A local family is presenting a new twist to the candy business.

A local family is presenting a new twist to the candy business.


The new business Just Freeze It Sweets has been operating by the Laing family and they have been selling the candy online and at various vendor fairs in the region.


“We make freeze dried candy,” explained Stephen Laing.


Laing explained they have a machine that removes the moisture from the candy that they purchase and “now it’s light and crunchy.” They purchase different types of candy including Skittles, Jolly Ranchers, salt water taffee, Gummy Bears and Gummy Worms among others and put those into the machine.


“We put it in the machine and it does its job,” said Laing.



Laing, his wife Crystal and their three daughters help operate Just Freeze It Sweets with the idea originating with youngest daughter Skylar. Laing said she was already involved with selling stickers and bracelets and wanted to take the next step.


“It was her idea,” he said. “She saw it on Tik Tok and YouTube.”


Laing said he is regularly up until 11:30 p.m. packaging the freeze dried candies and back up again at 5 a.m. doing the same thing.


“It’s a non-stop gig but it’s worth it,” he said. “It’s a family-run business.”


Noting he also operates a farm, Laing added he attends the Downtown Windsor Farmers Market every other Saturday where he also brings bags of candy to sell. There are “various shows throughout the county” he also has registered for, Laing added.


“I have a full calendar this summer,” he said.
