Droga - Put Your Money on Honey caramels - August 8, 2012

Chocolate of the Day: 

Droga Confections
"Put Your Money on Honey" (caramels)
Very Good
Weight: 1.25 oz. (35 g.) in 2 pieces/ 2.5 oz. (70 g.) total package of 4
Calories: 169 calories (estimate) in 2 pieces
Cost: $10.00 total package of 4 caramels
Purchased from: Serendipity, San Carlos, CA

Top 6 reasons why I really liked these caramels:

1.) No corn syrup*
2.) California wildflower honey was #1 ingredient
3.) Well balanced - dark chocolate coating helped balance sweet and salt (fleur de sel) flavors
4.) Gluten free
5.) *Someone once bet the folks behind Droga that a caramel couldn't be made without corn syrup, and they proved them wrong, big time
6.) Just the right touch of organic cream and butter

These great tasting, dark chocolate covered, wildflower honey -- also known as "Put Your Money on Honey" -- caramels with a light sprinkle of sea salt from Droga Confections (Los Angeles, CA) spoke for themselves. May there always be plenty of California wildflower honey for bees, and for people to enjoy in forms like this.

Today was Day #2 of Chocolate and Caramel and Toffee Theme Week.
