Because everyone can’t live in Le Mars, we wanted to share one of the tastiest and best kept secrets in town. Known for their home-made candy sales, among other delicious confections like chocolate candies and fudge, the women of the Hospital Auxiliary are famous for a little delicacy known as the Auxiliary Caramel. Available ONLY during the winter holidays – and sometimes for Valentine’s Day – this little treat, hand made and hand cut then wrapped in squares of waxed paper are sold by the piece or by the pound. Nothing melts the heart or thrills the palette quite like biting into a Hospital Auxiliary Caramel. Our goal was to pay tribute to these ladies’ handiwork by creating a flavor that not only captured the essence of those melt-in your mouth caramels we crave, but also to pay homage to the oh, so good fudge and chocolate candies that sell alongside the caramels. Copper Kettle Caramel is about as close as you are going to get to the home-made flavors of the Hospital Auxiliary Candy Sales.
