At Southern Caramel we make one thing and we make it well. We believe that the art of making handmade caramel is more than the mastery of blending ingredients together. In its simplest form, caramel is only three ingredients. But not all caramel is created equal.
We have honed our recipe over time through a process that was admittedly a little tricky to perfect. Years were spent in the kitchen making recipe tweaks and adjustments until we arrived at what we felt was the BEST caramel on the market. We know what caramel should look like, what caramel should smell like, and we know that caramel cooks a little differently in August than it does in January. Our caramel is made without the aid of preservatives and still maintains a shelf life of four months unrefrigerated (up to a year when refrigerated).
Our caramels are made from scratch and by hand using pure ingredients, just like grandma used to make. No heavy equipment … all handmade, hand-cut, and hand-wrapped. Each box is then packaged for each individual order. The fact that our caramels are made in small batches allows us to maintain a level of quality throughout our production process that results in exceptional taste and product consistency.
Nothing compares to the taste of true caramel. So what makes Southern Caramel different from the other caramel manufacturers? The main thing that sets us apart from the rest of the pack is the flavor and the manner in which the caramel dissolves in your mouth without sticking to your teeth. We start the process with pure cane sugar and then we caramelize it. This may seem like an obvious step, but many caramel manufacturers do not take the time to truly caramelize their sugar. The unfortunate result is a sugary, sweet, brown filling that lacks the depth of flavor that characterizes true caramel. We feel pretty strongly about this, but we think your caramel should taste like… well, caramel.
