Candy Saga Bar, a premium sweet tooth club, exists to serve your desires with luscious treats that will inevitably enliven the child in you.

The virtual catering company specialises in supplying confectionaries that add excitement and character to your day. Whether it’s a wedding, birthday, baby shower or any other special moment worth celebrating, this business is ready to serve you, with candies at your door.

Oneil Dempst is the owner. What started out several years ago as a hobby soon became a second bread for the prep-school teacher. Appealing to the eyes with astonishing candy art, Dempst is committed to pleasing all sugary cravings. His efforts are fuelled by his liking and appreciation for sweets. According to the young entrepreneur, the term ‘Candy Saga’ is the best depiction that encapsulates his vision of offering a number of delicious delights in one package and at a suitable price.

“In Jamaica, saga means ‘mix up’ or variety, so that is the concept behind my brand. I’ve always wanted to be an entrepreneur and I’ve always been fascinated by candies. I started studying the market since I was 12 years old. So, in school I opened a small business selling sweets.” he explained.

Chocolate bars, gummy bears in their natural state and also covered in the decadent cocoa-based dessert option, customised candy kebabs, marshmallows and cotton candy are just a few of the savoury items Candy Saga presents for your palate. Plus, with a love for art, Dempst and his team continue to create art with the goodies; for example, floral arrangements that are guaranteed to make the experience more thrilling.

“We bring something different to the market, so persons have a better chance of fulfilling their needs. Plus, we do customised packages for your event. If you are using a theme, we’ll wrap the items to match whatever it is that you are focusing on. So, if you like Frozen we’ll ensure that you get exactly what you want,” he told Food.

Booking the bar for your significant moment is simple. The process begins when you send a direct message to its social media page and place your orders.

Dempst is hoping to secure and open a physical location come 2020. So, keep your eyes open for even greater delights from the Candy Saga.
