Caramels are a special kind of confection. There is nothing better than snuggling in front of a good movie and letting a gooey caramel candy melt in your mouth. There are many different types of caramel, from sauces to wrapped treats, and many of these are easily made at home. Caramel is so versatile it can even be made in the microwave! While the exact history of caramel is unknown, it is recorded that about 1650 American settlers were making hard candies in kettles. Between this time and the early 1880’s, some ingenious candy maker added fat and milk while boiling sugar and water, creating what is now known as caramel. During this time, caramels were also made with sugar beet juice because refined sugar was expensive and hard to come by.Caramels are chewy because of the heat activation between the sugar ingredients and the milk solids. This creates the caramelized flavor. Caramels are made when sugar syrup is cooked and then milk and fat is added. The mixture is heated and stirred constantly in a kettle until it becomes milky or light brown. Caramels heated further actually turn into toffees.
Caramel Gets Popular During the mid 1800’s, most American candy manufacturers made hard candies, but some also made caramels. Milton Hershey’s candy making empire did not begin with chocolate. Instead, it began with caramels. His first company was Lancaster Caramel Company. Interestingly, Hershey discovered the joys of chocolate while seeking candy coatings for Lancaster Caramels. Hershey sold Lancaster Caramels in 1900 to The American Caramel Company for an unheard of 1 million dollars.In 1895, founder August Goetze began making several confectionary candies in Baltimore, Maryland. He founded Goetze’s Candy Company, another important face in the history of caramels. By 1940, Goetze’s Candy Company decided to produce only one candy. This was the undeniable delicious Caramel Cream, a caramel candy with a chewy center. Brach’s Candy is another important candy maker in the history of caramels. This company was founded in 1904 by Emil Brach. The first store in Chicago was small, and the caramels were made in the back of the store. Eventually, Brach’s began to gain notoriety for fresh and inexpensive caramels. The company then met its first retail customer, Siegel, Cooper & Co department stores.*source
