Kathy from Kandi Treats had kindly approached me and asked if I wanted to review (not paid okay!) their latest product: Jellybeans. I was intrigued by the name and decided to take up the offer to review the products and also have a giveaway for my readers.
First up, some background info on Kandi Treats.
The first product, Jelly Bean, was conceptualized by the owner, Kathy Amurao-Herrera. One day while shopping at a bazaar, an idea sprang her mind that it would be great to only shop for JUST one item and be able to use it in several different types of wardrobe in several different ways. It would be nice to have an accessory that saves you a lot of money and shopping stress just because it is so functional. She started with ribbons as the basic element and soon came up with a simple accessory, which she then tried to reproduce and sell to a few friends.
She was able to show the first batch to several different people and had great feedback. That’s when she decided to sell their products to a bigger network. Hence KAnDi Treats was launched August 2010. The name KAnDi was from the names, KAthy Amurao-Herrera, ANdrea Castro & DIanne Cristobal-Correa.
Kandi Treats' has come a long way since their launch last 2010. They were featured in different tv shows, magazines and fashion blogs. They vow to showcase Filipino hand-made accessories all over the world.
I thought it was really innovative of her to create an item which can be used in so many ways.
