After overcoming years of severe depression, Bernadette Taylor found her passion making homemade candy brittle for her family and friends. In 2015, Taylor started her business Brittle Diddle and has been successful since.

 Unexpectedly, tragedy struck in 2021 when her son was murdered. Before his passing, he expressed his delight for her candies and made recipe suggestions that would result in bestsellers.  

 Now fast-forward to 2023, Brittle Diddle will be at this year’s annual Taste of Soul Family Festival on Saturday, October 21. 

 The self-proclaimed “Best Brittle in Los Angeles County” stuff their candies with a variety of flavors like pecan, brownie, and marshmallow. Although the business does not have a store front, it’s still serving the community via phone orders, deliveries, and vendor pop-up shops.

 Taylor’s goals include expanding by opening a store in the city. Taste of Soul patrons are welcome and encouraged to stop by the Brittle Diddle booth to enjoy these homemade sweet treats.
