Starting with only three copper kettles this family-owned business began manufacturing their hand-crafted caramel sauces in the state of Idaho. Caramel Kitchen started when Stephanie, a caramel lover, tried her hand at a salted caramel recipe for personal use. After she failed and burnt many batches in the process of cooking, she finally produced a caramel sauce that suited her taste.
Starting as a gift for friends, neighbors, and family during holidays, her husband Brad has encouraged her to start a caramel business. It first started on a camp stove in their kitchen, then converted their garage as their kitchen, and now moved into a manufacturing facility in Washington.
Aside from physical outlets, Caramel Kitchen online can now be visited by caramel lovers outside the area. Caramel sauces are available in 6 different variants: Salted Caramel, Bourbon Caramel, Chocolate, Cinnamon Vanilla, Espresso, and Chipotle. Pumpkin Spice is a 7th seasonal flavor.
All products of Caramel Kitchen in US are shipped through USPS or UPS and are processed within 1-5 business days upon ordering.
