I don’t get a ton of free stuff sent to me because of this blog, but this is definitely one of the more interesting things I’ve gotten in the mail. Beercandy Inc. has developed what they call “The first candy for beer lovers.” The candies are actually chocolate covered caramels made with real craft beer and they’re available in four different flavors
The first candy is a caramel that is flavored with an IPA and covered in white chocolate. The second caramel is flavored with a Belgium Raspberry Lambic and covered in dark chocolate. Also offered are a Boston style Lager caramel covered in milk chocolate and a Stout flavored caramel surrounded by dark chocolate.
My first thought when I saw this candy was that it seemed pretty gimmicky, but after tasting all the different flavors you can clearly tell that the makers of Beercandy spent a lot of time making sure each of the beers and the chocolates that they’re paired with complement each other perfectly. My favorite was probably the stout caramel covered in dark chocolate, but they all tasted really good.
Wanna try Beercandy for yourself? Just head on over to Beercandy.com. A box of four chocolates will run you $7.25, while a box of 12 sells for $18.50.
