There’s something about sinking your teeth into a sweet treat that takes you back to your childhood. Mollycoddled Hash Slinger, an artisan sugar confections company, takes that feeling to the next level by bringing cherished, classic desserts — and their old-school recipes — back into the spotlight.
And just like in the past, the company favors quality over quantity.
“Our confections are cooked in small batches, hand cut and hand packaged using high quality pure ingredients,” owner Melissa Wedman said.
In addition, Mollycoddled Hash Slinger wears its Oklahoma heritage on its sleeve, and makes a point to source local ingredients.
“We also believe that small businesses thrive on relationships, and it’s our goal to grow deep relationships with not only our customers but our suppliers as well,” Wedman said.
A huge factor in bringing back that “made with love” sentiment is the product packaging. The company contemplated many packaging options for their artisan caramels, but landed on a kraft cardboard box with custom stamps for a cost-effective choice with brand-leaning style.
“A friend mentioned a rubber stamp to achieve our urban/artisan appeal,” said Wedman. “After researching custom rubber stamp companies online, we felt the reviews left by prior customers and pricing of RubberStamps.com fit us the best.”
In addition to FDA food manufacturing guidelines, each side of the cube packaging features a stamp impression to tell the story of Mollycoddled Hash Slinger and give it an identity. Wedman says this stamped box plays a huge factor in the success of the company.
“Branding is instrumental in business growth today, and our packaging really allows us to expand on that,” she said.
Mollycoddled Hash Slinger’s treats may be traditional, but the appreciation is definitely contemporary.
