Caramels. Chewy, soft, decadent, sweet, enticing, and so much more! Have you ever wondered how caramels came to be?
Caramels date back to 1650 when Americans were making hard candy in kettles by crystallizing sugar in boiling water. They were making caramels before they even knew what they were. At the time, people called it “hard candy” or a “lollipop”! Between 1650 and the 1880s, the treat turned into the soft, delicious caramel we know today when somebody decided to experiment and add fat and milk to the mixture. Before that, caramel was usually made with sugar beet juice instead of sugar as the white, powdery confection was more of a luxury and harder to come by back then.
We still make all of our caramels by hand, and use no preservatives or additives. It’s part of what makes our caramels so fresh, and dare we say, delicious! Oh you can definitely taste the amazing difference in every bite.
