Salted Caramel?

wutzizname Apr 8, 2010 07:22 PM

Other than Huckleberry -- which I love -- and the now defunct Boule... where else can one find great salted caramels?

    yum, love that Huckleberry salted caramel bar. Little Flower makes salted caramels sold at a number of places around town.

          If you love Huckleberry's salted caramel bar, you will also love their salted caramel ice cream which they make for their Sweet Rose Creamery ice cream store.

          I've seen some at Surfas, not recently though. Monsieur Marcel should have some.

            I hate to say this but Trader Joe's makes a good one that is very reasonably priced. Try it and see what you think.

              Joans on Third sells salted caramel icecream in their frozen items case and it's amazing!

                This isn't eactly what you are looking for, but the ice cream lovers in my family went bananas for Chili Addiction's salted carmel ice cream.

                  La Brea bakery has a bin with some very nice salted caramels for $0.90 each. Gelson's and Whole Foods carry Fran's chocolate salted caramels which are excellent. They have dark and milk.

                  Also, I bought a large bag of salted caramels at Epicurean Imports when they were open last fall.

                    I just recently bougt some at Cost Plus (green box, cannot remember name) and I also agree with the recs for Little Flower.

                      Bequet caramels are also yummy. You can order them online at http://www.bequetconfections.com/. I bought them at Marmalade Cafe in SM a few months back. Celtic sea salt is my favorite, but they also have chipotle and other flavors.

                        Huckleberry's salted caramel square is the best caramel thing I've ever had.

                        Another place to buy more traditional salted caramels is the Cheese Store of SIlver Lake.

                          According to Jonathan Gold:

                          Little Flower's Sea-Salt Caramels

                          If you tend to esteem human happiness more than the state of your teeth, you may have a bag of Little Flower caramels stashed in your desk right now: supple lozenges made with French sea salt from the Guérande, which dissolve into pure, buttery clouds of flavor. Christine Moore's caramels are probably the best candy made in Los Angeles at the moment. Little Flower Candy Co., 1424 W. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena. (626) 304-4800

                          Please let me know if they're worth ordering.

                            Little Flower caramels are very good, but given a choice, Huck's caramel square wins - it's no contest for me. The shortbread crust seals the deal.

                            has anyone tried the salted caramel croissant from valerie confections? i keep seeing them at the farmer's market but i haven't tried one for fear that i would become addicted. i once saw a horde of girls, clearly fresh from the gym or yoga class, wipe the stall out of these pastries. they must be worth the extra calories!

                              I wasn't impressed as they weren't what I expected...which was a croissant. I know, crazy. It's basically a smidgen of salted caramel in the center of some puff pastry. I didn't find them worth the calories or the price, same as I feel for most of their products unfortunately.
