Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Caramel Theme Week. These individually wrapped chocolate caramels with sea salt, from Happy Goat (San Francisco, CA), were made in copper kettles and had a bit of taffy chew. However, their most unique attribute was: they were made with goat milk. I detected a very slight goat milk/goat butter taste, but nothing too objectionable.

For a bit of an exotic or tropical twist, try Happy Goat's Goat Milk Caramels flavored with coconut and hint of lime juice (no chocolate in these).

Why goat milk you ask? Sometimes goat milk is easier to digest than cow's milk. The company uses "Grade A goat milk that is Kosher certified," and growth hormones or antibiotics are not allowed. Milk comes from free range goats raised on small California farms.

At the bottom of the "About Us" Happy Goat web page, readers are asked what makes them happy. Today's answer: Eating Happy Goat caramels on a boat on the San Francisco Bay this afternoon.

Thank you to Sunita for gifting me these caramels to feature today. Thank you to Ken for the boat ride.
