Béquet Caramels:
Versatile Vanilla


This artisan producer in Montana offers versatility: vanilla caramels in Soft, Chewy, Anise, Celtic Sea Salt, Salt Chocolate, Chipotle and Maple. Or, there are subtly-flavored Chocolate and Espresso. Our favorites are the Anise, Celtic Sea Salt, Salt Chocolate and Chipotle. The latter is milder than Cowgirl Chocolates’ Hot Habañero (for people who want a nice pinch, but not a kick). You can actually taste the chipotle (smoked jalapeño), which provides a very nice counterpoint to the sugar and butter. The “Soft” caramel is nicely soft (though Gifford’s are softer), and “Chewy” is appropriately so.

A bevy of Béquet caramels: An assorted bag has six different flavors.

Yee-hah—hot habanero caramels from Cowgirl Chocolate spice things up.

Cowgirl Chocolates:
Hot Habanero Caramels


A creamy caramel with a hot habanero kick is just what the doctor ordered, at least for some folks. We loved these Buckin’ Hot Habañero Caramels, made in Idaho. They’re tender enough to be enjoyed with a cup of tea or a glass of milk, and spicy enough to have with a beer. Read our full review of Cowgirl Chocolates’ spicy candies, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week.
