National Caramel Month is here, just in time for Halloween activities! Now is the perfect time to find those charming local spots to pick up some caramel treats for the whole family. Or place a special order for holiday get-togethers. American Legend is here to help you get your caramel fix for National Caramel Month. Here are the best places near our Colorado American Legend communities for just that:
1. Aurora, Colorado: Kilwins
Kilwins, an institution since the 1940s, has everything from caramel and chocolate to ice cream! The original caramel recipes were created by Don Kilwin and are still made the same way today: using traditional copper kettles for the perfect combination of soft, creamy AND chewy. Whether you are looking for traditional milk caramels or the always-popular Kilwins Bear Claw (our personal favorite!), Kilwins has it all.
2. Loveland, Colorado: Sunny Jim’s Candy Ranch
This old-timey candy store is family-owned and operated. One of its most popular items, the Rocky Mountain Frogs, is a chocolate-covered caramel chew. YUM! The store offers a variety of candies that are homemade and includes even sugar-free options so everyone can enjoy a sweet treat. The candies aren't the only treat you get in this shop though. The owners go out of their way to make sure everyone who walks through the door has a wonderful experience from start to finish.
3. Timnath, Colorado: Colorado Candy Company
The Colorado Candy Company offers small batches of a variety of unique candies! They only use natural flavors and no added preservatives in everything they serve. The store specializes in seasonal treats, chewy caramels, rich chocolate truffles and old-school treats like hard candy, brittle, ribbon candy and even candy art for special events! This local candy store truly has it all!
4. Windsor, Colorado: Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory
This candy store features a number of caramel options for customers to choose from, including seasonal recipes, all made in an old-fashioned copper kettle! But they are best known for their caramel apples, made in-store and baked fresh daily. Go with a traditional caramel candy apple or enjoy a pecan caramel apple. Kids love the candy apple covered in M&M’s but the English toffee caramel apple is our favorite! It’s a perfect fall treat!
Caramel has an addictive taste and texture that feels like home and fall. There’s no better time that National Caramel Month to visit one of these local spots and stock up on all your favorite caramel candies. American Legend homes is excited to see what sweet treats you’ve found around town this month!
