Mel’s Toffee and Treats
Mel’s stands for Michelle (me) and our daughters Erin and Lauren. We couldn’t fit my husband’s name into the puzzle, so he became the “silent” partner.
Mel’s started out as a Chocolate Covered Pretzel Company. We evolved. The company evolved. Times changed. We became more focused. We are now an award winning, premium ingredient Michigan Made Toffee company. And…if you think that’s a mouthful, you need to try our handmade Michigan Made toffee. As the logo says, “One Bite is Never Enough…EVER”.
Gus and Grey
Growing up in Western Michigan, I was surrounded by farms of all types. The most amazing thing to me was the beauty of various crops. From corn, cherries, peaches, blueberries, beans, asparagus and much more…I loved the idea of growing food, harvesting, preparing and finally have it shared with the people around me. This endeavor has been a labour of love, and I want to thank every single person who takes the time to read what I have to say, and enjoy all that I prepare. Get your tastebuds ready, because Gus & Grey is ready to entice you!

After my daughter was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 6 years ago, I thought gluten free could be better. Better tasting. Food should not only be delicious but pretty to look at. My customers shouldn’t feel like they’re being left out or missing out. Food is social. It’s FUN. And, it should taste good whatever the dietary restriction. While everything I make is gluten free, I can also accommodate most other food allergies and intolerances. I use as many local ingredients as possible, (i.e. In season fruit) to make my own fillings, curds, and sauces. You can taste the difference. They can have their cake and eat it too!
Max’s Granola is named in honor of our son Max who was born with a brain disorder called Lissencephaly. Max has been an inspiration to all that know him and I wanted to create something for him that would be tasty, crunchy, and filled with wonderful goodness. Handcrafted organic oats, extra virgin olive oil, maple syrup, dried cherries and cranberries are what makes this granola wonderfully good. Enjoy by the handful. Eat by the mouthful.
High 5 Salts
The term “High 5” has multiple meanings. First, your tongue has 5 taste areas: sweet, tart, salty, bitter, and savory. Second, our salt blends are meant to be sprinkled from “on high” holding the salt above your food and seasoning by sight (when you see the salt on the food – that is probably enough). Last, there are 5 different types of salt blends in our High 5 line, they include: Original Unboring Salt, Power Lifter Bold Course Salt, Sweet Sass Sugar Blend, Tickled Pink Himalayan Salt and Fixer Upper Salt-Free Blend. Happy cooking! (And of course, seasoning properly).
Bella Rouge BBQ
“We believe that a huge key to making the perfect sauce is really understanding that barbecue is very personal, and Bella Rouge Barbecue strives to have a place at the family tables across the world with our personal recipe. If our first secret ingredient is love, the second is a simmering passion for Highland Park, Detroit and the Mitten State where our sauce is made – and the third is our joy of being in the coastal city of Charleston, South Carolina! We hope that our small batch sauce becomes a “beautiful red” dinner staple for you and your family to share and enjoy on EVERYTHING that you love – every single day.”

After testing out a few variations and witnessing the extremely positive reaction to the original recipe happen time and time again, we knew we had found a winning combination.
