Meet Dr. Shica Little of Pretty Delicious Foods in Glendale

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Shica Little.

Dr. Shica decided to make a lifestyle change which included making better food choices, but as a southern girl, she still likes to splurge sometimes. Unfortunately, most of her guilty pleasures were made with high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors and colors.

Inspired by her grandma’s motto, “if you can’t find it create it,” Dr. Shica created quick, easy & fun powder mixes. Her All-In-One flavor packs (natural color, flavor & sweetener) will take any recipe to the next level. You can now add fun flavors & colors to whipped cream, pies, ice cream, frostings, glazes and more! There are over a hundred flavors including seasonal flavors to choose from and you’ll love the convenience of the All-In-One flavor packs. There’s no need to buy high priced flavor, color & sweetener when you can save time and money with our ready to mix, pre-measured packs! Our packs can used for dairy or dairy-free recipes!

Dr. Shica’s goal is to help you create delicious desserts that are made the finest natural ingredients. The homemade taste will remind you of the good old days. Dr. Shica is expanding the brand to now offer Southern Style Ready to Eat Dutch Apples, Sweet Potato Pies, Red Velvet Cakes, Corporate themed treats and more!

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It has not been a smooth road. However, as with any business…challenges and battles should be viewed as learning opportunities for the next time. There will always be hurdles to overcome but it is more about how you overcome them. We had challenges in finding the right business partners. You have to understand that it is your baby and that there are few people that will nurture your business the same way you do. Also, we learned that it is imperative to find exceptional manufacturers that will create the same type quality product you created.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Dr. Shica’s All-In-One Flavor Mixes are a revolutionary line of flavor packs that allow home cooks, bakers and foodservice professionals to take any recipe to the next level, making incredible fun, colorful, enticing party foods in minutes.

Our All-In-One Flavor Mixes are quick & easy to use and is made with natural flavor, color and its pre-sweetened! The company was started because the market needs “better for you” foods that are quick & easy to make but doesn’t sacrifice the taste! Our mixes and treats are perfect for those that love to entertain, they want a delectable homemade treat but may not have a lot of time to prepare it. Also, our all-in-one flavor mixes give the customer premium natural flavors and colors at a fraction of the cost of having to buy multiple flavors and colors.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Success is waking up each morning and LOVING what you do! I love the product I created and I am passionate about educating customers about it, I love selling it and also baking and creating with our products so I can show the world all of its unique uses! The moment I no longer LOVE what I do means there is no success! Success is all in what you make it!
