SpoonDropped Candy Company was founded in 2016 to offer authentic, hand-crafted Louisiana confections to New Mexico. Owner Christian LeJeune was born and raised in southeast Louisiana and started making Louisiana confections with his family when he was a kid. SpoonDropped Candy Company will make its first major debut at the NM True Fest and will be offering two flavors of pralines: Traditional (Plain) Pecan Praline and the NM Red Chile Chocolate Pecan Praline. SpoonDropped Candy Company's pralines are made using organic unrefined cane sugars, local cream from Rasband Dairy (with no additives or thickeners such as carrageenan or gums), hormone-free unsalted butter, Louisiana and New Mexico pecans (seasonal), and pure vanilla extract. The NM Red Chile chocolate praline also contains Belgian chocolate, organic NM Hatch red chile powder, and organic Ceylon cinnamon. Ceylon cinnamon has the lowest levels of coumarin (almost none!) of all the cinnamons and is considered healthier for the body to process. Pralines are naturally gluten-free. Pralines are a delicious Louisiana delicacy on their own. They can also be used as a topping on ice cream, cakes, drinks, or mixed into other desserts. I hope that you enjoy my special gift to New Mexico and that it brings the soul and comfort of the Cajun culture to your tastebuds!
