Liddabit was founded with the idea that candy shouldn’t have to be such a guilty pleasure! With an abiding love for all things fresh and seasonal, the two founders set out to create candy bars, jellies, lollipops and other treats that not only taste wonderful, but support local growers and producers, thereby strengthening the community at large. Their products are delicious, unique, and made with pride. They love what we do, and believe that you can taste the difference.
Liz Gutman and Jen King befriended each other while attending the French Culinary Institute’s pastry program. Realizing a shared passion for sustainably produced, fresh, superior-quality ingredients and sweets, their talk of starting a business together became a reality in early 2009. After gaining a vendor slot at the famed Brooklyn Flea Market and garnering some early publicity, Liz and Jen are humbled and thrilled to be lucky enough to spend their time sharing their love of sweets with their unbelievably awesome customers. Liz also spent 2 years writing for the James Beard Award-winning blog Serious Eats.
