Welcome to Powder Monkey Gourmet Treats. We offer childhood memories to the dreamers; food experiences to the foodie; conversation pieces; and pleasure to the taste buds of all. You like to try new things? So do we! We make our treats to remind you that life is sweet and joy can be found in the little things. Simply flavourful, each batch is made from scratch with thoughtfully sourced ingredients, blended by those who love and live for food. So where did we come up with this quirky name? Our name is a tribute to a lady who had an innate understanding of what childhood should be. Every family should have an Auntie Jan, a woman who was the perfect blend of strict and playful.
Growing up in the Caribbean, we would read of snow and ice and would long to experience it; to be able to ice skate. Those fantasies seemed out of reach. Not to Jan, she brought it to life for us. In the evening after we took our showers, she would let us sprinkle powder all along the hallway and corridor. Her one rule was that we clean up after we were finished. Oh the glorious competitions we had sliding, slipping and bumping in the sea of powder. Of course when we were finished we were covered from head to toe in powder. She would laugh and call us her powder monkeys.
The name Powder Monkey takes us back to a playful time when creativity knew no bounds, and each day was an adventure.
