These are "The Grannies."
You might recognize them from this show:
They make this candy:
Their company started in their basement, and is located in
Yelm is where Nicki and JW live. And their son, Logan, works for the grannies.
Before they left this morning, Nicki brought in a bag filled with tins of Ice Chips so I could taste them, and JW told the story of the grannies.
You can watch them on "Shark Tank" here, at the Ice Chips website,
to get their story yourself.
It's pretty cool.
The candy is made with Xylitol, a natural sweetener from Birch trees,
and it's actually beneficial for dental hygiene, and recommended for diabetics.
Ice Chips come in about 20 flavors so far.
I tried Root Beer Float, Lemon, Peppermint, and Pina Colada.
Yum. All of them.
As if I wasn't already thrilled that Nicki and JW came for a visit.
