McCrea's Candies

It started with founder Jason McCrea, boiling up some cream, butter and sugar in his home kitchen, and now McCrea’s Caramels can be found on retail shelves nationwide. Pop in to their Hyde Park factory retail store, or pick up a sampler of his 16 flavors of caramels basically anywhere.

Must get: black lava sea salt, single malt scotch, rosemary truffle

“If you read the ingredients, cane sugar, fresh milk, fresh cream, sugar and butter, you understand the product is made with some integrity. Best candy ever…seriously.” – Steve S
