Today caramel is such a popular treat that many candy companies have caramel of the month clubs. These caramel subscriptions allow the recipient to indulge in a variety of small bath caramel flavors from all over the US.

McCrea's Candies, founded by Jason McCrea, is headquartered in Hyde Park, MA. Jason's first career was initially in the science community, but caramel making was his true passion.

With his background in chemistry and with the help of family and friends, he started McCrea's Candies. Though the company name includes “candies,” McCrea's specializes in caramels, and though they may offer chocolates for special occasions, it is not a standard option.

  • Three months: $79.95
  • Six months: $149.95
  • 12 months: $289.95

The subscription box includes:

  • Approximately three dozen caramels packed in a black McCrea's gift box
  • Each month the caramel connoisseur will choose a new monthly flavor
  • Shipping's included in the price of the membership
