SweetE's owner Elana has created this very special place so that anyone with dietary sensitivities (and those without) can enjoy sweet treats just like everyone else. Elana and her team love to assist with all needs and offer suggestions based on specific food sensitivities.
You'll only find candies and chocolates made with care, including organic, fair trade, kosher and vegan products, and they even make their own eco slushEs! Elana and SweetE Organic are deeply connected with their community, and they donate to 20 local organizations to promote prosperity for their neighbors. Sweetness truly is their specialty; it's a place where everything is done with care and everyone is welcome.
Mission Statement: "SweetE has been referred to as “candy with a cause” & "candy with a conscience" by our clients, which makes us blush! SweetE was created to be an inclusive environment since food allergies and special diets have become so prevalent. The whole undercurrent of SweetE rests on philanthropic and eco-friendly ideals. Our vendor partners are selected based not only on product quality, but their company mission as well. Our mission: To offer quality treats to suit all diets and preferences, because everyone deserves a treat!"
