I received McCrea’s Candies in exchange for this post, however, as always opinions are 100% my own.
The Best Luxe Caramel McCrea’s Candies
Gift giving is a tough subject for some of us and I for one know that I am very hard to buy for. My husband and daughter each holiday always complain that they don’t know what to buy me because I’ve already got everything I need. *I’m not arguing, I’m pretty fortunate, really! But while working on our daughter’s wedding that I then turned into a Wedding Guide, I’ve found some pretty cool gidgets, gizmo’s and whatcha-ma-call-its. All kidding aside though one of my favorite “finds” has hit the list for when in doubt buy me candy! The McCrea’s Candies are a luxe caramel that is handcrafted in small batches and is delicious. I’ve quickly dubbed them The Best Luxe Caramel because they melt in your mouth and all taste amazing!
While the wedding isn’t for a few months, they sent me some to try and let me tell you some of them have me begging for more, while others I could do without. But my absolute favorite it the Café Noir because I can’t make it through the day without at least 3 cups of coffee a day. But since having these caramels in the house, I’m reaching for an afternoon caramel to enjoy instead of grabbing another cup of joe!
But more importantly McCrea’s Candies make a perfect gift for the bride and groom, wedding attendants gifts, or even welcome baskets for the guests. While the wedding is still a few months away I’ve been busy crafting up some gift baskets to give to the wedding attendants and of course included McCrea’s candies. But that hasn’t been the only thing that we have done, they have been putting my afternoon sweet tooth to rest for “testing” purposes of course.
