Our homemade creamy caramel has a soft, buttery texture with hints of vanilla.

Creamy Sea Salt Caramel
August 18, 2016
Our classic creamy caramel topped with grey sea salt makes for a little heaven on earth. The sea salt- a natural flavor enhancer- enhances the sugary, buttery flavor of the caramel without making it too sweet and, if we do our job right, not too salty. Layering these flavors brings more use to our 5 taste buds leaving you with just the right amount of sweet and salty.
