Cool Confectionaries was founded by Susan Benjamin, a former communications strategist, professor and researcher. She has published countless articles, was quoted in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and many other publications, and has appeared on numerous television and radio outlets. Her interest in how food was marketed to women, addressed in her ninth book “Flash” (Adams, 2011), plus numerous serendipitous events, lead her to research candy history. She was amazed to find that relationship between medicine, culture, industry, women and food, warfare …and so much more! And that the flavors were more complex and remarkable than most imagine. Plus, having spent 25 years training professionals, she recognized that candy offered a uniquely visceral approach to history. Hence the True Treats line of historic candy was born.
