While soft, chewy caramel candy pieces are often associated with a sugary sweet flavor, this flavor from Liddabit Sweets ventures into savory territory.
While the ingredient list from these caramels features familiar ingredients like heavy cream, cane sugar and evaporated milk, it also gets unique flavoring from sources like balsamic vinegar, pieces of dried figs and ricotta. Due to the sophistication of the Fig-Ricotta Caramels, Liddabit Sweets suggests that the candies go well with a cheese platter or a glass of port.
Other experimental caramel candy flavors that Liddabit Sweets produces include: Beer & Pretzel, Ginger Beer, Apple Cider, as well as Bourbon Bacon Caramel Corn.
Since candies are usually meant to be eaten in small quantities, even people who don't consider themselves to be foodies are willing to try new unusual flavors like these.
