Where can I find some really good caramels with fleur de sel in New York (preferably Manhattan)?

    I saw them at Fairway a few weeks ago.

      I looked for them at Fairway last night, with no success. None of the staff had a clue. Do you remember where in the store you saw the salty caramels? Thanks.

        I saw them about 6 weeks ago. They were stacked close to the floor, way below waist level, on one of the shelf banks that stand at the end of the aisles. If you are standing with your back to the Fairway brand olive oils, look at one of the shelves that are directly facing you. Like at the end of the aisle that has the mustards and jams. I wish I could draw you a picture. They were packed in small wooden boxes, just like the ones I saw in Paris last month.

          No picture needed. I know where you mean and will look there next time. I did look in that area, but probably not low enough. Thank you very much.

      Just don't get fooled by the fleur de sel caramels at
      trader joe's. They look right, but...

      I bought a box with high hopes, fine texture, but the flavor is almost the same as the Brach's that you find in your Grandmother's candy dish.

          Kee's chocolates in Soho when she makes them.

          Or, for delivery to nyc or anywhere,

          award winning and always amazing. Recently you can find Fran's gold bars at Whole Foods in the city. They rock as well.
