What woman does not like chocolate, caramel and candy?
Really though-- have you ever encountered a woman for her to say "eww-- please get that rich chocolate away from me. How dare you!!"
I have not. nope. And I challenge you to find a woman (or man) who will not like the heavenly confections from Calabasas Candy Co. Calabasas is a small town near the coast in Southern California. It's where the healthy and the beautiful converge. Don't get me wrong-- they love their candy and sweets there too, but they choose only the best to devour. The best organic cocoa beans, the best sugars, the best milk and butter-- and Calabasas Candy Co. only chooses the best. They have recently been featured in LA Magazine's May issue of "LA's List." A huge compliment for a small scale candy shop.
I was lucky to try out their lemon caramel and lavender nougat. heavenly... I like chocolate, but it's not my top choice. Honestly I would dive in to a buttery caramel over a chocolate any day. So needless to say I was thrilled when I opened up the box of nougat and caramel! The lemon caramel was sweet and rich, not overly lemony, but rather a sweet hint of tartness. Almost like there was essence of lemon in the caramel. Very subtle and delicious!
The lavender nougat was divine. It hit the spot when I needed a mid afternoon pick me up. A little bite was like a lavender field. That smell, the intensity all rolled in to this perfect little candy. yum
Calabasas Candy Co not only makes nougat and caramel though-- oh, no. They make marshmallows too. And I don't mean those stale ones you see in a bag at the grocery stores. I mean Caramallows, and delicious Peruvian Chocolate Caramels. The price could literally be a million dollars a pound and it would be worth the cost-- but nope-- try $9 dollars for 15 pieces of Caramallow! It's a steal ladies.
