Introducing… Butterscotch Caramels!

BS portraitCheryl's Caramels 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... fall-LE-pumpkinsAnd 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. Cheryl's 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...  

Sweet September!

Happy Autumn to all my Cheryl's Caramels fans! It's been a fun-filled relaxing summer, but now it's time for all the fabulous Fall festivals and events here in San Diego county.

The event entertainment feature The Bluebirds, a German-American Band, Bavarian dancers and a street craft faire featuring over 200 vendors including artisans with unusual arts and craft items.

PROST! harbor days logoNext, the entire weekend of September 26th and 27th will be the fabulous Oceanside Harbor Days! This festival is one of my all time local favorites with an abundance of great entertainment, food, pirates and the ever entertaining Nail & Sail competition. Once again, the red and white striped Cheryl's Caramels market booth will be located on the beach side of the harbor (woo hoo!) Don't miss this great weekend of fun in Oceanside. 1-IMG_1208And of course, every Thursday evening Cheryl's Caramels will be on the corner of Civic Civic Center Drive and N. Tremont Street for Oceanside's famous Sunset Market Street Fair from 5:00 to 9:00 pm. With the summer rush coming to an end, this is my favorite time of year at the Sunset Market. Temperatures are cooling down, and the entire town seems to relax a bit. Last, but far from least, I'd like to take this opportunity once again to thank you all for another great summer of sharing my goodies with you all. THANK YOU!!!
