Katherine Anne Confections' Rosemary Sea Salt Caramels Meld Flavors

Katherine Anne Confections' Rosemary Sea Salt Caramels were awarded a gold 2019 sofi Award from the Specialty Food Association in the confection category. These treats meld salty and sweet flavors into chewy bites, specifically for those who might be dubious about fusing something sweet with herbs. As the brand describes, herbs are more commonly seen in the main course of dinner rather than the dessert that follows and this creation has the potential to "open up a whole new world of flavors."

Sweets that are accented by a variety of vegetables, spices and other savory ingredients are becoming more popular, especially as consumers are looking to avoid eating ultra-sweet, sugary flavors for the sake of better health.
