Regardless of its $300-$400 cost per gallon, only real Madagascar bourbon vanilla has the rich, robust character we require for our original caramels and caramel corn treats. Each batch of caramel starts in a 20 gallon kettle. We add sea salt and flavorings and when the caramel is ready, fresh popcorn is stirred in until coated. Minutes later, it is packaged and sealed for your enjoyment. I hope you enjoy our caramel corn as much as I do. It is truly an unparalleled artisan confection.
