What’s the Story, Morning Glory?

Your idea of morning glory? Coffee and a bran muffin. (Let’s not go into detail.)

One bite of Morning Glory Confections may have you rethinking things. The artisan brittle is handmade in small batches out of top-notch, natural ingredients.

Creator Max Lesser has perfected five flavors of the stuff: chai tea and cashew; cocoa nib, coffee bean, and pecan; fleur de sel and peanut; Indian curry and pistachio; and New Mexico chili and pumpkin seed. The sure sign of his success lies in the taste — you can decipher every single flavor in each bar.

The treats are available for purchase in two- or five-ounce bags.

And sure beat your usual morning grind.
