Welcome to Candy Mentor!

Welcome to your home for confections.

Candy making is a craft that has been passed down from generation to generation. We are all Candy Mentors—we all have something to learn and something to teach! In this space, we celebrate confections and the many mentors, mentees, and passionate craftspeople who bring them to life. 

Candy Mentor brings the science of candy into one accessible place, helping professionals and enthusiasts across the industry thrive as candy makers. 

The science of confections has a long, documented history, but there has never been a dedicated portal for this sweet knowledge. That’s where we come in. Now, when you have a question about candy—the science, the process, the community—we’ll be here to support you. Whether you’re working from your home, in a candy start up, manufacturing at a plant or in a lab at one of the industry’s largest companies, Candy Mentor is your home for making the technical accessible. 

Our Vision.

Here at Candy Mentor, our aim is to provide a platform that breaks down the barriers to learning, making confectionary science accessible to individuals of oil skill levels and backgrounds. We strive to foster a supportive environment where members con gain knowledge, develop their skills, and connect with like-minded individuals who share a passion for the art of candy making.

How does it work?

The Candy Mentor site is a repository of confectionery knowledge to help candy makers everywhere learn more about the science behind their tasty treats. We offer a collection of digital articles on all things confectionery, as well as additional courses and community learning for those eager to learn more in our Candy on Demand community. Through connection and peer learning, we are extending the mentor-/mentee relationship that built the candy industry.
