Welcome

Sue Gillerlain Sweeterville.com

Hi! Thanks for visiting this shiny new sweet spot. Every day you’ll find sweet recipes, party ideas, new candy and baking products, unique sweet shops, and creative people who are making the world a sweeter place, one chocolate chip at a time.

Sweeterville is by far the most adventurous chapter in my candy industry career. I’ve been a chief editor for a candy magazine, VP of communications and blogger for an online candy retailer, and now the sugar maven of Sweeterville. Gulp!

I started Sweeterville to combine my talent for creating online community with trend spotting, journalistic reporting, and industry knowledge about all things sweet.

It’s been such a fun ride launching this site. I’ve had mind-blowing support from my family, friends, industry members, and Web designer. I’m more than grateful for this mighty village, and I can’t wait to roll up my sleeves to write a fresh new chapter on these pages.

Onward ho, baby!
