Wine, Chocolate, & Romance Weekend – Daily Program

Featured Vendors

At Sweet Jules Gifts we’ve taken the hands-on approach to candy making by personally crafting and perfecting signature ingredients valued for their unique flavors. We are confident that by putting in a little extra time and effort, we can deliver the truest flavors and showcase the very best in FRESH candy. Our caramels are made with Minnesota cream and butter with no additives or preservatives.

Sweet regards,

Hope Klocker
