Erica Putis grew up in a small town in Vermont where the grass was green and the winters cold. During this time, she wandered for hours around her family’s 20 acres in awe of nature and her surroundings. Memories of making candy in their small country kitchen and listening to music by her mother’s side, encouraged her as an adult to start covering EVERYTHING in chocolate. In 2019 Erica created Nuclear Confections where she merged her nostalgic memories of creating science projects with her big brother, candy making with her mother and the need to be creative in the form a tasty treat. This sweet adventure has been very rewarding and to this day, Nuclear Confection provides a way to satisfy your knowledge of science and that sweet tooth! Mmm… candy.
