Have you heard of Sweet Mary's? They make the most delicious-looking treats like gourmet popcorn mixes, which are fresh popped popcorn drenched in chocolate and other flavors. Maybe you'd rather have something a little more healthy? Try one of their delectable apples. They take a ripe Fuji apple, enrobe it in caramel and drench it in chocolate. If that wasn't enough, Sweet Mary's gilds the lily just a bit more by drizzling the apple with colored and flavored chocolates.
It's not hard to see why they've quickly become a celebrity favorite! I recently had the chance to interview Mary. Here's what she had to say
Tell me about yourself.
I am #5 out of a family of 6 daughters. I grew up in a small town in Minnesota and lived there until I was 16 then my parents were tired of the cold so they moved me and my younger sister to Las Vegas. I currently live in Los Angeles with my three daughters. I love spending time with my family and friends, cooking, baking and dining out. I love to laugh and have fun and find amusement in almost anything. I moved to Los Angeles in August to pursue my dream of acting and realized I could build a business along side of my acting. Sweet Mary's is a perfect fit because I am passionate about sweets and I love how happy they make people when they eat them.
I got started making Sweets for holiday gifts about 7 years ago. I choose a few of my favorite treats and wanted to make them better! Before I knew it I was making over 150 apples for Halloween, 100 bags of White Chocolate Popcorn for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I helped my daughters school do a fundraiser with my apples and everyone loved them! Before I knew it I was getting requests to bring my treats to parties and get togethers. So this past November I decided to go for it and within two days of starting my business I was asked to make 150 apples for Jason Lee's wedding.
My Mother has a great way of seeing something she likes and then makes it better! I inherited this quality from her… I love to make delicious treats, so if I see something in a shop, a magazine, a food network show, a restaurant I want to know how to make it and then I add my own twist. I love spending time in the kitchen with women especially with women over the age of 65… They are so wise and have amazing secrets for baking, candy making and life in general. I have always had a sweet tooth so sometimes I just get a craving, go to the store and mix it up!
My "Sweets Mix" is my favorite because it is one I just threw together one day and my boyfriend Leif went crazy over it so I named it after him "Sweets." It was created while I was in the store wanting something salty, sweet and peanut buttery!
My dream is that Sweet Mary's will be a household name and be a brand everyone loves and gets excited about when they see them! When it's the holidays, a birthday or special event no party is a party without Sweet Mary's treats there. I have three daughters to raise and I want to teach them how to be strong, kind, independent, successful women. Sweet Mary's has already influenced them, they love to help and have business ideas of their own now. One day I am going to employ a lot of people and I will create schedules that help single moms to be able to provide a great income and be available to be there for their children.
I love to go to the spa! I am a skin care and make up nut. I love to listen to music, go to the movies with Leif and our girls, go for walks, eat out… especially for Sunday Brunch.

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. I have always wanted to know her or felt a connection to her. When I think of her I think of strength, elegance and beauty.
No questions WONDER WOMAN! I want her outfit, her crystal clear jet plane, her bracelets that deflect bullets and her gold rope that ties people up and makes them tell the truth!
