  • Product Care
    • Our caramels are handcrafted in small batches with organic ingredients including fresh local cream and butter.

      For optimal freshness and flavor, please enjoy your caramels within 30 days.

      Store your caramels out of direct sunlight, in a cool, dry place between 54-68°F (12-20°C).

      To avoid blooming, please do not place your caramels in the refrigerator.

      While we generally advise against refrigerating chocolates, there may be some instances like heat and humidity where refrigeration is the only way to maintain the integrity of your chocolates.  If you do need to store your confections in the refrigerator, we recommend protecting them by placing the box inside two airtight plastic bags, air removed and fully sealed.  Stored in this way, we recommend enjoying refrigerated confections within 30 days.  When enjoying refrigerated chocolates, we suggest keeping the box inside the two sealed plastic bags until the entire package comes to room temperature; this process will take approximately two hours.
