Established in 2012, Indianapolis, IN based, Newfangled Confections offers blast-from-the-past candy made with a dash of love and nostalgia. Candymaker Carrie Abbott’s modern take on grandma’s candy dish favorites is inspired by childhood memories including trips with her grandfather to Hook’s Drugstore in the late 1970s.
Carrie has been on the epicurean food scene since 2008. After an experiment gone deliciously right involving a peanut butter dessert for a reception she catered, her signature Frittle candy was born. Carrie whips up all of her delectable sweet treats including pralines, sweet and spicy pecans, and a variety of seasonal candies in Indianapolis, where she lives with her husband and two daughters.
