Sweet was founded by Dannah Davies in the summer of 2012. With modest beginnings, Dannah began cooking her candy at home and selling at a local farmer's market once a week. As a health conscious woman with dietary sensitivities, she saw an opportunity to both pursue her passion for experimental cooking and provide the much-needed reprieve from the uninspiring sweets available to those with wheat, soy, dairy and egg sensitivities.
Her handcrafted candy (all of which is based on a family recipe which she committed to memory as a teen) caught on fast. Soon enough she had quit her day job, rented a commercial kitchen and hired help to keep up with the demand.
In the time that Sweetsmith has been in operation, Dannah's candy has made its way into every market from Cochrane to Okotoks. She can be found at the Spruce Meadows International Christmas market, and various summer markets.
True to her curious nature, Dannah continues to expand on the original recipes so keep an eye out for new flavours to hit the shelves!
