Hellimae's Salt Caramels

Everything we make tastes like your childhood, even if you've never had it before. Seriously: that's the goal we set for ourselves, to make the best version of whatever we do. All our caramels are rich, fresh and creamy, with some robust bitterness from deeply caramelized sugar. Nostalgia amped up with great ingredients and modern techniques.

MarketMaker was the most successful tool that gave me access to wholesale markets. A Farm-to-Fork grocery store in the next state was able to find my okra operation from a post (Buy-Sell Forum) in minutes.
