Caramel corn, caramel apples, caramel sauce… no matter what version you prefer, chances are, there’s a caramel variety for you! This simple, sugary candy has been popular since the seventeenth century and continues to tempt us to this day but I’m sharing what I think are the BEST caramels in Arizona from The Ultimate Caramel Shoppe.
The Ultimate Caramel Shoppe officially opened for business in Gilbert, Arizona in 2013 but the secret recipe has been around much longer. This mother/daughter team has spent over 20 years perfecting the recipe. You can expect only the finest ingredients in each of their buttery caramels. It’s true, the caramels melt in your mouth so you can savor every bite without the candy being too sticky.
Available in varieties such as maple pecan, sea salt, vanilla, raspberry swirl, and my unexpected favorite: lemon almond- the little bites of heaven are the perfect sweet treat to indulge in for National Caramel Day. Even though The Ultimate Caramel Shoppe is local, the goodies can be shipped country wide or picked up local if you live in the valley.
Traditional caramels may be the backbone of The Ultimate Caramel Shoppe, but the caramel apples, bear claws, dipped pretzels, and totally awesome “ultimate” rice crispy treat, affectionately called The Henry. Sink your teeth into a Henry consisting of gooey rice crispy cereal topped with a layer of vanilla caramel and dipped in milk chocolate and hugged with a white chocolate drizzle. As if it could even be any better, the caramel gurus went ahead and created an addition to the original and by adding peanut butter to the mix. Check it out, and try “The Henry PB”
