Deep Chocolate Caramels Tube

MADE BY MCCREA'S CANDIES IN BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS

MOUTH SAYS...

These sweets might look charmingly little, but the rich chocolate punch inside is anything but small. This is a grownup take on those Tootsie rolls we chewed on as kids, now greatly improved by deep chocolate liquor, real vanilla bean extract and a dash of salt. A tube of 20 caramels won't last long. Believe us.

Maker Jason McCrea, is an actual scientist, conducting experiments with a singular result in mind: to make the best caramel in the world! Jason makes his caramel in a cooker that’s carefully calibrated to the exact temperature and stirring speed that ensure a velvety texture and smooth flavor, every time. Then, he runs the stick of soft caramel through a 20th-century cutting and wrapping machine.

The results? Just about the closest thing to “best” we’ve ever tasted. He’s blinded us with science.

TIP OF THE TONGUE

A tube of McCrea's caramels makes a sweet welcome gift for houseguests, or a fun treat to pass around at the end of a dinner party. Keep this no-melt chocolate option in your bag for on-the-go cravings, or snag a few of McCrea's smaller heart-adorned “pillow boxes" as stocking stuffers.

  • $17.50 for a 5.5 oz tube
