Our July 2010 Chocolate of the Month was so beloved that we couldn't bear to stop making them (actual quote from a fan: “Please please please make them a regular!!!!”). We’ve partnered with Friends of Animals, a group that tirelessly advocates for the rights of animals to live free on their own terms, to offer these special caramels again, with $10 from each box going directly to Friends of Animals. Your purchase of these chocolates supports not only a tiny chocolate company devoted to sustainable practices, but also a grassroots animal advocacy group doing vital and difficult work.
Here’s what people are saying about the caramels on our Facebook page:
“Seriously—the best thing you've ever made.”
“The rosemary sea salt caramels are extraordinary. Ah! Now, all other chocolates must meet the fate of being compared to yours.”
“OK, when I said they were delicious, it may have been an understatement—my husband and I ate 2 boxes in 2 days!!! We must sound like pigs, but those caramels are the best things ever. For real.”
“I ate a piece when I got home this afternoon, letting it get to room temperature as you advised. Divine! Love how a hint of the rosemary taste infuses the caramel the whole time it melts away. This is the best chocolate ever.”
Oh, and Isa Moskowitz, vegan cookbook author queen supreme, said: “Those were incredible. I’m still dreaming about them.”
Each box contains 9 dark chocolates filled with rich and buttery (but entirely vegan) caramel, infused with super fancy fleur de sel sea salt, rosemary from our garden, garnished with a touch of rosemary-infused sea salt.
It's important to eat caramels at room temperature, for the best flavor and texture. Caramels will keep one month in a sealed container at cool room temperature.
