My Richmond trip’s ginger finds did not end with ginger ale and ginger beer – it only started. My trip around Carytown found me in the store of For the Love of Chocolate. The store is filled from East to West – North to South with candies.
One of the corners of the store is devoted to ginger based candies. I perused the candy options, and found Ginger Extreme. The candies are made by Hillside Candy. Hillside Candy is a thirty year old boutique candy maker that makes Organic Hard Candies which are Gluten free. Hillside is also certified Organic and certified GMO free.
The candies are made with cane sugar, ginger oil, ginger powder, brown rice syrup and cayenne powder. Yes, you read correct – cayenne powder. The flavor is awesome. The hard candy is amazing. I would highly recommend the candies.
