Made in California with a French twist, Le Caramel slow cooks their confections using a traditional recipe from the region of Isigny sur Mer. The Normandy town is as well known for its creamy dairy products as it is for its salted butter—the magic ingredient for complimenting the candy's sugary base.


The husband-and-wife team handmake each batch of their caramel topping, cream, syrup and classic candies in their San Diego outpost, where they cook the caramel in copper kettles imported from France.


Le Caramel's distinctly delicious goods sell Amazon starting at $10.
