Featured Artist: Week of 09/28 - 10/04

What a wonderful way to start our artist feature…..with SUGAR and Keeping It Simply Sweet offers it by the box full.

Chocolate Coconut and Almond Clusters

The artist behind these simply sinful creations is Micki. She is the happily married mother of two boys from Tennessee.

Micki has taken and passed all of the required classes in her area in order to be a licensed food handler. All of her items are made in a Health Department inspected and passed kitchen. All of the items she makes are made with the finest ingredients available and no preservatives have been added to make them last longer.

Campfire Smores Gourmet Popcorn

All of Micki’s gourmet popcorn weighs at least 1lb, giving you lots of ooey, gooey goodness but be careful your….your family may devour it before you even know it has arrived.

I had a few questions for the popcorn queen and here is what she had to say:

1) How long have you been making gourmet popcorn, homemade marshmallows and candies? I started making them in April but didn’t start selling them until this summer.

2) Where do you get your inspiration from? Friends, Family and combinations that sound so good to me.

3) What does your family think about you gooey creations? Well they all have gained some weight since I started making goodies…lol

4) What is your favorite item that you offer? I really can’t pick any one item…I Love them all. I will not make something I will not eat myself.

5) How long have you been a member of Etsy? I joined around the first of the year, but the shop opened in April.

6) What is your favorite part about the Etsy community? The wonderful friends I have made.

7) Any funny candy/popcorn making fiasco’s? Well not popcorn..but lets just say that hard stage candy does not do well when it hits cold items….lol I’m still finding that sticky mess in places I would never have thought it would be.

Cinnamon Red Hot Homemade Marshmallows

By now I am sure you are drooling on your screen and ready to order one of everything but I wanted to provide you with one more thing that will convince you that this woman has some serious talent when it comes to sugary, sweet goodness….customer feedback. All of the feedback you are about to read are from real customers. ENJOY!

Delish!! Crispy and buttery sweet. Just the right amount of seasoning. Made the mistake of giving some to the kids, now I have to hide it!! I’m going to order a gooey chocolatey one next time. This would make a great gift for the popcorn lover.
Thanks so much KISS!


Oh, YUM. I mean YUM! Popcorn that is coated in ooey-gooey cinnamon-ey goodness…I love a good cinnamon roll, and now I have an entire batch of popcorn over which I can delude myself thinking it must be at least a little more nutritious than a Cinnabon, right? lol…even if it isn’t, it’s TOTALLY worth the indulgence! Complete, melt-in-your-mouth incredibleness.


Ahhh. Does it get any better than you? Tres fabu! To die for. Partner is noshing as I type this! You have no idea! I shall be back for more and more and more and did I say more? (smile). Perfect shipping!!


Delicious!! Your popcorn doesn’t disappoint! My daughter LOVES the cinnabonn with raisins gourmet popcorn, and thinks it;s such a special treat. She carefully eats out every plump little raisin first, and then savors the popcorn! Thanks for making such a yummy product for my daughter and I to share for some special time!

Lacking a sweet tooth? It’s alright, Micki has great popcorn for lovers of all things savory.

White Cheddar and Black Pepper Gourmet Popcorn

I hope you enjoyed our first feature as there are many more to come and I hope each of you take a moment to stop by Micki’s wonderful store!
