Learn how Katie of Das Lollipops uses Man Bait to launch business

By Rocco Loosbrock

Recently I had the opportunity to speak with Katie Das, owner of Chicago based Das Foods who has just launched a new company that creates uniquely flavored lollipops.  In getting to know Katie and being curious about her lollipop flavors I learned that she draws her inspiration for her artisanal candies from her Ukrainian American heritage.  Her India-born husband who has fostered her love for exotic spices and unique flavors of the Far East and her background in working for companies like Kraft Foods and Wrigley Company were the perfect stepping stones into creating lollipops that were both different and unique. 

Katie focuses her efforts on sourcing ingredients locally.  She ensures that all Das Foods candies are all natural, are corn syrup-free, free of chemical preservatives and additives, and contain no artificial flavors or food coloring.

As a lover of bacon one flavor in particular caught my attention and that was Man Bait - a maple bacon lolli that`s a fiercely delicious combination of real smoky bacon bits and delicious maple syrup providing an all-at-once savory and sweet sensation.
