“It all started with LOVING the taste of Chocolate Pecan Corn & Our Caramel Almond Cashew Popcorn. Trust me, this is no typical Caramel Corn!”


Almost 40 years ago, Donamae Koppelman created a business from a creative hobby selling delicious popcorn to the delight of friends, family & various fundraisers.

It turned into a huge corporate business which their customers still look forward to getting all year round. As the business grew, she passed her secrets and passion down to her daughter Nancy Charney and granddaughter Jaclyn Charney. How special it is that it is a 3rd generation company! Of course, they are proud and loving it too!

Donamae loves people & parties.

They learned, watched & worked alongside her & added their signature touch to the original Donamae’s favorites. As the torch was passed to Nancy, she created Donamae’s Sweet Studio.


Donamae has been a mentor & an inspiration to Nancy & Jaclyn.

This gem, near Lake Minnetonka (Deephaven Court), is where Nancy & Jaclyn’s creativity & attention to create unique edible gifts meet Donamae’s tradition of gracious entertaining.


Donamae’s Sweet Studio is a warm, inviting spot where tasteful gifts are adorned in beautiful packages & artful candy trays are created for special events & customized gift giving.

A studio atmosphere provides inspiration for customers & professional planners to customize gifts and events, and invites walk-in guests to choose a gift to go from our studio collection. They love what they sell & hope you feel it in the atmosphere.


Walk-thru the door & you will be charmed by the possibilities.
