I'm Christina, the creator of Le Posh Pomme - Handmade Gourmet Caramel Apples and Gifts. I was born and raised in Baton Rouge, the great state of Louisiana and home to our awesome LSU Fighting Tigers! Caramel Apples have always been a favorite treat of mine growing up and has been my hobby for about 20 years. This has always been something I enjoy making for family and friends, and bringing to school functions throughout each year. Through these past years, it has been a wonderful blessing to watch my hobby blossom into a small business.
I started my small business after a life changing diagnosis over 13 years ago. After many years at home recovering from surgeries, treatments, and being wheelchair bound for over 8 months, my former career and passion of Interior Design came to an abrupt halt. The unwavering love and support from my family nutured me back to health and gave me the strength I needed to heal and succeed. With my new appreciation for life and newfound strength, I was determined to overcome this illness and not let it define me. I've always been a hard worker and love working with people. I decided to trade in my computer, floor plans, and finish boards for a pot filled with 'labor of love' homemade gourmet caramel that coated my beautifully decorated caramel apples. Interior Design has taught me about making our gourmet gifts visually appealing to the eye and pleasing customers with a wonderful and delicious tasting product as well! I just love watching the sugars and creams bubble up and smell like an old fashion candy shop. My love of candy making has evolved over the years with many other delectable treats that followed with suggestions from family, friends, and loyal customers.
I make everything from scratch using the finest ingredients and everything is completely custom decorated and tailored to individual Holidays and Special Occasions! I love the excitement from our customers when I deliver the smallest packages to our big beautiful displays of my gourmet treats at each one of their events! To see people enjoy my handcrafted treats is truly amazing because I know the love, the sweat, tears and the passion that go into everything I make.
