Liz Carroll, was born and raised on Long Island and has raised three children of her own. As a single parent, she dedicated her time to her children and her full-time job. Now that her children are young adults, life can get a little easier, but instead of sitting back, Liz felt that she wanted a little more. Just a little something to make extra money and to feel some self-satisfaction. She sat and thought about the cookies she has made for the past 20 years and knew they were always a hit, so she decided to start a cookie business! After involved research and learning what was needed to get started, Liz obtained necessary permits, found a graphic designer who could design her envisioned logo and started baking at a commercial kitchen. Much time was dedicated to finding the right packaging, offering different size “country” cookie bags and assorted tins. Liz expanded on her original recipe and came up with six different flavors, of these wonderful saltine crackers that are layered with toffee and chocolate. After only a few months, just a little over a year ago, Wild Lizzy’s™ was born. The saltine cracker cookies that Liz had always made for family and friends started being sold. Liz created a website that is very successful and already has over 500 followers on Facebook. She registered for numerous street fairs and events throughout Nassau and Suffolk County, participated and donated to fundraisers, spent time at tasting events and many orders come from just word of mouth. Wild Lizzy’s™ can also be found in several specialty stores. Wild Lizzy’s™ is all about sampling, and the reaction is always “Oh My God”, so she now has an “OMG” Bell! When you say it, you ring it! The bell has also become very popular and attracts hundreds of new customers! In a very short time, Liz has taken this business to unbelievable recognition. Her customers not only love her cookies, but love her! The Long Island Food Critic awarded Wild Lizzy’s™ with an Award of Excellence for “Best New Product” on Long Island after only 7 months in business. Following that, Wild Lizzy’s™ took the award from a long-time winner for “Best in Show” at the Sweet Escapes Expo in New Jersey! Wild Lizzy’s™ has also just won the Best Chocolatier on Long Island for 2015 from the Long Island Press.
