Brittle Bark Story


Brittle Bark Story

Diane Krulac was a busy single mother back in 1992, traveling for a growing software business. When the preschool bake sale committee called and asked her to make 6 cakes for the annual fund raiser, she knew she needed an alternative that would sell as well as homemade cakes, but that could be made ahead of time in small batches. Candy sounded like a great idea! After trial and error (many) she perfected her peanut brittle recipe to create an original one that was thin, crispy, creamy, and not too sugary sweet. She tried it on family and friends and their immediate reaction was, “I want more!”.

Diane started Brittle Bark Company in October 2003 and has been doubling and tripling sales each year since. “Simply the best” are the words we hear as new customers are introduced to the many different varieties of Brittle Bark. Using the highest quality ingredients, Brittle Bark is hand made a single batch at a time year round.

In September of 2008, after being selected as the “Snack of the Day” by Rachael Ray, Brittle Bark opened a retail store in downtown Mechanicsburg, PA. (See Welcome to our Brittle Bark Store)

Enjoy giving Brittle Bark, and the standing ovation you will receive from family and friends as you delight them with this divine indulgence!
