Jody is Tammy's partner and keeps Tammy in check.  Jody is a professional business women and handles all the store's finanicals. Jody however is also very creative so they love to bounce ideas off of each other. 

When it came to naming the store Jody and Tammy were inspired by Tammy's  mother, Marian.  Marian was a diabetic but loved her sweets. Marian would take a piece of candy, a cookie or piece of cake look at everyone and state

"I'm just having a taste."  So Just A Taste was born. 

Once the caramel receipe was perfected and they found the best tasting chocolate in the Chicagoland area Just A Taste Confections was opened (circa 2015).
