About Us

Our Products


Carmel Yum Yums  are caramelized corn puffs that come in a variety of flavors! They are gluten free and contain no artificial colors or high fructose corn syrup. They are oven baked and caramelized by hand in my nut-free commercial kitchen. Established in 2014, Carmel Yum Yums are a great alternative to traditional caramel corn for anyone! They are Celiac  friendly, and have no hulls, seeds, or kernels to get stuck in your teeth. There many flavors to choose from, including a seasonal flavor of the month that follows the forever-changing seasons of Michigan!  Our most popular flavors are Original Caramel, French Toast, Caramel Cheesecake and our Sweet & Spicy Cajun . Add a bit of milk and they become the yummiest gourmet cereal you have always craved!    

My Story

Hi there, I am Tonya Burton, I am the owner and founder of Carmel Yum Yums.

  • I made  Carmel Yum Yums at home as Christmas gifts for many years . Every year family and friends would bring me their buckets  for refills before the holidays.  I knew then that I was on to something! After working as a hairstylist for over 20 years and having numerous  surgeries throughout my life due to neurological disorders, I decided it was time for a career change. I started doing research on how to start your own small business. I was told by everyone that I was crazy to even try, but I thought, "Why not!!" 
  • I am a single mom, I was taking care of my mother with dementia at the time, and had more major surgeries before age 30 than I care to count . I worked with the Small Business Development Center and became the only person to ever get  commercially licensed in  Goodwill Industries commercial kitchen in April 2014. I started selling  my products at a local Farmers Market. I quickly was approached about being a wholesaler to local businesses.  In 2015 I won two awards. The SPARK Award for innovative ideas in Genesee County, and the BOOM Award (Be Our Own Motivation) Entrepreneur of the year in the State of Michigan for people with disabilities.
