Salted Caramel in Jacksonville/Orlando (or in between)
- ChristDriven Oct 10, 2010 05:30 PM
I was in bed earlier listening to KCRW's Good Food podcast and in a moment of zoning out, I had a real urge for salted caramel. I am interested in anything that is or contains salted caramel...ice cream, confectionery, whatever. I'm quite sure I can make some myself as well but am interested in other renditions where my time and money could be spent on instead of doing it myself.
As the title states, I am looking for the delectable treat in the areas of Jacksonville, Orlando, or in between the two.
I appreciate the help!
My wife loves these dark chocolate-covered sea salt caramels made by Jo's Candies. We've only found them at Cost Plus World Market (now only in Sanford, since the Orlando one closed).
There was once a magnificent chocolatier in Jacksonville named Theresa Rogers. She had a shop in Lakewood named Choc-o-lat where she sold handmade chocolates, caramels, toffee and truffles. The caramels were amazing (especially after the caramel had grained-if you could resist eating them for awhile). My wife(at the time my girlfriend) had herbal essence moments while enjoying her chocolate covered caramels. I have not had their equal before or since. Her doors closed abruptly one day. If she opened shop elsewhere, find her and let me know where!!!
Fran's makes an incredible salted caramel. They're based in Seattle, but if you call them, they will tell you who sells them in your area...
