Today is National Caramel Day

Today is National Caramel Day

Americans began making sugary syrups in the 1600s, but the delicious, chewy caramel we know and love today was a more recent innovation. Caramel candy emerged during the 18th century and quickly became one of the most popular sweets on the market. In fact, Milton Hershey’s first business was the Lancaster Caramel Company! Caramel is made with butter, brown and white sugar, milk or cream, and vanilla. It is usually enjoyed as an ice cream topping, a candy filling, or on its own. You can also find caramel flavored puddings, popcorn, desserts, and coffee. To celebrate National Caramel Day, enjoy some of your favorite caramel candies or make a batch of homemade caramel!
