Sweet Halloween Folk Art
Louise Ferrari, owner and the Sweet Lollipop Shop is so fond of Halloween folk art that she's created a line of tasty lollipops that are perfectly suited to the season.
Here's what this folk artist has to say about her folk art confections:
I've always had a love of Halloween and a passion for handmade, so what better combination than applying both in the creation of sweet crystal barley hard candy lollipops, themed perfectly for this spooky time of year. I have a tendency to go with the flow when it comes to deciding what shapes and flavors I want to introduce and I'm very visual in nature so for me tasting good simply isn't good enough, they have to look fabulous. With this in mind I especially enjoyed making the wicked witch lollipops this year, adding just that little bit of extra green to give her that evil feel of Dorothy's nemesis in the Wizard Of Oz. The large size adds to her appeal as do her wickedly chiseled features that include the hooked nose and pointy chin and just for that added realism, water really will make her melt!
Of course there are lots of fun shapes this year, the haunted house with it's intricate detailing is particularly interesting and more unusual than the more regular choices of ghosts and skulls. Of course there is nothing wrong with a regular choice, the opaque ivory skulls in delicious vanilla bean flavoring have a great look to them that is more unique due to the fact that it doesn't have the translucent look of the regular lollipops, a look a little more difficult to create but definitely worth it.
As a big fan of haunted houses, horror movies and anything Halloween related, creating scary lollipops is one of my favorite things to do. Quality and flavor is also very important, everyone has different tastes and I enjoy to be able to cater to as many varied ones as possible. I never use any preservatives and can custom make any order with entirely natural ingredients. With over 50 available flavors, more than 20 being introduced that are entirely natural including my most popular flavor strawberry and more than 20 Halloween shapes currently in stock, there are at least 1000 possible choices you can make for a deliciously sweet Halloween.
