Ok, so you probably know how to eat a caramel.
What’s there to know, right? Open mouth, insert caramel, chew, gulp it down!
Well sure! But I find that if you actually take your time and let it dissolve a bit in your mouth first you will notice that the flavor is much more enhanced.
Obviously taking your time is the sensible thing no matter what you’re up to! One, you just get to experience things longer, but two, the sweet and salt receptors of your tongue are out front, so letting it dissolve means you hit those receptors more and the flavor will be intensified.
Seriously, give it a try. Eat one “normal”, then eat another one letting it dissolve in your mouth for a while. The smooth buttery sweetness is intensified when you take your time.
Many people are also concerned about caramel and their teeth and dental work. This is caramel after all so I make no promises! However, this is another argument for taking your time and letting it dissolve – the chances of it damaging any dental work is minimized. Go slow, do not chew, – and enjoy every last second.
I try to make Cheryl's Caramels
somewhere in the middle in terms of hardness. Because everything is hand made, and they are very sensitive to the weather and temperature, there will be variations in hardness, it can’t be helped (well, unless I automate, add chemicals and wax but then they won’t be made by hand and with love now will they!).
So take your time and savor them!
2015 is almost behind us, and it's been a stellar year for this little caramel company! With all the hard work, long hours and thousands of caramel candies crafted, wrapped and peddled - Cheryl's Caramels achieved record sales and I thank you, each and every one of my amazing customers and caramel fans!
2016 will bring new challenges, new flavors and new, even larger events like the Temecula Wine & Balloon Festival and Fiesta Del Sol in Solana Beach as well as the Carlsbad Street Fairs, Encinitas Street Fairs, Little Italy Fiesta and all our favorite local San Diego County fairs.
And of course, I'll be offering up all your favorite caramels at the weekly Oceanside Sunset Market and Street Fair every Thursday evening from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
So, once again I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your support. I'm so very happy that you love my caramels and I look forward to seeing you in 2016!
Check back soon for my 2016 event calendar.
is super excited to introduce a new "limited edition" caramel for Fall - Butterscotch!
Butterscotch is one of the world's most popular flavors and wait until you taste this heart warming flavor in one of my amazing creamy caramel candies!
I fondly remember my Grandmother slipping me a Butterscotch candy now and again, and the flavor and aroma of this beloved confection has been lovingly passed on into this new yummy delight.
Still no preservatives, still real food, my Butterscotch caramels will be sure to bring a smile to your face...
And of course, Fall would not be complete without Pumpkin Pie and Gingerbread! So now, through the holidays, my ever so popular Pumpkin Pie and Gingerbread Caramels will be available.
Made with my "secret" blend of spices, these caramels were a HUGE hit last season, so now is your chance to enjoy these delightful caramels.
is already taking orders for custom caramel treats for the holidays, and the Butterscotch, Pumpkin Pie and Gingerbread flavors are in high demand.
These "limited edition" caramels will only be available through the 2015 holiday season, so get'em while you can...
