Confection-wise, I think that I love caramel even more than I love chocolate and McCrea’s Caramels were at the show to introduce new flavors and holiday packaging. They are the only company that I know that make Jalapeño Caramels and also bring the art of making Sea Salt Caramels to new heights. Their pieces are perfectly bite-sized, superfresh and wrapped in a special plastic wrap that will keep them that way for a long time. The Boston area based McCrea’s assortments and individual flavors come in so many shapes and sizes and the classy cream-colored paper boxes and tubes with illustrations of the plants used for each flavor inside are endearing. I hope to have a marathon session of trying ever flavor in this top-notch small batch caramel line someday. I have already managed to eat three different size packages in two hours. They always come up with quirky new caramel flavors thrown to keep their line fresh and updated.
