Welcome to Golden Gate Caramel!

If you crave a sweet, buttery glow, you have come to the right place! The Golden Gate Caramel Company. Inc. (dba Crack Caramel) an artisanal confectionery based in Marin County, California, makes handmade caramels in a HUGE variety of scrumptious gourmet flavors. Once this caramel melts on your tongue, you will be entirely addicted.

The Back Story: Why the "Crack"?
One Holiday season, a few years ago I made homemade caramels as gifts for my friends. Their reactions were so over-the-top positive that I decided to keep making caramel to see what happened. Soon, wherever I went, people greeted me with, "Oh! You're the Caramel Lady!" A friend shared my caramels at a local dance studio. The troupe immediately pronounced my caramels "totally addictive," and we have been jokingly calling it "crack" ever since.

The Caramel of Your Dreams

The Golden Gate Caramel Company started with my mom's awesome family recipe. Building on that excellence, I give each flavor its own unique formula. Yes, the vanilla caramel in my California Summer Salts© was created to pair precisely with that specific California sea salt.

Mission Statement
My goal is to create distinctive, fresh, hand-made caramels that deliver ecstasy in each and every bite. In short, to deliver the ultimate caramel experience!
