All we make is caramel. Our goal is to make the best caramel anyone has ever tasted.

Our Intent

Our goal is to make the very best caramel possible, using the purest, finest ingredients available. We have never added preservatives, artificial colors or artificial flavors to our caramel. When some of our customers expressed concerns regarding corn syrup we tested other syrups and found tapioca syrup made an even yummier caramel. We transitioned immediately.

Caramel Ingredients

Every single ingredient is an essential component to our creating the best tasting caramel ever. There are no fillers.

Non-GMO Brown Sugar, Non-GMO Tapioca Syrup, rbST-Free* Heavy Cream, rbST-Free* Butter, (Chocolate and Salted Mocha Caramel contain Unsweetened Chocolate), Fructose, Milk, Sugar, Natural Flavor**, (Cinnamon Caramel contains Ground Cinnamon), (All Salt Caramel contain Sea Salt), (Espresso and Salted Mocha Caramel contain Coffee), (Chipotle Caramel contains Chipotle), (Mint Caramel contains Peppermint Oil), Salt.

*According to the FDA, no significant difference has been shown between milk derived from rbST treated and non-rbST treated cows.
**In alignment with FDA regulations, we use the term “natural flavor” to refer to pure vanilla extract.

GMOs

Our caramel may contain ingredients produced with genetic engineering. In fact, less than 7% of the ingredients used in Béquet® Gourmet Caramel could contain GMOs.

GMOs have been identified by some customers as a concern. Two of our ingredients may contain GMOs. We sourced non-GMO versions of these ingredients and tried to substitute them in our recipe. Unfortunately, taste tastes showed that the results weren’t good. We diligently tried all non-GMO options but could not find an acceptable replacement. We even invested months in trying to make one of these ingredients ourselves! Replacing the two ingredients that may contain GMOs was the largest new product development effort in our 16 year history! We were so disappointed that we have not been able to make a caramel as silky smooth, creamy, and delicious without these ingredients. As new options are identified, we will try them. We are committed to making the best caramel possible and look forward to our next break through allowing us to raise the bar once again.

No Corn Syrup

All varieties of Béquet Gourmet Caramel are made with Tapioca Syrup, no corn syrup is used.

Shelf Life

Our caramel is exquisite for the first month and a half, and still very good for the next couple of months. Fresher caramel is better. Caramel past the best if used by date might not taste as fresh or be as silky smooth. To extend freshness, refrigerate or freeze our caramel in tightly closed bag.
