Caramel Gift Box
What’s inside this box? Caramels through the ages: the caramel and caramel marshmallow aka “caramel biscuit” circa 1883, made when caramels and marshmallows were new; Coconut Longboys and Goetze’s Caramel Creams, among the growing family of turn-of-century penny candies; the iconic Sugar Daddy, circa 1925; 1940s caramel cubes, perfectly square and perfectly caramel; mid-1900s bourbon caramels and the baby of them all—bourbon caramels with salt.
A Bit of History
Caramel was invented in the 1850s, a true American original based on the process of caramelizing sugar. Soon, people added caramel to everything from chocolates to a new treat called candy bars. Today caramel is one of the nation’s favorite candies.
