A couple of fun-loving food enthusiasts, Justin and Amanda Henke had spent months in their St. Paul kitchen, determined to make the perfect caramel. After countless pounds of butter and a few friendly squabbles, Justin happened upon Annie B's, a family-owned company of 35 years. He brought caramels home and a very pregnant Amanda ate 12 of them in one sitting (yep, she did). Together they concluded that these caramels were the epitome of buttery perfection, and completely unsurpassable.
Well, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Happily, Tom and Carol Bouquet - founders of Annie B's - were ready to retire and Justin and Amanda agreed to purchase Annie B's. This decision was made on the same day Amanda gave birth to their first child, a son named August. Big, big day. They officially took over the company in January of 2013, and have been having way too much fun ever since.
Justin and Amanda promise to maintain the cozy family-owned culture and careful small-batch cooking that make Annie B's caramels and popcorns so delicious. You can expect the same handmade quality you have grown to love. Cheers!
