where to get sea salt caramel in the city?


I'm craving for some quality sea salt caramel, but I can't find any retail in the city that sells it. I tried Blue Apron Food in Brooklyn that sells Little Flower Caramel, but they are out of stock. I tried the Whole Foods in Columbus Circle to see if they have Fran's Chocolate's caramel, and I was out of luck.

I tried googling it and I could only find recipes not a single retail locations.

Do you guys know where I can get this? Or is this just not a New York thing yet?

I don't want to order online because the shipping fee is outrageous usually.

  1. Not sure about the candy itself, but Haagen Dazs just came out with a new "Reserve" flavor called "Fleur de Sel Caramel." It's so incredible that I dream about it. MUST TRY!

      The Fleur de Sel Caramel from Haagen Dazs actually came out early last year! I found it lacking the salt flavor though.

      Bespoke Chocolate has pretzel-covered sea-salted caramels. While I would still want more salty flavor, this one is pretty darn good!

        Yep, I saw on the website that the flavor debuted in Nov/Dec 2008. Unfortunately, I've never seen the "Reserve" line where I shop. Luckily, I check the Haagen Dazs website every now and then. I just can't get enough of this ice cream!

          Where did you find the Reserve label ice cream? I'd love to try that flavor!

            I saw Haagen Daas Reserve at the Food Emporium on 14th Street recently.

              It's seriously amazing!!! Follow this link:


              Scroll towards the bottom of the page to “flavor finder.” Enter your zip code, hit “find it,” and you’re golden. Let me know what you think if/when you try!

                Finally tried the Fleur De Sel Caramel ice cream from Haagen Dazs last night after spotting it at my local Gristede's, and it was great! Thanks for the rec!

                    Just saw this at Food Emporium Bridge Market on 59th and 1st. I feel like I never see it in stores. Can't wait to try!

    2. I've seen it sold in Dean and DeLuca.

        not to extend to another borough, but the met food on 37th ave in jackson hts carries the reserve line @ $4 a pint. love the sea salt caramel.

      2. I second the pretzel-covered sea salt caramels from Bespoke. They are excellent! Nunu Chocolates also sells relatively good hand-dipped salt caramels, but the shop is in Brooklyn.

        1. Though not technically "in the city" NuNu Chocolate (Boreum Hill) and The Chocolate Room (Park Slope) in Brooklyn make some really great sea salt caramels. I prefer NuNu's. Both are only 3 stops or so from the city.

          1. dunno if this does the trick, but tribeca treats sells chocolate covered caramels with salt on top.
