|Tia Morrell is the owner of Tia's Treats and
Eats, a business specializing in the finest
chocolate-covered strawberries, chocolate
candy, grazing boards and coca bombs in
the Greater Portland area.
Tia Morrell is a native of Windham who founded Tia’s Treats and Eats several years ago and is committed to offering the finest chocolate-covered strawberries, chocolate candy, cocoa bombs, grazing boards and exceptional customer service available in the Greater Portland area. Each treat is prepared using fresh and organic ingredients, sourced locally and from around the globe and gift cards are also available.
“The best thing about what we do is to make something that seems so simple, but it is so well loved by those who receive it,” Morrell said. “The biggest challenge is finding the time to do even more of this.”
Tia’s Treats and Eats can be selected and ordered online and can either be picked up or delivered locally for free in the Greater Portland area.
“We offer something that can be brought to baby showers, the office Christmas party, for weddings, for Valentine’s Day, school graduations and more,” Morrell said. “The best part is that it’s all hand-made.”
Choices can be made directly online and the menu for Tia’s Treats and Eats rotates depending upon the season.
“Valentine’s Day is typically our busiest season,” Morrell said. “But no matter what time of year, the ordering process is very accessible and it’s very easy to get our products.”
Along with a wide assortment of sugary delights, Tia’s Treats and Eats also offers gluten-free and allergy-free treats that can be enjoyed by all.
“Because it’s important to me, our packaging comes in recyclable boxes and our grazing board bamboo trays are compostable,” she said. “Everything is safe for the environment. These are snacks that are good for our planet.”
She founded the company after living and working in New York City and then upon returning to her home state of Maine, Morrell says that she discovered that she couldn’t find some of the treats here that she enjoyed there.
Morrell says that she’s constantly looking to add new products to her line and at any given time, has between 10 and 12 different items available for purchase depending on the time of year.
“Finding just the right ingredients is always tough and does depend upon the day,” she said. “I find that I’m always shopping. It’s difficult to get strawberries throughout the year. Sometimes I’m ordering up to 30 cases of strawberries at a time.”
She says that she has discovered that to be successful in this type of business, a person must have the right mindset.
“You must have a quality product, be positive and friendly, and it takes time to build referrals,” Morrell said.
So far, the reviews for her products are sensational.
“I had berries gifted to me and they were so beautiful. But not only were they aesthetically pleasing, they were delicious. The berries were perfectly ripe, and the paired chocolate just couldn't have been better. Contactless delivery was a huge bonus as well.” Helen C. on Yelp
“Tia puts her all into creating such a special and delicious way of saying thank you. Recently I asked her to create a special gift of appreciation to a fine EMS department. They were worthy of something that took some love in creating, packaging, and delivering and Tia did exactly that. I added to the order last minute she accommodated without hesitation. I can tell you - these gorgeous delicacies got rave reviews! Thank you again, Tia. I would encourage you to reach out to her for any day, moment or event that has meaning for you.” Cheryl C. on Yelp
“Love, love, love my Valentine strawberries!!!! I wish I had taken a picture, but we hit that box hard! They tasted even better than they looked. And fruity pebbles with white chocolate might be my favorite now. Thanks Tia you’re doing amazing work.” Mary McGurn Wasick on Facebook
