
Our candy is still handmade in small batches using the best ingredients.
