Zlicious Confections

Matthew Walton founded Zlicious Confections (formerly Z Confections) in 2012 in Los Angeles, California, naming the business after his grandmother Zelda. Her salted caramel sauce was the inspiration at the heart of Matthew’s delightfully salty-sweet, air-popped caramel corns. Armed with that signature caramel recipe and a little air popper, Matthew left his 9-5 job in human resources to pursue zlicious creativity full-time!
