  1. Zac's Sweet Shop - Zac Coughlin started his business when he was just 13 years old! Tasked with bringing treats to a holiday party, the then teen opted to dip strawberries and pretzels in chocolote instead of bringing some cookies from the grocery store. His treats were a hit and Zac's Sweet Shop was born! Today, he runs his business while finishing up his senior year of college at USC. He covers his dipped Oreos in only the finest chocolate.
  2. Bearclaw Kitchen - A lifelong baker and cereal lover, Sarah Lange started her first baking business as a teenager in Pennsylvania. After moving to Los Angeles, she became a pastry chef at a trendy restaurant in Hollywood and started making granola on the side. It was a hit and she now sells her granola around the city and ships nationwide. She uses local wildflower honey from Altadena, just outsode of Los Angeles, in her Honey Run granola!
  3. Rusty's Chips - Truly handmade potato chips, Rusty's Chips are made from fresh Bakersfield potatoes by hand, one at a time, with a small vegetable slicer. While most chip companies blanch and wash their potatoes to achieve a uniform white color, Rusty's just slices and cooks, giving each batch its own unique look and flavor. Each bag is even hand filled and hand sealed. Simple and natural!
