Healthy tastes great.
Twin Dragons Baking Company was created to fill a void in the food industry for people who needed to lower their carbohydrates
and sugar intake. We wanted to give healthy and delicious options to diabetics, in addition to parents like us, who were making it a priority to reduce sugar in our children’s diets.
Before keto’s mainstream popularity, there were limited food options available to this market, and even today, most contain unhealthy artificial sweeteners that spike blood sugar and leave a bitter aftertaste. While we are driven to provide the highest nutrition, healthiest ingredients, and widest options for those on specific diets like diabetic, vegan, and plant-based, because we know that food must taste delicious to be adopted, we are 100% committed to superior taste.

Timothy Davidson / Candy Man
Tim loves to be in the kitchen. He worked for his two-generation family candy store in Orangevale, CA from ages 5 to 16, where everything was made from scratch. At 16, he went to work for a national grocery chain where he was eventually promoted to a produce buyer. In this role, Tim traveled extensively to identify and source the best quality foods and ingredients. He has also held food services positions for many years, but at Twin Dragons Baking Co., he is simply known as the Candy Man, returning to his roots to make our sugar-free and vegan chocolates and sweets.
A COMPANY OF CHILDREN FOR CHILDREN

Through this partnership, we are creating an integrated vocational program for their students where they will gain valuable work experience, and job skills training, service-learning opportunities, and develop social and communication
The Twin Dragons Café at Point Quest will offer the community fresh baked goods and coffee and will be located on their El Dorado Hills, CA campus.
