Wee Sweetie continues to collect awards for its range of handcrafted sweetie products, including second place in the Producer of the Year category of the Dumfries & Galloway Life Awards 2018.
The magazine's write-up for my business says:
"Donna Bradley launched her business in Dumfries in March 2014, making a range of traditional boiled sweets, fudges and toffees from her kitchen at home.
The sweeties are all hand-made, often using locally sourced ingredients and Donna has won prestigious Great Taste Awards for her Naked Fudge, Honey Fudge and Sarsaparilla boiled sweeties.
Her seasonal menus (for Easter, Hallowe’en and Christmas) are always eagerly anticipated by sweetie fans.
Donna has worked hard to build up her business and offer great customer service.
Summing up the views of numerous nominators, one said: 'Donna is a sugar magician. She’s single-handedly built an award-winning business using local ingredients, innovative flavours and traditional techniques.'
Donna has also spent time helping refugees in Athens, including teaching some youngsters to make sweeties."

Wee Sweetie Naked Fudge was the only fudge in Scotland to win 2 Stars.
Donna Bradley commented: “It's a huge achievement and I'm absolutely over the moon! I entered the Naked Fudge because it's the basis of every single fudge I make as well as being a very popular flavour.”
The judges comments were: "Proper, traditional, not-mucked-about-with, as-it-should-be, delicious fudge! In a world of matcha and salted caramel, it is a treat to taste something that relies on the quality of the raw ingredients. Simple ingredients cooked well! We could have eaten a lot more. Well done!"
