Bellas Candy Shoppe, Chopped, & Inspection Report

As promised, not only do we want to be a completely open, honest, and transparent candy company, we want to be YOUR Candy Company! After-all, we make things you love to eat, Oddly Delicious, Freeze-Dried Candy. As the first, Registered Freeze-Dried Candy Company in the state of Arizona, we have a lot to live up to. While there are now many others who are following in the silent shadows of our achievements, we can still say we are the BIGGEST and best. And with over 120 different flavors of Freeze-Dried Candy (seasonal), we can easily back up that claim.

Our success with the Arizona Cottage Law registration has allowed us to turn into a registered Limited Liability company, Lil Bellas LLC, DBA Bellas Candy Shoppe, where we utilize a Commercial Kitchen in downtown Phoenix under the guidance of Food Network’s Chopped Champion, Tommy D’Ambrosio. Tommy says our Freeze-Dried Candy is definitely a TOP Champion. Tommy’s guidance, friendship, and genuine love of our Freeze-Dried Candy makes us proud to do what we do.

As a food manufacturer, there are many hoops to jump through and ladders to climb. Today was not an exception for Lil Bellas LLC (Bellas Candy Shoppe). We had our first, on-site health inspection where we were assigned a “Letter Grade”.  We had to hold up on some production while we waited for the Maricopa County Inspector to get to us, but she was a nice lady and the wait was well worth it. We got an A. 🙂

Again, we would like to thank everyone at BLT Kitchens, for helping us make this dream a reality, but most of all, we want to thank you, our dear customer, for coming back time and time again for more of Arizona’s Best Freeze-Dried Candy.
