Irish Whiskey Caramels

November 20, 2017 in Category: What's New

We’ve done a lot with caramel and chocolate over the years, both separately and together. We’ve added fruit, coffee, malt vinegar, sea salt, chili peppers, popping candy, popcorn, pretzels, crisped rice, puffed quinoa, mint, etc. etc. You could safely say that we’re “big fans” of the stuff.

So when you’re a big fan of chocolate and caramel who has already “done” chocolate and caramel in a big way, how do you make an impact? You come to the table (literally and figuratively) with a handle of Trader Joe’s Single Malt Irish Whiskey, that’s how.

For Trader Joe’s Irish Whiskey Caramels, our latest fine holiday confection, we’ve partnered with a revered Irish candymaker (makes sense, right?), who infuses their signature, slow-cooked caramel with our very own 8-year-old, cask strength, single malt Irish whiskey. This pairing made perfect sense to us—as during our Single Malt Irish Whiskey’s aging process, when it rests in American oak barrels, it is able to absorb some of the flavors and characteristics of the oak, including notes of vanilla, honey, and—what else?—caramel.

Once we marry the whiskey and the caramel, we take this gooey, boozy mixture and enrobe it in rich, dark chocolate. The result is somethin’ special. You may have tasted liquor-infused candies before, but none as fine as these.

Chocolate, caramel, and Irish whisky—a holiday treat for the ages. Each bite is a confectionery experience worth coveting—especially at our price of $3.99 for a 3.7-ounce box. You’ll find Trader Joe’s Irish Whiskey Caramels in our candy section.
