McCrea’s caramels are made in Boston with all-natural ingredients that are locally sourced when possible—and they skip corn syrup. This results in surprisingly smooth caramels, which Jason makes distinctive with unexpectedly delicious flavors like Black Lava Sea Salt and Single Malt Scotch.
Jason started making caramels years ago at home with his regular pots, pans, and candy thermometer. Today he uses a pretty similar small batch, by-hand approach, with a few smart upgrades—like a batch cooker that regulates temperature and a retooled, early 20th-century wrapping machine that speeds up the caramel cutting and wrapping process. Those charming details, along with the fabulous ingredients and flavors, make McCrea’s candies extra sweet in our book.
