Confectionery News - Caramels One of Oprah's Favorites

Because we provide industrial coding and marking solutions for the candy and confectionery industry, we're always interested in confectionery news. Recently, we came across an article at Packaging Strategies regarding a family-owned caramel company based in Minnesota, Annie B's Caramels and Popcorn. This isn't just any caramel company, however; mega-celebrity Oprah Winfrey named the caramels one of her favorite things! What makes Annie B's so special? According to the article, the hand-crafted caramels are made of all natural ingredients produced locally including the sugar, butter, natural flavoring, and milk that go into the caramels. The company also offers a line of products that are 100% gluten free. Other than the cutting and wrapping processes of the delectable candy, each luxurious bite is hand-crafted and slow cooked in small batches using copper pots. Candy just like what you would have expected grandma to make. What flavors can you expect to find with Annie B's? Amaretto, butter rum, original, chocolate, black raspberry, maple, and sea salt caramel are a few of the delicious options. The company also offers a wide array of gift sets, caramel apple kits, and baking caramel. What about the 'popcorn' in the company's name? Oh, yes, their popcorn is also 'to die for' and is available in original caramel, sea salt caramel, sharp cheddar, jalapeno cheddar, and triple treat (original, caramel, and sharp cheddar). Oprah loves these hand-crafted caramels so much, the company offers a product called Oprah's Favorite Gift 2014, specially packaged for O readers.
