Eat, Drink And Be indie: Tasty Recipes, Inspiring Maker Stories & Exclusives Served Daily

Newfangled Confections

Carrie Abbott looks back on her childhood candy store memories with joy. She remembers picking her favorites: “peanut, caramel, lemon, cinnamon, chewy, and fruity.”

At Newfangled Confections in Indianapolis, Indiana, Carrie updates the ideas behind classic confections and repackages them in adorable, gift-worthy boxes. This packaging inspired Carrie’s Frittle, a sturdy but toothsome combination of rich fudge + salty brittle. Frittle is gluten-free (like all of Newfangled’s candies) and vegan, so we can all celebrate the vintage indie goodness.
