About this project
Congratulations, you've found the sweetest, best-tasting Kickstarter page around. Savor Sweets are candies that are unique, unusual, and completely delicious. Using natural ingredients and small batches, we create suckers (lollipops, sticky-pop, lolly, stickpop, whatever you care to call them) in unique flavors, using whole ingredients sourced as locally as possible and packaged in fully biodegradable packaging.
Your Kickstarter donation / pre-order funds will go towards our initial production run. This will include:
- Renting time in a commercially-approved kitchen
- Purchasing lots and lots of candy molds, as well as compostable packaging, labels, and sticks; pots, measuring equipment, and thermometers to make sure we don't burn ourselves on the sugary equivalent of napalm.
- Buying the ingredients for the first run, including organic evaporated cane juice, ingredients to flavor with, and lemons to juice.
Yes, you read that ingredient list right. Most of our candies have just three main ingredients - organic evaporated cane juice, a tiny bit of lemon juice, and whole ingredients for flavoring. None of that bottled "flavoring oil," we're talking basil and mint from the farmer's market, small-batch balsamic vinegar, locally-roasted coffee. The good stuff. No corn syrup, no artificial preservatives and no artificial flavorings are to be found anywhere near this candy. The packaging we will be using is comprised of recycled paper printed with soy ink, biocompostable cellophane bags and organic compostable ribbon made in the USA. When you're done with your treat, you can throw everything into your compost pile or yard waste bin.
In short, quality ingredients, sustainable packaging, and flavors you can't get anywhere else.

- Black Tea
- Chai Tea

Here's what you get in return for your support:
Your Kickstarter donation functions as a pre-order for our first production run, at prices lower than you'll be able to buy them once they're out in the world. You get more than just tasty sweets, though. We'll throw in a few extras, depending on which level you donate at:
Custom Flavors: You tell us what flavor of hard candy you want, and we will do our best to make it work.We can't promise EVERY flavor will work - we are dealing with real whole ingredients instead of manufactured extracts or oils, but we're confident we can make your dream flavor come to reality. You'll get a full batch (about 15 suckers) per flavor. We'll even create custom labels for you.
Savor Sweets Stickers: High-quality decals that can be put on just about anywhere. Your vehicle, your bicycle, your walls -- the decals will stick to any hard, smooth surface and come off without doing any damage.
**All shipped rewards can be sent to U.S. mailing addresses. Contact us for international shipping.
