What is Treatsie?

Candy is a simple pleasure, but savoring it can be an exceptional experience. There are thousands of masterful confectioners all over the U.S. and the world making chocolates, caramels and many other unique sweet treats. However, even candy enthusiasts who actively seek quality confections usually only find the larger, more commercial brands. Plus, despite having desirable products, many candy businesses struggle with low margins and a geographically limited revenue stream of a brick-and-mortar operation. Even those who have a web presence rarely have the time to market the company to its fullest potential.

That’s where Treatsie comes in. Think of us as an online-dating site for those who have a love affair with chocolate. We take the exhausting search process off your hands and deliver a carefully curated box of candy from ever-changing artisans to your door for only $15 a month.

And it gets better. Rather than sending a printed card describing the treats, we’ll post all the info about each month’s candies through our website and apps. Not only does this allow you to connect, share and discuss with other Treatsie members, but each candy includes a bio about the company that made it AND a link to buy more.

We have two main goals:

1. We want to expose people to an amazing confectionery experience.

2. We will encourage growth in the artisan confectionery industry by providing a unique outlet for truly exceptional candy.

Where the money will go:

1. Packaging, great candy needs great packaging

2. Legal Fees

3. Spreading the word about great candy


***Update***

We have had several requests for a new level of reward. In response to those who are interested in receiving an annual subscription with none of the other goodies, we have added our Feedback Special. Backers at the $200 level can now get a 12 month subscription, plus the Beta Box! That's 13 boxes in total! Keep the feedback coming.

Risks and challenges

Our first risk would be that people stop liking candy.
We have sourced the material for the project, but potential delays could always occur with the items that will need to be custom-printed. We won't ship items that don't meet our standards.
