Former LSU football player’s mother creates candy business

Ruth Flynn, the mother of former LSU quarterback Matt Flynn, has created a candy that she’ll sell at Calvin’s Bocage Market, according to The Greater Baton Rouge Business Report. The candy, a white chocolate roasted pecan treat, is called Mama Roos. Flynn had some help with the candy from the LSU AgCenter Food Incubator.

“Our food scientists and students helped her to scale up her recipe so that the taste was still the same when making large batches,” said Gaye Sandoz, director of the food incubator, according to The Business Report.

If the candy is successful, Flynn plans to introduce more candies.
